When it comes to art and music, what is the single most important thing missing on the Internet today? If you were to say "a decent income" you might have just struck the right chord with many artists out there.
The rise in price of Bitcoin has brought many new faces to the world of crypto. I have myself come to Steemit to see if there's potential here to promote the artists that have signed up to Artopium.com. Indeed, Steemit is working out to be an excellent opportunity. However, in my endeavor to bring my fellow artists over to the crypto world, I realized that despite it's lucrative lure, many of my friends and fellow artists are daunted by the complexity as well as the funny sounding lingo.
It's important to understand that there are three separate entities involved:
There's a lot of contention on Steemit lately about the use of upvote bots. At first, I personally stayed away from them as I found it distasteful to "pay myself" for my own content. That seemed antithetical to the nature of Steemit. Just like most people, I was under the impression that the primary intentions of Steem Inc. when making the Steem blockchain, was to enable bloggers and content creators to finally make the money they deserve. I was also under the impression that "free market forces" were the driving factor in determining content quality.

With an endless sea of easily obtainable material, the Artist (musician, printer, designer, etc.) can now create an amazing array of new conceptual works, all based on other's previous ideas. And this is a good thing for the muse is as old as art itself, right? But along with this new freedom comes the expense of content piracy.
Steemit has an entire culture One has to navigate if they hope to make Steemit work for them. What makes matters difficult for newcomers is that this culture is ever dynamic, constantly reshaping itself as it experiments with its own identity. Steemit can be a very confusing place for a newcomer, and even stranger for an artist. Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies are so staggeringly new, filled with crazy lingo no one has ever heard before, and filled with even crazier concepts. In this article I share with you some insights into Steemit culture and tips for getting the most of it as well.
The Supreme Court established the doctrine of the public forum in 1939, when it ruled in Hague v Congress of Industrial Organizations that government may not prohibit speech‐related activities such as demonstrations, leafleting and speaking in public areas traditionally provided for speech. Such places have historically served as essential vehicles of communication especially for groups who lack power or access to alternative channels of communication.
