Steemit:一家由区块链驱动的社交网络

博客与社交网站Steemit的灵感来自Reddit。Steemit的运行基础,是一个向发布和策划最佳内容的用户和内容创作者支付酬劳的区块链。

Steemit成立于2016年,由BitShares创始人Ned Scott和Daniel Larimer联合创办。平台虽然新,但在社区规模和内容方面却增长迅速。 截至2017年5月,Steemit拥有超过16.8万个注册账户。

Steemit:如何运行?

Steemit使用算法来确定每个用户贡献的价值:用户对平台的贡献越多,他或她的影响也就随之增长。

用户可以是策划者,贡献者或身兼两种身份,可写的主题包罗万象,从主流到小众。 像Reddit一样,Steemit的内容也被分为小组和主题。

该社交网络的运行基于一个被称为Steem的分散式网络。 如同比特币,Steem是一个带有可转让代币的区块链。 在Steem基础上有两个代币:Steem代币和Steem 美元。

Steem代币是该网站的基本代币,用于奖励上传文章、图像和评论的用户,以及那些提供并点赞流行内容的用户。 Steem在多个加密货币市场上被交易,其价值决定了Steemit发布奖励的价值,也支持着Steem美元的价值。

Steem美元是一项旨在与美元挂钩的资产,可用于货物和服务的支付。 和Steem代币一样,Steem美元也可以在加密货币市场进行交易。

Steem也可以转换成Steem Power,从而将其价值锁定两年。 在此期间,Steem Powers在用户的账户中通过一个被称为立桩标界(staking)的过程来增长,这是一种验证和确认Steem区块链的数据的方法。

虽然Steemit.com是Steem区块链内容的参考前端网站界面,但该网站同样允许第三方网站和应用程序与Steem数据库进行连接和交互。

几个开发人员已经开发出了上述功能和目前存在的许多其他界面设计和功能,如Instagram风格的图像发布,Busy.org--一个与Steem交互的社交网络,以及eSteem,一个Steem交互的Android和iOS应用程序。

艰难的开端

尽管Steemit在前三个月价格上涨, 2016年7月份的一场黑客攻击引发了有关安全性的问题。 与此同时,这一新社交网络引起的热潮也引起了加密货币届的关注。

一些加密货币届成员也公开表达了他们的关注,并指出了Steemit存在的"ponzi计划方面"等问题。 截止目前,负面评论导致Steem的价格从2016年7月中旬的4 美元 / STEEM降低至2017年3月中旬的0.07 美元/ STEEM,下降幅度超过98%。

更为雪上加霜的是,联合创始人Dan Larimer两个月前辞去了Steemit的首席技术官职务。 拉里默的两句话声明并未给出离开的解释或理由。

然而,Steemit仍然坚挺,且用户数量不断增长。

Steem代币现在交易价格在1.30美元/ STEEM左右,市值超过3.10亿美元,在市值方面位居更受欢迎的比特币(市值390亿美元)和以太币( 市值:180亿美元)之后,成为第十六大加密货币。

Inspired by Reddit, Steemit is a blogging and social networking website running on top of a blockchain that pays users and content creators for posting and curating the best content.

Founded in 2016, Steemit is the brainchild of Ned Scott and Daniel Larimer, creator of BitShares. The platform is relatively new but has nevertheless grown rapidly in community size and content. As of May 2017, Steemit had over 168,000 registered accounts.

Steemit: how it works?

Steemit uses an algorithm to determine the value of each user’s contribution: the more a user contributes to the platform, the more his or her influence grows.

Users can be curators, contributors or both, and can write about most any topic, from mainstream to niche subjects. Like Reddit, content on Steemit is organized into sub-groups and topics.

The social network runs on top of a decentralized network called Steem. Like Bitcoin, Steem is a blockchain with transferable tokens. In the case of Steem, there are two tokens: the Steem token and the Steem Dollar.

The Steem token is the network’s base token used to reward users who upload articles, images and commentary, as well as those who source and upvote popular content. Steem is traded on multiple cryptocurrency exchanges and markets, and its value determines the value of posting rewards on Steemit. Its value also backs the value of Steem Dollars.

The Steem Dollar is an asset intended to be pegged to the US dollar which can be used for payments for goods and services. Like Steem tokens, Steem Dollars can be traded at cryptocurrency exchanges.

Steem can also be converted into Steem Power, which locks up its value for a two-year period. During that period, Steem Powers in one’s account grow through a process referred to as staking, a method for validating and confirming data on the Steem blockchain.

While Steemit.com is the reference front-end website interface for the blockchain content of Steem, the network also allows third-party websites and apps to connect and interact with the Steem database.

Several developers have already done so and numerous alternative interface designs and features currently exist such as Instagram-style image posting, as well as?Busy.org, a Steem-interacting social network, and?eSteem, a Steem-interacting Android and iOS app.

A rocky start

Despite a price surge during Steemit’s first three months of existence, a hack in July 2016 raised questions about security. At the same time, the craze surrounding the new social network draw attention from the cryptocurrency community.

Some members of the community voiced their concerns publically and pointed out the “ponzi scheme aspects” of Steemit, among other issues. The negative publicity pushed the price of Steem down by 98%+ from 4 USD/STEEM in mid-July 2016 to 0.07 USD/STEEM as of mid-March 2017.

And as if that were not enough, co-founder Dan Larimer resigned as CTO of Steemit two months. Larimer’s two-sentence post gave no explanation or reason for the departure.

Nevertheless, Steemit still remains and apparently has a growing user base.

The Steem token is now trading at around 1.30 USD/STEEM and has a market capitalization?of over US$310 million, making it the 16th largest cryptocurrency by market cap behind more popular ones such as Bitcoin (market cap: US$39 billion) and Ethereum (market cap: US$18 billion).

    ponzi scheme 是庞氏骗局,而不是翻译成ponzi计划
