Alliance funding part 2 - pre-proposal discussion


#1

This proposal is to secure some more funding for the ongoing PIVX alliances effort,

I have been pushing PIVX alliances for some months now with my own time and funds, and now that there are budget funds freed up due to the pull back by devs (thanks guys), I will be seeking some funding to relive my own burden,

It has become apparent that other team members still wish to ‘grandfather’ in partnerships, and while this is often fruitful for the project I personally feel it goes against the DECENTRALISED nature of this project, while I cannot force them to use Alliances, more funding could further develop and promote the protocol to a level where outside companies and organisations consider it more binding than the word of any particular developer or marketer in the Core team. That aside I must say that I appreciate the work done by the team to build these partnerships, I just wish they would include the community where possible.

So what is the Alliance protocol?

In case you don’t yet know this short explainer should be useful:

What has been developed via Alliances so far?

1 - Particl alliance (alliance formed and ongoing)
2 - pivx alliance.org website (funded by myself $1k USD) - now has a team page and conference call recordings
3 - Alliances explainer and custom logo (funded myself (135 USD)
4 - Alliance protocol and Packs protocol
5 - 2 conference calls, Link to conference calls page : http://pivxalliance.org/conference-calls/
6 - Numo Alliance passed recently, which had a large amount of pre-discussion including a conference call which was recorded and can be found below

How much is being asked for:
For this proposal I would like 1K PIV per month. This will not be a wage, it will fund the following things

What will funds be used for?
To pay for graphics being made, (assuming no creative is funded - and Rhubarb does not continue to make graphics from the kindness of his heart)
To pay for recording and promotion, we will boosts posts on facebook, reddit and other platforms
To pay for explainers and translations (assuming hannah and her team no longer create them from the kindness of their hearts)
To pay for updates to the website,
To fund further development of the Alliances program including a Roadmap,
There has also been some talk of building a federation of PIVX forks, this funding will allow me to further investigate this idea
Working on some major alliance including a Credit card style hardware wallet, the Greek salvation Army and early talks with some other established crypto projects.

Besides these expenses, I expect the following to be delivered each month:

monthly conference call recorded 
Help with pushing alliances
Regular updates to website, including bi-monthly reports on alliances
press releases
facebook promotion

What if it’s not funded?
Will go ahead anyway, but in previous scaled back form

What will happen to the funds that are not used?
They will be held in this address ’ same as proposal address ’
If the funds are not spent they will be saved for a time when they are needed for Alliance related business.
If the amount in the alliance fund goes above 10k then it will be staked in piv.
There is currently over 800 PIV still in the alliances kitty.

Who is on the Alliance Team?
Crypto S.I, Gets and Buer
have had help from Crypto HB,

Only seeing this now.
Good idea to get this working one way or another.
Just a quick heads up that the link to the pivxalliance.org site is broken (perhaps not intentionally a link?)
Good luck :+1:
