The LiquidApps grant and bounty program was created with the purpose of attracting both entrepreneurs and developers into the DAPP Network ecosystem to showcase DAPP Network technology and advance its awareness and use cases. The grant and bounty program allows for not only the showcasing of diverse use-cases for the DAPP Network, but also the creation or improvements for new or existing DAPP services.

We are excited to announce the latest round of bounties being offered to the DAPP Network community. A total of 1,175,000 DAPPs are being offered as potential rewards to the developer community!

Six New Developer Bounty Opportunities!


EdgeOS, Immortal dApps, Interoperability, DAPP Network on EVM, and LiquidChains

The text outlined below was derived from the transcript from the #TALAMA session in the DAPP Network Telegram channel on August 9. Some minor edits were made for conciseness and clarity. For full context from the entire AMA, we suggest listening to the audio version on the LiquidApps YouTube channel. Each question listed below also contains a direct hyperlink to the timestamp on the audio relating to it.

What is EdgeOS and where did the concept for it originate from? (00:3:00)

EdgeOS evolved from early services from the DAPP Network, LiquidDocker and generic services for computation and running and offloading resources for applications, offloading it from blockchain. It started from that, and…


Two weeks ago LiquidApps announced the first ever DAPP Network Meme contest. There were numerous submissions from the community, all of which were hilarious and very creative. All of the submissions were much appreciated. Thank you to everyone who got involved! Stayed tuned for more contests just like this one.

Out of all of the submissions, the LiquidApps team memebers (pun intended) and close affiliates created a shortlist of the best ones and then held an internal vote to determine who the winners would be.

So without further ado, here are the winners!

Ethereum’s Handbook of the Universal Bridging Framework and Middleware of Services

The stakes have never been higher.

While the scaling challenges of base-layer blockchains are nothing new, the growth of the DeFi sector, especially on Ethereum, has brought a newfound sense of urgency to the quest for scale. In the race to remake the financial infrastructure of tomorrow, large corporations hold a commanding lead over disruptive DeFi startups. Optimizing for decentralization comes at the cost of enhanced scalability (to understand why this is so, read up about the Scalability Trilemma.)

Incumbent giants, such as Visa and Mastercard, are shifting their attention to blockchain-based financial services as a way to tap into…


TLDR;

  • The DAPP Network community intends to optimize its liquidity position through a collaboration with the Bancor DAO that will inject ~$1.5m of liquidity into DAPP.
  • Through an innovative reward mechanism developed specifically by the DAPP Network for this purpose, the BNT<>DAPP liquidity pool’s impermanent loss protection will be covered by DAPP.
  • The DAPP Network will open-source this mechanism so that the Bancor community can provide significantly more liquidity to many more promising projects with low initial market capitalizations while remaining profitable on its innovative impermanent loss protection program.
  • Vote FOR to whitelist DAPP Token with a co-investment of 500k BNT.


LiquidApps has awarded a 750,000 DAPP grant to Blockstart as part of the DAPP Network Grants Program for the design, development, and deployment of the DAPP bridge to Ethereum. This also included the creation of the DAPP ERC20 contract, as well as other components that are essential for the continued operation of this bridge and its improvement and maintenance per the community’s decisions.

Blockstart is a Silicon Valley accelerator for decentralized applications and one of the early adopters of the DAPP Network. They have been operating as a DAPP Service Provider (DSP) since 2019. …


A summary of the DAPP Network’s news and accomplishments this month.

DAPP Network Governance Goes Live!

March started out with a bang when a new governance model was introduced to the DAPP Network community, kicking off the month with a significant development.

A New Governance Model is Introduced

DAPP Network Governance Portal Launches

One day after the DAPP Network governance contracts were deployed, a community hosted governance portal went live at DAPPGovernance.com.

Bridging, Connecting & Collaborating in the Age of Social Distancing

TL;DR

  • Cross-chain bridging and interoperability has become one of the focal points of the DAPP Network during its second year of development.
  • EdgeDSPs are taking cross-chain a step further by enabling anyone with an internet connection to become a DAPP Service Provider, lowering the barriers to network growth and further decentralizing the DAPP Network.
  • A new DAPP Network governance system enables the community to suggest, debate, and implement changes to the DAPP Network.

“Looking forward to 2020, we believe that by interoperating with one another, individual networks can create win-win scenarios amongst themselves while driving meaningful transformation on a global scale.”


A Deeply Decentralized Future for the DAPP Network

TL;DR

  • A new governance model is being introduced for the DAPP Network.
  • A proposal system is at the core of DAPP Network governance. Any DAPP token holder can submit a proposal and the DAPP token holders must vote for it to pass.
  • The keys for the DAPPSERVICES smart contract will be held by an MSIG of DAPP Network Guardians, in charge of deploying and signing changes based on approved governance proposals passed by the DAPP Network community.

One of the overarching goals in the blockchain industry to date has been to build distributed systems that can run autonomous protocols dictated by…
