Proposal: Ecency development and maintenance

Project description

This year 2020 was a great year in our ecosystem, out of many challenges, we learned a lot and community united more than ever. With Ecency rebrand, we started developing completely new website and desktop application. Combined with our mobile application, we believe we can onboard the masses. Our vision is to find perfect balance between these growing industries/aspects of blockchain, Social + Tokens + Marketplace.

We are really excited about future of Ecency and how far we came. Ecency website is built with cutting edge technology, the fastest frontend on Hive. Ecency mobile application is feature full, complete mobile experience to onboard masses. Ecency desktop is the only functional, maintained, secure desktop application on Hive. Services like dedicated imagehoster instance and custom unified push notifications for website, desktop and mobile apps makes Ecency stand out and future proof, scalable and all of that is opensource. 🚀

As of right now, our team maintains and continue to develop following services, most opensource.

Some of these might be too technical but rest assured all of them play an integral part in our ecosystem's success. We believe services contribute to opensource and decentralized nature of our communities.

Do you think Ecency brings value to Hive?

With this proposal we aim to cover a lot of the features on our roadmap as well as help us support open infrastructure to scale and offer unique, niche products and features. Please support Ecency in our mission to create opensource, decentralized, thriving, innovative softwares!

Explanation of proposal costs

Most of these funds will be used to develop new features and cover server costs. Plus Witness earnings from @good-karma which is already dedicated to this mission, additional funds will certainly help bring back couple of our mobile developers and more actively push our mobile onboarding efforts. Move and add missing features to Ecency website. Improve gamification via Pointing system that converts to Tokens, explore avenues of innovation on community points system. Integrate existing Hive services, Trollbox or Group community based chatting system and more.

Benefits

Costs

Daily: 350 HBD
Monthly: 10500 HBD

Labor (Development+Management): ~160x2 hours per month, 9600 HBD
Recurring costs (Servers): ~$2000, ~2000 HBD

We have 4 developers and 1 designer/illustrator and getting all of them full time is not reasonable ask, so we are load balancing it with 2 full time person. But 4 devs will be working, 3 person mobile, 2 person (web+desktop), 2 person backend, plus 2 person designer/illustrator, all interconnected because some of us bring multiple skillset to the team.

State of DHF

  • As of right now there is around ~625000 HBD available for proposals
  • Daily possible funding on Decentralized Hive Fund is ~6250 HBD
  • We are asking Daily 350 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 brings to Hive and support us in common vision and goal!
