Monthly Reports

Conceptual models and specification work using BPMN, PetriNets, and BigraphER progressed. We are setting up a documentation site which will host the specification work. We have workflows incorporating Github, Nix, Nix Flakes, Teraform, AWS. Key aspects of Plutus transaction metadata has been worked on which incorporate a stance on SSI/DIDs and will be applied to a number of other proposal projects building up toward a Retroactive Funding system for DAOs.

A flint-stone experiment using Bonding Curves for a compensation process is being worked on with the Eastern Townhall core team. The aim is to help inform the specification and UX design work by using a real-world example in a controlled manner.

This proposal is a critical building block to a lot of our efforts so is being prioritised over the others until we scale the team. We've done some outreach to local universities and we had an extended meeting with a senior Cloud Native Foundation (Kubernetes) member, initiating a potential collaboration as part of our larger effort.

The start of the project is dependent on other proposals progressing before we work on this proposal— dependent proposals are F7 DeFi+Catalyst 🔥 Retroactive Finance and F7: DAO Treasury Building Blocks. The latter is a fundamental building block for this work and until the larger team is working full-time a lot of our efforts will be prioritised towards that proposal.

Two of the team had personal matters that meant not as much preliminary background work was conducted this month as hoped. Our primary Product/UX designer contracted COVID so that has pushed out his work commitments by a couple of weeks. He will be starting full-time in June. However a small amount of preliminary design research is work proceeding with the Eastern Townhall core team.

Some preliminary planning/design work is being conducted with the Eastern Townhall core team. Also our primary Product/UX designer can only start work part-time until his other commiments have completed.

The completion of the project itself is dependent on other funded proposals progressing a little bit before we activitly start on project. This project also depends on making progress with other fundamental Plutus Development projects funded in F6&F7. See the proposal for more information.

After being funded for a number of proposals in Fund 7 and a related projects with Manatū Taonga, the New Zealand Ministry of Culture and Heritage (MCH), we need to build out a team. We are seeking additional (non-catalyst) funding to do so. Hence scaling the project team/organisation is occupying a lot of our attention at the moment.
