While it's been a little quiet from Deegram for a while, a lot of work has been done and a lot of progress has been made. We are continually improving and making the app ready for an open beta, and we are ready to share some of the updates with you.
A while ago we had an article about Deegram in Khrono. Khrono is an online paper owned by several universities in Norway, and cover politics, students and entrepreneurship. This article is mainly covering the legal war with Instagram LLC. and Facebook Inc.
Just recently, we were contacted by E24, one of, if not the largest business outlet in Norway with around 320.000 daily readers and around 150.000 followers between their Facebook and Twitter accounts. They wrote a nice article about Deegram and the team, featuring a picture from @steemfest 2 in Lisbon.
In Norway you pay an additional deposit price for all plastic bottles, which after consumption can be deposited back at a store to get the money back, each bottle at between 15 and 30 cents. When depositing bottles, you can choose to donate this to Red Cross or take the money back for yourself. If it's 20 or 30 cents, you might not really care about taking the deposit and choose to donate it away. This initiative has raised over $96 million USD in total, and $32 million have been given directly to Red Cross. Through market research, user feedback and inspiration from the Norwegian "bottle deposit lottery", we are happy to announce that you can now donate your earnings directly from Deegram. From the wallet view, you can now enter the donation section and have a look.
The projects we are including now are @schoolforsdg4 and @womenempowerment, initiatives from @azizbd. Please read up on the projects and all the great work he's doing!
In the long run, we aim to identify and verify charities within all categories of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG), so that your social media activity can help fund a project or organizations that you truly care about.
We are very open to suggestions to other charitable projects we can add as potential recipients of donations!
From the new bottom navigation bar you can now see the latest votes, comments and replies to your content ordered by the time of the notification. You will also see notifications for all incoming transfers to your account. Further, we plan to thumbnails and/or previews to the content that received the vote/comment/reply in a future update.
We will be performing further adjustments and tweaks on the current build of the app based on feedback from testers, while we in parallel work hard to work through the backlog of new features we wish to add. Some of the focus areas for the next few weeks are listed below.
That's it for now, thank you for following the project and for all the support we receive. We can't wait to bring you more news and new updates in the future, please don't hesitate to ask us any question you have!
Best regards, The Deegram team
Good work, lots accomplished by the looks of it.
I am looking forward to the completion of this dapp. Great news for the projects you are including now are @schoolforsdg4 and @womenempowerment, initiatives from @azizbd. I am been supporting these programs for some time now and this is great news for them. As you stated everyone should read up on these two projects. They have been growing but need as much support as they can get.
You need to put links where people can actually take a look at the dapp or to download it.
