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:
- Helping Morte et Tributa via tasks created by @met and other moderators in the Morte et Tributa communities.
- Winning competitions sponsored by Morte et Tributa.
- Attending the BeyondBitcoin WhaleTank Hangout with Projects that earn them.
- 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.
