This is the official Genesis Post for the POCKET token. If you wish to opt-in to the Pocket protocol and claim your initial stake of 1,000,001 POCKET tokens, all you need to do is resteem this post before it is 14 days old. You don't have to vote, comment, or interact in any other way. By resteeming this post, you are announcing that you wish to participate in the POCKET protocol.
All Steem accounts are eligible to receive their POCKET stake if they have posted to Steem at least 5 times.
Once you have resteemed this post, you may pay a 1 POCKET fee to check whether your claim was successful. To do so, reply to this post with the single word
confirm. Do not write
Confirm, do not write
CONFIRM, do not write
please confirm. Only all lower case, and it must be the very first word in your reply. If your claim was successful, you will receive an automated reply telling you so. If the Pocket system is under heavy load, it may take a while for you to get your confirmation. If you write anything other than
confirm, you will receive no message whatsoever. You are under no obligation to request a confirmation that your claim was successful!
Sending POCKET Tokens
To send POCKET tokens to another Steem account, create a post (it can be a top-level post or a reply to some other post) with this exact formatting:
For example, if you want to send 1000 tokens to @biophil with the memo "thanks for creating POCKET!", you would create a post that says exactly
pocketsend:[email protected], thanks for creating POCKET!
If your send is successful, you will receive an automated message telling you so. If it is not successful, you will receive no message.

The Fine Print
By claiming your POCKET tokens, you are agreeing that you think the Pocket Protocol is a meaningful set of rules to track ownership of tokens. You are acknowledging that you are now a Pocket participant. As such, you are declaring that you are opting-in to the POCKET system, and are agreeing that you and all other such opted-in accounts (Pocket participants) have claimed their Genesis stake. No entity has given you your Genesis stake; rather, you are simply agreeing with all other Pocket participants on a set of rules (that is, the Pocket Protocol) that determines who is eligible for and who receives the POCKET tokens. @biophil, the author of the Pocket protocol, is not distributing tokens; he is merely suggesting a set of rules that all Pocket participants may agree upon. @biophil has received no compensation in exchange for POCKET genesis tokens; any income he receives for posts about the POCKET protocol is strictly to be considered blogging income, not exchange for a token.
