Patrik Laurell - Thankful
Blog post #1
Describe the idea!
Thankful is an open-source browser plugin which enables you to keep track of the content you consume and give the creators of that content your direct support in the form of cryptocurrency. We (Superuser Labs) participated in Leapfrogs last year, so this year we’re going to, more or less, pick up where we left off.
Who are you?
I am a electronic engineering student with a long standing interest in programming. I have professional experience as a software developer, and last semester I started working on my masters thesis in machine learning. Thankful is my first startup experience and I have been part of the Thankful team since the start last summer.
What will you do during these three months? How will you spend the time?
We’re going to be putting the finishing touches on our MVP and from there, keep on adding features and improving the product. Beyond the product itself, we want to place a greater emphasis on establishing cohesive design and branding for Thankful, as well as increasing our marketing efforts in order to expand our user base and increase adoption rate.
What do you expect to achieve during Leapfrogs?
We expect to arrive at a product that we are proud of and we feel is user ready. We’re hoping that with better design, smoother user experience and wider platform integration that we’ve produced something that people will want to use to easily support their favorite content creators.
