📄 What is 'State of the Witnesses' ?
State of the witnesses will be a regular update provided to the community on the status of the Smoke.io witnesses. The intent is to keep members informed of what is happening on the platform and what witnesses are doing. It is important that members of the community vote for witnesses that represent them and are driving the platform in the right direction. These updates are not intended to be all inclusive, but should only be a portion of the information used for your decision making.
In addition to the overall status, each update will also feature one witness in the "Witness Spotlight". This will allow the community to get a deeper look into the person/group behind the witness and how they play a part in Smoke.io.

⭐️ Witness Spotlight - @d00k13 ⭐️
📌 Why have you decided to be a witness on the Smoke.io?
I want to learn more about the technology which has helped me in finding a therapeutic outlet through content creation in a way that support the network and increases my ability to support authors.
📌 What is your background and how does that make you a good witness?
I have little over a years worth of content creation under my belt and have done some minor maintenance
on gaming servers, currently running my own server operating as an IPFS node and witness from home. I
believe that I make a good witness due to my desire to engage and support authors. I may never learn
enough to contribute code directly but all projects need their loyal supporters and I am that!
📌 What excites you most about being a witness?
Knowing I am doing my part in contributing to the maintenance of the blockchain which makes everything
📌 What are your goals as a witness?
See SmokeTube become a reality one way or another!
📌 Are you involved in any projects outside of Smoke.io that you would like to share with us?
I am involved mostly on Steem & DTube as founder of #OneLoveDTube, I'd like to share it with you
as it is the legacy of a years worth of posting there. Our community slogan "We Will Get There Together!" says everything about me, I am all about supporting and the strength of community.
📌 Do you think Smoke.io has an important role in the broader cannabis community? If so, why?
Everyone needs a place where they fit in and suites them, so yes, those whom are interested in cannabis
while also being interested in crypto, or like myself the tech running the whole show, can find a welcoming
place to air their opinions while not needing to worry about censorship due to genre.
📌 Where do you see Smoke.io in the future?
I can see how with the right spokesperson it could easily become a central hub for nearly anything cannabis
related including online stores and the like using SMOKE for purchases.
📌 What do you see as the biggest challenge for Smoke.io and how do you think it should be addressed?
Biggest challenge is the stigmatism around what our niche community is built around, weed. Only way
to address it is by continuing to support advocacy furthering the understanding of mediicinal uses
📌 If you had to vote for only one witness (not yourself) who would it be and why?
@cannaweedness, well bumping into @unnamed in the discord server and reading his opinion on the matter
of promoting smoke.io I get a sense of integrity which says a lot about potential vision had.
📌 Tell the community why you deserve their vote?
I have no intention of powering down earned rewards as I wish to increase my ability to support
others, that is SMOKE that will stay off of exchanges and not contribute to downwards selling pressure. I
would say most importantly I am a content creator, and my becoming a witness is evidence that anyone can do it, by voting for me your furthering that encouragement for others to travel the foot steps behind me in become a witness.
👏 Thank you @d00k13 for taking the time to answer these questions and share your thoughts with the community.
