@SteemPeak has created something new we think you'll love: steempeak.com.
We are huge fans of the Steem blockchain and the blogging apps Steemit.com and Busy.org and we know Steem, INC encourages developers to build new platform on the blockchain, so we've created a site based off the Steem social media aspect of the blockchain. We love it and think you will too.
What does SteemPeak have to offer already?
This is only our very first release with 2-3 more planned for JUNE alone.
- STANDARD FEATURES you are already familiar with
- NO DELAY on commenting and voting (using a buffer to give you more freedom)
- DRAFTS (should make any power user ecstatic)
- BOOKMARKS (save all those posts you love, or want to read later)
- WYSIWYG EDITOR (because most of the world has no clue how to do those fancy codes)
- LARGER IMAGES in feed (as photographers we love this)
- COMMENTING inside feed and replies section (this is a huge time saver)
- GRID VIEW OPTION (lots of posts on the same page is a fun different way to check your feed)
- VOTE SLIDER for everyone (big and beautiful)
- VOTE VALUES (now you can see just how generous your friends are)
- CHARTS (for the statistics loving geeks we have some great charts)
- GSMI NUMBERS (these statistics are a wonderful way to understand the true value and potential of Steem)
- SAVED TOPICS (quick way to search those keywords you look at all the time)
Simplify the STEEM experience for the new users and be a one stop shop for the advanced users.
New Users: If you're reading this you're likely already a steem user. What we want to create is a site you would feel much more comfortable sending your friends to. Better looking and more intuitive for a non-steemian or a new steemian. We want to help guide a new user from the beginning of their experience and help them understand and become advanced users.
Advanced Users: We plan to have all the normal features plus most of the really exciting and time saving tools on SteemPeak so you don't have to go to lots of different sites looking for tools.
We love getting your insights as to features you'd love to see. We've proven to be quick on development even as a part time project for all of us. But here is a roadmap we created for June.
Lots of awesome functions!! You saw that correctly: autovotes, scheduling, night mode and even more cool developments on bookmarks and drafts.
WE MADE A BIG STATEMENT
We know it's been controversial theme on steemit so we're excited to put our two cents in the design of SteemPeak ...WE REMOVED TRENDING
We didn't remove all the functionality we mostly removed the WORD from our site/design. Except for in URL for consistency among all Steem based sites.
Highest rewarded posts can still be found:
You can go to TOPIC (aka "Category", "Keyword")
By default it's all topics sorted by "reward" which for now is similar to trending.
Don't be surprised if (in the future) you notice even better sorting mechanisms that take into account the type of content you love the most and the people you follow.
So we hope you are on board with this change. We believe trending in the past led to really bad expectations for new Steem users. Financially speaking no one will stop people/companies from investing into their posts however that shouldn't mean this creates "A TREND" or "HOTNESS". We recognize some (even myself @jarvie) love seeing what posts are being rewarded the most, we can still sort by "REWARD" and determine for ourselves if that constitutes "A Trend"
BTW Did you know that on STEEMPEAK you can then save your favorite topics and go back to them frequently and easily.
We aren't done with this subject we think there are still ways to improve the browsing experience of SteemPeak/Steemit/Busy.
We believe that you should NEVER put your KEYS anywhere online that you don't trust. So far that mostly means don't put it anywhere other than
We suggest using your ACTIVE KEY not your OWNER KEY when using STEEMCONNECT. We presently don't even have a way to change your password so owner key would have no advantage.
On steemit you can retrieve that key by going to: Wallet > Permissions > Active > Login to Show
We're photographers who met through @photogames.
@asgarth came up with the idea and is the lead developer.
-- He's been a software developer based in Italy working on web applications and enterprise business software since 2006. He started working on SteemPeak as a personal project. He sees SteemPeak as a single entry point for the blockchain and the community around it.
@dmytrokorol is our designer
-- Runs a small but awesome graphic design studio in Ukraine since 2007.
His goal is to design SteemPeak as user-friendly as possible and make mass adoption of steem blockchain easier.
@jarvie is the PR Guy and Tester
-- Full time photographer since 2008 based in the U.S. and has experience working and commissioning new websites.
He has an interest in seeing Steem (site and currency) excel and wants SteemPeak to save him time and also be a place he can send friends.
We all come up with new tools and ideas... We're really excited about some of the ones we have planned even beyond the "Coming Soon" features. Hope you're ready to come along for the ride
