Solution

Allow projects using Paima Engine (which supports apps, games and soon zk protocols) to leverage "volitions": systems where users can choose whether or not to post the data onchain or elsewhere

Problem:

A lot of apps have data-heavy use cases, especially with the growing trend of zero-knowledge cryptography, L2 solutions and onchain gaming. However, currently these use-cases cost too much in fees.

[IMPACT] Please describe your proposed solution.

Currently, many growing fields in the blockchain space sometimes require kilobytes of data per transaction to work. Notably, zk cryptography, L2s and web3 gaming

Since these L2s and web3 gaming are both fairly high-frequency use-cases (transactions happen often), solutions like IPFS are not well equipped to store and pin all the different files. A common solution to this is to use a “Data Availability Layer” (DA Layer) such as Celestia or Avail that is optimized for these kinds of use-cases. However, using a DA Layer comes with a disadvantage because you have to trust the DA layer to function properly, and is generally more expensive and slower than posting the data directly to the underlying L1

To tackle this problem in Paima, we propose allowing games and apps using Paima to use “Volitions”, which try to get the best of both worlds. They allow users to choose in which case they post their data directly on the L1, and in which case they post their data on the DA Layer. This allows clients to optimize for the best experience

Notably, we plan to integrate Avail Project (<https://www.availproject.org/>) first as we believe they have the highest synergy with the Cardano ecosystem: they are based on Polkadot (whose underlying conesus is inspired by Ouroboros), and they have invested in a research-based approach working with new primitives like Coded Merkel Trees (see link below) to make their technology competitive

Notably, the plan for integration will have the following steps:

  1. Enable Paima to follow both the settlement layer and the DA light client at the same time
  2. Allow a way for clients to choose whether or not data gets posted to the settlement layer or the DA layer
  3. Allow merging L1 and DA layer data into a single stream for Paima apps to handle

This proposal has the potential of bridging the gap between the current data hike system. After perusing through the feasibility I realise that this project is full of experience and seasoned cardinal blockchain ecosystem veterans who have done it before and won't do it again. The reason I say the project is feasible as because of the track records off this is back and famous Studios who are world-renowned companies in cardinal eco-system that have a record time history of delivering on there projects what links attached for verification. They also have brief but explicit goals which main objective is to enable project that are relatively data hungry to still be deployable through the cardano ecosystem through paima.They also intend to allow merging L1 and DA layer data into a single stream for paima to handle which will streamlined things and further lead to a massive explosion of accessibility to the cardano ecosystem by broaden it bass and horizons and so I do agree that this project be adapted and funded for the benefits of the cardano echo system. Because they have elaborated an in-depth knowledge about this proposal submitted and have done a breakdown of their milestones and that is achievable and they also have a moderate budget that will Cater for the success of the project.

Assuming that the team members are being part of dcSpark team, and having important project implemented into the Cardano blockchain it looks like the team has the technical background and the necessary skills to implement this project. Unfortunately the milestones are presented briefly without a time span and without outputs and deliverables. The only thing we know is that the project will last for 10 months and it seems that some supporting documentations is missing from the proposal. I rate the feasibility of this project low.

It is possible to integrate Data Availability Layer (DA Layer) Avail into the Cardano ecosystem through Paima. The development team (dcSpark and Paima Studios) has a strong reputation in the Cardano community, is experienced in similar technology, and has a history of successful implementation of Catalyst proposals in the past. The main goal is to solve the problem of big data processing in blockchain, especially in L2s and web3 gaming. The problem-solving approach is logical, by integrating the Avail DA Layer into Paima. The milestones have been clearly described and closely related to the goal with three specific phases defined, including: allowing Paima games & apps to assign a DA Layer to track (Avail), updating Updated the Paima library to support selective posting of data on L1 or DA Layer, and to allow merging of L1 and DA Layer data into a single stream. The finished product of the project is to provide sample code and reference documents for developers, ensuring testability and measurement through the number of transactions using the DA Layer integration.

  • The implementation plan of the proposal is completely sketchy and lacks detailed milestones. The community cannot audit the implementation process at all.
  • The proposed budget is 270000ADA so it will need at least 4 milestones as specified by fund10. Therefore, the proposal needs to re-make its detailed plan according to that regulation in case the proposal is approved.
  • Output and tracking source not stated in the proposal. If the community is interested in dcSpark, it can be checked. However, within the proposed scope, this factor is unacceptable.
  • The only confidence in the feasibility of the proposal is the team implementing it. They are very popular and contribute a lot to the Cardano ecosystem. In fact, they always successfully complete the projects they have committed to.

The team includes well-known companies in the Cardano ecosystem, dcSpark and Paiman Studios, which have a long history of delivering Catalyst proposals. Also, the team has experience with similar technology, as they have worked on similar projects before. The main goal of the project is to allow relatively data-hungry projects to still be deployed into the Cardano ecosystem through Paiman. The team is confident that the project is technically feasible because they have a lot of experience with this type of technology and have also talked to the Avail team about their plans. However, talking about the project roadmap, that is the weak point of this section. The project team provides about important elements but not tied to milestones nor detailed breakdown of those tasks. The deliverables referred to are implementations and references. Because of the lack of roadmap, milestones, deadlines, KPIs, metrics and definition of success after each project development milestone. Despite confidence in the team's competence, the roadmap does not provide enough information to audit its performance, therefore, I rate this criterion 3/5

The lack of in-depth technical details in the proposal raises concerns about the feasibility of the integration and the team's ability to execute the project successfully. Integration of a Data Availability Layer (DA Layer) like Avail into the Paima ecosystem is a complex task that requires careful consideration of various technical challenges.

Without a clear breakdown of the technical challenges, it becomes difficult for stakeholders to assess the team's understanding of the complexities involved and their ability to overcome potential obstacles. The proposal should provide a comprehensive overview of the integration process, outlining the specific technical components that need to be addressed, such as data synchronization, smart contract interactions, and data retrieval mechanisms.

Furthermore, the lack of discussion on potential risks and mitigation strategies is a significant oversight. Every project, especially one involving complex integrations, carries inherent risks that could impact its success. Risks such as data integrity issues, security vulnerabilities, or compatibility conflicts with existing components should be identified and addressed in the proposal.

A more comprehensive and detailed technical plan is essential to instill confidence in the project's feasibility. This plan should include a timeline for each milestone, with clear and specific tasks and dependencies. Additionally, the proposal should outline the technical expertise of the team members and how their skills align with the project's requirements.

Including a proof of concept or a small-scale prototype demonstrating the integration process would further enhance the feasibility assessment. This would showcase the team's capabilities and provide stakeholders with tangible evidence of progress and technical proficiency.

Overall, a more in-depth technical plan with clear milestones, risk assessment, and proof of concept would demonstrate the team's preparedness to tackle the challenges involved and provide stakeholders with a higher level of confidence in the proposal's feasibility and successful execution

As we already know about team headed by Sebastien, Nicoloas and Robert with renowned companies like dcSpark and Paima. They have been working in catalyst from F1 -F2 and being funded every round and delivering all projects making them having a outstanding experience and more than capable capacity to complete this proposal. The dCspark and Paima have given tons of contribution no doubt there involvement makes project more risk free and millstones can be achieved with there resources.
The requested time 8 months looks achievable and as it enables games and apps to specify DA layer makes it efficient . I strongly agree with feasiblity.

The track record of dcSpark and Paima Studios in the Cardano ecosystem and their track record of completing Catalyst proposals provide strong evidence that the proposer is capable of completing the project with high levels of trust and accountability. The project's technical viability is also underlined, supported by their knowledge of related technologies and their interactions with the Avail team about their ideas. To boost this part even more, the proposal might include more information regarding the precise technical difficulties and potential hazards they might run into during the integration process.

I am considering the feasibility of the proposal, I am told that the plan and implementation of the team consists of 3 stages, this is presented quite briefly, it is quite different from the proposals I have evaluated. previous price. It's short, but it's pretty concise, and the reader can get a pretty good idea of what the team plans to do when it's funded. However, I still have one more question to better understand the feasibility of the proposal is if not funded in Fund10, does the team plan to continue implementing this proposal? I think it would be much better if you were to be more specific about the plan and how to do it. In the blockchain field, dcSpark and Sebastien Guillemot are already very famous and reputable, but still need to be more specific about some items in this proposal? Perhaps because you are too busy to write such a proposal? Regarding the resources needed to execute, I don't have any doubts about the ability of Sebastien Guillemot and the team as they have proven themselves to be very good people so far. In fact, there have been many important achievements in the blockchain space: typically Layer 2 products. On the technical side, the team openly uses the Paima Engine (supports apps, games, and the zk protocol coming soon). I would like to suggest that it would be much better if the team described it more carefully so that readers could understand this field of technology. Especially for those who are new to blockchain and new to Community Review. If more funding is needed, will the team be willing to come up with a plan to verify? Although I know you are always very busy with your projects. In summary, I evaluate the feasibility of this proposal as acceptable, I always hope that even though the team has a great reputation, with a public proposal in front of the community, it should still be concretized and detailed. more for everyone to understand. Acceptable answers. 3 stars.

I must confess that there's a clarity of break down to the budgetary allocation to this project which looks more feasible an achievable. The project also have a number of reputable organisations and individuals that are capable of making this project a success, some of them are dcSpark that is in the development support and Paima Studios is advising on the use-cases. The project has also indicated value for money us it's intend to bring much onboard by the willful increase of adoption of relatively data-heavy use-cases like zk and gaming in the Cardano ecosystem, which will drastically increases the attractiveness of the Cardano ecosystem and also unlocks more business opportunities for surrounding communities and the world at large which would in the end brighten the fortunes and stakes of cardano eco-system in the blockchain. I hereby agree and submit my suggestion that this proposal be adapted and funded as it be holds greater potential of increasing the cardano ecosystem community if funded and executed stated.

The requested budget of 270000 ADA is broken into 3 items of "20k" without knowing what they represent and if it is in ADA or some FIAT currency. So it's very unclear what amount is to be spent and for what activities/resources. The proposer should provide relevant sources in support of team members experience so any outsider will find easy to understand who the team members are and what they do in the project. I rate the delivered value for money as low.

The proposal is transparent and clear with specific deliverables such as sample code and developer references. Evaluate project success based on the number of transactions using DA Layer integration, which helps to check and measure effectiveness. Detailed and reasonable budget analysis, closely related to project milestones; Budget details of 20k USD for each phase of the project are presented, showing a level of transparency and clarity in the use of resources. Proposal team (dcSpark and Paima Studios) has knowledge, experience in project management and reliable cash flow management. The value this proposition brings to the Cardano ecosystem is the ability to deploy cost-effective and efficient data-heavy applications, attract businesses and users, and help grow the Cardano ecosystem. Although there is no specific quantification of the value, the success of DA Layer integration applications can be measured through the number of transactions and the proliferation of applications using this feature.

  • The value of money of the proposal lies in the great potential if the project is developed in the long term. Therefore, the proposed budget figure is reasonable from the Reviewer's point of view.
  • Although the project value can be great, the community still needs transparent information to check the process of using the project's budget.
  • The information presented in this section is very sketchy and not as regulated by fund10. In my opinion, the proposal needs to detail the work according to 4 milestones and allocate the budget according to working hours.

The required budget for this project is 60,000ADA and is rather sketchy. Therefore, there is not enough basis to judge whether the requested amount represents a good value for money for the treasury. To address this concern, I recommend that the proposed team provide a more detailed project budget that clearly outlines each aspect of the project and how the funds will be used. In addition, it is important to clearly explain team composition, including the roles and responsibilities of each team member, as well as their relevant experience and qualifications. This will help demonstrate the value of the project to the Treasury and the community by showing how the funding will be used effectively. Furthermore, it would be helpful to provide a more specific roadmap for the project, outlining specific milestones, deadlines, and expected outcomes. This will provide a clear understanding of how the funding will be spent over time and how the community can expect to see the project grow and progress.

The budget allocation in the proposal lacks detailed justification, and this transparency is crucial for stakeholders to understand how the funds will be used effectively. A more itemized breakdown of the budget is necessary to instill confidence and demonstrate the value for money.

For example, the proposal should provide a clear breakdown of how the funds will be allocated to specific development tasks, research, testing, documentation, and other relevant activities for each milestone. This could include details on the number of hours or resources dedicated to each task, the cost per hour/resource, and the total budget for that task.

Furthermore, providing a detailed roadmap and specific deliverables for each milestone is essential for demonstrating the value generated by the investment. Each milestone should have measurable outcomes that align with the project's objectives. For instance, Milestone 1 could include deliverables such as "Enable Paima to follow the settlement layer and DA light client simultaneously" and "Update Paima client libs to support data posting to settlement layer or DA layer."

Additionally, milestones should be time-bound and include a clear timeline for completion. This allows stakeholders to track progress and assess whether the project is on track to meet its goals.

A more transparent and itemized budget allocation, along with a clear roadmap and specific deliverables for each milestone, would enhance the value for money of the proposal. It would provide stakeholders with a better understanding of how the funds will be used and the expected outcomes at each stage of the project, ultimately increasing confidence in the project's feasibility and success.

The proposer requested amount of 270K ADA which is around 60K$ for enabling paima games, support choosing data to get posted or not and merging L1 and DA layer in 8 months will surely be helpfull for cardano community. But I know they have dCspark backing and Paima they have completed many projects an d have huge experience in managing millions of ADA by previous funding's, But they have nit explained detailed budget breakdown just given reference which says 20K$ 3 times in budget area and not explaining how they will be using funds so i decided to deduct 2 stars. As data is missing I feel project value for money is medium.

Uncertainty exists in the budget breakdown, which lists three things as "20k" without providing further details or breakdowns of the allotted amounts. Due to the absence of specifics, it is difficult to assess the proposal's financial worth to the Cardano ecosystem. The budget breakdown could be more open and thorough, precisely stating how the money will be divided among various tasks and activities connected to the integration of the Avail Project. The proposal's benefit to the Cardano community may be more clearly expressed with enhanced clarity.

Speaking of Value for Money, we need to first consider their team, experience, attachments. This, needless to be mentioned, can be trusted with dcSpark and Sebastien Guillemot, because they are very reputable and capable factors in the blockchain field. In this proposal, the team has demonstrated with specific documents, homepage and videos, helping readers to easily visualize and increasing the community's trust in the team. I appreciate the publicity criteria that the team has taken. However, as mentioned, I always wish the team was more explicit in demonstrating the plan and roadmap. If the route is attached to the months of the year for easy monitoring, the better. The total time to implement the proposal is 10 months, I think this is a reasonable amount of time to implement such a large workload proposal. For the rest, recommending KPIs is a luxury for busy teams like dcSpark and Sebastien Guillemot. Anyway, it is my wish and suggestion to make it more complete. The remaining problem has been clearly described with the appropriate solution, concise and concise. The thing I would like to comment on the most is on the budget allocation. The budget listed is too short when dividing each stage of work is 20k. This is really hard for the community to verify. I know that every job the team does is well worth the money, but for a professional proposal, the team needs to add more than this. In general, the team presented Value for Money at an overview level, briefly, without going into detailed analysis. For a prestigious group like dcSpark, I can accept that. Acceptable answers. 3 stars.

Has this project clearly demonstrated in all aspects of the proposal that it will positively impact the Cardano Ecosystem?

Commenter gravatar
  • This proposal offers a very good solution for ecosystem development.
  • It could turn out to be a tool with great potential. Will need to explain in detail to the community as this is in the ZK-rollup scope:
    1. One of the biggest problems when developing L2 scaling solutions is "data availability" issue. Because of this problem, we see that Plasma or lightning networks can hardly grow further to this day.
    1. "data availability" is divided into 2 solutions that are data stored off-chain or on-chain. a. off-chain: low cost, fast verification but less secure. b. on-chain: the opposite of the above.
    1. Volitions: that term is not new when it was introduced by Starware and is a combination of zk-rollup with validium. In other words, this is like a hybrid tool so that users can choose to store their data off-chain or on-chain.
  • The reason for this proposal to create great benefits as well as a good impact on the ecosystem is. Currently, the Cardano ecosystem is lacking detailed solutions to develop ZK-rollup technology for Dapps. Or, more precisely, the lack of ZK-rollup platforms or networks that dapps can build on.
  • I only have 1 suggestion for this proposal which is a project built only for Paima studio and limited in scope to the game field. If the proposal continues to be developed and offers a comprehensive solution for the whole ecosystem, this is a very cool project.

The project team identified a real problem: many applications and games require a lot of data to function, which can lead to high transaction costs. The solution proposed by the project team is to allow customers to choose whether to post their data directly to L1 or on a Data Availability Layer (DA Layer), allowing customers to optimize for the best experience . The project plans to merge the L1 and DA Layer data into a single stream for the Paima application to process, allowing Paima to monitor both the settlement layer and the DA light client at the same time. The success of the project will be measured by the number of transactions leveraging the DA layer integration. The proposed solution has the potential to significantly impact the Cardano ecosystem by expanding the use cases of decentralized applications and reducing the barriers to entry for projects with high-volume use cases. use lots of data. The output of the project is to share a sample tutorial on how to integrate Avail into the app/game. The community can track the project's progress on the dcSpark website https://dcspark.io/grants

The proposal to integrate the Data Availability Layer (DA Layer) Avail into the Cardano ecosystem through Paima is promising many important benefits. This solution solves the problem of storing and processing big data in blockchain transactions, especially in zk cryptography, Layer 2 (L2s), and web3 gaming applications. Applications and games built on Paima can efficiently and cost-effectively deploy data-heavy tasks. This opens up many new business opportunities and makes the Cardano ecosystem more attractive to the community of users and businesses. Evaluate project success based on the number of transactions using DA Layer integration. The implementation plan includes three specific phases to provide sample code and reference for developers to help them integrate Avail DA Layer into their apps and games.

The suggestion tackles a sizable issue that data-intensive applications in the blockchain area are facing. The project intends to save expenses and improve user experience by giving projects utilizing Paima Engine the option to employ "volitions" and decide whether to publish data on the settlement layer or the Data Availability Layer (DA Layer). The Cardano ecosystem will gain from the Avail Project's successful integration into Paima since it allows data-intensive use cases at a reasonable cost, boosting the feasibility of diverse business concepts. The impact appears positive, particularly in encouraging the adoption of data-intensive use cases like gaming and zk cryptography, which can enhance the ecosystem's appeal and open up new prospects.

I see the proposal to solve the goal in Challange Development & Infrastructure and clearly state the problem to be solved is the high cost of using zero-knowledge cryptography, Layer 2 data & online games. This is the correct assessment of the team, who have a lot of gray matter in building high-tech technology related to blockchain. This problem is relatively new and at an advanced level, it has a technological importance. If the problem is solved, it will greatly increase the value of the Cardano ecosystem because cost savings is always the top priority in any model. I appreciate the impact of the proposal, and have no doubt its ability to scale and tackle challenges in the future because I see it as a whole new unexplored (or already) piece of land. exploited but very little), there is still a lot of potential to solve, build and develop. Specifically in favor of the Cardano ecosystem is the proposal that could allow games and applications written in Paima to deploy data-intensive use cases at relatively low cost - the focus here is on games and many applications related to Paima Engine. We've always known about the ZK protocol and Layer 2's popularity and usefulness, and now that there's another proposal for cost-effective improvements, I think that's really cool. Thus, in terms of impact, I highly recommend the team's suggestion. Great answer. 5 stars.

The proposer Sebastien says about the ongoing problems related data-heavy use cases with growing trend each day in onchain gaming making it to cost way more fees with growing demand. The proposed solution to make current projects use Paima engine to give permissions or choices to where users decide to publish there data onchian or not which is interesting proposal. As the impact explained in growing fields consumption and required data crossing KBs per transaction is huge especially if they are in cryptography and web3 gaming's. So allowing Paima to follow both settlement layer will help a lot. As this will benefit the cardano ecosystem gaming and allowing more apps to implement. I strongly agree with impact.

The proposal aims to have a positive impact on the Cardano community by enabling data-heavy use cases, such as zero-knowledge cryptography and on-chain gaming, to be deployed on the Cardano ecosystem through Paima. By integrating a Data Availability Layer (DA Layer) like Avail, the proposal seeks to reduce transaction fees and optimize performance for such use cases, making them more viable and attractive to developers and businesses.

If successful, this integration could drive greater adoption of data-intensive applications on Cardano, leading to increased activity and diversity within the ecosystem. It could attract new developers and users who are interested in building or utilizing data-heavy applications, thus contributing to the growth and expansion of the Cardano community.

However, the impact may depend on the adoption and implementation of the proposed solution by developers and businesses. Additionally, the proposal could benefit from providing more specific metrics or targets to measure the success and impact of the integration

I must begin my commending the proposer and his team for the yeoman's job done to the cardano ecosystem. There has been high price in data usage currently which is the headache of every country across the globe preventing as many as possible not to be able to access internet. But with this projects in the pipeline it's seeks as it were to allow projects using Paima Engines which support apps and games and will soon be supporting ZK protocols to Leverage volition systems where the users can choose whether or not to post data on chain or elsewhere. This current system is highly data demanding but with this proposal if should be adapted and funded it will break the autonomy of the current system to give participants the chance to decide which way or where to post and where to share their data. This will a massive impact to the cardano ecosystem because many will get access to less costly data but faster in doing business and sharing of data and so this will dramatically lead to the surge in creating accounts on the cardano ecosystem blockchain, transactions of business across cardano ecosystem, many onboarding on to Cardano ecosystem by way of using this volition and DL2. This project further seeks to address the problem of the growing fields in the blockchain space where some of the apps sometimes require kilobytes of data per transaction to work, examples are the zk cryptography, L2s and web3 gaming's which are high frequency games. I therefore conclude by entreating cardano ecosystem block chain to adapt and fund this project as it will be of tremendous impact to the blockchain ecosystem.

The project will be partially open source and it is unsure what part of it will be of such thing - "reference implementations to all the integrations" is presented in a vague manner without knowing exactly what is to be shared as open source. The project has some consistency and could bring some impact to the Cardano ecosystem if it will succeed. Another metric that could be helpful is the average transaction fee as one of the problem to be solved is reducing the fee for some kind of transactions. I found the level of impact to be acceptable.
