Please Vote For The Latest Community Superblock: 1296000

Hello Snode owners! It’s time to vote for the latest proposals!

There is a great responsibility for Service Node (Snode) owners to vote either “yes,” or “no,” on the proposals. It cannot be emphasised enough how much the community as well as the Blocknet team relies on Snodes to vote on project proposals to ensure continued funding for development of the Blocknet.

The proposals for superblock 1296000 can be viewed below or on the FORUM forum here. Please note, proposals are being submitted individually so please make sure you scroll down and take your time to look over each proposal. FOR ANY LATE PROPOSALS PLEASE CHECK THE FORUM ABOVE.

In the latest wallet voting is now much easier. Navigate to the proposal area:

Click the “Vote” button for a proposal you wish to vote on and choose “yes”, “no” or “abstain” to vote. (If voting for multiple nodes or a vps, check “Vote many”.)

If using an older wallet, follow the instructions on how to vote for each proposal below.

The latest Superblock details are below in alphabetical order:

Proposal Name: corgi-feb Owner: Crypto Corgi

Proposal: Crypto Corgi

Overview: Continue managing and growing the Block DX and XRouter twitter accounts. This includes drafting engaging tweets, creating GIFs, creating images, replying the tweets, staying up to date on crypto twitter, etc.

Starting this month I will also be contributing tweets to @The_Blocknet twitter on an occasional basis, though it will not be my main focus.

Previous Work:

Last month turned out to be our best month yet in all categories:

This month we are on pace to break the Tweet Impression record from last month. Followers have slowed this month but still growing at at decent rate and profile visits remain solid.

I have also started focusing a bit more on the XRouter account with the recent developments, which saw some solid growth:

You will also notice that both the Block DX and XRouter twitter accounts have received design make-overs

Proposal Name: hanniabu-1296000 Owner: Hanni Abu

Cost: 4000 BLOCK

Proposal: Core Contributions

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 1) 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)
  • Block DX website (https://blockdx.com 1)
  • Compose content
  • Compose specifications
  • Wallet QA (MacOS)
  • Block DX task management, development, and QA (MacOS)
  • 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
  • Exchange communication
  • 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
  • Maintain API documentation
  • Block DX website maintenance
  • Block DX QA, release, manage tasks
  • Wallet v4.0.0 QA
  • Wallet v4.0.0 update help messages
  • Create new roadmap

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, may be pushed back due to a change in priority, or may be ongoing long term items.

  • Manage Block DX tasks
  • Continued documentation and tutorials
  • Continued blockdx.com development
  • Roadmap refinement
  • Update blocknet.co content (already in progress)

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

Proposal Name: michael-dev-feb Owner: michael

Cost: 15350 BLOCK

Proposal: Core Development

January recap
This month has been heavily focused on fixing Blocknet 4.0 bugs in preparation of the upcoming release. The team decided to push the release back to provide time to add a vote on stake feature that will make it easier for voters to manage votes. When a vote is staked it will be automatically recast on your behalf. Blocknet 4.0 progress can be reviewed in two branches: https://github.com/blocknetdx/blocknet/commits/4.0.0 1 and https://github.com/blocknetdx/blocknet/commits/feature-voteonstake. Test builds for the Blocknet 4.0 release can be obtained here: https://gitlab.com/blocknetdx/blocknet/pipelines/

February Development Overview
The goal is to release Blocknet 4.0 after the superblock 30. I will continue developing XRouter libraries that will allow developers to query the network without any wallets installed locally. I will also continue working on the Enterprise XRouter Proxy that will support high traffic service node operators. There may be bugs and issues reported over the next few weeks, as a result, I will be working on improvements and bug fixes on the new 4.0 wallet.

Current tasks

  • Blocknet 4.0 release
  • Vote-on-stake feature (QA)
  • XRouter C++ library
  • Bug fixes and optimizations

Other tasks

  • Maintenance and bug fixes on Blocknet products (XBridge, XRouter, XCloud, Block DX)

Upcoming XRouter tasks:

  • XRouter golang library
  • Blocknet Name Service (XRouter DNS)
  • Nginx support (COMPLETE)
  • URL plugin type (COMPLETE)

  • 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!
