OCD Communities Incubation Program - Update #2

Time for an update on the Community Incubation Program, we've received quite a bit of new applications and even added a few new ones. For those of you who've started new and unique communities focused at a certain genre that has the potential to raise a lot of activity and doesn't exist yet, please feel free to apply for our incubation program, either by writing in the comment section of these posts or contacting us on our Discord in the community-incubation channel.

Without further ado, here's some updates in subscribers, delegations and new additions since last post:

Communities that we were supporting and got in touch with us recently:

New additions

Communities we're still waiting on/ haven't given us all their info - join our Discord to get in touch with us and for more info! (others can attest that the process is not too complicated :D)

  • Lightpainters United
  • dSound
  • Vimm
  • Foodies Bee Hive

For those not knowing why we're doing these posts, it's to highlight diverse communities and get them some delegation and curation support from the rest of stakeholders. Communities are the strongest when there's a broad selection of different ones for newcomers to choose and find what they're interested in. Since there's no great way to monetize the work community leaders and their curators put behind each we are supporting them with HP delegation matching the subscriber amount they have and rewarding their curation reports so they can grow and reward their curators on a constant basis. This is why in the list above we are linking both to the communities and curation accounts so readers can easily find them and subscribe to the ones they're interested in and help them out with vote trailing or delegations if they want to support them.

Here's some graphs provided by @dalz of the subscriber growth divided between the smaller sub count communities and the bigger ones:

He'll be updating these charts on a monthly basis and adding new communities to it as well. Hopefully many new ones coming in will push the current top communities in the first chart onto the second one. :)

Here are also some statistics provided by @dalz of the cumulative HP subscribing to each community under our incubation:

We're looking forward to adding more niche communities to our incubation program and helping them grow and make the most out of the community feature. Thanks for reading!

We would appreciate it if you want to delegate to @ocdb and earn some daily returns with a low fee which can be tracked on our website and vote for our witness if you appreciate what we're doing on Hive.


Have you stumbled upon some new communities that are unique to the ones above and would like to see them get supported? Feel free to mention them here in the comments or join us on Discord and talk about it there in the #community-incubation channel! Please note that this is only for unique niches/genres of communities, nothing "general original content" or country/language based. Thanks!
