"Smoke.Network is a decentralized application that incentivizes users to contribute to the network through ownership."
So what is the Smoke.Network application?
Smoke.Network is an incentivized, distributed social media application for the cannabis community, that rewards users in cryptocurrency for reviewing strains, interacting, creating content, and engaging others. The rewards are self funding and the application is completely decentralized and owned by the users with an incentive to grow the network together.
Users are able to post images, review strains, share stories as well us up vote, follow and curate others content via a simple up vote or flag system. Users are pseudo anonymous and reputation is based on social trust. Rewards are issued to users who make a subjective contribution to the community.
Currently, user generated content companies such as Facebook and Instagram have allowed large communities to interact, and share their love for cannabis. These platforms, though, are controlled by central authorities and manage the networks rules and content flow, usually resulting in cannabis users being censored or kicked off the platform.
Unlike other popular social networks, Smoke.Network is not controlled by a central authority. There is no single person that can modify the applications rules or governance, or censor any user/s from accessing the application. The network is instead owned by all users and token holders.
Our 450,000 fans are waiting for the Smoke.Network... Are you?
