Wondering where that new user adoption is coming from?
While I mistyped an account name to find a steemer from the slack to follow, I landed on an account that had recently been created, and had only transferred money to another account, never posted. I thought that was odd, and clicked to see who the transfer was to... and discovered this: this account has never posted, yet a quick scroll reveals they have been getting hundreds of $$ from rewards for creating new accounts, transferring the reward to a central account, and then selling the STEEM.
As long as someone can crate an email address, they can get a new Facebook account, and from there, create a steemit account and get $10 in STEEM.
They have literally made THOUSANDS!
Why did they stop 7 days ago? Anyone know? Perhaps they got bored with the work?
