Hi all,

and welcome to Weekly Update No. 5 from the STEEMPUNK-NET team.


That lovely beta feeling that wonderful beta feeling ...
I must say that we are really kind of extremely nervous and happy at the same time ..

The closed beta will start at NEXT Monday, on 27th of November 2017 and will run during the complete week!
Details will be given out to all closed beta participants in a short while. An extra channel in our discord server (see in the communication channels area) has been created, come and join us dear beta testers.

Please, all members of the beta join us in discord or come to the steemit chat to get instructions on how and what to install :)

The onboarding of our new graphics goddess pays off big time, her latest art can be seen under the Screenshot section. And since today she even has a Steemit Account.
So, please be gentle and give a warm welcome to @kunilunde.

Today we are going to have an update on the following topics:


Our Development team went to a great length to polish all the stuff that can be seen in the closed beta and we even managed to get the language selection done.
Additionally they managed to do the following tasks:

  • Finalization of legal texts( crappy german law...))
  • Finished the Website, go have a look at
    -- added the news section
    -- added FAQs and checked them all
    -- added the legal stuff (yay!)

Nach dem Start der Beta ist hier bestimmt wieder mehr zu sehen


Es gibt eine Menge Möglichkeiten direkt mit dem Team hinter STEEMPUNK-NET in Kontakt zu treten. Immoment sind das folgende :

Eins der wichtigsten Themen für uns ist mit EUCH in Kontakt zu kommen und auf eure Fragen und Ideen einzugehen, besucht uns einfach auf unserem Discord!


Wie bereits im Intro versprochen, hier ein paar der neuen wunderbaren Grafiken von @kunilunde.
Wir sind hellauf begeistert!

Dieses wundervolle Beta feeling ...



I am curious to see how this works out, but at the same time I am a little confused into how this will actually work (haven't got around to reading the whitepaper yet). I think my biggest question, pre-reading the white paper, is how exactly this generates steem? Like are you mining steem and then giving the players 50% or is it coming from other means? I apologize if you wrote this in a previous post, as I had missed many of them (I think this is the first I actually read) and had only really heard about this in passing. I mean gameplay holds curiosity too like how that will work but I can wait for that. Anyways, I look forward to see how this will work!

No Problem. We try to answer every question.

Once the payout will not be in the beta, not until the Live. But beta users will be also rewarded for help. With special items for the live version or other things. We still have to consider this in general.

For the live, the distribution is made from the following items

  • All posts (made by STEEMPUNK-NET) generate SBD (like this Post)
    (it's all gonna be on the separate account here. then everything is transparent)
  • There will be a shop system where you can buy items. (for Housing / Crafting Items)
  • There are many other ideas that we have planned for the future. For example, a own Wittnes node. (Blockchain Bridge is already running, a Wittnes Node would only be the next step)

Of all the revenue we want to return some of it back to the users.

But please understand that we can't pay out any big sums of money from the beginning. :-)
We built the game in 5 weeks to bring a little more fun into Steemit.

Yes I totally understand and I think that this is honestly a really cool idea. I am excited to see the end result!

My question is also in reference to my comment

You've described only how you will collect revenue but not how you will distribute it, either the method (up votes, direct transfers, etc.) or the scheme (on what basis are players rewarded?)

I'd be interested to know this, I think it would complete the understanding.

that's not really worked out yet. but we'd do it in percentages. means that we would allocate % to the individual distribution "areas".
for example:

  • the player with the most won fights gets 1% of the pool
  • the player who owns the private key a week gets 5% of the pool
  • the player with the most found items gets 1% of the pool

in this direction it will go :-)

Thanks for the answer, that answers your intention on the distribution scheme, but still not on on method. But I won't press further and I look forward to following your development. 😇

just asks. Thats ok. I saw this as clear :D

we would then transfer this directly to your account. You don't have to do anything. Every player in steemit has a wallet. We have the names of the players, your Steemit name is associated with the STEEMPUNK-NET name. They're the same ones. That's why we also have the Wallet address ;-)

Thanks, that wasn't clear, I know a lot of other services use up votes as "payment" instead of hard assets.

Vote & Resteem, auch wieder dabei in der wöchentlichen Linkliste.

Thanks to all you hard working people that are making this possible behind the scenes.

thanks for your nice comment. I appreciate that very much

Can't wait :D Gogogo buddies :D

we do our best. we do our best. we do our best. :P

I bet you do :D

Dang. I missed the announcement that you were looking for beta testers. Give me a holler if you need an alternate!

well lets see how it turns out, we limited numbers to have a clear start. If everything is going as expected we could soon recall this limit and go directly into the open beta.
But lets see, i like to be a bit cautious ;)

Is this game run with a browser plugin? Was it custom coded or adapted from another project? I'm so interested in this!

Thanks for the Question.
The whole thing is solved via browser plugins. it uses iframes and display the gui, whichs comes from our servers.

All Code is written by us. Plugins, Game, Management System and so on. I hope I could answer your questions. :-)

Are the plugins going to be opensource?

The browser plugin definitively. So everybody can see the communication and integration into Steemit. The underlying system is called QUIQQER. This is also OpenSource.

I will include this in the FAQ and describe it in more detailed ;-)

(For some QUIQQER modules we have to decide if we want to publish them.)

Thank you very much for answering my questions!!

I forgot something else. if you have any more questions, we have summarized some FAQs

@jedigeiss Well bro informative post keep sharing :)

great job, can't wait for Monday!

Ich bin immer noch total begeistert von den neuen Icons, find die einfach nur klasse!

Ja, die sehen bombig aus. Ich kann immer noch nicht verarbeiten das kunilunde nur 20min für ein icon braucht :D

Umm, this sounds amazing. another amazing addition to the blockchain that I'm just hearing about, I joined the server and checked out the sight. that's amazing it's a browser extension, can't wait to try it out.

we are working hard to get it delivered as soon as possible :) stay tuned!

Oh I will be man, very exciting. I read the white paper and love the graphics too, really freaking exciting.

This looks very interesting. I do after all enjoy playing games, almost as much as reading. I will be looking forward to your progress.

If you love reading and playing games ... STEEMPUNK-NET would be the perfect match for you :P

Looks extremely intriguing! :)

Thank you :-)

don't know how i missed this. let me know if you are looking for more beta testers :-0

oh hi paula, for sure we will let you know, would be a pleasure to have you on this as well :)

Thanks for the date its nearly here wow I also took a look at the website its getting better I am sure you have now alot of work to do in these next few days before we start testing good luck @jedigeiss

we will also have a lot of work to do in the coming months :D

Very cool idea and very interesting. I've been thinking about creating games on the blockchain too.

My current interest is especially how to integrate it. I don't see in your whitepaper or FAQ any specific indication of how you will integrate the game though. I understand that it will be a web browser game, and use a special plugin to do the blockchain connection, but nothing on what the integration is like besides this in the FAQ:

This integration also saves fights and actions in the blockchain. As an additional component, the activity of individual users is also built into the game to create a unique user experience. Users who are more active on Steemit and contribute to the success of the network have a better chance to win fights and find items.

So do you save kind of daily profiles or save files automatically to the players Steemit account as a post? And how are rewards earned, is it by direct transfer from a central game account, or a central game up vote bot, or just from the up votes of the community at large?

Lastly, will the game code, plugin or both be open source?

Good luck with the development! 😁

Wow, same. I'm very curious about how it will work out. I got to say though, that I haven't played any video games for quite some time already and I really long to finally play some ^^ Always loved MMORPG - Big WoW fan, so I'll definitely follow you guys on this project.
Best of luck!

information important for give me. thanks

Good job! Thanks to @alexvan you have planted 0.13 tree to save Abongphen Highland Forest in Cameroon. Help me to plant 1,000,000 trees and share my Steem Power to the others. Selfvoting is prohibited, but that should be the reason to spread the world to protect our precious environment. Check out profile of our conservation association @kedjom-keku and the founder/coordinator @martin.mikes to get more information about our conservation program. My current SP is 14328.60. Help me to plant more trees with your delegated SP.

Thanks a lot,
your @treeplanter
