We are a very young project (started Oct 18th, 2019), so we lack quite a few features. Read more about the project at our About page.
We'll publish and update our plans here.

Things listed here are not in any particular order.

  • Communities (main page has too many topics)

  • Languages preferences (main feed has too many languages that not everyone understands)

  • Ability to translate articles (possibly with revenue sharing)

  • Ability to send private (preferably e2e encrypted) messages

  • Mentions autocomplete

  • Ability to see who I follow and who follows me (Telesfor)

  • Sponsors embedding (SVG/iframe) (Rosco Kalis)
    + better "Become a sponsor" button

  • "Sticky" footer/left thingy with link to comments and shares?

  • Mentions notifications (in comment or in article)

  • Links to to-do items

  • (?) Clickable explanations (mark)

  • Wide code block

  • Consider BIP70 instead of ephemeral QR codes (stuck)

  • Ability to mute certain posters from the feed (btcfork)

  • A personal About Me page for each user profile, where you can also tip to that user (elrikpiro)

  • Bug: deleting image

  • Bug: copying images

  • Bug: italics in code blocks

  • CashID using QR codes and asking for nickname first on registration

  • Minor: Links hotkey Ctrl+K, Cmd+K (select)

  • Real-time balance updates

  • More / cut tag

  • Twitter embeds / incl. video

  • Sponsorship minor additions: editing of monthly amount, ability to export SVG, reminders about ending sponsorship, request to change the logo

  • Persistent one-time QR codes (prevent loss)

  • Premium parts of article visible for sponsors

  • Promote your articles via reddit/memo/etc.. (maybe: bounties for promotion)

  • Description, snippet editor

  • Better comment editor

  • Best article contest

  • Dark theme

  • Table of contents (in separate editor?) "next", "previous" link, for books, etc...

  • Ability to close "one-time" QR code (sorry, obvious, but not that easy)

  • minor: Save previous H1,2,3 "links" so that change of the text doesn't break old links

  • Stats page

  • Change e-mail, change password

  • Alter egos / pseudonyms switching

  • New address for each article? Though it's still analyzable

  • From imkeshav: Give a "Feedback" link on the top right corner, so ppl like me can give quick feedback

  • From imkeshav: Ability to tip from home/main page instead of having to open the article and do it
