About This Class is a blockchain-based social network. While still in beta, the project attracted a significant user base and it grew fast.

Although on the surface it looks just like a "normal" social network, like reddit or twitter, under the hood things are way more complicated.

As a matter of fact, Steemit has quite of a learning curve. Not only because it's blockchain based (how data is saved and retrieved is completely different here) but also because it generates rewards for people posting, rewards paid in a cryptocurrency called STEEM. Which obviously rises all kind of questions:

  • where does the money comes from?
  • is this revenue predictable?
  • what is the difference between posting and curation rewards?
  • what are witnesses?
  • why do you have to vote for witnesses?
  • what is Delegated Proof of Stake?

and so on.

This class aims at answering to all these questions and, on top of that, it gives a few hints about how to stay safe and protect your account.

A certain familiarity with the blockchain technology is required. Watching my other course, Blockchain 101, could be beneficial.

Then I became a digital nomad, freelancing, working from coffee shops or coworking spaces and exploring new and exciting technologies.

So I've been involved wit...
