Because @isaria and I have not been busy enough already, we have decided to launch the tribe before our move. Mainly because we are masochists at heart.
As many of you know, we have been doing our best to support the artistic community of Steem for about 2 years. We have donated Steem to openmic, run our Creative based curation radio show at @msp-waves, and upvoted the best we can.
@isaria has also been running 2 Creative Contests each week as well as doing her weekly music curation.
@isaria and I have heard you say that music and arts needs a tribe. We couldn't agree more. We are building out a team of curators and mods that will be searching for the best artistic posts they can find and add more value to what you already do! With the release of Scotbot, we're ready to take this to the next level.
We have created Creative Coin. This is to bring the artistic community together and reward them with tokens for their work.
We understand that creativity is hard work, and we also understand that curation needs a boost. We will be going with a 60/40 split for author rewards. This gives just a bit more for your creative efforts, but still rewards people for curation.
We will be doing our claimdrop this weekend!
The claimdrop will be super targeted. With help from @inertia, we have already run the inquiry of users that have used certain "creative" tags over the past 3 months and we will be running that list against different community black-lists to come up with our list of elligible accounts.
We will be launching a nitrous instance after the claimdrop is completed. Until then we have decided to use the tag
creativecoin to distribute rewards.
We also understand that there are many people that will mis-use tags trying to sneak an unrealted post through. We have created the account @notcreative to downvote these accounts. This account has very little Steem on it, so it will not affect any payouts except for Creative Coin.
There's a new tribe coming. Lay your stake, post your creations, and grow even more.
We're excited about this and we wanted to get the word out there so people can start getting as excited as we are!
