4. Setting Beneficiaries on Steempeak

@buildteam has posted a very useful guide on how to set beneficiaries on SteemPeak.

Beneficiaries allow you to divert some of the post rewards automatically to other accounts.

This includes sending a percentage of a post's rewards to the @null account, which is known as 'burning' rewards. Burning rewards helps to reduce the overall supply of STEEM, which in turn should help reduce inflation and increase the price of STEEM.

These Steem News posts are currently set to burn 10% of post rewards...

5. Who are you writing for?

Leading Steem proponent @justineh poses the question "who are you creating your posts for?".

Are you targeting a particular audience with what you produce or are you just posting for the autovotes?

Will your posts get engagement? Will they attract new eyes to Steem...

9. SteemLeo spreads the wealth

@taskmaster4450 looks at the @steem.leo investment focused tribe as an example of how a new wealth distribution is emerging amongst the token communities...

10. Separate out the @null posts

Long time Steemian @transisto puts forward the suggestion that posts that have @null as a beneficiary should be handled differently on steemit and other interfaces.

They should be non-downvotable and should have a separate trending page...

Note - Steem News is now being published via This is to take advantage of their drafting and templating facilities, as well as allowing 10% of the post rewards to be burnt by setting a beneficary to @null. Thank you @steempeak
