We all know that creating an account on the Steem blockchain isn't free.
Well, it is kind of free - however it simply does take time.
I actually never understood why does it take so long. Account creation is currently the biggest reason why new users would not join this platform.
I tried to create new account lately and after 2 weeks it has been finally "approved". However I didn't even receive any notification that I can use Steemit already and that account is approved. I was like ... OMG. That's just bad.
ps. I couldn't find 'create new account' tab on steemworld.org :(
