IWishYouNFT: Make your wish last forever as an NFT

Project Title:

IWishYouNFT

Problem Statement: What is the problem you will solve?

IWY aims to become the main alternative to centralized social media platforms by providing a decentralized platform where people can design, create, deliver and share their own creations as NFTs.

Our goal is to dethrone centralized social platforms when it refers to people wishing the best for birthdays, anniversaries, or simply special moments with others by transforming these precious moments into NFTs.

Goals: What are you aiming to accomplish?

We are looking for funding to migrate our platform into Akash. Currently, it’s deployed on Hetzner and MongoAtlas https://iwishyounft.com/.

Besides, we are working to add super cool new features to our platform:

  • i18n
  • Feed
  • Reactions (likes & comments)
  • A better design
  • Add support to create NFTs from Gifs and videos.

Impact: What impact will this project have?

IWishYouNFT is not another NFT collection project, IWY was created with the idea of developing a new platform where people without any technical knowledge can express themselves through NFTs. This project was inspired by the idea of connecting digital evolution with human emotion. The main driver of human behavior is undoubtedly emotion, and finding a bridge between people and this new decentralized digital world is of extreme importance for further expansion of this space.

Budget: How much funding will this require?

We request $5000 which will be distributed as follows.

  • Runway for some centralized services, like Gmail, Github, etc
  • DevOps, will help us to migrate from the centralized architecture to Akash.
  • Pinata or any other services for IPFS
  • Designer
  • Marketing
  • Akash infrastructure runway.

(We are also in the tokenomics, but this is out of scope for this grant)

Note: The amount requested is not going to go to developers in any way, we are looking for support to pay for the services that currently we are paying for by ourselves.

Timeline: What is the timeline for accomplishing this task?

We have a lot of our V2 already done, we are doing our best to deliver it at the end of May.

Team: Are you looking for additional team members?

Our doors are open to anyone who wants to collaborate.

Reporting: How will you report your progress to the community (e.g. weekly calls, reports)?

Of course, we can provide reports once per week with the progress and once we have our development environment set, we can share it with the community, so they can see the progress and also provide feedback.

Once our V2 is complete, we can do a community call to show it.

Design: Do you have any mock ups or screenshots?
