Sharing Pixel-WhaleToken's Philosophy

Why do we do this?

We know how hard it is to bring art to life and make a way of living with that. At least before it becomes a profession. But this is not something we think people should to suffer: we want to change the equation and help those who choose the art as a way of living. Because art is not a only a job, it is not only a profession. It is a philosophy of life and a way of living. It is a way of thinking and conceiving the World.

It is something too beautiful to let it die on the people with potential, just because of the bitter lack of resources. We can't give ourselves the pleasure of ignoring it and let those flowers to wither away. Because if we do, we are part of the problem, not the solution.

What is the solution?

Whaleshares is a prodigy child that has just been born. It is a platform that is already providing countless resources, funding and support to projects that will create synergy in as many was as possible. The best of all is that time will just bring this amazing project to grow and give tools to even more people, for helping them to achieve their goals and dreams.

We understand that when you are thinking more about paying you bills rather than making your projects to come true, you can't apply 100% of energy to create and make things happen. But we are here to change that.

But how do we...?

We will protect our fellow artists and support the #art and #photography community by rewarding their efforts and work of quality in many different ways. We know how hard it is to start this path. You are not alone.

But we need you, fellow artists, to promote yourselves in the right way. Because due to the increasing size of our community, it will be harder and harder to find you and your fellows between so many. make a proper use of the tags, discord channels and comments section.

Make a proper use of the tags
There are two main and unique tabs that you can use as the main tag for better visibility; #art and #photography. Only those two tags will be considered.

Use the Official Whaleshares Discord Server to promote your work
Join us to our Official Whaleshares Discord Server and get right onto the Artist-Corner or Photography-Corner channels and promote your work. Remember to read the rules of the server and post once and only once (posts with mentioned more than once won't be considered).

Share your pieces on the comments section!
Add a thumbnail of your artwork or photography with a short description and let the community to support you! Sharing your artwork on the comment section will give you a good chance of being seen by our staff and get you promoted. But remember to not spam: Remember to share your artwork/post only once. Otherwise it won't be taken in consideration.

Bringing Communities together.

Language won't be a barrier for Pixel. People from many different languages and corners of the world are already working hard to make this possible for those which english is not yet an option.

zoom-in_1.png

Many different multi-language communities are coming all together to bring their tongues and efforts on the same direction.

Our goal is also to support with warm words and education to those that could push further and just need a little bit of stimulus to get their stuff done in a much better way. And if you are willing to help in your native language, don't hesitate to look for us at the Official Whaleshares Discord Server !

  • my goal on WS is to meet new people, share my content and have an input into how the platform evolves

  • What brought me here is the free tokens / upvotes on offer and not necessarily because i think it is a "fun thing you guys are doing" or all the usual blah blah that people say in this bit.

  • im submitting this post, i think it is short and fun but it is an acquired taste though, it'll read differently to different people depending on what their mindset is: https://whaleshares.io/whaleshares/@cryptogrind/whaleshares-trending-page-and-the-grind-man-s-rant

  • i nominate / tag @scipio

Thx! And Merry Christmas @cryptogrind !

Merry Christmas from @derangedvisions, @kaliju and @anritco. We are glad that you are here on Whaleshares with us.

Hope to see a wide spread adoption of whaleshares and also a medium to help those in need be it financially, motivation or simply advice,

A platform were others can join and dont feel intimated by other users with high stake and one in which every voice counts, not been afraid if what you say or post might offend others and hence bring down their hammer on you.

A platform were users won't dive in with one foot in and another out, making them pull out the slightest moment they see things not going their way, but rather hold strong and steady and believing that whaleshares will be able to live up to their expectations


I joined due to a recommendation from a friend

And I hope to continue with my Phoenix Project for a long time yet, which is also the post I will share. The latest Phoenix Project Report post:

My goals for whaleshares? What brought me here?
Its hard to cramp all that without making an essay, but I will try in just two sentences.

Here because I don't wanna be anywhere else, I have found great people here and I look forward to discovering more people who I can connect and work with to create real good memories here.

My goals for whaleshares is to be part of the mechanism that will make it a connected BlockofHearts and not just chains. For this reason, I have been working tirelessly to discover more souls who are superb, who will rise above the water to make great positive impact on LIFE fueled by the chain. For example, One of the initiative I presently got my hands wet with two weeks ago is the "12welve Initiative" and it aims to give support and a ground for people who will positively impact this beautiful beast called the WhaleShares in so many ways the mind haven't unraveled yet. The Human Touch is what will make this chain become useful as it crosses into our very own lives.

Yeah, I was able to find a post not related to the 12welve in 7days, lol. Here
(Sorry this looks like an Essay already, not 2 sentences, lol)

Merry Christmas and happy new year in advance to Everyone ON and OFF whaleshares.

Thank you PIXEL team for all you do for the community. This is so selfless from the team; sharing, giving, caring and cheering us in this festive period.

At first I joined whaleshares with the steemit mindset/mentality; to write and earn but this changed when officialfuzzy explained the roadmap of whaleshares on one of the hangout. Since then my goals has been to build communities with the best ability I can render, to serve, make friends and tread on the path of engagement.

I invite @ifeoluwa88, @momogrow, @xawi, @burlarj, @Rehan12, @ferrate, @chinyerevivian, @cherylsonty, @kristen, @mbj, @lordjames, @Vheobong @zephalexia, @Menoski, @youhavewings, @hazem91, @ijmmai, @Jglake to come merry in PIXEL'S FEAST.

What a brilliant idea, guys!

While I don't have any specific goals I want to accomplish on Whaleshares, I am looking forward to watching the platform evolve. I have been involved in this community for well over a year now, so excited to see its transition into a DAC.

I don't have a post of my own to submit, I would like to share one of a friend of mine that I have known for a long time on Steemit and she finally made it here.

Awwww what a lovely Virtual Xmas Card! Merry Christmas and happy New year to you all at the Pixel team! 🎅 🎅 🎅
OK, so first I would like to tag my lovely friend @nickeyhavey. He is working hard at building communities and I love the passion he has behind his music. (I know music isn't visual, but music is an art form and therefore would fit in beautifully with the pixel community)
I came to Whaleshares on the recommendation of other Steemians @Nickeyhavey being one of them). I, like others, was getting frustrated with the amount of spam being churned out on Steemit and was told this platform would be a nicer place to be and less 'spammy'. So far so good! :D
My goals here on Whaleshares are simple. Be inspired by other photographers and learn new skills. Continue to create images using my newly found skills and engage with the amazing people that pop up here with similar interests. Support others in their journey and help if I can with either advice or upvotes.
I hope that Whaleshares will stay a positive place to be and an inspirational place for learning and creating. I think Pixelperfect have that covered and I am proud to be able to be a part of it! :D
Merry Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas Pixel! I hope the team behind this amazing project have a wonderful festive season before they take us into the New Year with the incredible value they're already providing. You're all doing a brilliant job, keep bringing the good vibes.

My goal is to expand my perspective and to discover and connect with people who're going to empower the values I hold. We all have a voice to share, we all need to grow and evolve into the best person we can be, and we all need to be excited about our lives while we do it.

This time of year is perfect to reflect on how far we've come and it's a real pleasure to be able to reflect on that with members of this community who are striving for greatness in themselves and the people around them.

Thank you for bringing an opportunity to the platform for people to shine. Respect.


@penderis come and share your feelings. 😁
latest post, 'best' can be up for debate
Curiosity and good recommendation brought me here and I haven't looked back. The energy is electric.

My main goal here on whaleshares is to achieve the things I hoped to achieve on Steem but due to the way that platform has become. It now seems improbable.
I want to create a home where ephemeral sculptors can document their work and preserve it forever on the blockchain. While getting rewarded in the process. As i grow my account I plan to attract many more users here and support them to grow.

I found whaleshares because a steemian @eveuncovered made a post about it.
I want to believe that my upvotes/ shares/ words are already helping people to get closer to their dreams. And that they are also helping me to reach my dreams. So my goal is quite simple- to do more of what I am doing now.

Happy Holidays back, first of all. This year for me has been more festive than the other 31 years of my life because, frankly enough, I've been hanging around a LOT more people who radiate holiday spirit. It's slowly infecting me.

I might need a vaccine once 2019 hits.

When I heard about Whaleshares, it was from @mandelsage (who, coincidentally tagged me, imagine that). I didn't have a goal when I moved over from the Steem blockchain either; I just wanted to follow wherever the headmasters of the "You Got Snekked" Discord community were going. I wouldn't have been very useful lemming mod otherwise. If I had remained solo, my business of being on any blockchain would've been more regimented toward developing my novel, and I honestly know that's not as interesting and engaging as helping out the community is.

So... I've been engaging and helping out the community.

Oh, did I mention I have fantastic procrastination skills? Well... I have fantastic procrastination skillz. (I think this is to everyone else's benefit.)

Anyway, I don't have a best post at the moment since the Benign Beauty Diary project's content is being recycled from a blog I made for it 7 years ago (so it's not unique and worthy of the title of "best"). However, it felt alright to re-post because I have intentions for the project which I've yet to write an official post about. Soooo, yes.

I've got to invite @maya525 and @turtledance24 because they appear to not be tagged yet (and hopefully still not tagged after I hit the post button). They're both way too awesome to not get some holiday love.

Happy Holidays, everyone else!


(occurred to me after posting that I have to put a link here to get the pixel holiday cheer. 😱 So.... here's my most recent post.)

My goals at Whaleshares are to collect 10,000 WHALESTAKE in 2019 and tell people about my hobbies and share my progress in drawing with them.
I decided to register at WhaleShare because I saw a lot of support for designers and artists, and this is very motivating to work more.

Thanks a million @pixel for this great opportunity.

Joining Whaleshares was an opportunity for me, I saw it as medium to learn more, having been on steemit for about ten months now. My goal here is very much related to what brought me here, and that is to learn more, improve my writing skills and make more blockchain friends, learn to be a better photographer and get more rewards.
I'm inviting my friends @menoski @kantos to this great program.

Wow...amazing in perfect,if you time please visit my blog @gibran007

Mery chisеmas! My goal in the New Year is to become a strong and useful witness for my friends and subscribers, to support all lovers of nature and outdoor activities on the platform Whaleshares! Invite my friends @eto-ka & @iot

After one and a half years on steemit, I found myself connected to a wonderful group of like minded people, who share their art, knowledge and resources, support and encourage each other. I followed some of them here and have a feeling that the community is even more committed and sincere.

I'm a professional artist for over 30 years and of course I like to show my art. But I also want to tell the stories behind it and inspire my fellow colleagues (or the ones to be).

The general public sees the artist superstars and the starving ones.. I would like to show, that there is a big space in between, that is actually populated and that making a living as a painter is indeed possible. Therefore being a kind of role model for those who would like to choose a similar path.


Here I show the steps to the creation of a large oil painting done in technique as well as theme inspired by the old masters: https://whaleshares.io/art/@reinhard-schmid/tribute-to-an-old-master-making-of-grande-venusmachine


I'm tagging @fieryfootprints who gave me the final push to join whaleshares. He creates very unique and original art, with an old technique like I do.

@poeticsnake, @stellabelle and @juliakponsford are real gems for the art community and besides being very creative artists, they are always helping and supporting others.

I am happy to have found my steemit friends and fellow artists @ammonite, @kommienezuspadt, @vermillionfox, @scrawly, @spider, @yanes94 here.

As well as the master of cutting edge avant garde music @vachemorte and the inspiring @ravijojla sharing stories of a world I recently discovered this summer.

Not to forget the one and only @eveuncovered who never ceases to amaze me with her very special ways, her radiant personality and the wonderful "stories" she tells.

Last not least, multi talented artist, creator and story teller @nuthman!

Es genial estar aquí, yo soy un usuario que vengo de Steemit, llegué a Whaleshares como cualquiera, pero luego me di cuenta que nuestra comunidad hispana necesitaba mas ayuda porque cada día llegan muchos usuarios hispanos, y solo habían 4 Witness en español, entonces decidií crear una comunidad y comencé a ayudarlos a través de charlas, conversatorios, clases y hasta curaciones, luego creé un par de concursos y ahora como un nuevo Witness, deseo seguir creciendo para poder apoyar a los nuevos usuarios que se suman cada día, brindando lo aprendido. "El Conocimiento al igual que el Amor, son virtudes que al compartirlas, no se acaban, en cambio, se multiplican". Entonces quiero que lo que yo he aprendido lo sepa muchísima gente.
It's great to be here, I'm a Steemit user, I came to Whaleshares like anyone else, but then I realized that our Hispanic community needed more help because every day many Hispanic users arrive, and there were only 4 Witnesses in Spanish, so I decided to create a community and began to help them through talks, conversations, classes and even healings, then I created a couple of contests and now as a new Witness, I want to continue growing to be able to support the new users who join every day, providing what I've learned. "Knowledge, like Love, are virtues that, when shared, do not end, but multiply". Then I want what I've learned to be known by a lot of people.

Hi, Merry Christmas @pixel
My goal for Whaleshares is to see it get the much needed adoption and attention like the top social medias. I believe and hope Whaleshares achieve this in 2019.

I joined this platform to get to meet and interact with people and my love for the mix of the blockchain and social media also got me here. I see here as place to improve on my writing skills and create valuable contents.

This happens to be one of my fav post in the last 7days

well , my journey started back earlier this when a friend introduce to steemit and ever since then I have found a perfect fit to express my passion for writing.

Whaleshares offers more in terms of reward distribution and governance and that is what makes it to stand out. However, I hope to see more interesting contest to stir up more participation. Thanks

Merry Christmas @pixel and the entire whaleshares community.

My goal for whaleshares, is to make whaleshares the community everyone around the wants to be part of, by producing quality content, by ensuring that quality undervalued contents get the needed rewards, and by restricting or stopping plagiarism in the community.

Why I came here, it's obvious, whaleshares is the future in crypto social media, and I know it for sure. And also I love sharing my thoughts, idea, and latest discoveries to people around the world, where else is better if not whaleshares.

Here is my best article in the past 7 days - Let's Talk About How Video Games Affects The Human Brain. It's an awesome read.

Tagging my friends to join the fun - @jeline, @florae, @imbigdee & @vickkyrich

My dream for whaleshares is to bring more users on board and make this platform a place where novice can learn more about the blockchain.

What brought me here was actually the urge to earn one with my Steemit post, but each day I tend to love this place the more. Very authentic and lovely rules.

I think my best post so far in the last seven dadays Is Tracking Nembis

Merry Christmas from @derangedvisions, @kaliju and @anritco. We are glad that you are here on Whaleshares with us.

First off, Merry Christmas celebration time!

After almost 12 years of intensive open source coding I felt I needed some change, I needed to write about my life and my thoughts. Reaching 40 year old very son (let say the middle of my life) was also an argument to make some changes.

Then from the beginning of 2018 I started to search for a social network where I could write stories and connect with others all over the world. my first criteria was to find an open-source platform. I tried a few, quiet a lot in fact but did't find my home until September. Until I found the warm Whaleshares ocean ❤️

I neede to chat n Discord to get my account running and so I felt so much welcomed! Even without an account I was feeling at home.

From that, I invested time, started to engage and build communities and now I invest money because I am here for the very long term, I love writing, interacting and helping people like I do in real life. I founf that with a nice stak I can reall support people in real life such as buying food. Whaleshare is for me a king of micro economy without borders. A dream I could have at 20 when I was a punk!

Here is my post: Adopt a Whale - Application

Thank you @pixel and @derangedvisions for you amazing work!

I would like to mention: @willymac @kingblack @irational @joelgonz1982 @team @rafia @saahir @isaac-richie @gileloe @franz54 @drvimto @joelsegovia @alexisochoa @janine-ariane @matkodurko @lit and @profanereviews 🐳

Thank you for getting me here, Chris! You gave me the push needed to get me started by sending me the list of advantages WLS has over the other platforms. Thank you for that, my friend!

Also thanks to @irational, @joelgonz1982, and @drvimto for being my first team mates (along with you, too, of course) The waters are indeed warm here!

@penderis you should do this.

The reason why I am here I wrote out in a post.

Merry Christmas from @derangedvisions, @kaliju and @anritco. We are glad that you are here on Whaleshares with us.

Happy holidays!! Thank you for this :D
My goal is to learn perspective and share my process. Also to practice more visual storytelling. Mainly art improvement goals ^^ And to make my dragon contest well known on Whaleshares (shameless plug xD)
I took a small break and I'm working on couple of long posts right now, so my best post isn't exactly the best this week: https://whaleshares.io/art/@kristyglas/happy-holidays-the-unown
To make up for it I also shared one of my favorite old posts I made.
@crittercrats, @niko3d, @yanes94, @fourapril, @gabeboy ^^

Cheers!

Also I was brought here because I had some unspent Whaleshares that I forgot about :D And Whaleshares discord helped me out with making an account ^^

Merry Christmas from @derangedvisions, @kaliju and @anritco. We are glad that you are here on Whaleshares with us.

There was a Mentor group in the early days of Steemit and that community changed my life, this is where I met @sarah-xx and now we live together in Britain. Sadly, the mentor group ended and it marked the decline for Steemit.

Whaleshares reminds me of that mentor group and some of it’s old members are now proud whale-people. Sadly, the rest disappeared from Steemit, to pursue their dreams off the blockchain, but I’m trying to demonstrate to these talented individuals that Whaleshares is very different to what Steemit turned into.

My goals are to get them here; to help others; to grow the platform and to be able to reward talented people, so we can learn from them.

I also want us to find a way to give non-content creators a better chance at more rewards for their effort when currating, because this is the majority of the people on the internet and our audience.

I write short stories and they need an audience, so my main goal is to find a way to give regular people the same deal as the rest of us, without ever forcing them to invest or create content.

I know this goal may take a while, but I think that the Whaleshares community has some of the most innovative and resourceful people, so if anyone can figure out how to reward the masses, it will be us.

Merry Christmas to you the @pixel team.
My goal on whaleshares is to showcase and most importantly improve upon my writing skills. With the right motivation, I notice that I wrote beautiful articles even beyond what I thought I could do. I made great posts on steemit when the reward was really promising but with the dwindling prices of cryptos, my rewards began to dwindle geometrically, sometimes to zero rewards. This made me to seek a better platform to keep the fire burning. Whaleshares is the platform. To me, I will say the reward is encouraging enough, at least for a start. I hope to impact people more and more here. Thank you.

Here is the link to one of my best posts in the last 7 days.

Merry Christmas from @derangedvisions, @kaliju and @anritco. We are glad that you are here on Whaleshares with us.

Ive just read this post and wish to left my .02 cents too ;)

01. Tell us what your goals are for Whaleshares and what brought you here.
As a content creator Whaleshares is another platform that I can share my content like Vlogs and Photos to be more visible and people can enjoy it. Also I can monetize it too. I really like "Why we do this" section in this post, expecially the part about bills. That is exactly what I'm struggling about ;)

02. Share a link to your best post in the last 7 days.
You already left me a nice share on my latest vlog so im gonna suggest you another persons post - https://whaleshares.io/vlog/@prettynicevideo/cleaning-the-planet-getting-them-out-there-and-help

03. Tag at least one friend to spread the Holiday cheer with.
@sergiomendes

04. Upshare this post with at least 1% for visibility.
Done :)

Thank You!
