Hello Steemians, today we are excited to start running a witness node and share our vision of becoming a witness. We will focus on building the company-wide value stream and improving scalability of dApp experiences on Steem blockchain.
Our Journey so far
Steemhunt was introduced on March 5th, 2018 with the aim of becoming a Steem-fueled economy for hunting products. We started with a small vision, but after observing the power of Steemit’s community, we decided to push Steemhunt further by creating a blockchain-powered community platform that brings tech early-adopters and innovative makers/companies together.
The HUNT Platform initiative was announced on May 22nd, 2018, and now Steemhunt has grown to become a strong community where Geek Capita is recognised as a genuine power by innovative product makers. Check out how powerful and invaluable they have become:
- So far 25,475 cool/innovative products have been dug out and $108,337.12 hunter rewards have been generated in the space of 233 days on top of Steem Blockchain.
- Over 250 Steemians back this project with over 1.6 million Steem Power delegation.
- Steemhunt traction has sharply increased by 800% in just two months with over 72K monthly active users at this moment.
Thanks a million to all the hunters, sponsors, and Steemians for your great support on this project. It’s been an amazing journey and we feel lucky to be onboard the Steem blockchain. Without Steem-community, this Geek Capita power would not exist.
Steemhunt Witness Mission - The Next Level of Company-wide Value Stream and Scalable User Experience
We strongly believe that Steem blockchain is the first-ever and most powerful blockchain where REAL USER activities exist. However, we think there are two missing parts that will enable us to move on the next level.
1. Company-wide value stream
Even though Steem is one of the top 3 most active blockchains based on Blocktivity, most of the STEEM values are generated based on individual user activities, rather than company-wide activities. It’s important for company activities to increase the value of STEEM token economy because their actions always bring a large amount of scalable transactions and network effects. In other words, the base unit size by companies will highly surpass that of individual users.
2. Scalable dApp Experience
We think the HF20 successfully created the foundation of scalable blockchain by introducing RC (Resource Credit) system. Now it is time to focus more on creating/maintaining the Steem blockchain to become more scalable and user-friendly based on the standpoint of Steem dApps. We believe that the success of Steem and SMT will be heavily affected by how many dApps can successfully create a large number of active users from outside of Steemit. It is highly important for dApp-based witnesses to be located in the top 20, so that they can improve the new user scalability and new user on-boards on Steem dApps.
What Steemhunt will do as a Witness?
Steemhunt witness will concentrate on two main activities, as well as basic responsibilities:
We will encourage companies/makers to be involved with the STEEM token economy at a GLOBAL LEVEL. Steemhunt is a bridging platform for makers to reach out to early adopters for the successful launch of their product. With our global presence roadmap, Steemhunt will offer a clear value stream between the users and their services/platforms by constantly inviting makers to utilise the SMT-based token economy to escalate their business activities.
We will drive the Steem blockchain to be more scalable and user-friendly for many Steem-based applications. Steemhunt has focused on the innovation of user experiences above the blockchain layer, and we believe that this is highly important for generic users (not just for crypto enthusiasts). We are also working on a scalable new user sign-up/on-boarding interface directly via Steem dApps. Steemhunt attracts more than 5K unique users from outside of Steemit everyday. Our aim is to develop 1) a new user sign-up system that directly converts generic outside users to Steem app users, 2) a user-friendly on-boarding interface that makes it easy to understand the Steem community and token economy, and 3) pipelines that transfer them from one Steem dApp to another.
Steemhunt Witness Server
Steemhunt will constantly improve the specs of our server, and maintain the stability by using our own algorithms and operations that cover almost every time zone.
- CPU: 4 cores
- RAM: 90GB
- SSD: 700GB
