Whats up Green-Lovers,
I'm reading myself thru the Smoke Whitepaper again, and man they did some great updates to it. Probably, I should have checked it sooner, but if you guys are familiar with the Steem-Reward System than some things here seems to be the same.
Well, like I just discovered they are not!!! Smoke-Network uses the new User-Authority Model (page 28 whitepaper) introduced by @scipio from Steem. What is so special about it? Well many Users of Steem complained about the trashy content on the Trending Pages, and the new User UA-Model is going to change that.
How is that going to be achieved? It all starts with the guardians and workers of our Smoke-Blockchain the Witnesses. They are the most important, reputable and respected members of the Smoke-Blockchain. They run the hardware and software to make things happen here.
In order, to keep up the quality of our Trending page high, the UA-Model takes your Smoke Power and your followers into account to determine how valuable your vote and influence is. That means, if you have more Smoke Power and have good followers, that are close to the Witnesses or people with great influence like @stoner or @smokers420, than your vote and influence will rise. That also means, if you have lower Smoke-Power, but great influence in the network, you still will be noticed in the Trending Posts.
downvotable(user) bool = (UA(user) >= UA(threshold)) ? true : false
Implement UA to curate monetary rewards (author / curation):
upvote_reward = UA * SP
At one point, you are also able to downvote spammers and low quality content, if your UA-score is high enough. That is a great incentive for all newcomers to get your starting right.
Vote for Witnesses like I did there are great examples out there like @blckchnd @murda-ra @nathansternx @blackman @powerpicswitness @skylinebuds @smokeasaurusrex @smokinghotnish @bbq-iguana @bangzi or @chronocrypto but also check all others too!!! And they will really appreciate your support!
Get involved, with the issues they have and comment on their posts!!!
Lets do things better here than on other Social-Media Blockchains.
Since, I also have to get used to this new system, I appreciate every comment, help and suggestions from you guys on this topic!!!
Stay tuned for more updates and lets get that green smoking!
