A few months ago at the Steem Creator's Conference, a crazy idea was born. Then at Steem Fest, that idea took some shape and after a lot of consulting and assessment, @Steemonboarding was created.
The primary vision of @Steemonboarding is to provide the tools for every Steemian around the world to successfully invite, welcome, and mentor their friends, family and acquaintances. All of this, in a format our modern age really wants: 2 minute long videos in their native language.
The project was very ambitious and in the hands of two community-focused, non-techy Steemians, it was going to be a challenge. We got incredible support on our project announcement posts and, after all the hype, we are finally delivering the first phase, the bulk of the work if you may.
Ten videos talking about the Steem Blockchain, in ten of the most spoken languages on Steem
Defining the topics, writing easy-to-understand scripts, translating each script into 10 languages, recording every video in a local accent and, coordinating a team of almost 20 people resulted in...
The website has 6 Tabs, but currently only 3 of them are browsable - we are still working on the other three -. Below we´ll explain what each tab is for:
Steem Profile - A direct link to our Steem profile, where the user can get to know the interface, explore posts, tags and users on a chain level. We are currently linking it to Steemit but in the near future we´ll decide if we change that for a busy, esteem, steempeak or any other interface based on the Steem Blockchain.
Modules - This is where the fun begins. The user is able to pick their own language out of 10 options and start learning what the Steem Blockchain is all about.
The Team - This wouldn't have been possible without a solid team in all the different areas that this project is aiming to cover. Most of this work has been pro-bono or people have charged very little for their help, thus, we mention every member of the team - giving credit where credit is due and at the same time providing with them with some visibility.
The next 3 tabs only show the legend Coming Soon. And its true, they're coming very soon!
Communities - This is where the newly onboarded user will be able to browse all the communities on Steem. Ideally, we will have videos here speaking about each community. We already have several community videos but we are not making them visible until we have enough to make an impact. If you are part of a community and you want it to be featured here, please contact someone from the team.
Dapps - The main showcase. This is where we want the new Steemian to finish their onboarding process. Currently, we are running several contests so we will have members of the steem community explaining their favorite a video speaking about their Steem Blockchain based Dapps. This will be an integral resource center for new steemians to explore the many applications they can join by having a Steem account.
For the time being, and thanks to a recommendation from @therealwolf, we are linking the Dapp tab to steemapps.com
Create a Steem Account - This is the main attraction of the website and thus, the most difficult to develop (although we are almost ready for it). After the user watches the first ten videos and they know the basics about the Steem Blockchain, they will be eligible to create a steem account if they manage to pass a little test about Steem, all in their own language.
For the time being, and thanks to a recommendation from @roelandp, we are linking the "Create account" tab to signup.steemit.com
We wish these three tabs were already finished but, since all of the team is working without little to no remuneration, we've been developing this part a little slower than we thought we would.
Which leads us to...
Remember that our @Fundition campaign is live, and any steem and fiat donation you make, will help us develop this project faster!
Our main goal is to have a concrete, specific message that explains what Steem Blockchain is all about to new users, and to do it consistently in as many languages we can. This way, anyone from any place in the world who is joining the Steem Blockchain, will have the same mindset of a long term, community focused, and investing prone approach.
So far we have the same Ten Topics in Ten Different Languages, and we are planning to add 10 more languages in the next phase of site development.
|What is crypto?|
|What is Blockchain?|
|What is Steem?|
|What are Steem Dapps?|
|Where does the money comes from?|
|Passwords, keys and security|
|Your voice is worth something|
|Engaging through comments|
|Finding your community|
We believe consistency is key, this means that all of the videos are simple, short and they have the same message no matter the language they are in.
The Full Steem Onboarding Team
As we mentioned earlier, SteemOnboarding is a collective effort from people from all over the world and this wouldn't have been possible without any of these amazing Steemians.
As a long term project, and now that the bulk of the work has been done, we are ready to tackle on the next steps:
|Phase 2||Phase 3||Phase 4|
|Dapps and Communities Tabs ready to be browsed in english||PR, Mkting & awareness Campaigns within the Steem Blockchain||Mass Adoption Campaigns in traditional social media platforms|
|Full automation of the account creation process||Steemonboarding interface ready to host Tutorials and courses from Steemians from outside the Team||Monetization for Course/Lesson Creators hosted on our Website|
|Ten more Languages (2nd gen languages) for the first set of videos||Website and Social Media Channels start to monetize with Ad revenue|
|Full Test for the account creation process||Dapps and Communities tabs subtitled in the 20 existing languages|
|Ten more videos for the First Generation languages||Second set of videos for the 2nd gen Languages|
What does the Steem Onboarding team want from you?
We would love to get your feedback on ways we can improve in the future, or perhaps suggestions for topics to cover in upcoming modules or features to have on the site. We are making this tool for you and so we want to make sure it is something you would feel excited to share with friends and family!
As you can see, we have an ambitious road map of new features, languages and modules we would like to add.
Not only will your feedback be invaluable, but your support as well! Please check out our Fundition Campaign if you would like to donate and support the development of this project.
Thank you all so much for your support along the way, and we can't wait to hear from you!
