Read the initial paper here.
Our witness name is 'steemgigs' and we have been on the steem blockchain for up to '3 years'. Leading up to marlians.com, we have carried out many community endeavors starting with 'tags'. Some successful tags have been '#untalented', '#teardrops', '#steemgigs', '#ourmamaterry' and the more recent '#ulog', which was been used by some 5,600 steemians and which emanated 'some 20,000 posts & 197,000 comments' after the first 4-months of its inception. See recent stats.
All our projects have built on the steem blockchain so far. Besides marlians.com, we have a collection of projects, 'ongoing & upcoming' and here is a small list:
Our projects target 'real human growth'; applies 'blockchain technology' to use in returning 'value' to 'humans' and emanates 'down-to-earth' innovations. When it comes to our reward-distribution model, we apply one called 'proof of tears', rewarding activities that 'mine the human'.
Marlians is a project emanating from the Teardrops ecosystem and carries similar tenets. It is a SCOT-enabled steem-interface that is opened to 'all content-type' and 'all locations', aiming at rewarding 'greatness' or 'true celebrity-hood'. Besides, it seeks to reward things like, 'display of human virtues', 'attempts at out-of-the-boxness', un(dis)talentedness, 'past deeds', 'activities that mine the human' etc
Marlians applies a 'surpassinggoogle' paradigm, aiming at removing all 'barriers to entry' from 'everything good', making 'everything good' available to every(any)one; abating half-humanism & hand-to-mouthism and emanating 'generation fixers'.
"Content" thus, is key aspect of our model, where "content is queen"; dynamic, ever-refreshing and 'a product of U'.
We will play out an entire curriculum that that propels 'content-creation and content-curation' as a tool to 'mine the human'. This means that over the course of time, "content" on marlians.com will begin to tend towards "ulogging-style content".
Marlians.com is open to everyone; 'each human'! However, our front-end as a theme called "naijan", enabling us to 'target the masses' more efficiently, by feeding off social-trends that emanate from a particular location and that we are well-familiar with.
Note that our enterprise model seeks to explore the use of 'viral tags' and this is the reason behind having a UI-theme. Read more.
When Should I Use The #marlians tag?
We welcome and support 'all content-type' and 'all locations'. We value each human.
We are also about "uniting communities". This means that we will welcome and support content from other steem tribes and this is already in motion.
We are a home and a close-knit family 'moving together' and this means that we will share "even our limited resources". To this effect, we are evolving a portfolio in 'steem-tribes-stake' that we use to curate 'content from other tribes' found on 'marlians.com' and our portfolio currently looks like this:
- #spt - More than 100K stake
- #aaa - More than 100K stake
- #creativecoin - Around 13K stake
- #sportstalk - More than 1M stake
- #pal - Almost 4K stake
- #steemleo - Almost 4K stake
- #lassecash - More than 60K stake
We aren't so executive. The 'paradigms of the world' is shifting. There is 'rare intel' even in the hands of the 'legit illiterate'. We are about 'beautiful disruption'; sifting 'sense' even from 'nonsense'. So that the world finds 'balance', we are about emanating down-to-earth innovations; taking the more-testimonial harder route.
Our aim is to return 'value' to 'human'. "Everyone has something to offer". Flaws allowed!
The 'MARLIANS token offering' covers the following:
- Initial distribution
- Ongoing distribution
Since, we are targeting the masses and aiming to create a home for 'each human', a maximum of 5,000,000 MARLIANS will issued first or as needed and here is a breakdown of how:
- 30 percent to '@marlians'. (Since our 'growth' model involves making each 'tag' sticky and buildingautonomously-grown communities', the said amount will be staked across 'a growing number of community-based accounts' to serve respective 'tags'. See sample of our communities here and here. The 'influence' of these community-based accounts will be controlled by 'a growing number of 'certified' uloggers' who would oversee and grow these respective tag-spaces and 'eventual communities'. As we complete the development of our automation-tools, 'certified uloggers' who oversee respective communities, will be able to summon a 'related community-based account' to vote, 'only on others' who have contributed content under a tag that they oversee. Ultimately, the said '30 percent' will be used primarily to shape our platform with focus on 'powering communities'. It will also be used to effect a 'burn-mechanism', where that is necessary.)
- 10 percent to team/certified uloggers: (Speaking of a team, we want to have a 'wide jurisdiction' of members. While we can name some core team-members, like @tobias-g, @eastmael, @lagosnewyorker, @surpassinggoogle we intend to involve everyone. This means, that our team will constitute also of 'certified uloggers' who have become 'true fans' of what we represent and are abreast with each aspect of our ecosystem. To create a home on marlians.com, we will look to share a portion of the said '10 percent' with 'certified uloggers' who become part of the team. For a start, we will share 100,000 MARLIANS among the aforementioned users to enable us curate marlians.com more efficiently. More details about our growing team will be made available in subsequent updates.)
- 25% goes to 'drops' (tear-drops): (It will be an ongoing type of 'drop', one that targets 'project growth' and 'real human growth'. A top consideration in our drops is 'some 5,600 steemians' who have ulogged. We also want to unite communities; thus, we will also derive 'a list' based on 'an analysis of various tribes' and give 'drops' to active users from these tribes. Then, there will be ongoing 'drops', that rewards 'activities that mine the human', 'past deeds' etc Ultimately our drops will be gradual and ongoing and this has already started. Tomorrow, we will be sending out MARLIANS (drops) to some '362 early users'. We will progressively publish related-updates)
- 5% goes to '@marlians.macrohard': (This a fund to aid development, especially 'UI/UX development'. We want to be open to contributions from 'community developers/programmers' and we will need a means to curate their contributions or make 'direct payments'. Where necessary, some of these fund may be sold strategical to accrue steem for 'account-claims', 'purchasing stake in other tribes to support our community', 'pay developers in steem' etc. For the most part, the said 5% will be staked and used to curate 'programming-related content/contributions' found on '#macrohard' etc.
- 30% to sales (We will have " large sell-orders" as needed but starting at 0.2 STEEM, "the original MARLIANS price" and iterate this amount but only towards a higher price. "Proceeds" will be used primarily to 'power-up STEEM', to enable us on-board more users (steem-account-claims) and support our existing community directly on steem. Some proceeds can also go towards further development, AD-budget etc We will need to weigh matters when it comes to things like an 'IEO' etc as we would like to get MARLIANS on other exchanges too. Note: Some portion of this 30% was already put on the market at the start of 'marlians.com' as mentioned here. A portion of this amount was sold but our set-price has stayed at '0.2 STEEM' since then. The current 'price of MARLIANS' as seen on steem-engine is a reflection of 'the price' as determined by the community.)
Proof of Brain/Tears
Besides the initial issuance of MARLIANS, the ongoing distribution of MARLIANS is handled by SCOT, via a 'proof of brain' model.
As we are trying to implement a 'proof of tears' variation of distribution, we are still analyzing our platform to ascertain the best token-emission-rate. This means that the current pool or token emission-rate may be increased where necessary, to make it sufficient for our plans to 'cater to each human'.
The current token-emission currently constitutes 'hundred percent' of the 'ongoing distribution' and is currently set to reduce by 1% each year, until it gets to 4%, whereupon it stays.
We will make an announcement if the token-emission-rate changes.
Proof of Mining
We may consider have this in the near future. Where that happens, there will be only 'a limited amount of miners' and 'proof of mining' will constitute only a small percent of the 'ongoing distribution'.
When it comes to 'growth', we want it to be organic and "inside-out" and with primary focus on 'real human growth'. Our success isn't measured in 'bulls or bears' and to this effect, we need a strong-based of 'humans' & 'true fans'. Thus, we are building our whole ecosystem around a growing 'greylist of certified uloggers'. Every(any)one can get certified by completing the four simple-steps here.
Besides, using simple 'tags', we will be playing out 'entire curriculum(s)' modeled to 'mine the human'.
Where we can emanate 'true celebrities', many more noble dreams will stem forth; many more generations will be fixed.
Where we manage to 'shine' together and shine forth this 'particular breed of shine', even tunnels will find light and the masses will come around.
As reiterated earlier and here, we will use the simple things that we have to 'create a home on marlians.com', starting with 'tags'. Certified uloggers will be able to oversee respective tags in relation to their interests/noble-dreams and be given extra-influence to grow these spaces.
We will also unite other steem-communites/tribes via 'tags' and create a home on marlians.com first. Then, once 'marlians.com' is renown across the internet as 'a home', "the people will come home".
As regards innovation, we will emanate 'down-to-earth innovations' dynamically, all posed to further return 'value' to humans. One such innovation is 'ulogging'. Read more about ulogging here.
As regards curation, we will 'curate the human' primarily. We want to use curation as a tool 'to show care'; as a tool to 'mine the human'. Thus, via curation we will also reward things like 'past deeds', un(dis)talentedness, 'display of human virtues' etc; further removing 'all barriers to entry' and creating a home.
These among other things is our edge.
In due time, once a home is set; 'sticky tags', 'trendy tags' etc, we will begin to reach out to 'the rest of the world', inviting to 'a home' whereupon they can find reputable 'true fans'.
Utility/Sinks - MARLIANS
- In the near term, we will aim at creating 'sticky tags'; after which 'users' will be able to pay 'in MARLIANS' to have featured banners/posts/updates 'per tag-space'. See sample of such a tag on 'https:/www.marlians.com/created/ulog'
- We already have a post-promotion feature that allows users to 'pay in MARLIANS'.
- Users will be able to avail of 'consultancy services' from reputable steemians on 'https://www.marlians.com/bropro'.

We are simply 'creating a home'. This is our primary focus!
We aren't out to "promise gains or dividends to users". Our keen interest is in using 'even our limited resources' to help each of our user grow; "real human growth!" We simply want to create a home; a home that moves together.
Thus, our ecosystem is build around a growing 'greylist of certified uloggers'.
As we are building around 'a grey-list of certified uloggers', these ones will pay a small amount each month, 'always in the range of 1-USD'. Currently, this payment is done 'in STEEM'.
As we begin to derive solid 'stats' in terms of 'user-base per tag' etc, we will begin to on-board mainstream social-influencers etc who can avail of 'targeted paid ad-spaces' on these respective tags.
We will also look to grow the user-base of our various TV(s) to raise revenue via mainstream ADs (YouTube) etc and where deemed feasible, we may make use of google ADs on marlians.com etc
Most Use Of Funds Will Go Towards Project Development & Communities.
We will build and innovate dynamically. Yes, we will continue to emanate down-to-earth innovations aimed at 'returning value to human'. Besides marlians.com, here are other major projects that we are building:
- A' 7-days payout' window.

Marlians.com wants to offer a 'social experience' filled with 'close-knit communities'. We love what steem represents and we want to further its growth. Where necessary, we may switch over to SMT, whenever it is implemented.
We aren't here to offering promises of gains or profits to our users. The token price as seen on steem-engine isn't determined by 'us' and fluctuates based on the value that 'users of the token' give it.
Your Boy Terry
First 1000 certified uloggers will get 50 MARLIANS. This aside other ongoing drops.
Step 2: Do a 'ulog' via 'marlians.com' discussing the process of 'how you became a certified ulogger'. Make sure to use '#ulog'.
Step 3: Subscribe to 'UloggersTV YouTube'.
Step 4: Fill up this google form.
If you desire, you can DM '@surpassinggoogle#1660' on discord when you are done with the steps, to hasten the process.
Note: Where you get certified now, your payment ("one month certification") hasn't started counting yet but you will already be 'certified'. This is a bonus. We will notify you when "the one month" starts counting (after we have setup our automation-tools).
