As we approach block # 1 million, the community keeps on surprising us every day and we are proud to call all of you part of the Smoke fam. Keep on engaging, creating awesome content, and spreading the word about the Smoke Network!
Together we can create a safe space free from the corporations that seek to destroy our liberties and freedom in exchange for their own profits. For the first time, cannabis users have a place to create value together and grow as a community without worrying about their pages being shut down or content being removed, all the while pushing forward tolerance towards the plant and breaking the stereotype. To read the latest interview with the founder, @stoner check out the latest post by @jah.
Deploying The First Portion of the Reserve Fund
As per our original coin distribution 50% of our total supply where put up for sale during our main ICO. During the main public sale we sold 2,936,790 Smoke coins leaving 18,063,210 coins in our reserve. The terms of our ICO included that If the hardcap is not reached by the end of the sale all remaining SMOKE coins will be placed into a foundation trust whereby it will be distributed to new users that sign up to the Smoke.Network and add influence or value. This has been done in the form of the @reserve account.
There are many ways these coins can add value.
Some of the ways in which we plan to utilize this fund is to:
Funding Smoke.io and community projects with vests that aim to foster growth within the community.
Vest a portion to make sure we have a stake earning interest to fund future signup, roadmap goals and community endeavors.
To offer VC and large investors coins at the market rate via OTC trades. (If you are looking to purchase a large amount of stake in the network contact us at [email protected])
Bounties for development, exchange listings, and community tasks.
Today we are excited to deploy 2.1m SMOKE POWER that will be used to fund the Smoke.io Cannasseur Programme through the @cannasseur account and over the next few days will start to vest a portion of the @reserve SMOKE to fund future account signups and long-term roadmap goals.

A reminder to Curators
A big part of the success of the Smoke Network and it's products is up to community curators and anyone can become a curator by simply spending some time looking for great content to upvote. If the majority acts responsibly, keeping the content focused on the core goals set by the development team Smoke.io has the potential to become the go-to place for exciting cannabis-related news and content.
