Monero Fund Committee Minutes from 2022-09-27

Present: Rucknium, Kayaba, Deverick, monerobull


After our previous fundraise, we've had a lot of discussion about simplifying the donation process. The community has an adverse reaction to our usage of Gofundme for tracking donations, along with handling fiat donations. Obtaining a Monero address, or another supported cryptocurrency address, is also obfuscated. This leaves two goals.

1) Immediately stating cryptocurrency donation addresses on announcement posts 2) Placing a trackable counter on the announcement post

This will also reduce the amount of labor required by increasing our automation. While we've previously discussed a solution by a community member, and have historically discussed building our own solution, we believe BTCPay will be a standing solution usable for our purposes. Not only is it designed to track deposits, it can also provide a tally over simple HTTP requests, making it highly integrateable. The immediate focus will be on setting this up.

Monero Documentation RFP

Hearing community requests for greater documentation, we are considering placing a call for proposals to attract writers to provide said documentation. This would greatly help parties integrate, and therefore adopt, Monero. A list of potentially relevant developers has also been started.
