The Blockchain isn't a get rich quick plan

13 days ago

It can be if you have lots of money to invest

But then you are already rich and you just are trying to increase your wealth. That should be everyone's goal in the long run to increase their wealth. But if you are here expecting that your wealth is going to increase over night you are going to be disappointed. If you are mad that some people have had the money to invest in the platform and not just earn rewards from creating content, curating and making comments, get over it because without investors, those of us who are trying to earn wouldn't be earning shit.

We are currently in a recession

Main Stream Media is finally talking about it a little bit but we have been in a recession for nearly 2 years now, but it is deepening and MSM is finally talking about it. If you invest in cryptos or in stocks you see it in most industries where stocks are down from what they were in 2017 as is cryptos. But it is okay because after the recession is over with if you strap in and focus you will be heavily rewarded is my belief, because that is what has happened throughout history. This is the time to HODL and earn as much as you can. As the earnings are low with the price down on smoke and other sites like steemit meaning you actually earn more of the coin. HODL out till the recession is over and watch your holdings increase in value.

But don't cry about he or she makes more rewards than I do

If they have an account worth more of course they are going to make more rewards. If they have money to invest of course they are gonna make more, as our vote is connected to what our Smoke Power is, and the more smoke power you have the more rewards it gives, when you curate you get some of that back as you gain more and more of course some accounts especially the ones that have had money to invest is going to be worth a lot more than those who are earning it through each written word.

Be happy there are people who have had money to invest

Because they really are the reason we get to make rewards as that investment money is what adds the monetary value to the site, the content creates a value too it brings people to the site, but without those investors we wouldn't be rewarded for that content. So if you are one of the investors that have invested your money to the site thank you and if you are a content creator keep up the good work.

Be patient

Because good things come to those who wait, and if you work hard now and post regularly, focusing on building your community and not focusing on what others have you will eventually get to where you want to be. And remember to gain wealth there is hard work involved, if someone says something is a get you rich quick, run they are the only one getting rich. Till next time stoners it's 4:20 somewhere so puff puff pass.

when I joined Smoke I meet a lot of people from my country and in Africa. Nigerians used to be part of the most active users of this platform at a time, but many left as soon as the price of the coin went down. I felt bad. it wasn't JUST about the reward to me, I love the fact I had a voice and I can freely talk about my drug use without being vulnerable or weak.

I came out green, no panic or fear of the law. Being here is just the best thing that ever happened to me regardless.

I became a better writer just from this platform. Went from puny to brawny. My English written communication was so poor before now, but presently I even write articles for different crypto and cannabis blog/website for $5-$15 (500-2000 words). https://t.co/wCcVpbWcUO?amp=1

I know I am not yet fit to be called a writer or a prolific one.

Just because I need to stay updated I have read more books this year about Drug and cannabis than in my entire life. From the little book of cannabis, the cannabis manifesto, to high to fail, How to change your mind by Micheal Polland, The Havard psychedelic club, Tell Your Children: The Truth About Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence, Cannabis Pharmacy, Grinspoon Peter Free_Refill, Drugs and Mental illness, The concept of psychiatry, Our daily Med and I still have more to read before this year run out.

When I wrote about Steve De Angelo he contacted me on twitter and we talked about him coming to Nigeria next year which we are presently working on.

I also joined "The Association for the legalization of Medical Marijuana" in Nigeria. They sued the federal government this year and they are planning to do that again by next year. I got all this opportunity because i shared my smoke post on twitter.

Saw drug and drug addict from a place of love than judgement. I became open-minded because of smoke.io

anytime I see the consistency with folks like @psyceratopsb, @lordoftruth @ZuculuZ, Jackdub, @unnamed and you QueenOfSmoke I just keep writing and I don't think i will look back.

is there a time I felt bad that I do not get properly rewarded? Yes, I won't lie about that. But one thing is for sure I keep telling myself it isn't about the reward alone. The engagement, the motivating comment on my post, the fact people even understand and commend me for my writeup is huge enough. My limbic system is already messed up with writing post on smoke. I visit here more than any other social media platform including twitter, facebook and Instagram.

Presently working on a writers blockchain book which will include smoke platform. If not for this platform will i even think of writing a book at all? Nah. I won't.

No one owes you anything, stay consistent and you will be rewarded. if you are new go check out @lordoftruth profile you will be amazed how steady he is and how his reward grew also.

If you here for the money fine, but you will be frustrated at the end.

if you here because you love cannabis and the uncensored chain operation then you will be happy.

I wrote almost a complete post as a comment.
I am so sorry Technosgirl.

Don't be sorry, I ended up writing this after someone was in my DM complaining they didn't think they were getting fair rewards and the thing is no one owes anyone anything and if you get mad because someone didn't give you 100% upvote maybe it is because they are trying to spread out the vote. Anyways the DM I got is what inspired this post and rant. Since you joined the platform I have watched you grow as a writer and I agree your English has improved rapidly.

I appreciate. English isn't my first language so I am really glad someone like you can see the effort I put into making my English/posts better.

Well... I look forward to how they’re going to feel when the platform has 50 daily creators, 200, 500 and the reward pool is the same ~8k SMOKE/day for creators and curators.

Right now is the time to accumulate. Because when legalization happens and those of us one the DL talking about our illegal activities can go public with the site a ton of people will join.

Yup and the daily pool doesn’t change in size.

Tbh as someone who has for years paid people [in fiat] to post content, as well as invested every month in marketing, traffic, promotion, and team so revenue could support the transaction “get paid”... I would sometimes love to hear to what people think their content is actually worth in a “fair” market.

Or how much they think they could achieve in 12 months of blogging on their own site.

In either case the majority would suddenly feel different about the rewards they earn on these sites. Totally different because the paid scene is cutthroat.

I’ve written about it before: the real benchmark is 48SMOKE/post. Or what a top 20 witness earns every day from their actual investment to keep the network going.

I live in the small corner of reality where something is better than nothing. I left FB a decade or more ago and never looked back for two reasons:

  1. No Trust - they betray thei user base for me tardy gain
  2. How much content on FB shows up on your search results? It’s a steel trap with no air holes

A penny for my thoughts is still far more than FB pays and when I was on Google plus since beta and watched it crawl to a nosedive and plummet - this tiny community feels cozy... and it’s not likely to ‘turn off’ suddenly as G+ did. (Sorry for the edits, trying to think, write and put two kids to bed )
That’s benefits aside! The rewards are great, especially after the math is laid out, but even better that we can all share it with our fellow creators. I had at one time about 105k monthly views on a Pinterest site, mostly from online curators not on Pinterest. Smoke.io has pretty nice placement for content on Google search and people pay damn good money for that sort of exposure.

This.

Smoke.io has pretty nice placement for content on Google search and people pay damn good money for that sort of exposure.

There already are some SEO writers who occasionally contribute to Smoke. We haven’t reached tipping point yet tho but that is definitely a demographic which will grow. And, if, some of those also actually care about the topic... they will definitely carve a corner in the daily content creation niche on smoke and thus also get their share from the pool.

There’s some people here who totally don’t grasp how this is a golden opportunity right now and how creation now, not whining, will support them to grow “OG style”. It’s only going to get harder to earn tokens.

And I should tell myself that too and publish more. :D

Heard that loud and clear.
I have had a tough week but I’ll be back on the grindstone.. I like to well-up the content and let things marinade. I’m not a daily social online user...it’s overload for a kid raised in the 90s when you had to go to a library to get online. Now, here we are getting rewarded for thoughts and as you mentioned with such a great portion of the overall pool... who can complain? We are all investors by contribution. /nudges FB for fleecing their users and likely to soon take data to China. We all have a great opportunity to grow here and that’s exactly why I try to create my best content here. It’s also the reason I enjoy earning here - look at some of this content 🔥 It literally is getting better and that will continue as we all push each other. 🤘😎 1+1=3 (synergy)

So very true, thanks.

Because good things come to those who wait, and if you work hard now and post regularly, focusing on building your community and not focusing on what others have you will eventually get to where you want to be

This has always been my way of thinking too! Wok hard when times are rough and it will all pay off eventually.

Patience is key
