Bring all your GitHub friends to Utopian with our new STEEM account creation module!
Growing and rewarding the Open Source community on the STEEM blockchain was, is, and will continue to be the Utopian vision. The main hurdle on our way to realizing this vision was a lack of account creation system to allow for immediate contributor access to Utopian services. Having to wait for an account on Steemit, or purchasing one for immediate use was detering many Open Source projects and contributors from joining the community.
Today, we are changing that.
We are proud to present to you the Utopian STEEM registration module to make STEEM account creation seamless and FREE for GitHub users.
PLEASE NOTE: This service is intended only for the creation of new STEEM accounts for GitHub users who do not currently have an active STEEM account. Accounts accidentally created by existing account-holders on the blockchain will be disabled through undelegation in regularly performed audits.
Since many existing STEEM users are expressing their will in testing the new Utopian signup module, the actual account creation has been temporarily moved to the testnet. You can now test it freely! We will resume creation in the main net in the next few hours.
The Utopian Signup module allows Open Source contributors to instantly create a STEEM account by syncing their GitHub account with Utopian and confirming account ownership.
Secure, Fast, Reliable
The Utopian signup system uses a unique algorithm to verify past social data on GitHub and verifies user authenticity.
5000 STEEM for Newcomers
We’ve powered up 5000 STEEM allocated to account creation with @utopian.signup . As demand rises, we will be powering up additional STEEM as necessary.
If past activity data on GitHub allows for instant verification, the user will only be asked to enter an email address to get a free STEEM account instantly.
Personal data, like the email address, is fully encrypted and only processed for verification purposes.
If the past activity data on GitHub isn’t enough to verify the authenticity of the user, SMS verification will be requested in addition to email verification. The phone number provided for verification is encrypted.
A verification code will be sent to the number entered and used to continue the registration process.
Once the user has verified either the email and/or the phone number a password will be presented on screen. The password is generated client-side and destroyed immediately after the account creation for maximal security, which also means it’s not recoverable.
The user will be requested to save the password locally in a TXT file before being able to proceed.
The user can now choose the preferred STEEM username and finalise the account creation.
We hope that with the launch of the Utopian Signup module, we will be able to accelerate the growth of both Utopian and STEEM, while providing the best user experience possible.
With this tool, we will be able to launch advertising campaigns and community initiatives to attract a mass of Open Source project owners, contributors and investors to Utopian and STEEM. To us, this is a great leap forward that will have a profound impact on creating the STEEM-Based Open Source economy that is our vision.
