Propolis Wiki

[Propolis]( is a [wiki]( which utilizes the [[Hive]] blockchain for data storage. The name comes from the Greek word propolis (pro ‘for’ + polis ‘the city’[1]), also used for the bee glue that keeps the hive together. This suitably describes the intention of the project as an entry point to the community which connects all areas. It was launched on May, 8th, 2024[2] with the aim to maintain the popular Wikipedia quality, relevance and neutrality standards. The wiki should be a source of information on all Hive-related topics for both new users and seasoned [Hiveans](
## Edit of The Week and Logo Contests In May 17th, 2024[3] a design contest has concluded, and the jury chose the concept of [@wlffreitas]( as the winner of the 50 HBD first prize. To speed up the growth of the wiki and incentivize more authors to join in, it was decided to hold a regular "Edit Of The Week" contest with a prize of 25 HBD. Each weekend the best new articles or article edits of the last 7 days would have a vote on the winner. In addition to that, Propolis Wiki will declare an editor of the month at the end of each month, who will receive 50 HBD. If you are reading this in Propolis Wiki and follow the requirements to became a contributor, you can try and test text formatting in [Sandbox]( page before create or edit an article. ## Technical rundown To achieve the goal of providing crowdsourced knowledge in the popular wiki format, while still being available to all readers on any hive interface of their choosing, Python programming language was used in the backend. As it's not as simple CRUD with SQL app, the lightweight flask framework was used. Propolis Wiki founder @pharesim explained[4] that while all necessary data is stored on Hive, there is a need for a complementary database storing some information. He choses Postgres for its fts capabilities and scalability. ## Propolis Wiki Team [@pharesim]( – A reputed witness, creator of Curangel and skilled blockchain developer who runs the technical gears of Propolis.
