Proposal: Build and Fund the Open Tech Together

Project Title: Akanator

Problem Statement: What is the problem you will solve?

To build an open web3 network that is open source, collaborative, and economically empowering.

Goals: What are you aiming to accomplish?

Creating community and infrastructure for Web 3 — a diverse range of tools, technologies, and networks that enable people to work for the open internet.

Impact: What impact will this project have?

By funding projects, building community, and making learning resources accessible, we are teaming up to create the digital public infrastructure of tomorrow.

Budget: How much funding will this require?

The biggest part will be hosting costs, as the project is built from several parts:

  • 4 IPFS Gateways (EU,US,Asia)
  • RedisDB
  • Frontend
  • Backend API
  • possibly Elasticsearch (for a more performant search)

It depends mainly on how the Akash prices (fiat as well as deployments) develop since all these services are to run in Akash.

Timeline: What is the timeline for accomplishing this task?

I plan to get the first prototype version in 2~3 weeks. The next stage after will then depend on the user feedback

Team: Are you looking for additional team members?

Will do it by myself for now, if someone wants to support me I look forward to the cooperation.

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

Depending on the news situation every 2 weeks or monthly through reports

Design: Do you have any mock ups or screenshots?

Not yet but looking forward to provide some soon
