This post is to give the community an update on I-O-T DAO that was launched in November last year [INTRO] I-O-T DAO launched on Astro
“He who plants a walnut tree expects not to eat the fruit” is the translation of a traditional Italian proverb, which basically means that some things in life can take time to come into fruition.
The aims and objectives set out in the introduction include the following:
The first tools that the DAO is focused on building are based on one of the functions of money - medium of exchange Money - Wikipedia
A token is a representation of value that can be used to transact for goods and services IRL, but most of the community projects funded in NEAR by @creativesdao-mods and @marketingdao-council will be exchanged into local fiat currency.
This DAO is looking to build the tools to facilitate transactions without the need to exchange.
Transact in NEAR is the working title for a project to build two mobile apps:
- Pricing - QR code label generator ‘price gun’ using Bluetooth label printer
This app consists of a page where the user enters the vendor wallet address and item price in NEAR. Click generate button and connect to printer. Print out label. The label is then attached to the physical item.
- Payment - qr code scanner
This app consists of a screen where the user opens a QR code scanner (using the device camera). When opened the app automatically links to buyers wallet, selects send, fills vendors wallet address and amount when QR code is scanned. Click pay button to complete purchase.
Both of the apps will use a ‘Connect to Near’ wallet plug-in.
The DAO intends to post a Bounty to fund the development of the two apps, and we are actively reaching out to software developers outside the community.
