[SBP Proposal] Snap Secure - Dec 24, 2018 - Past, Present and Future
Hi everyone! Just want to introduce myself.
I'm plasmo from Snap Secure (the first ever SBP from the community) and we're based down under in Australia.
Our name Snap Secure is actually derived from Snapshot chain, the base chain helping to secure Vite's DAG.
Today we just want to let everyone know what we're really all about.
WHAT WE'VE DONE
We've designed and created a website made from the ground up to help promote Vite. We currently have heaps of unique users visiting daily.
- Website: snapsecure.network
A Twitter to keep our followers up to date on Snap Secure articles/guides/competitions or anything we're doing.
- Twitter: twitter.com/snap_secure
We would like to see more people use Vite but there are some things that we think are just too complicated for many.
That is the reason we've written up articles/tutorials on how to do advanced stuff such as: running a SBP node or a full node.
- SBP Guide: https://snapsecure.network/beginners-guide-to-installing-and-operating-a-vite-sbp
- Full Node Guide: https://snapsecure.network/run-a-full-node-today-and-earn-vite-rewards-daily
Plenty of users/SBPs have actually came to us to ask for further assistance/help in setting up their full node or SBP node (after reading our guide) and we're always happy to help out. Feel free to contact us any time.
We've also created the first ever community competition to help promote usage of the official Vite forums.
We've also helped the Vite dev team out via:
- Github by writing official installation steps for Windows
- Spotting mistakes/bugs (missing steps on the official Medium Vite ERC20 conversion guide, incorrect Windows IPC command on the Vite Wiki, incorrect DashboardTargetURL on Gvite 1.0.4, incorrect RewardAddr on Gvite 1.0.4 etc)
- Improvements to Gvite such as NTP time check/stats (which got implemented on version 1.0.3)
- Gvite exit upon config error (recently implemented)
- Return account block hash for CreateTxWithPassphrase (recently implemented)
We are active on Telegram/Discord and do like to provide knowledge/assistance in anything Vite related (either in the public channels or via private/direct message).
WHAT WE'RE CURRENTLY WORKING ON
Right now we're developing a public Vite coin faucet via PHP/JSON-RPC (to help further increase users/adoption). If successful, we will market this to attract more new users to Vite.
You may test it out at: https://snapsecure.network/faucet
and you can read more about it at: https://forum.vite.net/topic/133/snap-secure-is-developing-a-coin-faucet
We're also brain storming fun competitions/ideas on how to get users involved more with Vite.
WHAT WE'RE DOING IN THE FUTURE
Snap Secure was born from Vite and we do believe in Vite long term. We're here to stay and help promote Vite adoption/usage and growth.
We plan to write more guides in the future such as how to use the Vite DEX, Vite cross chains or anything we think can help users further understand Vite.
We plan to do more competitions to help promote Vite and get the community more involved.
Our long term goal is to launch a casino on the Vite platform utilising Solidity++.

I think a php Sdk would be good for vite

Hi, it would help if you put such messages as an announcement in the Discord channel.

@plasmo what about a telegram group for your voters and community?
@Vanderkum Vite is not that big of a community and I feel that by creating more channels/servers/forums, the community will not be as close/united. If anyone needs us, we're always on the official Vite Discord server.
@plasmo yeah, that's true, you've got a point there. Even though the official telegram for vite 40k members, I think we've got like 20k effective accounts there. I Will check out snap secure
@Vanderkum I don't like the disorganized manner in which TG channels function. I pretty much prefer Discord.
Here's an invite link to the Vite Discord channel if anyone's interested https://discord.gg/kXap6fZ
@falconite I'm still getting acquainted with discord, but apart from the spamming and scams in telegram, I find it pretty handy and cool

I think just a Discord is fine. Maybe more competitions and initiatives involving community can be included. Your guides for starting full nodes/SBPs are great. As always, nice job plasmo.

Thanks for all you do Plasmo and the SnapSecure team! You are all a great asset to the Vite community. I wouldn’t have been able to set up my full node without your (Plasmo specifically) help. It’s much appreciated!
@Vanderkum There can be scammers and spammers in Discord too, be careful
@falconite I'll make sure to be extra careful there
@Vanderkum yup, be vigilant
