What happened to Steem so that it rose up from obscurity to the limelight a month ago?

According to Steemit’s CEO and co-founder Ned Scott, the financial incentive inherent to the platform has allowed it to gain much popularity in a very short period of time. Through Steemit, users and content creators can monetize their time and their energies, and share in the profits.

“Before Steemit, consumers have away their efforts for free, uploading thoughts, blogs and other content to every social networks; now they can do it and get truly rewarded for their participation,” Scott said.

Thanks Gaianhuuto! How much FIMK do you want?  ;D

About the reason, that's what I kind of figured. I attempted much similar project 3 years ago, some shattered relics remain at http://web.archive.org/web/20130901045121/http://theta.fi/index.php/topic,7.0.html

In addition to embedded tips / upvotes, and forum's internal crypto transfer system working in a really advanced way over the Bitcoin protocol, The Theta forum had a monthly basic income system not dissimilar to FIMK's current basic income.

So that's where the FIMK saga, still going on, began in a way. Crypto incentivized social media was way ahead of its time, like many of the FIMK features still are. Interesting how it all comes together in BIIIG ways through the various minds working in the same scene!

Hahaa. Carrying myself as a true Finn, I feel embarrased to even think I have a possibility to influence the amount of the reward. :)

Whatever it may be, I will consider it fair :)

And btw, it is nice to know about backgrounds and steps of innovation behind these ongoing projects.

3000 FIMK paid to FIM-HJ75-GKU7-3AG6-2LPZ7. Thanks again!

(If you'd like to investigate HOW exactly and where the Steemit platform was promoted, that would be even more interesting... platforms don't just get popular by themselves no matter how good they are. Marketing plays a critical role).  ;)
