Steemit is primarily a content sharing platform where users can create text posts or comments on existing posts, upload videos, music, and photos, and vote on other users' content. Steemit's "upvote" system allows users to gain digital assets called STEEM tokens based on the popularity of their posts and comments. Their popularity is quantified by the number of "upvotes" each post or comment receives. New STEEM tokens are minted every day; most of which are distributed to users who receive higher "upvotes," though many go towards the costs of maintaining the platform.
Steemit is one of several websites run using the STEEM blockchain. Other sites include Busy.org and SteemPeak.com, which are websites similar to Steemit or Reddit.com; DTube, a video sharing platform similar to YouTube.
