Token Function
  • Unique properties of STEEM make it "smart" and "social" compared to other tokens, such as bitcoin and ether, and this stems from two new token features: 1) a pool of tokens dedicated to incentivizing content creation and curation (the "rewards pool") 2) a voting system that leverages the wisdom of the crowd to assess the value of content and distribute tokens to it. These two unique properties when combined are referred to as Proof-of-Brain, which is an entendre based on Proof-of-Work meant to emphasize the human work required to distribute tokens to community participants. Proof-of-Brain positions STEEM as a tool for building a perpetually growing community by aligning incentives between content websites and users.
Inflation Method9% annually, disinflating to .9% over 19 years; 75% to Proof of Brain; 10% to Stakers; 15% to Block Producers
