Damn, what's up with Steemit? I've never been, but I thought they were legit? Can anyone weigh in on what that site is all about? I'm curious.

They're supposedly decentralized and they tie voting to a Steem currency. So if you get a lot of upvotes you make money. But they require a phone number to sign up and once you give it up, you can't create another account with the name #. So a ton of people are unable to sign up and use the damn thing.

Also someone built dtube on steem, a legit YouTube alternative.

Thanks, now I need to check out dtube.

Check out BitChute too. I heard Steem is censoring the conspiracy tag, so DTube might end up somewhat censored as well.

Thanks, no fucking shit. Wow that went downhill so quick.
