STEEM 60 Second Steem Elevator Pitch

My Entry into the 60 Second Elevator Pitch Contest

You are at a major blockchain event. You want to convince me that Steem has a bright future ahead and is worth investing in. The problem is that I'm pretty busy so you'll have to pitch you idea during my elevator ride, that happens to be exactly one minute.

I give a 60 second overview as to why STEEM fits all the requirements of the future mega-blockchain of social media in general. I give the case that as people move away from main-stream platforms, some blockchain based tech will take it's place in the long term.

It May Seem A Little Cheesy

Context is everything. Watching a video of some guy reading a script is not compelling, but imagine you're big-time crypto investor trying to figure out what direction to go. Everyone is saying "their" blockchain will revolutionize the world and list all these technical reasons to invest. Why STEEM?

Imagine someone strikes up a conversation in an elevator about what Youtube has been doing to it's own content producers. The conversation quickly turns towards blockchain. There are so many chains out there! It's a stressful thing to try predicting which ones will succeed or fail long term. Perhaps the blockchain of the future doesn't even exist yet! But there is a blockchain that exist that is just waiting for the right people to discover it. The developers, the celebrities, the youtubers - all the people who make the internet great. They are looking for something secure, something fast, something already established, something profitable, something long-lasting. The Steem blockchain is here and ready and waiting.

I Welcome Your Comments and Criticisms

I'll address some things upfront and put your mind at ease: I don't have a studio, I used a script, I couldn't keep my eyes towards the camera, audio is not perfect, I'm not an actor. There. Now I welcome your comments and criticisms!

Thank you for watching my 60 second elevator pitch. Now go power up your STEEM!

Loved it, short, quite informing and precise. I liked the angle you came in from, demonetizing on youtube, a lot of people can relate to that.

Yes, what's happening on YT is alarming, people are scrambling or an alternative and so often they don't know exactly where to go.

15.12.2019 02:18

Pretty good one! Nice job!

A friend introduced me to a platform
it is sign in with steem's account
He looks a lot like Youtube
If this platform could replaces Youtube
The number of users of STEEM is bound to skyrocket.
because Youtube has a lot of users
