Hi everyone, ZecHub wishes to extend it’s bounty program into 2024.
Name of Project: ZecHub open-source education hub for Zcash
USD ($) amount requested: $7000
ZecHub creates education material for Zcash. Our mission is to create engaging and informative content for the wider crypto space that both teaches real world Zcash usage through tutorials & provides a repository of knowledge through the ZecHub Wiki. This grant proposal intends to extend the existing ZecHub treasury amount reserved for bounties.
ZecHub harnesses the talent and enthusiasm of both Zcash community members & Web3 contributors. Our bounty program issues ZEC for completed tasks such as research, documentation and design work. At present we have budgeted a sufficient amount to see through the project to its final milestone ending in December.
We update the community on a monthly basis with itemised work completed, hold open weekly sync meetings to discuss progress & bi-monthly treasury reports for the DAO.
ZecHub generally distributes ZEC evenly over time. DAO proposals can be made by anyone who wishes to actively guide our direction or suggest educational projects.
ZecHub has successfully showcased a grassroots and community led project. It allows people from across the globe an ability to earn ZEC, demonstrating & encouraging viability of Zcash as peer-to-peer payment.
Providing a means of wider distribution & access to the dev fund is also a key reason the ZecHub Bounty program has proved highly productive.
The project is currently able to reach a small audience, there is opportunity for us to attract developers, writers and designers to join the mission and broaden ZecHub’s scope to cater toward the wider privacy ecosystem, offering Zcash payments to other, aligned communities if given an opportunity to extend the project.
At a future point ZecHub may wish to acquire funding external to the Zcash Development Fund & become self sustainable.
Supplementing the Bounty Program will allow ZecHub to continue operations into mid 2024, allowing for planning and preparation of larger projects in advance.
Improving the quality of content released is a growing necessity if we are to find a larger audience, seeking longer duration tasks and quality contributions will be less challenging if our Treasury is able to accommodate for it.
The ZecHub Core Contributor Team role’s are to maintain operations and services for the DAO and Bounty Program.
The DAO is an advisory body that is required for any major changes, such as changes to bounty program, governance or decisions related to funding projects outside the scope of regular weekly tasks. As a community driven project, the DAO must be able to raise proposals and vote.
We are very much hoping to extend the project! This may be an opportune time, considering the low price of ZEC now would allow us to issue a great deal more tasks in future when (hopefully) adjusting for future prices.
Interested to hear feedback on the proposal!
