The Hive-Engine team is proud to release the client side of DACTER. This is a little early as there's still a little tweaking we'd like to do, but we want to get this out and there and finally make account creation on the platform easy.
DACTER is a tool that allows anyone who has claimed Discount Account Creation Tokens to be able to trade them via layer 2 tools. The Hive layer 1 doesn't allow these tokens to be fungible making tools like this a necessity for those that want to create apps and gain users, but don't have the staked Hive Power necessary to onboard all the users they are bringing into the system. Charge whatever you want, and settle for accounts by paying BEE.
Running a Node
If you'd like to run a client module (someone that can effectively sell their DACTs) please check out this github link: https://github.com/hive-engine/dacter-client/blob/master/README.md
Still a work in progress
This is our first release, we've been working on the testnet and seems like we're progressed enough to give this a shot. So, before ripping into us about missing features or imperfect guides please remember it's an Alpha.
If you think tools like this from Hive-Engine are handy, please support my witness. Also, this tool in particular was created by @reazuliqbal. Please be sure to vote his witness as well.
Benefit for Hive-Engine token users
This system will allow you to price account creation in whatever currency you want that lives on hive-engine, but Dapp owners will pay on the backend in BEE. If you're a BEE token holder you should be excited because it's giving utility to BEE. If you're selling accounts you can sell them for however much the market will allow while also accepting whatever hive-engine token you want on the front end. If you're a token creator you should try to get the whale accounts and front ends to accept your token for account creation.
We think it's pretty flexible and should make onboarding users easier, which is one of the longest running and worst aspects of Hive. Hopefully this makes it better.
