We all try to write good articles in order to earn a little money and share good content.
Curators then upvote the posts and give them some value in steem or USD as shown on steemit.
Lets just assume that you had to pay the price an article is worth in order to read/see it.
There are good articles out there on steemit, I also would pay for.
But its one out of 1000.
For example this post:
Its just a meme from a dMania author which shows a meme. And the post ist worth about 60USD right now.
Now ask yourself, would you pay 60$ just to see it? Nobody would.
This leads me to the question like how value is produced.
