STEEM's Ways to Contribute

Steem has 3 different asset classes: 

  • Steem (STEEM)- the liquid currency. You can earn it by posting, commenting etc...
  • Steem Power (SP) - Users are able to commit their STEEM to a 13-week vesting schedule, providing them with additional benefits within the platform. Committed STEEM is called Steem Power (SP). When users vote on content, their influence is directly proportional to the amount of SP that they have.
  • Steem Dollars (SBD) is similar to convertible notes, for startups. It allows the holder to convert to the backing token with minimum notice at the fair market price of the token.

MORE IDEAS FROM Powering Communities and Opportunities - Steem

Steem's challenge is to create a system capable of identifying the contributions that are needed and their relative worth, using a methodology that can scale to an unbounded number of people. Steem is designed to enable effective micropayments for all kinds of contributions by changing the economic equation:

Readers can vote content up or down and Steem will use their votes to determine individual rewards.

Steem Blockchain

Steem is a blockchain that supports community building and social interaction with cryptocurrency rewards. The concept of Steemit is like a decentralized version of reddit.com.

Steem aims to support social media and online communities by returning much of its value to the people who provide valuable contributions by rewarding them with cryptocurrency, and through this process create a currency that is able to reach a broad market, including people who have yet to participate in any cryptocurrency economy.

Steem Allocation & Supply

Since December 2016, Steem began creating new tokens at an annual inflation rate of 9.5%. The inflation rate decreases at a rate of 0.01% every 250,000 blocks, or about 0.5% per year.

Of the new tokens that are generated: 

  • 75% go to fund the reward pool, which is split between authors and curators. 
  • 15% of the new tokens are awarded to holders of SP 
  • 10% pays for the witnesses to power the blockchain.

Steem’s blockchain (Graphene) is a variation of the Bitcoin Blockchain. It also powers Bitshares and EOS:

  • A block is created every 3 seconds.
  • The consensus algorithm involves 21 witnesses who verify the blocks.
  • Each block contains: the texts of all posts and comments, transactions of Steem between users, upvotes and downvotes , follow, unfollow, etc.

Steem aims for a fair and inclusive social media through crypto:

  • Everyone who contributes to a venture should receive pro-rata ownership & payment from the venture. Just like when startup allocate shares through investement rounds. 
  • All forms of capital are equally valuable. This means that those who contribute their scarce time and attention toward producing and curating content for others are just as valuable as those who contribute cash. This is the sweat equity principle.
  • The community creates value to serve its members: curated high quality news, stable cryptocurrency pegged to the US dollar etc...

A world computer & a settlement layer

Ethereum is a “world computer”: It lets people build apps & products with money baked into the code. If you believe that web3 is going to continue to grow, then you likely believe that over time,

Ethereum will become the “settlement layer” of the internet: All sorts of transactions (whether on-chain or even Visa) will turn to Ethereum to exchange funds and keep secure, immutable records.

Owning ETH is like owning shares on the internet. Demand for ETH will go up with increased web3 adoption, while upcoming changes will decrease the supply of ETH and let more value accrue to holders.

What is Polkadot (DOT)?

Polkadot is a network protocol that allows arbitrary data —not just tokens— to be transferred across blockchains.

This interoperability seeks to establish a fully decentralized and private web, controlled by its users, and simplify the creation of new applications, institutions and services.

Polkadot can transfer this data across public, open, permissionless blockchains as well as private, permissioned blockchains.
