The Handpan Meets Steemit - Decentralised Open-Mic Nights

If you’ve read our post here at HPM titled, “The Two Million Dollar Bitcoin Handpan”, you’ll know that in addition to our love of Handpan, we’re also big cryptocurrency fans.  And while yes, should the whole thing crumble into dust in the coming months, as naysayers have been warning of for years, and our “Lambo” money is lost to the wind.  And we never reach that promised “Moon” - we might end up feeling a little sorry for ourselves - for now the ride is a tantalising one. And beyond the promise of untold riches, many great projects have formed in the wake of Bitcoin’s newly found fame. Borrowing from Bitcoin’s attempt to decentralise the monetary system - to make moves at the decentralisation of, well, just about everything. Including social media, which is where Steemit steps in.

And platforms such as Steemit, built on the “blockchain” technology popularised by Bitcoin, aim to distribute the power of the platform among the platforms users - while still providing the same functionality. And in the case of Steemit, distributing ad revenues earned, between contributing users, rather than further lining the pockets of the likes of Mark Zuckerberg.
