Yes, as he's alluding to a forum that "pays" for your posts. It's not probably in your best interest to get a crypto account handed to by unseen people. Which is exactly what that place does. It's a very clever way to manipulate people and a fake crypto currency.
You've been warned.
Guys, there is literally nothing about Steem that is an actual pyramid scheme, any more so than any other cryptocurrency (and they're not either, generally speaking with perhaps a few exceptions, even when they are premines, ICOs, and another scams). "Pyramid scheme" means a specific thing which is a structured system where later entrants pay those 'above' them on the pyramid. Nothing even remotely like that exists in Steem. There is no pyramid, no hierarchal structure of any kind, and no one pays anyone else. The title of this thread was basically trolling and/or ignorance. If you like Steem, great, if you don't like it, that's fine too, but please let's forget about the 'pyramid scheme' nonsense already after almost 3 years. That doesn't mean there aren't legitimate criticisms, I have plenty. "Pyramid scheme" isn't one of them.
I will retract my statement about it being a pyramid scheme based on me learning of the altered inflation schedule.
