As we are stakeholders of this platform we feel it's important to take part of growing the network. Last week we set up specific plans in our roadmap. In this blog we will discuss one of our plans in detail, which aligns with our mission to impact lives positively through blockchain technology.
Our plan is to spread awareness of Steem through small initiatives. These initiatives could be anything such as a charity deed, direct promotion of Steem or any creative ideas that benefit the society and the Steem platform and will be required to be recorded in video form. We will fund these initiatives through part of our the earnings we receive from our post rewards.
By having many people initiating projects for the good of Steem the awareness for Steem will not only increase through the initiatives themselves, but we believe when we posts the videos on other social media like Youtube, Facebook and Twitter, the chances are that a few of these initiatives will get picked up by a large audience, and if we are lucky go viral.
The good part is that this won't costs much funds to set up. With 5 to 10 steem (about $15 to $30 in current prices) people can do a lot, especially in countries with a weak economy. With our current support we will be able to fund several small initiatives each week.
We believe that people who put in the effort need to be rewarded, so their video will be posted on our blog post and they will receive part of the posting rewards. By posting on our blog we will also create one place where people can see the impact of what people are able to do with a small amount of steem.
To ensure our funds will not be misused, we require the following from our participants:
To be verified and genuine users. This will be decided by us through their blogging activity. In case they have not posted much they can submit verification to us in the form of a photo or video.
Show their face in the video
Mention the date and promo-mentors in the video, so that we know it's not an older video
Show what they have bought with the funds
These requirements are not final and will be adjusted if needed
First of all if you have a small initiative that you want to start contact me (@futurethinker) on Discord.
You can join our team and help with making people aware of our offer.
Support our blogs! The rewards goes to our fund and the team who work hard to build promo-mentors.
If you want to directly help fund the small initiatives you can donate to us in which you "donation for initiatives" in your memo (the other part of our fund is used to find promising steemians).
If you are a big stake holder and want to see certain initiatives happen, contact us and we will discuss with the whole team how we can make it happen. Our core team consists of 15 members from different English and Spanish communities.
