The Top 99 Most Followed Steemit Accounts in 2018 [UPDATED]
UNBELIEVABLE growth in the Steemit community over the past 6 months. Below you can see the top 99 Steemit accounts recorded by me on the 29th of January. If you compare it with the post created by @lukestokes just 6 months ago, it is unreal. See the table below.
I used Steemwhales to compile the data. The only problem? Steemwhales is not completely up-to-date with the accounts, so the rank was not accurate. I went through the first 300 most followed accounts and made sure that I got the top 100 correct. Anyone knows why Steemwhales is not up-to-date with its data?
- Today while doing this epic compilation I realised that there are literally tonnes of functions and tools on Steemit that help users sort through data, monetize their votes, delegate their Steem Power and much more. I feel like a Steemit toddler who is just discovering all the awesome possibilities of this platform.
- People with large followings don't necessary create great content. A few accounts I saw as I was going through each and every account was that there were a few that were simply re-steeming things for money. While I don't have a problem with that, I don't feel that is genuine following base, as you are not necessarily providing quality to your viewers, rather just resteeming whatever comes your way and you are paid for.
- You don't a long time to gain substantial amount of following. What is needed is good, informative, fun content as well as community engagement.
I want to acknowledge here that I used a similar style and layout as @lukestokes, as his post inspired me to delve into the most followed steemit accounts in the beginning of 2018. Wonder what 2019 will look like?
Please re-steem and upvote if you liked this content and let me know in the comments below what your vision is for your Steemit account in 2018?
