Funding request

All thanks to community, project has been helping dozen new developers everyday to build on Steem/Hive.

Going forward we would like to promote and help getting new developers on chain to build their dapps and improve onboarding of masses.

We have initial draft of roadmap to improve Hivesigner here on Github, we welcome everyone to give feedback in comments here or on Github.

We are requesting 70 HBD per day for the next 2 years. This comes to 2100 HBD per month, which is approximately $1700 USD per month at current market prices for HBD.

Funds will be used to pay for servers, development and design work involved new features and services.
We will publish monthly detailed report about progress and updates, improvements, bug fixes.

Why This Benefits Hive

The benefits of Hivesigner is that, it is offering easy to use and user-friendly authentication/signing while giving user confidence and security, it is offering "getting started quickly with blockchain integration and development" of new applications with traditional Rest API and OAuth 2.0.
