OpenSeed - Development Update Feb-18

in OpenSeed4 years ago (edited)


For those new to the project, welcome. OpenSeed is a cross platform protocol and tool kit designed to help developers streamline their process by offering data persistence through the merging of on and off chain functionality. It is currently being developed by the OpenSeed team and with suggestions from the community. If you would like to get involved or would like to be a part of the conversation join our discord server by clicking here.

Development continues at a steady pace set by the two core developers currently on the team. Unlike the exhaustive list of the last development post (here) the plan is to only highlight the major changes from that post till now.

User Management

  • Steem Verification: Users can now verify their account using any private key. (please use your posting key)


  • Command Line Interface (CLI): Simple command line interface to manage OpenSeed. Current functions include.
    • Create User (Done) : Standard user
    • Create Creator (Done) : Accounts that create things (Developers,Musicians,Artists,etc.)
    • Create Tokens (Untested)
    • Create NFT (Untested)
  • Setup: Command line utility to create and OpenSeed instance. (WIP)


OpenSeed's primary goal is to create an easy to use interface for developers of all kinds to take advantage of steem and other decentralized technologies. As such creation,management, and distribution of NFTs only makes sense. At this time OpenSeed has a standard format, and the underlining maths to create the token exists, but the interface is still being developed.

Fungible Tokens

Similar to the need for NFTs we are nearing completion of a token system that can be used by developers as an internal currency for their application. We will most likely have a token as well that can be used throughout the network. Its worth noting that we will not handle the economics of the coins created by individual developers beyond giving them the tools needed to buy,sell, and trade the tokens as per the usual standards.


OpenSeed is being developed in the open over at github (link). However, the current code base isn't ready for deployment so for those wanting to spin up their own server we're not there yet. If you're keen on helping us reach our goals join out discord server here.

See you there!

P.S. We're currently on the steem proposal system (here) where we are asking for funding to help developers fund their projects using OpenSeed. So if you are interested in helping other applications join our steem community check it out and give us a vote.


This project is super exciting. It will be incredible for dApp development to be more accessible to the layman once OpenSeed is complete. Thanks for your hard work and update @bflanagin!

What's the likely arrival time now for OpenLink?

OpenLink isn't really in my purview. My primary focus is on the back end development, and godot game engine integration. However, at the rate that the front end guys are working I would say maybe end of the month would be a good guess for MVP 1. Assuming everyone stays in good health and motivated.

Sounds good going.

I just dropped my vote on your SPS proposal. You are only 2.5m SP off getting funding . Presumably that should help press it forward.

Let me know if you or @andrarchy does a SPS proposal update and I will include it in the Steem News.

I'm not a developper and I'm not sure that I understand everything correctly. Would it be theoretically correct that you could use open link to log in with a wordpress website (Maybe a corresponding wordpress plugin could be developped)? It would be amazing to be able to link steem userdata and wallets to wordpess sites...

Good question, there would be no reason why you couldn't use OpenSeed (OpenLink is a chat application built using OpenSeed) with Wordpress. However, there would need to be a wordpress plugin created which isn't currently our focus.

Thanks a lot for your answer. From a personal point of view I would be thrilled if people could log in with their steem profile to my wordpress. I imagine it would be possible to use the integrated wallet to use for on site paiments.

This is just one use case and I think it's could be a revolutionary technology. Will vote for your sps immediately ;-)
