Are you ready for the project, which has the ability to show the world, how valuable and powerful Steem actually is?
Well, I am very excited to introduce what I've been working on for the recent weeks.
Steem is one of the most undervalued blockchain projects, based on my subjective view.
Sadly, many people mistake Steem with Steemit.com and vice-versa. But in fact, Steemit.com was the first dApp on Steem and since then, many more have been developed.
However, until now, there was no real way to truly see how diverse and successful in terms of bringing users to crypto, the Steem ecosystem actually is (besides steemprojects.com.
With the introduction of SteemApps.com, everyone is now able to see the value of Steem and it's ecosystem based on the real data.
The first step in launching SteemApps.com was to create a Minimal Viable Product to collect data of apps on Steem and display those in a ranking, in addition with an API endpoint.
This step has been completed and the Alpha version was released today, 15th December 2018.
- Version 1.1
- Add all remaining apps, dApps & interfaces
- Improve data for existing apps (More about this further below)
- Improve algorithm for rank-calculation
- Add more data-points (post-payouts, ...) for apps
- Contact sites like https://www.stateofthedapps.com, https://www.dappradar.com & co. for a listing of Steem Apps (possibly via API endpoint)
- Fix Bugs
- Version 1.2
- Add detail pages for Apps (for detailed overview and more data)
- Implement search engine
- Implement submit a formula for easier App-onboarding
- Create a stats overview for all Apps & Steem
- ... and more
- Version 1.3
- Currently, STEEMSQL is being used, but the goal is to leverage a private node to get all the data
- ... and more
As you can see, there's a lot planned for SteemApps.com, but the first goal was to release a lean web app.
The next post will include more details about the technical specs, how ranks are calculated, etc.
Call to Apps
I know that a few apps are still missing and since I personally don't know all info about each app (accounts, description, etc.) - I want to make a call for all people in charge of Apps on Steem:
Please join the
Steem Apps discord-server (https://discord.gg/ug4HdcU).
For everybody else, please feel free to join as well, especially if you'd like to give feedback or are interested in cooperating.
This project has only one goal: bringing as much value as possible for Steem.
And since we've got some very talented professionals on this blockchain, it was a no-brainer to decide for Steem Apps to become open-source.
Additionally, part of the code is also based on State of the Dapps, which was a big help of speeding up the development.

Want to collaborate?
I know for a fact that there are quite a lot of very smart people on Steem.
If you'd like to work on making SteemApps more accurate and better (regardless if I named you right now), then feel free to do exactly that! :)

Gratitude to the following Steemians
- @arcange: STEEMSQL
- @crokkon: For helping me out with the SQL queries.
- @upheaver: For giving valuable feedback and helping out.
Many of my recent posts were very positive in the sense of trying to bring as much positivity to Steem as possible. Some steemians even argued that they were too positive or simply just hollow words.
Well, I personally wouldn't have been able to create this project, without the positivity mindset to believe in Steem.
And I want to thank all the Steemians who kept up the positivity over the recent weeks.
Regardless, of the price, just looking at the rankings of apps shows how successful Steem is in bringing people into the crypto-sphere.
Now with that said, this project is for you, the Steem community - that's why it's also open-source.
Let's show the world what Steem is made of.
WE ARE STEEM!
Do you believe that my work is valuable for Steem? Then please vote for me as witness.
