A Steemian is the term used to describe a member of the Steemit website,


The term "Whale" was originally used to describe a wealthy Bitcoin trader who has an influence on the market. It then became a widely used term for any wealthy cryptocurrency trader.[1]

On Steemit a whale is a user who has a lot of SP (STEEM Power (SP)) and therefore more voting power. See more: Whale


The term 'Dolphin' is used to describe a cryptocurrency user who does not have as much revenue as a whale but has more revenue than a minnow. This means a dolphin has some influence unlike a minnow. A dolphin is less influenced by a whales activity. See more: Dolphin


As well as describing a small fish, the term "Minnow" also means a small or insignificant person or organization.

In cryptocurrency a Minnow is a is a trader with very little revenue. A minnow has very little or no influence on the market. minnows often follow the herd so are dictated by the whales influence.

On Steemit a minnow is a user who does not own much Steem power. As such, the minnow has very little voting power and hardly any influence on the revenue distributed to the poster. See more: Minnow


Continuing the sea ecosystem analogy some users also are denominated Orca, Redfish or Plankton. Other steemians define in different ways like Steemizen, Steemulan, etc.
