For every Gig you offer, it is nice to add a  portfolio of your past work. It also helps your reputation, if you add video of yourself telling steemians what you offer and why they should  avail of your Gig

15. How Do I Search A Gig?

  • Simply get on and scour the website. 
  • Search our database for SteemGiggers who fit your needs and budget
  • Then, contact them and let them help!
  • If you can't find someone yet who can help, do a custom request (See sample custom request here)
We have a working search engine and an internal database. It is not all refined yet but it already works.  

Currently, it provides results for general keywords as well as usernames. So, if all you have ever dreamt of, is to have your own chatbot, simple do a simple search, using words like "bots", "chatbots", "automation" etc and you will be provided with a list of SteemGiggers who can help! 

See screenshot below:


Our website is not filled yet, hence, results may be scanty but imagine when every steemian begins to offer a service on SteemGigs

Don't be shocked to find free services too! 

Note: We are working rapidly on implementing "Refined Search"

16. How Do I Order My First Gig?

If you find a gig that fits your needs and budget, it is advisable to also check the reputation score of the SteemGigger involved before deciding to make an order. 

Their reputation score is same as on the steem blockchain. Profiles with higher reputation score have been established by the steem community, to be of higher reputation but this isn't always necessarily the case as it is very possible that profiles with low reputation score are reputable as well. 

Thus, it is essential to also take a closer look at other details, along with their reputation score e.g their résumé, portfolio, steemit activity, past blogposts, testimonials if any etc 

Every steemit account starts at a reputation score of 25, which increases as the steemit community starts to acknowledge positively, "the steem activity of these accounts"
Please take extra caution, with profiles that have a negative reputation score e.g (-1) or reputation scores below 25.

After ascertaining that you want to avail of the gig, attempt to contact the SteemGigger. 

Responsible SteemGiggers are very likely to have customized profiles, to indicate their résumé. In many cases, you will be able to find their contact on their profile. In some others cases, SteemGiggers may leave their contact within their gig post.

Note: We are working on internal messaging.

For the sake of transparency, it is recommended that you start out conversations (related to Gig-Ordering) in the comment section of the gig post, so that the steem blockchain can record some evidence of ensuing interaction. 

Further discussion where necessary, can then happen via private channels.

After successful or unsuccessful experiences, consider doing Steemgigs Testimonials

Among other things, testimonial posts also gives you opportunities to earn. Imagining being able to recover the money you have spent purchasing your gig, after doing a testimonial post that ends up adding value to the steem ecosystem, even as content. 

See how much this SteemGigs testimonial post earned!

Also imagine, how many more relationships or connections can be forged, when both parties paint each other in good light, using a testimonial.

Look at an instance of forged relationships resulting from a SteemGigs testimonial post:

SteemGigs testimonials can also be used by SteemGiggers who want to document their process and progress, to aid transparency, reputation and earning potential.

e.g a logo designer may want to create a number of posts, showing the process and progress of the logo he is designing for his client.

Note: There is no limit on the number of SteemGigs testimonial posts, you can do over the course of a gig transaction. 

If you had a bad experience e.g a dispute, you can use a SteemGigs testimonial to document your experience, so that others can be wary about disreputable SteemGiggers and we can be proactive about settling matters.

17. How To Pay For A Gig?

After you have established a payment agreement and you want to make a payment, you will need to do so directly from your steem wallet. Every steemit account holder has a steem wallet.

The various currency-type currently allowed on SteemGigs are:

  • Steem
  • Steem Backed dollars
  • Steem Power (Vested Steem)
Paying in steem or SBD is pretty straight-forward. Simply visit your steem wallet and execute a transfer! It takes 3 seconds.

See the screenshots below, if you are going to pay in Steem Power (Vested Steem):

Note: You must have sufficient liquid steem 
e.g if your payment is 10 SP, you must have 10 Steem or above in your steem wallet.

18. What Is The "Custom Request" Editor?

You can find it towards the top left side of your homepage upon login as seen in the screenshot below:

If you cannot find the service or product you seek in the search engine of, you may create a a type of post called, a "custom request" using this editor, that details the exact kind of service that you seek and your budget.

Sample Use-Case: 

  • I am look for someone to teach me how to ride a space shuttle. (Maximum Budget 1000 Steem)
  • I need someone to help me write my brand name on the sands of a Jamaican seashore. (Maximum Budget 20 SBD)
  • I need someone to help me deliver 5 old Chemistry books, to 5 young students in Manila. (Maximum Budget 10 Steem Power)

19. How Do I Create A Custom Request?

The "custom requests" editor is very straightforward to use. Consider reading the style guide as seen on the right side of every editor on

See screenshots below:

All custom requests are displayed on a special segment or row on the homepage of upon login

20. What Are Featured SteemGigs?

There is a segment of (on the login homepage), reserved for showcasing outstanding gigs. 
See this screenshot:

The Gigs (posts) featured in this segment, are those that have been published by the main @steemgigs account. These are featured Steem Gigs!

Being that Gigs (posts) also appear on steemit, we will consider publishing certain gigs using the @steemgigs main account and promoting these entries to more visibility, both on SteemGigs & Steemit.


  • You may want your gigs to appear before more eyes and contact us to have your gigs published from our main account.
  • We may establish certain Gigs as outstanding and look to feature these gigs.
  • etc 

Overall, SteemGigs looks also to incentivize "good reputation", effort, content etc, by looking to reward both parties (SteemGiggers & Clients)

21. What Are Steemgigs Testimonials?

These are simply blog posts created and published by means of the "steemgigs testimonial" editor.

We expect SteemGiggers and clients to be reputable over the course of transactions, thus, we want to allow both entities, the luxury of being rewarded for documenting their experience on the un-eraseable, permanent steem blockchain. This aids transparency as well as enhances the general reputation model of the steem ecosystem.

SteemGigs testimonials also constitute valuable content and can rank in the search engines, promoting steem also as a community of reputable great minds and as a place where "everyone has something to offer".

Till we are able to implement an optional "escrow service", we will rely on SteemGigs testimonials as a way to keep reputation in check and pay rapt notice to these posts, so that we can be proactive about curbing potential disputes.

22. Why Are Testimonials Full-Blown Posts, Instead Of Simple Comment-Type Reviews?

  • Our motto is; "everyone has something to offer". 
Thus, apart from just creating gigs, we want to keep SteemGigs evergreen, by creating more use-cases for our website. 
We believe in organic growth and the search engines is a major way of accomplishing that, thus, we also want to pride ourselves in creating thousands of blogs daily to serve the search engines, promoting steem in a ton of beautiful ways. Hence, the need to keep "SteemGIGS testimonials", full-blown readable and enjoyable posts. 
  • We also want each one to do the "dreaming", leaving the "building" to us! 
SteemGigs testimonials allows both SteemGiggers and clients, to write more expressively, their entire experience. 
We believe this does way more in inspiring as many as want to, to dare to dream, with well-rooted conviction drawn from these testimonies, that they can come to SteemGigs and have dreams, enterprises, innovation ideas etc all built.
  • We want SteemGigs to preserve reputation
Knowledge that a positive SteemGigs testimonial can forge further relationships, stir connections and enhance résumé, will incentivizes both parties to keep their end of the bargain.

23. Why is SteemGigs important?

To build a dream is hardly ever easy. There may be odds! 

These odds may be lack of mentorship, lack of direction, lack of expertise, lack of capital, lack of connections etc

Whatever is lacking, we want to passionately offer it. 

But, what if you no longer dream? Many times, that is what is actually starting to lack. Yes, because of the incessant thought that every other thing is lacking, we halt dreaming altogether or no longer dream limitlessly.

SteemGigs: Is an ecosystem where "everyone has something to offer", thus, making each dream closer to "attainable"

We passionately look to prove this and more.... 

  • We aim to incentivize the process of "mining the human". 
  • We aim to reward even "attempts at out-of-the-boxness". 
  • We aim to reward even the art of "sifting sense from non-sense". (Just perhaps, we will be re-sparked into dreaming again). 
  • Then, we will aim to reward reputable SteemGiggers, who put their expertise into testimonial good use, in helping you build your dreams.

To remove all barriers, we also added an untalented paradigm to SteemGigs, aiming to prove one thing: that, if we eliminate bum, average, smart; "we are genius".

Everyone has something to offer!

24. Are Any Other Revolutionary Facets of SteemGigs?

As we want to make sure that "everyone as something to offer", we will seamlessly make SteemGigs into a complete hub of knowledge-base. 

Many times, for dreams, innovation ideas etc to attain fruition, INTEL has been the only thing missing!

Not only will you be able to offer gigs and request gigs; you will also be able to seek knowledge, hone your expertise, attain directions etc. 

You will eventually be able to surmount hurdles, tend to your own tasks or build your dreams, yourself! Then, you will graduate into being able to offer your expertise as a service towards others. 

Unlike mainstream freelancing marketplaces, we want SteemGigs to constitute a solid means to positive world-adjustment, thus we will look to continuously add features, making the use of SteemGigs evergreen; "a curriculum!"

We want SteemGigs to amplify the beauty of blockchain; "the steem blockchain".

On mainstream marketplaces like Fiverr, Upwork, Freelancer etc endeavors are mostly built around "business"
There isn't a real community, thus, it can very easily turn into a large database of  résumé(s), where people just visit to seek out talents > go into private conversations > complete orders > say good bye till the next need arises. 

SteemGigs is built around the steem blockchain and backed by an actual "solid community of great reputable minds" who have real interest in one another. 

We don't want to just build a database of talents and résumé(s). 
We want to build a hive, where each one is a celebrity, moreso, because he relishes having testimonial impact on history by helping the next person build their dream. A hive where each one knows the other, down to what each one can offer, for in hands of the noble, this is ginormously powerful INTEL.

So yes; we will gradually add dimensions to SteemGigs, that will keep users in incessant excitement about the art of "mining the human into its awesomest version".

We don't want a situation where you simple publish, say 5 gigs > customize your profile > leave >> to return whenever you get a notification of your next client. 

We want you to hangout on SteemGigs.
We want you to stay ever-active, enjoying the use of SteemGigs and this is where our very edge lies. 

Thus, one other paradigm we have added, just to show a glimpse into the future dynamism of SteemGigs is the untalented paradigm

In the nearest future, we will also integrate a main segment on the homepage dedicated to "creative contests"  as well as knowledge-based and empowerment-related categories involving e.g "how-to", DIYs, tutorials, TIL (Today I Learned) etc all with specialized editors and full steem interaction capability i.e upvotes, replies, messaging etc right there on 

25. What is the "untalented editor"?

You can find the untalented editor on the left side of the SteemGigs homepage, upon login. 

See screenshot below:

It is simply a specialized editor that you can use to create enviable steemit posts. In a bid to fix content curation & discovery challenges related to steem (in the nearest future), we are experimenting with specialized editors. 

On SteemGigs, we have added the untalented editor, to enhance the ability of steemians in creating very valuable, curate-able steemit posts. 

We have simplified the editor, so that it is very easy to stylize and format your steemit posts.

You can use this editor to create steemit posts under any tag or niche. This is among the best editors for newer steemians especially as it makes it easy for you to create posts, without worrying much about HTML or post-formatting.

For now, posts created using this editor only appears on & Being that colors aren't yet appear-able on these interfaces, we considering emoji capabilities to the untalented editor in the coming days or weeks

It has a style guide for newbies as well, to help them create the perfect introductory post.

26. What Is Untalented-Steemgigs?

This one of the main categories on SteemGigs, that allows you to offer a service, even when you don't consider yourself an expert yet. 

We don't want any level of talent or potential talent to go amiss and we strongly believe that there is a lot of talent in "the attempt" i.e "in attempts at out-of-the-boxness" 

e.g if you are constantly told that your drawing (art) is child's play and you keep attempting it your drawing (art) regardless, there is untold "talent" in "the attempt"

Hence, we want to have room as well, for many who want to try out their hands at offering a service but who haven't developed enough confidence or expertise to proclaim themselves experts. 

This is all you need to know whenever you decide to choose Untalented-Steemgigs as your main category, during the course of creating your gig post:

Want to offer a Gig but feel that you are not an expert yet? The Untalented-Steemgigs category is for you! It allows you to still offer a service, while honing your skills into perfection. Clients may want to try your service out, even with the knowledge that you aren't an expert, thus, consider providing affordable rates to stir further relationships. Stay reputable and sincere and use opportunities as an avenue to evolve into an expert. 

Bottomline? On SteemGigs, "everyone has something to offer".

Note: Untalented-SteemGigs mostly contains a list of sub-categories that aren't too critical-mode tasks and can afford a measure of flaws e.g Photo-Edits, Fun & Lifestyle, Relationship Advice etc

Gig posts that fill up this categories will be tagged Untalented-SteemGigs, so that potential clients can know first-hand that the steemians offering these services aren't yet experts.

27. Do My Gig Posts Appear In The Search Engine?

Yes, every genre of post published from are indexed by the search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo etc) and will show organically in search results.

28. What Can I Do If I Experience Some Difficulties Using SteemGigs?

29. What If I Encounter A Dispute?

First course of action is to stay reputable. 

Disputes can occur in a community and SteemGigs is a community but disputes are manageable and can be resolved even by using measures as simple as patient, tactful conversations etc 

For now, SteemGigs is solely peer-to-peer, relying mostly on the transparency & "reputation paradigm" of the steem blockchain, when it comes to resolving disputes.

Down the road, we may consider implementing an "escrow service" but even that will be on an OPT-IN basis.

Thus, you can always speak about your SteemGigs experience in full-blown posts called "SteemGigs Testimonials". These testimonials will be recorded on the steem blockchain and unerase-able. 

Testimonials are in existence primarily to forge further connections, up-build relationships, improve general reputation etc but can also be used as media to warn others in the community of disreputable SteemGiggers or Clients, so that others can be wary about disreputable SteemGiggers and we can be proactive about settling matters.

Thus, whenever you decide to use a SteemGigs testimonial to relate a not-so-nice experience with a client or SteemGigger, your primary aim shouldn't be to tear another down but to make others wary of these disreputable individuals and ultimately to educate and stir positive change.

Please consider consulting with me (@surpassinggoogle) in cases where you need help with resolving disputes. 
If i am not reachable, reach out to any of the moderators on the discord server and they will reach out to me where needed.

4. What Do We Do At SteemGigs?

We are an open-source internet organization, passionate about helping each human bring their dreams or innovation ideas into reality, thus, we create an online community that enables that.

Hi @GinaBot, thanks for informing me about this.
I was here right in time to read this post and share my valid comment.

I'm happy, do you know why? #Steemgigs is growing, progressing and getting more innovative and realistic.

I remember when I joined steemit, #steemgigs was one of the tag I mostly visited. Heck yes, I even used the tags on my posts - I didn't really get the real meaning and purpose of steemgigs until one day when somebody (I can remember his name) drew my attention to the main meaning of #steemgigs. He explained that it has to do with freelancing or should I say offering your talents and skills for hire and many other things. THINK ABOUT FIVERR

I was happy when I heard about that.

I can remember the first thing I did after hearing that - I designed a Surpassinggoogle picture with the steemgigs tag for Terry using one of his profile picture. @surpassinggoogle do you remember that your 'moving the mountain' picture? The one I infused the Google design and Steemgigs? Lol

So what am I trying to say?

I'm saying I'm happy about steemgigs. I'm happy it's finally a reality, I'm happy happy it's growing, I'm happy it's getting massive adoption, I'm happy it's helping a lot of persons, I'm happy because I'm supposed to be happy.

Shout out to @surpassinggoogle for the great dreams and shoutout to all those who've been there and have been supporting the dreams and movement ever since.


I art this for your birthday but you did n't see this. that's why i feel very bad my self.

@steemgigs simply the best way to promote our hidden talents. Very precise article about this new website. With this it can help us steemians to have an extra income from our talents and services. Good job @surpassinggoogle and to your team.

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

Right, right, those talents will not be forever hidden. Thank you very much to these very brilliant endeavor of @surpassinggoogle that everyone finally have the opportunity to showcase them, no matter how "tiny" those services may be.

And yes, I do have my own footer too. Thank you so much to @panoramicview. I was one of those first 7 actually who availed of it for FREE! Amazing right?!

salute you sir @surpassinggogle. your contribution is one of biggest part of @steemit. i respact you from my heart.

i am sure you can offer this footer service on steemgigs, have you thought of this

Note: is way beyond just a freelancing marketplace. It is a community of reputable great minds upon which, "everyone has something to offer".

All these leaves me speechless and spell-bound. This is a new order ,a new genre , a trailblazing and distinguishing event with a mandate to liberate . A lot of people who couldn't attempt 'the-out-of-boxness' before now can avail themselves of the opportunity presented by steemgigs to be awesome. Steemgigs is indeed a place where everyone has something to offer.

This is awesomely detailed @surpassinggoogle, all facets thrashed and laid bare in an easy to understand language. Kudos Terry.

I agree. I hope all questions about steemgigs are cleared now at least.

The faq was a well detailed one

I am just re-told; Jehovah aligns everything

You're so humble @surpassinggoogle. I know Jah using yiu as an instrument to help us here on Steemit.

I agree Terry is a man sent from Yeshua! Thanks for following the still silent voice Terry.

am new here. may be that's reason you can't see my comment. anyway i want to say can i join with @steemgigs. it is available for new joiner?

Aside from motivating me, personally, my faith is strengthened because you do not take the praises for all these but to God Jehovah who ultimately is giving us everything. Your humility is so inspiring.

True! We are all happy because of @steemgigs is very promising. All of us can join and offer something. It is not for professional only but for everyone just like their slogan "everyone has something to offer". I am really amazed by their concept and happy that @steemgigs is improving for the better. Great work steemgigs team!

God luck you projects and God bless @surpassinggoogle

Terry this is an excellent presentation. So concise, yet so informative. I love what you are doing here and pleased to see your success. You have given so much of your time and energy, I'm happy to see your ideas bear fruit. I know the efforts that you put in to give back to everyone, so its time to take a bow young man and accept the praise of what is coming.

The price drop of steem is a blessing in disguise, so people like you will have even more power when all is said and done. There is a classic reset going on and I love what that will do for you and your causes that you support.

I may not have as much time as I like to give you as much attention as you deserve, but I respect and admire you a lot. If you ever need me, I will be there to help you in a heartbeat. Until that day comes though, I will be building a network that will support you and the things you represent (helping others to help themselves).

Take care of yourself too, we need you in the long run! :)

Thanks Sir Terry for help us understand STEEMGIGS. You are really a champion, articulate and a genius! Thanks for your continued support to all of us. SALAMAT PO! God bless

Wow, such a comprehensive yet simple explanation on what STEEMGIGS is all about. This more than ever gave me a full grasp on the potential of everyone. True to the tag, sky is the limit on what one can offer. Very valuable post again Sir Terry.

I admit I was hesitant to offer a service in steemgigs coz I don't have any expertise, hehe

26. What Is Untalented-Steemgigs?

This one of the main categories on SteemGigs, that allows you to offer a service, even when you don't consider yourself an expert yet.

That really is a motivation for non expert like me:-)

Thank you sir @surpassinggoogle

That's call untalented steemgigs

Wow terry! This is incredible. You clearly put a ton of work into the site as well as this post explaining it in a way that anyone can understand. One of my dreams for steemit has always been for some of my very creative former students, who didn't quite fit the college mold , to find a way to earn a living based on their creativity, talent and hard work. I think steemgigs will help many people like this.

Great job!

sir can i write here my own writing story at @steemgigs?

  1. Do My Gig Posts Appear In The Search Engine?

This one is very important for us. thanks to you you notice it and makes this option. i was trying and it work.

Well "my boy Terry" , what can I say that hasn't already been said!! I read Dave's comment at the top and he summed it up perfectly! He and I met in the beginning and have stuck together ever since...and I value his opinion, as I do yours! You were one of my witnesses already, but when anyone asks me about who to vote for, you are certainly one of the names I pass on. Anyone who puts the kind of effort and time into all of this, is certainly a sign of how much you care about this platform, but also about people. That's my mission here as well; helping people become the best they can be. You should be very proud of all you've accomplished!

...oh, thanks for the banner link too. I will now wear it proudly at the bottom of my posts!

This 33 FAQ, says it all. thank you @surpassinggoogle for letting us understand what is really @steemgigs. All my questions have been answered with this article.

Just wow! @steemgigs is more becoming a great help to all of us. It's not complete yet but the process of its improvement is awesome! I can't wait for another update about steemgigs. For sure it will be a big hit in social media in the future.

This post is not for the faint in heart. Let me re-adjust to grasp.

Hahaha, before i could finish reading it. Saw over 10 comments already. Are people now reading with bots

I wonder

Hahaha and the post was edited. It got bigger than blocksize and both steemit and busy couldn't post it. I had to edit. You know i have read all the post you have written about me and on the entire steemit, gosh, it must be Jehovah that inspires you into understanding what i do cos of human to understand it so pinpointly, i truly think it is impossible. There is you and one woman from Columbia. I also see how you create though words anyhow they come. I do that alot. You have come to know me too much.

I am a pupil sitting at the feet of a master.

My wish is to be like you in churning out wisdom. You are a super brilliant young man and you motivate me to be my best. Your every word is inspiring and I will continue to sit at your feet with the intent to learn from the best........ You.

People know you because you live in their heart @surpassinggoogle!

This. That's just moving.

ha ha ha

Everuthing i neeed to know about steemgigs in hete. Have to cofess, i paused at number 20 to continue later.
I have a strong feeling i'll become a reputable steemgigger soon enough though.
How are you able to combine the 3 personalities in one by the way?☺
When i read a @teardrops post, i'm in a different world and now i'm in another. Keep up the good work, may He continually strenghthen you.

We don't want any level of talent or potential talent to go amiss and we strongly believe that there is a lot of talent in "the attempt" i.e "in attempts at out-of-the-boxness"

This is what I love! There is a vision behind the mission. Steemgigs is more than just a digital marketplace, it is more than a place for just talents, it is also a place that grooms untalented to become talented. So no one is left out. The bum, the average, the smart are all welcome to be a part of this vision. I must again say 'Thank you Terry for this all-inclusiveness'.

Wow this is so much to take in one read, steemgigs is a whole new world on its own ready to be explored, I must commend your efforts towards this @surpassinggoogle a place where we can trade ideas and talents on the blockchain is simply amazing.. I can't wait to start steemgiging 😂.

You have to become Jack of all trade like surpassinggoogle first to combine all personalities. He got to many ideas and I know more are coming. Yes More strength be given to him from God

Here is a description of step by step.It has many help for us. I've
bookmarked it

@surpassinggoogle it is no secret anymore that your help towards the community is far beyond anyone would ever imagine. I wish i had the same influence as you do,to help in my return as much you do. There are people out there that really need support. I wish you all the best to this trip
Ps. No need to mention that you are already upvoted as a witness

yes his help is no more secreet on this platform anymore

hes a great man i ever known

He is very kind and altruistic
Truly you surpassing google with great idea put into practice via the blockchain.
@surpassinggoogle is surpassing google 😁😁😁
Great work!!!!

@mindtrap, life is step by step, you will get there someday provided you still stick to your desire and also put positive actions, before you know, nature will connect you to people of likemineds who will influence you to influence others too.

absolutely @surpassinggoggle is an angel and a blessing to steemit and humanity generally, THANK YOU BOSS, may GOD continue to multiply you more and more

Firstly we are trying to surpass google, now we wanna surpass Fiverr, up work and every other freelancing sites. This FAQ is a well detailed one I must say and I believe it answers a lot of our curiosity.

But please @surpassinggoogle, I would love to suggest, if there is a way to hasten up account confirmation (for new applicants), it would make this project a huge success. Cause imagine a buyer signing up and taking more than two weeks to get confirmed, that might be a huge challenge tho. Please look into it. Or if there's a way preference can be given to buyers, it would make more sense. Thanks.

You will definitely have same influence someday. I believe surpassinggoogle started like us but worked harder to get to this spot. We will all get there someday

It's not a news anymore that @surpassinggoole is Man that want better life for all human like him. It's hardly to see a kind man like him. In face I am speechless in the sense that I don't know what to say to appreciate him for all his effort . My prayer to him is God Almighty will reward you. Sir I want you to know that you are not doing this for anybody, but for your generation to come and your work will speak then. I red this post all trough and I am impressed. Sir how can I contribute to this project, please I want to support with the little I have. Thanks sir, waiting for your reply sir. Resteemed.

Hey Terry Good Night!

I think there is no need to ask us:
Please Bookmark This!

This project is world's most demanding project only due to your Generosity, hard-work, devotion and love towards POOR & NEEDY PEOPLE.
This is now responsibility of all of us to not only bookmark it but also take it to the next level and also make it the necessary element of our lives.
You have changed the lives of thousands of people terry. And this is the only reason you have no need to ask us. People already understand and will always say yes what you offer and what do you want to do.

All the very best Terry @surpassinggoogle. Keep smiling ever!

I took me about 15 min just to read this pretty fast and I could tell this is the best SteemGigs introduction I have ever seen. Not surprisingly my vote went for SteemGigs as a witness already. I definately love the way to be called SteemGigger. Always catching my eyes when I hear free transaction fee. You can pay for Gigs without having to reveal personal information which is crucial for me. Sooo easy payment within few seconds. You can sell a service and get paid in steem/SBD/Steem-Power etc and soo much more. I’m soo excited to start using SteemGigs.

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

Yes, #steemgigs is a welcome development to this community, Kudos to all the persons behind the initiative, am not regret that am part of this community, thanks @surpassinggoogle.

Yes @adeboy1 you can never never regret that you're part of this community, because this platform has changed many life for better including me. Kudos to @surpassinggoole and all the people behind the success.

yes o, that free payment with ID hidden is the sweetest, as a #steemgiger or he who wants to patronise a giger, your ID can be hidden

Very thank you for everything in this comment

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

SteemGigs let’s go mainstream especially when everyone has something to offer and especially steemians. You article is beyond amazing. I don’t think there is a unanswered question. If anyone has any question regarding SteemGigs he should visit this post. I love this “I will pretend to be your girl friend for a day, for 5 steem or I will tell you what he or she is thinking about You, for 0.32SBD”lol. Anyway, for me privacy is #1 concert and I could tell SteemGigs thought it through. Great job @steemgigs and @surpassinggoogle

you are the real hero @surpassinggoogle. i love you from my heart.

  ·  2 years ago (edited)
