Because this is the first update in this projects logs, i'd like to provide a short list of what is presently implemented and working vs. planned features that are not.
Currently functional features :
Basic website functionality - Featured projects are displayed on landing page.
Web based Monero miner - tested on Firefox and Chrome.
Simple submission form - Submitted projects are emailed to xmrccf administrator
Websocket Proxy Server - Workers are connecting properly through secure websockets to the xmrccf.net server. The proxy connects all miners for a specific project to one specific address at the mining pool in use.
Encrypted Connections - The website is setup for HTTPS, using a signed certificate. The connection from users to the proxy is also encrypted, using secure web sockets ( wss:// ) and TLS. When the mining pool in use supports encrypted connections, proxy to server is also encrypted. Attempts to connect webminers through an un-encrypted ( ws:// ) connection will not be allowed.
Not functional or yet implemented :
GPU/ASIC mining (xmrig or similar) - Is currently configured only for donations to this project. I am testing several different methods for allowing this to be scaled to more ports for each project, while providing secure connections.
Full Statistics API - I am currently working on providing important statistics for the individual projects being mined to. Examples : current hashrates per project, workers online per project, total amount donated in xmr, etc.
Future plans ( if interest and funding allows ) :
Better project submission interface - Something along the lines of what similar websites use, to allow the creation of a project on the website. Allow the project coordinator to construct the project page, then submit for approval. Should support common media types : images, recorded video, etc. Provide a nice UI that users would generally expect.
Of course, if your interested in getting involved with the project get in touch via email to email@example.com. Donations in XMR would be gladly accepted, or you can help out by mining for the Crypto Crowd Funding project via the link on our home page!
