For this project, I will deliberately not have any form of tracking in place due to the sensitive material that could be hashed. So no Google Analytics, Remarketing tags, GTM, Facebook Pixels, etc. Not even server logs! The only measurement being tracked is revenue in form of subscribed accounts and the total amount of hashes/verifications being made on the Hashr.io platform as a number. That's it.

    Hey David, Have you looked at opentimestamps or any other service? absolutely love the idea.
    I know this is a sideproject but would you add timestamps as a feature?
    You might also want to look at userbase.dev

      Hi Naveen, ok. Sound very interesting. Can you give me an example on how that would work with Hashr.io? That would be great!

      Userbase.dev looks awesome! Love it!

        i dont know what the hashr.io output would look like but I am assuming its a hash(whatever input). What are the uses of just hashing something other than messaging? It would be really valuable if you included a timestamp so I can say "here, I made a prediction at this timestamp, included in the hash, So I am a genius" or something along these lines.
        also check out volatile.wtf for some lolz.

          Love your input... but I am pretty blank about how you'd like timestamps integrated? What Hashr.io does is this (warning fake code upcoming):

          GET /hash/myweakpassword1
          OUTPUT ("8473z9roiutzw4oqrzdijqw4it75zdu3i")

          I can add more stuff to the output, that that would just increase request size and make integration harder. I fail to see the benefit of adding timestamps, since the hashes are generated on the fly anyway. I want to store the hash history in each user's account dashboard... there a timestamp does make sense. What we'll not do is to save input & output in the database. Just outputs.

            totally get it, love what you are doing. I might use your apis to post hashes to twitter. let me know when you can share access. Onwards and Upwards.
