Was STEEM your 'gateway drug' into crypto?


The basic mantra of Bitcoin maximalists is usually, that everything besides BTC are shitcoins, not worthy of anything.

While I do see Bitcoin as a great store of value, this world-view of nothing besides it matters is very short-sided, in my opinion.

Altcoins actually drive quite a lot of value to BTC, by providing use-cases and entry points into the whole crypto-sphere.

And in that sense, I believe STEEM has driven quite a lot of value, bringing hundred of thousands into contact with blockchain & crypto.

Hence this poll is there to see, how many of you got hooked into the whole crypto-sphere, because of Steem (or maybe not)

Please vote via dpoll!

If you'd like to support this poll, feel free to resteem it.

Thanks,
Wolf

Started with Bitcoin, cause I head about this cool fancy internet money was making people bank. Got in low, sold high, made a nice profit.

Then, the programmer in me found Ethereum and fell in love. A blockchain... WITH CODE?!?!?! I sunk my profits into CryptoKitties and in the end broke even, luckily.

I had a brief period where I heavy diversified. I invested in BTC, ETH, LTC, SALT ( made a legit nice profit from that one, got out before it went into the shitter ), etc.

While perusing different cryptos to invest into, I stumbled upon Steem. Never before had any other coin got me so interested, so quickly. I think I was only browsing here for less than 3 days before I went & told all my family + friends about it. The social aspect is what got me most interested!

Steem may have not been my "first" love, but it is differently my strongest ;^)

Do you love Steem?
-Yes.
-Worshiping it.
-You can not understand my love about it.

I wonder that. Don't you have any other cryptos?
Isn't it easier to mine Steem as miner/witness?
Don't you think the bigger capital manipulate the platform?
Aren't they use people's inferior complexity?(I will slap you if don't have more than me) =)
(A social platform where people are humiliated)

Please Don't take this comment wrong.(May be a little humorous)

I have been into crypto long before Steem was ever a thought. Steem was my first entry into social media tokens. So i give them a yes and no.

it is kinda hard to answer because i guess most heard about crypto and knew something about it when they got to steem.

I knew about btc and some other coins, but steem was my IN for crypto. it was my first coin that i owned. from steem i got to my first btc (not really more like satoshis).

also i am still mostly Steem in crypto. i use it every day. don't have a lot of money to invest in crypto (i did throw some small amount to btc) and i don't have the time to daily trade that small amounts, so steem looks logical choice.

I knew about Bitcoin and I knew I wanted some, I also knew I had missed the phase where people could just mine it. So, Steem gave me a way to learn and get involved as well as more time to understand.

Due to my time on Steem I bought my first Bitcoin at $695 in November of 2016
