    "With the cryptocurrency boom, Steem seems like an interesting proposition. I particularly like the fact that Steem is mined by writing as opposed to the use of hardware, which removes the initial investment that is needed with other cryptocurrencies which require purchasing an inflated priced graphics card."

    "Overall, this seems like a solid way to keep track of finances and I do like how the website seems to be user-friendly for anyone wanting to know more about the program. That being said, my one suggestion would be to add certified reviews from users that way an interested person can get an idea of what to expect. "
