      About Steem

      Steem is a cryptocurrency that was launched in July 2016. It is mainly used on the Steemit blockchain powered platform, where users create, vote and manage content similar to other social media structures, such as Facebook and Reddit. By creating, reviewing or voting content, users of the Steemit platform receive Steem tokens as incentive for their activity. Steem can be exchanged for Steem Power, which grants the holder additional Steem as they are generated. Steemit platform also utilizes a stablecoin, called Steem Dollars, whose value is closely tied to the US Dollar. On Steemit, all content, reviews and information is stored on the blockchain database, allowing most actions users perform on the platform to be linked for monetary incentives. Users also exert influence with the amount of Steem Power they hold, creating a reputation system that is based on their holdings and activity. Steem and Steemit were created by Ned Scott and Dan Larimer, EOS’s CEO.

      History of Steem(STEEM)

      Steem like all other cryptocurrencies is based on the model of the first actual cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. However, before Bitcoin’s and Steem’s time , cryptocurrencies were much more different, relying instead on a centralized power structure rather than the decentralized governance we see today. If it weren’t for the works of cryptographers such as David Chaum, Wei Dai, Nick Szabo and Hal Finney, who established some of the ground concepts for modern cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Steem would not exist today. However, the most important reason why Steem was made possible is thanks to a person or a group of people under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. He took the concepts that cryptographers before him established and managed to create an actual peer-to-peer electronic money system that couldn’t be counterfeited. If Satoshi Nakamoto didn’t create Bitcoin, it is hard to say if Steem or most cryptocurrencies would exist today.

      Steem is a cryptocurrency with the symbol STEEM and it’s price ticker on our website is 0.00. Its current price is 0.00 and the total change over the past 24 hours is 0.00. Steem boasts a volume of 657,100.48 in the past 24 across your selected exchanges.

      Steem Characteristics

      Cryptocurrencies like Steem use strong cryptographic protocols, or very complex computer code to secure transfers of information, in order to create a safe system that is notoriously difficult to crack. The programmer of digital currencies such as Steem base these protocols on complex mathematic and computer engineering fundamentals, creating a structure that makes it impossible to replicate funds for Steem and also hides the identities of the parties involved on any transaction on Steem network , unless the participants freely disclose their information.

      Steem Operates on a Blockchain

      Steem, like most cryptocurrencies operates on a blockchain, a new and disruptive technology that offers benefits for storing, securing and transferring information that was not otherwise possible before its inception. The idea of blockchain was first discovered in 1991 by Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta, however it was not until an anonymous person or group under the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto that created the first functional blockchain (Bitcoin’s blockchain) and improved on the ideas of Haber and Scornetta to create a truly functional distributed ledger.

      You can imagine the blockchain that Steem is based on as a giant, distributed database where every transaction’s information is recorded and then spread on a massive network of connected nodes or computers. The information for transaction of Steem is then multiplied and stored on each individual node, so in order to change it you would have to access he majority of the Steem’s nodes at the same time, which has so far proven to be impossible.

      The advantages that Steem runs on a blockchain are that it is very cost effective to run, compared to other centralized resources, due to the cost of operating being split amongst all the network participants.

      No one can alter the defining characteristics that govern Steem base, unless certain conditions are met and changes are implemented by the developer team or a network wide consensus is reached for the changes to be applied.

      One disadvantage of operating on a blockchain is that generally, transactions with Steem are final, meaning that is very unlikely that a transaction can be rolled back if a mistake occurs. Be careful when transacting cryptocurrencies such as Steem and make sure you double check all the details of the transaction before submitting it.

      Steem also boasts a higher degree of safety, as the mechanisms of the blockchain are incredibly hard to crack

      Steem Advantages

      Decentralized Point of Control

      Steem (STEEM) is defined by a decentralized governance system, which does not rely on a single point of control to manage transactions on the network in the same way a bank would. Because of this Steem’s network features a distinct advantage that makes it very difficult to counterfeit or imitate. Another advantage of being decentralized is that any attacks on Steem’s network will have to be in multiple places at the same, whereas a bank or any centralized system will have an host of servers in one place.

      Cost Efficient

      Generally speaking, auditing records is a time consuming and expensive process, whereas for Steem which stores all its records on the blockchain, this can be done with minimal effort and in a much shorter time.

      Establishing a Digital Identity

      You can create your own identity on the Steem blockchain, which can be though of as an account of sorts. Whenever you open an “account” on the Steem blockchain, you will be given a private key, which lets you interact with the blockchain, and a public key, which let others identify and interact with you.

      Immutable

      Since all information that is transmitted on the Steem blockchain is stored and secured on a wide network of computers or nodes, you can always be sure that the information presented is valid and has not been tampered with.

      Steem Supply Details

      Steem is distinguished from traditional fiat currencies due to way the supply works for most cryptocurrencies. Another interesting fact about Steem’s supply is there can be two other types of supply aside from the maximum supply. One is the total supply which indicates the amount of coins there are currently in existence. For Steem the total supply is 358518881. This is the sum of all Steem units that have been mined or created since the network’s creation. . The other one is the circulating supply which for Steem is 341544787. This can be different that the total supply due factors such as funds being locked in escrow, coins being locked in masternodes.

The risk here is losing or damaging the sheet of paper with your Steem public key.

Usually the hardware device that you store your Steem on is offline which is a great security advantage.
