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.
