Save The Date: STEEM Integration With SNAX Announced For May 14th!

in steemit •  15 days ago

As you (probably) already know, I suport a blockchain project aiming at rewarding social media content without rebuilding your audience in a new network, which is called SNAX.

The project is up and running for more than a month now - tracking and rewarding Twitter accounts - and I'm happy to let you know that things are advancing fast. After integrating Twitter, as a main use case for the utility token of the blockchain (named, surprise-surprise, SNAX!) the team is moving fast towards integrating Steem with it. As a matter of fact, the integration was announced to go live on May 14th.

How does this work?

In short, you will have to pair your Steem account with a SNAX account and from now on you will be eligible for receiving SNAX on top of your Steem rewards. The rewards are allocated every two days, by a mechanism called "scoring round". Which means the Steem content for the last day is scrapped, analyzed and ranked according to SNAX's algorithm (which you may study on their white paper, if you want) and then the rewards are allocated based on the ranking.

What you can do with SNAX?

Pretty much everything you could do with STEEM in the very early days of Steemit. Which is not much, now. But, bearing in mind that SNAX is actually an EOS fork, and building dApps (or smart contracts) on the EOS blockchain is way more feasible than on Steem, then you could expect to see more use cases with the SNAX token as time goes by, and as adoption increases.

Where to go?

First, have a look at the main site: https://snax.one. If you're curious about the ins and outs, please have a look at the explorer at https://explorer.snax.one.

What to do now?

Other than saving the date and watching my feed for more posts as we are approaching the launch day, not much. You can of course educate yourself and be sure you make an informed decision, but, for now, let's just keep an eye on the SNAX blockchain.

Wanna know when you're getting paid?

I know the feeling. That's why I created steem.supply, an easy to use and accurate tool for calculating your Steemit rewards

It's free to use, but if you think this is a useful addition, I'd appreciate your witness vote.

Thank you!

Hey, @dragosroua.

Good to see you back and posting again after several days traveling, I presume.

Thanks for the heads up. I've been waiting for this type of announcement, and now there's a countdown to look forward to. This might actually be the way I get into EOS (right?), without needing to do anything else but do what I'm doing now (post-wise).

What's the pairing of the accounts going to be like? Will we need to have an account first on SNAX, or will it just automatically do that when we give them our username here? Probably need to have an account there first is my guess.

·

The pairing will go just like on Twitter: you will have to pair your Steemit username with a SNAX account. SNAX is NOT EOS, it's a fork of EOS, but pretty much everything on it works as in EOS. Looking forward to see you active in it :)

snax is not listed on coinmarketcap at the moment, thoughts ?

·

Snax launched mainnet on April 10 and is not yet listed on exchanges, but we are negotiating and working on it.

·

.

I'm equally excited to check this out. Sounds like a great initiative. I'm looking forward to be a part if the SNAX community. I will first read all other info about SNAX initiative and spread it with others as well. Thanks for this wonderful project.

I signed up to link my twitter with the expectation of steem coming soon so its good to see it happening. I need to read more into the project and see what the long term plans are and what's the best way to use it in the future.

·

Hi, you can find more information here https://medium.com/@Snax or join our discordhttps://discord.gg/qygxJAZ

It is great but I want to ask, is it only linked to twitter, can't Facebook account be connected also

·

Only Twitter for now, I don't know abut any plans to connect Facebook,and given the complexity of scrapping FB content, I doubt there will be an integration soon.

Well this is probably the best thing I've heard about in awhile. I'm definitely going to check it out. I’m curious what you think about meOS, the social media platform that is likely to come out on the EOS network in June?

·

Never heard of meOS, will check it out, thanks for the heads up.

I signed up and it is definitely promising! Looking forward to the integration with Steem!

Sounds interesting, and certainly cant hurt. This needs some exposure.

Very excited about this. I found snax an interesting project and I think the integration with steem will benefit both.

I've registered my Twitter. I did it previously, but managed to lose the key (doh!). Made sure I saved it this time. I'm interested to see how this goes.

·

Dam, Just about to go check this out, but we need a twitter account?

·
·

hahahah i think the timestamps of comments are bugged I just wrote that comment and went to see if we do need twitter and it says 2 hours ago.. We need to get Keychain or steemconnect options to get the wallet, not everyone supports twitter!

I'll add my reply here for you @dragosroua to not write too many times here. Firstly you look well familiar from the travellers circuit! Also thanks for sharing this, and your own project steem.supply! Two new things I knew nothing about!

·
·

It looks like you can just use it with Steem soon, but I don't know if you will still need Twtr to create the account.

·

what key did you loose, if I may ask steeve?

Sounds great! Yet another project with a lot of potential!

Yet another actually useful thing!

After @irelandscape created FB/Google Log-in, this could be one more plus for the crypto community.

Both of you deserve at least 10k Steem for this

is the extension safe?
it can read and modify data a user copy pastes !!!
as given in extension details - so - you give access to clipboard????

·

Extension is completely safe and open source therefore you can learn how it works.
https://github.com/SnaxFoundation/snax-browser-extension

·
·

But extension gives snax permission to data a user copy pastes.
Give me a specific answer as to what this permission does

·
·
·

This is necessary to export the private key from browser extension.

·
·
·
·

what if a user is copying a Bitcoin address or something else to paste on some other site, you can read that too?

·
·
·
·
·

You can check out all extension code on github and see what it can read.

·
·
·
·
·
·

I dont understand code. Id be happy if you can let me know or someone else who can help.

Thank you

I’m just here because I was told there would be snax

Great article! I will have to keep my eye out on this project. I had resteemed this and will vote for you as witness when I can get back to my computer.
