Proposals: michael-dev-feb-1, michael-dev-feb-2, michael-dev-feb-3

I am separating proposals because a single proposal for my efforts does not fit in the superblock. Note* the proposals with sufficient votes will be paid out of the Dev Fund if they do not fit in the superblock.

January recap:
This month has been a very busy. I was able to implement many XBridge and Block DX fixes and improvements. Including servicenode order handling improvements, improved security and verification checks, optimizing Block DX data loading, better utxo selector for orders, improved reporting of order states, a new testnet5 for devs, faster Blocknet wallet syncing, and many more bug fixes as you can see in Blocknet's github commit logs https://github.com/BlocknetDX/BlockDX/commits/3.11.1

To vote on my proposals (6950 BLOCK):

Superblock 777600 Final Proposals Empty UAT (QA/Integrations/Marketing)

on Sun Jan 27, 2019 10:17 am
Team consists of 86b, aderks, and Fattox.

Below is a non-exhaustive list of tasks we will aim to spend our time on. Some tasks will take priority over others, based on many variables, but we will aim to cover both 'roles' in a efficient and sufficient manner, based on what makes the most sense at the time. Please be aware that due to the necessity of managing our time and prioritising these tasks, based on how critical they are, it may not be possible to address every single point listed below. But rest-assured, our team will aim to work in a way which is the most optimal and beneficial to the project, at any given time.

Role #1 - UAT/QA/Integrations:

  • Support services
  • Integration strategy
  • Product analysis
  • Bug reporting, error tracking, and logging
  • Collaboration with other projects and teams
  • New coin integration, confirming, and corresponding QA
  • Genesis testing
  • Exploit checks
  • Communicating with partners and project delegates
  • XRouter testing and QA
  • Block DX UI QA
  • Wallet release QA
  • Auto configuration testing and QA

Role #2 - Marketing:

  • Organize the continuation of our Coin Announcements through the entire lifecycle: from initial integration/QA to community/partner outreach and coordination of announcements/support.
  • As a run-off of our QA work, we will be aiming to circle back to communities each time we update support for a new client version - serving as a periodic promotion of Block DX to every supported community.
  • Pushing our branding and awareness deeper throughout the communities of our supported projects and partners.
  • Creating content for Blocknet’s Social Media and driving traffic to our site and community channels.
  • Collaborating on Tutorial resources, informative articles and other content, for both our community and a wider audience.
  • Collaborating on other developmental marketing strategies and initiatives, with both the Strategy group and the team as a whole.
  • Approaching communities within the space of Ethereum to pre-ignite the awareness and benefits of our ability to host a decentralized alternative to Infura, amongst our node networks.
  • Aiming to increase the amount of pairs on Block DX with maker bots.

To vote on UAT’s proposals:
UAT-1-777600 - 3,000 + 10 fee = 3,010 BLOCK):
mnbudget vote f6ee792dc96ed8eaa02ef8da972c87fbb425bf099213afc71a77732eb7b69e31 yes/no

Superblock 777600 Final Proposals Empty Re: Superblock 777600 Final Proposals

on Mon Jan 28, 2019 12:48 pm
Proposal: hanniabu-777600
Owner: Hanni Abu | @hanniabu on Discord/Telegram
URL: https://goo.gl/GU3Rio
Total: 2200 BLOCK
mnbudget vote d0661080fb87dc529be51dd16f75048fe8ab9b1e8fa3c4c69f0b594c529719a8 yes/no


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.

Past Contributions
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
- 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
- Release announcements, posts, and emails
- Respond to questions from the community
- Respond to emails
- Fill out applications and forms

Past Month
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
- DARC podcast
- The Blockchain Brief interview
- Coinbase listing
- First iteration of documentation portal https://docs.blocknet.co
- Started tutorial recordings
- Block DX development
---- Misc style and text updates
---- Orderbook own order design
---- Orderbook size bar design
---- Depth chart design
---- Order filtering between Active/Inactive tabs
---- Simplified order statuses
---- View status on hover
---- Fixed rounding errors in my orders panel
---- Updated market pricing settings screen
---- Informational screen (in progress)
- Block DX QA

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.

- Continued documentation iterations
- Continued wallet and Block DX tutorial videos
- Javascript library for generating, checking, compiling, and searching configs (lower priority)

Work has begun on these items with the plan to release a majority of it throughout the next month. There has been some delay on this to put focus on Block DX development to prepare it for wider market visibility.

As a retainer to continue contributing to this project, the following amount is requested for this Superblock with payment to be made out of the community funds if the proposal passes but is bumped.

Total - 2200 BLOCK

@~$2.05 BLOCK = $4.5k/mo = $54.1k/yr
