I have been working since July 1st with a team of NEAR Hispano Guild developers who went through the Near Certified Developer program with Sherif.
The current project is a 2 week proof-of-concept to test their abilities. The end goal of the project is to build a website where:
- A marketer can choose a list of twitter accounts to send a reward
- A twitter account owner on the list can prove account ownership and claim their reward (the first reward will be NEAR tokens, though the long term goal will be NFTs)
A fixed price of $4500 paid in NEAR for 2 weeks of effort by this group of engineers was agreed upon before they started. (Half on July 9th, and half on July 16th, 2021) This proposal is for the July 9th portion (50%)
Here is their original forum post outlining what they are building
After 1-week they have accomplished the following
They have also extensively researched Twitter Authentication, created landing page mockups, met with me @ross every day for a 15 minute SCRUM to discuss their progress and intentions.
This team’s agreement extends through Friday, at which time we’ll discuss possible next steps.
It has come to my attention that there are many similarities between the tools being developed here and the intentions of the Linkdrop team. Depending on the outcome of this proof-of-concept the team may be best served using their new NEAR abilities to help extend Linkdrop.
