Derangedvisions - Adopt a Whale Initiative - Inspired by @pankso

What is Adopt a Whale?


The Adopt a Whale initiative is something that I heard of from @pankso in his Adopt a Whale - Application. I had "adopted" a few new members of the Steemit platform and mentored them, introduced them to different communities and rewarded their posts for a specific amount of time. One of the hardest things for people starting off on these platforms is gaining an audience or knowing the correct way to write posts and use tags.

I am going to be joining @pankso in his efforts to "adopt" members of the platform and help them get started in the right direction and become great members of Whaleshares. What will my adopted whales receive from me?

  • Daily 100% reward for 14 days
  • Engagement on posts.
  • Advice via discord or Whaleshares.



  • Be real, be yourself!
  • You must have less than 2000 Whalestake.
  • Only post your original work, no plagiarism!
  • Do not spam comments on posts. Only post engaging comments.
  • Source your images properly.

I am using the same rules as @pankso so that our initiatives for helping the members of the platform. The goal of this is to teach the newer members of the platform good practices and to give them visibility.

How does it work?


Simple, if you want to be adopted by me, you have to write #adoptawhale in the comments along with a short description about yourself and what you mainly post about. I will check the profiles of the people asking to be adopted and pick 1-2 users. I will then announce the adopted Whale(s) 10-12 days after the publication date of this post. You can also suggest people to be adopted by mentioning them in a comment, but they also have to comment so I’m sure they are OK!

I am looking forward to hearing from all of you.

I am a cryptocurrency and life blogger. I like your iniative and would like to be sponsored. Check out my content. I post on Trybe under will stanley as well. Thank you for your consideration.


Hi, I am a photographer, active on Steemit and Whaleshares. I like participating in contests, and I post only my own images. Honestly, I'm finding it very hard to catch on here on Whaleshares. I often wonder if people are really here or do they only cross post? In any case, I'm a legit new user, trying hard to powerup and establish myself here.

I want to add that this is a very nice initiative, and whoever you pick should be very grateful :)


I love your photography. I would like to support you here on Whaleshares to help you out. I have been taking time off of the platform, so I wont be as active as before. What is your BTS address so I can send you some of my tokens so you can use them to vote on your posts?


Thank you so much! I noticed you haven't been around as much, I hope everything is ok. Before I forget... are you still running you witness on Steemit? I think I still have you voted there. I know that you stopped your witness on Whaleshares. I sure do appreciate your support, thank you! My bts name is keithboone01


I still have my Steemit witness that is a group witness named c0ff33a. I just sent you some tokens to use on your posts. If you have any questions or anything feel free to hit me up on discord.

When redeeming the tokens, make sure you send them to deranged-visions.


Thank you so much, I really appreciate what you've done! Yes, I already have coff33a voted.

This is what is needed to make the world a better place, committed people who have the desire to help and be guides in this huge sea, what a blessing it is to meet people like you and @pankso who have such a big heart and a energy that is contagious and ignites that motor in our hearts for wanting to continue working for a better world.

God bless you, great work! @derangedvisions

Wow this is real effort @derangedvisions !
And I know the newbie baby whales will benefit greatly from your wise instructions.

I am "a little over" (x2) from being qualified to join this initiative under your wings, but probably next round if I need some photography pointers I'd consult with you in the future.

Thank you for putting so much effort into grooming great writers of the future.

The reason i am i love with this initiative is that it feels like this community is an ocean and the big fish, whales and sharks take thier time to help the new migrating fishes from the fresh water to adapt and learn how to survive in the ocean. Kudos to @pankso for the amazing job.
