There is no official announcement of what TORUM stands for yet but the closest guess is cryTO foRUM which the name itself suggests that it is a forum for crypto enthusiasts. Torum is a social media platform for crypto enthusiasts. For now that is the current product but the founders claimed that in the future it can be much more. During this writing, Torum is in openbeta and you can only enter using invitational links such as mine https://www.torum.com/signup?referral_code=0fajarpurnama0. Also, Torum is also open for all topics outside of cryptocurrency, just do not spam. If you ask me, the developers can just create a space that separates between crypto and non-crypto topic and let users choose which one they want to see. Another thing is that non-crypto topic can also lead to cryptonization of that topic. For example, photography does not have any indications of crypto but then some creative users suggests for photographers to earn crypto while sharing their shots, ultimately linking photography with crypto. Let’s continue with the main topic and break the evolution of crypto social media.
One of my favourite video game is Metal Gear Solid 5 and here is a screenshot of my gameplay showing missions. As you can see, Torum is on the way for fun gamification.
If you have registered, welcome, you are officially a Lander, if not, why not try registering using the link above and try yourself as you read this through. Go to the mission tab to see available missions. In this article I’ll be covering only the daily missions and no more to make it simple since this an article to introduce new landers. This includes about the fundamentals, utilities, token, the importance of tipping, more complex missions, clans, companies, the future of Torum, and etc. I will cover other topics in separate articles.
The simplest mission is the daily login, login, go to the mission menu, and claim 1 XTM. In my opinion, daily login mission is good to motivate landers to check for interesting stuff daily and ofcourse Torum will benefit from healthy daily traffic.
I put like 5 posts second to daily login because most of us prefers to observe then to engage. Read posts or threads, like the ones you like, and once you reach 5, claim 3 XTM. In my opinion, this encourages landers to view others’ posts which preserves the life of Torum because without views is the same as a near death platform.
Comment on posts or threads you feel like commenting and once you reached 3, claim 1 XTM. In my opinion, this encourages engagement between which preserves the mind of Torum because without engagement is the same as a zombie platform. However, this mission is misused by spammers where they comment without any intention except for the reward only. Spams are comments like “good”, “nice”, “cool”, although this is not spam in regular social media but it is spam here because get XTM for commenting them. This actually zombifies the platform where spammers takes the reward without intending to deliver value to the platform which is the same as stealing XTM. I will discuss spam in a separate article but for now I ask not to spam because you will be killing Torum and if it dies then the XTM you stole will worth nothing (such a waste of time and energy).
Spread a post or thread on your feed and claim 3 XTM. Other social media calls this share, repost, retweet, reblog, etc. This is good to give exposure to quality post and I think spam will not affect much as long as the spreaded post or thread have value.
Create a post with at least some value and claim 1 XTM. The heart of social media where it will be empty without one. I placed this in the last sections since most people I know loves being an observer more but if the platform have less post then it should be in the first sections. Anti spam applies extra hard on posts compared to comments because posts are the root and comments are the branch. If the root itself is spammed then never will quality comments occured. Personally, I can tolerate spam comments but never spam posts.
Create a thread with at least some value and claim 1 XTM. Join or create a clan first to make thread where a thread is longer than a post, it can even be a full article and therefore spam is most untoleratible here.
