We all love Memes but there isn’t really a place where you can save the memes and make them available for everyone. Furthermore meme pages like imgflip work but their design isn’t up to date anymore. Furthermore we need more appreciation for the meme creators. Thorugh a Keplr integration it will be easy to tip creators for their work. And I also plan to give creators further insights in their reach through for example traffic statistics. Anonymous of course.
Run a decentralized Memes Platform to connect meme creators and their audience. The memes are stored in the ipfs protocol with gateways running on akash. Backups are made through storj. The website itself acts as gateway for the memes which are stored on ipfs and can be accessed through every other ipfs gateway (ex. cloudflare or pinata). To store the data persistently I will probbably use Filecoin.
Memes are awesome to reach people and grow an audience. By reaching many different people through the platform it can raise the awareness for akash and decentralization.
The biggest part will be hosting costs, as the project is built from several parts:
- 3 Ipfs Gateways (EU,US,Asia)
- Backend API
- Storj backups
- possibly Elasticsearch (for a more performant search)
It depends mainly on how the akash prices (fiat as well as deployments) develop since all these services are to run in akash.
I plan to get the first prod version in 1-2 weeks. It will also include a Browser based Meme Creator.
The next stage after will then depend on the user feedback
If someone wants to support me I look forward to the cooperation
Depending on the news situation every 2 weeks or monthly through reports (forum/twitter)
