Steem Philippines | 13th Official Meetup in Davao City
This is a step-by-step guide for buying STEEM tokens if you live (or are residing) in the Philippines.
The base token for the Steem blockchain is STEEM and in it's liquid form, it can be converted to Bitcoin, ETH, other crypto-currencies and in some cases, US Dollars, or other Government issued currencies depending on where you live.
