Join this Smoke.io Conversation; Best Way To Solve Problem Is By Solving It.

3 months ago
We have problem. Yes! or should I call it a challenges? But the good side of it, is that its not one man problem and it can't be solve by only one man. Which simply means we all can solve it by start doing it rightfully. Actually its not a problem before not until when some jerks with low intellectual have refused to read about this project but writing what is not about what they don't understand. I am posting this here because I want everyone to read, give opinion and let take action.

The first day I saw this project advert on Coinmarketcap, I said to my room-mate "let click on this and smoke something nice." He knew very well that I don't smoke but he know what I am capable of when it comes to liking a project. I clicked on the ads and went through the website (https://smoke.network), whitepaper, join the group. Then I see what all this is all about. Even when the smoke.io was launched I was still optimistic how things is going to be. What I have learned so far is that researching doesn't kill but make one smarter.

Some of our friends out there ain't ready to understand what this is all about, most refused to read the pitch paper not to talk of the whitepaper, yet all they keep in mind is our slogan Smoke, Get paid & Repeat.. Their mistake is that they forget to ask their-self question like, Who's going to pay you for just Smoking?. This is the same question I asked myself then that makes me read the whitepaper and the almost everything about the project (if not all).


Hey! what does it cost to learn about what we don't know about? JUST GOOGLE IT. I came to realized if not for google many people might be walking with head upside down. It is getting funny as people are now refusing to be using the google this days. According to a SmokeD Data, today make it 114 days I have been on this platform and within these days I have learned about 300+ sickness which Cannabis can cure, part of it is what cancer is part of and I have learn that Endocannabinoid is part of natural chemical which GOD created in everyone, which is made of broken down of THC but not having enough it in the body system can cause depression which keep harming so many people out there till today. This THC #chemical can only be found in CANNABIS.



It is Almost like 2018 is for #Cannabis carnival as different countries start legalizing it. What other proof does people need if not for them to do research?!.

Anyway, I think the problem is solve already but I am not sure, which is while I am posting this. I think we should stop using the slogan (Smoke, Get paid&Repeat) whenever we are making any promotional post, picture or anything else for the project. It seems we are doing drawing people closer but in other word, it is pushing some away from the project. Probably maybe we should be using some words which will make others want to read about the project. I don't know but I believe someone is getting my point here?!. We are not changing the slogan because of any hullabaloo, But maybe we should be using it among ourselves who understand what this is made for.


Also When making an article and thinking of SEO, let be adding some benefit of the platform to the article, this will also be help to the platform in one way or the other because if SEO truly work for you, then you are in some help for people who will be researching about the project. I want to say more but this pen need to be charge.



Your opinion are welcome about this please. Let solve it together. And you may not up-vote this post but please share the post for more people to join and contribute to this. Thanks you!

I truly agree on the "smoke,get paid repeat, It is not the best slogan and so many people hold that get paid to much.

I really like "smoke grow repeat" just my 2 cents on that part. It can work for the cannabis and the token part.

·

could be viewed as an endorsement of illegally growing though, no? Needs to be a wordwide compatible slogan perhaps?

·
·

Could Be Grow your stake, But that might be a hard one to prove what you mean. your right

·
·

@jessica said "Grow, Get stoned and Repeat". I think this is nice

·
·

Another good point there @indica. 👌

·

Smoke, grow and repeat look awesome, if I haven't read about this project, I will also think almost the same thing people are thinking but my pain in as is that people don't even give a damn to research.

·
·

name and slogan doesn't really matter, you found smoke and understood it from different perspective.
we all found smoke and wants to use it the way its beneficial to us.
i joined the platform for different reasons

One which was my love for blockchain and promoting chain especially rare projects like cannabis research. other which is because of affiliated from beyondbitcoin.
the truth is everyone on smoke now are the true smokers, cause right now smoke coin has no high benefits and very difficult to sell, i won't be saying we all are here for the coin, what if thw coin never get valuable we envisioned it.

thing is, i think the right people haven't really found the platform, i don't know but i have a feeling that there are two things making the platform looks kinda empty.

This is,

based on the platform being built on a blockchain, many knows it operates on a chain, so everyone wants to post for the benefit they can get, supposedly it was just an ordinary website like Facebook then the real users emerge

or probably the awareness and media presence became so low after the Ico and no follow up promo went on.

I just think the right people have gotten the message, if they have they all be here for the smoke initiatives and not 100% rewards.

I have previously shared my struggles with the slogan.

I totally agree about that. But it’s a catchy one too.

I think it will mostly be a matter of educating. Just like we want to and will educate the vast masses who come out of curiosity because there’s so much to learn and so much awesome of this healthy plant many don’t know.

·

Thank you brother, I personally never believed this is so much healthy benefits until I start reading and doing research on most things I read here. The slogan suppose to be bring people in but in some case, it is a bullet in the leg. 😂😂

·

Educating is the key, there is nothing wrong with the slogan, the slogan makes it easy to attract more smokers and non smokers but the problems are we are attracting more non. smokers than smokers.
we haven't really find ways to send this message to the right demographics.

·
·

The slogan is wrong on oh so many levels. If you invite people with ‘get paid’, then you invite all [wrong] behavior that will eventually entail.

Related: see Steem.

No doubt the "smoke get paid repeat" slogan is really catchy, but its really not that healthy to the community if it draws people to only come for rewards. We need people that are here for the community and for the "weed" reward comes afterward.
I suggest we go with "grow get stoned repeat" for promotional uses(will be using them for my smoke twitter promotions henceforth) then our normal slogan for official purposes. My thoughts though

·

Grow, Get stoned & Repeat. is awesome but if people that are not smoking but know what it mean see it, the same feeling will start again. But to tell the fact here. It is best we have for now (as it removed the Smoke and get paid), thanks so much as you bring solutions to this.

·

In one way you are right, that it might deceive people

Steemit for example is, blog,vote and earn. and well there is a earn part but yes it blew.

we have a great slogan what we need is dedication and keep promoting the platform and wait for the bull run and see how many smokers you all find 😂 😂

In case you haven't encounter one of the issue I am talking about before. Last year some one posted on reddit about smoke.io that it is a platform built by smoker for the smoker and to earn smoke coin. A place where illegal drug are been smoker and people motivating their self for doing so.

Also another one happened recently when I suggested smoke for Binance, A guy did not read my tweet very well before he blow up his foot. I wonder what he might be thinking of but I calm myself I and some people from here also replied him. Thanks to @betgames and @skylinebuds on this.

I suggested in @marshallife post that; How about we start using something like, "Dear #cannabis users, We learn and teach about the goodness of marijuana on #Dpos and get rewarded with #cryptocurrency". when doing promotional for the platform? It could be something else but I am posting this an example.

·

To be honest, I wouldn’t worry too much about “those people”.

We will never be able to convince/convert everyone. We can achieve more by focusing on those who are curious about the topic and want to learn than by spending energy on those who are spreading negativism and FUD. Even if it ever becomes legal everywhere for medical use... there will still be stigmatization happening.

·
·

Many people have blinkers on when it comes to any crypto than their mainly held crypto, likewise many people have a brainwashed view towards Cannabis which might trigger unwarranted illogical criticism, best way past this is education 👌

This is the exact problem we need a solution for, Indica just brake it down. But I think what channel their minds into ours is that the slogan, some other things might put in though.

·
·
·
·

It’s important to understand though that we will always be criticized by few vocals ones [who don]t know better]. Do not let those few annoy you.

Take a step back, look at the larger picture and remember to maintain a healthy perspective. There’s stubborn idiots everywhere, the energy we give them is energy we do not have available for others.

I agree with this,. Some people are good at promotional stuff, they are 80-90% who this post is directed to. The slogan is used to motivate people to like to check on the platform and see something better but what we want to channel their minds to is not what some are seeing.

I agree that many people probably misunderstood tm what the slogan is about. It's a good slogan but people always look for the little non-existant words between the lines. I agree with @skylinebuds. Smoke grow repeat might be a better solution to the problem. Damn I'll have to do some changes to my cartoon intro. It says the Smoke get paid repeat slogan on it. Resmoked.

·

Thanks for contributing buddy. And sorry for the cartoon 😀😅, we just have to start fixing things from now On for better future.

·

That sucks, Can be alpha or beta art.

·
·

😂 😂 🤣 🤣

I would like to smoke in bittrex would be great to make exchange there, besides that smoke already works with the blockchain of bitshares.org, it would be better positioned in terms of price

·

This your comments make it seems like you read the back of your phone. Joe why? 😂😫😫

·
·

Best.comment... in this thread. 😂

·
·
·

🙈🙈🙉

Well there are a lot of challenges but good thing is that if we give time to certain problem it starts giving solution itself and i think same would happen here. Just let this go for a while and the system would purify itself.

·

Damn! I don't believe in this words 😂... I like facing my problem, break it down and solve it. Leave it kwa! 😀 never. 😅

·
·

There are alot of different ways to tackle problems. You just have a more aggressive approach to deal with them.

Technically we pay each other, no?

·

yes we do, when we buy and power up

·

Yes, we pay, or should I say smoke pay. We are getting paid truly.

yea alot of people get misconception about the smoke blockchain, but i think its our duty to properly educate them, you can always drag the horse to the river but its the choice of the horse to either drink from it or stare at the water, the truth is no matter the slogan you use, those who wants to criticize will always criticize, but the get paid gives some kind of misconception as they think immediately u sign up u start making huge dough with out contributing anything to the platform, but left to me i will like to concentrate more on the price of smoke because if the price goes up, most people will jump into it because they are all in for the money, especially some people in Africa, South America and asia, just pump the price of smoke to $0.5 and you will see massive sign up and more critics, remember when the price of steem was pump, we all witnessed the massive sign up and when the price dump, they all abandoned it and moved on, i just put them on my mute list. i will keep promoting it as best as i could and keep smoking hot post more.

·

but the get paid gives some kind of misconception as they think immediately u sign up u start making huge dough.

Some even think all they need to do is to light even ciga and boom they start earning 😂😂, what a pathetic thinking. What most of them failed to understand is that "education is the best legacy. Here is the only place where you can get lectures about the goodness of MJ and earn some money for doing so.

·
·

True but you know the saying that if you want to hide a treasure and keep it hidden put it in writing. We have so many lazy readers and writers who won't want to put in any effort but wants to earn

·
·
·

Gbam! That's the proverb that fit this situation, people don't want to read about what they want to earn from.

everything i have read here is true but it all goes down to how many of us can educate people who arw new and who wants to learn about the platform? 😶

the name Smoke has a very long history and many people don't see it the way we do.

i have told several people smoke isn't just for smokers alone but for researchers, art and what have you for cannabis?

the platform has alot to offer. but people are shallow minded. our best bet will be when smoke moon to 1usd.
Then see the real smokers emerge but before then let's promote the platform in every ways.

·

Exactly my point the price of the coin has to speak for it. Just 0.5$ and u will see massive influx of people. To me is to buy more and get in more investors, to buy in and you will see the right people coming in.

·

Very nice view mate. Kudos 👌

This all depends of what specific population you would like to target!

It is hard to create universal slogan that will attract wide audience. Depending on population we should use different ones.

If you attract artists.
Smoke, create, share.

Smoke, get paid, repeat is good for smoke/ws/weku type of audience.

Growers are obviously attracted by word grow.

Dispensaries might notice something like smoke, advertise, spread or grow.

... You get my point.
But, why don't we use whatever suits best for our audience (I am not talking about myself as I don't have any)
Some words to consider are engage, share, learn, educate, inspire, legalize, free speach or something that is pointing out decentralization.

This is just something I can think of. We can make survey or something to swith the middle of the slogan as it is clearly the thing that is bothering most of the people.

I think we should focus on promoting what people can do here and what are benefits, rather that what they can earn or get.

Also, there is a lot on back of developers as there is much more things that should be implegmented like data base of strains, dispensaries, some world map of current status of legalisation, how can you buy, where, sucsess of outdoor grow, prices...
Is anybody reading this? Hope so,maybe someone gets some ideas.

·

SURE! More than one person is reading this, understanding maybe different though. I like your output to this case, and those examples you gave are worth looking at twice. Like you said, "it depend on the kind of audience we want to attract", and yes, we can't just use any slogan, in fact the one we are using before is great and good not until when those guys are only seeing the middle word on it.

Those example you gave worth looking at, what really need is to remove the word smoke and get paid, then maybe put something educative or freedom words in place of them. People who earn will surely preach the earn, but when they get here, they should see that some work is required before one can earn too. It is easy to choose to good slogan, I respect the inventor of our slogan but if I will advice I will say it should be some kind of legalization or educative words like you said. Thanks Psyceratopsb.

I think we might not be able to purge "those set of people" even if we change the slogan. If they have a wrong motive when they come no matter what the slogan is they will always mess up! i will just say we should concentrate more on encouraging more cannabis centered posts and in that way we will frustrate those who came here for a quick buck without research entirely.

Thank You For This.

·

why would we want to purge any already recruited users? :/

·

This is not about users who have an an account already it is about people who have not even know about us at all. So that when they hear about us, they will think this is a community for smoker. (smoker like even it is mat stick that is burn to produce smoke, it still make the burner a smoker).

Thank god for curation. The more people join the better. Sooner or later they will understand how this platform works. Everyone has a learning curve. If someone is serios about Smoke it shows.
The slogan for me is just fine.

·

And yes, some people join this platform because of money and then start seeing some goodness around it then they fell in love. This is a bad way of getting love as it may affect they whole system though. Some don't even care or give a damn about the money at all.

·
·

Where there is money to be made, there's always going to be people who will try to game the system. But with Smoke we have a real chance to pick the best authors and give an axample to the newcomers. Fair distribution is the key.

·
·
·


Good point mate.

·
·

It has always been all about the money and I won't get it twisted. Smoke should be listed on other exchange and not just Dex. Alot of crypto-currency traders don't use DEX but I think Dex bot will be a game changer

·
·
·

Team are still doing best to get smoke on other exchange. They are trying, and I believe we should see positive effect soon.
