Steemit

Steemit gives users monetary rewards for any meaningful contribution to the platform. Of these contributions the most important are:

  • Creating or posting content which the other users consider valuable (like)
  • Finding valuable content and upvoting it

The mechanism is designed so that the users decide what is valuable and who the rewards go to. Each user has a certain voting-power, which determines how much weight the vote has. More voting-power can be acquired by earning rewards or by purchasing it. There are also many other ways to contribute to the platform and earn rewards, but which are more technical. More information can be found on https://steem.io .

Rewards are payed in a dollar-equivalent currency, which can be converted to any other currency. The currency can be easily used inside the steem-network by sending it directly to another user anywhere in the world. Users are payed interest if they invest the earned rewards in the platform.

The Steemit -site is a front-end to the steem-blockchain. This means no content is censored, and the blockchain (all contents and history) can be accessed from any other current or future front-end. Anyone can freely create an app or frontend to the blockchain, but Steemit is the first and most complete one.

Steemit requires no log-in for consuming content, but for posting, commenting and recieving rewards a username is needed. At the moment one can use a Reddit or Facebook profile to get started. Each new user gets 3$ to get started.

Litecoin

Litecoin is a peer-to-peer Internet currency that enables instant payments to anyone in the world. It differs from its parent Small Bitcoin iconBitcoin in that can be efficiently mined with consumer-grade hardware. Litecoin provides faster confirmations (targeted at every 2.5 minutes on average) and uses memory-hard, scrypt-based mining to target the CPUs and GPUs most people already have. The Litecoin network is scheduled to produce four times as many currency units as Bitcoin.

One of the aims of Litecoin was to provide a mining algorithm that could run at the same time, on the same hardware used to mine bitcoins. With the rise of specialized ASICs for Bitcoin, Litecoin continues to satisify these goals. It is unlikely for FPGA or ASIC mining to take over Litecoin until the currency is widely used.
