Looking back at it, I feel that the amount of work and effort put in + the value provided has been more than the allocated WarpDrive funds. I’ve been encouraged to seek reimbursement for some of this work via A-Z.
Here’s a rough breakdown of how time has been spent on Zenon Tools so far.
Breakdown of hours used:
Wireframes, design, planning - 60h
Web UI implementation first with Flutter, then with Angular + manual testing - 160h
Backend service for caching and refining market data, APR data, PancakeSwap data etc. - 60h
API implementation and management - 30h
Website hosting, server and node management - 10h
NoM indexer and database - 50h
Portfolio dashboard demo - 10h
Server and hosting costs for the past 6 months: ~$500
Total hours worked in the past 6-7 months: ~380h (at least)
Didn’t include the hours used for Pillar Tracker in this.
WarpDrive funds: 14,583 QSR
Total donations: 1,135 ZNN (thank you to all donators )
Looking at A-Z proposals that are in the same range of estimated man-hours required, the funding requests are 5,000 ZNN + 50,000 QSR.
Following their example I would request 5,000 ZNN + 50,000 QSR and use the funds to spawn a Sentinel. The Sentinel’s rewards would be used to fund a treasury for Zenon Tools.
To be clear, this proposal is not about any new features for Zenon Tools, just “back pay” for the work already delivered.
Kidding Your tools have been tremendously helpful and extremely simple to use. I do think without your pillar tracker tool we would have many more pillars offline than we do today. I probably would have said yes anyway but using funds to secure the network and fund further work - I will vote yes.
Great tool, supporting your initiative! Would it be possible to add a few URL paths when selecting dropdown options in the calculator i.e. zenon.tools/calculator/sentinel or zenon.tools/calculator/pillar (as you select each dropdown option). This would allow direct-linking to each type of calculator. Could be useful in outbound settings when promoting yields.
The traffic was around 2-3 times higher at the start of this year but has come down now, probably affected by the general market trend. There are around 50 to 150 unique visitors per day. We’re still a pretty small community so no crazy traffic yet.
Thank you! That sounds like a good idea and should be doable. I’ll have to look into it.
