Introducing HUNT Platform - Front Page for Product Influencers and Makers by Token Economy

in #steemhunt3 years ago (edited)


Hello hunters and Steemians!
Today, we are proud to introduce our vision/roadmap via our new HUNT token economy website -

1. Steemhunt is all about Product Influencers

If you love to see innovative cool products, be the first to discover them, and tell others about them, you are a product influencer. Your word of mouth has far more impact than your average person. Your initial attention on new products always helps makers to push their product building further.

Steemhunt has become a solid playing field for product early-adopters, geeks, alpha nerds, and all kinds of tech-savvy people. Already 16,555 cool products have been discovered, and $85,573.94 hunter rewards have been generated over 184 days on top of Steem Blockchain (as of Aug 19th, 2018).

2. Vision - Front Page for Product Influencers and Makers by HUNT Token Economy

Those communities have been the most renowned habitats for early-adopters so far. Their daily visitors are over 13 million (ref -, but it’s impossible to calculate their valuation because the business models are so varied (or even don’t exist).

What if those communities become tokenized like Steemit? Imagine how much the valuation of those communities would be if their members could get rewards for their dedicated contribution? That’s what we have tried so far. During our five months of operations, Steemhunt has tried to create a TOKENIZED PRODUCT HUNT to motivate the dedicated hunters, and the result has far exceeded our expectations.

Steemhunt already has over 3 times more daily submissions, 100 times more daily upvotes per user, and 800 times more daily comments per user than Product Hunt. We can see how a well tokenized community can have a more active user base than others.


So, it is time to move onto the next step. Steemhunt will evolve to become a HUNT Platform, a decentralised community platform for early-adapters fuelled by token economy by creating three main community platforms:

  1. Steemhunt - a community where hunters introduce cool new products
  2. Reviewhunt - a marketing channel where makers suggest large discounts or bounties in return for quality reviews from hunters
  3. Ideahunt - a Kickstarter-like platform where makers run crowdfunding campaigns

(Steemhunt is a base community of the HUNT platform for product influencers)

(Reviewhunt will attract makers to suggest review campaigns for hunters)

(Ideahunt will make a crowdfunding platform)

3. HUNT Token will Make an Interchangeable Ecosystem between Makers and Product Influencers

HUNT tokens will be issued via the Smart Media Token system, and become an interchangeable currency on the HUNT platforms. HUNT tokens can be both GAINED and USED on our platform in the following ways:

  1. Hunters earn HUNT tokens by sharing/upvoting cool new products on Steemhunt.
  2. Makers buy HUNT tokens to post bounties or sell products with discounted prices in Reviewhunt in return for quality reviews. Hunters can use HUNT tokens to purchase products or earn tokens from makers.
  3. Hunters can back crowdfunding projects by using HUNT tokens.

4. No Crowd Sale, 50% Airdrop to Focus on Product/Community Building

The most important KSF (Key Successful Factor) of the HUNT platform is to gather as many product influencers as possible and amplify our community activities, rather than raising funds via crowd sales.

Also, the participants of crowd sales are more likely to be investors, rather than direct users. Even if we raise the funds successfully, we should use them for the marketing to attract our users. As you know, running the public ICO has also high legal risks. So, running crowd sales would cause a significant delay in our product/community building.

So, we won’t run any public token sales. Instead, 50% of the tokens are airdropped for our target users so that the HUNT platform can invite many product influencers. Every airdrop category is linked with our expected target behaviors in order to successfully create the seed users on the HUNT platform.

  1. Airdrop for Steem Power holders (100M) increases attention on the Steem community, and will add-value to the Smart Media Token system launch.
  2. Airdrop for Steem Power sponsors (45M) brings STEEM rewards for hunters so that the early hunters can become more motivated.
  3. Bounty airdrops for hunters (105M) are designed to upvote more on Steemhunt, and refer new users to be a hunter (this bounty will be initiated after HF20).

5. We DON’T have time to Create 99% fictional paper

Creating an eye-catching and highly detailed whitepaper becomes one of the most important parts for many blockchain projects. As well as platform coins, many decentralised applications are writing gazilion-page-long whitepapers - most of the contents are fictional and nobody bothers to finish reading it.

HUNT platform is simple to understand, it’s a Steem dApp so there’s no need to explain the blockchain technology. Also, this is a community-oriented project, so the value of the token is highly linked to the community value. Thus, we have no reasons to create a complicated fictional paper, instead we should focus on building this community platform.

6. Private Token Sales are Initiated

We will allocate 20% of the initially issued HUNT tokens for the investors via private token sales in order to set up a company/team. Again, we don’t need investors who are just interested in pump and dump opportunities by participating in pre-sale (with largely discounted prices so that they can dump later for the public token sale price). We need investors who are looking for REAL blockchain-based services that are actively boosting the REAL user base.

Please contact us via email if you are interested in participating in our private sale:
[email protected] (the minimum purchase is over $20K). We will send you a concise and easy-to-read pitch deck and token sales details.

7. HUNT Sign-up Interface and Aggressive New User Promotion

The target personas of the HUNT platform are innovators and early-adopters on the diffusion of innovation curve. Their population ranges from 2 - 10% on average. Steemhunt has already attracted 3% of the active users from Steemit to become active hunters, so we think we may have already hit the ceiling portion in relation to tech-based products (ref - To scale up our user base further, we need to focus more on those target users from outside of Steem communities.

After we raise the private investment successfully, the HUNT platform will launch its independent sign-up interface, this means that users will no longer need to register through It will just be the same sign-up interface as other website, with no need to wait for the 1-week-long email confirmation.

With this new sign-up interface, we will finally initiate the new user referral airdrop. Hunters will be able to create their referral link to encourage new users to join the HUNT platform, and then both users will receive HUNT tokens in return.

8. Over 250 Community Members Worldwide Involved in Team Operations

HUNT is run by a global product-oriented team and role-based community members. We have a dev team in S.Korea and operational team in Ireland. We also have worldwide community roles - 10 moderators who check all submissions on Steemhunt to maintain the quality of the leaderboard, and 18 influencers who dig out undervalued hunting posts and kick-start discussions for cool products. Finally, there are over 230 sponsors who support our project by delegating their Steem Power with over 1.6 million SP (as of Aug 19th, 2018).

Please see our vision/roadmap to see how we are building the world-first decentralised product influencer community platform.

It's great to see the hunt platform and the entire steem blockchain growing into a much larger ecosystem. Steemhunt is one of platforms that has really worked out for many of us. It's a platform that's so easy to use and all you got to do to get your share of the reward pool is follow the posting guidelines and rules. I think it is a platform that has really tried very hard to make or rather turn the idea of fairness in getting rewards a reality. It is one of the main platforms built on the Steem blockchain that is all inclusive and gives reward to anybody regardless of whether one is a beginning plankton or an established whale.
Steemhunt is actually empowering and giving back to the community. Talk of getting value back for giving value :) I would definitely recommend this platform to anybody that is just getting started with blogging on Steem. Pretty positive in the near future it will be one of the most used SMTs platform in the entire Steem ecosystem or maybe even the most used product hunt platform globally . Nothing is impossible. Everything is possible.
I would also love to comment on the Hunt token airdrop program .The Airdrop program has been working as smooth as expected and it is well done to you guys for a great job. Interested to see how the Hunt tokenomics plays out once you are fully launched.
I can't wait to see the entire Hunt platform launch.Many thanks to Steemhunt for what you are doing for the community.

Very well written and explanatory text.

Hello @tabris @project7

I am very glad to be a part of this project. The vision being casted here is very huge.

I send Notifications to Makers from time to time outside SteemHunt telling them about their products I featured, they always have a positive feedback . Below is a screenshot from my contact to the Undraw Maker.

Screenshot (140).png

SO I believe that the outside world would Love Steem Hunt.

Keep up the great work.


Hey, this is awesome! Do you find the makers manually or use some automated tool?? (By the way, I love unDraw)

Most of the Makers has product Hunt and also Twitter profiles so it is easy to connect with them.

I actually found out about Undraw on Twitter, when Nina tweeted about it.

LOVING and going to even enjoy more about this platform. This has been the best experience so far, for me, on a blockchain ICO... I am really eager to know the fruit of the last weeks/months work. I wish everyone involved on the platform, that I had the pleasure to interact with, the best of all endeavours. I am hoping to become a greater evangelist/critic/investor/happy user of it, in a near future.

Until then... HUNTforMore!

Upvoting myself had to be done... The main idea here is to broadcast how much excited I am and to show everyone involved in the project, that the cause of ALL efforts is just emerging. Many have put hours of endless sleepless nights... many enjoyed charismatic conversations overnight with users and investors of the platform. Others, just hold tight, to their beliefs and principles...

But one thing is for sure, the team that made it possible has amazingly archived something I value here. Thank for that!

PS.: I will be closely monitoring users/participators/investors and most importantly, idealists that can provide IP to open source community. My interest lays on future tech that can provide further technological developments of blockchain evolution.

Looks like this is one of the projects that'll turn the initial vision of Steem's founders into reality, where social interaction and the attention economy are merging and building markets of the future.


Could you specify this part of the post a bit more:

Already (...) $85,573.94 hunter rewards have been generated over 184 days on top of Steem Blockchain.

What does it actually mean that hunter rewards have been generated on the Steem BC? Are these virtual tokens that can be exchanged into real tokens later on, once SMTs are rolled out?

Hi, that " $85,573.94 hunter rewards" -> means SBD amount generated so far via HUNT token is not been issued/listed in the market yet. Later on when the HUNT tokens are issued via SMT, you may be able to trade via DEX or other markets if they are listed.

Awesome, thanks for the detailed explanation!

That amount is Rewards from votes, for hunting products.

You can claim your hunt tokens on
Where the airdrop is 1:1

Interesting... So 1:1 = Hunt : Steem?

Yes correct but you can only claim one time, so lets say you claim than power up some more you cannot claim again for the new SP.

Yeah the thought of this is amazing and it’s scaling very well.

I believe it will be ERC-20 tokens and then when SMTs release, users will be able to swap.

I hope this project works well.

Nice concept bro. Hunt

This post has been just added as new item to timeline of Steemhunt on Steem Projects.

If you want to be notified about new updates from this project, register on Steem Projects and add Steemhunt to your favorite projects.

A large portion of these projects pay you to keep a publicizing bar open on your screen. ... Since watching a full-screen promotion requires your complete consideration and you can't do anything.

There are interesting enough metrics to aim for a mass scale adoption. I wish you the best as this project and development moves forward onto a new stage. Towards scale.

I am proud now I jumped in from the beginning.

Very professional written with a great long term vision.

Congratulations! Resteemed

This is really awesome. In fact, I was also contacted by Xiatong, writing of Langogo.

He was giving thanks for my post on Steemhunt!

that's awesome! thanks so much :)

Hyped does not even begin to describe, so so thankful to be a part of the community and to get to see all of the team's hard work start to unfold...


@steemhunt Two days ago I registered on the platform, I'm taking my first steps, every day I learn something new, I'm very excited about the work methodology, after my training time, I hope to actively contribute to the platform.
Congratulations to the whole team for the great work they are developing
I wish you all the success you deserve

Hi @jlufer! Im looking forward into your next hunt!

Hello dear friend @chuuuckie how are you?
I am learning to publish on the platform, publish some hunting but without success yet, you can go to see if you want
Soon I will visit my friends again, I have them neglected
I wish you an excellent week

Awesome Guys, and don't waste time on the whitepaper as your model already works. If people ask for one, send them the link to and let them take a look around :-P

I truly believe SteemHunt is the model people should be following to launch a 'real' Steem dApp.

You might not have been the first to arrive at this party, but your rapid deployment and steady roadmap suggest you'll certainly finish near the top.

Great job!

This is really a great idea....i love it

Don't miss this project with new technologies and will be successful in the future. Become a part of this technology with this project. New technologies are new opportunities. This company looks very worthy and interesting, I think it has a great future. I believe in the future of this project. His will become mainstream in the future. I'm sure of this too. It is not surprising that this project has already gathered so many like-minded people and supporters ready to support you and be part of such a strong and confident team.9935824-thumbs-up-excellent.jpg

Congrats on this successful platform. More power to Steemhunt!

ive used this platform a bit before and it was cool

Wow, congratulation for all steemhunt's teams (owners, moderators and influencers).

It's an honor for me to have the opportunity to join in this awesome platform.

HUNT token looking forward to work in this community let me know if I can participate to grow this community

I am proud being a part of this great project. This project really massive and influential as well. I am congratulating all the members from the bottom of my heart.

wish you guys luck and prosperity, hope steemhunt becomes an honest brand and set an example for blockchain community.

Wow ... Super excited with all the updates and the incredible advances that come to the project. I feel happy and proud to be part (albeit small) of this wonderful project. Thanks and congratulations team.

I own and operate a global vacation home rental platform (12 months free trial), still in its infancy, steemhunt is exactly what I've been looking for amongst others, to take my platform further.
I'm excited at the potential this brings, now to study, implement, test, analyse and wait for feedback.
This is going to keep me busy for a while.
I wish your team in Korea and Ireland all the best in "hunting".

Well explained, I will check out the platform and see what competitive advantage it has over other service providers. If you can reply on this comment the better. Thanks.

Well done sir,.
Very very very well written article .

Keep up the work!

It's incredibly cool to see the first SMT (in a few months) come to live. You've been working hard an taking the challenges in creating a fair and productive system very seriously. I love the triad of platforms/uses that will make HUNT a coin within a real eco system.

Glad to be a witness to this project and will follow it with pride and curiosity to see it develop even further!


Amazing work, @steemhunt team. 👏

Amazing work,the game is ON

Loving this project, a Steem based platform where quality actually rises to the top. :)
