Stish.io has launched numerous projects some have been successful and some have just simply failed to amount to anything. One of the monsterous failures was for sure the crypto Stores. We really thought we could build the next Ebay or Amazon type store that allowed users to buy and sell using various crypto currencies. We built it but no one ever used it. We spent thousands to develop it and it flopped. We had the simple blogging platform that was clean and familiar yet simplistic in the early days. People used it and received Stish crypto for creating valubale content on the platform. There is a lot of competition in the space and Medium dominates for sure. We worked on the Facebook,Twitter style social portal and loved it. Users loved it but we never could monetize it and spent a forutune attempting to get people to adipt using it. We failed miserably at that attempt.
We can talk about all of the failures we have had over the last few years and sulk about them or we can look to our successes and strengths and try to solve a real problem. With our expertise in crypto and blogging we can certainly offer users a viable crypto based service!
One option we have looked at in the past and are going to launch in the coming months is allowing users to TimeStamp their blog posts on a blockchain to show proof of ownership of the content. Users would be allowed to connect their metamask or favorite webwallet to cover the nominal transaction fee to forever declare their rightful authorship of original content. Of course users would not have to do this but but verfied content is likely the future of blogging.
We will look to unveil this feature by the end of 2020 and welcome back Full post blogging to all users. We sunset the microblogging platform for now until we redesign and relaunch a group based content micro blogging sharing platform… What I envision for micro blogging in the future is group based content streams. There will not be a global wall or feed page but users will select the groups they wish to be a part of and follow the content from those groups… Similarly to channels on youtube or news apps. Our new way to do all of this will be extremely fast and very mobile ready. Technology is advancing and so is Stish.io
We look to shave costs while trying to monetize the platform for growth. Without revenue we cannot succeed and without users we can not grow. We need a healthy combination of interaction and lower the churn rates. We need a platform that is simple to navigate and easy to onboard. We made huge advances over the years but still never made it over the major hills. Funding has been a challenge and as we go into base mode for survival we look to harness our strengths and turn out a platform worthy of your sharing and growth and acceptance.
Thank you all for the support over the years and may you all be blessed as we endeavor to achieve greatness within a crazy world. Trade that Stish and help us grow. Buy some Stish and help us grow! When the platform grows and Stish trading grows we all win!
