Funding Campaign - Yeastplume - March to Aug 2019

March - Aug 2019 Developer Funding Campaign - Yeastplume

Edit: Added Grin donations!

After a couple of years of thinking, talking, arguing, experimentation, coding, re-coding, and parsing mathematical symbols, Grin’s mainnet launch is finally becoming a reality. Getting to this exciting milestone has taken a massive amount of effort by the entire Grin community and it’s truly something to be proud of.

But even though we’ve come a long way, this still just the beginning, and the list of post-launch development tasks is as long as it’s ever been. So once again I’m asking the community to permit me to continue dedicating myself full-time to Grin’s development. I’m running my 4th personal funding campaign to cover my full-time presence from March to August 2019 (6 months). As always, all of the relevant information as well as my complete bio is on the funding page so no information repeated here.

As always, I’ll keep the status info from the funding page up-to-date here. This time, I’m just maintaining ETH and BTC addresses, as there hasn’t been enough XMR take-up in previous rounds to justify maintaining the address.

Once again thanks to all donors who have contributed to previous campaigns. I hope you can appreciate the impact you’ve had on Grin’s development.

Hello All

Anda bisa saja kenakan pajak dalam jumlah kecil misal 0.1% setiap 3 bulan dari setiap wallet GRIN untuk Dana Reserve/Treasury.

Bisakah itu diterapkan?

Google Translate:

Hello All

You can force “small amount tax”, for example 0.1% every 3 months from each GRIN wallet in the blockchain for the Reserve / Treasury Fund.

Can it be applied?

Gift economy - No one has mentioned the idea of merchants using GRIN for online stores and a suggested .1% monthly tip out for transactions. Also, wanted to point out, it’s too early to expect miners to gift because they have not had a full month yet of expenses and electric bills do factor into cost prior to the ability to gift.

“Giving is a privilege and increases prestige.” I was happy to tip and will continue to do so because it feels good to GRIN. :santa:
