Past Contributions Prior to Last Month

Last Month’s Contributions

  • Provided extensive technical support in Blocknet Discord and Telegram support channels

  • Performed extensive QA testing and gave extensive QA feedback

  • Liaison work between Blocknet and Anyswap to arrange aaBLOCK bridge

  • Doing my best to drive progress towards creation of an army of arbitrage bots focused on increasing liquidity on BlockDX. Just got a new c++ dev started on a feature for XBridge which will facilitate this effort. (The old dev working on this is not responding.)

  • Tested aaBLOCK bridging on Anyswap & set up initial aaBLOCK/AVAX trading pair on Pangolin

  • Helped with testing of tools for automatically setting up and maintaining SPV wallets on Service Nodes. Also, learning these tools myself so I can document them later.

  • Created a document on how to buy aaBLOCK on Pangolin and redeem it for native BLOCK on Any-swap

  • Submitted Pull Requests to Ava Labs to include Blocknet logo & list aaBLOCK on Pangolin DeFi token list. aaBLOCK is now at the top of Pangolin DeFi list, since it’s sorted alphabetically :slight_smile:

  • Refactored aBLOCK document to emphasize mechanics of buying aBLOCK on Uniswap and redeeming it for BLOCK on Anyswap

    Docs Portal

    • Added instructions for recovering XLite private keys using 12 word mnemonic passphrase
    • many misc documentation refinements here and there.

Future planned Contributions to Blocknet

Docs Portal

  • Add final screenshot images to partial order trading instructions when partial-order-enabled BlockDX is released, then publish the instructions
  • Add instructions for using Coin Control feature in Blocknet wallet
  • Explain in terms of UTXOs why BlockDX balance sometimes drops significantly when an order is placed. Also explain how to avoid this by splitting UTXOs.
  • Add explanation what to do when Error: “The specified transaction information is bad, please review.” and/or “Not enough coin inputs selected to cover this transaction.”
  • Add instructions how to handle various BlockDX anomalous cases like, “Order Stuck Pending”
  • Add more details to instructions for contributing to the Docs Portal
  • Update SuperBlock schedule
  • Add instructions how to upgrade Blocknet wallet (currently, the only instructions are “install-from-scratch”)
  • Copy aBLOCK & aaBLOCK documentation into the main docs portal
  • Add instructions how to split address UTXOs to optimize staking rewards.
  • Add instructions for setting up staking on a headless linux VPS
  • Create ELI5 document for setting up EXR SNode & Hydra SNode
  • Generally keep the docs up to date with ongoing development.

This proposal is for 35 hours @ 12 BLOCK / hr + reimbursement for 30 BLOCK expense incurred testing redemption of BLOCK from aaBLOCK + 10 BLOCK submission fee = 460 BLOCK
(Using a BLOCK price of $3.53, which is the average price over the last 3 months.)
