Why TokenBB Chose The Steem Blockchain

in ssmdb •  5 months ago


So what's the big deal with the Steem blockchain? Why, even though it's currently ranked in the top 30 on CMC, hundreds of developers are choosing it to build their dApps?

We can't speak for everybody but we will share why we chose Steem and why we believe it is currently THE best blockchain to build dApps on as well as why we believe it's the most undervalued cryptocurrency in the space.

NB: Interested in TokenBB? Subscribe to our mailing list to join the launch of Alpha!

Reason #1: Fast and Free

Steem operates under a freemium model and it's incredibly fast (thanks to the increasingly popular DPOS system). One major hurdle of adoption of blockchain is asking users to pay fees. Users don't like to pay fees to use ANY application, even if they are on the blockchain.

Reason #2: Community

Not only do you save time by leveraging the Steem blockchain instead of building your own chain but you are able to bootstrap a user base off of Steem’s pre-existing user base, possibly the largest in the space.

Reason #3: Built for the Web

You don't have to deal with private keys (thanks to SteemConnect ) nor do you have to know C++ or Solidity to create smart contracts. Just create your interface and focus on having people using it.

Reason #4: Built-in Monetization

Developers and engineers love building cool stuff but often, the development comes to a halt when there is a need to put bread on the table. On the Steem blockchain, any dApps that generate rewards can have an arbitrary reward going to the people who developed.

Reason #5: Smart Media Tokens(SMTs)

Smart Media Tokens are a token-launching protocol similar to ERC20s on Ethereum, but with all the state-of-the-properties enabled by the Steem blockchain. SMTs enable anyone to launch their own STEEM-like token with customizable features including Founders Tokens, Token Emission Rates, Proof-of-Brain, ICO Smart Contracts, and more.

The release date of SMTs is March 24th 2019...which make it the perfect time to start building your dApp and invest in Steem.

Why Invest in Steem?

This isn't financial advice and this is only our informed opinion. Remember what the launch of ERC-20 tokens did to the price of ETH? The price went up 15X within the next few months. With SMTs enabling dApps to launch an ICO, bootstrap their own economy and with Steem becoming the pair between all of them...add to this mix the social aspect of Steem and I woudn't be surprised to see history repeated.


Some investors are skiddish about Steem based on what it was 2 years ago. We've heard people mention 100% inflation rate and other things that have been dealt with ages ago. Much has changed since then and you would greatly benefit from reading this post about Steem's history and what changed since it's launch.


There is no doubt in our minds that Steem is the most undervalued cryptocurrency right now. With all it has to offer the the size of it's community, it should be in the top 10. There hasn't been a better time to invest in Steem. The question is you are ready to ride the wave upward from here.

Ive been here for two years now and been saying this is undervalued since then. Now more so then ever.....Really hard to see why others are not realizing this.

Great post and thanks for the support of this community.


Cryptos with a working product actually have a disadvantage from those that don't


What can make you said that ??


Simplemente porque están dormidos...

Excellent points made in this post. There is a lot going for the STEEM blockchain that is not taking place elsewhere.

Also, when you look at some of the problems other blockchains are experiencing, STEEM does not have that. Even the distribution breakdown, which many on here are often pointing to as a problem is not. I just put up a post that shows how the distribution is completely shifting.

This will only make STEEM stronger as we proceed forward. With HF20 giving onboarding capabilities to the apps, we should see an explosion over the next 6 months in accounts signed up and participation rates.

TOKENBB is going to be one of the apps that helps to drive people to this blockchain.


this ys the best..


waooo very good information thank you. Good post


Photo is beautiful, but random


Completely 100% accurate and true.




Hello. How are you doing today.


I love the part where the smt lunch will come up by 2019.


I agree and thougt your reply was cool. Have a great week.




Steem has a tremendously passionate community around it and the technology is REAL.


muy bien,es fantastico.


Excellent content :) thanks for this


Increible el funcionamiento

I'll keep an eyes on it.

Excellent explanation.
A different & creative way to earn steem using social media platform.
Who thought ever that one can earn cryptocurrencies by posting and curating articles.
We all can hope one day that steem value will be at its best in cryptocurrencies market.


I agree to your delivered response to the post. Very nice.

Usually we can find cases that would have a great chance of success if they were looking for a monetization.
The popularity of Steemit and greater social propagation would be one of the alternatives to create a quality network that feeds back on itself.

Definitely agree that Steem is undervalued. Well written and succinct. Glad you guys are building on Steem.

Steem is really undervalued right now, the power of the steem blockchain is just starting to be discovered!

You guys make some great points regarding Steem with this post. It's no wonder that you chose Steem for this project.

We are so high!!! To the top.

With the speed of the steem blockchain and it is free you would be crazy to go anywhere else in my opinion.

Wow, what an amazing concept! Just found token bb, and I'm quite impressed! Anything utilizing the steem chain is a win-win :)

This is great to read guys and yea, many share your opinion. this is just the tip of the #steemberg.

I can't predict the future guys, but next time you feel like partying, ordering junkfood or wasting your money otherwise, buy some steem coins. They only cost a dollar per coin.

Same as TokenBB I think Steem is undervalued. It's the fastest, most versatile blockchain ever created. Steem hasn't even exploded yet and it's already doing more work per second than any other blockchain out there - last time I checked Steem blockchain's workload was at 3% of it's total capacity, but already doing more transfers per second than bitcoin and all other blockchains will ever be able to do.

To be honest, I think the only obstacle steem has ahead of it is to take the final step and be traded directly, without having to go through bitcoin. Only then Steem will know its own worth and it will stop being bitcoin's bitch following the market up and down.

Without any iota of doubt i strongly believe that Steem blockchain will surprise everyone who fails to seize this golden opportunity now to invest in it. Long Live Steem Blockchain!!

Your post on "Why TokenBB Chose The Steem Blockchain" is an especial one. In your post you have focused in some very important factors regarding Steem Blockchain. "The chart" that you have mentioned in your post is a realistic one.

hi @tokenbb you have perfectly explain why you chose steem platform, yes i hope so history will repeat again and we are ready to ride the wave upward from here. best of luck for the tokenbb project.

I would love to make DApps but I was a Microsoft Windows Developer and I have a hell of a time switching to the OS and development platforms required to do this. My specialty was freehand 3D drawing software, with game engines in DirectX. Is there anything, steps you can recommend so I can produce something? Once I am started correctly, I fly!


Over at https://dlux.io we've made it as simple as possible to begin building dApps that interact with Steem using webVR as the engine (and now AR as well) all inside of glitch to make social development possible. If you're interested, join our discord, we'll help you build any game or experience you want: https://discord.gg/Beeb38j


Sometimes, even in simpest forms of terminology seem complicated to me. But I grasp it and get the idea/picture.


Thanks for your help. I will definitely do that shortly

Well this sure does sound very promising maybe i shouldn't have sold all my steem i had.

Great one and more informative...😊

IMHO investing in Steem now could be a great opportunity!!

This is a good project in my opinion

Thank you very much for the inspiration. I've been thinking these days more frequently about how to implement my systems on top of Steem and this helps me to finally go all in.

Did you consider any alternatives to Steem for what you wanted to build?


super good article, I fully agree with you that this crypto is still under evaluation despite its huge potential

Buen trabajo, me gustó!!

This will only make STEEM stronger as we proceed forward. With HF20 giving onboarding capabilities to the apps, we should see an explosion over the next 6 months in accounts signed up and participation rates...

Incredible ,really no doubt Steem is the most undervalued cryptocurrency right now. With all it has to offer the the size of it's community, it should be in the top 10. There hasn't been a better time to invest in Steem. The question is you are ready to ride the wave upward from here.

I like your content very much you have large and grate knowledge❤💖❤💖

I really enjoyed that. I've been loving Steem ever since I got involved. Maybe in the near future I'll have the nuts to develop my own income generating dapp..😃😄

Do you think it's really worth it in the current situation on the market? We've reached a very low gap. Unfortunately.
Of course, everything is starting to grow now, but it's still too early to make any predictions.

hi, how are you?

@tokenbb are you sure the steem will up in next few months?

What a great decision. We are happy to welcome you here.i cant wait to be an early user
Steem on

Consider HF20 coming up soon, this fork will increase steem popularity since the acc approval should last no longer than few days. I've been talking with crypto enthusiast and engineers who has really objective approach towards cryptospace and they said that steem is one of the rare project that actually works, so it is up to us to push it on the next level. Thankfully, humans on steemit started understanding that the current system has its flaws and that we need to enhance it and embrace the changes. Keep up the good work lads.

i have never got up vote more than 5
i dont know how grow in steemit
its been more than half a year
sad feeling

Hii I requested to all all I am new Here its my first day so plzz suggest me to run steemit .i shall be thankful to you .Please visit my first blog and upvote if you like .user name @ankitjnv


very informative topic i like that !

thanks for the info - let's ride the wave together :)

While I agree on most of your points, I don't think we shall see icos boosting steem price like it did for Eth but instead SMT would help give more demand for steem. Could be wrong. Also I asked this before-I think it was too late hence no answer but will Tokenbb have a easy way for authors to connect there own SMT to Tokenbb? That would make it much easier for SMT to be used. Thanks and keep up the good work :)


We are still in the design phase. We aim to start our own SMT but we are looking into how there could be a win/win between TokenBB and those deciding not to use our SMT.


Doesn't SMT let use Steem and two other SMTs? So couldn't in theory Tokenbb can use its own SMT and then add a way for the forum owner to use it own SMT?

Excellent this nice


yes we are ready 100% to ride the wave uoward as we believe investors like you and many others will make it happen 😍

Great post. I'm currently considering invest in steem. Resteemed !
