Have you heard about Steemit's Weedcash pseudo-fork?
Steemit posts can give users weedcash "weed" tokens by adding the "weedcash" tag. Users are rewarded these tokens in Steem Engine and the staked tokens produce 5.5% yield.
Weedcash pays in 4-days and gives 50/50 curation compensation like Smoke does. Have you tried Weedcash? Will this compete with Smoke or bring more awareness?
