QUICK NEWS: We have another update being tested on beta.peakd.com that may come out tomorrow or the next day. Biggest change is likely some significant changes to PeakLock... you can check them out now.
Then we will likely release new Promoted Posts system, some layout changes, wallet upgrades and new user and on-boarding tools.
WE HAVE LOTS OF WAYS TO BE INVOLVED
...We even have several ways to get paid.
There are many opportunities to work with and for PeakD.com from Beta testers to Customer Support team to implementing cool tools and of course more developers to help @asgarth develop all our features faster.
There's lots of opportunities for lots of people. While on a few may be paid there is still lots of ways to get involved and to be recognized for it.
There are 5 sections... pick the section that applies to you.
Basically it's like two groups
- Brainstorming new ideas
- Beta testing new features
Those who want to be part of a voluntary group that discusses ideas and gives quick feedback on features we're working on or planning on. There have been a few of these impromptu groups in the past on discord. We are just making it more official.
There will be a discord label and a badges and most likely private discord discussions.
Likely just need to stay active to remain in the group.
MODERATING - Basically means keep the community pages and discord free of spam.
SUPPORT - Is varied it could be people who can help new users... all the way to users who can give higher end tech support and save time for developers.
Here's what the form will be asking
It does take some level of trust to do all these things all the way from moderate to writing content to of course knowing hive and PeakD well enough to give competent high end tech support.
For those doing higher end support or writing articles we are thinking about some sort of monthly gift of our appreciation... Aka Crypto in addition to the roles and the Peak Badge.
We have and will be talking to some lawyers, politicians, entrepreneurs and even a handful of incredibly successful content creators about jumping on a advisory council with us. These are likely people that are so successful at their career they're not gonna be willing to jump into a startup but they're perhaps great friends and or they love what we're and want to be a part in a small way.
- Political consultants
- Design experts
- Blockchain, crypto, social experts
- Business, design experts
- And of course the top representatives for who we are aiming for later this year. Full time content creators.
There are incentives for this as well which vary based on what the individual brings to the table in expertise and time. Including small bits of equity from the dynamic equity system Peak Projects implements.
We work with lots of 3rd parties already.
- Keychain and HiveSigner for login methods
- We pay Esteem for search API
- We use content and blacklist API from 3rd parties
- We have done a bit of Brave Browser integration and their BAT rewards system
- We have and are about to put a bunch of projects in a newly designed wallet page.
- Our team also developed a pretty robust site that interacts with Splinterlands.
- We're working with teams like open-seed to look at implementing some of their features.
- We've worked with teams like hive-engine in the past to make nice interface in the wallet.
There's perhaps lots of opportunities to integrate tools into the site or perhaps promote tools that help users.
- We push people to the hive.blog signup page.
- We push people to the hive internal market.
So what's your idea... the form is a good place for that.
Just keep in mind that our to do and idea list is very long already so we may already have plans to have everything already in there. But maybe the trick is having you help get it in there.
Usually win-win is what we want to see most. However if it saves us lots of time and money or it brings in revenue then of course financial incentive can be discussed.
First things first... we need developers.
We could handle paid-contracted help for things like:
- working on mobile application
- We even would like to develop a few stand alone open-source projects.
- We could bring on a part time person to help be a second helper to @asgarth with all the servers we run maybe expand our usage of our hivemind server and analytics servers.
- We can bring in someone to help user interface stuff.
Feature design, front end design or even blockchain type stuff.
Many options may presently make more sense for temporary contracted help
... but who knows there could be long term paid work available.
Yes there will be room for others in the future... later this year we will likely be bringing in a bunch of part time content writers for a marketing project. I guess you could apply early.
We would like to pay developers. However we may be willing to deal with partial equity options. We use a system called "dynamic equity". We could consider a mix of both but where possible we lean payment... or even contract.
FYI: The equity can and will continue to pay out as well. However it takes time to rack up equity in dynamic systems specially with 2 people who have poured thousands of hours into the project already. But again where possible or desired good ol' crypto payments may be right up your alley. Or some sort of way to develop things that bring in revenue.
NOTE: We will for sure not rush this... we will wait for a good match for the technology and for the team culture.
FILL OUT THE FORM
Pick which section(s) you're interested in and let us know.
Some projects will start right away and some will start later.
For potential team members expect an ongoing or more thorough process.
Got a feature you want to get on PeakD.com let's start chatting soon.
We reserve to upgrade or change this process at any time... just like we upgrade and change our website. #alwaysprogressing Obviously we hope to hire more people in the future and what better way to know to have a bigger paid role in the project than those who are helping out now.
