Phore Marketplace Development Budget Proposal (43,200 PHR)
We recently completed some upgrades to the search engine that powers the Phore Marketplace which improves search results and adds support for verified moderators and many other new features that are coming in the upcoming releases of the Phore Marketplace. Mateusz and Joe are making great strides in moving towards our next release, which we expect to include some support for decentralized cryptocurrency, verified moderators, and a lot of user experience / user interface improvements. Our goal is to move this forward as quickly as we can towards completing beta testing and conducting a full launch of the Marketplace, which will also include support for buying and selling with multiple cryptocurrencies.
We are also beginning the design for adding a decentralized crowdfunding platform to the Marketplace, allowing censorship-resistant fundraising for people and businesses including independent journalists, artists, and others who want to be able to raise funds without the fear of needing permission from a centralized authority or platform, and without the worry of being de-platformed by payment processors or centralized platforms when their political or other views may not match those of the platform. The vision we have for this would allow anyone a safe place to interact directly with their contributors, and allow their contributors to donate privately without sharing their information with anyone other than the person or business they are supporting.
These funds will be allocated to furthering the Phore Marketplace development efforts. Along with the Synapse architecture, we feel that bringing the full vision of the Phore Marketplace to full production status is critical to the future utility and traction of Phore users by providing real solutions to problems that are not solved well using centralized platforms.
