    That post received a fair $8+. The account in question doesn't even have $50. It's ALL about the followers. Quality matters, but not as much as who sees it. Does it exist really if nobody sees it? Nope. Who's going to upvote something that already doesn't have a lot of traction behind it.

    Build a following first while focusing on quality second. Both should go hand in hand.

    My earnings pretty much quadrupled, so yeah it was dope for that one day. After that like honestly I'm earning double or triple than I was before. I mean I have days where I make over $100

    **edit**

    I haven't updated on this thread just because I got too lazy lol. I spend my time on things that pay well, and even though crypto's doing ehhhh right now I still make good money from low effort. The other day I made like $400 from Steemit. I'll probably be averaging $500 daily within the next 3-6 months.

    I checked this thread weeks back, and now stumbled on here again. Looks like you are earning nicely. Have you redeemed the amount that you earned into actual money or coins yet? Just curios. Or is it not how it works?

    I've redeemed a portion, yeah. I finally started cashing in a bit but mainly I keep putting back into Steem power because I want to be a whale that upvotes my own shit :) I'll admit, anybody who doesn't upvote their own comments at 100% is just missing out on cash.

    It's been explained earlier in this thread. There's links. And that link you posted is old as hell, from when Steemit first came out. Obviously itll still have glitches (its in beta mode) but hey, it works. For people who aren't obsessed about money, only about posting blogs.. well, it may not be the platform for them

    The article was published on May 21st 2017, about 5 weeks ago, I don't think it is 'old as hell'. They talked about the co-founder Dan Larimer's resignation on March 15th 2017.

    Hi there. I started 10 days ago, i didn't invest any money, got 2 trending posts, and ill get at least few hundred SBD and SP ( over $1k worth , im actually satisfied) . However i do not trust in holding power and curating. I am thinking about powering down. I'm just too stupid to comprehend their business model on larger scale. What would happen if whole planet were on steemit, how much would SBD be worth, how much average person would earn? Such a complicated things to imagine, market value could be just a bubble fueled by drug money. Anyway, authoring part is no brainer, even if everything crashes you are being well paid. But platform has endless problems, for example hacker groups can easily hold top spot on trending page with their bots. You can already spot mass production of useless articles, endless meta topics, raffles, giveaway, pure spam, CHEATING trail groups, crypto GURUS. Its impossible to convince people to be their best version. With really cool content, bubble would grow easier, even if it means clueless redneck investors.

    We should start a chat where we upvote each other's posts. I add about $.80 per upvote. Not a lot but could help things grow if we had a decent sized group.

    Altbough the whole System sounds confusing I think I will give it a try...
    Already applied and waiting to be approved.

    Can t I just automate the liking/commenting? If I get paid a few cents for every like that could be really profitable too...

    Just do an ICO instead lol.. but in order to make even an ICO you need a lot of investment capital AND experience with coding, marketing and with the blockchain.
