Modern Way Of Earning Via Content Production

Games

Ever wondered what your new post could possibly fetch you some rewards? There might just be some good news coming your way with Steemit redefining social media norms by helping people build a living and thrive in the social economy. It’s a community where users are rewarded for their sharing’s and gain attention.

Steemit is just among many other websites like Busy.org, Utopian.io that is powered by STEEM blockchain and the STEEM cryptocurrency. Its mechanism is the content is written and read to the STEEM block chain that stores the media in an immutable blockchain ledger and later rewards the users for their contributions via the digital tokens named STEEM. The company regularly mints in new STEEM token and then adds them up to a community’s reward pool. The awarding is done based on the user contribution and votes being received. One perk of owning many tokens as STEEM power is that it gives you the authority to decide the major chunk distribution of the reward pool. So unlike the other social media platforms where companies reap value for their shareholders, here the users are centred and are provided the benefits and rewards that they deserve for their valuable contribution that gains a lot of attention.

Grab rewards:

  • Posting Content or Media: One can earn digital token via sharing their posts and earning up votes from the community members which decides the share of the rewards pool to be awarded.
  • Voting and Curating: Here, if you discover a post with a good content which you up vote before it becomes popular among the community, you earn the curators reward that will be dependent on the amount of STEEM power possessed.
  • Purchasing: Another option is by directly purchasing the STEEM dollar tokens or STEEM via the wallet by methods of bitcoin, ether or BitShares token. They may also be available be from other markets in the field.
  • Vesting: Once your STEEM token powers the STEEM power up to a certain aspect, you will be credited with a small amount of additional token for holding.

Here the network community continuously invests new digital token for rewarding the content providers and the curators. As mentioned some share of the newly created tokens are directly transferred to the users for their activity of posting, commenting and voting. Rest of the share is distributed among the holders of the STEEM Power and witnesses who are the backbone of the block chain.

Methodology:

Hence, STEEM is basically a point system. As it’s a point system being based on block chain, the points being credited can be traded on the market as tokens. Users will be able to buy and sell these tokens and many of the users wait in anticipation of increased purchasing power for different STEEM related services. When perceived, it can be considered as a game for grabbing more views and votes on the platform where users compete by their content and thereby adding value to the platform. The tokens being grabbed by the users have market value and can be used for trading. An analogy that can be taken is obtaining a limited reward or currency by playing a video game. So if the rewards are transferable among users they can be either sold or bought on the game market.

Another aspect of the game is that it isn’t a getting rich schemed game. It may seem easy to post content and get it viral quickly to earn a ton of rewards from the total share. It is to be kept in mind that it isn’t the story for most of the users. When looked on the list of the most popular authors on the website, it has to be understood that it requires enormous dedication, time spending, network building, follower investment, and building connections and having a reputation for high-quality content. Being realistic in terms of the expectations from the website without having high hopes when initially starting out. It is imperative to work on building a network that gives you following and have a good reputation for producing high-quality content.

Another perk of the website is having Smart Media Token which is a native digital asset on the STEEM block chain to be launched quickly by the users to help them monetize their online content and generate incentives to encourage a desired user outcome or behavior. Just like the Ethereum’s ERC -20 Tokens but with a certain built-in proof of brain properties and the token distribution and reward system is designed specifically for this digital content businesses.

Interface and Applications:

  • Home: It is like the customized news feed for the user whose accounts they follow.
  • New: The posts are sorted by the time they are posted in ascending order.
  • Hot: It displays the popular posts at the current moment.
  • Promoted: Users can boost their views and votes by using the STEEM dollar payments that are listed higher in the hierarchy.
  • Trending: It displays the posts that have garnered maximum amount of votes and has been credited recently.

A user can post at any instant with the posts having a time lapse of not less than 5 minutes. It shall be understood that the community may not appreciate the user posting content way too frequently, so it is necessary not to overwhelm the followers with an abundance of content. The posts are limited to 64,000 characters that include formatting. If you are willing to write long posts or blogs then do consider that users may lose interest that eventually affects the count of up votes and ultimately the rewards being received.

Steemit.com allows different provisions for the users to use their STEEM and SBD tokens that ease out the transactions out for users looking for developing their skills such as:

  • Power up to STEEM Power
  • Withdrawing for an exchange and trade it for BTC or any other digital token service.
  • Purchase items via third-party stores accepting STEEM token payments or accepting SBD digital tokens.
  • Exchange for SBD or STEEM via your wallet or use STEEM exchange in the internal market.

Fortnite, the best game of the year

Games

Currently, one of the means of entertainment among young people are video games, which are game systems where a player can control one or several characters in order to meet a specific goal which represents the challenge to complete. These games also allow several people to interact in the same game environment from anywhere in the world, thus being considered as a means of social interaction.

These games are often very popular, especially in the population of young boys, so they represent one of the most profitable markets today. It is for this reason, that video games have evolved from their beginnings, where they were simple movements and graphics, to the present, where the games have more advanced graphics that can imitate very well the real movement of a person or object.

Because of this popularity around the world it is very easy to find programmers who are responsible for creating video games every day, which improve as the years go by. Each new game represents a challenge that beginners and professionals accept with pleasure, so they can spend days without leaving their game consoles to complete the story that develops in the universe of the game.

In this sense, there is a game currently that has won the approval of players around the world, said game called Fortnite is one of the most popular video games among young people, because this, apart from being free, it provides several game modes that make it a very entertaining experience that is always being updated.

This game was launched in the year 2017 by the company Epic Games and is available for Windows platforms, macOS, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for free. Although its launch was in 2017, it was not until 2018 that the game began to be known internationally, becoming a global trend in social networks, which led it to be one of the best games so far this year.

It should be noted that, since its launch, this game has received numerous awards nominations related to video games and prizes related to popularity among young people throughout the world. Of these nominations has received prizes mainly in this year, highlighting the Teen Choice Awards.

What’s the game about

Fortnite is a game of interaction, this is, a system that works as a multiplayer game in which a lot of people from different parts of the world come together in the same section of game where s and forms a land where all players appear and interact the objective of the game is based on two different modalities provided by the system.

Then, in the world where the game is developed, players have the possibility to collect construction materials (wood, brick and steel) which are used to create strengths in order to defend themselves while the game is being played. The main feature of these strengths is that they can be updated in a way that provides more security to the player.

In this sense, there are different types of pieces with which you can create the strengths of each player among which are:

  • Walls
  • Floors
  • Stairs
  • Windows
  • Doors

Modalities of game

There are two game modes in Fortnite which differ mainly in the objective that you want to complete in the game. These modalities are: Fortnite: Save the World and Fortnite: Battle Royale.

The first game mode (Fortnite: Save the World) consists of a game of few people, usually four, who cooperate in order to complete several missions distributed throughout the territory. The story of this game mode consists of the existence of creatures called “husks” which behave like zombies, then, the players act as the heroes of the territory and have the goal of saving as many people as possible, building shelters to throughout the territory and stopping the spread of these creatures.

The second method of play (Fortnite: Battle Royale) represents the most popular game mode today, since it takes place on an island with a finite territory, where approximately 100 players face each other at the same time, eliminating each other little by little, in order that only one player or a group of players survive. In this sense, it can be played individually or collectively.

The players start without any resource or weapon, so it is necessary to go through the space in which the game is developed to obtain weapons and sufficient resources to survive before the other players. The special feature of this game mode is that the terrain in which it develops is reduced every certain period of time, which encourages players to get closer and closer, forcing them to face each other constantly.

How to update your character

In Fortnite each player can create an avatar that has specific qualities that will depend on the taste of home player. In this sense, each player has personal tools that can be updated to improve the abilities of the avatar.

However, to achieve this it is necessary to have the so-called V-Bucks, which represent the currency with which the game is handled internally. This coin is obtained from the game play game Save the World, and can be used when you are in the second game mode. With this coin you can buy both cosmetic items, to decorate the avatar, and battle items, to improve the game skills of that avatar.

It is for this reason that the save the world mode is being updated so that the only way to enter that game mode is to buy a kind of access that allows the player to enter this world a win V-Block. This is the way in which the creative company of the game manages to obtain gains of the popularity of the same one.

In this sense, updates to the avatar in the game are difficult to obtain if you do not buy access to the game mode of saving the world, although it should be noted that the Battle Royale mode is still completely free.
