CityCoins Builder Showcase: February 17, 2022
February 17th's Builder's Call showcased the following CityCoiner projects:
- Syvita Mining Pool — @MattySTX, @BowTiedMooneeb
- Frens — Drew Falkman
- CityCoins Marketplace Plugin — James of web3devs.com
Following the success (and overwhelming demand to attend) of our previous Builder’s Showcase, we expanded our capacity for community members to attend. We also made sure the latest Builder’s Call was recorded—watch it here.
Hosted by Andre Serrano (CityCoins Community Lead), here’s a recap of highlights from featured projects.
Syvita Mining Pool
“Syvita is how most people start mining CityCoins.” —Andre Serrano
- FATSTX, a tool for tracking your CityCoins holdings across wallets and to help you with things like taxes
- wenblock, a tool to track variable block times so miners know when relevant things are happening on the STX blockchain
“We imagine a full suite of tools you use to manage your CityCoins.” —@BowTiedMooneeb
Syvita is currently rebranding their project to help them capture the opportunity presented by the CityCoins ecosystem.
“We believe this is a long-term opportunity and long-term market. This could be a 10-20 trillion-dollar market.” —@BowTiedMooneeb
“A key part of engaging a community is a reward and reputation mechanism.” —Drew Falkman
Stacks Entrepreneur-in-Residence and founder Drew Falkman shared Frens, a way to create and grow Web3 communities. Frens is being developed as a reward-and-reputation system for communities and the members who make them matter.
“I got started with DAOs. I built an app for DAOs in 2017… and that’s when my mind was blown by this whole thing…. These structures offer unlimited possibilities for how we build things.” —Drew Falkman
Drew previously developed Miami Voice, a MiamiCoin-powered proposal and voting app, and one of the first community-created projects developed using MIA.
CityCoins Marketplace Plugin
“Create a marketplace where you purchase things with CityCoins.” —James
The project doesn’t re-imagine user buying habits. Instead, James and his team utilize web2.0 tech to enable Web3 uses, like transacting MIA for goods. In his demo, James showcased how MIA-to-USD conversion are up-to-date throughout the checkout process.
“We’re going to open source this thing so any city can start their own marketplace… If you wanted to launch a marketplace in Philly, New York, whatever—you can quickly adapt it.” —James
