Have you ever wondered what happens when you promote some content (Either yours or others).

I did when I promoted by first blog post

You can find the answer From the FAQ page

"Steem Dollars spent to promote a post are paid to the account @null, which nobody owns or controls. Once a user transfers SBD to @null, the Steem blockchain removes them from the currency supply."

I am trying to see if we can get a handle on what is the total amount spent in promotions on steemit till now. I am unable to find as steemit doesn't have a blockexplorer like other currencies. It would be great to see what this number is as it is a cursor to the confidence people have in the platform.

Though he wont't know anything about it you can still follow null at

Thanks for the link. So from the graph number of people promoting their posts is going up again(second cycle). Do you know if there is a way to find out the total amount transferred to this account till now?


Before I was not interested, but if you can see the whole chain, then you can find a way to calculate anything ..!

No entiendo! me explican, yo también tengo una transferencia a esta cuenta. Porque?
