Yesterday, after reading the comment section of my previous post I realized how many projects I forgot to mention…some very important ones! So without further ado, let’s jump into the extended list of very important projects to pay attention to on the Steem blockchain.
Utopian.io has created a way to reward open-source contributions thanks to the Steem blockchain. For almost a year now, people have been providing translations, pull requests, documentations, bug reports and more. Some very interesting developments are coming soon to utopian.io…such as a bounty request interface as well as a more generic platform for development contributions.
Smart Media Tokens will be a huge boon for this project as it will allow to spread it’s wings and do things that are not possible currently with a single token. If I were to put money in an SMT, Utopian would definitely make it to the top of the list.
By far my favorite general-purpose interface for the Steem blockchain. Writing in it is a charm, the dashboard is really useful, bookmarks, favorite user and more. I’ve heard they are working on something in collaboration with User Authority to provide an alternative trending feed that brings more quality content rather than who spent the most money on promotion bots.
What I am most interested in is how they are going to deal with the incoming Hivemind protocol, which will allow for the creation of open and closed communities. On this will hinge a lot of user adoption in my opinion.
I haven’t used musing.io yet but I am very interested in the concept. Quora was a huge success by creating a good place for people to ask questions. What remains to be seen is how they are going to police the garbage content that will inevitably come by people trying to cheat the system.
This is another great project that will benefit from having their own Smart Media Token. Without a doubt, it’s an interesting implementation of the Steem blockchain.
How could I have forgotten Esteem and Surfer by @Good-Karma? He has completed cornered the market for mobile and desktop app when it comes to a “Steemit-like” interface (along with major improvements). It will be interesting to see what direction those apps will take once SMTs & Hivemind will come online.
One major advantage that a desktop app is that it is not bound by internet laws the same way a website is. So if there is sensitive content released by outlet such as Wikileaks and other, we will have a safe path to access that content without censorship.
I can’t believe I forgot to mention this one yesterday. Fundition is opening brand new possibilities when it comes to funding projects via our upvotes. Yet another one to watch for when SMTs launch. Check it out today, it’s really worth exploring all those interesting projects being launched every day to make the world a better place.
Which other Steem projects do you believe we should pay attention to in the next 6 months? Let us know if the comment box below.
