Quora is a website where you can ask questions and get answers. It is a great way to do some promotion for Steem and bring new users to Steemit.
This April, I selected 3 questions about Steem on Quora, which I'd like to share the short answer in this post with you.
My Three Answers About Steem on Quora This Month!
I always look at questions about Steem first when I want to answer questions on Quora, then cryptocurrency, and finally other Internet marketing questions that I'd love to answer.
It seems that answering questions about Steem has paid off as I'm a "Most Viewed Writer" in Steemit.
I selected three questions this month that had none to 3 answers.
1) How do I become a steem witness and mine? Can anyone still mine steem power?
My answer to this question was that being a Steem witness is quite different from mining other cryptocurrencies. You not only need to set up your own server, but also get votes from the Steem community, which is not an easy task.
If you don't know where to see who are the top 100 witnesses, go to this website: Witnesses | Steem Blockchain | Steem
In my answer I also gave links to resources if you want to become a Steem Witness.
The “Steem Witness Training” section in Steem.Guide is the place to get started.
If you would like to make a witness vote I recommend @jerrybanfield as explained at the end of this post.

2) How does Steemit.com work? If it's blockchain-based, how is it that I can use it through a web browser? What is acting as the proxy for the blockchain appends?
This is a question I enjoyed answering because it forced me to look for ways to explain in a simple manner that anyone can understand.
I explained that a lot of websites pull information into their pages from a database and that Steemit and other Steem websites pull the data from the blockchain.
I like to visualize the Steem blockchain on SteemD.
If you click on the block ID, you can see how each transaction looks like on the Steem blockchain.

3) Has anyone used Steemit? If so, what are your thoughts?
When you see Steemit for the first time it can be difficult to understand all what it is about and if it is something that is worth pursuing.
In my answer, I explained my one year experience on Steemit, what I like and what I don't like.
Two things I like about Steemit:
- It’s a power blog and anything you post on Steemit will rank higher than your own WordPress blog.
- Earning Steem Power and SBD blogging.
The things I don’t like about Steemit:
- Low quality posts and plagiarism.
- Censure of content by its own users.
