“Everybody wanted different ways of capturing emails. We would build an entire website but all they wanted was to collect more email addresses, and quizzes just really stood out as the one thing that was different but also working super well.”
“They all are addicted to getting a lot of reactions and sharing, so it was inspiring for them to hear that that could do so well. They started making a lot more quizzes.”
Steemit is an evolution in social media the way bitcoin was an evolution in money and banking.
True statement. There’s plenty of land-grab, gold-rush language around Steemit. There’s plenty of low-quality content and engagement inside it. It’s new and these things take time.
The core thesis of transaction-based publishing and identity is worth checking out on its own. And getting creators and curators compensated for their time, effort, and skill is worthwhile. Quality will improve as talent is recognized and rewarded, reputation is built up, and word spreads.
Also, as Jeff Berwick @dollarvigilante notes:
And, you make money just by posting, upvoting or even commenting on articles … It’s the easiest and cheapest way to get into the cryptocurrency game as you can earn Steem which you can keep or convert into bitcoin, ethereum or any other crypto without risking any of your own money.
