The time has come to unveil further details for the STRANGE Token Distribution Plan!

First the Details of the STRANGE Token:

And more background here.

MAXIMUM SUPPLY: 10,000,000 STRANGE

The Distribution Plan:

Designation Percent Token Quantity
BitShares DEX Sign Up Incentive (for new accounts): 20% 2,000,000
Token Design Contest Prize: 0.5% 50,000
Distribution to Current BitShares DEX Users: 70% 7,000,000
Reserve (to be burned if not needed): 9.5% 950,000

Explanation of categories:

The BitShares DEX Sign Up Incentive (for new accounts) will be 20% which is 2,000,000 tokens. I have a target of 2,000 new users to sign up between now and December 31st, 2017.

Therefore, the total 2,000,000 tokens divided by 2,000 new users target = 1,000 STRANGE tokens for new users signing up to BitShares Decentralized Exchange using my link.

In fact, I have had 1 new sign up already, noconnor8, who I have sent the 1st sign-up bonus!

If the target goal of 2,000 sign-ups is not reached, then the remaining tokens designated for this purpose will be burned at the deadline of December 31st, 2017.


Token Design Contest Prize will have a REWARD of 0.5% of the total equalling 50,000 STRANGE Tokens.

More details of the Token Design Contest to follow soon!


Distribution to Current BitShares DEX Users of 70% which will be a total 7,000,000 STRANGE Tokens. According to http://cryptofresh.com/a/BTSthere are at the time of this writing 38,146 Holders & Traders of BTS.

Using this number, I get 7,000,000 tokens ÷ 38,146 users = 183.51991 which will be rounded to 185 tokens each.

From what I have found on http://cryptofresh.com/, I have been able to identify only 5,186 users for which to send the initial distribution.

Once I begin the distribution 5,186 users x 185 tokens = 959,410 total tokens distributed.

The remaining tokens will be preserved between now and December 31st, 2017 for users who did not receive the initial distribution to contact me and I will be able to send them their portion. If the users who do not receive the initial distribution do not contact me by the deadline of December 31st, 2017, then the remaining portion of 6,040,590 STRANGE tokens will be burned, reducing the total supply.


Reserve (to be burned if not needed) of 9.5% of total, which is 950,000 tokens will be held to be used if necessary for other promotional endeavors, including but not limited to: additional sign-up incentives, additional STRANGE token contest, other advertising efforts, etc.

If they are not used by the deadline of December 31st, 2017, then the remaining portion of STRANGE tokens will be burned, reducing the total supply.


The distribution will begin after the posting of this blog today and will go until I am able to finish the list of 5,186 users, at which time another post will be made.

Thanks, and as always:

Stay tuned.
Stay interesting.
Stay Strange.


UPDATE: Approximately 10% of the Distribution to Current BitShares DEX Users, so 10% of the 5,186 users on my list have now been distributed 185 STRANGE Tokens.

Introducing STRANGE: A BitShares User-Issued Asset (UIA)

This post originally appeared on steemit.

STRANGE “begins with open-ended, pragmatic tinkering that thrives on the unexpected.”


Question Mark Coin Image

There are several potential ways for STRANGE to be used as I discussed in Keepin’ It Strange.

One idea is issuing STRANGE for a TOKEN designed through a contest that can be held here on steemit and voted on by the community.

Additionally, distribution methods can be discussed and debated.


But first the facts:

Primary settings

PRECISION: 5 decimal places

MAXIMUM SUPPLY: 10,000,000 STRANGE

Core exchange rate:

QUOTE ASSET AMOUNT 1 STRANGE : BASE ASSET AMOUNT 1 BTS

Description:

The STRANGE Token is as open-ended as the name suggest and is unusual or surprising in a way that is unsettling or hard to understand.

Inspired by Breaking Smart (https://breakingsmart.com/en/season-1/), this UIA was created by StrangerArray (https://steemit.com/@strangerarray) with the idea of creating first and finding out after what we can best use it for. More details are sure to follow. → Which is this post.

What have I done?!

This idea is this:

The process is not even recognizable as a problem-solving mechanism at first glance:

1. Immersion in relevant streams of ideas, people and free capabilities
2. Experimentation to uncover new possibilities through trial and error
3. Leverage to double down on whatever works unexpectedly well

So here’s to “Tinkering versus Goals”.


Stay tuned.
Stay interesting.
Stay Strange.

Giving to Grow

This post originally appeared on my other blog that pays me, and you if you want, to post and to comment @ https://steemit.com/@strangerarray.

 

When I was younger, I never understood why companies spent so much money telling others about the good things they were doing.


Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Image

I always thought they could better use the money for whatever they were raising it for rather than spending it on mailers, marketing, commercials and ads.

Somewhere along the way, I learned that the reason they spend so much on telling people about what they are doing is so that they can raise even more than they would otherwise!

Fair enough.

But is that enough?

What if there were a way to raise money, but not only for the immediate needs, but future needs too?

“If you feed a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you give him a growing endowment, you feed him for life.” – @stan

Now this sounds interesting!

The thing is, I live in Texas, but not near enough to Houston to be impacted directly by Hurricane Harvey and the resulting flooding.

But I know people who are down that way and I want to do something.

There is plenty of ways to give supplies, money and other things, but what is something unique that I got that I can use to “do more”…


Some Notable Heros –
J. J. Watt and Jerry Jones


That’s awesome, but I don’t have that kind of cash… How can a normal everyday guy like me be a HERO?

More from @stan:

“So, if you donate $30, it could grow to $30,000 collateral in two years while Harvey victims get a steady series of HERO payments that add up to $10,000 – without touching the $30,000 endowment you have cleverly built for them.”

Now that’s impressive!

This morning I decided to donate some of my own HERO to the cause with the hopes that it too will one day grow!

My BitShares Decentralized Exchange account is strangerarray07 and as you can see I gave 1.5 HERO to Help with Harvey Recovery!

I wouldn’t normally publicize my givings, but I want to raise awareness of this special way to help Rebuild Houston!

Whatda’say wanna join me and be a HERO?


Stay tuned.
Stay interesting.
Stay Strange.

Last time we talked in Viva La Vida!, I mentioned to you the ability of common people to make a big difference in the world and their life by getting involved with BitShares Decentralized Exchange!


I Am Somebody Image

The thing about it is that I get you are probably skeptical about this and that you are not sure you want to try to learn something new and sign up for another account on another website…

Boy, do I have that same sentiment…

At the very least, who needs the hassle?

But what if there was an incentive?


Motivation Money Image
Image Source


Even though I am “intrinsically motivated”, I also don’t mind something “extrinsic”.

But I can’t give you money…

Maybe some BTS, but I am not sure you want them because they are only worth a little now, but like a seed, they may grow to be so much more…

That is why I share with you about it and encourage you to sign up with BitShares Decentralized Exchange.

One of the great things about the Bitshares DEX is that as a user you can create your own assets and then make a market for them by providing value and growing them to be worth more than they are at the start.

That is the whole impetus behind this post.

I am considering creating my own User-Issued Asset (UIA) on the BitShares exchange, but I am not sure exactly if people would really want what I have to offer.

The thing about it is that I am a simple man who is looking to help others when I can and so that I would like to make something that helps not only myself but others.

The deal is if I make a token, ICO, or ITO, then there needs to be something behind it so that people will value it and want it.

Some hutzpah if you will.

Stan explains this process of creating an UIA in his latest interview on The Crypto Show.

As confident as I am in creating this, I need others to want it and so I am looking for input.

That being said, what do you think is a valuable service I could provide in exchange for my own UIA?

For example, I am great at coming up with 10 ideas a day for over 100 straight days on my former blog.

I write consistently here on steemit.

I once got an MBA in Finance.

I wrote a book.

But what do you care about?

I want to be more useful to society as a whole and would like to offer a service that a token can be exchanged for that you value.

For example @ash has the FAVTOKEN that is worth “up to 1 hour of mytime for Coaching/Consultancy/Support. Main topic BitShares, other topics on request.”

So what do you think is worth me making available to you?

Let me know in the comments!


Stay tuned.
Stay interesting.
Stay Strange.

Embracing Uncertainty

This post originally appeared on my other blog that pays me, and you if you want, to post and to comment @ https://steemit.com/@strangerarray.

 

Few things in life are as exciting, anxiety producing, and exhilarating as the possibilities brought forth through uncertainty in the future.


The Last Tycoon Image

The truth of the matter is that humans like to think they can know certain things about the future.

In order to comfort ourselves we prepare ahead of time.

We make plans.

We try our best to control for eventualities.

Yet we cannot know for certain all possible outcomes.

This creates uncertainty.


Uncertainty Image

This uncertainty can cause anxiety, fear, and doubt.

To assuage these feelings we often times speak about what we think is going to happen.

Predictions are made.

Forecasts are set.

Hype flows.

And then we wait and see how it goes.

We can shrink from it.

We can hide from it.

Or we can stand up and face it and embrace it!


Stay tuned.
Stay interesting.
Stay Strange.
