Pin Save - Decentralized Pinterest

Project Description

Pin Save is a decentralized image sharing and content aggregation platform where users can not only control the content, but also the platform itself.

Problem

Monolithic online apps maintain control of user material, hindering the adoption of decentralized technologies.

A user might utilize OpenSea to publish the material, however there are considerable obstacles:

  • Only a small percentage of collections make it to the homepage.

  • Confidence and web3 expertise are required for the content publication procedure.

  • Content feedback and engagement indicators are primarily reflected in price fluctuations.

Solution

Our team advocates implementation of a decentralized image sharing and content aggregation platform where users can not only control the content, but also the platform itself.

The combination of decentralized storage, smart contracts and creator ownership of intellectual property creates new dynamics between content creators and forms new more meaningful communities.

Pin Save 4 key features:

Value

We have implemented a prototype both on NEAR VM with Rust and EVM version on Polygon.

One of our developers has completed developers program with SkyNet decentralized storage provider. Currently we are in the grant process with Filecoin. As a result, we believe we possess a competitive advantage in providing our user the best tailored decentralized storage experience.

The combination of decentralized storage, smart contracts and creator ownership of intellectual property creates new dynamics between content creators and forms new more meaningful communities.

Pin Save assists in lowering the threshold for users to enter the web3 space, provides incentives to share content and effectively improves the adoption of the decentralized technology.

Relevant Experience

We have already implemented a very first prototype both on NEAR VM with Rust during Filecoin and Encode Accelerator. We have further pivoted to the EVM version on Polygon https://evm.pinsave.app/ , which we currently develop as part of the Filecoin grant program.

As a team we have completed Gitcoin bounty project for Uniswap: GitHub - dspytdao/dspytai: First Uniswap centered Dapp that utilizes on-chain data to model potential price fluctuations in real-time., Algorand: https://developer.algorand.org/solutions/artificial-intelligence-on-algorand/ and won 3rd prize for DeFi Algorand Encode track: Encode x Algorand Hackathon: Prizewinners and Summary | by Klara Orban | Encode Club | Medium building complex smart contracts.

Funding

We are requesting for a $45,000 USD grant from the Dora Grant DAO to accelerate the development and deployment of Pin Save on EVM mainnet.

Milestone 1: $15,000

So far we have made significant progress with the development of Pin Save smart contracts, back end and front end application. In particular, we are proud to have implemented Next Js framework, lightweight JavaScript framework to create for static and server‑rendered applications.

However, there are major development and marketing expenses needed to ensure a more functional, fast, well-known and reliable application.

We estimate to complete this milestone by January 2023. These funds will be deployed towards:

  • Decreasing the loading speed of the decentralized posts, implementing infinite scrolling.
  • Gamifying the posting experience and testing token economics.
  • Improving documentation & video tutorials, targeted at open-source contributors and Pin Save users.

Milestone 2 – $30,000

Our second milestone targets Pin Save for deployment on mainnet and further improving user experience by providing personalized experience. We expect this milestone to be completed by March 2023.

  • Conduct a Smart contract code audit - $10,000
  • Build decentralized recommendation engine pipeline - $5,000
  • Machine Learning Model training – $5,000
  • Conduct competitions to post on Pin Save for the best decentralized posts – $4,000
  • Technical Writing – improved documentation, tutorials – $2,000.
  • Content Marketing: developer support, community management, sponsored posts – $4,000.
