Steem is a blockchain database that supports community building and social interaction
with cryptocurrency rewards. Steem combines concepts from social media with lessons
learned from building cryptocurrencies and their communities. An important key to
inspiring participation in any community, currency or free market economy is a fair
accounting system that consistently reflects each person’s contribution. Steem is the first
cryptocurrency that attempts to accurately and transparently reward an unbounded
number of individuals who make subjective contributions to its community.
