Should the following $160,000 grant in the Core Unit category be approved?
This proposal aims to secure a grant from the Decentraland DAO to implement rollup solutions, a scalability upgrade. The project will be divided into three stages, with a budget of $160,000 for each stage. The implementation of rollups will significantly reduce gas fees and transaction speeds, improving the user experience. The proposed project is a cost-effective and efficient solution that will keep the platform competitive and benefit the entire community. We believe that implementing rollups is a crucial step in the development of the platform and hope to collaborate with the Decentraland DAO to bring this upgrade to fruition.
We are writing to submit a proposal for implementing rollups on Decentraland. As you know, Decentraland is one of the leading metaverse platforms, offering users a unique and immersive virtual world experience. However, the platform is currently facing scalability issues, which limit its potential for growth and adoption. We propose that implementing rollups is the best path forward for solving these scalability issues.
Stage 1: Development
In this stage, the rollup solution will be designed and developed. We estimate that this stage will take around 3-6 months, depending on the specific requirements of the project. The proposed budget for this stage is $160,000, which will cover the cost of experienced developers, conducting design and development work, and performing initial testing to ensure that the solution meets the necessary standards of security and performance.
Stage 2: Testing and Deployment
In this stage, the rollup solution will be thoroughly tested to ensure its security, performance, and compatibility with the Decentraland platform. The proposed budget for this stage is also $160,000, which will cover the cost of testing and deployment, including bug fixes, security audits, and other necessary work to ensure the successful launch of the rollup solution.
Stage 3: Maintenance and Upgrades
Once the rollup solution is deployed, it will need to be maintained and upgraded as needed to ensure its continued performance and security. This stage will involve ongoing maintenance, upgrades, and support for the rollup solution. The proposed budget for this stage is also $160,000 per year, which will cover the cost of ongoing maintenance and upgrades, as well as any necessary support for users.
Therefore, the total budget for implementing rollups on Decentraland in these three stages would be $480,000. We understand that this is a significant investment, but we believe that it is necessary to ensure the long-term success of Decentraland and its position as a leading metaverse platform.
In conclusion, we believe that implementing rollups on Decentraland is a crucial step in the development of the platform, and it will significantly improve the user experience by providing faster and cheaper transactions. Decentraland has the potential to become the leading metaverse platform, but it needs to keep up with the latest technologies and solutions to remain competitive. The proposed rollup solution is a cost-effective and efficient way to achieve this goal, and we are confident that it will benefit the entire Decentraland community. Thank you for considering our proposal.
