MobileCoin launched new bounties for the open source developer community on Gitcoin making it easy for over 312,000 active developers to work with MobileCoin – and grow the ecosystem of apps and integrations for MobileCoin. Gitcoin is a community of builders, creators, and protocols at the center of open web ecosystems. Gitcoin’s community is creating infrastructure for Web 3 — a diverse range of tools, technologies, and networks that enable people to work for the open internet. MobileCoin is using Gitcoin to fund projects, build community, and teaming up with the Gitcoin community to create the future of digital payments.
MobileCoin is offering bounties for developers who find bugs and security issues, as well as create new features and integrations. Several new bounties will be announced over the next few weeks and months. Some of the use cases that will be published on Gitcoin include:
At a high level, the goal is to create a new block explorer which connects to the Full Service API. The block explorer should allow a user to safely enter their private keys to query the block explorer for relevant data about their own transactions.
Currently, the MobileCoin Foundation’s Block Explorer is an open source block explorer providing detailed blockchain data across the MobileCoin Mainnet. This block explorer also supports Tor, and is tracking-free. Right now, the block explorer runs off of the MobileCoinD API, but we are deprecating this project and refreshing it to run on the Full Service API.
You can apply to build the new blockchain explorer on Gitcoin.
The goal of the plugins project is to enable a payments option for MobileCoin during checkout on the online shopping platform, WooCommerce. The end-users of this plugin should be able to add the plugin to their eCommerce store to accept and process payments using the MobileCoin (MOB) cryptocurrency. MobileCoin’s blockchain can process payments in under 5 seconds with negligible transaction fees (0.0004 MOB).
MobileCoin’s core engineering team has already done much of the development and released an example plugin for the popular WooCommerce store for WordPress to accept MOB as a payment method. You can find the open source code for the plugin on GitHub.
This plugin is still in the development phase, and we are seeking developers to take over this project and update the plugin so that it can be used successfully by online stores on WordPress.
