Proof of Ink: New "Consensus Algorithm" Pays $3000 🤔 No Promises. Expect Chaos.

Proof of Ink: New "Consensus Algorithm" Pays $3000 🤔 No Promises. Expect Chaos.

Kusama is an early, unaudited and unrefined release of Polkadot. Kusama will serve as a proving ground, allowing teams and developers to build and deploy a parachain or try out Polkadot’s governance, staking, nomination and validation functionality in a real environment.

I guess Kusama is kind of like a Polkadot blockchain sandbox that you can play around and experiment stuff on the actual blockchain environment?

Kappa Sigma Mu (KΣM)?

The Kusama "Fratority" Or,
Kusama Human Blockchain Project is a society and it's membership process is built on Kusama 🤯

Proof of Ink?

If you want to join this society, existing members have will have to judge on your specific qualifications and approve you using Proof-of-Ink consensus mechanism.

rules: Convention of Approval of Membership

  • An identifier of the Kusama network.
  • An identifier of the parent member.

Proof of Ink is basically, you have to have a Kusama network's canary tattoo on your body (permanent) with the information that identifies your parent member. More details here.


What Happens Next?

You need to convince other "fratority" members to pass the proposal and then 👇

"A blockchain fratority will pay its next member around $3000 if they get a tattoo representing Kusama."

Joining the "fratority" would get you 15 KMS and $3000 investment would come from Kusama council...supposedly.
I don't see any rewards mentions on the project page but it says so on this site

I think getting a perment tattoo on your body is a bit too extreme, but if you are into it, you might get some money out it. And the canary logo is kind of cute too so. Are you Ink? 😉
