We felt that the EOS Tribe challenge was playing more into our team's strengths, which largely include design and full-stack web development.
What it does
EOS limits account creation as a matter of it's design (each account uses "RAM" in the distributed EOS virtual machine, and RAM isn't free). EOS Tribe wants to expand EOS adoption by making it easier to onboard people into the EOS ecosystem, by pre-funding accounts for people who want to sign up. In the event that there is no stake available to give someone a free account, though, they still want people to be able to pre-fund their own account.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
An incredible amount. We gained a basic understanding of Solidity and what it can do, how to connect Ruby on Rails to an externally-hosted database, some of us learned how to use Bootstrap, and got a good understand of the bash command line, git, and the commands these powerful tools offer. We also learned we... were a lot better than we thought we were.
What's next for EOS EasyAccount
Security, responsiveness, and recoverability! We don't want people to abuse EOS Tribe's generosity, we want them to be able to access it on any device, and we want them to be able to easily recover their information to the best of their ability.
