Reminder to not Exceed your Freedom Expectation in Torum

In this article, I will talk about the terms of services section which is probably mostly ignored by users where in my observation is due to the text size, color, no emphasizing, and its location. It maybe fine for new users to ignore this for a while, but sooner or later this section is something that we must read. The two reasons are to avoid problems in the long run and to not over expect about Torum.

Torum is a unique social media platform even among crypto platforms. Torum is fun to use because of its various missions and other gamifications. Unfortunately, it is not a censorship resistant platform which means that you cannot totally post anything you want. The good news is that Torum only intends to censor obvious negative contents such as violence. This means they do not intend to censor contents that does not sound good for the governments such as London Reals repeated suspension due to journalism about COVID-19 and the mass Youtube crypto purge in new year 2020. The bad news is Torum is a transparent company where even the headquarters are known. Although they only want to censor obvious negative contents, the government and authorities can pressure them to take down contents that they do not approve. If you think that this bad news does not affect the general crypto community then think again. Torum is design for crypto startups to come and interract with the community and what happens if they decide to launch an intial coin offering (ICO) or initial exchange offering (IEO) that has not been approved by The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)? Like Binance, the regulators can ask Torum to take down the ICOs, IEOs, etc, or exclude United States (US) citizens or face legal actions.

What is not okay to do:

  • Plagiarism
  • Violence & Crime
  • Bullying & Harassment
  • Fraud & Deception & Scams
  • Sexuality & Nudity
  • Obvious Spams

more details on their terms of services.

What is discouraged to do:

  • Shilling coins or other assets or investments which is anything without the disclaimer “not financial advice”.
  • Very short comments that looks like a spam.
  • Copy paste short post or comments without attribution.
  • Creating a thread with absolutely no relationship to the clan.
  • Naked referral link that does not generate featured image nor description.

Since these are not documented but discouraged by the community, please leave a comment if I missed something out.

What is okay and even encouraged but disagreed by some:

  • Cross post your original contents eventhough they have quality.
  • Posting a tweet format.
  • Non-crypto contents eventhough some landers are refreshed by them.

Actually, these are general to almost all crypto platforms.

What is okay to do:

  • Share naked links that generates feautured image or title or description related to cryptos.
  • Share your opinions about cryptos.

What is encouraged to do:

  • Share a link or content about crypto and add your own opinion.
  • Share quality and own original contents or contents you have permission to post.
  • Everything else that is inline with the vision of Torum.

Should Torum head for decentralization?

I am writing this article as Torum ambassador @0fajarpurnama0. Even if I’m not an ambassador, I will still be writing these articles but with a different time frame, maybe once a month or three months? I hope to see you soon in Torum: https://www.torum.com/signup?referral_code=0fajarpurnama0.
