Steem is a blockchain built on the Proof of Brain concept. The basic idea is that you post content, if community appreciate your work they vote it. A vote allocates the receiver a portion of the daily minted Steem tokens, proportional to the weight of Steem tokens the voter has reserved as Steem power.

Since its inception, tens of millions of dollars have been rewarded to content creators. The most common form of content on Steem is blog; there are video, audio and gaming content as well.

Steemit is the most popular interface to the Steem blockchain. Busy, Steem Peak, Wordpress's Steem Press plugin as well as mobile apps such as Esteem and Parkito are popular as well.
