Why cant saving be rewarding? was the question we asked ourselves. Every other other habit has instant gratification so why isn't saving and investing money for the future.
What it does
Safve helps users to track your spending and if you save more money than last week you are rewarded with Stonkoin which can be redeemed for cash or crypto. It also teaches user about personal finance and frugal living and rewards them too.
How we built it
We used Reactjs to make the website and firebase to store the data.
Challenges we ran into
It was the first time we used react to make a website this large and with a database. Trying to communicate during the challenge with different time zones was a difficult task.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a working prototype of the website and a first look at the UI. We also are proud of how we implemented our in-app currency.
What we learned
We learned about Reactjs, Firebase and Bootstrap
What's next for Safve
Add better user experience and backend Implement adding friends so one can compete for who can save the most. Add friend Leaderboards. Implement Stonkoin as a ERC20 token on the Ethereum Blockchain
