<p>Hello. My name is Kyle Torpey, and I've been writing about Bitcoin (and related topics) since late 2013. I mostly write for Bitcoin or cryptocurrency focused media sites, but my work has also been featured in places like <a href="http://motherboard.vice.com/blog/why-satoshi-identity-doesnt-matter">VICE Motherboard</a>, <a href="http://www.businessinsider.com/the-600-million-altcoin-bubble-2014-2">Business Insider</a>, and <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DXeMdvFLKI">RT's Keiser Report</a>.</p>
<p>I've been interested in Steemit-esque platforms <a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2ggkgp/how_reddit_could_use_bitcoin_to_become_a/">for quite awhile now</a>, and this appears to be the first project to gain some traction in the area of attaching money to upvotes or likes. I'm still somewhat skeptical of the platform, but I've decided to learn more about it by trying it out.</p>
<h2>How I Became a Bitcoin Writer</h2>
<p>I first became interested in Bitcoin back in 2011 when Gawker <a href="http://gawker.com/the-underground-website-where-you-can-buy-any-drug-imag-30818160">published a story</a> about Silk Road. Initially, I thought anyone who thought they could get away with something like that on the Internet was an idiot, but I learned a lot about how Bitcoin works over the next year or two and realized I was the dumb one.</p>
<p>By late 2013, reading about Bitcoin was taking up a lot of my free time, and I wanted to figure out a way to turn my fascination with Bitcoin into a job. At the time, I was working in SEO (<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search_engine_optimization">search engine optimization</a>) and did a lot of copywriting, so I figured writing about Bitcoin would be my best bet. The <a href="https://letstalkbitcoin.com/it-wouldnt-matter-if-bitcoin-was-evil">first article</a> I ever wrote was for Let's Talk Bitcoin, and the second one was for the now-defuct <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahoo!_Voices">Yahoo! Contributors Network</a>.</p>
<p>The piece for Yahoo! was about the various "Bitcoin 2.0" platforms in development at the time such as Mastercoin and Protoshares. It did well on the /r/Bitcoin subreddit and was <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPmkeio3jJQ">eventually picked up</a> by Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert for the Keiser Report. I should note that I no longer hold the views I held back then in regards to altcoins and appcoins. I poked fun at myself for thinking these were possibly good ideas <a href="https://soundcloud.com/unconfirmed-transactions/ep-11-virginia-is-for-lovers-05172016">on a recent podcast</a>.</p>
<p>The popularity of the Bitcoin 2.0 article led to a number of job offers. I ended up joining CryptoCoinsNews as editor-in-chief. Later in the year, I moved to <a href="http://insidebitcoins.com/">Inside Bitcoins</a> as a writer and eventually took over as editor-in-chief there as well. These days, I mostly write for Bitcoin Magazine, CoinJournal, and CoinGecko.</p>
<p>As I mentioned above, I've been interested in a financialized version of Reddit for quite some time. I even <a href="https://github.com/dattnetwork/datt/blob/master/docs/general/bitmedia.md">shared some of my own ideas on the topic</a> with the <a href="https://www.yours.network/">Yours Network</a> team, who are building a platform similar to Steemit. Obviously, another reason for being here is selfish in nature; I'd like to see if Steemit can offer better pay than my current writing gigs.</p>
<h2>My Initial Thoughts on Steemit</h2>
<p>I'm not sure what to think of Steemit so far because I haven't done much research on it. I feel the best way to learn about it is to simply use the platform to post articles. I'll likely continue to post articles here as long as it makes financial sense for me to do so.</p>
<p>I will say that I'm turned off by the altcoin used in Steemit, and I don't plan to hold any STEEM. I will be moving funds into bitcoin or US dollars whenever possible. If the economics of STEEM work like other appcoins, then I don't have much hope for its long term success as a speculation. Daniel Krawisz has <a href="http://nakamotoinstitute.org/mempool/appcoins-are-snake-oil/">written a solid piece</a> on why appcoins (which STEEM appears to be) don't make much sense. I'm not sure why a new altcoin (and perhaps even a blockchain) is necessary for Steemit to function properly. But again, I must admit I haven't done much research on this particular project.</p>
<p>Anyway, I think that's all I have to share for now. I'm looking forward to testing out this platform over the next few weeks!</p>

Hey! I scrolled through your post quickly and noticed you haven't added any sort of verification that proves you are who you say you are. Even adding a comment on your twitter would probably be proof enough that this is in fact your account and not someone pretending to be you.

Thanks :)

Fancy seeing you here. The big thing about the altcoin is the mechanism for Steem power, which incentivizes holding.

I'll have to look deeper in to that aspect, but I will say I've see many mechanisms for incentivizing holding and other financial tricks over the years. They work until they don't ;)

Please consider writing a post about your findings as you learn more? =) It's really hard for me (and I bet for many others) to grasp the mechanics. I'm trying to learn as fast as I can but so far I'm mostly confused. I am (like many others) excited about the potential but I am also very cautious, since I'm not so knowledgeable in the topic, I might be seeing a mirage for all I know. It would be so very helpful to read an educated and focused analysis / critique about it! Oh and of course, welcome!! =)

I doubt anyone can say with certainty whether it'll work or not.  I will say this isn't something you could build on bitcoin. I doubt it's even possible on a sidechain due to the inflation rules.

What's the incentive to not dump? Holding STEEM seems risky (even riskier than holding bitcoin).

Not sure why people are comparing STEEM to BITCOIN.  Bitcoin is great for moving money around the world with very little cost to do so.  Steem does that as well + it gains value from its community adoption, which has the potential to be huge since everyone who joins has stake.  This fact should make you think twice about dumping because steem just added a whole new value chain to the mix.

What's the point of this platform if people don't cash out their rewards? The whole point to this thing was so that content creators can get paid for their contributions, thus I don't see any need to vilify people wanting to cash out, otherwise these numbers next to our post are no different than Reddit karma.

Is Steem another test network for Bitcoin and features Bitcoin can add? ;)

Good to have you on the platform and I look forward to the perspectives of an embedded & sharp skeptic.  Cheers!

IMO the problem on BTC is the economy behind and the scale issue with, pls correct me still 7 TPS per sec, right? Anyway ... this won't happen with the bitshares graphene toolkit on which STEEM is based. Well, i'd bet after u have done more research about…anyway - welcome on board and happy steeming.. (The most important value i'm currently noticing -  **people all over the world start getting crypto**) It's good for all cryptos so let's work all together …

this is not going to work very well with something like BTC, the whole point is to get rid of micro-payments.

I just upvoted you, and you  got an extra 1 cent - do you seriously think I am going to do a 1 cent BTC transaction?  when just doing a tx costs more than 1 cent? ;D

I love bitcoin but it is not a panacea for all...

it's oddly suspicious how your initial post got $10,000. I could probably write for 3 months and barely get $5,000 based on my current calculations. Who do you know who works within STEEM and is already a millionaire?

Part of the reason you could not do this on BTC is the transfer times and cost. It's take BTC at least 6 mins to validate a transaction, here is takes 3 secs. Running this platform on BTC would be like using carrier pigeons for it's post. Second it is free to send transactions on here. The amount of Steem Power you have determines how often you can transact. The cost for just posting BTC at these rates would be huge for the user.

Agreed. Quick block times and no trx fees alone make the technology much more compelling than any other chain IMO.

Payment channels enable what are essentially instant confirmations. The Lightning Network is a generalized network of payment channels that means anyone can transact with anyone else with instant confirmations. Fees are also basically zero (and could be negative in some cases). I suggest reading about the Lightning Network, which is being built on top of Bitcoin.

Thats nice, but this network is here now and working.  Plus the more uou put on top of BTC, the mor complex it becomes. Its already hard to make improvements on it now.

What do you think about the web 3.0 social media platform like AKASHA?
The way I see it, steemit doesn't have a chance. Unless, it upgrades.

@kyletorpey - welcome to the party.

Read the white paper... Once I saw the pieces come together, it made much more sense. The Steem Power long-term investment structure seems to be the most dynamic reason for what makes this platform different. The fact that ~98% of all STEEM was invested as SP right before the climb was what opened my eyes wide.

This post is going to earn you a pretty penny. I'd recommend converting most of it into SP ;)

Also -- [here's a recent analysis I put together for future success of the platform arguing that it solved the Prisoners Dilemma](https://steemit.com/steem/@blakemiles84/steem-solved-the-prisoners-dillemma)

Keep writing! Looking forward to more.

Hi Kyle, thanks for joining us on Steemit!

Having read some of your work and banter on Twitter, I am ecstatic that you came to check out the platform for yourself. You have my upvote. 

For sure, Steemit is a huge and risky experiment. It will be interesting to see how these kinds of platforms fare with and without native crytoassets. My personal bet is on the former, but only experimentation and evidence will tell. 

Welcome!

I think there may be value in something like Steemit. I'm just skeptical of the appcoin.

Kyle,

IMO, you cannot separate the native cryptoassets from the app. You cannot implement the economics of Steemit using Bitcoin today, and the economics are crucial to the key value proposition of Steemit, which is near-zero barriers to entry for mainstream users. 

The "Bitcoin argument" goes that eventually all these technologies will be available in an implementation which has the Bitcoin blockchain underneath. IMHO, this very well might be the case, but this argument ignores two basic facts of life from technology and startup world: (1) sometimes generalist platforms aren't the best solution, and you need specialist platforms; and (2) time to market and aggregating network effects matter (ask Facebook, Google, and Amazon and not Friendster, Excite, and Jet). 

Steemit so far has demonstrated both concepts pretty clearly in practice, and even if it fails tomorrow on post quality, there is now a clear path forward for such a system. 

There are other compelling reasons to want to have -- to use your term -- appcoins, such as, for example, disrupting the world of fundraising and private equity. We write quite extensively about that on the CoinFund blog.

Edit: For clarity.

Great to have you here Kyle, I like a lot of your earlier writings. However regarding your part of "appcoins"...  I don't think you want to use bitcoin for everything, just look at the traffic going around here. Probably would just cause more blocks are full malaise. Dedicated "alt"coins with a clear function could be (the only) way foreward (or amazing sidechains etc must really be on their way).

Good question! And one I'm not too sure about. My take is: if we talk about crypto than how else would they be able to create something which from the get go is able to reward their posters? And using crypto might prevent dependence on adds what might also be a good thing. Regarding blockchain; safety, openness and immutability plus the accompanying token? Looking forward to your insights!

Because all posts are on a blockchain. Why? Because first decentralized social network, no other way. 

Could bitcoin be used? Probably, via a sidechain, but somebody has to store that gigabytes of data and get paid for doing it.

Hi,
I'm Martin Raum and I am doing street marketing and and now I just started a self-help group to stop smoking using my blog. I was doing this already for BitShares which made DPOS and now for Steemit. Videos how I bring prosperity to the poor and of course the rich, too.

Steem is uber sick :-D

Have a good one!

WELCOME Kyle! Grats on trending! You deserve it! :D

BTW, should steemit let us steemers advertise using steem?

@lukestokes ·
Thank you for sharing the article on appcoins. I enjoyed that read and also think the authors of STEEM probably read it and took steps to avoid the same mistakes (based on my understanding of the white paper).

I'd really love to see your thoughts after reading the white paper. Do those same criticisms apply, in your opinion? Also, as you're diving into the economics of it, what do you think of the Steem Interest rate? Right now, the <a href="https://steemit.com/economics/@lukestokes/ned-s-making-usd700k-every-week-is-the-steem-power-interest-rate-too-high">largest whales are making $700k+ a week</a>. I don't see how that can be sustainable long term.

>I will say that I'm turned off by the altcoin used in Steemit, and I don't plan to hold any STEEM. I will be moving funds into bitcoin or US dollars whenever possible. If the economics of STEEM work like other appcoins, then I don't have much hope for its long term success as a speculation.

I think for the long term STEEMIT great for use as an investment, because every day there are always new members who sign up to join in community steemit. This is just my opinion @kyletorpey

this does nothing to address "the whole point is to get rid of micro-payments."

no one wants to pay to do something (micropayments), at the very least they do not want it to cost money (the cause with Twitter or Facebook), at the very best they get some return (Steem).

i'm sure there are many great use cases for lightning networks, micropayments for content and curation of it are likely not one of them.

i will go out on a limb here and claim that micro payments are completely uninteresting to sentient beings, however great for computer programs needing to do resource allocation in decentralized networks which need to function like agoric computational systems.

Had a vision of you doing music videos lipsyncing eminem songs but they look epic cool at know toronto locations with great views and scenery. The song 'how come' comes to mind but with other people on the track means you'll need someone to do those parts to complete the video.

Keep your eye on Voxels (VOX), it's the next big thing.  Price is right, meaning almost free at this time.  A speculator's dream considering the tech is close to emerging and becoming ubiquitous.

Welcome Kyle!  I'm following you and will be interested to see what you think about Steemit and its financial mechanisms.
The way you turned your fascination with bitcoin into a job is very inspiring.

>I'd like to see if Steemit can offer better pay than my current writing gigs.

I'd love to know the answer to that question too.

Welcome to Steem!
Steem is not a regular alt-coin, it is a decentralized blockchain-based social platform with an economic system built-in that rewards all participants.

I was looking for an introduce yourself post to use as an example to a wannabe steemian when i stumbled on this your article.
What piqued me is that you're a writer with interest in crypto currency. 
I'm thinking of starting out a writing career in the crypto currency sector. 
I'll closely follow you and watch how you do things so as to learn.
