Scotbot launch! Time to make your own custom token powered by proof of brain on Steem!

5개월 전

Good news Steemians! You can now start your own community powered by Proof of Brain distribution! It took us a few months, but we've been able to build a smart contract platform, allow for token creation and trading, stake (power up) the tokens, distribute them using a customizable python voting bot modeled after the SMT white paper, and more is coming.

Both @yabapmatt and I have put up our own money to get Steem Engine and the distribution system created, and there will be ongoing infrastructure and personnel costs to run the system, so we are offering it as a paid service, but we want to work with active and serious communities to make sure it is affordable and even profitable to run your own proof of brain token.

We're currently prototyping an integration of advertising into a custom website (we'll use condenser, the code behind steemit.com), which we can run on your behalf for your token.

One thing the new communities running off of the website will like is that we'll display post rewards in your token! So, it won't show how much steem you're earning. Instead it'll show how much of your community's token the post is earning.

The next major step after getting the prototype launched is incorporating advertising into the custom websites. If this all works your investment in a Scotbot community will generate more revenue in ads than is spent on running the community! What you do with that revenue is up to you!

Will you collect it and lambo-up? Or will you buy tokens with it to burn to inflate the price? How will you manage the project?

So many thanks!

This project couldn't launch without @harpagon or @yabamatt who created the smart contract platform and built a front end for it.

We were lucky to borrow @asgarth (thanks @jarvie and @steempeak), and he built the exchange that's on the platform modeled after the steem/sbd market.

@wehmoen built a block explorer and we link out to it on the site.

@beggars took over site creation and has taken on lead developer role for the steem-engine front end.

@someguy123 created and now manages the crypto converter that's powering how we can deposit and trade other cryptos onto the exchange.

@holger80, master of python and beem, took on constructing Scotbot and allowing for many customizations.
@inertia built a second block explorer and has been helping us track down bizarre transactions and coordinate dev ops.

@crystalhuman and @clayboyn have been helping us with some user concerns along the way.

We're of course standing on the shoulders of the Steem platform so thank you to the Steemit team.

It's been a great team and we're super productive! I'm looking forward to more!

What's next?

Beyond the custom websites that generate you revenue for your community we have a few things planned. Next up on the crypto converter side is the integration of EOS and EOS tokens. So, not just trading EOS, but we'll trade the 100+ tokens that live on EOS.

This is another step in turning steem-engine into a one stop trading shop to turn any asset class into a different asset class. Take crypto, tokens, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, commodities, futures, or government fiat and turn it into any of other assets and have it happen transparently on the Steem blockchain!

So, we got custom sites with ads in the works, a crypto converter that's gonna keep expanding, and we've started on a STO/ICO/IEO launcher! Once we've made it easy to gather money here then it makes more sense to launch tokens here. Build a business, register the token, and launch a security. Or go the ICO route where you have a product functioning and it's powered by the token you sell via an ICO. We'll help with both. You'll setup a crowdfund like kickstarter where you can set the goal, send the money back if it doesn't reach goal, and we'll get multiple currencies accepted there!

These are exciting times!

Greasing the wheels

I've placed a 10,000 ENG sell wall at 0.8 ENG/Steem. This is a 20% discount for the first 10 communities that would like to distribute their tokens with scotbot. With Steem prices low and this discount it's a really inexpensive time to launch the first independent token communities built on top of Steem!

Ready to Start?

SO MANy use cases i cant even BEGIn to count them all!

IMAGINE when people can MAKE POSTS and COMMENTS about price fluctuations and u can link back to the comments on coingeko site! YOU CAN BE the LARGEST contributor to steemengine's publicity in this way!

cool! we'll take a look at it.

@aggroed, sounds very intresting, I am part of #steemsilvergold, would love to talk more about this.

·
·
·

Thank You for Helping Me spend my Money on Steemmonsters. Love It

·
·
·

Lol 😂

This is what I am talking about.

Thanks to your entire team for putting this together. It is really amazing how community members stepped up to push Steem forward. There is no depending upon one centralized company to get things done around there. This is the epitome of decentralization.

I am going to have to get some ENG tokens. I believe you are onto something that could be massive. The integration of the EOS family of tokens is a another monumental step. Bringing it all together makes sense.

·

Hopefully the price recovers now

·
·

eos integration + free eos accounts for steemans can save steem from 1 cent steem like golos

·
·
·

1 cent for a base layer token with all known issues, and maximization, seems rather generous long term. Especially if platforms using SCOT will reward ALSO in Steem.

·
·
·
·

steem should be $1 at least, steem should be $10 if we had more users.... metacalfs law , value of telecom network grows exponentially with more users

·
·
·
·
·

Just users, without additional utility, is merely 9m new accounts per years which are ready to dump/create down pressure.

Telcos have both paying customers and upsell strategies. Even more in developing markets does that matter when looking purely at user numbers.

Uncle Keynes would be happy but increased numbers does not result in scarcity, or increased token value. It just means more people will some day sell it.

It's about utility.

Now look at ENG. ENG is a central token in this "not STINC evolution" and needed for everything. That's utility. That's when scarcity will drive price up, because everyone needs it for day-to-day use.

Daddy Likes ;-)

I hope people like the ones who made this reddit post would see this accomplishment... I hope you guys succeed and thank you for putting your own time and money into this

https://www.reddit.com/r/steemit/comments/bksi71/so_the_platform_and_currency_is_pretty_much_boned/

G'day,
I'm a bit of a novice and this might be off topic?? But........

We are looking at ways to build our own Crypto / token to be used a Currency in our community.

There are a couple of hundred of us that live in a Bush Community out of town. We are lucky enough to have no local government (no rates etc), no planning or building regulations and no provided services.

We are looking at a peer to peer currency as a method of trading while still keeping fiat currency for normal purchases.

Is this something that could be done by this project???
Would love some advice and comment.

·

SAND - @ackza is the locality blockchain token authority; wait for Dan to weigh in for June, but it looks like a Complimentary Currency could be just the thing for small localities that need to support each other. Link to the nearest big city token, and expand your network?

·
·

@testing123, I don't think Dan is into social kind of platform like Steemit, he might love to create a community but assuredly he is going to create a different kind of platform that supports developers and project designers. The best choice for him is to allow his EOS crypto to be also distributed through Steemit, that will also increase the value of EOS , he is a business man.

really/ Facebook likes? come on man replace those with steem upvotes

Alright, excellent communications.
I really do not want to see Steem go the way, of BTS, so I am a believer.
We will be in touch, cheers, best to all your great crew!

Hey aggroed I would like you to Lambo me up please 😃

Is aggroedit.com the new Steemit killer? This is all amazing.
You guys are definitely the MVPs of the blockchain at the moment, this is super exciting. Now, let's get communities up and rolling!

Great news @aggroed, thank you and all involved in this for putting it together, with this functionality and the coming ones the utility of Steem just keeps going up, this is awesome.

Great one as always .... you are the Shining Steem Star at the moment!
Hope to see this soon in action with a project taking on. An example for others to follow.

You are making #scotbox to become a grand house.

Next up on the crypto converter side is the integration of EOS and EOS tokens. So, not just trading EOS, but we'll trade the 100+ tokens that live on EOS.

That integration will be a big booster for the #scotbox on the history of blokckchain.

Thank you @Aggroed and team.

Resteemed!

a Grand House Indeed

Advertising your paid product as a "featured" post where my feed should be? Ugh.... this site is getting so ugly... :/

·

What interface are you using? Steemit?

·

you know you can close it right? It can be difficult to see in nightmode.

:)

!dramatoken

·
·

Mind if I put some of my products and links up in front of everything you're trying to do? Just a popup every few hours that you can easily click to get rid of. Would you be okay with that? What if a few other people want to do that to you, too, are you still okay with it? Of course not. So what makes it okay for someone to do that to me? :)

if it sucks we will downvote it.

we apparently like this.

i find it interesting.

·
·
·
·

Yeah, that makes sense. Downvote featured stuff that sucks. I'd rather not have to do that, but that's the best option now.
And yeah, mute is a great feature, I recommend it! The other person isnt notified you muted them (but they can find out certain ways). It does no harm. Just stops you from having to see their stuff anymore. I find it makes my experience here better because there are a number of people I can't stand.
That said, mute doesn't work on featured posts. If someone you have muted gets featured, you have to see it front and center when you use the site.

·
·
·

I'm seeing everything you are seeing. Yeah, I am pretty okay with it. If I were not or when I don't want to see it, I use busy.org instead.

It just a featured post by the company that owns this front end. :)

Great job everyone this really improves what community leaders and Steemians can do with posts and rewards.

Thanks to those who are working each day to make Steem interesting, fun and of course more valuable.

And this doesn't get to be a featured post?!?! It's Huge news!

This is a great step beyond for Steem!
Congrats to all involved!

Great! congrats to all the team! hope so much people and communities get involved in this project!

this is wonderful ... the communities to power

Sounds interesting but since I’m dumb I’m still confused. Lol

I’m going to create my own token for customers at my shop soon. I’ll probably bother you guys when I’m ready for that with some most likely stupid questions.

·

A stupid question is a question never asked @blewitt. I don't think most devs here, especially these guys expect us all to know everything. I'm sure I'd have more stupid questions :) A Blewitt token sounds cool ;)

Congratulations @aggroed it's definitely a big leap and achievement for all the steemit community

Hmm, this would be suitable to try with one of my Steem projects, sadly it just isn't quite ready for this so perhaps later!

Keep up the great work though! You're building this out with a great speed and that's something to respect for.

Well, I completely failed to understand why I need those "smart contracts" and this service. Maybe I am not the only one.

·

I don't believe you are the only one. It seems that crypto market participants don't care about any of this stuff at all.

In fact, it appears that they care less and less each day, despite these announcements of "great things!" that are happening.

·

Well, the distribution of tokens is one reason why. So now new apps can come in and rewards their user's activity. Also, once or if smt's launch they can just switch their scot tokens to their smt token.

I have a few questions about this Scotbot. Does it play bagpipes? Does it love finnan haddie? Is it pro- or anti-Brexit?

When you enter your private active key and pay the initial ENG fee, it is enrypted and securely transmitted to our server. We encrypt your private key as well as your token and account name, we do this using Steem's in-built encrypted memo feature.
We encrypt this memo which resembles a long string of gibberish text with a "#" infront of it, and only the steemsc account is allowed to decrypt this memo using its own private memo key. This creates an end-to-end encrypted chat message basically, only readable by both parties.
Your active key is NEVER stored as plaintext, so only the Scotbot server can see your key when the memo is decrypted and the Steem Engine team takes security very seriously.

This sounds a lit bit misleading. I believe, you also store the key of steemsc account on your servers. (Unless you do manual stuff for every action)

So, a potential attack on your servers still let an attacker access users' active private keys.

😂 Karen lol

Dear #aggroed @aggroed
dear friend your content is very good, you bring us updated information on the handling and movement of cryptocurrencies, sometimes I do not understand this topic very much, but I try to read to see if I can achieve something. Congratulations

This project is very intriguing, I need time to digest all the information and see how best to utilize what you have built. Thank you for your hard work!

If you ever want to get into the crowdfunding space via @crowdfunder, I am willing to give you or your partners a majority stake in the project.

I am only looking for passive income from it, nothing else.

My main project is @humanism but I want @crowdfunder to be Steem-based.

·

Congratulations.

We're interested to understand more about SCOT and the proposed crypto exchange powered by Steem Engine. Please feel free to reach out to our team members so that we can bring this discussion ahead.

I got as far as ScotBot Initialization, then it wants a key and
says select your token but there are none to select from. Went to
an empty discord chat room. I would like to prove I have a brain,
and learn more about the 'proof of brain' concept. I also need
oil, a heart, and courage. I'd greatly appreciate someone to email
me at madstudio30620@gmail.com and be my new friend and walk me
through it. On steem I am coolthingssite

Fix. That good and will to be my inspiration.

Y'all are epic.
Thanks for progressing this platform so much over the past few months.
Cheers

This is great news! I think it might be a good idea to instead of waiting on the first person to take advantage of this, you guys make a demo using it. That way people can see it in action vs trying to imagine what it could be used for.

I suppose it won't be necessary if someone jumps on quick though.

Time to make Steemit great again and put it back to TOP-5 coins in the market

good info, need to learn something about the tokens

Very cool ... I want see how this works out in long run :) very happy to see new things come up ;) Thanx :)

Best part i like about it is that you will be hosting websites for tokens. I hope it will be as simple and customizable as wordpress.com

Hi, @aggroed!

You just got a 0.16% upvote from SteemPlus!
To get higher upvotes, earn more SteemPlus Points (SPP). On your Steemit wallet, check your SPP balance and click on "How to earn SPP?" to find out all the ways to earn.
If you're not using SteemPlus yet, please check our last posts in here to see the many ways in which SteemPlus can improve your Steem experience on Steemit and Busy.

But why? What is the point of all these tokens? We already have a solid token called STEEM, making more on top is just convoluting for no benefit, plus it dilutes the value of STEEM even more. In case you haven't noticed it has fallen by orders of magnitude and there still isn't a solid market reason to buy STEEM for the regular person. Nor do I even understand why a "whale" would need it, other than to speculate on altcoin value.

Just why all of this? There is no need for the 100+ "tokens that live on EOS". It's just a complete labyrinth with no purpose.

·

This removed the need for the complicated and risky SMT plan. It's proof that SMT probably isn't the best way to go. My opinion, leave the data in the Original Steem chain vs a massive hardfork and massive risk (remember RC HF20, it sucked). Not that we shouldn't ever HF again, but we really gotta make sure we want it first, no rush. Also i'm really a fan of the RC's , as they already gave us some huge benefits and better sustainability, it was just a rough transition

·
·

remember HF20? Youre ON HF20 .... it was just the week long transition that sucked but they werent competent enough to keep steem running like normal

it was a mystery to me to know who was actually giving out the Mana and why some users got their mana before others LOL felt liek a team was manually going through and doing it

But i know that woulda been impossible and the hf20 mess was just because .....blockchain...replacing a moving engine...etc.... thats the excuse they will give

reality was they just didnt test it out maybe because they couldnt ... but they could...if they spent some money they could be using golos as a test net but that goes against their code of ethics .... we should use golso as our experiment and its not too late for Ned to buy up all of Golos for SO cheap

BEST NEWS IVE HEARD ALL DAY

Awesome development, you guys rock!

the perfect time to get tokens at this time, in this launch

am interesting post i must commend. more of this.

Wow I am impressed. I have so much more faith when Steem is in the hands of the community. Eat your heart out Ned.

·

Without Ned Steem wouldn't exist. He gave us beautiful code :D. I agree though the more community development and cooperation the better.

I see this as an extremely positive move. Great work everyone.

It's like a white-label Steemit centralized on your servers?

Posted using Partiko Android

·

Maybe!
But if so.... what does that mean?

·
·

It means no censorship resistance, no ownership of data. Kind of building Facebook on top of Steem. Difference is you have to pay for it. Not good for Steem, but very good for the people behind it I guess.

Its opensource code and they are working on a consensus system and mining eventually.
