Decentralized Discussion Board
# Decentralized Discussion Board
## Prize Bounty
$3,200 USD (paid in ETH).
Centralized industries hold control over their users and their data. Discussion boards are constantly created, users spend hours helping build the community with useful content and then suddenly disappear or you get banned without any prior notice.
At Arweave we want to break this barrier and help build the next web, the permaweb.
Create a fully decentralized approach to a discussion board using Arweave’s blockchain technology to store and host the platform.
1. Open-source code available over GitHub.
2. The discussion board needs to be built with web technologies without the use of a backend.
3. Login using Arweave wallets. No registration required.
4. Needs to have Categories. Sub-categories are optional.
5. Any user is able to see the history of an edited post (thanks to Arweave’s Permaweb features).
6. There is no admin/moderators. Every user can participate in voting down bad posts or rewarding good content and anyone can create a category or subcategory.
7. Like/thumb_up system. Users will be able to like/thumb_up others posts (not their own posts), when a vote happens, there’s a transaction submitted tipping 0.10 AR to the owner of that post if it’s a vote up and 0.10 AR sent to miners if it’s a vote down.
8. Post replies in threads are ordered by date and by like/thumb_up. Similar to how Reddit works.
9. If a post after counting all positive votes and negative votes have a total of negative votes the post should be shown as an inactive one (greyed out for example) and content should be hidden until the user clicks a button to show the content of that post/thread. If you have another approach to combat spam please let us know on Discord.
Every aspect of the app needs to be able to work without centralized services or external sources other than using Arweave’s ecosystem. For example, you can use [ArweaveID](https://arweave.net/fGUdNmXFmflBMGI2f9vD7KzsrAc1s1USQgQLgAVT0W0) to get usernames from addresses.
Remember to use Arweave's blockchain technology for your decentralized discussion board. From source code to deploying the platform.
Follow the steps in the goals and every extra feature and ideas are greatly welcomed.
There is **one** winner of $3,200 USD paid in ETH.
