Steem is a social blockchain that grows communities and makes immediate revenue streams possible for users by rewarding them for sharing content. It’s currently the only blockchain that can power real applications via social apps like Steemit.

A new social media model where contributors get big perks

Shareholders of social media platforms made billions of dollars from user-generated content. The content creators? They made nothing.

Steem flips the model and returns the value to the people who contribute the most. Users become platform stakeholders, maintaining control over their data, and earning cryptocurrency rewards for each contribution they make.

Steem processes more transactions than Bitcoin and Ethereum

It’s already used by over 1 million people on more than 324 Steem-based apps.
