Explanation of proposal costs

90% of these funds will be used to develop new features and 10% covers server costs. Plus Witness earnings from @good-karma which is already dedicated to this mission, additional funds will help us scale our team of developers, more actively grow our development efforts to help newcomers. We also have regular newsletters and press-release updates to help with Hive and Ecency branding.
We would like to allocated some dev resources towards which has been idle in past few months. Allocate some resources towards New project could also be extended to be informative and easy to navigate like etherscan, other popular block explorers, all opensource.


  • Fastest, secure, feature-full, unique and opensource website frontend, mobile application and desktop interface. Dedicated infrastructure to support and serve ever growing visits.
  • Image hosting instance that can serve you even oldest images from years ago. Try it our on and you will know what we mean, open any post older than 3-4 years and see if images load for you. We noticed some images are visible in our instance that are missing from instance.
  • Dedicated Blockchain RPC node to handle traffic on Ecency apps and services.
  • Better, improved authentication system OAuth2, via continuous development of Hivesigner.
  • Better search functionalities and new APIs via Hivesearcher.
  • Opensource block explorer that is unique in design, yet powerful for developers to easily join via Hivexplorer.
  • Better integration of 3rd party services, Engine, SPK networks.

And of course unique user experience and simple, quick signup that helps onboarding new people into blockchain social, blockchain tokens, trading, blockchain discovery and blockchain communities world.


Costs (updated)

Daily: 396 HBD ~120x2 hours per month (6 devs), 7200 HBD ~80 hours per month (1 dev), 2000 HBD
NEW* ~40 hours per month (1 dev), 800 HBD
Recurring costs (Servers): ~$1800, ~1800 HBD + rest from our witness earnings

Edit history here:

We have 9 developers and getting all of them full time is not reasonable ask, so we are load balancing it, all interconnected because some of us bring multiple skillset to the team, some of us full time, others part time.

State of DHF

  • As of right now there is around ~19,376,000 HBD available for proposals
  • Daily possible funding on Decentralized Hive Fund is ~193,760 HBD
  • We are asking Daily 396 HBD

We understand that during the duration of our proposal we may get partial funding sometimes, no funding sometimes. But it won't stop us from developing and delivering. We hope you see value Ecency team brings to Hive and support us in common vision and goal!

Thank you!

Let me just say that this new feature is really cool... and time saving. I would like to see 25% and 75% added to the options, if that's possible. Other than that it's perfect. 😎

Keep up with the good work. 🤗

Those dividers will be less when screen size is smaller, like on mobile, there you should see 25. Showing too many numbers also confuses people, so we tried to find balance.

Ah, I see! Nice idea! 🤗

You guys are doing a great work. It really make sense to use this app in everything

You are doing great and you deserve the support. I did my part.

It was a no-brainer. Thanks for the amazing work you do, especially in onboarding new people.

Ecency is really doing a great job, nobody can contest that...

Happy to support your proposal. You have got my vote. cheers!!

thank you for everything you have created ✌🏼🙏🏼

Kudos to the team and contributors for the work they continue to do within the Hive ecosystem. Ecency is really one of the best (if not the best) Hive frontend in terms of its rich features and easy navigation. I voted for the proposal.

Voted for the proposal! Keep going! 👏

I always use ecency to interact and I have noticed how they are getting better and better making the user experience more enjoyable. It is a project with a lot of future and I am sure that all the goals will be achieved.

Can you guys implement keychain for the app? works with Keychain, no?

The web yes, but the app?
Or you mean use the browser option on the keychain app?

Mobile app doesn't work with keychain, because keychain doesn't have that functionality afaik.
Beside, Ecency mobile app is same as keychain mobile app but with more social functionality, it stores your private keys and offers different set of UX. Managing Engine tokens coming out in December release, if anything else you would like to see on our mobile app, do let us know and we will consider adding. 😉

I'm sure everyone in the community is 💯% behind you and your team. I know I am.

I have supported the proposal. Great job! Thank you for all you do @ecency !

Good to see the work you are doing @ecency , up- voted!😀

I congratulate all the improvements and the new projects, I will now vote in favor of the proposal :)

@ecency! You Are Alive so I just staked 0.1 $ALIVE to your account on behalf of @pedrobrito2004. (2/10)

The tip has been paid for by the We Are Alive Tribe through the earnings on, feel free to swing by our daily chat any time you want.

Without a doubt ecency is nice, it brings value to hive but I wonder it keeps returning points in boosting a post? People are working hard to earn points for this matter. Though some people considered it at least have a slight quality. Why is it hard to to appreciate the team in boosting a post?

I am very happy to came a Cross Ecency app, they are the best, and also Ecency, working tirelessly, contributed a lot to added more value to Hive web 3.0 communities. Keep it up and more Grace to your elbow.

Done! All strength to all of your efforts @ecency and the Team!

I have noticed maybe 11 attempts to convert Ecency Points for Boost have been rejected. Will this be working again soon, or are the Points no longer working for Boosting?

Boosting working as far as we know. Try smaller amount and new post, if you asking biggest boost and post is older or short content, then our curators might be skipping it. Join our discord to talk with them or tag few of them and see if they can help you out, @melinda010100

Thank you for the reply. These Boosts have been attempted the same day as the posts are made, are for all varieties of original content, and are at minimum amounts, but I will keep trying. I have enjoyed the platform for some time, but I have never seen this amount of regular boost refunds and wanted to share the feedback in case others are also seeing this. Power to the progress and growth. 👍

You are not doing anything wrong. Because of the low price of Hive curators have found it necessary to limit boosts to conserve Ecency voting power. If the price stays low adjustments will be made. Try boosting with less points and just new posts for now.

You are offering value that is so much bigger than the asking price. I don't even know any other app that is as good and available on both desktop and mobile. You are one of the best assets HIVE has when it comes to being a blockchain social media.

Thank you for your valuable support! 🙏

Of course, I am supporting it! Thanks to Ecency team for doing all that work!

Great job team

You guys are doing great
I have voted for the proposal 👍

Ce serait génial si HIVE a la possibilité de pouvoir bloquer les votes et les commentaires des personnes qu'on bloque, qu'ils aient un refus ou un rejet. Car, je subis tous les jours de l'abus de vote négatif par une personne qui vient avec ses multi comptes faire des votes négatifs. Ce qui fait exemple 3 ou 4 comptes pour une personne. HIVE ainsi changerait grandement et deviendrait meilleur.

Tous les jours la personne vient scruter tout ce que je fait sur mon propre blog ou écrire un commentaire ailleurs, pour simplement faire du mal, car il est malheureux dans sa vie.

It would be great if HIVE has the ability to be able to block the votes and comments of people we block, whether they have a denial or a rejection. Because, I suffer negative vote abuse every day by a person who comes with his multi accounts to make negative votes. Which makes for example 3 or 4 accounts for one person. HIVE thus would greatly change and become better.

Every day the person comes to scrutinize everything I do on my own blog or write a comment elsewhere, simply to hurt, because he is unhappy in his life.

Non et non.

Je ne downvote que un seul sujet sur lequel vous vous obstinez, un sujet où vous êtes insultant et injurieux, quand allez-vous le comprendre !!!!!!!
Voyez vous UN SEUL DE MES DOWNVOTES ailleurs que sur vos flots d'insultes ???

Vous le faites exprès de ne pas comprendre, j'en suis certain, enfin, je l'espère pour vous du moins.

Puis arrêtez de pleurer, les règles sur hive sont clairement définies, si vous ne les connaissez pas, il suffit d'aller les apprendre, et non ce n'est pas votre blog c'est un blog communautaire où les autres membres de la communauté votent, donc non c'est EVIDENT qu'on ne peut pas bloquer les votes !!! C'est le principe de base !

Vous voulez un blog à vous, où vous pouvez dire ce que vous voulez ? Ben prenez un site et wordpress. vous voulez continuer sur hive, conformez-vous aux règles de bienséance et de savoir vivre.

Here is the proof he came again to scrutinize what I do and come to annoy.
He is not capable of letting me do what I want in my own blog, to comment on my own articles. He is sick an HIVE abuser. And, it does on all these accounts, see image.

I just started a subject that he comes to unpack his shit, not being able to leave me alone.
He doesn't dare to attack an account with a lot of HP, he comes to harass small HP accounts like me. And, it makes people stop using HIVE because of this kind of unsanctioned abuse.

I'm satisfied with this app although there is latency in app but thanks for this lovely app.

Congratulations @ecency team. Wishing you success. Ready, with my support, to your proposal.

Is there some way to turn off the graphs on the engine-tokens page of the wallet? They often take ages to load, causing my browser to pop up a "unresponsive page" message.

On computer you have that problem? We will check how to improve it. Could you mention browser version and your computer details, please?
@adesojisouljay we might have to check browser support or disable animation perhaps or check maybe processing data logic is off somewhere

Latest version Mac mini with 8Gb RAM, Brave browser

If there could be a feature to convert ecency points in Hive or vice- Versa directly. I know ecency points can be used to boost posts and from it Hive comes as reward.

Ecency is my only way to use hive. Best ever. Hope this project keep growing more and more. Great work, congrats for the quality!

Hivesigner being fixed? Yes!!!!!

It's about time!

Definitely worth supporting and you guys get my 100% vote!

I am sure that you guys will get this fixed here pretty quick.

I love ecency community and i regularly use ecency. This is really great

I will share my second Post soon. I totally trust this system(Ecency). That's why I'm going to Power Up in my second post.

Great work team Ecency!

Regularly using ecency, love this!

I think that Ecency is one of the Dapps that contribute the most value to HIVE, especially for its mobile app.

Listo. Ya di mi voto 👏👏👏👏👏

It has been done!
Have an Amazing Week!

Ecency front-end is really the fastest I can testify to that. You are really doing a great job. Keep it up

Thank you! 🙏

Thank you so much for your support of my @v4vapp proposals in the past, my previous one expired this week.

I'd be really happy if you would continue supporting my work by voting on this proposal for the next 6 months:

Additionally you can also help this work with a vote for Brianoflondon's Witness using KeyChain or HiveSigner

If you have used I'd really like to hear your feedback, and if you haven't I'd be happy to hear why or whether there are other things you want it to do.

listo apoyado

Full support 👍

Happy to support.

Done, keep doing great stuff ecency.

My previous @v4vapp proposal has expired. I have a new one which is running but unfunded right now. I'm still running @v4vapp and all my other services but I may have to increase the 0.8% fee to 2.0% if I continue to be unfunded.

Please consider asking your friends to vote for prop #244 or consider unvoting the HBD stabilizer explained below.

For understandable reasons in the current crypto climate it is harder to get funded by the DHF, I accept this so I'm asking a wider audience for help again. I will also redraft this proposal with more details (coming soon). I'm also looking for other funding sources.

Additionally you can also help with a vote for Brianoflondon's Witness using KeyChain or HiveSigner

If you have used I'd really like to hear your feedback, and if you haven't I'd be happy to hear why or whether there are other things you want it to do.

  1. The bar to be funded is set by the HBD Stabilizer, the more votes that has, the more votes @v4vapp needs to be funded. If you want to reconsider supporting that proposal and unvote it, that would also help me (and others so you have to weigh this choice.)
