Proposal Name: hanniabu-950400
Owner: Hanni Abu
Cost: 4500 BLOCK

Proposal:

Previous Work:
I began contributing in August 2017 when I saw there were areas the project could use help in. The first thing I worked on was an informational website (blocknetprotocol.com) since informational resources we lacking. This led to submitting my first Superblock proposal that next month for further contribution.

Since then I have been responsible for multiple projects and tasks, as well have assisted in others. Some of these items are as follows:

  • API documentation (https://api.blocknet.co/)
  • New configurations file format: https://github.com/blocknetdx/blockchain-configuration-files
  • Compose documentation (https://docs.blocknet.co)
  • Compose content
  • Compose specifications
  • Wallet QA (MacOS)
  • Block DX QA (MacOS)
  • Block DX development
  • Website development
  • Participate in interviews
  • Roadmap discussion
  • Manage and organize files and documents
  • Review announcements and publications
  • Convention prep, attending convention, and followups
  • Newsletter content, review, and submission
  • Article reviews
  • Release announcements, posts, and emails
  • Respond to questions from the community
  • Respond to emails
  • Fill out applications and forms

Below is a list of items I have been working on the past Superblock period.

  • Daily intra-team communication and coordination
  • Reviewed/finalized the newsletter
  • Submitted newsletter email
  • Continued documentation
  • Maintain existing documentation
  • Maintain blockchain-configuration-files
  • Maintain and update bootstrap files
  • Update API documentation
  • Wallet QA, release
  • Block DX QA, release, manage tasks
  • Review articles being prepped
  • Coordinate with exchanges and services for wallet update
  • Update financial tracker
  • Forum updates
  • Website maintenance
  • Request updates on information sites

Overview:
As a core contributor of Blocknet, I take part in many daily tasks that help keep the project running smoothly, as well as larger tasks that move Blocknet forward. Putting in an average 60 hours a week, I partake in projects that build Blocknet’s foundation and assist in other projects in order to help meet objectives. This proposal is for compensation to allow me to continue contributing to Blocknet for the next upcoming Superblock period.

I have a technical background with a degree in mechanical engineering, prior development experience, and have spent a few years a a few early stage startups (pre and post seed round). This experience helps in various aspects of the project including working in a fast-paced environment, wearing multiple ‘hats’, pivoting priorities and tasks, understanding the project technicals and vision, communicating the different components, conveying concepts into diagrams and text, and budgeting and financials.

Attention to detail is another useful trait. When reviewing interface UI and user experience, performing QA, writing specifications and documents, and communicating concepts, this attention to detail is important as it’s typically the intricacies that make a difference.

In addition to daily tasks, the following list are main items I plan to be working on in the following Superblock period. Keep in mind that some of these may not be completed this upcoming Superblock period or may be pushed back due to a change in priority.

  • Block DX development
  • Continued documentation
  • Continued wallet and Block DX tutorials
  • Continued website content revision

The amount requested for this Superblock is a retainer to continue contributing to this project.

Proposal Name: marketingfund-950400
Owner: Fattox (Funds are paid out directly to our Marketing Fund
Cost: 4600 BLOCK

Proposal: Marketing Content Fund

Overview:
A lot of time and effort has been spent during May investigating what options are available to us for content creation. We also had a video made by Chico Crypto, and have a number of other videos (reviews/interviews) already confirmed and/or in the negotiation phase.

We’d like to increase and maintain a healthy frequency of content creation, in the form of (mostly) videos and published articles. In order to fund these creations and publications, we have decided it makes sense to determine a monthly budget for content creation and plan for expenditure.

As a first draft, using our data, we have come up with the following:
$15k/month — which should afford us:

  • 2–3 Youtube videos.
  • 1 or more published articles on crypto news sites.
  • Any graphics/design work associated with the above media.

Currently our Marketing Fund has 6061 BLOCK:
https://chainz.cryptoid.info/block/address.dws?BgSDpy7F7PuBZpG4PQfryX9m94NNcmjWAX.htm 1
(Note: The funds are temporarily being staked, this was to aid in stabilising our chain while we had our forking problems over the past few days, it will be disabled once we’re sure everything is steady.)

This fund is valued at around $20k at our current price level. Less $8k in confirmed but yet unpaid expenses. So, approximately $12k total remains.

Relying on the current balance of this fund, without making this proposal, would leave us with little to no ‘buffer’ or safety net in place to ensure that we can continue paying for such content. Or perhaps leave us unable to fund these efforts throughout June at all, especially if our price should move down.

Therefore, we’d like to make a proposal for content creation each month, ahead of time, to keep this buffer of funds intact, in case we need to cover any unforseen Marketing expenses that may arise, or cope with a downturn in price.

If you’d like to support us in keeping up the pressure and efforts of getting ourselves noticed and infront of the eyes of various audiences, please vote for this initiative.

Proposal Name: michael-dev-jun
Owner: michael
Cost: 6500 BLOCK

Proposal: Core Development

May recap
Development in May has been focused on upgrading to the v18 Bitcoin codebase. The core Proof-of-Stake code has been implemented and the chain is capable of syncing the Blocknet chain. Additional PoS checks and optimizations are required to support PoS on the Bitcoin codebase and development of these additional checks is in progress. The v18 Bitcoin codebase was not designed for PoS, so the team is focused on ensuring the security of the PoS system is not compromised during the upgrade. Additionally, version 3.13.1 was released which included improvements to the XRouter networking code. Block DX 1.1.0 was also released, containing many many updates over the past several months.

June Overview
This month is focused on continuing the upgrade process of the Blocknet core blockchain and networking code. Bitcoin v18 is the core codebase for Blocknet. Additionally, bug fixes to XBridge and XRouter will remain a priority while the chain upgrade is in progress.

Core Development task summary:

  • XBridge maintenance
  • XRouter maintenance
  • New basechain R&D
  • XRouter 1.0

Upcoming XRouter tasks:

  • Blocknet Name Service
  • URL plugin type
  • XRouter c++ library
  • XRouter golang library

New base blockchain plan:

Blocknet desperately needs a new base blockchain and we’re planning on forking the latest v18 Bitcoin codebase to put us in line with the best security, network protocol optimizations, and optimized code. We plan on adding Service nodes and staking to the v18 Bitcoin codebase.
Reasons for new base chain:

  • Upstream security updates and optimizations (on the current chain we’re unable to efficiently incorporate upstream changes from PIVX/Dash)
  • Security and stability, Bitcoin has a much more resilient and tested codebase
  • Scalability, we need an overhaul of our RPC and networking code to support mass adoption of XBridge and XRouter
  • Developer network, Bitcoin has a strong and active developer network

This is a multi-month effort, and will put Blocknet’s basechain in line with the BTC standard. The dev team is planning the following:

  • Forking v18 Bitcoin
  • Implementing On-Chain Governance (proposal voting will be recorded directly on-chain)
  • Moving everyone to Staking rewards
  • Service Nodes are not going away, but they will be exclusive to powering DX/XBridge and XRouter
  • Service Nodes will be able to stake and can earn additional fees through XBridge and XRouter

Here I found that a new user could back out of password encryption yet the gui did not recognize the canceling of encryption. The only way to correct this was to reboot the wallet. This was then reported to 86b immediately upon findings. Along with full video and description of the occurrence. Link to video: https://forum.blocknet.co/t/thevoice-joining-blocknet-team-950400/89

I will focus most of my time in three areas — Support Channel and Real Use Usability Videos, and Usability Bashing, with the goal in making new user adoption to the Blocknet DX as easy as possible.

For more detailed instructions see: http://blocknetdx.forumotion.com/t6-blocknet-proposal-introduction-guide

  • An introduction to Superblocks and a guide to submitting and voting for proposals, can be found here.
  • A proposal category was created in the Blocknet Discord for focused and specific discussion of proposals and ideas. Within this category, there is a channel called #anon-snode-feedback for Service Node owners to provide anonymous feedback on proposals.
  • Votes in favor must be greater than votes against by at least 10% of the total number of Service Nodes.
  • The proposals that pass are sorted in a descending order list by the sum of yes votes minus no votes. If multiple proposals have an equal sum of yes votes minus no votes, those are sorted randomly. If there are not enough funds remaining in the Superblock for a proposal to be paid out, it is skipped (not paid out), and the next proposal in the list is checked.
  • Multi-month proposals are voted on each month and are treated in the same manner as normal proposals in the ordered list.
  • There is also something called a ‘final budget,’ which needs to be submitted between 2880 blocks and 28 blocks before the Superblock. By default, Service Nodes automatically vote yes on final budgets. Moving forward, proposal voting will end 2880 blocks before the Superblock since the final budget locks in the proposal vote counts.
  • An introduction to Superblocks and a guide to voting can be found here.
  • In addition, we have created a separate proposal notification email alert reminder that snode owners can sign up for here so they do not forget to vote.(This email is separate to the Word on the BLOCK newsletter email).

PLEASE VOTE ASAP. MANY THANKS!
