Hello Steemians, today I'm going to try my best to explain some basic facts about steemit,with the hope of guiding some newcomers in this community.
My discussions will be tabulated in subtopics.
I'll try my best to put down as much as I can.
WHAT I KNOW ABOUT STEEMIT
Steemit is a social media platform that rewards it's participants for posting quality contents and curating on quality contents also.
The platform doesn't accommodate private chats yet,but I believe it'mainly geared towards promoting the cryptocurrency "Steem" ,followed by steem dollar,and the Tron . Because these are what you're rewarded with for creating quality content.
Steemit is comprised of various communities,with various areas of concentrations,these communities help participants to make decisions and participate effectively in their communities of choice.
HOW CAN I EARN IN STEEM?
You earn either steem,steem dollar,Tron,or a combination of these cryptocurrencies by;
- Receiving upvotes from other members of the platform for creating quality contents. Which is called "author rewards".
- Receiving what is called "curation rewards" for upvoting contents created by other members of the platform.
- Bringing in new members to the platform. This gets you a mentorship fee.
ARE UPVOTES GUARANTEED?
Upvotes are attracted by the quality of your posts(contents). In steemit you're advised to put in effort and time on order to creat contents worthy of curation (upvoted).
There are rules guiding the platform,for example: plagiarism, phishing, spamming, copyrighting,etc are not allowed on the platform. Falling to observe and abstain from these acts could get your posts ignored and not voted,or even get them down voted.
SHOULD I STICK TO ONE COMMUNITY?
Another goal steemit tries to achieve is building relationships between individuals of diverse race and tribes,sticking to a single community doesn't help in achieving this. So you're advised to join as many communities as you can carry. By so doing you also get the opportunity of getting involved in contests that might give you more earnings.
