New Memberships are Now Open!
New memberships are open once again! Be aware that although you can join without asking for your account to be reviewed , delegating and following the trail does not necessarily equal automatic membership if you do not not follow our two rules:
- No hatred or abuse towards anyone
- Promote life, freedom, truth, love, and happiness in all forms.
@dynamicgreentk is no longer a content hunter, but @lindseylambz is now hunting content and writing @freedomtribe’s “Spread the Love” curation reports! @exe8422 continues to be the content hunter for the Spanish community and his curation reports are on @steemamor!
I am putting together what I am currently calling the Chief Council that will start with 7 members as a governing body for how to manage funds and the tribe in general. The council will vote on proposals needing a majority to move forward. The steem and SBD that has been earned so far has been a group effort and I think it is only fair for the group to have an opportunity to have some say on how the funds are used.
We already have the first 7 Chief Council Members!
The number of council positions and who occupies those positions will change based on who the most active tribe members are and how big the tribe gets. The tribe will be limited in its size at some point, as will the size of the council, most likely at a max of 21 members much like the Steem Witnesses.
Proposals that the council will vote on in the future may include:
- Growth fund proposals detailing how to use funds
- Eligibility for receiving Freedom Tribe endorsement
- Applicants to join the tribe
We won’t need participation from all council members all the time, but we would need at least 4 yes votes to move forward on proposals. Participation would of course be limited to the amount of time the council member has to give. If they were not able to vote on several proposals in a row, we could simply rotate in a more active tribe member through voting.
We have developed a steady, sustainable growth plan that allows for at least 50,000 to 100,000 Steem Power in delegations from members and supporters in the first year. At that point we will have more powerful upvotes that will be controlled by a council of members whose stated goal is to support life, freedom, truth, love, and, happiness in all forms!
There are people in many places in the world that can and are drastically affected by upvotes that have real value for them. One of the awesome powers of Steem is the history and continued dedication to getting Steem into the hands of people all over the world that can benefit the most from it.
Upgrades to the Tribe
@Mariannewest has given us two genius ideas and we are moving forward with both of them.
Spread the Love with Your Delegation!
Now, when you join Freedom Tribe, not only can you receive rewards for your delegation, you can choose accounts that you want to support by allocating some or even all of your delegation/rewards to support them!
Support Organizations and People that are clearly making a Positive Impact
We will research charitable organizations, provide a report, and give members the option to delegate small amounts of SP to support these vetted projects. The goal would be to become a kind of crowdfunding support system for charity and non-profit organizations.
@freedomtribe Witness Proxy
Freedom Tribe is a new Steem community that promotes life, freedom, truth, love, and happiness. We support witnesses that support our values and our projects like @steemfestdreams.
The witnesses that @freedomtribe currently votes on are:
@gtg, @jesta, @roelandp, @timcliff, @ausbitbank, @aggroed, @xeldal, @riverhead, @busy.witness, @pharesim, @teamsteem, @nextgencrypto, @arcange, @fyrst-witness, @steempress, @complexring, @mahdiyari, @enginewitty, and @happymoneyman
We expect to fill out the rest of our witness votes over the next few weeks as we continue to research the witnesses that are actively supporting the Steem ecosystem.
To set @freedomtribe as your proxy:
- Go to https://steemit.com/~witnesses
- Scroll down to the bottom, where it says: "You can also choose a proxy that will vote for witnesses for you. This will reset your current witness selection." Underneath that, type "freedomtribe"
- Click SET PROXY and you should see this screen:
