Hi, I’m obviously Norton, and as I didn’t find a better category for describing my development endevours, I would like to put it into the proposals category signifying that ultimately it is a proposal of some sort, but a special kind of proposal, a proposal to me myself rather than a request for goodies from the community. If this deserves a special category as JVs or Projects, please move it to there and sorry for my noobness (but please don’t move to dApps, it’s so lonely there).
So… let’s get started! My pitch is:
Write a Gnosis clone for freeTON.
In particular, I see it as a multisig web wallet which allows business people to manage their crypto assets as an organization. You know, onboarding employees, firing employees, assigning roles, adding weights, limiting spending amounts, limiting the timeframe to commit operations, drawing fancy reports with cornflower charts and all this corporate stuff that a typical sane and healthy crypto geek is unaware of.
Why would anybody need this?
Sooner or later busines comes to this blockchain and will require some convenient and easy to use tools to share value between parties with the necesary level of transparency and reporting.
Why does this topic even bother me?
Eh… Firstly, I enjoy learning. And my biggest confession is that I don’t know anything about Solidity,
smart contracts (eh, these ICO solidity templates to quickly create a token back in 2017 do not count) and about FreeTON (gosh, I hope for soon rebranding). Still… I enjoy learning, and the good news is that I’m not a stranger to programming in general (~14+ years of coding here and there).
When I start with a new tech, I usually code something useful and simple. Yes. Simple. Sorry, 20+ devs of Gnosis, but currently I do not see big technical challenges in the implementation. Yes, potentially a fare share of business logic and LOC, but… not a rocket science.
Yeah-yeah, mostly it is a Dunning–Kruger effect, and that’s why this topic is so important to me: To get back to it in a year and track my progress, to share my learnings along the learning curve and hopefully help other developers dive into this amazing blockchain and create more exciting dApps and services.
I’ll try to commit to updating this thread at least once a week and sharing my progress and concerns. It will keep me delivering and fighting procrastination. Of course, all my code will be publicly available and under MIT. Please note that I have a 9-to-5 job and this project is my hobby, so don’t expect a Ferarri speed.
Still, I’m not sure if this is the right format and the right forum for sharing such stories. If all good, I’ll update you the next week. If not, most likely this topic will be removed
The next time I’ll share my thoughts on the implementation and post the first bunch of helpful links I’ve received.
Anyway, good luck and happy upcoming week!
