in #typeearn2 years ago (edited)

I've been an active Steemian for over two years, and I've been a part of a couple of projects and Utopian was one of them. I’ve had the thought of adding value to the Steem BC in a fun and engaging way. Less down three months ago, I with a few of my folks started working on a project that people can use to track their typing speeds and skills with more added value, which could drive more professionals here (Steem BC). The result of the work is

What is typpeearn?

Typeearn is a project for people to learn and track their typing speeds as well as earn. That is not all. There is another layer that allows people to create tasks of different types. The feature is not live because we will need to get professionals that will take up tasks depending on their fields of experts.

We leverage on the fantastic Steem side-chain project, Steem-engine to create a tradable token called Typecoin (TPC) to reward people as they involve in the typing challenge, and working on the platform.

Purpose of Typeearn, and why Steem bc?

As written, I have been here for years and witnessed the rise and fall of the Steem tokens. Many people are leaving the Steem BC because of the continuous bearish movement of the token. I don’t want to leave or fold my arms. Rather, I wish to add more value to the BC with fun, simple to use and quality service providing platform.

  • Typeearn is created for users to have fun.
  • To track their typing speed
  • To increase typing speed
  • To serve as a medium for people to access quality services from freelancers.
  • To get monetary value through the Typeearn coin
  • And more

TypeEarn Components


This is the section to mine while improving your typing skills. There are chances of mining five times in 24 hours. The number of words typed, and your typing speed will determine the amount of Typecoin you will earn. The additional and smart way to maximize your earnings is to hold a tangible amount of Typecoin in Steem-engine wallet. The amount of Typecoin in your Steem-engine wallet is converted to the Typepower by default which will be added to the volume of TPC you will be earning.

The mining and earning metrics

Word typed x WPM (Word typed per minute)+ Typepower/ 1000(Standard value)

Note: There must be a minimum of 20TPC in user Steem-engine wallet before he/she can earn. This is to reduce potential abuse. Also, the mining metrics are subjected to changes depending on how effective they are on the value of the token and the growth of the project. Plus, we are not storing any token, and Steemconnect is used to sign into the app.

Write about your activities and post on steem

There is a posting functionality where you can write about your typing activities and post on Steem. After every round of typing, there is a pop up that asks if you wish to share on Steem. This feature will direct the user to the posting editor, and the user can write and post directly through the site. There is no feature to access blogs or feeds on for now. But, we will be improving the project, and implement some Steemit like features in a couple of weeks.


The earn is limited; practice isn’t. We create an unlimited section for users to keep typing. No added thing here. The section is as well accessible without signing in. This is solely meant to engage our users in continuous practice.


This is another important part of the project which is not fully ready. We will improve this part for users to create different writing tasks, such as Business Plans, Project documentation, Content writing, Translations, and so on. Typeearn will have a list of whitelisted, and certified professionals that will work on created tasks to ensure quality services are being rendered. Typecoin (TPC) and Steem will be the means of payments for all services on the platform.


We believe most people that will come in may not know how to start here effectively. So, we created this page as a means of guides for users to start. Also, the Typeearn team will be available to help all the Steem newbies.

Profile components

Current Earn

This component shows the amount of the TPC that has been earned through the typing tests, and it can be claimed to user Steem-engine wallet by a click on the Withdraw to S-E button that is provided below the component.

TPC in Steem-engine

This shows the amount of TPC in the user Steem-engine wallet.


Typepower is the engine that determines the amount of TPC users can mine per round. 1Typecoin (TPC) =0.3Typepower (TPP). TPP is not a token on its own, and it is powered by Typecoin. If you wish to have huge Typepower, you simply need to hold many Typecoin.


Token distribution

The total supply of Typecoin (TPC) is 100,000,000 (One hundred million), and 500,000 is currently in supply.


We will airdrop 30,000 TPC to people that can write reviews about the project on Steem. The airdrop will run for two weeks.

For Airdrop eligibility:

  • Steemian must have the minimum of 100 followers.

  • Reputation score must be from 50 and above.

  • User must not be in Steem cleaner, Buildawhale or any steem abuse fighters blacklist.


  • A minimum of 500 words.

  • User can use any steem interface to publish their promotion post.

  • Ensure to use typeearn as the first tag.

  • A user can publish twice within the stipulated time.

  • Share the post on Facebook and twitter. If possible, share on Medium.

  • Drop the link to the post on #typeearn promotion on our discord server.


The Typeearn team will review each entry, and all will be rewarded accordingly. The minimum reward is 100TPC, and the max reward is 400TPC. The post quality will determine the reward.

Current price

Typecoin (TPC) current price is $0.06.

Six(6) months Road map

We will be improving the project actively, and we can say the fun is yet to come. The below-listed features will be achieved within six months.

  • Compete and play with friends and online users.

  • Share your activities on Facebook and Twitter.

  • Completing the Task components.

  • Daily Leaderboard and all time leaderboard.

  • User extensive profile and wallet improvement

If you type adeptly with 10 fingers, you're typing faster than your mind is working. says, James A Michener.

You can be a fast ''typer'' if you learn with While improving your typing skills, you are getting rewarded with TPC. Having you around on will be fantastic, and we are always prepared to improve the project on every aspect to serve you better.

We are already reaching out to different professionals so that our aims could be achieved as soon as possible. We will enable delegations when the task component is fully ready to provide an additional rewarding system for users and the freelancers.

Let's start hearing the clacking sound of your keyboards. See you around!


This seems interesting, we'll see if this will catch the interest of people :)

Yea, it already catching a few. Thanks!

This seems interesting! Will follow and keep an eye on it, I like the idea as someone who spent some time on

Would you consider burning some of the rewards from the profitable bid bot votes?

Threw this post a resteem.

Glad you like the idea. I can sure burn some of the reward from the bid bot votes. Thanks!

This is with my keyboard in mind, that constantly double-e types letters (as you can see right there), forcing me to go back and re-type half a dozen times. Real-world speed is more like 115wpm

Whehre you at? (grrr)

I'll take you up on your challenge once I have my mechanical keyboard back in about a week. :D

Damn, am I gonna have to b uy a working keyboard just to stay on top...

It could be a good investment, right?

I guess in this context yeah!

!BEER & !giphy crazy+keyboard

Sorry, out of BEER, please retry later...

First attempt on my craptop

This allows me to make mistakes, so:

get a life

I was born at 131wpm

Damn, Mobbs! I still do about 52 wpm

Keep up old man!

I was thinking about challenging @acidyo but maybe I should try against you at some point.

Not sure how fast I am, haven't tried the game, but I don't want to challenge any slow ones ;)

Se puede en spanish?

Exactly, @tykee: a simple improvement could be the choice of the language of the text to be typed ... can you implement it?

I used Google to get the question now, and I think it isn't a bad suggestion. I will see what we can do on that. Thanks!

I would also like a greater contrast in the text: yellow on white I find it very difficult to read it!...

I like this. I'll have to try this out.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the concept is, basically, to get people to come to type better, encourage with rewards, and get them to stay with freelance work once they are experts. Not a bad user lifecycle!

So, how much can you earn per day? I need concrete numbers to see if it’s worth my time.

Posted using Partiko iOS

Hi, and thank you! Well, I can't give figures because what your earn is determined by your typing speed and the amount of TPC you are holding in your wallet.

This is the metrics again : Word typed x WPM (Word typed per minute)+ Typepower/ 1000(Standard value)

The bold area are the two key important part, but even if you don't type fast, your investment will boost your earnings.

If you haven't gotten any yet, check out my post for a screenshot on my lowest amount which was about 40WPM on the 20 you hold on Steem Engine.
My highest was 60WPM and with over 100 TPC held, I got 2.02 for the one shot.
So I found getting 50WPM or so will get roughly 1 and a half TPC.

Also 5 times a day and you could be earning 7+ TPC a day, depending on your speed and how much more you buy above the 20 TPC you need.

... and Steemconnect is used to sign into the app.

Please implement Steem Keychain support!

Ok, thanks! I will consider the suggestion. Steem Keychain login will be available soon.

This is really cool, It's awesome that you're rewarding people for mastering a skill.

@tykee nice one.. is the app available on play store and how frequent can one cash out

The app is a web application. This is the link You can cash out anytime.

This is a pretty awesome idea From this Buddy and his folks,

Very interesting. I would like to improve my writing speed too, and possibly earn from here. Mine is very slow at the moment, maybe 40 wpm. Haa

Seem to be fun and engaging projects

Brother. Check me out on discord. @naturalmedicine. Thanks

Posted using Partiko Android

Very interesting and the sound is pretty good.

I bought 20 TPC but getting reached daily limit when I tried to earn.

Sorry about that. Join our discord and report the issue on #report-bug-here

I got that after completing 2/5 rounds. But with some derpiness with my fingers when doing commas, fullstops etc you can earn a nice amount off 20 TPC. I got better in the second round.

You did pretty well.

Please join the discord server for clarification.

I am keen for this, would be excellent for people to get a handle on how fast or slow they type, how accurate they are, all while improving by using an incentive like earning for their continual improvement.

Edit: I have bought and held 20 TPC on Steem-Engine and it works well. Look up at my picture under a comment, I withdraw to Steem Engine too!

New project, new functionality. Let's type and earn!

great idea! education & tokens are needed. I'm still waiting for a "duo lingo" where lessons creators earn tokens and of course the learner earns tokens too :)

Hey @tykee, this is interesting. I have to write another reply as the other is for tipu to curate your post here. Typing . . . I am a secretary and type 90 wpm and usually when people hear me, it sounds like horse racing, you know. Will follow. Wishing you success.

This idea seems amazing and thank you for doing something for Steem Blockchain.I will check it out and try to use it.Best wishes for this project.

So happy for you! :)

It looks really really fun. I will comment about one specific point. I am wondering about the potential use of the TPC coins? Any plans with this respect? This may help to increase the value of the token.

Thank you and I am happy you like the idea. One of the use cases of the token is the payment for professional services, which will be available in a couple of weeks. We are already reaching out to a many professional freelancers, and we have been getting positive feedbacks. We strongly believe that the value of the token will stay balance if it the main payment for services like Translations, Content writing, Documentation, and so on is TPC coin. Also, soon, we will implement another exciting feature which will cause people to compete, and probably win each others TPC. Since I known the success of any project is based on marketing, I have a team that are very serious in spreading the news about the project. Projects like this have huge potential user-base. This is just the starting point. We will come up with more use cases to make the token even more valuable.

Great to read about all these ideas.

Maybe on the longer term, it would be good to offer concrete (related) stuff that could be directly bought with the coins, beyond services (a bit like what actifit is doing). This would offer a new purpose to the token: being used as a currency.

Anyways, I will keep an eye on what is going on with your project ;)

I have a couple of things in mind, but I need to plan on how they will fit in properly. I will sure get good ways to implement them. Thanks!

Hmm... Let me try first. Then I will comment again based on my experience after using this.

Posted using Partiko Android

maybe start to add some TPC tokens to the sellwall if you want people to start...

I'm SO excited about this! I love typing.. I have written poetry about the art of typing, how it is like playing an instrument and can be very relaxing. According to this, I cannot be the only person who enjoys typing and challenging themselves to improve skills.

Also---- my education and experience is in various elements of business.

This post makes me happy!!

Awesome! Glad you like the idea.:))

damn, don't buy votes plz... have a !BEER cheers!

A good idea for user to train to type. I think could add in the basic typing skills to train users to type in a proper way. Like when I learn to type with typewriter when I'm in school.
