From the beginning, we all believe in the word Karma which is acts of doing good or showing kindness to one another especially those really in need. Even though there are many ways we can engage in karma and help others, we still believe that the best way is to help others financially and most don't have financial means to help and this usually prevents people from helping. Someone thought of the idea of creating a community where people can make use of in helping others.
What is Karma?
Karma is a social website which can serve as a blog where you do good to others, blog about it and earn. Am been on the Karma platform for weeks now and have seen how it is being done. Everyday, we have different blog post of people helping those in need, make video recording and upload on the karma website for others to see and upvote. Not only that, this method can be of more help to that particular person in need,How? For instance, I saw someone who is need let say financially, and I could only render little help to the person, I can make a video record of it, as long as am a member in karma platform, I can ask for more help from the whole community and those interested will be able to render support thereby fulfilling the aim of the karma community.
KARMA is a decentralized social network designed to incentivize users to do good in the world and receive KARMA for helping out mankind. Some have described it as “Instagram” on EOS.

Some Things Needed On Karma
My point of view on the app, karma still need to implement some certain things on the app which include
- Implementing Add More Account Option
Adding more accounts option will be of great use on the platform, A karma members could not access his karma account, and he asked me for help but I couldn't do anything because I have to clear my karma app cache before I can log in to his account.
- Receiving Voting Error
Most time when I want to vote other karma users post, I always receive voting error, and most time I do have cpu which I rented. I even stake my karma token but didn't solve the issue. So I have to power down my token to purchase more ram, cpu and net which suppose not to be.
Karma is really a great platform, there have been different project ideas where users contribute karma token and help those in needs and also engage in bringing more members on broad and some were given phones as karma bonus in other for them to be able to join the community
