How to create a new Steem account with SteemConnect

I have discovered that it is possible to create a Steem account via another platform than Steemit, AnonSteem or Steem Account Creator! And how? Simply by using Busy SteemConnect! Definitely, these French guys are magical!

This solution is ideal if you want to create a second account or create an account for someone you know. On the other hand, you will have to pay for the account creation fees. So you will not be able to use this service only if you already have a Steem account.

Account creation steps

Before you create an account, make sure you have enough STEEM (not STEEM Power) on the Steem account you already have.

Step 1: Go to SteemConnect Account Creation Website

Go to the following link:

Step 2: Selecting the nickname

Choose a username for your new account.

I invite you to check it by typing this:' s_nickname

As you can see, the @pseudo is already used.


But @pseudo1 is available!


Write it down in the box provided.

Step 3: Backup password

This password is generated automatically, you cannot change it. Be careful, note it, check that it is correct several times because it is your only sesame to enter your new account. It is impossible to regenerate as on most of the applications you are likely to use. Welcome to the world of Blockchain Steem!

If you lose this password, you will not be able to log into your account. I recommend you use a Paper-Wallet to save it.

Step 4: Cost of the account

To find out how much it costs to create your account (which could fluctuate depending on what the Witness decide), go to and see how much it costs to create an account (Account creation fee).

Step 5: Payment

Once you know the price of an account, multiply it by 30. Write this value in STEEM in the first box.

Warning, this minimum value is called bandwidth (you may see this word "bandwidth", possibly in error messages, so don't be stress, down you know what it is). Steem doesn't really explain it but it's very important! If you put less value in your account, your new account will be unable to interact with the blockchain!

If you prefer to pay in VEST, use the second box. Leave it at zero if you do not want to pay in VEST.


How to find the price in VEST?

As a reminder, a VEST is another unit of measurement underlying the STEEM but which is rarely used by users like you and me (but you have to know that, everything about Steem Power on the blockchain is calculated in VEST).

Go to a website such as which is a currency converter.

Step 6: Click on Continue.

Step 7: Sign the transaction with your account and your Active key or password.

Step 8: Verify that the account has been created.

You can check the correct creation of the account via the following link:

And here's how to get an account without having to go through Steemit (and wait too much time)!

@jga Hello !
Do you have discord? I don't forget you about the Translation, just that I am so sick... :( :( :( For days now.
So I just publish some stuff on steem but that its.

I love the idea of opening an account for your dad ! I wanted to do it for my mother but no success. She doesn't want to come (she is not on Internet/facebook/etc).


Hi @roxane, I hope you get well soon!
my account on discord is jga#0699. I have something to show you.


I also posted a new contribution explaining the details of the infographic, if you want to check it out.

Super article, bien détaillé, tout ce qu'il faut comme d'habitude.

Thank you! I never used it to create an account. I might in the near future.


@teamsteem :) Are you going to bring your family on Steem ??? :D :D :D

that's a cool way of doing it. i used now. i really like that a lot, i've made many accounts using that.


@teamhumble Thank you for coming by :-)
How can you deal all your accounts ? I have two and I never post on the second one (@malik.roxane) but I would like to do so ! :D

So there are increasing number of third party apps for steem and steemit.
But i would to suggest that much improvement should be done to the steemit in the mobile app.

Awesome as always! Thank you for the contribution. It has been approved.

Gracias por su explicación

Hey Roxane,
Thanks so much for this info! I think they changed the info. I was not able to find the account creation fee. Is there another place where I can look that up? Thanks so much


Hi @amelia. Were you able to find the creation fee? Im trying as well today but cant find it.

@roxane, when I go to this site I cant find the account creation fee. It does not show up anywhere. Do you have any idea how much it is now?


The price should be the same. It desappeared, strange. If you find it, tell where it is ? @claudiaz


@roxane, where else could I find the price, I have tried twice to register and it keeps giving me error messages? I tried with 3.000 steem someone said how that how much it costs, but I am not sure


i tried it today as well but can't find the creation fee. Was this resolved?


yes I managed to do it last week and paid 3.000 steem


i believe it should be 3 steem then is the minimum to have an account created. Thanks @claudiaz


yes thats correct, try it, it worked for me!
