I need Steemit related help - I'm confused

in steemit •  2 months ago 

I'm confused about revenue.

Steemword says that my all time total $ is just over $101 ish

It also says that the 'finished' posts total just over $52 ish

I go to my wallet and it says that my Steem is appx $22.

--- I understand that my earnings are divided 50/50 into Steem dollars and steem or Steem Power. Got that.

But, 50% of what? Is that where I'm getting the twenty something amount? Being half of the $55 ish dollars? So, if I were to choose to cash out, I could only cash out $22 (minus the service fees)?

Or, are the earnings 50% if the "forever earnings" of $101 ish? Which would provide an estimate of $55ish to pay out.

And, what is powering down and powering up?

---- I plan on sitting on the earnings for now with intent to treat it like stock but, I need to know what exactly is going on here.

Please help!! Thanks yous!
