NOT QUITE WHAT IT STEEMED
Steemit appeared set to become the next big thing in 2016, but sadly from mid 2018 on, it just gradually devolved into a steeming pile of bullshit. www.steemit.com
Steemit is a pretty huge subject, so I’ll leave the tech side of it for geeks to endlessly go on about. Here is what my Steemit page has on it:

WAS STEEMIT ALL JUST A CIA PSYOP?
EVENTUALLY I WAS SEEING SO MUCH DODGY SHIT GOING ON WITH STEEMIT IT BOGGLED MY MIND
Sadly things all went horribly wrong and my three year experiment in blockchain based social media lead to me think that the whole thing was a CIA psyop right from the start.
Some “conspiracy theorist” I turned out to be – I got suckered bigtime…
Never mind, I learned a lot, it really helped my blogging, I made some friends, and I even made some actual money for the first two years. But in order to fit into the scene I turned a blind eye to a bunch of stuff that was glaringly obvious really. Especially with the benefit of hindsight…
At the time of writing, Steemit is still a fully functioning website, but my own belief in it is over. I still keep an eye on it, but I’m not really into it anymore, and am mainly trying to work out what the scams are actually achieving.
For two years I was obsessed with Steemit, I had four accounts, did over 350 full length blog posts and many thousands of comments, had nearly 3000 followers, and earned thousands of dollars in payouts. But by late 2018 I could see that it was not what it seemed and we had been played like a fiddle.
This is all just guesswork and may prove to be wrong as the saga unfolds, but at the start of 2019 these were my speculations of what may be going on:
I strongly suspect Steemit was originally set up by the CIA, just like Fakebook was, and that Dan Larimer’s father Stan works for the CIA. And like the CIA, Steemit’s headquarters are in Langley Virginia.
Dan is most likely not really a tech genius but is just a mid level computer geek with all the usual geek mental development issues. Just like Suckerberg.
And Dan is really only a front man for a far more talented CIA development team, he was chosen because of his father and because he is geek enough to be credible in that role.
Ned was not really part of the initial set up. He was chosen to be a frontman for Steemit (his appearance was his main selling point) but ultimately he was always destined to be a public failure. Like Suckerberg, Ned is just a fall guy.
Steemit was never meant to become the next Fakebook, but was mainly set up to be a test site for a bunch of psyops.
Because there are several operatives playing some of the key accounts, sometimes they swap roles and are clearly not the same person.
Sometimes totally fake posts are actively promoted by biggest accounts. And the propaganda site Wikileaks is relentlessly promoted as a credible source. That is pretty common online, but on Steemit it is by bloggers purporting to be serious conspiracy researchers, while the whole Julian Assange/Wikileaks psyop is obvious bollocks to anyone who bothers to check.
The main accounts all have insider connections and are working various voting scams. For example, one obviously dodgy account known as “Haejin” (the wealthiest account on Steemit) constantly drains out reward pool money.
In the pre alpha days of Steemit the insiders set up a bunch of accounts. One of them was called “Bernie Sanders”. There are thousands of fake accounts on Steemit, but the Bernie Sanders account and its 200+ bots seems to dominate them all, and it has clearly shifted its underlying agenda several times – most notably from initially encouraging new users, to later trying to drive all real (non-bot) accounts off the platform. The “Bernie Sanders” account has also become ever more aggressive and constantly has fake arguments with other fake accounts over subjects such as vaccinations (one day it suddenly became militantly pro-vax).
“The head flaggot is a pig demon who walks erect, seizing violators and squeezing the shit out of them, which he grinds into their mouths and noses until they suffocate”
THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT TYPES OF FAKE ACCOUNTS ON STEEMIT
The most obvious ones are the bots – there are upvote bots, downvote bots, bots to alert other bots – the place is crawling with bots – bots even vote, comment, and have wars with each other. It is estimated that more than half the accounts on Steemit are bots
The second type of fake accounts are more cunning. They are fronted by actors who produce videos, post photos of themselves, and appear to be constantly posting and commenting. What is a typical fake account like? – often they are popular, with over 5000 followers, they have a high rep – over 70, they have quite a lot of $ in their wallet – over $20k, they commonly started out pretty early – often in June or July 2016 (prior to the big Jeff Berwick PR push in August), and they tend to post a lot. Not entertaining or fun content, but stuff about cryptos, geek stuff, Steemit, politics, news. Some mid level conspiracies, but nothing too deep.
They tend to be reasonably presentable – better looking than you might expect for geeks who do nothing but write Steemit posts and do computer stuff. Rather than looking like fat geeks, they look like male (and sometimes female) models. Maybe because they are…
Their lives make no sense – supposedly they lead active lives doing all sorts of stuff, but somehow manage to constantly monitor everything that is happening on Steemit – they never change their opinions or interests, but just keep on constantly doing posts, replying to comments, engaging in chat room discussions. But the really big one: unlike real people, after two years they don’t burn out.
Everyone who uses Steemit for more than two years tends to burn out – they become disillusioned, they miss all their friends who have quit, they miss getting payouts, and they have to admit they were deliberately turning a blind eye to all the bullshit.
They are going backwards and they know it. But the fake accounts never get to that point – they keep on saying the same stuff, the same amount of times, day in and day out. They never acknowledge that the Steemit platform is collapsing around them.
These fake accounts are the PR face of Steemit – promoting the platform, and promoting cryptos. Without let up. Any realistic criticism for cryptos is ignored. They get hundreds of comments on their posts. Boring meaningless messages of support from accounts with no money or posting history. Bots.
I’d say the main aim of Steemit (along with promoting cryptos and scamming a lot of money) was always to develop AI in social media.
To start off with, along with all the fake witnesses, a large number of the prominent accounts were fake – some very obviously. A good example was @sweetsssj – which was always clearly a production team with at least a model, a photographer, a writer, several on site assistants, an organizer and an investor. She earned over $1000 per post, and churned them out like clockwork. One person did point this out but was immediately flagged off the platform, so the rest of us shut our faces.
A less obvious fake account is the often entertaining and informative shill Jeff Berwick – he is real but he has a big team behind him. Another main agenda of Steemit was to promote cryptos. He also promotes the idea of a global financial meltdown (the global warming of economics?)
So it was always clear that there were a lot of fake accounts, but what was less obvious to begin with was that some of them were not human at all. They were AI accounts.
An account called “@bloom” was a good example of an early very low level AI account – It never posted anything and just flagged posts where the balance to keep the post flagged could be assisted with extra input from its 11,000sp wallet
The AI accounts developed rapidly until they could comment and actually pass for real if you didn’t look too closely. But what gave them away apart from being humourless morons is that they endlessly aim to create controversy and disagreement.
A more advanced example of an AI account designed to create controversy was @anarchyhasnogods – this is what a primitive AI argument might look like – but it does get a bit repetitive – https://steemit.com/steemstem/@anarchyhasnogods/man-kidnaps-and-strangles-women-telling-her-he-is-going-to-kill-her-all-for-sexual-gratification-is-given-stern-warning-by-judge
They appear to have humans overseeing them and creating some posts and comments, but leaving the AI part of the persona to trawl though all the posts making comments.
Part of why Steemit never really grew or developed as a site after 2017 is because that was not the aim. The aim was to develop the AI side of it until it got to the point where a huge portion of the accounts are AI.
Eventually that side of things was pushed too far and more cracks started to show. The flagging looked ridiculous, the comments could bore a rock to death, and the site ran worse by the day.
Once an AI account starts flagging your account, it’s screwed. And a large number of real Steemit users have been driven off the platform using flagging. Leaving mostly AI accounts.
Why on earth did I keep on using it? – Because I was addicted, and wanted to still be part of an amazing site again like it was in 2017, so for months I put off admitting to myself that it was all over.
WHAT IS THE REAL PURPOSE OF CRYPTOS?
Cryptos, starting with Bitcoin, appear to be a giant scam, and yet another a zionist plot – aiming towards a one world currency. Probably they will be fine tuned and manipulated up and down for years, creating insider profits until the timing is right to crash the global economy starting with America, and force in a one world currency. Problem, reaction, solution.
But I’m not saying to avoid cryptos – I’ve made some good profits on cryptos and although I think they are totally corrupt, I still think if you are aware of that, and take profits when you can, they are worth playing. Having already done that, I can’t really lose – if they become worthless overnight, at this point I’m still ahead. And I will happily accept payments in cryptos – that side of things works fine.
