Hey all, I've been a casual follower of the Bitcoin space since around 2012 but really got into it around 2013 when Counterwallet was released, since then I've been very interested in Bitcoin 2.0 and have since acquired an EARLY token, and various orher things.
I am a hobbyist author, however, most of my writing is either lost to the ages or on NationStates (A nation building game) as Role Plays. So I thought I'd consider making more writing and publicizing it, but where, and how was the main question.
I mulled it over for a while, and had DeviantART earmarked for a while, but was wondering how to monetize it, while also fostering a thriving and happy community. I've always believed in Creative Commons and copyleft, as well as giving a share of my earnings back to the community, and wasn't sure how, until it hit me. Counterparty has dividend features, and can be used as a currency!
So I decided to issue 1 billion JaroknCoin (JRKC), and sign up for DeviantART under the name Jarokn. I have used this nickname since I was about 12 in various places, most since long forgotten. I know that not many others use it, although it is taken on Facebook and Twitter, but I can use something else on those, and I already do.
So, anyway, rather than attempting to explain it all here, I made two posts on DeviantART. One for my commission and request rules and prices, and one for JaroknCoin itself. The links are at the bottom of this post.
For those wanting a quick summary, basically, the tokens are used to buy commissions and receive a distributed 10% share of every commission purchase. Eventually, I want to have an access token here for a forum and society.
I hope this has interested you enough, I hope to do some giveaways soon, and I also have a 1,000 JaroknCoin bonus for those that watch my profile and comment their XCP address on the About JaroknCoin post. Also, if you mention Let's Talk Bitcoin, I'll give you an extra 1,000 JaroknCoins with your watchers bonus. :)
Anyway, I'm in the process of working on some writing examples, in the meantime, I have links.
