Steem Tank is a Shark Tank style show where steemians pitch their projects to a panel of business experts with a view to getting support and potential investment. The twist is we try to help any project that comes on because the pitches are Steem based, and all steemians go to the same moon!
Five projects came on and here is the aftermath:
Steem SAVVY: @jongolson & @richardtaylor with @steemsavvy - learn the Steem blockchain from A to Z without needing a PhD in computer science - it's Steem for the rest of us!
-I like Steem SAVVY because it's a simple solution to a complex problem. Using Steem for the first time comes with a pretty steep learning curve. When you first get to Steem it can feel a bit overwhelming and I believe having landing points like Steem SAVVY will be great.
-Biggest hurdle: Awareness (and the one thing that should never be hard to find is the starting point).
-How we plan to help: Interview done with Team Savvy & @nicholaslive. From there we have a pitch video we can use when needing to spread info about Savvy. As a bonus I will throw in some paid YouTube promotion. I have offered my open DMs for any advice/consulting and I will do what I can to help bring awareness to Savvy.
Steem Open Bazaar: @diggndeeper.com with the project to get STEEM integrated on OpenBazaar.org
-The idea of integrating into Open Bazaar is a nice idea that I would like to help fund and is a great fit for the upcoming Steem DAO (worker proposal system). While this is an indirect investment (not equity or for direct ROI) they still benefit Steem as a whole.
-Biggest hurdles: Money.
-How we plan to help: @nicholslive is an expert on WPS as he has worked with Bitshares in the past and will help guide Diggn Deeper in structuring the proposal. From there I will help raise awareness and will kick start the proposal with some funding once the DAO is released.
Dcooperations: @clixmoney with DCooperation - a project to make steemians collaborate more with each other and with other steem communities and even crypto communities
-Dcooperations niche I feel can be an extension from projects like SAVVY. Once you learn steem now it's time to meet new people, engage and maybe even earn some crypto by participating in the Dcooperation community. This seems lovely and would benefit from collaboration with steem onboarding projects.
-Biggest hurdle: More SP (to bring more incentive to the community) & Awareness.
-How we plan to help: Right now I feel a lot of Steem are building on their own little islands. We can greatly benefit from bridging these islands together and creating synergy amongst projects. With that said I will be helping Dcooperation bridge with onboarding sites. I have offered my open DMs for any advice/consulting.
DLease: @thecryptodrive with DLease - passively growing your investment on the Steem blockchain has just become increasingly more attractive with the DLease.io P2P Digital Asset Leasing app.
-I like the idea of peer 2 peer lending. Would love to see this once resource credits become delegatable (preys to a higher power).
-Biggest hurdle: Awareness.
-How we plan to help: DLease is a fully built product ready to masses that provides ROI and a valuable use case for people looking to rent Steem Power. The first step would be an interview with Nicholas. From there we can pitch the video to investors. I plan to buy some YouTube promotion, as the 17% ROI should attract some crypto investors. I have offered my open DMs for any advice/consulting and I will do what I can to help bring awareness to Dlease.
Helpie-Caster: @bembelmaniac with the Helpie-Caster project which supports streamers on VIMM and has now created the VIEWER token to help streamers and viewers.
-The VT token that is distributed to streamers has real-world value by having giveaways with Steel Series (popular gaming hardware accessories company) & working with gheed.com giveaway platform.
-Biggest hurdle: Need SP to pay Streamers. Awareness.
-How we plan to help. Bembelmanic is doing a wonderful job hustling and making this partnership and growing the Viewer Token. I have offered to help sponsor and contest/giveaways via upvotes to help bolster the Streaming community on Steem.
