It is with excitement that I introduce my newest project to the Steem Ecosystem.

Sprtshub.io is an open-source decentralized sports sharing platform that rewards contributors for the contribution to the world of Sports. We are using this platform that is riding on the Steem Blockchain to make the earnings possible without middlemen, fair and square.

The project is currently in Alpha, open-source and available for web on Github:
Source Code: https://github.com/sprtshub/sprtshub.io
Bug reports: https://github.com/sprtshub/sprtshub.io/issues

Features

  • Easy to use UI
  • Users can signup with their Steemit Private Posting Keys
  • Subsequent logins can be done with email and personal passwords
  • Predictions and Betting
  • Mining through interactions and engagements
  • Live Streaming (in progress)
  • Sprtshub Reputation scoring
  • In platform wallet
  • Users can earn Sportscoin for use on the platform
  • Coversion of Sportscoin to SBD & STEEM

Important

Sprtshub.io is currently in Alpha. While careful development and testing has been done and is still being done - bugs should be expected. @ejemai or @stach cannot be held liable for unknown issues, loss of funds (SBD & STEEM) or mistakes made by the user. Make sure to use your Private posting keys only when signing on the platform.


I Feel Blessed!


With that out of the way, we can proceed with enjoying this open-source decentralized sports sharing platform that is designed to bring the rewards to sports lover via the Steem Blockchain


Development

SprtsHub.io was built entirely on the Steem Blockchain using the Steem-js library as our interface. We chose the js library because if it's flexibility and ability to run across platforms, since Vanilla js is already widely used on all platforms such as web, desktop and mobile.
The platform is hosted on an 8GB RAM server with 160GB storage running on Digitalocean Servers, one of the world's most reliable and scalable servers with over 14 datacenters spread across the world. (Constant upgrade planned)
We implemented load balancers which distributes the load on a single node thus ensuring that we have as many nodes being deployed as at when its needed, this is very important for scalability.

The Steem-js library connects via web sockets to the Steem Blockchain. SprtsHub's frontend is 80% built on Vanilla Javascript, while also implementing important frontend frameworks such as jquery and lazy loaders. All files get loaded asynchronously using only .js which guarantees fast load times of all functions and plugins.
As for the backend, we implemented laravel framework due to it's massive scalability, speed and security.
For security and caching we used Cloudflare so as to prevent against DDos attacks and malicious entry to the site. Cloudflare is the world's leader in cyber security and encryption.
The website uses advanced TLS encryption for ensuring that all data sent to and fro from our servers are kept encrypted end-to-end.


User Access

The steps to signup is easy and can be done in just 10 seconds.


You can login with your email and password, so need worrying about constantly inputting your Private Posting Keys. It is just a one time exercise.


Easy to use writing style, with message preview and markdown format

Writing a post on Sprtshub is fun as you can get the best experience complete with preview page and markdown format already in place.


Contributions approvals

All articles published through the Sprtshub.io platform will be approved by a moderator to ensure it is a sports contribution and free from Plagiarism and Spam. We are poised to encourage original contents and will use this platform to promote a plagiarism and spam free content economy.


Token reward with in-platform Wallet System

On the Sprtshub platform, users can mine SPC for contributing articles, commenting, predicting, staking and engaging on daily basis. You can transfer SPC to another user and also convert to SBD & Steem. Additional information on token capacity, ownership and distribution to be released soon on @sprtshub.


Sprtshub Reputation score

On Sprtshub.io, every user has a unique reputation that measures participation and engagement. The default setting is 2 and it has nothing to do with your Steemit reputation; they are both independent of each other.


SMT Compliant

We have designed Sprtshub.io to be SMT compliant and we will be porting to this much anticipated offering from Steemit inc. Tokenizing sports will be fun and we are excited to be leading the movement to bringing fun and reward to the Sporting community on the Steem Blockchain.


More features coming soon

This is the Alpha stage and we are working round the clock to make sure we deliver a truly decentralized sports sharing platform and we will be listening to you to make sure we give you what you want. The website is fully responsive on mobile and web.

Nice One Sir.

Once again, another amazing project ejemai, congratulations.

Hi @ejemai,
Great initiative but I do have some questions.

  • if I do post via sprtshub, will my posts than still be upvote by for instance steembasicincome?
  • are these posts also visible when a users browse through their feed on steemit or busy.org?
  • will there be a beneficiary reward for sprtshub?
  • upvoting post will also have an effect of the steem voting power, isn’t it?

Thanks,
Peter

Hi @fullcoverbetting to answer your questions:

  • Yes, it can be upvoted by anyone because once it is approved, it will appear on the Steem Blockchain.
  • Yes, the posts are visible on busy, Steemit and all such platform connect to the Steem Blockchain.
  • There is beneficiary reward for using Sprtshub.io. Users get rewarded with Sprtscoins for article posted and also for interactions.
  • Yes, this is a project developed on the Steem Blockchain and whatever upvotes you get reads on your Steemit account as well.
    Hope you enjoy your time with us.
    Stay awesome!

Thanks @ejemai for the responses. When in doubt it is better to ask than assume and afterwards being wrong!

This is a great innovation, i hope you are considering an homepage for the website... And a whitepaper because of rhe smt inclusion.... Since its for sports, a livestream for certain matches will be ok, you don't need to pay, just add the vedio players of some sportstream to it....
Plus are you thinking of sports betting (the ‘odds’ systems will be ok). And if it is sports that means you are planning to cover more than just football, a categorization for eachbsports will be cool (i think the tagging system will work best) subsequently. Sure the web app will be cool on Android (why am i saying it, since you are thinking about it already)... one step at a time.... I support it (i have so much been waiting for something to come from nigeria on smt and here it is)
Congratulations bro

·

Thanks man. You are on point with your comment,. There is so much more coming and we will keep working to make sure we deliver a world class sports platform.
The whole package is guaranteed. Predictions, betting live streamings, commentary and contest.
Stay tuned and awesome!

I'm glad this has been initiated into the steem blockchain

I'm following this news from now.

INTRODUCING: Sprtshub.io - A Decentralized Sports Sharing Platform built on the Steem Blockchain has been resteemed by @resteemmuse

Where will you store our posting keys??

Why don't you implement steemconnect?

Thanks for the contribution.

It looks like a really cool project, but here are some things to keep in mind when contributing via Utopian.io if you want to receive a higher score:

  • Submissions should include a comprehensible commit history. At the time of submitting your contribution the repository didn't contain any code. Of course it does now, but the commit messages are all "Add files via upload", which means they still aren't comprehensible.
  • The Github repository linked to the submission post must contain a readme file with usage and install instructions and an appropriate open source license, or be directly connected to such a repository.

I was also wondering if there is a reason why you don't use SteemConnect?
