There will be many many posts about this, so let me be one of the first to join so I won't be the most annoying :-)
There's a new project in town and it's called Snax and the idea is: give social media users crypto for activity they are already doing. So no new social media platform, no new ways or places to communicate, just getting rewarded for sending out Tweets and... Now also for posting your blogs on Steem!
How it works
You link your current Twitter account by installing a browser plug-in and sending a tweet. You'll get 50 SNAX just for doing that. From that moment on your tweets will automatically be rewarded with SNAX in your wallet without any other action needed. Whoa!
But it's getting better...
From May 14th you'll be able to receive SNAX for posting on Steem (like you already do!) as well! Yes yes yes, the Snax team was so smart as to invite Steemians to join in a bounty program. Writing a short post with the tag #snaxbountyprogram is enough to be eligible, and with short I mean: 1000 characters. As they said in the Discord: "Not everyone wants to/can write long articles".
Join and get rewarded for the things you're already doing...
Why not? It takes only a few minutes and from that moment on you'll receive a coin next to your STEEM without doing anything extra. In the case of twitter: you'd earn a coin instead of not earning a coin ;-) It's a no-brainer to me.
The bounty is based on the amount of followers you have, after that they will calculate an 'Attention Rate' per post and send out SNAX based on that. They will not factor in Steem Power, just the attention a post gets. So very active/well-read Minnows can earn as much as any Whale.
I like that the Snax team is aiming to get more non-crypto people in crypto - about 30% of the Snax joiners were 'far away from crypto' before Snax - which is a huge thing in my opinion.
Are you going to join? I hope you do!
