We are happy to announce that the initial free keyword staking traffic period has been extended again, until at least January 1st, 2022!
Keyword staking can be accessed at https://keywords.presearch.org
With more than 55 million PRE staked, the initial usage of the keyword staking platform has exceeded our expectations, and the thousands of users who’ve been beta testing have provided us with lots of great feedback and ways to improve the platform.
Now that we are preparing for the mainnet release of the new Presearch decentralized search engine later this year, it makes sense to continue to extend the offer.
We wanted to let you know of a few awesome updates to the Presearch Nodes! We have mentioned these in our telegram channels, so if you want to be the first to know, make sure to join!
A few months ago, we launched the Node Statistics dashboard for our node operators, and we’ve now gone a step further to release the Node Status API that will allow you to programmatically manage monitoring your node operations.
For easier node management, we’ve also released another update allowing you to specify your PRE stake, Node Description, and Node URL as part…
Many of you have shared your concerns with us at times about the Reward Verification System (RVS) and associated User Levels since they were launched in early 2019.
One of the challenges of operating a platform that shares cryptocurrency rewards with community members who use the search engine is that unfortunately it also attracts people who abuse the system and break the Terms of Service in order to gain tokens through fraudulent means (such as duplicate accounts, bots, and bogus searches). …
Presearch is a search engine built by people like you for you. In order to access our search engine, you must first pass through a web browser making it, essentially, the gateway to the web.
After discussions with a few major browsers in the space, we realized that they are bigger gatekeepers for users to access the web than what we initially thought. They control which search engines you have access to by default, while making it difficult to change your default provider.
For search engines like us, it…
We’re excited to bring you another partnership that will make it easy to contribute compute power to Presearch through another great decentralized cloud provider service. You can now easily run a Presearch Node through FluxOS!
FluxOS is a second-layer operating system/application that allows hardened Dockerized apps to run on Flux’s fully decentralized computational network. Built using Mongo, Express, Vue, and Node (MEVN Stack), FluxOS is a highly-accessible playground for developers that is completely open-source.
App creators, blockchain builders, web designers, and any type of developer can Dockerize their innovations and easily deploy them on FluxOS infrastructure.
We’re excited to share with you our updated roadmap leading up to the launch of the Presearch mainnet, later in 2021.
Before we continue, we wanted to thank our amazing community members for supporting us through the launch of the decentralized search engine testnet as we move toward going live with mainnet. We appreciate all of your input and contributions to help improve the platform.
You can read our May 2021 development progress update to learn what our small but mighty dev team has accomplished over the last 4 months.
In order to realize the mainnet launch vision, we have…
As we were preparing our updated development roadmap, we thought it made sense to first paint a picture of where we are heading, so that we’re all envisioning and working toward the same shared destination.
You’re on your mobile device, you want to run a private search and earn rewards in the form of a valuable cryptocurrency, PRE tokens.
To do this, you click on the P_ icon on your home screen and launch the mobile app, which loads quickly and enables you to search from the top search field.
You run your search, which provides you with…
Today, we’re excited to announce our partnership with WordProof to bring timestamped search results to Presearch. As the first search engine in the world to integrate WordProof’s universal blockchain-based timestamping system, Presearch will soon be able to show you when information was last edited or updated. We believe this will go a long way toward improving trust and transparency on the web.
We’re excited to announce that the new Presearch dark mode is now online and ready for use!
Dark mode has been one of the most requested improvements to the Presearch platform, and it’s been at the top of the team’s list as well.
With more and more time spent online, the need to protect our vision and access content in a way that is easy on the eyes is really important.
This new version of Presearch enables you to turn the light emitted by your screen way down and invert the colors so that the background is dark and the…
