MarketSquare Hubs: Your Gateway to Entire Ecosystems

It has been a few months since we have gone over some of the updates coming to MarketSquare. With the beta launch just around the corner, we thought this would be a great time to publicly unveil MarketSquare Hubs. Let’s learn about them and why they are so useful for our partners and the MarketSquare community!

A Place to Start

Hubs on MarketSquare are exactly what the name implies: the center of activity and focal point of a network. Our hubs on MarketSquare will focus on specific blockchain networks and categories that combine a vast amount of information in one place.

For crypto veterans and newcomers alike, the amount of information and resources available on their favorite projects and ecosystems are fragmented across multiple platforms. In terms of quality, some of the information and resources out there range from OK to confusing at best. MarketSquare’s Hubs are the answer to this problem. Hubs give you a birds-eye view of large ecosystems such as Ethereum, Polkadot, EOS, ARK and Hive. Moreover, Hubs cover a large variety of different resources and deliver that material in a condensed and easy-to-understand way.

Hubs will have a variety of sections ranging from:

  • Featured Projects
  • Trending Projects
  • Educational videos
  • News
  • and more!

Let’s take a look at the ARK Hub as an example:

Note that the names on many of these modules are placeholders and are only for illustrative purposes

In terms of design, everything on Hubs is streamlined for maximum efficiency. Hubs are created in a way that presents users with some of the most useful and relevant information to each ecosystem. Getting started on ARK for the first time? Trying to figure out how staking works on ETH 2.0? Or just want to find some of the best blockchain games to play? We have you covered.

A Place to Grow

With MarketSquare we are placing a high value not just on great content, but on content that educates and informs users. Blockchain concepts can be complicated. If we compound this with platforms that have their own consensus mechanisms, their own ways to set up accounts, it can all get very confusing.

How did we solve this? We created simple videos that serve as explainers and quick tutorials for new users. In addition, we have other videos that focus on the top dAapps for certain platforms, top wallets and more. The goal is to have something for everyone. Even long-time followers of certain projects will have something to learn.

An example of how we explain ARK:

As MarketSquare continues to complete future roadmap items, you can expect to see robust knowledge hubs that will host a variety of tutorials and guides as well. The goal is to bring users the very best resources and allow them to continue exploring and learning about the projects they follow.

A Place to Connect

Not only are hubs a great way to connect with different communities and projects, but it is also a great way for MarketSquare to connect with our partners. Each Hub on MarketSquare, while containing overlapping categories and elements, will be slightly unique. With feedback from our partners and the information they find to be the most valuable, each Hub will highlight the major aspects of their respective ecosystems.

Communities aren’t formed overnight, but with a strong offering of resources and content from MarketSquare, we hope to make that task easier. Users can follow their favorite hubs to receive updates and stay informed. By hitting the follow button on a project’s specific hub, users will get all the latest notifications regarding Hub activity.

We look forward to sharing more about MarketSquare with you over the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more exciting partnership announcements and updates as our team prepares for the MarketSquare beta launch.
