Please Vote For The Latest Community Superblock

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 907200 can be viewed below or on the NEW 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.

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:

Superblock 907200

Proposal Name: aderks-907200
Owner: aderks
Cost: 1750 BLOCK

Proposal:

To continue working with the UAT/Integrations/QA team for the month of May.

Background

I’ve been around since the inception of Blocknet in 2014 (Blocknet’s ITO) but did not start contributing until I saw a need in 2017. The first moment where I knew I was hooked on helping the project was when Dan asked for volunteers to help test a trade on the DX.

Past Non-Superblock Volunteered Contributions:

  • April 2017 — Testing early stage DX trades w/ atcsecure and recording the process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALxr7MpaIoA (posted by a community member at the time)
  • July 2017 — Created and maintained the blocknet-docs repo where guides and resources were created: https://github.com/BlocknetDX/blocknet-docs
  • July 2017 — Befriending and working closely with 86b we began working on Coin Integrations. With no prior experience on how XBridge worked we dissected the process and upon many frustrating very late nights (early mornings) we successfully integrated our first coin. To this date Integrations has successfully integrated 144 coins and has 263 other coins in various stages of integration.

Proposal Name: michael-dev-may
Owner: michael
Cost: 7000 BLOCK

Proposal: Core Development 

April recap
Development in April was heavily invested in XRouter, specifically working toward a production ready codebase for service nodes. XRouter Beta was successfully launched on April 23rd, after more than a year in development! XRouter Beta was merged into the Blocknet master branch: https://github.com/BlocknetDX/blocknet/

May Overview
The goals for May include continuing support for Blocknet’s products: XBridge, XRouter, and Block DX; and to begin pulling in the new Bitcoin v18 codebase. There’s a lot of work that needs to be completed, and these tasks will span multiple months.

Summary of current high-level tasks:

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

XRouter tasks:

  • Connection optimizations
  • 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 develper 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

Other miscellaneous tasks still on the radar

  • Improved handling of pending orders affected by a Blocknet client is shutdown and restart
  • Refundable trade fees (for failed orders)
  • Wallet Redesign UI fixes & improvements
  • Development discussions

How to vote:

  • If not voting via the proposal area in the wallet (as described above) you can instead vote using the following method:
  • Open wallet and go to Tools > Debug Console. The debug console will open in a new window.

Proposal Name: hanniabu-907200
Owner: Hanni Abu | @hanniabu on Discord/Telegram
Cost: 4800 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
  • Assist UAT with Coin Announcements
  • XRouter QA
  • Block DX QA
  • Review articles being prepped
  • Coordinate with exchanges and services for wallet update
  • 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: UAT-Fattox-907200
Owner: Fattox
Cost: 2500 BLOCK

Proposal

Previous Work: Working as part of UAT (with 86b/Aderks) and alongside Hanni for the past year, plus other team members where required, including our devs as part of QA tasks. Voluntary efforts within the community for almost a year prior to joining the core team.

Foreword:
Until 5 weeks ago i was balancing my regular 9–5 day job with my work within Blocknet (being here 6–7 days/week, 40+ hours/week average).

Since leaving my day job, i have spent all my extra time working more hours within Blocknet, mostly alongside future-facing use cases and investigative efforts/QA/testing mostly with 86b. As well as the usual UAT tasks with 86b, aderks, Hanni and others such as our dev team. Working with Phil and other contributors on some Marketing topics such as coin announcements, collaborative content efforts within the team, plus being involved in communication with certain relevant partners both current and future.

Rather than sticking to this habit of 80+ hour weeks like i have been doing for the past month, and which most other team members commit to, i would rather stick to a more conservative 40–50 hours average at this time and not increase my hours nor my salary.
(Realistically… i will likely spend far more time here than that, because i’m a Blocknet junkie, but i’d like to have the option at least.

I have certain other self-development goals (technical skills) that i wish to commit a little time to, but want the bulk of my daily focus to be on Blocknet, of course. Leaving my day job has freed up a lot of my time and energy, and i’d like to use a little for myself, and the rest on a greater capability to focus the efforts i put in to my Blocknet tasks.

Overview:
Some of the areas i currently work on and/or intend on working on, as required and according to our priorites, as they evolve:

  • Integration strategy — Including future platform investigation/testing within UAT (ETH and beyond).
  • Product analysis — Related to the areas both the above (external products) and below (our products). Discussions within the team on technical considerations.
  • XRouter/XCloud testing and QA.
  • Block DX UI QA.
  • Wallet/Client release QA.
  • Auto configuration (wizard) testing and QA.
  • Other bug reporting, error tracking, and logging + any other relevant QA tasks with UAT/devs.
  • Support — Both within the community and also helping out partners who are interested in testing our products.
  • Coin Announcements lifecycle: from initial integration/QA to community/partner outreach and coordination of announcements/support. Creating ANN media. Note: The format of the above will be changing very shortly, we wanted to hit most in our list once with our current polls, to give them a more individual ‘competitive’ focus prior to the next steps. These next steps should allow us to clear our listings backlog quicker, leaving more time for us to look towards approaching new projects that require a ‘first home’ exchange. We would like to ultimately become the new go-to for new projects that need an initial listing to trade on (think EtherDelta in 2017), hopefully driving more adoption and general awareness towards Block DX, as well as our project as a whole.
  • Helping to support and promote the use of Block DX to communities that are integrated in to our protocol, both old and new. Using raffles, airdrops, tips (etc) as a way to enable people to try the DX using these small portions of BLOCK as trade-fees.
  • Assisting in any efforts we make towards pushing awareness of Blocknet throughout the communities of our supported projects and partners, as well as towards fresh eyes, by working with new partners and influencers where advantageous. Co-marketing efforts may be taken up when deemed to be beneficial.
  • Collaborating on content creation for Blocknet’s Social Media, to aid in driving traffic to our site and community channels.
  • Collaborating on other developmental/marketing strategies and initiatives, with both the Strategy group and the team as a whole.
  • Collaborating on the creation and maintenance of documentation: EG Tutorials, resources, informative articles and other content, for both our community and a wider audience.
  • Collaboration and communication with current partners, delegates and other teams we work with.
  • Dealing with any necessary discussions and negotiations undertaken with any other potential partners and third-parties who would like to work with us. EG: Exchanges, dev teams and any other interested parties.

Overview:

Beyond my UAT-related tasks and services, as a Core Team member I work to fill any existing voids including marketing, strategy, administrative, community management, financial, and working & communicating with partners on behalf of the project as a whole.

My goal is to continue completing these tasks keeping the best interest of the Blocknet project, community, and service nodes in mind to help ensure the project’s future success and expansion.

How to vote:

  • If not voting via the proposal area in the wallet (as described above) you can instead vote using the following method:
  • Open wallet and go to Tools > Debug Console. The debug console will open in a new window.
  • To vote for Proposal: 86b-907200, type the following command:
mnbudget vote 52e181d0aea03a975f4780ca0e12ff742474dd33f8cab0d8245fe3db71e4e129 yes/no
  • If voting with multiple node, you can use “mnbudget vote-many….”
  • If voting from the terminal, type in the following:
blocknetdx-cli mnbudget vote 52e181d0aea03a975f4780ca0e12ff742474dd33f8cab0d8245fe3db71e4e129 yes/no

  • 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!
