Steemit, Inc is a privately held company based in New York City and a head quarter in Virginia founded by Ned Scott and Dan Larimer in 2016. In July, 4th, 2016, the company officially launched Steemit, a social media with virtual currency rewards that runs over the Steem blockchain.

Member of Agentic Group, a global consortium of blockchain and digital currency, the company claims not to have pre-mined STEEM Tokens reinforcing that all mining took place after the coin was officially and publicly announced on Bitcointalk forum.[1]

The Steemit, Inc. controlled primary account, @steemit, had approximately 41% of the platform’s Steem Power in January, 2017, and would be gradually divested of its holdings in an effort to increase promotion and development of the platform while dispersing voting power. As a CEO, [Ned Scott] indicated to Forbes magazine that this will be done in a “gradual multi-year divestment”.[2]

The company made public a 2017 Roadmap with the year's strategy. In March 15th, 2017 Dan resigned as a head of technology[3] and a marketing team was announced with Mitchel Loureiro (@zuvarnic) and @andrachy.[4]

Some of the advisor board members are Frank Rimalovski, Andrew Haines and William Mougayar (@wmougayar). Some members of the staff are @cass, Jeffrey Paul (@sneak)[5], James Calfee (@jamesc) and Valentine Zavgorodnev (@val-a).[6]
