So steemit is a decentralized social media platform and all its content is distributed on the blockchain? Where is the website hosted? Is it also hosted in a decentralized way?

Anyone can host a copy of the website on their own computer by downloading and installing the opensource website.

When you visit steemit.com you are seeing the one hosted by us, but we are no the only host. There is even a host on a TOR hidden service for those who are interested!

Thanks for your info :)
