Product Hunt Weekly Digest
January 1st, 2018

Launching a product in 2018? 🚀😻
Ship In 2018 ⛵️
Welcome to the new year, friends. 2017 was a wild one, so we'd like to celebrate some milestones from the Product Hunt community from this past year:

⬆️ 2.5M+ upvotes were generously awarded from across the world. Go back in time to see what you missed.

🌎 4,500+ of you from 124 countries joined the Product Hunt Global Hackathon. Here are the winners.


🔥 5th most upvoted product of the year was Firefox's new browser (we didn't see that coming).

💰 800+ cryptocurrency and blockchain-related products launched. Sign of the times.

💌 260+ daily newsletters written. Explore them all here. This one was the most popular of the year.

📘 1 Product Hunt book published (so far! 😏)

📝167k+ followers on our Medium blog, which grew to the 14th most followed on Medium in 2017. 👏

👥 1M+ registered users reached (even though the majority of visitors never login). To see your user #, visit your profile.


On a more personal note, I'm pumped by the response we've received from Ship, our first paid offering. We introduced the private beta toward the end of the year, now used by hundreds of paying teams to build an audience and communicate with their users. We have a deep roadmap of improvements (hint: messaging is a big focus for us), focused on helping makers ship better products.

Today we're introducing a new program to help makers ship in 2018. If your New Year's resolution is to release a product for your startup or just a side project, take a look. We're offering a massive discount on Ship Pro plans, early access to Team Profiles, and kitty stickers to 50 applicants. Sign up here.
