Gm although i found the milestone for the stage is promising, the amount of 100k is yet to be justified so if possible can u guys give us extra detail on how the final 100k is formulated?

Hi Awesomenear, big fan! Really appreciate what you guys have done for the ecosystem so far.

Can you provide a bit of what the site’s traction looks like? 100K is a lot and we would want to make sure it’s cost effective. Moreover, the $100K you are proposing is in stables or in REF?

Also, have you guys done this individualized service with any other projects?

Cheers and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Thank you for the question, hh00.
The proposed amount is estimated based on customized milestones which is not a closed list - more can be added during development/maintenance period (2 years); also, there should be a payment plan, be it monthly/quarterly/annually (most likely will be annually for 2022-2023), and we can only bill based on completed milestones, so no fund will be sent until there is actual progress.
We look forward to seeing you during the DAO weekly call later today where we will share a more detailed dev summary (with cost breakdown) on completed milestones to date.

Thank you for your questions, cudam321.near!
We can certainly share some website metrics during the DAO weekly call later today. Hope to see you there :slightly_smiling_face:
Before Ref, we had the pleasure working with Octopus Network last year. With AwesomeNEAR APIs to be introduced next month, we are confident that more projects in the ecosystem will show interest in our services as well.
