Explanation of proposal costs

90% of these funds will be used to develop new features and 10% covers server costs. Plus Witness earnings from @good-karma which is already dedicated to this mission, additional funds will help us scale our team of developers, more actively grow our development efforts to help newcomers. We also have regular newsletters and press-release updates to help with Hive and Ecency branding.
We would like to allocated some dev resources towards which has been idle in past few months. Allocate some resources towards New project could also be extended to be informative and easy to navigate like etherscan, other popular block explorers, all opensource.


  • Fastest, secure, feature-full, unique and opensource website frontend, mobile application and desktop interface. Dedicated infrastructure to support and serve ever growing visits.
  • Image hosting instance that can serve you even oldest images from years ago. Try it our on and you will know what we mean, open any post older than 3-4 years and see if images load for you. We noticed some images are visible in our instance that are missing from instance.
  • Dedicated Blockchain RPC node to handle traffic on Ecency apps and services.
  • Better, improved authentication system OAuth2, via continuous development of Hivesigner.
  • Better search functionalities and new APIs via Hivesearcher.

Edit history here: @ecency/ecency-development-and-maintenance-3?history

We have 9 developers and getting all of them full time is not reasonable ask, so we are load balancing it, all interconnected because some of us bring multiple skillset to the team, some of us full time, others part time.

State of DHF

  • As of right now there is around ~19,376,000 HBD available for proposals
  • Daily possible funding on Decentralized Hive Fund is ~193,760 HBD
  • We are asking Daily 396 HBD

We understand that during the duration of our proposal we may get partial funding sometimes, no funding sometimes. But it won't stop us from developing and delivering. We hope you see value Ecency team brings to Hive and support us in common vision and goal!

Thank you!
