You can learn more about it on [@elear original post here.](https://steemit.com/witness-category/@utopian-io/utopian-the-community-driven-witness-is-here-vote-for-my-witness-lets-grow-together) This is great news since I know that @elear will keep a really reliable node running but also because it will fund one of the most important project of the steem ecosystem. Not only does utopian.io create a completely new use case for the steem blockchain but it will also empower one of the most important resources to any open-source project: developers. # How to vote for utopian-io witness 1.

Make us all a favor and go vote right now :-) ## The Utopian Chatbox Bounty Last week I decided that I would put **500 STEEM** for bounty to anyone who can implement a chatbox on the utopian.io website. This is a really important development to facilitate communication between devs and open source contributors. NOBODY YET as came forward with the intension to make it happen. This is not rocket science after all and if you were afraid of the competition snatching that bounty before you, realize that it is not the case. Learn more about the bounty here: https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@cryptoctopus/bounty-create-a-chatbox-on-utopian ## Conclusion These are exciting times! We are right on the verge of creating something BIG that will change the content internet. Keep your nose to the grindstone and we'll see each other at the top!
