in steem •  26 days ago

In case you haven't heard, I'm organizing a Invest in Steem Social Media Blast Day. To get involved, please check out the announcement post.

As part of the campaign, I would like to create a "50 reasons to invest in STEEM" post (or 100, or however many we can come up with) for people to use when pitching STEEM to potential investors. Help me come up with the list of reasons.

Please share your ideas in the comments below.

Hi. You probably already know, but I just wanted to remind everyone that the Steem Blast event is TODAY!

Here is an article that has all the details about the event:

Individual user

It's entry-level crypto for the layman.
Account names are names.
Savings account, powerdown period and account recovery as security features.
Troll discouragement built in, attracts the best type of people.
Encouraging others with tips is great for one's mental health.
Rapid block times, fee-free transactions.
Choice of condensers.
Stable hedge. Take gains off the table with SBDs instead of moving to an exchange or bank.
Steemmonsters. (Another great hedge)
Ecosystem

DPOS is more decentralised than having a handful of mining pools. (Every phone call between China and Iceland could be collusion to 51% attack bitcoin)
Airdrops without contentious hardforks deliver the best of both worlds.
Proxy witness voting.
@aggroed and @yabapmatt have commissioned a metamask style browser extension to keep keys off the net.

I was inspired by your post to provide my reasons for investing in Steem in my own post.

Through @oracle-d they can get bloggers to write about their product or business! And the investment can be reversed because they can power down.

Fashionably late to the party as always!

Build a disruptive web business by adding rewards
Quora was recently valued at $1.8bn and raised another $80m in capital. Musing.io arguably has a better business model since it also rewards its contributors. Disrupt the existing big players by building rewards into your business. Get off to a fast start by leveraging Steem's existing communities of contributors and marketers and their global reach.

Micro-gig-economies
You've built your ecological website to save the world, Ilovetrees.com, but now you face the mountainous task of travelling around the world to collect photos and write text on all those different trees. Carbon footprint! Instead base your website on Steem and outsource this arduous but worthy task to Steem's audience of dedicated contributors. Reward the best contributors and see your data-trees grow!

Similar ideas, but I think that one of the real strengths of Steem will end up being engaging communities to help build and grow things and rewarding them for their efforts, essentially "employing" thousands of people with different skills for an hour or so a day.

  1. Steem blockchain, through its DPoS consensus, gives stakeholders a real opportunity to be a part of the decision-making process when it comes to the future of social media.

  2. Steem is by far the most widely used blockchain by normal people. However, the number of active users has huge potential to increase - the most popular app right now (Steemit) has quite bad UX, but people use it anyway. The more people use Steem, the more people use crypto. That's a real gateway to the decentralized world.

  • Most of the crypto projects are just ideas without working products , STEEM has working DAPPS with real world adoption.
  • 90% ( or whatever the number is) of ICOs fail within 1 year ( or whatever the number is) , STEEM has been gaining momentum since 2 years
  • Is it really a currency when no-one is using it ? STEEM is being used by people across the globe ( Africa , India , Americas , ANZ) TODAY !!
  • Everyone knows FB needs to go the way of myspace , the real question is will you be "at the right place and right time" for next gen , STEEM !!
·

Some more

  • Do most of your coins just sit there in wait of price rise ? make your coins work for you while you wait for MOON time !!

STEEM- curating the internet , one post at a time.

·

I think these are a great launchpad @itstime. If anyone has the accurate numbers, I can start to concept some images to visualize these ideas.

·
·

Accurate numbers ...what are those ?

Just make up..spread that FOMO

LAMBO LAMBO LAMBO

·
·
·

lol, well in that case

  • 99.999% of ICO's fail in the first 5 minutes, and those that invest in them somehow lose all their hair. Steem has been gaining momentum for the last 37 years since Ned was born.

Gotta go big or go home :p

·
·
·
·

That sounds a tad unrealistic , gotta make it truthy ,

throw random fractions like - 91.5 ICO fail within 159.52 days

Keep in mind the golden rule , it doesn't need to BE TRUE , it needs to SOUND TRUE.

·
·
·
·
·

A friend of mine bought ICO's, then 6 months later; Bam, herpes.

·
·
·
·
·
·

So , he had a good run for 6 months ? still much longer than 86.7 % of ICOs

BTW did I mention STEEM grows hair back on bald heads...it just does !!

  1. It's cheap right now.
  2. It should go up a lot eventually.

I love elevator pitches but..... with me the NEED to be SHORT so I would say to My potential investor
FRIEND ( gotta start polite ) WHY NOT?
That Will get the conversation going and than I would show him My best blog
BAM in the pocket !!!

I HOPE
Tim good luck with the Steem social media blast
GREETZ from the Netherlands

En na een tijdje sta je mooi te kakken, als jouw investeerder zijn geld kwijt is.

·
·

Haha grappig a dutch reply, @nokodemion said but after a while your the one who looks like a fool as your investor lost his money.
My aswer: its not My investor though , take a walk on the wild side off life if your investing you know There risks always. Steem is pretty safe and if you HODL its du-able.
I think!
@nokodemion Thank for your reply.
What would be your elevator pitch ?
See you around

·
·
·

Think together, plan together, work together and someday live together with you...

Would that do it?

Living together and invest .... YEAH sounds good !

Hahha, Hopefully everyone gets a laugh out of the multi player game even though they might be feeling some pain right now. :-)

Main ones for non-technical folk:

Content Creator - With any crypto you can make money through price appreciation. STEEM is unique in that you can make even more without selling your crypto by simply creating content. And you get to grow your global audience at the same time, which may lead to other paid creative opportunities. The more you invest in STEEM, the faster you will gain traction on the platform with your content.

Not a Content Creator - With any crypto you can make money through price appreciation. STEEM is unique in that you can make even more without selling your crypto by simply loaning the use of it to content creators on the platform. Ownership of your coins always stays with you, but they pay you between 15-30% interest just for using the power of your holdings to be more successful on the platform with their content.

If you own a business, you can get returns from your consumers attention.

Rather than trying to get big players to buy STEEM as investors. I think SteemIt should concentrate on getting users of the platform to buy STEEM POWER so that they participate in the platform more fully.

·

It's one platform to handle all of your social media needs... blogging, Live stream video, recorded video, pictures, audio and more!

REASON #38: Multi-proof-of-brain distribution of rewards on the Steem Blockchain enables charities, humanitarian organizations and businesses to decentralize distribution of value through an accountable community in a fully transparent way. You can't do that anywhere else in the world

ask the investor if he still uses a 33k6 modem to dial in into the internet. If the answer is no, the ask : why are you still using facebook and not Steem(it)

·

Omdat er hier geen geintegreerde messenger app is. En FB is gratis, en hij loopt geen risico dat hij zijn centen kwijt is...

Hold on a second. That's one big elevator in the picture;)
Joking aside nice idea @timcliff . I have one pitch which I think is unfortunate but may entice investors.

You can pay your posts way to the top of the trending page no matter its quality and be the first thing that anyone sees when they enter the sites.

You want FIFTY reasons???

Good luck! :)

·

I'll work with what I have. I think it is quite possible to come up with 50. I know you are very proactive about campaigning to fix a lot of the platform's issues, which is good, but we need to have an evangelical side too where we actually talk positively about the project to the outside world. That is not to say that we mislead anyone or cover up things that are wrong, but even with all the issues we are facing, there is a lot of good going on too (IMO).

Once SMTs get launched next year...ERC-20 based token system will be a thing of past...
Just compare steem blockchain with ethereum...and you will have your reason to invest in steem...e.g. fast transaction speed, free of cost transactions and ability to handle high network traffic.

·

I agree. I still feel there is a place for "general purpose" blockchains such as Ethereum and EOS, but I do think that Steem will have a unique advantage in terms of the things we offer, and will carve out its own niche of success.

·
·

No doubt!...:)...

·
·

can you educate us what is the "general purpose" of ETHER and "specialized" purpose of STEEM that lends to 3 seconds transfer and more transactions per sec.

#ELI5 if possible.

·
·
·

Well the three second confirmation times have more to do with us using DPoS instead of PoW. DPoS is much faster and more efficient than PoW in many ways.

Regarding "general purpose" vs "specialized", general purpose is setup to use smart contracts, which allow people to write applications to do pretty much anything. (Take CryptoKitties for example.) Specialized does not allow developers to create any app they want, but for the apps that are supported - it tries to do a really good job at doing them well. By specializing in a narrow niche, it allows us to become the best at it.

·
·
·
·

Gotta be honest , general purpose sounds evolutionary and specialized sounds creationist.

I am sure it's more nuanced than that in the details of the implementation. Maybe in the sense that specialized can support a class of apps vs choosing specific apps?

·
·
·
·
·

Well, if you go to google.com, what can you do? Search. That is pretty much it. Google.com does one thing, but they do it really well. Is it bad that google.com won't do your taxes for you?

·
·
·
·
·
·

That pre-supposes as a fact that one thing you do really well is a very valuable ( also the search function is then support by the complicated ad system in the background).

An evolutionary approach would let the system run multiple experiments and land on the one which has inherent value.

As I noted in previous comment it's possible that even within specialized nature , evolutionary models are supported by building for class of apps vs chosen apps.

Thanks for your responses in any case.

Normally if there is a return from any marketable material, one needs to consider when the price of such material will fall and at the end will end up in a great yield. I think most investors have the mind of making profit and will also not mind if there is a loss. Steem is a most valuable resources at hand, so it will be nice if one invest on it and make a better return.

Investing in steem will also give the investors upper hand of coming in contact with a reputable investor. Through this medium , they can make friends and become coinvestors or partners.

I do like the elevator pitch bullets you have though :)

  • 3 second transaction times
  • functional utility coin, two years old
  • easily transacted with usernames, via multiple exchanges & wallet points of access, mobile and desktop
  • 50 thousand daily global consumers using it already, and over a million alleged potential wallets (yeah, yeah, I know. but still a lot DO have humans who would use them...)
·
·

I think technology itself and technical features should be brought up when only asked about. I belive true selling power is in Steem communities that any investor can relate to based on their interests and can eaily be showcased. You like music? We have openmic, dsound, etc.

·
·
·

Kinda similar point to my "a place to spend your money - or earn it"

Investors will come in bulk to easy to conceptualize stuff, if people are buying water at a concert the investor buys more water. if it's beer, he calls that guy instead. If it's nothing, he goes and invests in movie theaters instead.

He never cares how the water filters or kegs work, only what people are buying or selling a lot of.

·

I disagree with a lot of your position. I replied to the post.

·
·

Thank you.

·

We also agree, bringing new investment in is KEY to the sustainability and future growth of Steem. They question is, what are we doing as a community about bringing new investors in?

·
·

Tim and I are on two sides of that coin here, and our most recent posts reflect options.

·
·
·

Interesting, I took a look and replied...

·
·
·
·

Thanks, your reply was thoughtful and I liked it :)

I think there should be a way shared to mine steem easily. Like we can do this in browser mining.
If this can happen, I will be very thankful to steem develpers.

·

There is a way to mine steem:
Write good content.
At least it should be.
You could also farm steem, by buying Upvotes on your articles.

·

It is not possible to mine STEEM. With the Steem blockchain, blocks are produced by the witnesses. Witnesses are assigned blocks based on the amount of stake-weighted votes they receive from stakeholders.

·
·

Oh now it's clear.
Thanks @timcliff

·
·

so how did people mine it in the beginning ? I have always wondered ..was it the case that witness positions were limited to the selected few ?

·
·
·

Mining was supported at the time the blockchain originally launched, but was disabled in favor of 100% block production via witnesses in a previous hardfork.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Edited comment makes more sense... have witnesses to run services in lieu of mining.

·
·
·
·
·

If it really made sense, you would run....

·
·
·

A large amount was ninja mined and collected by Steemit Inc and early founders / investors. Then a very smart individual with a bunch of accounts with the word rabbit in them developed a GPU miner and basically was taking all the Proof of Work rewards at one point. Then everything switched over to Delegated Proof of Stake with all block production through the witness nodes. Most of which were put in power by an anonymous ninja mine account @freedom To my knowledge we never figured out who this account was. It might have been @dan or @ned . There were also other early accounts with huge amounts of power that solidified the oligarchy.

If you are into mazes you can check out the different wallet accounts that Steemit Inc has where they waterfall different funds down an intricate maze. I'm not sure why....because we can all see it. But it does get confusing.

https://steemit.com/@steemit/transfers
https://steemit.com/@steemit2/transfers
https://steemit.com/@alpha/transfers

The interesting thing is that the @alpha account seems to earn a lot from @buildawhale and @appreciator which is very strange. I'm not really sure what is going on. Have fun with that!

·
·
·
·

All I care about is my LAMBO
...

I know what you are saying but whatchu gonna do , founders/owners always take the big stake , Mr. Satoshi also has a big Bitcoin bin , no?

·
·
·
·
·

I hear you man! You have to protect your own interest if you want that LAMBO.

I don't have a problem with the founder / owners getting rich but it has to be a factor when you are thinking about your money.

Satoshi's coins have never moved. They are constantly flowing to an exchange to be sold. If you look at https://steemit.com/@alpha/transfers You will see large sets of STEEM flowing to Bittrex to likely be dumped.

As investors we have to be aware of who might dump on our heads.

·
·
·
·
·
·

I have written about same concerns in past..but those are the cards we are dealt. .make lemonade with the cards you have. .or something like that

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Yeah it is something we just have to note and determine if we are going to continue on here. At this time I'm going to continue to post.

That is great idea, in order to invest the people want to make sure that it is not a flop, who wants to lose their investment? Nobody.

There are many different reasons why we are on Steem community like myself, have been started exactly a year ago on 25.08.17 I am still there, since I started my blog, I have never been before in any of social media at all, this is my first experience. I found my hobby back after a pause of 15-17 years adn last 365 days I have created large number of artwork, only because I found people who supported me and other artists who encourage me. I learnt new mediums I never used before: acrylic and oil painting.

Been on Steemit opened new side of my life, my latest collection I put together on my anniversary post, if you are curious, welcome to take a loo.

Hi. You probably already know, but I just wanted to remind everyone that the Steem Blast event is TODAY!

Here is an article that has all the details about the event:

I like this.
The best time to buy it, right now.
The best blockchain.

There are billions of dollars being left on the table, unclaimed for when Steemit.com does not utilize its platform for advertisement. Why?

I simply think that Steemit.com doesn't really need investors more than it needs to start its own advertising service. Allow people to advertise their amazon businesses or any kinds of businesses on the steemit platform. There is billions dollars worth to make out of simply advertising. Why not? Once steemit does this, bam! All problems solved.

I believe they are already working on something along these lines: https://github.com/steemit/condenser/pull/2908

would be cool if we could go more main stream
