Pinmapple and Haveyoubeenhere 🍍πŸ₯³πŸŒŽ

in #hive β€’ 10 days ago (edited)

Pinmapple is a collection of the best travel content on the Hive blockchain shown on a map.


How does it work?

As an author on Hive, you can get an auto generated code snippet containing the location of your post on Pinmapple. By adding this code snippet to your post (it will be hidden using markdown), our crawler can find the location of your post and pin it on the map within minutes. This works on any front-end for Hive!

How do we guarantee quality?

We have a team of curators (@livinguktaiwan, @choogirl, @itchyfeetdonica and @lizanomadsoul) who read through every post pinned to Pinmapple. After the curation process, they make a post with a summary of the best travel content of the day from the @pinmapple account. Only the posts selected by the team show up on the default interface of Pinmapple. Of course we do allow the option to view all posts as well!

What's in it for travel authors?

The posts selected by the curation team are guaranteed an upvote from @pinmapple. The top three posts of the day receive a 100% upvote, the remaining voting power is spread out over the honorable mentions. In the past we had voting support from @blocktrades, 25k+ HP in delegations and a strong voting trail. We will engage in conversation with whales on Hive over the next few days to see if we can once again count on their support to reward amazing travel content. Curation starts tomorrow.

At the time of writing we are still in the process of transfering our Hive from @steemitworldmap to @pinmapple. Until all Hive is transfered you can expect an upvote from both accounts.

What have we achieved so far?

Before being one of the first projects to fully migrate to Hive we were running Steemitworldmap on Steem. The project has been up and running for nearly 3 years now with close to 50,000 posts pinned to the map and over 8,000 rewarded. Over the years we have been one of the key factors in keeping travelers around and making sure that their content on average is way higher quality than other topics.

Anyone up for a little contest to start it all off? πŸ₯³

Haveyoubeenhere is the social media platform for travelers.


How does it work?

Using a photo at a location, you can check in and review places (we call these waypoints). From these waypoints you create posts for your followers and you can automatically summarize your entire trip on a map. All waypoints you create also show up on a map on your profile. In summary: Haveyoubeenhere can save your travel memories, share your travel memories and help you discover new places!

Do you have a quick video?

Ahh, yes we do! πŸ˜„

Who can use Haveyoubeenhere?

Here comes the best part. You do not need to have a Hive account to log in to Haveyoubeenhere. There are three options to log in: Hivesigner, Facebook Login or Apple Sign In. So until you are able to convince your friends and family to get a Hive account (which you should), they can still use Haveyoubeenhere with more traditional ways of logging in! πŸ₯³

Haveyoubeenhere is available for iOS and Android.

Posting from Haveyoubeenhere to Hive?

The content on Haveyoubeenhere is not automatically stored on the Hive blockchain. However if you are logged in with Hivesigner, you will have the option to share your post on Hive. Every post shared from Hive will be automatically pinned to Pinmapple and curated by our awesome Pinmapple-team! 🍍

If you are curious on what a post shared from Haveyoubeenhere looks like on Hive. You can check out this post, it was made on Haveyoubeenhere.

Why is the whole app not on Hive?

Haveyoubeenhere was made for all travelers. Whilst I dream of a world where the entire world has a Hive account, we are not quite there yet. In a few years here is what I hope a common conversation between travelers that just met in a random hostel looks like:

😎: "Hey you awesome travel person, let me follow you on Haveyoubeenhere! What is your username?"
πŸ˜‡: "Oh yay, thanks! It's angelface!"
😎: "Awesome! What did you do with your Hive? I just booked my room here with it!"
πŸ˜‡: "Hive? What's that?"
😎: "Ooooh, are you in for a treat!"

What does the future hold?

Haveyoubeenhere has the potential to be on every travelers smartphone. When those users start creating Hive accounts, it can easily boost real life adoption of Hive and blockchain in general in an unprecedented way. We are ready for it, and hope you are too!

Do you like us or you just want to... 😁

For those who missed the joke

Hive Proposal

We will set up a proposal for the HiveDAO in the near future when everything is a bit more stable.


A big part of what we do is curation, delegations are the lifeblood to support our curation effort. We would also like to ask all users who delegated to @steemitworldmap to retract those delegations (and preferably delegate to @pinmapple after of course)!

Voting trail

As far as I know none of the services that provide vote trailing are currently live for Hive. But the same here as for delegations. Please stop following @steemitworldmap and start following @pinmapple.

We are ready for Hive. Hope you are too!

Massive shout out to @livinguktaiwan, @choogirl, @itchyfeetdonica, @lizanomadsoul, @oroger, @sjennon, @fynemiene @roelandp and @blocktrades. Seriously ❀️ you guys and everything you have done to help Pinmapple and Haveyoubeenhere.

Also massive shout out to everyone working around the clock to get Hive going.

Yours truly,

Sort: Β 

As a long time user of Steemitworldmap I am also really glad that you moved over to Hive!

Yeah, we tried to get everything up as quickly as we could! I think we did a pretty decent job, haha!

You definitely did!

That's cool! I am very happy that you are switching to Hive! Of course, I am with you. My liitle delegation as well. :)

Aww, our first delegation! Thanks so much for your support! πŸ˜„

You're welcome! ;)
I really liked your new name! Great brand!

Hah, it's actually a funny story on how we got to the name! We were first looking at some more "generic" names like travelandpin, theworldtravelmap etc. Whilst looking I was trying to see if I could combine pin and map in a way. So pinmap -> pinmapper -> 😱 -> pinmapple!

We looked into a few others after like mapvocado and tomapto etc.,but those were all taken! I did manage to snatch up too though, in case I want to use it for a different project! 😁

awesome! :)
pin, map, app, pineapple (logo) β€” pinmapple is the best! 😌

Yeah, that's how we felt too! Everything is in there! 😁

I've been dithering to use this service, looks like fun. I'm going to a park tomorrow, and it's not traveling but a nice location that should be on the map. Does it count?

Of course! You can pin any location you want! πŸ˜„
Maybe take Mr. Pinmapple to the park and join the contest!

Will do. Let me download the app then.

Alright, let me know if the APK worked alright for you (and do change to the store version once it goes live, as it is more optimized)!

EDIT: I just got confirmation that the app is now live on Google Play Store and iOS AppStore!

So excited to see Mr Pinemapple debut and meet the Hive community ay last !!

@tipu curate

Very clever name ... Pinmapple 🍍! I shared this post on Twitter here:

Haha, we went over a lot of names in a very short time span! Glad you like it and thanks for creating some buzz on Twitter! 😁

No problem. Woot! You hit Hive Trending!

Pinmapple hype is real!

So very pleased to see the new-improved-evolved map dapp over here on HIVE. Just awesome.

So am I, the last few days have been a little bit crazy for me! πŸ˜„

So happy to have you guys here on Hive :) The travel part of the blockchain wouldnΒ΄t be complete without you :)

And we are happy to be here! Trying to do what we can for the travel community! 😁

Pinmapple sounds quirky! I love it!

Yeah, at first we weren't really sure if it was a good idea! But pretty soon we all superduper warmed up to it! 😁

πŸπŸŒŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ I love it!! I'll get my delegation switched up to the new account asap.

Awesome @derekrichardson! Thanks for the super long time support we've been getting from you! ❀️

Love the new branding and name. Sure will join a contest and take Mr. Pinmapple on a date somewhere here. **I think Mr. could get a bit more handsome :D

Haha, you might have to take him to a beauty salon! 😁

@pinmapple , How come the app does not support lower version of iOS, 12.X ?

Hey, we use some external libraries that only support iOS 13 and above, sorry for the inconvenience!

But is there a way that iOS users using lower thant 13.xx can use this app?

Unfortunately not at the moment, I might make a custom library at one point though! I also saw you made your first post on Haveyoubeenhere, but not cross posted it to Hive (assuming that is what you wanted to do of course)! 😁

To post to Hive from Haveyoubeenhere you either tap the Hive icon when creating the post, or you can tap the vertical dots menu and tap "To hive", hope it helps! I will work on making this a bit more clear, as I can imagine it not being obvious for other users too!

Hello there mr. @pinmapple, i wrote a post but I’m not sure of I did it right based on your criteria/rules πŸ˜…, glad to hear some feedback. Thank you 😊 😊

Just saw the post, looks great and a great entry for the contest! πŸ˜„

Love Mr. Pinmapple with the rabits, haha!

Thank you very much @martibis, I will definitely bring Mr. Pinmapple on my next adventure. 😊

Great to have this up and running. Thank you.

Did you see what I added just for you? 😁

Happy to modify my original pineapple post into an entry for your challenge :) Hopefully, I met all the requirements. Thanks, it was fun!
