The Tatiana Show with Ned Scott and Dan Larimer of Steemit, Brian Sovryn, Ryan Singer, and Joshua Scigala

in #steemit7 years ago (edited)

Josh and I were really excited to have on Ned Scott & Dan Larimer of Steemit with a skeptic Brian Sovryn, and Ryan Singer (a supporter but with an interesting background in business that I thought would be a good addition to the conversation).  The show was a spirited discussion about Steem, the upcoming curation guilds, Steem wealth distribution, and Identification/plagiarism among others.  I also made the announcement that I will be performing at Steemfest in Amsterdam (y'all better go!!  

Ned Scott is the co-founder and CEO of Steemit.  After studying economics and psychology at Bates, Steemit CEO Ned Scott worked in traditional private equity. Long interested in blockchain technology, after working on the BitShares project, Ned co-founded Steemit in 2016 to transform how people interact with social media.

@dan, did you go out late the night before? It's the first time i see you looking for the right words in an interview, normally you're talks are fluent and convincing

Good interview, enjoyed it very much, thank you @tatianamoroz

Steem (and Steemit) works because Dan always looks tired.

Thanks for watching Steve!

Give him a break, he just made the world a free'er place :)

I thought that steem power took 2 years to cash out now is a year?

an average of 1 year. Some you get in 1 week, some you get in 2 years.

Thanks :) did not know that......and i thought Craig Grant had all the answers lol

No problem, I was just sorry I couldn't get to move of them!

Was anyone able to decipher what the whiteboard behind Ned and Dan says?
Tatiana, looking forward to seeing (and hearing) you in Amsterdam!


Can't wait to rock out :)

I see that you need some help understanding steem & steemit better Tatiana, I hope this helps.

Also Steemswap seems to be shutting down but there is now peerhub instead of it.

This is from "Dan's Evil Plan"post.

Is open to the public?

Yes, but it's in it's really early alpha stage.

Creator here. Yeah it is early alpha. It's all open source so there is that. Please check it out though!

With the amount of original content already popping up here on steemit, I can't wait for a marketplace built right in for them.

Steem is trading up this morning. Do we call this the Tatiana bounce?!?
What a timely and well balanced episode! That fact that a Steem skeptic like Brian Sovryn was included, and that Ned and Dan were able to answer his questions to any rational observers liking... well that was a powerful moment. Let's keep building this culture here. #buildfreedom

OMG you're right re the bounce haha. I think everyone was really civil and had a nice discourse! Thanks for watching!

I rather see Tatiana bounce ;)

There has been some talk about Steemit being a scam or Ponzi Scheme, but after actually seeing these two on the video, my intuition tells me that such negativity is nonsense. Thanks to Tatiana and the panelists.

Thanks! I think there are some good questions though that would be great to address further. It's pretty complicated, not sure what can be done in an hour you know? However, I loved all the guests.

Cool post.... thanks for doing this. I don't typically watch many videos, but this one I watched and/or listened to completely.

I'm glad you liked it! I think we could have gone on 2-3 more hours with all the questions that remained, but I wanted to keep it short since 1 hour is already a long commitment from an audience.

Good job getting these amazing minds together in one place.

Why is the $5 I received from joining, plus $5 for Steem (via Bitcoin), and $5 Steem Power (via Bitcoin) - totaling $15 investment, now worth $5.67? It's the worst investment I've ever made :P

Steem felt in price, thats why. I would not worry about it, Steem is rocking!
