I Love Steem
I've been a big fan of Steem ever since I joined earlier this year... it reminds me a lot of the early days on other social channels... Easily making new friends with real people, and having real conversations. In fact @BaasDeBeer, the other guy in this video, I met through Twitter back in ~2009 and we've been great mates ever since.
The difference being that you get paid for what you post on Steemit (or any of the other dApps). No worries if you don't know what a dApp is... that's not important for now. What IS important is that you get paid (in STEEM cryptocurrency) for whatever you post.
All good and well, but if you had millions STEEM, but couldn't do anything with it, then technically it is worthless... might as well get paid in "likes" then :P
Steem is worth real money - #Steem4Food
Fortunately STEEM CAN be traded on various exchanges for fiat currency, which is also nice... but wouldn't it be cooler if you could spend your STEEM at retail shops as well... just like using your credit card?
Well... I've heard of a few small businesses across the globe already accepting STEEM, and now you can spend your STEEM in South Africa as well :-)
In this video you can watch @BaasDeBeer and I swap "0s & 1s" for a "Pork Acoustics Roll".
1 STEEM is worth US$0.35 at the time of making this video, but in South Africa 4 STEEM is now worth ZAR75.00 (~US$1.35/STEEM) ... that's more than 4 times more than if you just sold it on an exchange... when buying food at a BraaiBoy food stand anyway :P
I'm going to be working hard in 2019 to convince my other business owner mates to be doing the same ... #WatchThisSpace ;-).
P.S. Thanks Park Acoustics (https://www.parkacoustics.co.za/) for supporting the 1st transaction and getting on board for 2019.
OK, but what IS STEEM?
If you're reading this post because of a link on any of my other social channels, then you may not have heard of Steem/Steemit yet, but if you reach out to me I'll gladly give you the elevator speech. You can drop me a DM on whichever platform you're following me on, or message me through my website: http://braaiboy.co.za/contact-braaiboy/
Early in 2019, I'm going to be starting monthly hands-on workshops to get my blogger/vlogger friends on board with Steem. Together with the legends behind @Steem-UA we'll be creating free & instant Steemit accounts for everyone that's interested.
As with everything else I do, it's gonna be a party!
So even you don't think you're interested in getting paid for the posts you are already making on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / YouTube / Whatever, then come for the all-you-can eat braaivleis buffets and down a couple of BraaiBerys (i.e. BraaiBoy Lager) with me and just have a jol.
I've been working with @BaasDeBeer, @TheArneD & @Donsie (who promises to have his #introduceyourself post up before the end of the day ... nudge, nudge @Donsie) over the last couple of weeks to fine-tune what a newbie Steemian experiences and/or wants to know/doesn't understand. i.e. These workshops are gonna give you a massive head-start in understanding the (only at first) tricky Steem ecosystem.
Liked this video/recipe? Maybe you thought it was crap?
