  1. Create contents that other users will like/upvote
  2. Drop reasonable comments on other users’ post that you find interesting or helpful. Your comment can also get liked or upvoted.

How does Steemit work?

I have given you an insight of how you can monetize your time on steemit, now; let’s go over how the platform works. Steemit is open to everyone with internet access. Thus, your race or location does not matter. The amount you earn for curating depends on your steem power (influence)


Basically, there are three currency units on steemit

Steem Dollars

These have been abbreviated to SBD. Steem dollars are the conventional currencies used in the steemit community to pay authors and content curators. SBDs can be converted to steem in the open market or directly on the site. To earn steem dollar from like activities on your posts, you should choose that your author reward be divided 50/50 between your steem dollar and steem power.


This is the most liquid currency available on the Steemit platform. You can buy this currency with the steem dollar and on open markets. You can also receive it as gifts but cannot earn it on the platform. Like bitcoins they can be sold and bought for or with actual money. Steem Power and Steem Dollars can be bought with this currency.

Steem Power

According to the steemit definition; Steem powers are influence tokens that give you greater control over post payouts and allow you to earn on curation rewards. The bigger your steem power token, the greater your chance of helping content creators earn from your votes as well.

You earn steem power by creating posts and curating on posts. Setting your author reward to 50/50 on posts will earn you 50% steem power from the earnings of that post. Setting it to 100% earn you 100% steem power from the post earnings (you will not earn steem dollars this time)

    What if you wait for the seven days to complete would you be paid? Or would you still go through that process of selling your steem dollars?

      I honestly don’t understand but, you must wait for seven days before claiming your earnings. You can sell your steem dollars after they have been claimed. I hope this helps.
