How to Buy STEEM Guide

10 days ago
71 in steem

A year ago when my brother @dogguy first told me about Steemit, I instantly wanted to invest in the project! Luckily, I had a brother who knew a lot about Bitcoins, and I was able to buy STEEM coins through him.

After a while I decided to explore how to buy more on my own, and I realized that it is a complicated process if you haven't done it before. I wrote this guide back in 2016 to try and help people through the process. Since then, the websites in the guide have changed, and a lot of people are still using the old guide - so I decided it would be good to post an updated version.

Short Version

  1. Step 1: Convert your money into bitcoin (BTC).
  2. Step 2: Use your bitcoin to buy STEEM.


(That's it!)

Buying bitcoin (BTC)

  1. First you will need to signup for a website that allows you to buy bitcoin. I personally use Coinbase.com, because it has been around for a long time and is popular. If you don't have an account yet, it may take a couple of days to verify your identity before they will let you to make a purchase. LocalBitcoins.com is another popular website. You can also Google "how to buy bitcoin" or "how to buy bitcoin in [your area]" to get alternative ways of purchasing BTC based on where you live.
  2. Once you are signed up for the bitcoin purchasing website, login and purchase bitcoins using the site's "Trade/Buy" interface. Different websites will have different ways of doing it. Here is what it looks like in Coinbase:
  3. After your purchase is complete, you will see the bitcoin appear in your BTC wallet.

Use your bitcoin to buy STEEM

  1. First, open your STEEM wallet. It is located in your profile menu in the upper right on Steemit.com.
  2. Click on the dropdown in your wallet next to STEEM, and click on the link to "Buy".
  3. This will take you to an external website BlockTrades.us.
  4. On the BlockTrades.us site, select "Bitcoin" from the send menu.
  5. Select "Steem" from the receive menu. (Note, you can also optionally chose Steem Power if you want the STEEM powered up.)
  6. Enter your Steem/Steemit account name for "Your receive address".
  7. Click the "Get Deposit Address" button.
  8. It will output a bitcoin wallet address. Copy this wallet address to your clipboard.
  9. Go back to your BTC wallet, and send the amount of BTC that you want to use to purchase STEEM to that address. Make sure the wallet address matches exactly with what is shown on the Blocktrades website.
  10. After you send the BTC to that address, you will need to wait a little while for the transaction to confirm on the network. Most sites like Coinbase will show you the status of the transaction. Periodically check back and refresh. Once the transaction is confirmed, it will show up in your Steemit.com wallet!

That's it!

Think of the devil and there he is. This awesome helpful blog couldn't have come anytime earlier. I am a newbie, yet to post my intro and was wondering today morning about this whole steem purchase thingy. And here it is, a comprehensive guide to buy steem. My mentor @firepower recommended me that I follow you to receive some great advise and blogs and how right he was.
Thanks @timcliff.

Thank you so much @timcliff for the very informative post! 😀 I'd like to try to invest and follow your steps. As a matter of fact I've known to bitcoin and cryptocurrencies just this month. With all your posts I am learning a lot. My big thanks to you. It is worth following you! 😀💖

Wow just 2 steps, that's seems easy!! Really nice guide to buy Steem easily. By the way, what do you recommend. Buying Steem or Steem power?

·
71
  ·  10 days ago

I like to keep around 80-90% of my STEEM powered up so I can have more influence in the platform, as well as earn higher curation rewards. I try to keep 10-20% in liquid STEEM though, so if there is a price spike I can cash in on some profits. A lot of times you can even sell on a spike then buy back in a dip and end up with more STEEM than you started with.

If you are able to use ETH instead of BTC you will save time & money. The transactions are faster and with much lower fees.

Thank you, your steps are neat and easy to understand. That's very clever for you to invest in Steemit at such an early stage and STEEM has already risen over 400% in a year. Smart choice!

·
71
  ·  10 days ago

Well, I wish I could claim that I got in that early. Technically I bought in right when it was around $4 per coin :)

·
·

  ·  10 days ago

@timcliff what do you think is the future price of Steem in the next 24 months? Taking in account the growth of Steemit.com for the past months I feel it can grow to 1BN , 2 BN , 4 BN in Marketcap?

Actual it is at 500MIO $. I would like to have your take on that!

Cheers,
Christian

  ·  10 days ago

Sorry, I don't do predictions :)
I am still continuing to keep more in the site than I am cashing out though, because I do believe that in the long term my STEEM will be worth a lot more than it is today.

Oh, such a pity, never mind, Steemit definitely will have a bright future that many and many users are pouring into this platform now

·
·
·
71
  ·  9 days ago

Yeah, I have never regretted the purchase I made (even when STEEM dropped below 10 cents a coin). I always have and still do believe that there is a ton of upwards potential :)

49
  ·  10 days ago

Nice tutorial and I am sure it will help those who just want steem only. I would think those who already own bitcoin know how to buy any other crypto.

·
71
  ·  9 days ago

You'd be surprised. I had purchased BTC before (to play an online casino game), but it was still an extra set of things to learn to be able to use it to buy STEEM. I'm fairly technical, so it wasn't too bad - but I've tried to explain the process to many of my friends and a lot of them find it quite confusing. "Wait, you are telling me I need to use three different websites..."

·
·
49
  ·  9 days ago

Yeah, it's definitely not a one stop shop for crypto sometimes. I can see why non-tech people stay away

55
  ·  10 days ago

That was nice of you to write this article for the newcomers.. Looks amazing though probably only crypto traders would probably buy steem.. Most people come to make profit w/o investment.
Cheers and much love for the great post :)

49
  ·  9 days ago

Thank you for sharing this informative post to me.I do not know how to buy steemit before, this post could really help me to buy steemit and I think Steemit would rise so I would make use of my bitcoin to buy some Steemit. As Bitcoin is now hitting the record high, I think Steemit would have higher potential to rise when I hold it in current price.

·
71
  ·  9 days ago

I agree. One thing just to clarify - when you are buying the coins, you are technically buying "STEEM" coins. Steemit is a website that interfaces with the 'Steem blockchain'. The tokens are technically generated by the blockchain (not the website).

  ·  10 days ago

I used to use your old guide and I am honestly so happy that the process continues to get easier. The next time you write this guide it'll be even more simple!!

·
71
  ·  10 days ago

I look forward to the day when I can write a guide on how to go directly from USD to STEEM :)

·
·
48
  ·  10 days ago

I 2nd that! I'm wondering why it hasn't been done already? Someone could make a fortune if they knew how to replicate that Internal Market and make it so that buyers and sellers can trade directly with each other and the middleman acts like PayPal and takes care of all the transactions while collecting a processing fee! And not just USD, but Canadian and Euro as well.

·
·
·
71
  ·  9 days ago

There are several million dollars of regulation fees to pay if anyone wants to do it in the US. That's why there are very few sites besides Coinbase that offer that type of thing.

·
·
·
·
48
  ·  9 days ago

Its all about controlling the market, isn't it? But since the blockchain is everywhere at the same time, can it not avoid US controls? I guess its the fact that we need to access our local banks to move the fiat currency that is the sticking point! Darn!

Yes, definitively!

Your detailed and simplified way of explaining a hitherto complex procedure for some of us who r not vast on such things shd make me vote for ubas professor emeritus of steemit. Am happy to be following you as I get to learn sometn new from ur blog posts. Keep steeming for us. Upvoted

Thank you, @timcliff! I have so far bought Steem on Poloniex and Bittrex and sent it here.

It looks like your way is faster since you buy from within your wallet here. Is there also a price difference or any other (hidden) advantages to doing it directly from the Steem wallet?
I know small things can make a big difference here :)

Thank you!
Anja

Most likely you will get a better exchange rate if you use an external exchange like Poloniex or Bittrex. The "in site" tool (BlockTrades) is better for convenience and lower risk.

It sounds like you and your brother have a very good relationship. I had told my brother about Bitcoin when I was in highschool and it was practically free to get Bitcoin. Because of my lack of resources (money for pc) i was unable to mine/ get some. He completly disregarded me and told me that i was dubm. couple months later it exploded to 300 dollars.

44

Well I am a huge idiot and locked myself out of my Coinbase account and everyone knows they're swamped with so many new customers lately so who knows when I can buy some Steem. After I think I am going to buy Steem every single month.

49
  ·  10 days ago

Thank you, I was wondering how. Your explanation is plain and simple. I am using Luno is it also OK?

·

nice tutorial for regular people to also get behind the technicals. I was also planning to do something similar in German. Also for Iota, Ethereum and realted wallets there have been lots of requests how that works. I have around 20 cryptos, using 6 exchanges and a few different wallets. recently i wrote a german explanation with practical example for an ICO (CryptoPing)... keep sharing knowledge =)

Tim! I got 2 Steem from you. What did I do right?!? And thank you.

·
71
  ·  9 days ago

A week or so ago I ran a 'bounty' post where I paid everyone who replied to my question with useful information. You participated, so you got 2 STEEM :)

·
·
50
  ·  9 days ago

Yep. I remember now. Thanks. Quite generous. I'm 3 weeks in but already gave away 10 SBD and 1 LTC. I've given away so much on my Instagram page. This platform is much more lending to generousity and charity. Thanks again!

Thank you. Right now I'm frustrated bevause Ive initiated BTC purchases through coinbase and glidera and date of arrival keeps getting pushed back.
Glidera kinda weirded me out so i canceled and requested account deletion (wrote a blog about this)
Coinbase purchase on 6/7 was to arrive 6/17 now pushed back 6/22. Frustrating. Why does it take so long

·
71
  ·  10 days ago

I don't know the answer. The last time I made a purchase (about a month ago) it worked fine. Maybe something else will have an answer.

One thing I found was that if you have a bank account and debit card linked, it lets you buy a certain amount (around $2,000 I think) instantly.

·
·
50
  ·  10 days ago

Well I didn't purchase anything near two grand...as I am new at this I made a very modest investment but it's still an amount I'd be pissed if I lost. ...and yes it is linked to my bank account. It is just discouraging that i can't purchase. Nothing has been pulled from my account but it makes me dubious. Everyone seems to think coinbase is good though so trying to be patient

·
·
·
71
  ·  10 days ago

I consider them a very reputable site, so I don't think that you have to worry too much. Probably the worst thing to expect is some delays. I think the biggest issue people have is they charge you the price of whatever the coins are worth at the time you click the buy button. By the time they arrive in your account they can be worth more or less than they were at the time you purchased them. Depending on the price of BTC between those times it can either work in your favor or against you. That is why I went through the steps to be able to buy some instantly - to remove the volitility risk. Plus I prefer to be able to use my coins right away :)

·
·
·
·
50
  ·  10 days ago

Ok that does make some sense as it has fluctuated by several hundred since the inititated transaction date. I just logged in and it's got a delay of 11 days. >_<
That far exceeds the "3 to 5 business days " for US Bank account. I wish i had known to just use my debit card to get it immediately. You live you learn I guess

·
·
·

Very nice information please tell me how much steem power we get for 1 steem coin?

·
71
  ·  10 days ago

You get 1 SP for each STEEM coin. Technically SP is STEEM - it is just "vested" in the platform, meaning that you are agreeing to keep it in the platform (until you decide to power it down) in exchange for more influence, higher curation rewards, and interest on your balance.

Its pretty straight-forward. Keep in mind Coinbase has fees (which will be shown to you at the time of transaction - purchase) - 1.5% when using bank account (keep in mind that the bitcoin will be available AFTER some days, not right away! When i bought some it took like 5 days to come to my wallet). Credit card / debit card purchase will be INSTANT, but it has its price - HIGHER fee of 3.99%.

Is it still worth investing in Steem do you think?

·
71
  ·  9 days ago

It is hard to know. In the long term I think there is a ton of upwards potential. I am still keeping the majority of my earnings in the site. In the short term though I have no idea what it will do.

Coinbase does not allow buying or selling bitcoins from my country. I think i have to look into localbitcoins or any other options.

Flag was nothing personal.

I just don't feel a basic How to Buy STEEM Guide deserves $756. There's a place for that, but Over 700 bucks is way too much.

Nothing personal.

How are the prices when buying steem trough blocktrades vs exchanges where you can place bids? Do you pay a big premium for ease of use?

·

Yes. It is more expensive than some of the other exchanges, which is a trade off for convenience and not having to have your coins sit on an exchange.
