We’re OpenSeed and if you’re not familiar with us, we published a Steem.DAO proposal before heading into the holiday season along with two companion pieces written by @andrarchy and @bflanagin. You can view @andrarchy’s piece here, and @bflanagin’s piece here.
Despite the holiday season, we’ve still managed to accomplish some important objectives that we want to bring to the attention of anyone (but especially developers) who are interested in OpenSeed.
The first announcement is that all of OpenSeed’s branches are now public on github. This will give application developers an opportunity to learn more about how OpenSeed works and give valuable feedback on how it can serve their needs better, while putting us one step closer to enabling 3rd party developers to contribute to OpenSeed.
Our #1 priority is to deliver an open source platform to Steem developers that provides them with the valuable off-chain solutions they need to take their applications to the next level. That’s why getting the code into a shareable state and making it public on github is an important milestone for us.
The second announcement is that we have made significant updates to the github wikis. There are now fairly detailed wikis which explain:
- How to create off-chain accounts on OpenSeed
- How OpenSeed’s p2p encrypted chat features work
- How OpenSeed can be used to retrieve data from the Steem blockchain
- And more!
More to Come!
A lot of progress is being made both on OpenSeed, and the application we announced in our proposal; OpenLink. We look forward to sharing that progress with you in future posts, so be sure to follow @openseed, join our community, and of course, if you have not yet voted on our proposal, please do!
