Steemit.com gets a mention by Derin Cag!

2 months ago

The other day, Derin Cag was quoted mentioning Steemit.com as a way for users to earn "their fair share" on social media.

Specifically the quote was read as following:

"Although the mainstream social media platforms make billions each year from advertising revenues, they do not reward their users financially. Blockchain technology is transforming this by paying people their fair-share to post things, such as in the case of Steem.it. The next frontier in terms of Blockchain technology developments in mass communications will most likely be in decentralization."

Awesome! But, did you notice the typo? 

I wish I could tell you that was my mistake with the typo of Steemit.com, but unfortunately that is exactly how it appeared in the Cointelegraph article.

Ugh! Facepalm!

Hopefully it was their typo and not wherever they pulled it from...

The entire article can be seen here:

Who is Derin Cag you might be wondering?

His full profiles can be seen here:

https://twitter.com/DerinCag

And here:

https://uk.linkedin.com/in/derincag

Basically...

He is the Founder and CEO at Richtopia. He is a huge proponent of blockchain technology and a decent sized influencer.

It's a bummer that they couldn't spell our name right, but any time someone is mentioning us in the media and thinking of us as the go to site for decentralized social media, it is a good thing.

Stay informed my friends!

Any publicity is good publicity :)

right on!:) always happy when steemit gets more exposure :)

Steemit is fast becoming popular and even influential people like Derin Cag are starting to recognize it as a valuable platform in the currency space.

@jrcornel - It is nice to see that influential personalities in blockchain world are taking notice of Steemit and making positive comments. I have seen Derin Cag;s opinion being respected not only in crypto world but also in normal financial world since Richtopia also features articles on Finance, arts and commodities too.
Thank you for this update. I am very happy to see Steemit becoming popular. I see Steemit as a survival tool for uplifting many lives in Africa as I mentioned in my latest blog based on Steemit SQL statistics. I hope more an more leading personalities in various fields become aware of Steemit and help us promote it. Thanks. Upvoted

maybe we should buy and redirect steem.it to steemit.com

That is hilarious, good idea!

It's great that people besides Steemit are supporting our community. Thanks to these people Steemit will be huge soon :) Thanks for your post :) Upvoted!

I need your opinion about my new project based on Blockchain. Can you tell me what do you think? https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@websensei/we-need-your-help-new-blockchain-based-project-rewards-are-waiting

I will be really grateful :)

Soon enough steem will be known by everyone. Crypto itself is still a baby and is slowing maturing. Wait for the future when everything becomes a reality with crypto

good info @jrcornel nice work :)

Good to read this !!!

Scaling the Blockchain

In the meantime, we have been working on some fundamental changes to help scale Steem.We currently run 7 steemd nodes in AWS to support steemit.com and will need to continue to run more and more to support our growth.The key problem is that Steemd is single threaded, however, we are well along in the process of making it multithreaded.

Imagine the steemd server program is a stove.Right now, it has a single burner and we need to make a meal.A few of the dishes are the peer to peer network, accepting and evaluating blocks, and responding to API requests for data clients like steemit.com.We are rapidly switching pots, pans, and skillets onto the single burner to make each component of the meal.The increased request volume from steemit.com is delaying the meal.

Thus far, we have been buying extra single burner stoves to distribute the load because this was how blockchains were originally designed.But this is not ideal because all of our stoves (our computers) actually have 8 burners (CPU cores) and we are only using 1 each.We have been making changes to the steemd server program so that we can use all 8 burners and not need as many stoves.That way we can put a skillet on one burner, a pot on another, pan on another, you get the idea.

I read this somewhere... :)

That was great publicity even though the typo was there. If anyone who is interested types that into google am sure he/she will find our lovely site :) So its all good

Good, I'm very helpful with this information, hopefully your day is fun.

I am so happy to finally find a social network that supports me and helps me to support others - it's a great feeling of balance.As you can see from my post summary for the last week (below), I haven't been hanging around- I've made lots of posts on important subjects, in fact this week the subjects are some of the most important on Earth thatmany still don't understand.. Plus, I created 2 new add-ons for Steemit - A full visual Rethemeand a way of making downvotes more visible.

Steem.it isn't that an Italian website? Ha ha! Thanks for the info.

It's nice to read great work.

Very much glad to hear the more steemit gets exposure the better!

·

Agreed!

This type of post gives me the best feeling in the world ! i can't wait to see us (steemiters) future !

Cointelegraph is extremely bad at editing. I wrote an article for them last year about Steem Fest and they "edited" it to where it didn't actually make sense. It is like they have Non-English speaking people doing the editing. It doesn't surprise me they missed the typo.
