Steem Dollars A tokenized social media platform

eSteem is a blockchain-based social media platform that pays users and content creators with SBD.

Background

Steem Network developed the eSteem social media platform to incentivize content creators and consumers to participate in a network where all contributors are compensated. The core development team at Steem Network developed this model in contrast to legacy social media platforms that compensate shareholders for user-generated content, but not always the content creators. Steem Network was designed to reverse the legacy social media model and compensate platform users while allowing them to maintain control over their data.
