This paper examines the concept and the criticisms of Steemit, with a view to situating its difficulties in imposing a self-regulating cryptoanarchist information network, as well its interesting meshing of blogging and social networking with a blockchain (Steem) database. This raises questions about the structures of accountability in the cryptocurrency realm, and of the abuse of cryptoanarchist principles in practice.
