The only way to get wealth on Steemit is to post a ton of high-quality content that is exclusive to the platform.
Sure, you can come up with some scheme like so many others to rape reward pool, but it won’t be long until Steemit’s self-appointed police find you and downvote your efforts with their community army of do-gooders. Downvotes counter any reward you may have earned and also affect your reputation score on the platform.
It’s like figuratively dragging you into the town square and putting you in stocks. It’s medieval, sure, but necessary.
On the other hand, if you go into it with the attitude of contributing, helping others, and being a true member of the community, wealth will come naturally. Keep in mind that “getting rich on Steemit” is the exception rather than the rule, and most of the wealthy members are founding members and early adopters.
