First Post on Palnet But Second 'Experience' Of A SCOT Community

in #palnet2 years ago (edited)


This is my first post on Palnet, but Palnet is not the first SCOT (Smart Contract Organizational Token) 'community' I have checked out.

My main account is @barge on Steem. I have decided to use @krunkypuram to engage with SCOT communities. I do not know how I will engage or what I will post about, nor have I any idea how many different communities I may post to. I do not need to know the answers to these subsequent stages at the very outset - I don't think anyone can answer this question just now anyway :D.

The other SCOT community I have been posting to from this account is The Weedcash Network. Both of these spaces are new and there are going to be plenty more of them coming for sure.

I would like to observe, experiment, learn, dip toes and limbs in the water and generally keep this content separate from my main account. I like this splitting solution and find it neat as per my way of doing things. This approach also gives me flexibility.

Anyhow, my experience with Weedcash has been pretty good. I do smoke pot so finding stuff to post ain't difficult lol and I'm up to almost 1000 WEED tokens. I have staked (powered up) them all and have been using up my daily votes through the WCN interface. The process is smooth, although there is a slightly longer transaction time than what one is used to on Steem, due of course to the extra layer that this technology represents.

I'm interested to experience this relative compartmentalisation of the Steem blogging experience through posting in different SCOT community interfaces. For example, I expect this post to be visible on the steem blockchain but not on the Weedcash Network, just as none of my WCN posts are visible here. This is logical of course, but experiencing it in this way gives me a sense of just how targeted this could become with pockets and niches of interest here and there beginning to develop and grow. The one big open space of the Steem blockchain remains as is, but to it are added the different sub-spaces each with their own customised way of doing things, hidden from each other when inside the individual space yet at the same time visible to all on the Steem blockchain (ie at parent level). How these cultures develop in the coming while will be fascinating in itself!

Some Palnet features (check out Aggroed's post for more details):

  • 7 day payout
  • rewards are 50-50
  • unstaking (powering down) in 4 weekly installments totaling 28 days
  • you get 10 votes per day and voting power recharges 20% per day
  • there is a downvote pool - 1 free downvote per day
  • to get a vote which receives PALcoin the post has to include palnet as a tag
  • Keychain works for logging in and no extra sets of credentials are required

Excellent work @aggroed and co! Thank you all for the vision you have encoded into 1s and 0s! We'll all have tokens and abundance coming out of our free and decentralised ears before long, no FOMO required!


Did we moon yet?

Ha ha, looks like the rocket fuel is still being injected into the various transporters........readying for take off it seems, once the time for that ignition spark (or dropped ciggy/joint butt) comes. Heard a rumour that Bellarmy is standard reading for would-be mooners, but that might just be my clogged ears :D (d/loaded, not yet read).

Moon! Moon! Moon!

You might like this one, too.

That's the one I have read (as @barge :) and enjoyed very much

Good deal, too few readers in this world, for me.

Here is another good one.
It predates many they bring up, but never gets mentioned.
I found it in a small library i read my way through.

I really enjoyed 'Call of the Wild' when I was younger. This looks interesting, thanks again for the reads :D

Yeah, that guy got around, for sure.

Good to see you checking this out @krunkypuram.

👍 👏 👏

Thanks for the thanks, and for taking a look at what this could become. I'm excited to see you've tried it out. A good way to think of it is like a companion and expansion to Steem!

Compartmentalization is a great way to describe the ability to do more, more effectively on the Steem blockchain~ everything you do here will be reflected on Steem interfaces as well; if you hold PALcoin staked, it's like powering up your Steem into SP. It will allow you to allocate rewards in both tokens while voting on content all over this front end, and all Steem front ends if the palnet tagged is used. Overall, we're just really excited to try to get people excited about engaging, sharing, and being social again. It's a big experiment that we're pretty stoked to be be a part of, so thanks for the cool idea of making an account and diving in!


I have noticed that on palnet the lag for upvote transactions is much less than on Weedcash Network. Interesting observation given that they are both layers on top of Steem. There is also a lag when claiming WEED tokens, wonder if that is absent on palnet too!

Thanks for the thanks for the thanks, and for dropping a comment :D............this 'space' is really cool and has so much expandability! I'm really glad I'm here at the outset for this could get pretty tricky to wrap one's head around once the system matures and fractalises in the manner that seems possible and likely.

Good luck with moving forward and getting this party going 🔆
