[STEEMFEST TAKEAWAY] The Usecases for TokenBB

in tokenbb •  3 months ago



After the @TokenBB presentation at Steemfest, we've got a lot of feedback and I came out realizing the real potential of what incentivized forums. Now, let me share with you what TokenBB is being built for and for what it isn't.

TokenBB is not competing with the existing forum softwares

This became very clear when I saw my friend browsing a Buddhist discussion forum. Tokenizing those conversations would make no sense and is completely out of place...not all social interaction need to have money attached to them.

BUT, there are spaces where it does make sense and let me showcase to you what they are.

The Market For Incentivized Forums

Social Action Forums - @CleanPlanet Project

CleanPlanet aims to reward people for cleaning up the area where they live. They are already doing this and people are filming themselves picking up garbage. It's really nice and it gives people an incentive to clean the world around them.

A forum where people share what they did and get rewarded by the moderators and other users for doing good deeds is definitely a need that isn't being filled by the current forum softwares.

Gaming Communities - @SteemMonsters, @Chibera, etc.

What if you could crowdsource most or all of the fan art, mods, maps, game guide, etc. for your game by rewarding the people with tokens? Imagine if the people who earn those tokens can then turn around and buy stuff within the game itself?

Imagine if someone is passionate about creating StarCraft maps and can actually make a living doing so? For people who create games, this technology can really help them create enthusiasm for their games.

Status of the TokenBB Project

We've been working on the software and we strongly hoped to be able to showcase it at SteemFest but last minute bugs prevented us from launching and we are sorry for the delay. Any day now, this should be online and ready for you to play with.

Once the alpha version is out, @TokenBB will be looking for more people to join the team! If you are a front-end developer who works in javascript, please make sure to contact me. If you want to get on the inside, join our discord channel and let's chat!

I have never been much of a forum guy in the past but while we talked I realised how much communities could leverage them and the cross application potential is huge for tailored content discovery and organisation. I am looking forward to what is to come.


Thanks @tarazkp, it was great to meet you at SteemFest and I'm looking forward to read your blog :-)


Took me a while to get back to this. I came home and spent time with my wife and daughter before I finally had a chance to crash and sleep. Catching up on comments is taking some time :)

It was interesting to hear about your project. I used to be really into forums as they were the main place to get support on various topics. Tokenising them is a great idea and I hope to see this get big. It's one of several areas where Steem offers a great alternative. We just have to make it more usable and then persuade people to move over. The latter is the hard part.


Send me a msg on discord :-)

Interesting! The gaming community idea is exactly what we have in mind. We would want to at some point create a central hub/market place where gamers can trade their in game items of games made using our SDK, as well as artists selling their design and music for game developers to use. I smell a chance of collaboration here may be?


Hey @cryptoctopus ! Hey TokenBB!
Thank you!
It is a pleasure to have met you and thank you for the trust you have placed in the @cleanplanet project, the first ecological project that rewards and ecocitizens' actions of collecting waste in nature in the city with proof by the photo where the video of the throwing of its waste in the public bin..... its waste as well in its right place will limit pollution of the surface of the earth and oceans.
CLEANPLANET is accessible to all steemians... and anyone can do a CLEANPLANET...
In our turn we will soon discover the TokenBB universe....
Thank you and see you soon
@cleanplanet Team

The tokenbb concept sounds very interesting. The steemit site itself is not made for posts with a lot of comments.Can tokenbb also be used to view posts with more than 100 comments that cannot be easily viewed on the steemit site itself?

$rewarding 85% 12min


Most forum software operates with multiple pages of comments under the same thread so that no page is a mile long. Down the line, we also want people who don't have a Steem account to be able to comment.

Congrats on your presentation at Steemfest! Nice work. Resteemed your post! I hope you have a wonderful time in Krakow!


oh man, this is my favorite European city so far.

TokenBB changes a lot of things. Watch how this plays out folks!

I had always thought about something similar to CleanPlanet , where in I personally would reward people for keeping their surroundings clean . Great initiative .

Petty software was not ready to showcase it at SteemFest, but I', looking forward to seeing it's features soon.

Hello @cryptoctopus,

I have been glad to meet you at SteemFest and I hope you enjoyed SteemitBoard's "Meet the Steemians Contest" I organized for the event.

I'm looking for some support to be able to continue run the various project I maintains and support (like @cleanplanet) and future events I'm preparing for SteemitBoard.

I was just wondering if you could consider voting for my witness. This would be really helpful and greatly appreciated!

Take care and hope to see you next year.

Your post was mentioned in the Steemit Hit Parade in the following category:

Sorry for late posts.. Just reading through all your content because your most recent post and got excited..

I like the whole 'tokenizing' game development.. and I know of a few sites that are trying to offer tokens for answering dev questions and voting up the best solutions in a stackoverflow kind of way..

People have know and have become accustom to the idea of gamification, but it was always upvoted and 'brownies' as good will gestures.. Now you can attach real value to it..

great idea!
