Steemit/DTube Review 2018 by Adrian Lee

20 July 2018 - I Signed Up with Steemit

What is Steemit? Why did I sign up?

I heard about it a long time ago and only today, I joined.

Visit my account ▶︎

Steemit is a social networking platform with rewards.

The reward is in the form of digital currency called "Steem".

This blockchain thingy is what made me sign up.

You post good content, you make some cryptocurrency.

Facebook doesn't pay you for posting content.

When did Steemit Start?

Steemit started in July 2016.

I hesitated to join because it was in Beta stage.

Funny thing is, it's July 2018 and it's still in Beta.

Beta to me means it's still experimenting with the concept.

But what the heck. I have nothing to lose and I have content to share.

So I'm in.

How does Steemit work?

"There are three digital tokens that make up the Steemit ecosystem: STEEM, Steem Power (SP) and Steem Dollars. STEEM. STEEM is the foundational cryptocurrency of the Steemit network. STEEM can be exchanged for bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies via several prominent exchanges." -

Here’s how it works: 
Post valuable content. Readers vote up or vote down. More votes equal more money (Steem).

How to make money (Steem) on Steemit?

Earn STEEM by being active in the Steemit community, post content, comment, share, and network. The more valuable contributions you make, the more STEEM you should earn.

What can I post on Steemit?

Any legal content. Users can post anything they want, whether it be phrases, quotes, blogs, anecdotes, photos, videos, memes, songs, and more.

Videos! My thing.

How to post videos on Steemit?

You cannot upload a video directly on Steemit. You can paste the URL link to the video from DTube, YouTube, or Vimeo.


What is DTube?

DTube is a video hosting website that runs on the Steemit platform. DTube pays you to post videos! It allows users to upload videos and make money (cryptocurrency) via the upvotes or likes on their post.

Oh great! An alternative to YouTube. Let's sign up.

I logged in to DTube using the same Steemit username and password.

Come check it out ▶︎!/c/adrianleeyc

Oh, look! I already have $0.15, 5 subscribers and a Busy Blog.

Busy Blog? 5 subscribers already?

What is a Busy Blog? 

This is the link I got ▶︎

Isn't this the same as the Steemit blog?

This is getting too overwhelming.

I will find out later after I get started on DTube.

Who are the 5 Followers?

They could be default followers. I will know later.

23 July 2018 - I Posted My First Video and Article

I will be using my successful YouTube series to post.

The first video is posted in DTube together with the title and description.

Automatically, the video description is posted as a blog article on Steemit.

Notice the same URL code at the end?

On Steemit blog, I see "videography" n the URL. What's that?

24 July 2018 - Gained 114 Followers and $0.02 

What!!! 114 followers and $0.02 just after one post? What's happening

25 July 2018 - Uploaded Second Video 

I was wrong. The article on Steemit blog did not appear automatically.

I had to copy and paste the article in the Advanced section DTube upload page.

Added profile banner.

31 July 2018 - 139 Followers and $0.14

Only 2 posts. Now 139 followers and $0.14.

Uploaded the 3rd post.

To be continued...

Can I post affiliate links? Looks like there is no problem.
Can I place links back to YouTube? Most Steemers are doing it.

The original "idea" journal posted on Aril 28, 2015. I have a request to shoot a corporate internal talk and stream it to a live audience in seven different countries.

First 3 things that came to mind is...

1. Video conferencing system.
2. Google+ Hangouts On Air with YouTube Live.
3. Other Streaming services like Ustream.

Video conferencing system is out as that would require a whole set of dedicated equipment.

All I have at this point is.


MacBook Pro Built-in Internal Microphone Location

Where is the built-in internal microphone on the MacBook Pro Retina 15?
There's two of them and both are situated inside the left speaker vent.

The dual built-in microphones are designed tor educe background noise from behind the notebook. The also create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice — instead of the noise around you.
