Hey amazing people, I don't know where to begin to be honest with you. Already I have made over $7,000 from my introduction post and feel at a loss for words. Just know I am extremely honored and humbled by your upvotes and support.

Because of this I want to give back and tell everyone I know about this amazing blockchain based, uncensored and user based platform. I run https://www.youtube.com/user/wearechange and want to make the best informative video about steemit, how it works and its game changing potential.

Let me know in the comment section below of this post any of the following

  1. what kind of video you would like to see
  2. what facts about steemit should people know about
  3. what tutorials you would like to see so people know how to use this platform
  4. or whatever you want me to do.


My Camera is locked and loaded, LET'S DO THIS

Much love and respect,
Luke

I really think you would gain a deep understanding of Steemit by reading Dan Larimer's blog. This is the central reason Steemit was created, out of a need to create non-violent solutions to the world's most pressing problems. This is Dan's quote which is very powerful, and is the backbone of Steemit actually:

"Violence is a shortcut that is taken when people get frustrated and lack innovative alternatives. People don’t choose violence because they want the violent solution, they choose it because they don’t see any other way."

If you could take a moment and read the blog post from which that came, I'd really like that. Here it is:
https://bytemaster.github.io/update/2015/12/29/Why-Vision-Matters/

And I would add, to create a financial incentive for people to use logic, reason and creativity to carve out solutions that make our world better. Abusive people earn zero dollars in Steemit. The smart people soon realize that their income is proportionate to their community efforts. And for some, that community effort can be in the form of humor, data, analysis, monitoring abuse (spam, trolls, stalking), programming, art, services, basically anything that the community deems valuable. You are valuable to us because you have an existing, engaged following who respects you. We give you that respect back in the form of upvotes, financial rewards.

You will also find many of your basic questions answered in Steemit Help: http://www.steemithelp.com/index.php?/selfhelp/categories

I would highly recommend reading through the whitepaper (if you haven't already done so) here: https://steem.io/SteemWhitePaper.pdf

Personally I would like to see these nuggets in your video:

  1. As mentioned by others, the big one is that Steemit pays for content/comments/votes with Steem Dollars and Steem Power. People, like yourself, have and continue to make thousands of dollars for a single post.

  2. Steem Dollars are pegged to the USD and are one of, if not the most, price-stable crypto currencies available. Holding SD earns you about 10% interest. So it's like a liquid CD/GIC that pays 10%. This is huge.

  3. Steem Power compounds in realtime and 90% of all new STEEM is distributed to SP accounts. At the current level of STEEM distribution SP accounts will more than double in 12 months. SP can be withdrawn at a maximum rate of 1% per week.

  4. All of your accounts are contained in your profile. You can see all of your balances any time you log in. Transferring SD takes seconds and only requires the username of the receiving party. No government can seize your account, block your transfers or take your money away. If your account gets hacked you can recover it.

  5. Dan and Ned are awesome and should be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Seriously.

Good answer. I will say, however, that it is actually closer to .94% each week for 104 weeks (2 years)

The builder burgers suggested taxing the Internet. What would that mean? It is a benefit ..... Then crypto will be taxed(?) https://steemit.com/steemit/@marco555/steemit-is-a-facebook-killer-a-brief-tallk-on-the-start-of-something-new

Don't mention anything about Bitcoin or crypto. Join, Earn and Learn.

You've made a good point. We want a larger audience beyond the crypto community. The technical ins and outs of the system are not important and would just confuse the wider audience.

Some encouraging could be helpful, it can be frustrating and discouraging to post stuff and invest time doing things with nothing in return. Seen your videos. Respect !

Thank you for taking on this task. Most of the information online on how Steem works is way to technical for me.

·

I know im trying to dumb it down so the average person understands it with no technical background, its a bigger project than I thought but I will get it done soon.

Tell youtube about the Curation mechanic!
i mean in youtube everyone is about "first" under pretty much any videos you even get rewarded for these thing here on steem :)!

At first glance I thought you were carrying some kind of hitech gun or something... a closer look and it is a video camera... lol... cheers to journalism... interesting videos in your youtube channel.. just subscribed it... thanks...
just like @hermes7 said clear my doubt relating to Curation....

figuring out how curation works 1st , I will do my best on this, thanks so much for the sub means a lot to us.

Luke - I've seen your stuff many times...

Did you think hope was lost?
Have all the doors you could run through to escape and fight been closed?

You are wrong... there is a new place... a new thing... a new place of freedom

A place where you can't be censored.

A place where you can be you and if people like what you have to say and offer you will make money.

A money not controlled by any central bank.

The idea is so huge and so new there is more to know... check out steemit.com.

Do you remember the land rush? Do you remember the people in history heading to America to escape to "Freedom". There is a new place like that.


Luke - there are some things to familiarize yourself with about steemit.com. If you haven't I recommend reading the white paper. It kind of helps explain this new paradigm.

Some things people should know...

the three types of currency...

they need to know this is a community so if you don't get a big pay day it is still a community and you are doing the same thing here you'd be doing anyway at reddit or facebook. The difference is you MIGHT get some decent pay.

You will get something just for using it, but you need not be jealous of people making money.

I tried to fight some of this confusion and such I saw people lashing out as it is a new paradigm. Feel free to take any of my ideas I tried to express and co-op them however you need. These posts I made simply to try to clear up confusion and steer people away from of the roads to cognitive dissonance.

Others have written similar... I am not trying to plug my work. These are old. I just really want to see this place succeed and will help however I can and your VOICE will reach far more people than mine.

How to move your FB friends over to Steemit?

63
  ·  6 months ago

You can share those 27 things with your audience - https://steemit.com/steemit/@dmitriybtc/27-reasons-to-join-steemit. I outlined pretty much any reason why they should join Steemit. A lot of people just don't realize how powerful it can be. There will be a time when it's too late, like it was with Bitcoin for most of the people.

·
71
  ·  6 months ago

It will never be too late because you don't actually have to spend money to use this like you do bitcoin. It will be too late to be considered an early adopter though. On that we agree. :)

Go for aspirational type. Stay away from technical (crypto geeks are bias on that point). Can't wait to see it! :-)

Luke, please bring Mark Dice over here, I've contacted him but he didn't respond, perhaps he'll listen to you. I have followed both of you since the beginning :)

he's not really into crypto currencies but i will talk to him about it

I would love to see a discussion between you and Adam Kokesh! Also I really enjoyed the rainbow gathering quick bit you had on youtube, maybe you have more to say about that?

Hey Luke how about you ask for our photos to use in your video to show the faces of those you are in Steemit? Congratulations on your success with your first post. You've been working your a** off for years telling the Truth and now my friend it's to pay you back in a big way.... Keep on Steemin my friend...

Tutorials on curation rewards would be great. I think the idea that the average user can make cash simply by curating and commenting is a cornerstone for the future of the social media platform.

·

Until steem power you've managed to add
The curator rewards you get are quite sad
Stick with it and keep at your post
Eventually you feel no longer a ghost

Your comment made at perfect time,
Perhaps with luck, you shall find
The whale's like what you did say,
And with their Steem, they shall pay.

Your comment made at perfect time
Thank you for the answer also in rhyme
Perhaps with luck, you shall find
That others will do unto you also in kind
The whale's like what you did say
And to you also on this day
And with their steem, they shall pay
and for others we shall pave the way

Luke, here is an extensive list of all the Steemit tools: http://steemtools.com/

  ·  6 months ago

I would love for someone to create a video that quickly explains the steemit basics then also showing footage of highlights of the last couple months on steemit so people realize this social platform is real, and its not going to go anywhere or create fake/illegal money for you. Narration included.

That's the question I get asked most of the time when explaining Steemit to someone new. "yeah but can you actually use the money you receive? what does the law say about that..."

A simplified version of steemit with some highlights and ending with something like "what are you waiting for, a new world is waiting for you" or something in a similar manner to feel people comfortable and excited to join.

Thanks for this btw! Made sure to give you a follow and support your account and channel in the future.

for your community its important to know nothing can get censored here because the posts are stored in the blockchain.

Luke.......... your the man. A screen shot video of getting around the site and what all the bells and whistles mean would be GREAT

Hey luke. We have bee working with dan larimer for a long time and i would like to help you answer any questions you might have. Also would you like me to see about getting dan and ned in on this video?

43
  ·  6 months ago

Keep up the amazing work Luke. Been following you for 8 years!
I'm kind of taken aback by this site myself. I don't even know how you hyperlinked a picture to this. haha
All I can say is, help explain what the site is all about and how we as independent media can benefit from it! Thank you, hope to talk with you soon!

53

Luke would be great if you could do an interview with the developers @dan & @ned focusing on freedom of speech, censorship resistance.
there's been some censorship issues on Steemit . people with a lot of SteemPower (often referred as whales) were able with just a flag downvote to censor a post (on the Steemit site, not on the blockchain) and often for petty reasons.
I think this is being currently addressed by the devs (with the fine-tuning of the reputation system) and also by the community organizing itself to counter arbitrary censoring downvotes, but I'd like to hear more on this subject and what measures the devs have in mind to protect freedom of speech on Steemit.

FYI, I run Really American and I have over 50,000 email subscribers who are mostly ravid Bernie Sanders fans. Would love to find a way to collaborate with what you are doing on http://wearechange.org/

I would be interested in learning the following:

1.What is Steemit likely to look like a year from now. Or 2 years from now. Will it be the same? Are there other features that we can expect to see along the way? What might those features be?

2.What methods are available for bringing traffic to our posts? While there are those who have followers from other platforms, some of us will have to start almost from scratch. It would be nice to know how to supercharge our momentum for maximum impact.

3.It would be interesting to know the typical timeframe from when someone starts a blog to the point of really getting a sizable following.

That's all I'm looking for right now that I can think of.

I really do appreciate you doing this Luke. I sense that you are excited about the possibilities of Steemit, and I like how you're directing that excitement back into the platform and, quite frankly, how you're investing in those of us who are following you. Thank you!

i'd start with the reasons that made you sign up on steemit and then focus on what's in for your subscribers should they decide to move from other social media platforms to steemit.

don't get into the tech stuff too much and stick to the advantages over fb, etc...

Go Luke.
Complete faith in what you do with this.
You are reaping your good karma from your years of dedication and commitment.

Explain how to cash out. If someone writes something useful, or entertaining, they might be a starving artist type. Tell them how they can get their cash.

Here's a good question. I created my steemit account by logging on to facebook. Now, I do not have a steemit password by which to log on to steemit throug my mobile device or other means. Also, I fear that if any one else in our home makes a steemit account on this computer, I'll never be able to access my steemit account again. How do I find out my steemit account password so I can record it for future uses?
