Proposal: Dev Portal Documentation


I will provide documentation intended for application and tool developers who work on the Steem blockchain.


One month from the start of the approved proposal, from 2019-09-01 until 2019-09-30. Total pay requested for timeframe: 3770 SBD


For the duration of the proposal work timeframe:

  • Periodic pull requests directed at the devportal github maintained by Steemit, Inc. to appear on once merged.
    • "API Definitions" section updates
    • "Recipes" section updates, which are programming-language-agnostic tutorials
    • Maintenance of existing documentation to ensure ongoing relevance.
  • Ongoing staged versions of the documentation to appear on, in cases where Steemit, Inc. is blocked (too busy) to merge the changes to the official devportal.
  • Updates using decline-payout-posts to detail ongoing deliverables in the timeframe.

Rational for Proposal Funding

Using the proposal system means I can decline-payout for related posts, be compensated by SPS Inflation, and thus avoid seeking compensation through Reward Pool Inflation for these deliverables.

In a sense, my ultimate goal is to turn this SPS Inflation into demand for STEEM Power by empowering application developers to expertly deploy Steem applications, leading to their continued desire to power up.


I was on the Steemit, Inc. payroll for 10 months. During that time, I learned the development philosophy and culture and I was part of a developer group called SteemWorks.

I am also accomplished at reverse-engineering, which is a requirement for doing heavy documentation on the Steem blockchain.

Previous Work

During my time at Steemit, Inc., I was part of the team that contributed to the following devportal updates:

Since then, I have provided several updates to the official devportal, which have all been merged by Steemit, Inc.:

Proposal Approval/Rejection Criteria

You should approve this proposal if you would like me to be compensated through SPS Inflation rather than the Reward Pool Inflation.

downvoting yourself with your own bots ... some kind of a statement i suppose, lol ... eeeh well ...:p

30.08.2019 22:58

This is a good proposal idea but are you seriously asking for 130,000 SBD for a months work that is mostly done already? Seems a bit much

Hm, on steempeak I see 3,770 SBD total pay. The second link you put. On the first link i shows 130,000 SBBD?

28.08.2019 15:17

According to it's actually total pay of 3,770 SBD for a month which sounds reasonable to me.

28.08.2019 15:21

According to my screenshot and the other link it's 130,000 SBD which is pretty clearly a mistake. That's why I'm working to get to the bottom of the bug so it can be reported to the proper developer.

Since @inertia didn't put the daily pay request in this proposal post I had to follow the links to the proposals to figure it out to decide if the proposal even made sense. In doing so, I found two different values. I'm a dev and can easily query the blockchain but the point of this is for it to be better UX for average users as well.

28.08.2019 15:27

Since @inertia didn't put the daily pay request in this proposal post I had to follow the links to the proposals to figure it out to decide if the proposal even made sense.

Good point, I should have at least listed some kind of amount. I added it just now.

It is kind-of a chicken-and-the-egg experience for these early proposals. I envision the UX improving to the point where proposal creation is a single form. In this case, I wanted to make sure the scope of work was well defined so I could figure out how to fill in the numbers for the actual proposal.

Turns out, I picked 29 days from the datepicker UI, instead of 30. I should have specified exactly 12:00 AM on the first day and 11:59 PM on the last day.

28.08.2019 15:38

The woes of the SPS! I'm sure everything will iron out.

28.08.2019 16:36

Yep. Maybe I should emphasize that I'm happy with it so far. The UI we have is not bad for the first 24 hours of the mainnet hardfork.

28.08.2019 17:30

It's 3,770 SBD total pay.

Yeah, looks like has some localization issues. 130,000 SBD should be displayed as 130.000 SBD (daily rate).

28.08.2019 15:28

All fixed now. Thanks for noticing the issue.

28.08.2019 17:50

steempeak still seems to show this 130 THOUSAND SBD number that is really making people .prematurely and unnecessarily .. jealous :D

04.09.2019 18:42

To avoid confusion, all Steem front-ends and Steem-related sites should display only two digits after the decimal sign, whether it's a point or a comma.

15.09.2019 17:38

There will be no 130SBD per day on Sep 1.

Proposals pays only 1/100 of its budget daily.

28.08.2019 15:41

And it grows only about 2K SBD per day. So on Sep 1 max payment will be around 80 SBD

28.08.2019 15:43

I like the proposal, but it's 3.7k over a month, I would like to have a better sense of what you plan on doing.

28.08.2019 16:53

That's a great suggestion.

Steem Hard Fork 21 ( 이하 HF21)
다운보팅 파워가 도입되어,

기존 HF20 이전에서
업보팅 파워를 소모하여 다운보팅 할 수 있도록 한 것에서,
다운보팅을 업보팅과 별도의 파워를 사용하여 할 수 있도록 하였다.

관련 글들은
이 글의 아래 목록에서 찾아 볼 수 있다.

hf21 에서 도입된 다운보트 파워
잔량과 회복을
보팅 파워 와 마찬가지로
확인할수 있다.

자, 여기서 남는 문제.

남아서 섞어 나가는 다운보팅 파워를 어디에 쓸 것인가?


탈중앙 매체에서 불가피한 다운보팅의 원래 취지대로,
스팀 블록체인의 생존성을 위협하게될 수 있는,
저작권 위반 이나, 아동 포로노, 해킹, 스캠 피싱 등의 사기 유도 글
등을 다운보팅 하라
는 것일 것이다.

그런 글들이 보인다면, 다운보팅 하면 된다.
그러나, 그런 글들은 많지 않다.


그래도 남아서 썩어나가는 다운보팅 파워는
자뻑 정의감에서 남의 글을 다운보팅 학살하는
컨텐츠 나찌나 인민재판 공산 죽창
다운보팅 학살자들을 다운보팅 하면 된다고 본다.

이것은 다운보팅 전쟁을 촉발할 것이지만,
다운보팅 학살자들의 나쁜짓을 통제할 방법은
이 취지에 공감하는 사람들이
그 다운보팅 학살자들을 다운보팅 하는 것이
불가피한 선택으로 보인다.

다운보팅해야할 다운보팅 학살자들의 목록을 공표해 나갈 것이다.

다운보팅을 권장하여,
스팀 투자자 및 스팀 사용자들의 감정을 학살하여

스팀 개발자들, 스팀 재단, 스팀잇 회사 관계자들,
다운보팅 풀 도입에 찬성한 스팀 증인들

목록은 갱신해 나갈 것이고,
일단 상위 30위 증인들 중에서 hf21 down-vote 를 지원하고 있는 29 명의 목록을 준다.

심심할 때, 무작위로 눌러서, 다운보팅의 맛을 보여주시라.

혹시 보복이 올 것이 두려운가?
자유와 언론의 자유는 그냥 얻어지지 않는다.

많은 피래미들이 벌떼처럼 다운보팅한다면,
고래 증인들도 대응 방법이 없을 것이고,
다운보팅 기능을 없애는 쪽으로 가게 될 것이다.

그래도 두려운가?
겁장이들은, 두려우면 빠지면 된다. ㅋㅋ

The Documentation is a huge benefit!

28.08.2019 17:23

yes if anyone deserves 130 SBD or 130 THOUSAND SBD for documentation its inertia. and even tho its a steempeak fronte nd error displayingteh numebr mroe than hes really getting, peopel shoudl eb remidned that ocumentationand visual aids educationa supliments to documentation can help a lot of peopel become steem dveelopers

if devel;opers coem heer from ethereum and see all this beauytiful documentation they will be mroe willing to join team steem. so much we can do especialy when steem is cheap enoughf or peopel to buy a lot of!

30.08.2019 17:52

Is this all good with the incrowd and misterdelegation dicksucking squad because they dont seem to like anything but people posting "good content" ... not using the actual power of it all ?
or is the word dick earning me a downvote now hate is free ?

anyway ...

ruby you say ?

much to my surprise it's still in the top 10 , but so is php, question is what is there to teach in php other than to use php-curl when it comes to condenser, lol ... using it from the unix/l00nix shell without installing additives however is a different thing but who would bother (but oddballs like myself)

curl -s --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method":"condenser_api.get_accounts", "params":[["goldmanmorgan"]], "id":1}' > @goldmanmorgan_jsondata
#curl --silent --data '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "get_state", "params": ["post"], "id": 40 }' >state
curl -s --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method":"condenser_api.get_dynamic_global_properties", "params":[], "id":1}' >state

C2=`curl -s --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method":"condenser_api.get_blog_entries", "params":["goldmanmorgan",0,1], "id":1}' | grep -Po '(?< -s --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method":"condenser_api.get_blog_entries", "params":["goldmanmorgan",0,1], "id":1}' | grep -Po  "method":"condenser_api.get_content_replies", "params":["goldmanmorgan",   $CURLURL

curl -s --data "$CURLURL" > data/lastpostreplies

i mean who would bother if you can just buy a €1500 machine or run your own node ...

i say if your documentation comes with templates provided i'm all up for it, specially python ... posting, commenting, not so much the info as a usable template i can adapt, i dont wanna waste time learning a new language and if i did it wouldnt be python but von neuman logic is just that and a template is easy to read and adapt (for me) to anything i want it to do, python probably more as its made for OCD-people who need everything structured lol (no offense holger-san hahah)

yea, sure, the sue facebook idea is sound like the idea but the practical fact of sueing a mastodont that can hold suits against the whole E.U. with the smallfry money combined seems far from practical.

Question remains, what happens "when the job is over" because development wont stop ... (and im the last person to tell you "you should just do it for the team for free, THEY get paid so if you do part of their job you should get paid too, i think the world lasts longer like that)
Is this a yearly thing ? or a six-month thing ? you'll have to follow up after doing it once ... or someone else will have to if i can find the vote-button ill vote on it, thanks

30.08.2019 23:07

I agree with @howo about having a bit more detail surrounding use of payment, but, I trust you and value your previous work. You definitely have my support for this proposal! :^)

31.08.2019 14:15

great. @ineria would I take korean translation for this proposals? I think that most of kr developer like this document updating news.

01.09.2019 15:04


04.09.2019 00:06

if anyone deserves to get extra SBD from steem to help developers work on steem its @inertia and honestly, it is NEVER enough to work on projects for steem especially documentation and that work is NOT anywhere NEAr completed. We could document SO much and we SHOULD! It may sound boring t some but its a sure fire way to add value, even if we have some redundancies. But honestly documentation , good documentation can take full time staff and that requires SBD and we could, inertia could, really use that if he got it

I Feel he could add this to include some supplemental educational material to aid the documentation, videos for youtube for all levels of developers (or those looking to become one) to better understand and grasp the possibilities of steem which goes over the heads of most people, even its biggest supporters who usually have to go through a long journey learning about steem. It attracts the intelligent and the compassionaite. But many users dont have the time to document everything they work on, but honestly steem didn't evenhave a wikipedia page for a long time, and even that should be using a STEEM based protocal shouldnt it? I mean wikipedia for steem should have been one of the earliest sort of dapps, but everipedia on eos took most of that cake away but we can bake another... steem can still become a massive hub for scientific research and the storing of data, synchronizing it, ability to record things to sidechains that cant be altered...

Anyway Im off topic but no one is even commenting heer or much ANYWHERE on steem anymore except for a few posts on top trending but the types of opportunist comments you find theer are terrible and from peopel you rarely want to even talk with. All the best of steem happens here in the nooks and crannies, on proposal sections only even visible to people on Steempeak... a front end that shoudl be mroe popular by by now but which needs SPS funding to make for its own advertisinga nd onbaording campaign

Oh that remind sme. Ive done the math and steemit inc alone had the SP to create enough accounts for 5 MILLIOn a year so at just 10% instead of 30, liek steemit inc, the rough estimate puts us at around 1.6 Million accounts a year made possible with the funds of 10% of the blockchain to stake SP and use it for FREE account creation , like an internal onbaording mechanism that can garuntee the funds to buy or create accounts for free, with faucets maintained full time by human Ai mix, funded by the SPS again, so theers no reason why we cant do this, and i see it happening soon enough

Steem PS is just beginning and NO other chain has had a proposal system this easy and open to the public.. bitshares was far too esoteric and dash was too expensive and also too complicated for most. As of yet, steempeak makes proposals EXTREMELy easy

We are on teh VERGE of something great

proposals will finally let steem get everything it always wanted or at least a lot of it

just the idea that 10% of SPS or 1% of inflation could be used to create at least around 160 THOUSAND FREE accounst a year is a great start, but if we PURCHASED the accounts at 3 steem each theer could be ... lets see
Supply: 324,392,497 STEEM (Worth $68,366,830 SBD) so at around 8% inflation , 5.4 Million USD worth of Steem this year printed, lets say 540 thousand or 10% is the SPS funds if steem price stays 16 cents.... , and just 50% of the proposal system funds or, $270K a year could pay for 570K new accounts a year lol a start...

of course we cant use ALL of it... for account creation or even half

but i predict a steem engine proposal can be launched to include a new self onbaordoing steem engien that uses steem invite to allow users to just pay to geta steem account loaded with a basket of popular tokens etc., we can give temliek gifts etc, steem nengine github si abot to geta LOT of new contributions.

"Dev Portal Documentation" sounds like a great idea.
I didn't even know about Steem Developer Portal.

I (as an amateur programmer) wonder
Will it be possible to adapt this documentation for offline usage (for API Documentation Browser

DevDocs combines multiple developer documentations in a clean and organized
web UI with instant search, offline support, mobile version, dark theme, keyboard shortcuts, and more.
