Yet I am sad to see the vote slider is not enabled... am I wrong with the level at which it should start showing up? Not that I really have any need to use it for posts, more of a thing for voting comments and showing agreement.
Anyways a promise is a promise and I said I would sponsor Smoke.io my first 10k after this 42k milestone and I plan to keep my word 👌 Thank You @HowHigh for the 140 SMOKE to get me started 👍
“Why?” You might ask... and well... it comes down to what am I doing to help this platform? Sure I run a witness and I post and try curate and engage with members as I can but does that help the platform evolve?
No! It merely helps the platform continue to exist.... I see sponsorship as a way of pooling funds for the sake of pushing things forward with financial means...
Is that actually what will come of it? Who knows if my small investment will move things forward but I’m trying anyways... some would say I’m wasting my time and money so yea I’ve heard of the concerns people have with centralization of power but at the same time I recognize that the majority of human beings are not responsible enough to actually embrace what true decentralization means... we may be on a decentralized blockchain but the token supply may very well be currently controlled by a central body... it’s kinda human nature and happens in everything we do... maybe trickle down effect of the financial systems mentality, I dunno.... where I differ from many people is how I perceive that centralization of power, easiest way to get @d00k13 done is to congregate our interests!
I have ideas and plans, hopes and dreams...
- notifications native to smoke.io
- smoke tube integrated on smoke.io
- swag available to purchase in crypto
- mobile apps with push notifications
I know, I know... it will take a lot more than just talk but I’m trying with my limited abilities... as I understand it currently we need developers to implement AppBase on our chain so we can have native Smoke.io notifications which also relates to push notifications... people either need to be interested and do it on their own like I try do just because I move forward with intention to give first then receive or we will have to dish out some cash and pay for it to be done...
I have yet to find anyone interested in taking it on and am still looking for someone to give me a $ they want to do it 🤦♂️ the people I know either lost interest in DPOS systems or are too busy with their own projects... so do you know anyone I could pester? Feel free to send them my way or let me know how I could contact them!
Just remember one thing, this is my will and whether or not it is seen through to reality I will be here doing my thing as long as here remains a thing todo ❤️
Has The Idea Of Being A Witness Crossed Your Mind? For me it started as a desire to learn if I could do it.
Maybe It's Time To Run That Idea Out? I for one will be certain to support in any way I can the new witnesses in their efforts to help maintain the blockchain... hit us up in discord 👌
