Musing.io - Blockchain Q&A Website Update!

in musing •  12 days ago

Hello everyone,

It's been a busy and exciting month since launching Musing.io. For anyone that missed our introduction, Musing.io is a question and answer platform built on top of Steem. We reward users with tokens for posting quality questions and answers.

Growth

Probably the most important thing that has recently happened was a 50k Steem Power delegation to our account. After launching, we realized that there were not enough rewards given to our authors and that without proper rewards, we could not retain our users for the long term. We reached out to several key people in the community, trying hard to pitch what we were doing. Finally though, our efforts paid off and we are very thankful to have received some support. We can now more properly incentivize the users that have stayed with us since our launch.

While we are ecstatic to have 50k Steem Power, it is still only a step toward our goals. We truly believe Musing.io can be one of the great apps on Steem's blockchain, just like DTube, DLive, SteemHunt, and Utopian. We ask anyone who believes in us as well, to please support us in our efforts. Any amount of delegation at all helps. We've seen with DTube, DLive, and others, the positive effect of giving a PLATFORM the capacity to curate and incentivize their users. Steemit often gets a bad rep for all the spam and vote manipulation that goes on, and those things need to be corrected, but I think it is also just as much a sign of its immense power when used for good. Rather than focus on the negatives, we have the ability to use the potential of this blockchain to create massive value rather than massive amounts of spam. There could be millions of people posting questions and answers on Musing.io some day, creating a real competitor to Quora, Yahoo Answers, Answers.com, etc...

If you share the same thoughts, here are quick links to delegate.

100 Steem Power

1000 Steem Power

10000 Steem Power

25000 Steem Power

50000 Steem Power

100000 Steem Power

Product

We listened to everything you asked for, the most important of which was being able to post as comments rather than blog posts. When you use Musing.io now, anything you post will by default be created as a comment in one big blog post that we create. On Musing.io, it won't feel any different, but the benefit now is that you can post more freely without worrying about spamming your followers on Steemit.com.

Some people liked their posts going to their blogs however, so we have also provided the ability to post your answers to your blog if you want to. If you have something that you want more people to see, then this will be useful to you.

The next big feature is called the "Answer" tab. You will be able to see all the questions asked on Musing.io here, which makes it much easier to find something that you want to answer or write about. 

The last major addition we made was functionality for editing your content on the blockchain.

What's Next

We're bringing the ability to place images in your posts. A lot of people asked for this, and it is coming soon.

We'll also be announcing a referral program where you can invite your friends and earn Steem doing it. 

Don't forget to follow @musing on Steemit :)

Do answers still get posted as root posts or are they submitted as comments now? That was the biggest reason why I haven't used you guys in the past, but hopefully thats changed.

·

Comments now. You have the option to make it a root post if you want to though!

You got voted by @votefun thanks to Princess. We are still in early alpha, users can use us to get free upvotes. This is mainly directed towards users of the @cryptowithincin bot. We are in a few discord servers. To get full benefits, you have to be subscribed to @cryptowithincin. To support us, you can delegate to @votefun or just give this comment a upvote.

·
·

Awesome. I hope we got a section like stack-overflow on musing. I could end up helping some people and better yet, others can end up helping me with my stupid questions.

·
·

that is a very good decision! Otherwise it would be annoying, because no one literally wants to blemish his steemit site! :)

Keep up the good work! Upvoted!!

Very good initiative. I was looking for a Blockchain based Q and A platform

·

and now your search is over? :D

i like Q & A. i struggle to post solo. i find it monotone and drab. where as if i had input, i could be 'myself'
maybe its the ADHD
shrug

Great update! I really like this project, and I think it has the potential to bring a lot of new people to the Steem blockchain. Keep up the good work.

Does it possible to connect to the platform without using steemconnect?

I don't want right now to authorize Musing app (@dreply) to vote, comment and have access to json file... and be in my posting role...

I want simply to connect and explore the platform... To find some sections and how to organize all this information.

And I have some answers for asked questions... The answers that my change some people's life.

·

Why do you think steemconnect is unsafe? It is an authorized app for authentication.

·

You can't use the platform without logging in with Steemconnect right now. But why would you want to? It's a lot safer to use Steemconnect than it is to log in with your keys.

No doubt, https://musing.io is a nice platform. Still need to develop more. Would you please add night mode like https://steemit.com/.
Thanks @musing

·

YES!!!

all sites need a night mode.
upvotes to be seen more :D

·

only a 3c vote, but it still helps :D
sorry im poor :P

my blog, she doesnt do so well

This is the first time I'm hearing about @musing and I believe in this project. I've gotta explore more about this. Thanks for making the STEEM blockchain a more better place to stay

Nice info

excelente post

Another great addition for the #minnowuprising ;)

Since on Steem your likes and comments are literally worth money, some stuff is publicly available to everyone for the sake of transparency. Rest assured that Steem actually can't hide what information you are giving to them, they can't take any data that you don't already make publicly available on the Steem blockchain.

You got a 6.58% upvote from @postpromoter courtesy of @musing!

Q&A

Hey guys checkout and follow my profile to get trending ICO reviews

This Would Help Me to Get Clear All My Queries Solve with The Help Of This Platform Thank u #Musing For sharing this thought with us

The Steem blockchain is crazy succesfull when looking at how many apps have been developed based on it! The Musing.io project seems interesting although the space entering is getting more and more crowded. This increasing competition is nevertheless proof that blockchain is now a part of our day to day activities. So if you are a true believer, and recognize as well that blockchain is here to stay, we encourage you to visit Blockbasis, where users can send and receive crypto using only an email address. We aim to simplify the transaction process in order to make crypto accessible to all.

resteem your blog follow and upvote my blog thanx

I was looking forward to this post with a link to your discord channel. This is simply great @musing. Together we will make it stronger. 😊

This blockchain seems interesting

This is my first time heard of musing but it looks like user friendly and I wonder will you consider linking up account together, like I can use my steemit account on musing so I don't have to create another account?

Yes,I join Musing.It's really good project.Thanks

@musing i am just in love with it and i have a question when i answer questions of other members will i also earn something or not? please clear my doubts .

thanks for sharing .very informative

Interesting, good to have such an amazing platform. Will like to see this growing like Steemit Dtube and Dlive

i have a quation bro what is different of steemit and musing

·

Steemit is for blogging or interacting on the Steem blockchain. Musing is an app that allows you to ask and answer questions on the Steem blockchain. They are nothing like each other. Go check out musing.io, and you will see the difference quickly.

ok let see how it is working.

I just logged in, and I think, we should also should have the ability to post the question to our blog. And also I don't see an option to add an image to my question, so probably that would be a good addition.

I just learned about musing and i will play in free time

The site looks clean and is easy to use, good job!

What feature I can see is missing from the first glance is that users can't click on the categories that are represented in the question header, above the title. Example being "question asked on bitcoin" - When browsing hot this would make it easy to jump into new and interesting categories.

Keep up the good work!

Fuck this is for me

Oh nice ! I never heard about that and I am going to play around juuuust yet. :) Keep on going !

Hi there,
The other day I was thinking about a Q&A project development on top of the Steem blockchain but I had some queries regarding the Steem blockchain .

So I submitted these queries on the Beem discord channel and they pointed me at the Musing.io project.

I had a chance to have a look and it is definitively along the lines of what I was thinking about.

Obviously it wouldn't make much sense for me to start something similar from scratch.
So I was wondering if you are looking for developers to help you with the project.
I have a full time job and hence my time is a bit limited but I think this project has fantastic potential and I would be happy to contribute the best I can.

To start with, have your released the source code? Is it on github?

Thanks and well done for the all the work.

·

yes and no. remember, once upon a time, there was only 1 car company. then someone thought 'maybe i can do that better'

dont let the fact something already exists be a reason not to do what u want to do.
hope that helps.

as to if on github, im not sure

·
·

OK, thanks.

·

Oh I missed this comment. We aren't open source yet, but I'd definitely be interested in talking to you. Email me at jon@musing.io

Amazing platform to get information!!!Thank you for sharing.

I also just learned about this platform, I have already tried it and asked a question in both Spanish and English, I hope I can earn some steem to be able to buy voting power and keep growing in steemit, my question was as follows,

What arias with a voting power of up to 300 dollars?

thanks for building this platform

Hi team who are our nearest competitor and advantage on them?

You definitely need a voting bar to adjust vote %, I don't see why I have to waste a whole vote on a one sentence question if I want to upvote it :/

Other than that, wonderful idea :)

@musing, very good job it is good for every one news writer and research i like your post and i hope every people are appreciate your post, Thank you

@musing sounds interesting. it will help us a lot. thanks

hii sir tnx and Very good initiative. I was looking for a Blockchain based Q and A platform

As someone who regularly uses Quora, this is mighty great news.

There's still much to be done to make the UX comparable to that of Quora though. But i'm glad there are work done on the platform.

Do answers still get posted as root posts or are they submitted as comments now? That was the biggest reason why I haven't used you guys in the past, but hopefully thats changed.

If you really have 50k steem power, one upvote for this image poster could change anything. And there are thousands of them. Why dont you do that ?
