We met with the ThunderCore team at the end of last week. Peerkat Earn integration with Quest is now complete and it is being tested this week by ThunderCore engineers. Peerkat Earn will go live on the ThunderCore Hub in the next fortnight with the first Earn videos available for users to earn TT for viewing featured videos.
Peerkat Web Extension has been in development and is almost ready for internal alpha testing. As soon as we are ready for a wider beta test we will invite our Peerkat Telegram group members to download the Peerkat Extension and start earning TT on the web too!
ThunderCore Update – 28 May 2021
We have put together this page to answer some questions we have seen from our users.
Please remember that we are a small team and can only cover so much, but we are excited at the products we are bringing to the crypto world and we are grateful to have an engaged and growing user base.
Thanks for all of your support so far!
The Peerkat Team
What we have been working on
Peerkat is our first application that we dreamt up at a hackathon back in 2019.
It was originally intended to be a live streaming application that was censorship resistant and had novel features.
Through our work with ThunderCore and legal advice it became clear that we wouldn’t be able to build this by bootstrapping, therefore we have pivoted to allow us to grow without needing VC or angel funding (see what’s next).
Current Features of Peerkat
Users can watch crypto & gaming videos and send tips in TT
Feedback pop-up form (thank you to the 30k people that have already sent us feedback so far!)
At the moment we have a few content creators that have kindly agreed to share content on Peerkat
We do not have the functionality to send tips directly to creators yet, which is why we are slow on the onboarding process for new creators
The creator onboarding and content upload process is currently a slow, manual process with lots of potential issues – we are working to streamline this so that onboarding will be easier for us soon
For now, we are restricting new content to creators we have previously moderated. The rules and regulations for user generated content are complex, particularly across different geographies, and they are constantly changing, therefore this is an important measure for Peerkat to reduce risk.
Roadmap – full roadmap released in August 2021
Peerkat Earn - June 2021
All users will be able to receive TT for watching featured videos
We have designed it so that users have to complete the entire video and cannot just skip directly to the end
We will keep the videos short
Users can learn more about each company by clicking on the link during or at the end of the video
We will be launching pilots of Peerkat Earn in the coming weeks and then expanding the service to new partners who want to showcase their brand on the platform

Streamlined upload process

Our developer team are working on an internal process to allow the non-tech people in our team admin permissions to upload
Peerkat Extension - August 2021
Similar to Peerkat Earn but built for the web!
Peerkat Extension will be available for browsers built on chromium such as Google Chrome and Brave Browser
Users will be able to receive crypto for viewing brand messages – initially TT only
