Steemit, the decentralized social media platform, has concluded its first-ever public event in Europe, SteemFest. The success of the community-organized event has led to the decision to plan weekly meet-ups in new cities around the world every weekend.
SteemFest Amsterdam was attended by over 200 enthusiasts from around the world, many of which funded their travel from posts made on Steemit. Notable attendees included CEO Ned Scott and ‘The Game’ author, Neil Strauss. Held at the Volkshotel in Amsterdam from November 11th – 13th, participants discussed Steemit’s growth, the rise of cryptocurrency and blockchain, and the impending mainstream adoption of decentralized social media.
