Stupid question thread is well overdue for Steem....

But a friend of mine asked me to explain Steem to him....

So I go....
"If you post something good (0.01% chance) or vote for something good  (0.001% chance) or steemed it  (0.0001% chance) makes you are witness... you will be paid some steem.
For every 1 steem you get, steemit will get 0.75*9 steems (vested).

????
They will get 6.75 Steem for any and every steem ever created...for being fast (7 days) enough mining and having sweat equity coding this...sorry sweet equity?"

?
I am stupid enough, so I do not know...is it so fast/sweet?

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

"dollar value" meaning rewards have a value that can be easily denominated in dollars (but that can also be denominated in any currency or commodity).  :)

That should be mentioned on the white-paper conclusion also !
(the "average Joe" will be glad)

Hi @all – the Steem Whitepaper is now pinned in the Steem Slack (https://steem.herokuapp.com).  Come join us and check it out ☺

Within Steem, individuals earn real rewards online that are
directly correlated to their contributions. Their rewards will have dollar value due to the
market price discovery and liquidity of Steem, and the people who hold Steem will have
more exclusive earning powers than those who do not.


I would prefer the rewards are not restricted to dollar value!
There should be more options... To choose for example rewards in GOLD value or BTC or whatever ... Whatever the customer wants!

"The customer is always right"

...and they are not only typical Americans! We want to sell our product worldwide (?)...Are we?

PS what happens with Steem if in 5 years the dollar fails? Why should a great project/experiment depends on dollar future/success ?
