I am pleased to announce that we have had a lot of recent developments on the Tokenbb Steem Powered Forums project, as can be seen by the recent posts and resteems on the @tokenbb blog.
Project manager @cryptoctopus had a brilliant use case idea to use the forums to incentivise users to test our product and receive upvotes from the public facing team for good suggestions and bugs found and reported by creating a new forum topic for each bug or suggestion.
It is great for gaming communities as well and Drugwars.io will have a test forum soon, the Steem Monsters forum is in the works and a US based Non Profit Organisation has expressed interest in using Tokenbb as well.
Incentivised forums are a perfect way for forum owners to create a niche following around their product and creates the demand for buying STEEM and powering up to have enough voting power to reward their users on the feedback they receive. Leasing STEEM POWER is another option that creates demand for Steem based payments, especially if the forum owner does not have enough funds to power up 100K in SP to make rewarding users worthwhile; this can be done at competitive weekly rates on the Minnow Booster Delegation Leasing Market if required.
Upvote bots have no effect on visibility within the Tokenbb forums, so it will be a more organic, interpersonal experience. Communication is really fast too and almost feels like realtime engagement is happening.
Registrations are now open!
If you would like a forum of your own, please have a look at our demo at https://test.tokenbb.io and see if this product will work for you, bear in mind it is still in alpha stage and not very pretty, there are lots of bugs to be found and reported and you may earn some nice upvotes by giving us feedback.
Once you have seen the demo and decided this is for you, then head over to our registrations page on https://tokenbb.io and pre-order a forum, then please be patient and give us a few days to set it up.
We have assigned a nominal value of 10 STEEM to be paid to the pay.buildteam Steem account on registration, to discourage spam forum creation.
Beneficiary reward structure
We plan to offer forum owners beneficiary rewards on all topics and comments that occur within their forum and of course Tokenbb will need to earn revenue to maintain its servers and continue development, so Tokenbb would need to earn a share of the beneficiary rewards as well. If this topic is of interest to you and you have suggestions, please leave comments on our forum via this link. The topic is pinned so if you go direct to https://test.tokenbb.io you will easily see it there.
Premium monthly fees are also planned if forum owners don't want Tokenbb to share in rewards or if they want to adjust their rewards percentage up or down within the allowed max range.
Open Source editor component for all Steem apps
Another great thing that has come of this project is an Open Source markdown editor for Steem apps, please have a look at @reggaemuffin's latest post:
The idea is that we can lower the barrier of entry for new Steem apps if a modular editor is available so the wheel does not have to be re-invented each time.
If any devs want to contribute to it, please feel free to get the Github details on the aforementioned post and help make an awesome Steem editor. Please contact @reggaemuffin for more details if needed.
We have a vision to incorporate Steem-Engine tokens so that forum owners can reward their users with both Steem upvotes and with custom tokens. Ideally, we would create a way that tokens can be distributed in tandem with upvotes in Proof-of-Brain (PoB) fashion.
This is probably some time away from implementation, we still have a lot to fix and improve on our alpha, but stay tuned for future updates...
What are you waiting for!
