Introducing Lotus Coin for The Natural Medicine Community!

You know that feeling of butterflies in the tummy combined with electric shocks zipping your feet? Yeah that. We're all BOUNCING with excitement to tell you we've finally - finally - made a coin for the Natural Medicine community! We're all trying to have a cup of chamomile with shots of hops tincture combined with slow exhalations so that we don't overwhelm you with our bounciness!

So, exhaling. We know it's been a tough week hard forking. Confusing. Frightening. Eeeeeek! But we've been knuckling down behind the scenes of Natural Medicine and figuring out a few things.

  • How can we support people posting awesome natural health content, from herbalism to meditation, crystals to permaculture, veganism to keto diets, wildcrafting to growing your own vegetables?
  • How can we contribute to New Steem?
  • How can we onboard new users?
  • How can we continue being the centre of natural health on Steemit since our inception over a year ago?

And yeah, we FREAKED out over the tokens, like y'all. What were all these 'things' filling up our Steempeak wallets? Were they they downfall of Steem?

We soon realised that tokens are AWESOME for bringing folk together in communities - and communities MATTER. Instead of floating and drifting across the whole Steemiverse looking for content to care about and support, we can help just unite all of us that care about alternative health and practices in the same place. So we decided to go for it. Let's unite everyone who cares about natural health, resilience, herbalism, meditation and all of that stuff that unites mind, body and soul under one token!

And so, finally, we have our own front end, and our own token to reward Natural Medicine related content. We'll let you know more about this in future posts, but you can view it here on Natural Medicine, and sign in just as you would with your Steem posting keys anywhere (like Steempeak, or Busy).

Our coin is called LOTUS.

That means, if you've been issued LOTUS, and use the #naturalmedicine tag, you'll be able to reward content with LOTUS. And you'll appear on the Natural Medicine front end, which is fab for showing non Steemians what we're all about.

Check your tokens. You might already have LOTUS in your wallet! Those who've had a lot to do with our community in the last year will be the first to get this token. We will be talking more about air drops and the specifics of that in future posts.

Look out for LOTUS upvotes from our curators and voting accounts. Our main contributors and curators also have some staked ready to reward you too. More on this in a forthcoming post!

A few things you need to know:

  • We're about kindness first and foremost. You know what this means. Play nice.
  • We're aware of token farming, and will downvote according. We'll let you know what we accept and what we'll downvote in future posts.
  • Plagiarism sucks. If you don't know what this is, google it.
  • Please be patient whilst we're working out the details - we're learning like you are.
  • We welcome your input and advice - we are a collective that values everyone.

In the next week or so, we'll be releasing a manifesto that fully explains what we mean by 'natural medicine'. We aim to be transparent and honest as possible, so if there's any issues, please do get in touch with us! You can find us on Discord here.

Lotus up, dear Steemfolk!

We are having a radio show this weekend if you'd like to know more. Details in this post!

Deliriously tired, but too excited to not say congrats 🎊

Wow! Beautiful to see this all come together after so much hard work! It will be wonderful, pulling the different communities together and all the excellent Natural Medicine content under one roof!
Great times ahead!

Nice. Won't take part as I'm clueless about Natural/unNatural medicine. However, I agree that Tribes are awesome and the more, the better~

Can always pop in to learn and possibly find some info that will improve your quality of life..

FANTASTIC UPDATE !!!! .. and still a real one !

Congrats for launching your & our own front end :-))


Congrads! stop into token town discord sometime we all love Tribes & Tokens!

Yay, we will!!!

Finally we have a tribe that can help heal everyone on Steem naturally!

Making a tribe website is like giving a home to this beautiful community. Congratulations to you all for a newly designed home!

I'd love to visit this home often as a guest visitor :)

On other note, I think you could have given a better name to your token though LOTUS sounds therapeutic too ...just a thought!

Congratulations! Wish this LOTUS will keep blooming eternally, spreading its healing powers to all!

I am so excited about this and love the name. Well done everyone who made this happen xx

That's a piece of great news!
Thanks so much, @naturalmedicine's staff!
