Why are you here?
What is the reason you have signed up for smoke? You wanna know why I did? I am going to explain to you in this post why I signed up and think that smoke will be the BIGGEST powerhouse in the cannabis space for many things like Growing, Reviews, Nugporn, Seeds, Strain information. and why it is so IMPORTANT we stay on task to keep smokes NICHE on cannabis.
Okay, This is going to be a post that is a bit on the long side, One the main reason's for this is the fact so many people are here for the rewards more than the platform and have not even taken the time to read the information over on smoke.network like the white paper and the pitch deck.
The worlds first blockchain cannabis social network and ecosystem.
Smoke.Network is a social network and ecosystem tailored for the cannabis community and
powered by the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) blockchain and SMOKE is the coin that
Our first minimal viable product (MVP), Smoke.io has launched allowing the public to take ownership of the network.
Quoted from the smoke.network,
This is explaining that smokes focus is to serve the cannabis community, The is not saying we can only have cannabis users here but if they are not here for the cannabis community they should only be here for education purpose, Not for the rewards, Not to post about your Cat,Dog,Family, and not if your here for none cannabis content only.
let me explain in my opinion, What some of that means so you can see the reason why I want smoke to succeed and why it will if WE ALL stay on the NICHE of smoke(Cannabis Culture).
Introduction to smoke
This first part here explains just what I did above, The reason behind smoke is to give a place for the cannabis community to come and have a place to share cannabis content like grows and nugporn reviews on strains and companies that grow and supply your cannabis, Also a general place for like-minded Cannabis people to call home.
I am going to explain my reason the cannabis community wants to have a place like smoke, The cannabis community as most of you know are pushed out and left like rag dolls, Places like Instagram , twitter, facebook and even youtube hand out bans to cannabis accounts every day. Even tags like nugporn are banned on Instagram but I can search tits and see some no problem. Do you see what the problem in this? We are scrutinized for smoking a wonderful plant.
Here is the pitch desk on why cannabis?
Feature smoke will offers
Did you know you own your account?
Yes, You are hear and you likely know this by now RIGHT? You know when you saved the keys when you signed up also them same ones that are in your wallet section,(Please save these) That is all your information for your account, Meaning you are the only one that is in control of the account and the keys.
As a cannabis user, I am sure you have heard of leafly, weedmaps? These are the go-to places right now for strain reviews and dispensary reviews, Well what if I told you most them reviews are all bought? and guess what weedmaps and leafly may delete a review if they wanted to for whatever reason they find fit, Here on smoke we as a community get to pick what reviews are true and worthy of a spot on smoke, everyone that is posting a legit review can be earning and not worry about getting the review deleted if the company don't like it. ( A company on smoke can flag the comment but people can see this and ask why. This will help with the end user trust the company and they will not be able to hide the review)
This will be for both strain reviews as well as the dispensary you got this strain from, So you may be able to do a review of the place and WHEN they sign up and they give a bonus to their customers via an upvote (IF THEY OFFER THAT) who knows but this is a feature that is truly limitless if a dispensary is spreading its awareness.
This will also work for the Grower, We can get a review of the places that grow the cannabis so we can see the best places that grow our CANNABIS. They could also be doing regular updates on the crops they are working on. This could help cut the cost of a grow and in turn cut the cost that you pay for your cannabis cause they could earn smoke from upvotes and in return exchange the smoke for equipment.
Not only is smoke a social network, but It is a decentralized one, What does this mean for you and me, maybe nothing, What does this mean for a CANNABIS activist? Well it means they can be doing the activism worldwide and we all can be able to back them, People in legal places can be on here giving opinions and helping to fund these people that are standing up to the government getting arrested and most times end up in jail, Just to help spread the cause that CANNABIS and HEMP are not bad plants like the world is viewing it.
This is also another thing that people like you and me that want, So we have a place to learn how to grow and have many many questions along the way, You can jump on to smoke and find the right kind of grow your doing from hydro, deep water culture, soil, and who knows what else people are growing with along the way, To get the right info that the community have upvoted as good trusted content.
Who doesn't like the rewards? This is going to part of the reason smoke is going to be a huge success. Smoke coins as you all know is what powers your smoke account to give you a higher stake in the network. The thing is if you're investing into smoke you should be using your stake to keep the content on cannabis and the culture. This goes back to that part that companies and high stakeholders that are here because we are a focus on the cannabis community don't want to see people's cat, dog, family photos, etc so we should be rewarding the right things now and not off niche posts( Maybe at a later date this will also work but for now we need to stay on cannabis culture only)
When you all finally take the time to go over and read the smoke pitch deck you are going to see a lot more then I talked about or shared with you in this post but I was solely focusing on the stuff that I feel we need to address with everyone from WITNESS to CURATORS to EVERYONE that wants smoke to succeed.
Now that I have written this post and told you why I think smoke will be a success and why you should take the time to go read the information over on smoke.network to gain more knowledge about smoke and the goals it has. I would like to ask everyone that is reading this to help do your part and keep smoke on the NICHE of cannabis and we can have a huge platform.
