What is Steem Power?

Steem power is a unique system that is used to inspire long term growth and commitment. The cryptocurrency world is known for investors jumping from one cryptocurrency to another depending on the trend of the moment. Bitcoin is perhaps the most well-known cryptocurrency.

While Bitcoin has maintained its value, many cryptocurrencies fluctuate wildly. Steem power encourages long term commitment by allocating 9 Steem to Steem power for every Steem it creates. This helps create a community of investors that will be around for the long term. Steem power is required for voting on content on the Steem platform. You will see references to Steem whales which are users who have acquired a large amount of Steem power and have therefore gained huge influence over the Steem platform. Getting an upvote or a comment from a Steem whale can have a huge effect on your earnings. This system encourages good content creation as well as platform participation.
