OpenSeed development update. 2020-jan-14

Disclaimer: This is meant as a brief overview the state of OpenSeed and its development. This is meant to catalog progress and not to be seen as an official announcement from our team. Official press releases will be handled by the @openseed account and will have a more polished appearance.


For those new to the project, welcome. OpenSeed is a cross platform protocol and tool kit designed to help developers streamline their process by offering data persistence through the merging of on and off chain functionality. We are in our fourth week of officially existing as a project though OpenSeed has existed to one extent or another well before our official announcement. It is currently being developed by the OpenSeed team and with suggestions from the community.

*We will not keep a log of your movements, but will record your last known location for use in location aware applications. However, 3rd party applications may employ some form of tracking so be mindful when downloading or using applications.


OpenSeed is being developed in the open over at github (link). However, the current code base isn't ready for deployment so for those wanting to spin up their own server we're not there yet. If you're keen on helping us reach our goals or would like to offer your services as a graphic designer join out discord server here.

See you there!

Thanks for the update. I looked into this a bit deeper the last few days including watching Andrarchys interview with Exyle.

It was very informative and it is going to be exciting when you have the full release, especially as it pertains to onboarding.

Great job.

Thanks for the comment taskmaster, and the one on Discord as well. Hopefully the updates will come quicker as we ramp up development and start fine tuning things.
