Project Overview

  1. Describe the project in detail. What is the work that needs to be done and what’s potentially already finished?
    Detailed intro to PepperStake: in our mechanism, the creator creates a project for participants to stake crypto to it, and appoints supervisors to verify the completion of goals. Once participants complete the goal and it is verified, they can get the staked crypto back, otherwise, it goes to beneficiaries that the creator set previously. Additionally, anyone can sponsor any amount of crypto to PepperStake that will be distributed to those who complete the goal.
    Done: an initial website, initial codes enabling core functions (creator-supervisor-participant interaction, sponsor add-on)
    To be done: polished web app, live demo, add-on features (oracles, identity system integration, streaming payments, etc.), beta testing
  2. What’s the timeline for the completion of the different tasks?
    Month 1: add-on features, finish testnet app - beta testing Month 2: audit, polish web apps, finish first use case app Month 3: mainnet deployment, integration to other apps
  3. How will the work be delegated among the team?
    Jmill, backend developer; Lucy, frontend developer; Jiahui, PM/BD.
  4. What costs are involved?
    Costs regarding mainnet deployment Gas fees per transaction Miscellaneous expenses
