Thanks for the reply, we will release updated video’s showcasing how Souq can be used asap.
I would like to start by stating that Souq is meant to be an open platform where users can receive funds relative to the content they create with a diverse yet modular set of components that can facilitate a large range of expression for user funding needs, and by proxy, the largest possible set of use cases.
Before we dive into some details I would also like to point out that once the
Projects components go live, aside from empowering more use cases, the user experience will become much more intuitive. (and continue to become more intuitive as all the components mature).
So kin the mean time, I’ll just provide a couple quick example use cases.
1st is an example how someone could use the app in its current live build.
2nd is an example of how someone could use the app once its upcoming build goes live.
Event example (with current build):
Lets say you are needing to get the word out about a upcoming fund raiser for the local school next month. With Souq you could create some content that could receive funds before the fund raiser started, while also empowering the discovery and coordination of time and location for the
Create a Marker (for its location based search, perhaps at the School)
Create some Tags. (for its keyword search)
Create a Image, w/ some Tags as properties. (pic could be perhaps event Flyer?)
Create a Event w/ Date & Time of Event Fund Raiser, w/ a Marker & Tags & Images as properties.
Task example (with upcoming build):
Lets say you have the ambition to fill in a pesky local Pothole that has been neglected for far to long.
With Souq you could create content that can be used for the specific stated objective and Goal of a
Marker (for its location search, at the location of the pothole)
Tag(s). (for its keyword search)
Image(s), w/ a
Tags as properties. (for its before & after pics)
Task w/ a Goal, w/ a Due Date, w/ a
Images as properties.(w/ before & after pics that prove the work was completed)
Some important properties of Souq that might not be obvious at first glance.
If you Add a user as
Contact, and that users Blockstack Identity has a BTC proof defined. Then with the in app Souq Wallet you can Send BTC by Name. (Adding & Favoring Contacts will also serve as the means of “following” someone, once the Feed component is ready to go live too)
Favorite other peoples public non archived content, you are not just bookmarking the content for easier review later, but you enabling yourself to use said content as properties in the content you create.
When you log in for the first time, your Dashboard Map has a default epicenter near Portland Oregon, if you want to change the default epicenter location to be where you prefer, simply change it by clicking your Avatar near the top right then going to Settings.
When creating content, its discovery(ability to be found in search) is based on key words (ergo needs Tags), and or based on relative Proximity(ergo needs Marker) and or based on a aggregate Feed of the content created by Contacts, and or based on direct discovery when viewing content on Profile pages.
Any and all questions or feedback is welcome.
