Real News Delaware has joined Steemit, a new kind of social media platform.
The intent of Steemit is to promote the creation of original content. The large social media platforms assume some measure of benefit from all of the content on their pages, whether shared, copied, or original. Metadata is then sold for profit.
This nascent platform gives its users the chance to profit instead.
From the FAQ page:
How does Steemit work?
Steemit is a social media platform that works by having the crowd reward the crowd for their content. It does this thanks to the Steem blockchain and cryptocurrency; Steem is ‘minted’ daily and distributed to content producers according to the votes they get.
How does Steemit differ from other social media websites?
Most social media sites extract value from their userbase for the benefit of shareholders alone. Steemit is different, it’s a new kind of attention economy. By connecting with the Steem blockchain (which is decentralized and controlled by the crowd), Steemit users receive all the benefits and rewards for their attention.
Does it cost anything to post, comment, or vote?
No. It is free to post, comment, and vote on content on Steemit.com. You might even get paid for it!
So expect to see a lot of material created there as well, on a variety of topics.
