One of the biggest problems with attracting new users to cryptocurrency is demonstrating the “use factor” for the cryptocurrency. Everyone knows you can invest in any coin and hope for it to increase in value, but Steem holds an advantage in that the “use factor” is quite evident.
Steempress is a WordPress plugin that allows any blogger to monetize their site using the Steem blockchain. The plugin is brilliant in that it simplifies the entire blockchain experience. Every blogger using WordPress is familiar with the plugin system so that it one less thing to be explained. Every blogger is also struggling for an audience and monetization. The combination of Steempress and the Steem Blockchain provides both.
Steempress has also made some improvements to the plugin concerning SEO or search engine optimization. The plugin includes a delay posting feature which allows you to post on your site and set a delay for the post to be made on Steemit.
The WordPress community has millions of users. Attracting a small portion of those users to the Steempress plugin could be a natural advertisement for both Steemit and Steem. As the value of Steem increases, Steempress will become all the more valuable to bloggers.
I will be Tweeting about Steempress on Twitter in the hopes of reaching more WordPress bloggers.
