@ICXshark on twitter
Ambassador activities, public relations, meetups, educational content and activities, and web community development and management
Specifically - Twitter outreach and information.
You all know @ICXshark on twitter. That informative twitter friend that has been serving the ICX community for years and has over 1,500 informative tweets broadcasted and cemented
forever on the ICX blockchain at https://tracker.icon.foundation/address/hx1a1909152da41f8f1ab70ac2eb097ec8cbe60cc4. We are looking to take ICXshark (SPARTANbot) into the next realm. The recent CMC API bug cause a lot of information to show up None or Null, leaving information such as CMC rank, 30, 7, 1 day information, etc., lacking.
SPARTANbot 2.0 will offer many new features such as real-time direct message information. For example, @ing SPARTANbot on twitter “40000 staking” or “40000 stake” would send back a tweet showing the yield that one would make for staking 40,000 ICX for a week, month and year. @ing “7 day volume” would yield a reply of the 7 day volume of ICX, etc. All current SPARTANbot info and new features will be available, in real time, to all ICONists on twitter. A full tutorial with information will be posted on the Spartan Node medium. This would bring more eyes and interest to ICX and also give current holders and stakers vital information without having to fumble around to different sites looking for what they want.
This project would entail totally rewriting SPARTANbot and adding a new paid API input engine that offers real-time and more advanced information than current free APIs. Current free APIs only allow a total of 100-300 calls per day or 3 per minute where as paid versions allow over upwards or 4,000 calls per day or 10 per second. This would greatly increase the scope and depth of SPARTANbot and allow a more comprehensive user experience for all ICONists.
