Thanks for testing guys, glad to see it's working smoothly!

An early demo of the cryptofresh Post feature, and a call for testers:

https://cryptofresh.com/posts

After logging in with your BitShares account, and can write posts directly on the blockchain.
New posts will appear on the page as they come in, creating a realtime chat experience.

Each account starts out with 100 test credits. Posts consume 5 credits (or more, depending on post length). Tips consume 5 test credits. This is to prevent spam and also a fun experiment. I am working towards a more convenient model but this allows us to start testing right away.

There are 3 main features in play:
1) Logging in
2) Posting
3) Tipping

Replying is not yet functional (but mostly implemented in the backend). Feedback welcome & let me know if anything breaks! :D

nice!

i got confused in the beginning, because i thought you want my BTS password. i know most of customers are stupid, so maybe you should explicid state "don't use your Bitshares account password"

Ah, this is a good point, I changed it to say "Set your Cryptofresh password", hope that helps clear it up!

I don't see it on the worker's tab. Can't vote for it.
Go back and forth between tabs and you'll see it.

Edit: but you can't vote right now anyway due to the extensions bug..

will release the block explorer as open-source under MIT license when this worker has been funded in full.
I hope your work will be transparent from the beginning.
Releasing it when it is fully funded is not reasonable.
If you got voted out at half way shareholders must have always access to your work.
You are already using the work, have you been to the cryptofresh site?? This is the problem with people. If you do the work for free, people expect to you keep working for free. If you ask for money, they ignore all the work you have already done.
Maybe you have to clean your glasses because I didn`t wrote nor think anything you seem to believe to read between the lines!

Thanks guys for the support, it means a lot!

@bytemaster No, not specifically anyway.. i'm resigning the witness either way to devote my full attention to upcoming projects.

@btswolf This is not a simple matter. It's a series of tradeoffs.. in the interest of keeping the daily pay as low as possible, I had to push out the release. The ideas within Cryptofresh are more valuable than the code itself, and also I don't think it's reasonable to expect months of work plus all the code for free. Keep in mind that after only 3 months of pay, I will be releasing 6 months-worth of work. I will be cleaning/refactoring the code before releasing the whole package. The refactoring effort will also result in a new repository (the core API layer I described in the post) that I plan to release earlier.
If anyone needs help with their Ruby/Rails app I would be more than happy to assist.

You have my support!  Your block explorer has been an invaluable resource to me and everyone else.

I hope you aren't resigning your witness position because of this worker.
