Initial Testing

A project log for Crypto Crowd Funding

A funding platform for software development projects, startups, and internet non profits - Powered by Monero 11/28/2018 at 15:270 Comments

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 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 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!
