DMania is one of the newest apps on the STEEM blockchain. The project aims to build a website to compete against 9GAG and other internet meme sites.
9GAG is popular online platform and social media website for collections of Internet memes. It was launched back in 2008.
As of November 2017 the meme site had over 223 million visitors with the following breakdown: 11.03% from Germany, 5.55% from the United States, 4.40% from France, 4.19% from Brazil and 3.99% from United Kingdom – Wikipedia
There are heated debates on Steemit right now about DMania being a positive or negative for STEEM. Is DMania for plagiarism and stealing others original work or creativity or harmlessly sharing images and data online?
Are jokes worth money? The comedians who make a living making people laugh would say yes.
We Think DMania is a cool and interesting project in the Steemit blockchain ecosystem. We shall see if it gains traction and attracts high volume of website traffic. 9GAG certainly does.

Other STEEM Apps Worth Checking Out
D.Tube is the first crypto-decentralized video platform, built on top of the STEEM Blockchain and the IPFS peer-to-peer network. D.Tube is a great alternative to YouTube for content creators and they get paid in STEEM!
Because of the decentralized nature of IPFS and the STEEM blockchain, D.Tube is not able to censor videos only users censor through the power of upvotes and downvotes.
D.Tube runs without advertising, giving a better user experience. D.Tube also uses IPFS peer-to-peer networks. IPFS is a protocol that enables decentralized file storage.
Busy.org is one of the coolest apps for STEEM blockchain. We highly suggest it. The latest release allows for DTube videos to embed in posts on Busy.
Busy.org is an open-source social network and communications platform that includes a variety of rich features and functionalities.
An open platform for an apps ecosystem: Busy’s goal is to build an all-in-one platform and allow many apps and features to flourish on top of the Busy social media platform. We are offering an open-source and secure social network layer to bootstrap any Apps (like Facebook Apps does, or WeChat services), games, community tools, marketplaces for good or services, using Steem.js API, SteemConnect and the Busy.org ‘framework.’
An open-source project and vision, and an alternative interface to Steemit.com: we believe in wisdom of the crowd, open decision-making, taking a collaborative and transparent approach, that’s why all our work is open source. Everyone is free to contribute, by all appropriate means to accomplish our mission. Not only coders but also designers, writers, translators, testers, marketers, advisors, etc. We’re partnering with @utopian.io to incentivize and reward open source contributions on Busy.org.
