** This replaces the AllianceSENTy1 proposal, which had erroneously been submitted for 12 budget cycles (instead of 1).

PLEASE DOWNVOTE HASH 839412adb1b55434dbc51a3c4363fca0103ba52ba8804416bc7f34e5b816f080 (for proposal AllianceSentyr1)


This document outlines a new proposed Alliance between PIVX and Sentinel. 10 PIV is being requested as this is the minimum amount that the proposal process allows (it is currently not possible to spend 50 PIV to submit a proposal and ask for 0 PIV). The overall goal is to foster a working relationship between these two projects (which have mutual works in the privacy realms). The proposal for an alliance starts with the human layer first (cross-promotion of projects via social media, and other platforms) to increase both PIVX and SENT visibility. The goal is to increase awareness of both projects inside of their respective communities, as well as demonstrate outwardly the mutual support of the projects for each other. The next layer of the alliance would be to explore PIVX using/white labeling SENT’s dVPN and a possible PIVX bridge for the dVPN. While this layer is not set in stone at the current moment of this proposal, both representatives from PIVX and SENT felt there is enough benefit (and mutual support) to submitting an alliance that would bring more attention and awareness to PIVX and SENT, as well as provide more uses cases for the PIVX cryptocurrency (and possible blockchain).

What is Sentinel?
Sentinel Network is a network layer that enables a true p2p and decentralized applications and resources marketplace. Sentinel enables anyone to create Public and Private networks that provide access to both free and incentivized, and also payment method agnostic (pre-paid/escrow/post-paid) services (dApps) & distributed resources, enabling its clients to become both producers and consumers in the network.

Why are we proposing Alliance again?
This alliance is intended to not only bring more attention and awareness to PIVX as a whole, but bring more use cases to the PIVX
Cryptocurrency. SENT (Sentinel Network) utilizes locking, staking and multi-sig directly from Tendermint core and Cosmos SDK, thus, as a different blockchain core provides via an alliance future potential for interoperability bridges and more for PIVX. Additionally, SENT currently runs a ‘decentralized’ open-source provable VPN or a ‘dVPN’, which post alliance passing will be discussions into possibly white-labelling this platform for PIVX (and/or providing ways for PIVX to interact into this).

Key deliverables


Key deliverables from SENT are social media support, additional marketing of big and important releases/announcements, willingness to manage the SENT-ALLIANCE
Discord channel, additional development product testing (enhanced testing with a team familiar with the technology), an introduction of PIVX to their community and networks, shared networking & business development, exploration of PIVX-dVPN integrations.

Shared support of relevant social media, additional marketing for important SENT releases/announcements, shared networking & business
