My entry to @stoodkev 's steem elevator pitch contest - take four which is as long as it took me to not be obviously reading from the script which is below!
The guidelines were to pitch to an investor, and I think I've convinced myself to buy a little more Steem, once my money transfer to Kraken goes through tomorrow!
It's a very large and spacious elevator and I've already handed my victim my card with QR code links to the steemit FAQs, Splinterlands, 3speak and so on, and my details so they can ask me any further questions.
This is also my first ever 3speak upload, it seems very functional!
If you fancy a hedge against the Corporate tech companies, then you might want to invest in Steem...
Steem is like Facebook and YouTube etc. but with no centralised control, no censorship, and no de-platforming, which means that independent investors have much more power to determine the direction which Steem takes in the future.
If you stake Steem there are several ways you can make a > 20% annual return, and you can choose to pay content producers with no risk to your vested capital.
There are several applications on Steem: including games which allow you to make a decent return from investing in digital-game assets and leasing them out to players.
Steem brings together investors, content creators, consumers, developers, and entrepreneurs, and because it cuts out corporate leaches, it seems like a natural home for the increasing numbers of people who distrust the big tech companies,
An investment in Steem today not only supports a decentalised future, it could prove very profitable when the masses find their way there.
Check out Steemit.com for FAQs and Splinterlands as the most successful application so far built on Steem!
