Hello all! We are excited to introduce the Hive community to its newest community, Hivelist! The Hivelist community is a classifieds community that gives Hivers a place to post items for sale, post jobs and gigs, services available, even if you want to post personal ads, and more! Our goal is to be the Craigslist for the Hive blockchain and Web 3.0.
Our front end site, Hivelist.io, is currently under constant construction at the moment so things may occasionally change. The menus will link you to the @hivelist profile, the Hivelist Classifieds Community, and also a link to the Join Hive page in hive.io. The site is built on WordPress and will be the place that we create our featured posts and such and will be linking the posts to the Hive blockchain using the @steempress WordPress plugin.
We are excited to see the community grow and flourish in incredible ways since the fork and wanted to be apart of it in a different kind of way. Even on the old chain, we were looking to build a type of marketplace, and this seems to be the best starting avenue.
Anyway, just a bit about the post tags we will be looking for and trying to build the community around:
Type of items for sale, in a one word tag of course…
services and type of service
You get the idea…
We would also like you to tag the location you are in as well! If you are in the US, you can tag your state. Outside the US, you can use your country and city, etc.
Using these kinds of tags will help the community become stronger and give better search terms for posts and such.
The @hivelist profile will be posting articles featuring different community posts as well as offering reposting services as well as front page and pinned post options down the road if you want your product, service, or ad on the front page of the website. These will be paid services to help offset some of the costs of running the site and community. The profile will also be building its HP stake to help build the community by upvotes and curation.
Our plan to start is to get on the @dlease market and start leasing as much HP as we can afford right now to get started but will also be looking for helpful community members that might want to delegate some HP to help support. We are working out the details on that and how we can get up the curation trails and such to benefit delegators.
In the future we plan on opening a full out multi vendor market place, think eBay or Etsy, on the Hivelist.io website that everything will be priced and sold using Hive and HBD. Apart of this will be using the open source code from the WooCommerce Steem WordPress plugin and changing it up to work with Hive. At least that is a plan, figuring it out with rusty code skills is another story, haha. That’s why we have a team! What better way to use a currency than in a market place right? Seems logical…
We are a work in progress so please be patient as we build. In the meantime, feel free to start using the Hivelist classifieds community!
Hope to see you on the list!
