Steemit Revolution: Come for the Money, Stay for the Friends!

in #steemit4 years ago (edited)

Steemit and more importantly the steem blockchain seem to fly under the radio in the crypto universe and even more so in general society. I mean think about it, when is the last time you asked an everyday Joe if they have heard of steem and they said yes?

The Unknown Beast That Lurks Beneath

Steem really is an unknown beast. It has...

  • Fee less transactions
  • 3 second transaction processing

How many other blockchains can claim that? The answer is not many!

I've been on the steemit platform and invested in steem since July 2016. Over two years now and I will be honest. I'm surprised the adoption of this blockchain has not caught on like wildfire.

Usage has grown aggressively though and I think that will only amplify as project such as Smart Media Tokens (SMTs) launch in the very near future.

What is cool about SMTs is it will give people the ability to create their own tokens without having to fork the Steem blockchain. This reduces the technological barrier to entry greatly, because I can tell you I won't be forking a chain any time soon but an SMT is something I could pull off. Hmmm...maybe we need scaredycat coin?

Viable Usage

In the end we will need cryptos we can transact with. Bitcoin is not the answer, it is and always will be to slow and bulky. This is why I believe it will become the equivalent to digital gold.

However, with the transaction times and the fee less nature of steem it is setup as a perfect candidate to be a transactional currency.

Join the Revolution

The easiest way to get involved in the steem blockchain is by participating on steemit. You essentially "mine" coins by posting and curating others' content on the platform.

Plus you make a ton of great new friends. I tell you this from experience. I have friends around the world I would not have known otherwise and have even started projects and businesses with some of them.

This is why I like to sing...

  • Steemit revolution about to begin, come for the money, stay for the friends!

You can hear a really bad rap song about it here:

Steemit having bright future
Nice informative post

You have a minor misspelling in the following sentence:

I'm suprised the adoption of this blockchain has not caught on like wildfire.
It should be surprised instead of suprised.

Yessss! Nice catch grammarnazi.

By 2019, the steem voice will be heard in the crypto space. I don’t even see any social media blockchain even comes to close to steem!

You know how it goes man....slow burn until it boils over and goes viral. Matter of time.

I totally agree with everything he says, I do not understand why people continue to doubt this platform, if it is already a reality, I know very well that in the next few years this will be crazy and the value of the steem will be through the roof and is where many people can regret not having trusted us

Top sound !!!
Steemit is Revolucion !!!!


Haha...dude that’s great. Loving the Steemit Revolution rap, "...come for the money, say for the friends.” Thanks for the laugh....I look forward to a follow up!

Haha, I did that 8 months ago and played in on my Music and Money show on MSPWaves Radio. I think it's a one and should be ;-)

Well, I'd respectfully disagree. I'd love an encore...haha. My better half and I laughed about that for about 10 mins straight. Anyway...well done. You've got a great show too by the way. Really enjoy your casual interview format. Keep up the great work.

Much appreciated! Got a fresh new interview for ya today 4pm EDT!

Great...I'll check it out
