Morte et Tributa (MET)


Hello fellow Whaleshareans, Smokers, and Steemeans! I am cross-posting this post via MASDACS. This post is to serve as an official introduction/description of the Morte et Tributa (MET) community. It is my belief that the MET community could become a valuable asset to every MAS-chain community. If, after reading this, you have any questions, don't hesitate to comment below or join the Discord Server.

This post will be updated and re-posted on a regular basis.

What is the Morte et Tributa (MET) Community?

MET's purpose is to provide business professionals and intellectuals with a central hub to which they can share valuable, general business-related knowledge and increase awareness of the cryptocurrency regulation that affects individuals and businesses world-wide.

The @met account will be used to advocate and foster a community of individualists that will analyze and critique the current state of crypto regulation and how it affects each individual state, province, country etc. In a time of regulatory uncertainty, it is of utmost importance to advocate for a regulatory framework which incentivizes innovation.

Please note, however, that while I have emphasized the importance of establishing a fair and forgiving regulatory crypto framework, the MET community will support all value adding business related information including, but not limited to, legal information, investment information, marketing information, etc.

In traditional business, companies and individuals have always “protected” their intellectual property, as there was no monetary incentive for sharing it. I believe, that with the introduction of blockchain technology and, later, mutual aid society (MAS) based chains, this traditional mindset has become obsolete.

What are MET Tokens?:

MET tokens are the official reward/share token for @met's subjective distribution. These tokens are backed by the stake held by the MET MAS-chain accounts (Whaleshares, Smoke, & Steemit), each token representing a 1% reward/share. Thus, for a full 100% reward/share, 100 MET tokens must be consumed. It is important to note that a share will only occur on platforms where MET sharing is supported. MET will be distributed to individuals who prove to be valuable to the Morte et Tributa mission.

Other potential means of obtaining these tokens are the following:

  1. Helping Morte et Tributa via tasks created by @met and other moderators in the Morte et Tributa communities.
  2. Winning competitions sponsored by Morte et Tributa.
  3. Attending the BeyondBitcoin WhaleTank Hangout with Projects that earn them.
  4. Being an overall valuable Morte et Trbuta community member.

This description may change and no promises are implied by the use of these tokens. Though the creator has no intent on powering down his token's account, market circumstances may force this in the future that are outside the hands of the creator - thus the value of MET tokens are not promised. BitShares changes to the blockchain and subsequent reactions cannot and should not be expected to place liability on this token's creator. The Same is True with Respect to all Other Platforms.

MET tokens are currently only operating on Whaleshares, but will be modified to include Smoke and Steemit in the near future.

About the Author

I hold a Master’s degree in Accounting with a concentration in Information Management. This degree has given me years of exposure to topics, as it relates to the USA, such as: financial reporting, financial statement audits, information systems audits, tax regulation, business law, and overall general business knowledge. Shortly after obtaining my degree I worked for a large public accounting firm for about a year, focusing on IT audits, only deciding to leave to put more focus on cryptocurrency.

While I am not technically a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), I have met the educational requirements and passed all four sections of the CPA on the first try; the only requirement left is to obtain the required experience hours, which I am extremely close to. All of this being said, I can safely say that I am well versed in business knowledge and am more than capable of learning business related concepts.

Can't wait, glad we got some more investing and business related material here!


@heyimsnuffles, the more we all work together, the more we all will learn and grow as a community! I am excited to see all that the MET community accomplishes. As more people join, the network effect should lead to a copious amount of valuable information!

When crypto meets suits then average folks will have much more confidence to get involved. Sometimes it's easy to underestimate the power of passive people. They have checkbooks and IRAs.


Cryptocurrency is eerily similar to the invention of the internet. So many people didn't understand the internet (who am I kidding - most people still don't!) and it wasn't until the internet became user-friendly with use-cases that required little to no technical expertise that it really thrived. Of course, there will be some things that the average Joe has to learn and adapt to - such as the Passwords that we have all grown to hate love. It is my opinion that Private keys are the modern-day Passwords that average Joe must adapt to. Maybe I am wrong, but whatever the case, it is going to be a wild ride and I look forward to seeing where we all end up!


Both are "keys" to something of "value" after all. Your analogy is accurate.

Hi @met,
This is first time I am reading your article. And I like to say it's very interesting and a very good concept. I am looking forward and hope I can provide some support to this community so that you can reach your desired goal.
Thanks for sharing this information with us.


@nasarakbar Thanks for your support! Don't hesitate to join the MET Discord server (information is in the above post). I believe I can speak for the MET community in saying that we would be extremely happy to have you as part of our community.

The MET token's whaleshare reward power is INCREDIBLE! The best I've ever seen.


@tedtv Haha, keep at it and yours will be too! By the way, I really liked your MET token art!

Great, I'll keep an eye-out for the contests, thanks


@sandwichbill I look forward to your participation! The contests will not being coming from the @met account directly, however I will post a link from this account to the contests. As this is the community account, I want to ensure that I promote and empower others in the MET community. As such, @met will be sponsoring other community members' initiatives/contests. Keep an eye out for links to the contests!

I am glad to be a part of this community, the fact that it would span both to smoke and the steem blockchain simply shows that this innovative walk is not tie down to just one platform...
Keep Soaring


We are lucky to have you @immortal-tongue! I am a large advocate of cross-posting and not "one chain to rule them all"! I believe that we can provide value across many communities, so why limit it to just one?! Thanks for all your support!

Nice! This looks like something I definitely want to get involved with.

Met is definitely a goto.. Btw what is the meaning of Morte et Tributa


It's Latin for "Death and Taxes", or something close to that.

So I am not really on the business side of any of this and I am mostly a musician and still learn that even. So how best would I be able to help out in this area? And where would be the best place to go to earn met tokens?
