Top 100 Posts of 2017 by USD Payout!

top 100 post cover photo.png

Wow, looking back 2017 was an amazing year for Steem and Steemit. We've seen new record highs in user adoption, shattered all records in terms of blockchain capacity, and hit new record highs for the price of Steem and SBD! The future is looking increasingly bright. More and more new users are joining up who already have huge followings on Facebook, YouTube, and other platforms, and awareness and interest in Steem are continuing to grow.

I wanted to take a quick post to reflect on the past year (and practice my coding a little!) and look at the top 100 rewarded posts of 2017. If you're interested in the nitty-gritty details, I tested out a monthly subscription to SteemSQL, a service by @arcange that I highly recommend, along with the historical SBD price data from coinmarketcap to generate these values. As you may or may not know, the dollar amount you see next to posts is not exactly the actual US dollar value of the payout, due to the fluctuating value of Steem-Backed Dollars (especially recently!).

So anyway, I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane, and have some fun looking at some of the most influential posts of 2017!

Several authors dominated the top-100 list of 2017 with multiple posts making the list:


I hope this was an interesting post for you, and here's wishing you all a happy and successful 2018!
Trogdor :)


I see like 95% of the posts are about steemit, and then this one-

Myth or Fact? #17 – Cockroaches can survive a nuclear catastrophe

Which leads me to believe I need be writing about Steemit a lot more often with the occasional insect post thrown in. My ratio of steemit to insect posts is not optimized for maximum earning potential apparently.

Lol, exactly. Of course it helps if you have some connections too haha

It does totally help a lot if you happen to have tons of friends on steemit (like some have 1000s on Facebook)

There's a theme here, most those posts are boring as shit lol I was hoping you compiled your favorite posts but now thinking about that statement that'd be incredibly hard. For what it's worth this post wasn't boring and it was interesting to see the list. Have a great night

Lol, I dont know how I would think of my personal top 100 posts. I'd have to go back and reread thousands of posts haha

Yeah those few big hitters rocked 2017. Well deserved too. Many of those big payouts were for steemit community stuff, so yay, making this a bigger better platform! Go palnetSteem!

Yeah definitely, thanks for reading!

A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS! Very interesting post my Friend! Thank you so very much for sharing! I strongly believe that 2018 is going to be a very special year for Steem and the Great Steemit Community! All the best! Warm Wishes! Positive Energy! Great Karma! Your Friend @extraterrestrial :)

Thanks for reading!

This is a really interesting post indeed. I guess it's natural that you would get many repeat successes, but to be honest, I expected a bit more diversity. I guess the people with the largest followings and the strongest support are the ones who can succeed regularly.

Yeah I see what you mean. Thanks for reading!

That was a very interesting read. I would have guessed sweetssj would have had more top payouts.

Thanks for reading! Yeah she definitely is up there every day.

Congratulations to all

I do not understand that there is so much sharing about steem. why do not we get so much upVotes in the current issues. while the goal is to make money while sharing information is always in second place. it is really sad

Hopefully the platform will keep getting better!

I am going to be in there one day :)

I hope you do! :) :) :)

when I do, I will introduce you in my post 😊

Awesome @Trogdor! Always awesome to see you supporting other members of the Community. It would be great to interview you on my MSP Waves Radio Show some time! Keep up the great work.

Thanks for reading! Not sure if I have much interesting to say though :p haha

Wow, These are some super inspiring #'s here :O Great Post!

Thanks for reading!

Thanks for sharing with us

Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the list Trogdor. Its interesting to see what types of posts explode like that. Ill need to puruse later to see what else i can do to get noticed in the same fashion. Organizing the data and providing in this list though is more than half the battle, Dilly Dilly!

The blockchain is the future of social networks. Applications like facebook, instagram and twitter have the days counted, or make a change in the direction of cryptocurrencies or will be forgotten. Platforms like steemit, steepshot, D-tube can be the future.

I agree 100%! Thanks for reading.

@trogdor sorry before I really do not know what you say but I try to translate using google translate. the development of steemit is very rapidly from 2017 until now, as a beginner I am very proud to be part of steemit.

Thanks for reading!

How can My Posts also gather that. How can I make great and tremendous improvement

Friends do take out time to check out all my post so far

Thank You...!!!

hello @trogdor a really descriptive share :). I'm new here I need experienced people like you, please support me

Ooh interesting!

Thank you very much for the information!!!
Successes! ;D


@trogdor hopefully in the next year I can be included into the 100 people who can get it .... I will be very genuine for all that

now steemit is indeed being tranding and many in the rush by young people.
and may of this year steemit growing and successful among the public.

Greeting succses from me @jamhur26
