It has been a month since the NEM HUB Soft Launch on June 12th, 2020. We thank you for your efforts and are amazed by the contributions and ideas presented. There is a good source of talent simmering under the surface. We have only just begun.
We are further pleased to announce that the NEM social media impression count has been 10xed. Every piece the community adds to the HUB will improve NEM media and community and will benefit the transition to Symbol planned for the end of the year. We encountered challenges but were able to adapt and modify. The localization and translation of the platform UI & terminology cost us considerable time but was successfully completed as scheduled on July 1st.
The NEM HUB expands in new foreign communities. Understanding the HUB means recognising that there is a natural spillover that occurs automatically. However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t do everything to support these new community initiatives.
New Work and Action Groups planned as of next week:
Brazil, Spain, the Philippines, Turkey, Indonesia
These efforts will be complemented by an influencer and PR campaign that aims at supporting Symbol and the HUB. These measures are set, planned and will come into effect by the start of next week.
As of July 15th, 2020, NEM HUB has opened its doors to 869 users with 410 weekly active users from 46 different countries. The biggest foreign groups being Japan, followed by Ukraine, Russia, Indonesia & the Philippines. Active community language groups include Japanese, Russian, Indonesian, Turkish, Italian, and German. Upcoming localizations include Spanish and German.
438 HUB users are verified token holders who staked over 111,798,574 XEMs (5.18 million USD) with 19 staking Supernodes. NEM HUB users have submitted 1,018 submissions to 33 team tasks, and they generated 3,030 activity submissions with 50,609 upvotes and -538 downvotes on the Community Board. In total, the HUB has rewarded users with 336,646 NEM points and 63.984 Reputations. 583 users connected their Twitter accounts with the HUB that generated 2,352 tweets, 3,377 retweets, 2,590,905 impressions, 37,057 engagements, and 28,035 likes. 765 users connected their Telegram account with the HUB that generated 1306 conversation messages in the main Telegram group. The NEM HUB Medium, a community blog of NEM, published 31 articles in more than 6 languages that generated over 1,800 reads (leading Hub article by reads).
Currently, the ranking board is led by Japanese and Russian users. Tresto being the most influential user with 21.545 Influences and 4.575 Reputations.
NEM HUB Japan Logo Design Task:
After receiving 18 valid contributions who are all winners in their own right we had to nail it down to the top 3. The current leaders are:
Due to a newly implemented feature on NEM HUB to ease the voting process over tasks, all activities submitted to this task were indicated as published on C-board as of 14th of July. This feature was implemented after the due date of the task (10th of July). This has caused a problem to activities submitted to the task before the feature being implemented. For example, activities submitted to the task in June, which already received votes, appeared on the C-board. All activities were submitted & approved before/on the 10th of July. However, due to the newly implemented feature to avoid logical issues, all submitted activities appeared as published on the 14th of July. There were actually 5 days for voting before the voting closed on the General Launch date.
To eliminate the confusion and to be fair to users who are new, we have opened the voting for the logo design task for another week.
After receiving and processing requests and suggestions from the NEM community, NEM HUB has implemented a Telegram group to act as the HUB Support for handling users’ requests in real-time. Addressing suggestions, questions, and issues regarding the HUB. During the Soft Launch, the NEM HUB enabled a few new features, such as referral programs and unlocking the lease of reputation. Effectively allowing users to ease the transition for seasoned NEM contributors and social media veterans. These features are specifically designed for influential users that allow them to bring more valuable and talented people to the platform. Under the referral program, 522 users onboarded NEM HUB via 40 different referral links that generated 18,283 NEM points. Influential HUB users have already leased 7.320 Reputations to 36 talented users.
During the time of the Soft Launch a little more than a month ago, NEM HUB had completed 8 Workdrops that rewarded 143,673 XEMs to the platform users (6,418 USD). This happened within the scope of testing the platform. With the HUB scaling, rewards will gradually increase and given NEM’s vast history of different communities, the sky’s the limit. The next level being a ramp up to $10,000, not including specifically designed tasks and individual bonus drops.
Bonus drops are rewards supporting NEM Community initiatives such as ( 1 ) node onboarding, ( 2 ) the NEM writers guild, ( 3 ) the NEM marketplace, ( 4 ) NEM talent scout and ( 5 ) biz dev outreach.
Technical Update Roadmap NEM HUB:
A ) Swipe function on diff communities/language activities, i.e. UI & Community Board update, UI change so users can identify, upvote and submit much faster in their respective language and in the NEM HUB interest groups.
B ) Building of an extended admin function, in essence an accounting tool, allowing each community layer to assign rewards. Giving groups the possibility of governing within the limits of their own set budget.
Once again, thank you. You have our heartfelt gratitude and we are excited to reach the next milestone together. You will receive an update on further steps next week. Stay tuned.
