STEEMFEST 2016 Recap
About this Site
SteemFest 2016 Amsterdam was an epic blast!
This website tries to recapture the event and will fail.
i had the pleasure to attend the very first SteemFest Conference on 11th-13th November 2016 in Amsterdam. SteemFest was the very first international gathering of the Steemit-Community. It turned out to be a one-of-a-kind event. The vibrancy, dedication, diversity and passion of all the people who came to Amsterdam from over 30 countries was truly outstanding.
During the event i have been taking lots of videos and some photos and while reviewing my footage i got the idea that i should create a SteemFest Recap Website as my contribute to the SteemFest experience.
I hope that this collection of video recordings, community content and my own imagery brings back some sweet memories for those who attended the conference.
But i also made this website for anyone who hasn't been there and wants to learn about this new movement and the people behind it. I'm going to send it out to my best friends and hope it will help them to understand better what makes the Steemit Crypto Community so special.
This website is a work in progress. You are more than welcome to give me feedback on the design & contents of the site. If you have more ideas & contents to add or if you think some content should be removed or email me firstname.lastname@example.org or ping me on steemit.chat.
A big THANK YOU to @roelandp, @steemfest, @ned, @dan and everyone who has helped to make STEEM and SteemFest happen.

What is Steemit?
Steemit.com is a crypto based social network. It's a whole new beast of internet technology, something inbetween bitcoin, facebook, reddit, and medium but better. It runs on a blockchain and then you can get paid for publishing and curating content. Just like that. Because STEEM has created a whole new decentralised crypto economy.
