A front page for the second part of my comic about a shy surveillance officer in the British equivalent of NSA. Here he is portrayed in a classic coldwar spy kind of way.
Read it here:
@artsyhonker @luka - Yes, there is of course a risk, but considering that you do not get anything from being here or Diaspora or Facebook or Twitter it is still a fair risk. Especially when making CC content like me.
Here are some Canadian homesteader that has bought grocery for steem. they just take out the money imminently.
@artsyhonker @luka - the generation is simple inflation. The money is created and then distributed - like that Facebook for many years did not earn any money, the network is currently only giving value because of the promising technology and the promising network. One of the plans in the future is to burn all the revenue that could come from advertising. That way there would be fewer coins and they would be more valuable. But right now there is no ads.
.... but that can change with the prize of the coin.
But see it this way. You have not done anything that differs from other social networks and you have not invested any money.
As for the blockchain thing.
what is your worries, Kathryn?
When you have an account you also have a wallet - you need to be careful with the very long password - write it on paper and keep it secure - but that is about that with security.
There is income - but it does of course depend on how much you earn on your posts... and that can be pretty little in the begining. But I can promote you a bit.
Steemit is an experiment and it can go up and down and it can do that many times a year. No one knows of course. I have earned more than 20.000$ that I have converted to Danish Crowns so that is secure - right now I have about 50.000$ in values on the Steem network. you can see it here:
the author of one of my favorite webcomics just recommended mine and it feels so weird and fluffy 🙈 🌺
SO! if you haven't read it yet, i urge you to check out Skulls and Coins! a comic that is as cute as it is eerie, and i love it! https://tapas.io/series/SkullsandCoin
@artsyhonker - I sometimes use a post that I have made on Diaspora and build from that, but I have not done that much blogging before.
You are free to use your own copyrighted material - the place is a liberal/Libertarian experiment and it does not have many rules. As in most social networks there is the henhouse justice, but it is not really something I have had a problem with and I seldom see it.
A psalm series sounds good! - if you have a Facebook -page you can use that to get an account.
@artsyhonker - certainly, it is. Everybody that can bring some quality blogging will be more than welcome. As money is involved there is begging, spamming and other bad things, but it does actually work surprisingly well.
Go for it - and write me if you need advice.
