Newbie Steemian here!


Hello everyone! I've been following Steemit for a couple of months now but I was hesitating to join the community. Earlier today, I attended a crypto meetup where a fellow Steemian gave me a crash course about the wonders of this platform. It really blew my mind how well developed Steem is after such a short period of time, with a cool set of features and a whole range of social media apps. Adoption has also been on the rise and I've read some great articles about all different kinds of topics. So I finally decided to take the step and enter this vibrant community!

I have been in the crypto space for almost 4 years now and I am also involved in Blockchain related projects as an innovation manager for Telindus. As Steemit has been on my radar lately, I very much look forward to actively participate and contribute to the community in a concrete way. I will be posting a series of articles about my views on the latest trends in the Blockchain and Crypto space and promoting the added values of using such a technology.

Look forward to having a good time with you all!

Welcome to steem, Matthias! If you want to take a peek under the steem hood, I recommend you start with from @steemchiller


Thanks Sorin! I'm currently reading lots articles to familiarise myself wit the Steemit platform, still trying to figure out how to best delegate SP. One step at a time :)


You are right to read up, it's both complex and fascinating.

The steem power, you first need to have it, before delegating it :-)

Have you discovered yet ?

Here's your profile - you have 0.1 SP that are your own, you received this from me when I created your account. The rest up to 10 SP I delegated to you.

There are several ways to earn SP:

  • one is to blog while popular - if people upvote your posts, you earn SP;
  • the other is to buy steem, move it to your steem account and then power up;
  • the third one is from curation (upvoting) which is the one requiring the least effort (you can set upvote rules and then let a "smart contract" upvote for you while you sleep) but also by far the slowest (especially when starting from almost zero)

In your specific case I'd do a bit of all - write a bit and find a following, people who enjoy the same things; buy a bit of steem and power up (it helps a lot to show engagement and attract people to follow you); once you have powered up, start upvoting people, it tends to bring you followers and upvotes for your own posts.


Thank you, that clears things up a bit! I'll try to do as you suggest.
