We’ve all been looking for the perfect job or side hustle that can make us some money with very little effort. But let’s face it unless getting to eat avos, binge-watching Netflix or browse memes becomes a viable income generator, then, no, there is no perfect job for the millennial.
Hang on a second, what if I told you memes can make you money?
If you have a vested interest and passion for memes or your bank account balance is currently a meme then listen closely at the words I am about to utter, You can now get paid to make memes! Yes, take a second and let it sink in, memes can make you money.
A new website built on the Steemit network called dMania is here and they aim to decentralise memes, to take memes from the powerful and the corrupt and give it back to the people.
Essentially, dMania is here to make memes great again
What is dMania?
dMania is an app very similar to the likes of 9GAG but lives on the Steem blockchain. Users are able to post funny pics, memes or gifs and are rewarded by the community for the quality of their posts and contributions.
In the past making money online isn’t easy for everyone, you need to have some sort of skill, like a developer, content writer or vlogger, which not everyone is interested in doing.
Memes are simple, everybody likes them and everybody can make them. They are an easier form to express your opinion or your thoughts.
On dMania you are not just limited to memes. You can post anything that you think is interesting or funny. A post on dMania only consists of a title and a picture.
This way a lot of people who were just consuming content can become content creators themselves.
How does dMania work?
dMania uses the Steemit network and blockchain to allow users to earn cryptocurrency for their use of the network, for all your efforts on the platform you will be rewarded in Steem.
Steem is similar to other digital currencies. For example, Steemit currency units can be traded, bought, and sold on the open market just like all of the other digital currencies.
Every day, new Steemit currency units are created by the network and distributed to the people who engage with the website. So the more you engage with the site, the more you get.
People who create content are rewarded for their content. People who upvote content are rewarded for helping to curate the best content available on the site. Commenters who add to the discussions are paid too.
