The first real step in my journey with Prosocial Labs is this ebook called "Introduction to Cryptoeconomics - The Path Towards a Trust Economy", which just went live on Amazon and can be purchased here. If you are really interested in this subject but cannot afford the cost, give me a shout out and I can send a bunch of free copies out to people.
At this moment the ebook only exists on Amazon, but in a couple of days I will also publish it on platforms that permit referrals and anyone that has access to information networks can promote this ebook and get a portion of the sales. If you are interested in this, we can get in touch and I will send you a copy so that you know exactly what you are promoting :).
One of the chapters is dedicated to the steem ecosystem, explaining the unique steem blockchain mechanics and presents three goal oriented communities that operated in this space, @utopian-io @fundition and @steemstem .
Ebook short description:
"Welcome to Introduction to Cryptoeconomics - the Path Towards a Trust Economy, a non-technical approach to understanding bitcoin and the new digital trust economy that was mined into existence in 2009.
The most common misconception in the cryptocurrency space is that it all boils down to market value. Back in 2010 with the dot-com bubble burst, a lot of people lost faith in the internet and thought it was a dying technology just because most internet companies failed. There are a lot of similarities between the internet and the crypto space today, the main one being that the true value lies in the technology itself, not the market value designated by speculation. So, sit back and enjoy an ebook about cryptocurrency that does not promise to make you rich, but will attempt to explain this technology and put in into perspective."
