Steem is an amazing blockchain that supports an ever-growing community of users and decentralised applications. The Steem blockchain is referred to as the Steem Ecosystem because of the diverse activity that it supports. Bloggers, photographers, artists, vloggers, developers, researchers, crypto-enthusiasts, alternative media, entrepreneurs, and many more have found their home in the Steem Ecosystem. Unlike many other types of social platforms, Steem rewards those that contribute to it. The power of reward distribution lies in the hands of the Steem Community.
