It will never be easier to earn Steem.

in steem •  6 months ago

While you all fight about the trending page you are missing the idea that SteemIt is not the future it is the Firehose.

The Steem Blockchain and Steem the currency are the future

The Future Is Coming:

  • New platforms are coming.
  • SMTs are coming
  • Communities are coming.
  • Investors are coming
  • New Users are coming

There will be Memes and Porn and maybe a content site or two,  SteemPress dLive, dMania, dTube, dSound, Utopian, steemnews.online, Zappl

Are you paying attention?  

Rewarding Bloggers and Content Creators is a difficult thing, it has been tried in Mainstream many times.  We will continue to try it, but as we have found out it isn't easy to have a decentralized community that also attracts Mainstream.  They can't handle the language, they don't like memes or Conspiracy, or Liberals, or Flags or they don't like YOU.  (ha, kidding)  They want Ned to come and fix everything.  They don't like investors or voting bots or whatever it is that they don't like.  Most people only want Freedom to the extent that it benefits them.  Most of us also have very little experience working in a decentralized environment.  

We can have both!  We will have both.  

If you don't like how SteemIt is, or the trending page or whatever, that is fine make a post.  After you are done posting look around at the new platforms and those that are coming.  Find a "Content" community, or an Art community, or a Singing Community. a Gift Economy and work with those people to develop your own vision of what you thought SteemIt would/should/could be.

If you are still trying to Tweak SteemIt, you are not seeing what is developing!

Tomorrow earning Steem will be even harder than it is today.

If you build it, they will come...

Tomorrow it will be harder than today . This is the perfect ground for investors to come in and reward the early vissionaries . Perfect strom will be the combination of hive and bot ( one will police another ). Thanks for the post

·

absolutely not, as long as the delegate income structure and sharing isn't rethink it will be difficult...

·
·

it will be tougher as more people will compete for the reward . Isnt it?

·
·
·

why steem should have a monopoly? it ain't facebook, there is competition brewing... and one system maybe better :).

remember how people were monomaniachal with facebook... don't be like them with steemit :)

·
·
·
·

We are not . I see steem community humble and doers . Competition is good for general market . The best will win . Some of the rest will survive and rest give up - this is just how every tech marketplace works. Then again i will personally hope and believe in steem . First mover advantage with efficient team is remarkable.

Hi, thanks for your comment. What are (is) the best alternative to steem?

I agree! Steem Power is cheap and there won’t be this easy to earn in the future! Thanks for the share! Resteem

·

All in on that Steem Power, brother!

·
·

I did this mistake and lost the opportunity to buy 3x more pivx.

No mention of SteemPress in the list of Apps allowing new users to use the blockchain their way? 😱

I totally agree with the message!

·

fixed. Good reminder.

·
·

Thanks! I don't expect everyone to be mentioning us with the other well-known apps just yet, but nice to get it on people's awareness gradually^^

It's unfortunate that many people come on steemit and fail to see that there is so much more being built and then judge the value and potential of the token by what they see on trending. Would be nice if Dapps were easily found somewhere, like there being a menu on steemit.com that let people browse for verified apps.

·
·
·

I have trouble keeping up with all of the steem apps. It's hard enough trying to keep up with and understand steemit. lol

·
·
·

Yes, I'm thinking a Steem Blockchain landing page where you log in, general info and help, see general and specific wallet information, SMTs that you hold and drop downs or links to each of the applications! :)

I guess I should start sketching it up.

·
·
·
·

It would be cool if steemconnect did something like that.

·
·
·
·

The Blogger interface is actually a pretty good template for that; there are a bunch of optional widgets containing different apps that you can drag into your basic bare-bones blog page. You can add a jillion things or no things, depending on what your objective is.

The particular aspect of this community that will remain a major block for a "mainstream" user is precisely that the apps are all over the place. I don't want to have 17 separate accounts, I want to have everything in one place. It doesn't have to be "centralized," logistically speaking, I just want a "wrapper" that makes it LOOK centralized.

·

oh cool what do you like about SteemPress? never heard of it before reading this post.

Most people only want Freedom to the extent that it benefits them.

This is all too true.

The firehouse is messy but at least I get it. I will probably be dragged into “the future” kicking and screaming. 😅

·

Ha, you will get washed into the future in the tide. A rising tide lifts all boats.

You always have the most positive outlook on things and that's why I enjoy your posts. In all this negativity, you are the positivity some people need.

Find a "Content" community, or an Art community, or a Singing Community. a Gift Economy and work with those people to develop your own vision of what you thought Steem it would/should/could be.

Is this your way of telling people to network and find their "niche?"

·

That is exactly what I am trying to say. Figure out who you are and what you want to be and find your "Friends" and make it happen!

·
·

I'm doing both thank you very much!

Hi whatsup,

I find it harder to get others to even take a look at my blogs compared to when I started Aug 2016....
Too many good contents and not enough Steemians seeking good contents?

·

I think in a few weeks when Steemit hits 1 million users we will see Steemit in the Main Stream Media, and everyone who has not been active on Steemit will come back and start being active again.. You have over 1500+ followers so I think if you stay consistent you will start noticing a change soon! 🤘😄

·
·

Thank you for encourgement ....I just want to keep on blogging everyday and besides, this is fun compared to working for someone else....Steemit is my long term goal.

It is cheap to buy now! Steem will to the moon when SMT launch!

I'm sorry about walking around and being negative. I didn't look into those new changes communities/SMT etc and I don't know how they will effect us.
I really don't care about trending page since I never check it even if I do I don't expect to see something worthy.
There are solutions to everything, if we annoyed by memes. I gathered an idea from some other project that posts contents under a main post like a comment this way people can share memes without destroying their feed or annoying their followers.
I've been thinking about a design community (actually a dribbble clone-ish something) and my goal is to make that place invitation-only and count only application's users vote to display worthy content on its trending page or wherever they need to be displayed (..obviously it won't attract any current investor). It's about ethics, I'm actually a designer so I'm a noob developer thanks to steemit and I can see those things can happen, these guys literally knows to talk with computers with 0 and 1s but they choose to be greedy without noticing the potential of steemit. I've seen that you are worried about loosing investors but if they earn 1 by investing 1 with bid-botes, and after we get rid of those bots and inequal situations we may attract more people so their 1 investment could worth more than 1. I still didn't invite any of my friend or family member into this mess. Because I know it's not about share something and get rewarded. Yeah my english fails me again. So I'm just gonna end it here, hope it's not going to give headache to whoever try to understand what I've just wrote :)

it's sad for most of us who had no idea about the existence of Steem blockchain when a single introduction post would yield $30,000

·

That only happened a couple of times. Also, back then we had 104 week power down, so nearly none of those people actually earned and kept that amount. :)

Porn you say? ah well, I'mm too old. I just come here, write my little bloggies, and hope someone has the good sense to read,comment and hopefully give me an upvote now and then. As too all the hullallaboo about the trending posts and the bots... couldn't give two shits about them.

·

lol, well I am not into Porn either, but it is coming. There are a couple of porn platforms in the works.

There will come a day when there will be people on the Steem blockchain who will have never heard of Steemit.com!

That will be interesting. :-D

You forgot to mention GAMES. There are actual games that you can play and earn Steem while playing! There are 3 that I know of that have been around for a while already! People are having FUN while earning steem.

·

which ones?

·
·

Zombie Adventure game by @happyme, a game inspired by the zombie game but modeled after Warhammer 40k by @daclawboyz and the steempunk game which is really not a game but a way to inspire people to interact with each other's blogs and is having technical difficulties with maintaining a connection to the required servers.

Thanks for the reminder that we are still barely on the early stages and what really matters is coming ahead of us :-D

I expect a huge influx of users and activity when hiveminds launch and I'm also looking forward SMTs and the future of the platform as a whole

thank you, I can not wait until Grumpy Cat and Bernie Sanders are done fighting so we can get back to being a nice peaceful community.

·

It never happens. When one fight stops the void is filled by the next fight.

·
·

ugh, boys!

I have been waiting for communities for so lon . I think when they launch this will take off.

Very good points!

We heard of so many projects last summer that were supposed to "compete" with Steemit, but where are they?

Steemit & STEEM are reaching mainstream levels, and with everything happening with Facebook.. We may very well be the next big thing!

With dlive, dtube, dsound, zappl, steepshot, and all of the others.. We may be taking the same path already!

Here is a chart from Yahoo Finance of Facebook's number of users leading up to 1 Billion users.

1 million — End of 2004.
5.5 million — End of 2005.
12 million — End of 2006.
20 million — April 2007.
50 million — October 2007.
100 million — August 2008.
250 million — July 2009.
500 million — July 2010.
750 million — July 2011.
1.01 billion — September 2012.

but I am afraid of a change going forward .... do they intentionally want to destroy Steemit or will they make more apps just for useless junk lovers ....? So we are bloggers who are paying attention ...?

·

So anything you don't like is Useless Junk? Come on it is the Internet. There is room for us all. Find a niche.

·
·

Okay buddy ... I'll try to get a niche

Lots of promises of a grand future. What is the old saying - castles of rock can't be built on foundations of sand

·

Oh, is it trite saying time? Keep doing what you are doing and you will keep getting what you are getting.

·
·

Flip that around and ask STINC leadership to look in the mirror. Lots of comments and suggestions on improvements for steemit.com; but no interest in putting in time or effort

I wish there was something to better explain the reputation system. I got up a few points then missed a few weeks and then i got knocked down below where i started with no power in my votes.

·

Rep goes up with incoming votes and goes down with flags. So when you get upvotes your rep goes up and when you get flagged it goes down.

·
·

great and i assume upvotes from a better rep steemian only matters otherwise anyone can use bots for upvotes and achieve higher rep.

·
·
·

That is correct. The higher the rep of the upvoters, the more it affects your rise in reputation. I would note though, that some bid bots have moderate reputations. So gaming the system is still possible.

·
·
·
·

Thanks for that. Am i right that if you are inactive it goes back down?

·
·
·
·
·

No. It remains constant in your absence.

I agree to that 10000%. There will definitely be new users which is very exciting. Those who don't like crypto are not those "new users" so they're less priority to this "new innovation"

Exactly @whatsup, I agreed with your worthy words. you describe the whole scenario beautifully. Off course it is too much difficult in future to earn Steem as compare to now a days. Thanks for updating, I appreciate and support your impressive words.

Interesting perspective. My main question would be whether the greater general public (mainstream) is ready for a social experience that requires running a dozen separate apps when they are used to 'everything being in one place' on Facebook?

it will not be easy but it will be more fun than ever :)

Just on chistmas Time, nobody was being with real money SP Power. Because of the High Price that time. Now, the time changed again and people invest they real money again into Steemit. It is a up and down always.

We all, we all Steemians are in the same position like a Boss in a company, who feel the direkt Up and down of the Company. We are all the Bosses together. there is no one who will tell us anything. Here, everyone is his one Boss

Big YES to this post.. well i'm new to steemit too and finding difficulty to earn steem.
Resteemed it....

Great post. I am pretty happy to be here. I am pretty new, but I am liking it already. Great place to showcase my work. I really hope to see all this stuff really take off. Anyway, kudos.

I agree. I think this is the best time to stack on STEEM and Steem Power. With more and more newcomers to the platform it will be harder and harder to get a piece of the reward pool.

Keep on posting and keep on stackin' people.

This post has received a 33.33 % upvote from @booster thanks to: @whatsup.

Totally agree with you. Everyone should use Steem as they see fit, I do and im having a great while in doing it.
And I dont think its very hard to get some profit because I did and I am a total social media noob, only used Facebook for the chat and started cryptocurency because of Steem, so a total crypto-noob to.
If I can make some money with Steem, everyone should be able to!!
Have a nice day!!

the problem is the delegate model.

Time is wasted on fights while the world keeps spinning. So much could be done with the amount of passion high profile steemers invest in heated arguments and downvotes. Steemit is a gift but people complain whose blog is the shittiest. I agree, scammers and bad influences have to be isolated but seeing some drama going around reminds me of my nieces fighting over whose soup bole is more full.

I wrote a blog the other day what I think Steem blockchain should accomplish this year before it's forgotten and outshined by the ones in power at the moment:

Happy Steeming

Woah, dude, I'm glad you already see Steemit so big. I thought it would be a cool idea to let people to IMAGINE what if Steemit would be so big as FACEBOOK. First, create a vision and everything else will follow. ;-)

Its very hard to earn steem now, December was really good time

I do believe today steem is an open platform with allot of potential and possibility.
What does steemit look like five years from now. I think what you see woth these wide open platforms with allot if profit on the table is a day when rules come in to by ownership to limit and curb certain behavior. Not to say there is anything inappropriate going on but whos to say that there isnt?
We might see limitations on how much you can post based o how much steem power you have. I agree with the author, we might be seeing the golden years of steemit. I think this is a time for members build to build there accounts.for this social media platform based on blockchain. Steemit will be a giant. I would just like to have half of one percent of what steemit would be worth.

Everything in Life, at one or more levels, will all be in an Artificial Intelligence infused environment, all the while prepping & staging to leave the planet retroactive! And a steemit with a broader Dashboard options, Bigger Exchange, Debit Card, Amazon, ebay, & all the rest to, a Life/Business/Entertainment/Communications/HQ infusion

Things evolve slowly and take time to get fully matured.

Takes a while to get the hang of things but I agree Steemit has a bright future.

You are so right! I just wish we had some dates on these!

Have you seen the bSteem app just released?

https://steemit.com/bsteem/@sequentialvibe/bsteem-for-android-and-ios-the-best-mobile-steem-app

I am every much into adding my "Time Machine Builders" Program Platforms of Artificial Intelligence Ideas. All of my blogs parallel to what your saying, I sure hope we can merge ideas on steem & steemit ventures! It also sound like steemit could hire more people! A LOT More People!!

Yeah, i am definitely sticking around for Steem Porn lol But seriously this is a wonderful contribution to the Steemit community. Thank you.

yes boss @whatsup. i am agreed with you its challenging for future . as like as the present situation it hints the same you described about future of earning from this platform. thanks for sharing

Absolutely Whoever have issues with the working can definitely move to alternate platforms however what have me thinking is the growth plan here. My current aim is to bring more and more people to join steemit this would also strong my position and the currency and even thoe i succeed in getting them I'm facing issues with keeping them motivated.

With prices nose diving to lowest most don't think its worth spending time writing a post here. for that matter even i reduced the number of posts since I don't have a godfather here who'll give me a basic minimum payout. Even after being here for a decent amount of time most of my posts trend at .10$ that too if m lucky.

·

Well, sounds like the platform will have less spam.

wow very excellent post
