          Ureka.org - The Latest Steem dApp - Every Avalanche Begins With A Single Snowflake!
          I am pleased to announce that the foundation level of features integration of Steem at www.ureka.org is now live. Ureka users can crosspost to the Steem blockchain, comment, vote and earn rewards for their content on Ureka. There are some novel aspects to the way Steem works on Ureka since it has a pre-existing database and membership who can opt-in to use Steem - Ureka is not a purely Steem powered site.I have some exciting ideas for new features and some that I think are unique for any site on the Steem eco-system. Stay tuned for more soon :)#ureka #steem #technology

              okay

              i am doing cramped and monopolistic greyhound this week.

              once that minor ordeal is done, though, i think my brain will kick in

              and i will settle down at steem.   this post definitely aided my understanding.

                I'm commenting from https://www.ureka.org: the editor it's really cool!
                Just as there is support to the Special characters, I would appreciate the support of emoticons: would you like to add it?


                Well done, @ura-soul... ureka to the moon!

                  Integration of Steem Into Ureka.org Is Going Well :)

                  I have been really hard at work for the last few weeks, integrating the Steem blockchain into the social network I run called Ureka.org: Earth Heart Community. I now have a functional Steem Dapp running over here - with ability to post to Steem, reply and vote on posts/comments. :)

                  Since Ureka is it's own social network, complete with groups and numerous other features - it stands to become a powerful Steem site once this integration process is completed. I still have a way to go - but the foundation is in place. At this point I can describe Ureka as a combination of: Facebook, Pinterest, Steem & Wikipedia in one! I may even add video features in a similar way to DTube at some point too.

                  I have deliberately waited before carrying out this work so that I could learn more about Steem and cryptocurrency in general, plus so that Steem's community features and SMTs are nearer to launch. I am not clear on when these new Steem features will be launched, but I am deliberately leaving the design of the integration of Steem as open as possible, so as to make any changes that come to Steem in the future as easy as possible to handle when the time comes.

                  As yet, there's no overview video or FAQ for Steem on Ureka, those will come soon. For now, if you'd like to drop in and say hello, you are welcome. You just need to create an account as you would on other social sites and then authorise your Steem account via SteemConnect so that you can crosspost and vote to Steem. Steem Keychain support is coming soon.

                  Since Ureka has it's own community and database, posts are saved to Ureka's server, but if you elect to crosspost them to Steem, then that thread/blog/thought becomes synced to Steem and Steem's data takes priority. It is also possible to unsync a thread if you want to. No beneficiary charges are set through Ureka currently, so it's free to use. I'm really looking for some feedback and testing currently. No money moves through Ureka whatsoever, all Ureka has access to is an authorisation token via Steemconnect to allow posting and voting. You can cancel that authorisation at any time in Ureka or via SteemConnect directly.

                  I'm looking forward to getting some useful feedback. Let me know your thoughts..

                  Wishing you well,

                  Ura soul

                    As part of the process of integrating Steem features into ureka, I have had to retire the 'discussions' part of the site. They were not really needed anyway as the 'thoughts' section of the site contains all of the features that discussions contain except the 'open/closed' status (which no-one uses). This was necessary for technical reasons as the work needed to get discussions working with the new commenting system was way more than the discussions section is worth!

                    All discussions have been automatically converted into 'thoughts' and should be accessible in your list of thoughts. Let me know if you have any problems.

                    Wishing you well,

                      Discord is just a method of communicating for groups online - it's a smoother experience than Slack, from what I have seen.

                        i heard that people are abandoning Slack for Discord...

                         

                        I wonder what it all means,

                        or if anyone really understands...

                            The Blockchain and IOT Convergence The Blockchain and IOT Convergence by - Neeraj Benjamin on - January 14, 2019 Internet of Things (IoT) has been making waves and fascinating the technology circles for some time. Creating a secure ecosystem of the IoT architecture has been an issue of the technology architects. Converging the blockchain technology with IoT can solve these issues is another which is being brainstormed.   We shall start our discussion by first understanding the basic building blocks of IoT infrastructure and its limitations. Then we shall discuss the blockchain technology in brief. We shall then study the feasibility of convergence of IoT and the blockchain technology.   IoT Basics:   Any IoT architecture can be represented by four basic building blocks: Things: These are the uniquely defined nodes or primary sensors to communicate without human interaction using various connectivity methods. Gateways: These are the intermediary channels between “Things” and the cloud to provide connectivity, security and manageability. Network Infrastructure: This comprises of the routers, aggregators, gateways, repeaters and other devices that control and secure the data flow. Cloud Infrastructure: The cloud infrastructure is the pool of virtualized servers and storage devices, networked together with computing and analytical capabilities.   Like any new deployment, there are certain challenges in IoT...

                              Adding text, video and audio chat to Ureka has been a goal for some time. Having experimented with some software solutions it was found that none of the free ones that were tested were up to a level of reliability that we need here. However, in recent years an alternative option has become very popular among online communities such as gamers and also for users of the Steem eco-system - Discord! Discord has proven to be reliable on all platforms, including mobile devices and many people already have accounts there. It is both a great way to communicate and also to unite communities and network. For these reasons I have created a Discord server for Ureka.org.   Access the Ureka Discord space via the following invitation link: https://discord.gg/dNXb2cF   You can access Discord by installing the standalone desktop app on your computer or via the mobile app that is freely available in all app stores or from a normal web browser. The audio and video are great quality and rarely have any issues. You can also chat in realtime with text there and share memes and files etc. Not only does this provide a great chat solution for Ureka, but it is free for us to use and has zero maintenance. I am looking into ways of automating a connection between Ureka and Discord so that each group on Ureka automatically gets it's own space in Discord and the Ureka site is generally integrated there in useful ways. Privacy Please note that Discord is not operated by Ureka's...
