Reviews for Steem

  • Jake Brukhman on Steem Co-founder of CoinFund

    Steem delegation is probably the most underappreciated yet advanced cryptomarket out there right now in the hands of actual users who are extracting actual utility. It (a) mitigates reputation inequality, and (b) is a money market for idle reputation/attention. Ingenious.

  • Fred Wilson on Steem VC at Union Square Ventures

    To be clear, I don’t think Steem has this all figured out. I don’t own any Steem (or at least I don’t think I do). And I think they have made things a bit too complicated with their tokens and incentives. To their credit, they have taken steps to simplify things, and they are headed in the right direction.

    Over $20 million in STEEM distributed to Steemit users since launch, says Ned Scott of Steemit. Proof of a real work token.

  • Chris Burniske on Steem Partner at Placeholder Ventures

    STEEM's SMTs are like ETH's "ERC-20 tokens but with certain built-in β€˜Proof-of-Brain’ properties...specifically for digital content businesses"... (hat tip Jesse Walden). Good work Steemit and team, compensating human activity instead of machine activity is πŸ€”πŸ’­πŸ’­

  • Joseph Young on Steem Financial Analyst and Journalist

    I still can't believe people fell for the Steem Ponzi scheme. Myopic users thought they'd receive $4000 / blog post.

  • Tuur Demeester on Steem Founder of Adamant Capital

    As I said before, I have serious concerns about STEEM. How is it mined? What's to say there's no hidden "god mode"?

  • Saifedean Ammous on Steem Bitcoin Economist and Author of The Bitcoin Standard

    Researching altcoins and astonished at their idiocy. Ripple is even stupider than Ethereum, but Steem has got to be the stupidest of them all.

  • Nic Carter on Steem Partner at Castle Island VC and Co-founder of Coinmetrics

    Steem has already collapsed into a hopeless mess of politics, campaigning, and bribery. The proof of work is simply obscured, not absent. Raw hashes are a lot more elegant.
