2017-10-26 is my account's creation date on the STEEM network. As a new author with no friends in the chain, I was having difficulties in the social side of STEEM.
I can clearly say that Utopian is the main reason why I contributed to the STEEM scene that much so far. I could probably left the network if Utopian wasn't there in my early months here.
I am involved with the project as both contributor and developer since the early days. As being a software developer maintaining free software (Think of the free word here as in free speech not as in free beer.) projects for years, I can clearly say that the Utopian has successfully implemented a Utopia in the ecosystem.
After the initial proof of concept implementation, Utopian has given substantial support to the countless authors and developers in the network. The project also attracted lots of new developers and projects outside of the STEEM.
The new Utopian website -Colony- will be a platform for source collaboration and innovation. The second quarter of 2019 is exciting since there is a good probability that we will finally see the Colony as an alpha release.
Utopian created a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo to fulfill the roadmap. Click to the above link to see the details:
The funds raised on that campaign will be used for:
With your help we can complete the development of the early version of Utopian Colony by May 2019 (with the goal of making it available to the general public no later than July 2019). We will use the funds to cover the remaining development expenses and to expedite the public release.
I have just chipped in a small amount to the campaign and I know lots of my followers are active entities at Utopian one way or another. It's time to support Utopian. Visit indiegogo campaign page, read the details, and support it if you think the project deserves your support.
