Hello and happy new 2019!
First of all, I like to wish all of you a great year, filled with joy and good vibrations.
I didn't intend to do an introduction post at all, I didn't intend to blog at all, but since my arrival yesterday some people here got concerned, and some, I imagine, were really happy about it, based on the votes and comments I got.
Why I'm here?
There are several reasons why I joined Smoke. I guess the main reason is that I'm really disappointed in Steem. I joined it back in 2016 when it was just a small platform. It kinda reminds me of Smoke right now. There was a small core of dedicated people who were contributing to the platform and it seemed only good thing will come out of it. As we can see today Steem is run by guilds, it's full of voting bots, spam, almost all of the people there are just to grab some easy rewards.
You see, after seeing how a great project turns into trash you start looking for alternatives. I tried many of the newly emerged blockchain social platforms out there like Minds.com and all the small platforms that are being built right now, but they are not managed in the best way and have a long way to go.
Another major reason is that I want to take some of my Steem stake I've accumulated over the past three years into a platform with higher potential. In the course of the next months, I plan to slowly buy smoke tokens and vest them here.
The fact that Smoke is concentrated only in cannabis culture IMO is greatly helpful, as other social media are trying to cover all aspects of life. This creates a highly versatile community that rarely comes to a consensus. I like this idea being focused only on one major topic and building a community around that.
Who am I?
