Let's Talk About Steem - The Social Blockchain

Broadcasting the Blockchain


Yesterday, @timcliff hosted a social media blast day campaign to strengthen awareness of the Steem blockchain. You can browse some of the articles and content developed uniquely for this event under the tag #ssmbd. On Sunday, whilst meandering the depths of Discord, @techslut reached out to see if we might join in on the fun. Graphic design? Education? Crypto awareness? Of course! Over the last year, our team has been very active in cultivating Steem awareness through public art projects, an exhibition, university lectures, workshops, magazines and more.

As we all know, kickstarting an educational crypto-conversation is not easy. This campaign is a tricky one. Steem carries a simple premise (that content and engagement is valuable), but the mechanics behind it are very complex. One image, one tweet or even 1 article simply cannot cover all the bases.

Boiling it Down

Campaigns like these are about starting the conversation. With this animated graphic (scroll down) we wanted to create a series of punchlines that dumb down all the best of Steem. It's a lot to cover! Our tweet has done well so far, with 22 retweets / 45 likes. Shout out to Steem's official twitter account for the retweet!

How do we continue the conversation?


Steem has it's foot in the door (so to speak). This campaign is a step in the right direction. We need more proactive witnesses to rally the masses and cultivate awareness for this blockchain. Still, any grassroots campaign needs something to point to in an effort to learn more. Where would you direct newcomers / investors interesting in the steps beyond your catchy Tweet or Facebook link?

This is beautiful! I love the hard work and great design you're putting into getting the word out on Steem. :-)

Thanks so much for your kind words and support @protegeaa :D

I couldn't agree more on everything you said. I had been here for a couple of minutes thinking what to add more about Steem. Well, I was able to think one important - Communities.

It empowers communities. The thing that has made a big impact here in Cebu, Philippines and will empower more as the Hivemind arrives.

Oh! I forgot. @sndbox leads regarding community support that we are receiving. A great journey with you @hansikhouse | @voronoi.

@jassennessaj You're right it's all about community! I've just joined Steemit and trying to bring the whole CRU community with me, that means working on getting some of our near 10 000 members/supporters world wide to join Steemit and learn this stuff with me. I too really appreciate the posts made by @sndbox and must say a huge THANK YOU, you are helping me to make sense of it all. In turn I'll be able to help others, trying to get them to stop wasting their time posting on Facebook and other social media platforms when they can be posting here and earning Cryptocurrency and $$ :) There is a saying in the Hip Hop community "Each One, Teach One" really looking forward to learning and teaching what I learn. It feels good to be here and part of Steemit and the Steem Blockchain! Onelove - Namaste - C4L

Yes, communities will get more and more important and more weight will be put on these.

I'm new here and anything I can soak up right now is extremely helpful. Thanks for the time you're taking to expand this wonderful and exiting (new to me) community. Peace.

I saw your tweet and it is really amazing, the general consensus about the blast day is to ensure the general public get effected with the STEEM syndrome and hopefully we are achieving that with our effort already in line. Also, if we continue at this pace, STEEM will definitely be the talk in the cryptospace.

Yours, @mediahousent host wafrica discord show

I have noticed the huge presence of @sndbox on their twitter handle and the impresssion is massive if you ask me............... when it comes to their propagation of the steem news

.............no gain saying

It's interesting to know that @sndbox has more support/response outside Steemit. What do you think could be responsible for this and how can Steemit improve internal community response?

Hi @gregjava thank you asking this,

It's interesting to know that @sndbox has more support/response outside Steemit.
From my perspective the support that @sndbox has amassed is basically framed on the footing of consistent hard work that they directed towards spreading the steem gospel....

Aint no day on twitter you would notice a tweet from @sndbox or @creativecrypto about steem and with such consietency it is natural you might most likely get some level of following and subsequent engagement in the form of replies, retweetsand likes.

I retweet most of their tweets that have me enticed and many other guys also do.

Well, we actually weren't looking for any kind of support internally. Steemit has fantastic crypto-awareness already / plus a strong understanding of the blockchain. Our goal - and the goal of the whole campaign - was to make others aware of Steem.

The goal was to get more engagement and conversations going about the Steem blockchain on Twitter, Facebook and Reddit etc. (where awareness is very low).

It's important to broadcast outside of internal apps like Steemit in order to grow the community as a whole :)

I have set up a few Steemit Groups on Facebook and bringing many new artists from Facebook to Steemit .. as soon as they realize that they can be paid for their creative content here...

Awesome! and I'm back to attending the Borneo Blockchain Summit to spread some Steem Powarrrrrrr as well 😂.

Thank you @sndbox for the support too!

great information

Steem carries a simple premise (that content and engagement is valuable), but the mechanics behind it are very complex.
I really would have wished the process was as sleek as it sounds but am stocked with it anyways.

This is a very nice comprehensive overview of the blockchain and Steem in general. It is great to continue to explain the system in this fashion to assist new comers with understanding the business model and upcoming projects.

Empower artists, writers, musicians... that's something I'd LOVE to do.

I'm not just that good at following instructions (especially when they are not simplified or outlined comprehensively for a dullard like me to understand) But, I'm a cool learner (though a bit slow). I'll stop at nothing till my efforts can reach them... you can rest assured of that.

Thank you @sndbox (and @openmic).

@gregjava we have a lot of artists, writers, musicians as part of the CRU community, friends of mine and people I've worked with, perhaps you can help me to get them to Steemit and/or help to them utilize this platform once they are here? Is this something you'd be interested in?

@partiko is a great app! We mean no offense of course!

If this post contained all 441 apps, games and projects we'd have a very, very long animated gif... :)

new sign ups and user retention are still large problems that we have to address

"In Veritas I tell you...spread the word busy in your tags and steemit will be known by noon"

Steemit and Steem are awesome. I hope that some day Steem will go all the way back to $1 ... it should be worth 100x that amount

Great graphics, I'm always struggling to get others excited for Steemit, even though I think it's the perfect platform for other travelers like us.
