Swapsteem is a peer to peer exchange for Steem blockchain. We are creating a platform for Steem users to enable P2P trading of STEEM/SBD to different Fiat and Crypto Currencies using secure escrow transactions. This post is regarding the new @tokenbb based forum we have added at Swapsteem. This forum enables swapsteem users and the community to interact about swapsteem and get rewarded with upvotes from the community.
Why do we need a forum?
Swapsteem is a P2P marketplace which is different from traditional exchanges. It requires some familiarity with steem to be able to trade on swapsteem. Since a lot of users are not so comfortable with the technical details we get a lot of questions by the community in our discord and steemit blog. A forum is a centralized platform for keeping track of such queries so that others can also see the questions previously asked without having to chase people for answers.
What is @tokenbb?
As announced by @tokenbb in their post TokenBB Is Now Officially Powered by BuildTeam! and @reggaemuffin in New Project – TokenBB Frontend – A forum client for the Steem Blockchain
" TokenBB (@tokenbb) is a free, remotely hosted, blockchain powered message board (forum) service that helps people create their own online communities. "
Tokenbb is a forum application built by @buildteam which enables steem users to create and manage community forums. The platform incentivizes both forum owners and users with steem upvotes. Tokenbb.io is currently in alpha phase and there might be some bugs as frequent enhancements are being done by them. Users can report bugs or features on their Github Repo Issues..
The Swapsteem Forum
As a part of the @tokenbb alpha testing program, we have created our forum at https://swapsteem.tokenbb.io where users can create topics to talk regarding swapsteem. The topic may be anything including queries about the platform, suggestions, bug reports and what not! These topics will be visible to others and can be curated and commented by other users to form a discussion. The topics and forum are managed by @swapsteem who has the authority to delete any comment/post on the forum.
