As of right now, our team maintains and continue to develop following services, opensource.

Do you think Ecency brings value to Hive?

With this proposal we aim to cover a lot of the features on our roadmap as well as help us support open infrastructure to scale and offer unique, niche products and features. Please support Ecency in our mission to create opensource, decentralized, thriving, innovative softwares for Web3.0 communities!

Explanation of proposal costs

90% of these funds will be used to develop new features and 10% covers server costs. Plus Witness earnings from @good-karma which is already dedicated to this mission, additional funds will certainly help bring back couple more mobile developers and more actively push our mobile onboarding efforts. We also have regular newsletters and press-release updates to help with Hive and Ecency branding. Continuously add missing features to Ecency opensource website. Improve gamification via Pointing system that converts to Tokens, explore avenues of innovation on community points/tokens system. More focus on community spaces and customisations. Improve code documentation so we get more developers involved, building, discussing, cloning projects.

Benefits

Fastest, secure, feature-full, unique and opensource website frontend, mobile application and desktop interface. Dedicated infrastructure to support and serve ever growing visits.
Image hosting instance that can serve you even oldest images from years ago. Try it our on ecency.com and you will know what we mean, open any post older than 3-4 years and see if images load for you. We noticed some images are visible in our instance that are missing from other main instance. Dedicated Blockchain RPC node to handle traffic on Ecency apps and services.
And of course unique user experience and simple, quick signup that helps onboarding new people into blockchain social, blockchain tokens, trading, blockchain discovery and blockchain communities world.

Costs

Daily: 369 HBD
Monthly: 11070 HBD

Labor (Development+Management): ~160x2 hours per month, 9600 HBD
Recurring costs (Servers): ~$2100, ~2100 HBD

We have 5 developers and 1 designer/illustrator and getting all of them full time is not reasonable ask, so we are load balancing it with 2 full time person. But 5 devs will be working, 2 person mobile, 3 person (web+desktop), 2 person backend, plus 2 person designer/illustrator, all interconnected because some of us bring multiple skillset to the team.

State of DHF

  • As of right now there is around ~8 272 285 HBD available for proposals
  • Daily possible funding on Decentralized Hive Fund is ~82 722 HBD
  • We are asking Daily 369 HBD

We understand that during the duration of our proposal we may get partial funding sometimes, no funding sometimes. But it won't stop us from developing and delivering. We hope you see value Ecency brings to Hive and support us in common vision and goal!

I started using the iOS app yesterday and it’s so amazing. Well done.

I also use it on an iOS device and I am happy with it

The points earning from activity is fun. It keeps me on the app regularly.

You guys are just amazing, I started using Ecency just few days ago and I'm having a lovely experience.

Keep up the good work, the future looks very promising.

Great to hear you're enjoying Ecency!
Are you using the app or desktop version? @funshee

I'm using the app

Me too! Isn't it wonderful?
Let me know if you have questions or need any help💫

Ooh! That's so cool to know, I will keep that in mind.

Thank you.

Keep up the great work as Ecency continues to grow and expand into 2022 and beyond!💪

I’m pretty new to Ecency, but I already feel it’s my primary home. Coming from Reddit exclusively, the platform has many of the same characteristics I really enjoy; in particular, I like how it’s divided into communities. Much of the crypto/financial aspect of this platform still don’t really make sense to me, but I’m slowly getting the hang of it. Right now my favorite aspect is that we have a unique opportunity now to create the communities we wish to see. Most of my communities right now are just me, but I suspect they will grow as the overall user base increases…this is what im most looking forward to - not just posting my ideas and experiences, but learning from those of other users. One could argue that I could do that on Reddit already, which is true, but I think Ecency has the right pairing of restrictions and freedoms to really generate full-bodied, quality content. I know I’m arriving late compared to many, but I still feel excited that this is a pretty early time to get in on something awesome. Thanks for all the hard work you’re doing!

Community growths indeed will take some time and we are already seeing people creating active and engaging communities.

That’s definitely how it looks from my vantage. I really think this community has the right stuff to become something huge, and I am truly excited to be a (small) part of that growth!

You're my favourite front end and it's amazingly fast

Ecency is wonderful. Great work.

i like the addiction of tokens tab

Wow congratulations on reaching 23k global top Alexa rating! That is a really amazing feat to have accomplished. I'm still rather new to this platform but anything I can do to help and contribute I would gladly help out.

My vote doesn't really amount to much atm but you got it. I use your app quite often and I think it is most definitely the best and most rewarding front-end in terms of interaction and utility.

Voted and thanks for what is by a long way, the best and most professional DApp on the Hive blockchain.

Good to know about Ecency's description. It was especially nice to see the benefits of the Ecency's mobile apps.

We understand that during the duration of our proposal we may get partial funding sometimes, no funding sometimes.

Come on guys. No funding for one of the best, one of the most popular Hive blockchain apps? That would be a shame. Of course the amount of daily funding asked ($369 HBD) may sound high (it is more than my monthly pension-like income), but the community is also huge. The community should be able to solve the funding.

Ecency is my favorite Hive app. I am using it since the beginning (eSteem).

I give you some !PIZZA and some !LUV.

Have a nice day. All the best. Greetings from Hungary.

PIZZA!

PIZZA Holders sent $PIZZA tips in this post's comments:

That's really great. Still, the fastest UI to access Hive blockchain with many, many new features. Congrats to all team @good-karma.

it's great having your kind of persons with positive mindset in and for Hive.
Jointly we shall move Hive to a greater height.

A few weeks ago that I discovered this extraordinary world of the great ecency and despite that I feel it’s my primary home. , the platform has many of the same characteristics I really enjoy and especially the cultured and ambicious people

👏🏻 Fantastic work @ecency guys! This App is one of my daily routines and makes Hive Blockchain easy available.

Good work
Really appreciate it

I’m not sure I understand the voting method. I keep seeing lists of people?

Klasse Arbeit, die Punkte finde ich super !!!

Ecency is a beautiful application, lately I've been using the “promote” function more and more, I should have started using it earlier

That sounds fabulous. If you need anyone with JavaScript, PHP, MYSQL, SQLITE, HTML, CSS.. I’m more than prepared to work Pro Bono

Really a good structured program!

My support!
Great work as always staying on top with everything!
Keep it going :)

I am new on Hive, I registered through eccency and I think it's great

I just started using @ecency recently and can say that I'm very impressed with the speed of it....loading etc.
This has got to be the fastest front end on the Hive blockchain. Well done to you and your team @good-karma 😋👍
I support the proposal. 👍

Hey @ecency I am just wondering how come boost points are so much less worth today?

happy to be among the members of this ambicious community

Hey! For some reason, the points are returned to me and the increase in the reward for the post does not work. I don't understand the reason, please explain @ecency)
