How to earn income from Steemit – Pt 2.  The Three Steemit Currency units

The three units are Steem, Steem Power, and Steem Dollars.

Steem: Steem are units that are bought and sold for actual money on open markets (exchanges). You can trade them as you would bitcoin. However,  you don’t want to hold on to these for too long because more Steem Units are created every single day. If you hold onto Steem Units for a long time, they will become diluted and lose value.

Steem Power: Owning Steem Power Units is essentially like making a long term investment in the currency because you can’t sell Steem Power Units for 2 years. But there are a lot of good reasons to have Steem Power. By keeping your currency as Steem Power Units, you will be able to make considerably more money in the long run because you essentially have ownership in the network. As the network grows, so will your piece of the pie. And you’ll be heavily rewarded along the way. The way things are set up now, 90% of the new Steem Currency that is generated every single day is distributed to the people who already hold Steem Power Units in the form of additional Steem Units. (The other 10% goes to content creators and curators). Half of the pay you receive for your content will be in Steem Power Units.

Another advantage of Steem Power is the more  Steem Power Units you have, the more your curation vote will count. You will have more influence on the site and you will also get paid more for upvoting other people’s work. (When you upvote someone’s work, they will get paid more as well.)

Steem Dollars are the price-stable currency tokens. There are so many possibilities with SD. You can spend these in the virtual economy which is soon to come, you can hold them and accumulate a 10% return, or you can sell or transfer them into Steem, Bitcoin, or other currencies. Like the turbine that’s spun by steam power in a conventional steam power plant, SD bridge the raw power of Steemit with the real world applications of a price stable currency.

How to earn income from Steemit – Pt 3. The Wallet

Once your account is up and running you will have both your own blog and your own wallet.  You can use your steemit wallet to send steem to or to convert your steem to steem power.
