We are excited to say that the Smoke Network Blockchain has officially launched! Smoke.io (also known as Smoke Network) is the worlds first blockchain cannabis social network and ecosystem. The website is running smoothly and users are already cranking out content!
There is finally a social network and ecosystem tailored for the cannabis community! The Smoke blockchain is powered by a Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) blockchain consensus (similar to STEEM and BitShares). The token or coin on the blockchain is called SMOKE.

Walmart is the world’s largest company by revenue and now they are incorporating blockchain into their supply chain. The multinational retail corporation is specifically targeting leafy green suppliers and requiring that they use blockchain technology. All of this is in an effort to prevent the spread of E-coli. Earlier this year there were outbreaks from lettuce. So to briefly summarize how Walmart is using blockchain, they are enhancing their food traceability for the safety of the consumer.
Video: How Walmart Is Using Blockchain
The end-to-end traceability system is based on distributed ledger technology (DLT) developed by computing giant IBM. According to the report, Walmart will require suppliers to implement blockchain tech by September 2019.
The company’s Vice President of Food Safety, Frank Yiannas, stated that Walmart will require a similar traceability system “for other fresh fruit and vegetable providers within the next year.” Walmart told Bloomberg that over 100 companies will be required to implement IBM’s blockchain service.
Walmart claims that blockchain tech implementation will “dramatically [improve] efficiency.”
According to Reuters, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) consulted with Walmart to improve product traceability in order to help health officials track and manage the outbreaks of foodborne illnesses.
Earlier this year, five people died and dozens more were hospitalized in an outbreak of the E. Coli virus in the U.S. The CDC estimated that over 200 people were infected in total.
Recently, Walmart filed tech-related patents for several different blockchain applications, including the improvement of secure deliveries, methods for managing smart appliances, and a healthcare information system, among others. In June, Walmart and nine other companies partnered with IBM to release a blockchain-based system for tracking food through its supply chain globally.

The Exodus team has done everyone a big favor by making EOS registration a piece of cake! They literally made a one-button method for completing the EOS token registration. This must be done before the end of the ICO on June 1st, when the real EOS blockchain launches.
“As a wallet that strives to make cryptocurrency intuitive and easy, we feel that a difficult EOS registration process is deterring and we hope that adding this function relieves some stress from blockchain banking.” – Exodus
You must have at least 0.005 ETH in your Exodus wallet to complete the process. EOS is a token on Ethereum up until the snapshot. This means fees must be paid in ETH.
If the GIF above doesn’t explain the process thoroughly enough, follow these directions: open up the “Help” menu in Exodus, then scroll down to the bottom until you see the entry for EOS registration, and then click on it. Then click on the Big Green Button and it will ask you to confirm you want to register.
Once clicked, your EOS tokens are registered to the EOS Mainnet address of your Exodus wallet!
* If you have already registered your EOS address, the message that your address is not registered will still appear. If you would like you can override the old one and register your address again from within Exodus. This will create a new EOS Mainnet address and Private Key (stored in Exodus).
If you don’t see the options to register, make sure your Exodus wallet is up to date. The current version is 1.50.1
Check out this in-depth blog post and the source for this post for more details on the the swap from EOS ERC-20 tokens to mainnet assets.
