Project Details

Project purpose

Describe the need for your project.

The Crown project needs several IT services to run.
This includes Gitlab for code development, website hosting so new users can find the project and other bitcoin-fork specific services.
This proposal is to cover the costs that this infrastructure currently running.
Besides that we try to cover as much of the costs community member pjcltd has by making services of his hosting company available.



Tell us the potential benefits your project could bring to Crown.

The ambition of this proposal is to have crown infrastructure costs covered.

We are now at a stage where we want to provide continuity in the providing of infrastructure resources to the Crown project.
Whilst having achieved the above, we are continuing to do ongoing security/network improvements to the crown environment within our control. And when opportunities arise to lower the costs we will capitalize on them.

Proposal timetable and turning point(s)

Propose exact start and end dates. What will be the turning points of the project, when do you expect certain achievements? Try to give details with a high time granularity.

Currently the migration work has been completed with a new crown version the cost can be cut more.

Acceptance criteria

Under what circumstances would you call your proposal a success? Try to make this measurable if you can.

This proposal can be called a success when migration and cost cutting doesn’t disturb the network infrastructure. For now it is most important the services keep running.



What risks are involved? What events could upset or cancel your project or its deliverables?

The cost coverage part has 1 significant risk: Price decrease.
To try and hold off that risk the requested crown will be turned into FIAT asap.

Funding requirements

Outline your funding request and how you decided on that amount. Provide calculations if possible.
