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 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.

 

Ambition/Intention

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

The ambition of this proposal is to have crown infrastructure costs covered. This proposal’s project is to streamline system administration of the past 4 years into 1 as cost effective operation as possible so any bear market can be survived.

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 almost 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.

 

Risks

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

The migration methods used have so far not impacted the general operation of the Crown Project, once a server is copied it can be tweaked/setup in a sandbox-like environment. This means there is almost no risk involved with the cost-reduction part of this proposal.

The cost coverage part has 1 significant risk: Price decrease.
To try and hold of that risk the requested crown will be turned into FIAT asap. Thereby knowing how much of the cost is covered, so I (edwardmorra) can find other ways to cover the costs.


Funding requirements

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

Monthly costs cut so far.

190 US dollars from digital Ocean culling/migrating

70 US dollars By migrating nextcloud

99 US dollars By migrating Mattermost

125 US dollars by not using Google for mail services anymore

A cost previously paid by a contributor is now part of infrastructure which is our Zoom license.
The digital ocean and google cost had gone up due to applicable tax changing to Dutch.

Communication

How will the project manager communicate with the Crown community? How often? On which dates?

Next proposal will contain an update about the cost situation, besides that @edwardmorra can be pinged in discord and will stay in contact with the community.

 

Added value to the project

Having the infrastructure ready for visibility and operations of the project is what this proposal provides.
