info_outline What is Steem



Short Description

Steem is an open source blockchain protocol capable of storing social information and distributing tokens based on a Proof-of-Brain algorithm. As the fastest, most transacted blockchain in the world, Steem is the only blockchain protocol capable of, and currently powering, multiple user-facing applications including,,,,, and more

In fact, the Steem blockchain not only processes more transactions than Bitcoin and Ethereum combined, it actually processes more transactions then the next 11 blockchains (in order of transactions) combined!. The Steem blockchain creates opportunities for entrepreneurs by providing a scalable blockchain protocol which their application can tap into that is capable of storing a user’s content, social information, account information, json metadata, and more, while simultaneously empowering those users to earn cryptocurrency tokens (called STEEM) in exchange for sharing that information. The STEEM token features best-in-class properties like 3 second transfers and no fees thanks to Steem’s 3-second blocks and Delegated-Proof-of-Stake algorithm. With the upcoming release of the Smart Media Tokens protocol (SMT), the community will be adding to the Steem blockchain the capability to allow an entrepreneur, developer or community builder to launch their own customizable STEEM-like tokens on top of the Steem blockchain equipped with specific smart contracts for ICOs, Automated Market Makers, Autonomous Token Distribution, Founders Tokens, and more

SMTs will take full advantage of the Steem blockchain’s speed and unparalleled scalability to enable entrepreneurs to monetize their platform and bootstrap the value of their coin by leveraging all the lessons learned from Steem and More details can be found in the SMT Whitepaper at
