Describe your grant.
Zecwallet Light servers are down and not maintained anymore. Unfortunately, this leaves the Zcash public infrastructure with fewer options. There are no servers that run the ZecWallet fork of LWD that includes the Spam Filtering capabilities, and basically only mainnet.lightwalletd.com This grant is about running the servers on a cloud provider for 1 year AT COST. 2 servers at 200 + 100 for maintenance/bandwidth = 500 $/mo Bills will be provided on request. We’ll use https://bithost.io and pay directly in ZEC.
The grant will be entirely deposited in the bithost account. Then, it will be used to pay for the services until it runs out. Besides setting up the servers, there will be no guaranteed devop support.
