I'm a member of SwissVite.org. We started our SBP at the beginning of the Testnet. I entered this project because I wanted to get involved with DPoS.
First of all, as a cryptocurrency, using VITE and sending transactions instantaneously without fees is a complete pleasure, once it's understood how the quota/pow system works. I don't think it's too hard to get, but as I never saw this somewhere else, it took some time to go with it.
The web wallet and the explorer are fluid and I love to see new things added once in a while.
Setting up the SBP was not too hard, check this tutorial from our friends at Snap Secure.
I would say that during the first weeks, the hardest was to go around with little documentation. Our first objective as an SBP was to attract voters, so to challenge the official nodes, we decided to distribute rewards as well. it took more time to find and understand which and how to use the different methods than to implement the coding part.
The big plus (other than on our logo) is that the team has always been there to help, and we finally managed to automate all the process of getting voters and distributing rewards, learning in the meantime how to work with transactions and APIs, giving us a lot of ideas for the future
Finally, I love how the team is always active and proposing incentives for developing the community or the infrastructure network.
I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the roadmap!
