Plans for our new "Steem-Bounty" Witness

in #witness-category6 years ago (edited)

We are excited to announce our new witness “steem-bounty” and want to ask for your support and vote.

“steem-bounty” is a witness run by both @famunger also known as “swisschris” and @knircky.



As investors and active community members of the Steem ecosystem, we want to focus our energy and resources on Steem to achieve the following goals:

  • Expand functionality and increase ease of use for everyone
  • Grow the value of the Steem ecosystem and the STEEM token
  • Support new users and authors who bring quality content to the blockchain

What we have done so far

We are just getting started as a witness, but both @famunger and @knircky have been Steem investors and active community members since the Summer of 2016. We have both left corporate jobs to focus on cryptocurrency investment and entrepreneurship.

Brief background:
@famunger studied economic computer science and completed an executive MBA at University St. Gallen, Switzerland, has been an entrepreneur for more than 10 years, and served as CFO and head of the IT-Management group of a mid size consulting company
@knircky studied economic computer science and has been working in IT consulting and IT sales for more than 10 years before deciding to focus on crypto investing and entrepreneurship last year.

We have decided to double-down on Steem a bit more and contribute to the development and improvement of the platform by launching projects that improve the value and usability of both the token and the application.
We have also supported the local steemit meetup in Philadelphia and created accounts for many new users in order to simplify and accelerate the on-boarding process.

We are running our witness and a separate seed server leveraging the services from @someguy123 using two 64GB RAM, Xeon E5 Processor, 2x240 GB SSD, Dedicated Servers.

We are also updating the STEEM price every hour using the script created by @yabapmatt to calculate the average price between bittrex, poloniex and binance.

We are just getting started now but, in the future, will look forward to populating this section of our witness report with more details in the future.

What we plan for the future

As you may imagine from the name of our witness, we are working on a project around bounties and are very close to launching the first version. We are very excited about this project and believe that it will enhance the usability of Steem for users by creating a new way to use this blockchain. We believe it will increase the value of steem by attracting “outside money” to the ecosystem and making it easier for that money to enter the Steem economy. We also believe it will serve as an incentive to attract new users to the system by establish a new use for the blockchain. Together, these two factors will increase the value and price of the steem currency.
We will announce the details of our project in a future post as soon as we are a bit closer to launching. We are hard at work to get to the market as soon as possible and expect to make our announcement within in the next few weeks.
Further ideas like supporting “challenges” and funding ideas are in the making as a later step.

Thank you!

Cool deal is this like ICO bounty programs?

thanks for all the details. I decided to vote for the account as a witness. I'm not super familiar with how this works but I like what you have said. I onboarded an investor in Philly so I will let him know about the meetup there. It's nice to see the local communities doing outreach.

Awesome thank you so much. Are you from Philly also?

Nope, I'm in LA but I work on projects with someone in Philly and he's now a Steemian lol. I'll get him over to the meetup. He's a smart guy and doing lots of fun crypto projects.

Great mission winess @steem-bounty. Vere good ideas

thank you!

Followed. I am really curious about your idea to bring in more money from the outside.

Are you considering ideas to increase internal voting re-distribution as well?

See my idea here if you like.

Steemit Devs: Please force a fraction of a user's upvotes to go to other users

Great idea!

That's awesome @knircky. Congrats to you and partner @famunger . I look forward to hearing more here and at our next event! Also we should include some time talk about the voting process at some point. What do you think?

Thank you! We are excited about it.

i wish you good luck. i believe 85% of steemit users want to see this platform grow and evolve into a juggernaut that will change the future of social media and cryptocurrencies for the better.

Yep. And so do we, we we will try to enhance functionality and grow the token value.
