D.Buzz Bi-Weekly Development Update Report Vol.30 :


Hello Developers and D.Buzz Users.

As you know D.Buzz is more than just a short form content Dapp, we are here to promote freedom of speech and connectivity between people. Today we have exciting bombshell of an announcement or rolling out.

Introducing HIVE.PM


Sunday_WeeklyRecap_.jpg

HIVE.PM is a new service will be rolling out next Tuesday. It is currently an Alpha version of a Blockchain based crypto chat using Memo Keys, but built on HIVE!

NOTE : This is just the Alpha version and will only cover Direct Messaging, but we will follow it up with HIVE Group Chats enhancement and better security features by adding another layer of encryption to the messages that are exchanged, but in due time.

Even better news, we plan on offering all of this (and more) to other Hive Dapps via API and, Open Sourcing it all THIS YEAR!

Expect more news about this shortly, and its rollout to be next Tuesday, the 16th.


Long-Form Version of D.Buzz

The Long-Form enhancement to D.Buzz will also be released next Tuesday the 16th (or at the least, there will be a sneak preview of what it will look like.).

We will format the Dapp in such a way that short-form & long-form content will both be possible, but the emphasis on D.Buzz will always remain about MicroBlogging (*it's sort of what we do).


We Hear You and are Working to Better it!

A few D.Buzz users & the good people over at @hivewatchers, have mentioned that the Buzz's from @risingstargame appeared to frequently in their news feed, with what some suggested was low quality content.

We had a conversation with @hivewatchers about this, and we are taking their advice!

To improve, we'll be adding a feature to the "Buzz embed button", where Webmasters can choose if they want to Buzz long-form or short-form content.

As per the advice of @hivewatchers, we will try to help @risingstargame replicate @actifits success of longer-form content, via our Buzz embed button.

If they want their users to Buzz long-form content, it will show up in the Blog section of D.Buzz, if not the D.Buzz main feed. We hope this will reduce some of this content that people may deem low-quality.


Marketing and Onboarding Push

This is still 100% on our agenda, and we are making progress towards our goal. The goal is and still is to onboard 1,000 - 3,000 users by March 31, 2021 and will try to make a major push in onboarding soon.

Some factors outside our control happened which had set us back a bit however, we work through this and are realigning!


Team Growth

We are also looking to add yet another developer to the team, and are in the process of interviewing someone we are interested in.

Currently, our All-Star team consists of three full-time and one part-time developer. We are working to onboard one more full-time Dev this month.

With this addition, we will continue to meet our development and progress goals across our suite of HIVE apps. That brings us to our last update.


There is More!

You know the thing about icebergs, that there's always more beneath the surface. Same is true here. There is more we haven't released yet and that information will be released in one of our future Tuesday #ProjectUpdates.

We encourage you to subscribe and like our hive blog Here, or join us on Discord here, to be kept up-to-date with all our projects.

Nice work #Hive

This is some great stuff! I have been waiting for an encrypted chat based on memo keys for a while. It always seemed like a logical service to provide. I'm glad it's you guys who implement it.

Nice updates

Your post is reblogged and upvoted by me. It is a good post. Thank you @dbuzz

Wow so much stuff going on congrats.
I like to think I'm one of the first regular users of Dbuzz, I have included it in my daily routine, and as a heavy twitter user I'm pretty comfortable with it. All the early design problems are just something temporary, so the future cant be brighter.
As a relatively new user in Hive ecosystem, despite I logged in Steem 4 years ago, Its great to have a place to make some mumblings without the "pressure" of making "proper quality posts" on Hive or LEO platforms, as I tend to be interested on lots of topics and not necessarily feel the urgency of writing a brick for half an hour.
Just remember us oldies when this explodes to higher usage! Give us a golden border in the icon, or create some DBUZZMiners hahaha! Cheers

D.buzz just keeps on getting better and better. They're responsive to both users and community leaders too. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with next.

ooooh, that's a really neat idea! Private PM's with memos... clever. :D
