RE: STEEM Is NOT Steemit. STEEM Is More Valuable Than Steemit.

in #steem4 years ago

Steem is the blockchain, Steem is the coin, SteemIt is the Front-end UI, so in a word, Steem Rocks.


Agree with this, Steem has a very bright future, however this correction will probably go deeper. I cover STEEM and SBD in my latest blog post:

We are steemians :)

I agree with you.

I actually don't necessarily agree that STEEM by itself is useful. What makes STEEM useful is the ecosystem that STEEMIT create around it that gives its usefulness. One can come up with other unique characteristics that make other alt-coin unique like ADA, XRP, IOTA, etc.

It's the ecosystem. Alone, STEEM would just be one of the coins out there that competes for people attributing value to it. To me, there can be so many supplies out there for other coins that it renders the argument that each coin has a finite supply obsolete.

That said, if we can work hard and make this ecosystem better, STEEMIT won't be just the only manifestation of the usage of STEEM but there will be other real life scenario that can leverage STEEM capabilities.

I listed the characteristics in the post which make STEEM, by itself, better than most other cryptocurrencies. I think we can evaluate things purely within that category. Of course we can also look at the broader ecosystem (and we should), but I still it creates confusion for investors looking just at characteristics they want in a cryptocurrency.

Have you looked at the steem backed dollar?

Great post I am new to all of this and this really helps me understand what Steemit and steem are.
