[PROPOSAL] UNIQUEONE.NETWORK - UoNo NFT Marketplace (Appchain)

We are thrilled to announce the Octopus Network IDO & development sponsorship for the Uniqueone.Network appchain. As we work closely with the Octopus Network Team on the Appchain, transparency towards how the project funds are being channeled is crucial. There are a few statements we need to clarify with our community :

  1. Uniqueone.network team is building UoNo NFT Marketplace on Octopus Network in the NEAR ecosystem. The development is ongoing and team will work closely with Octopus Network to fulfill our potential as an Appchain partner.

  2. UoNo NFT Marketplace is a standalone protocol which a culmination of our team’s multiyear experience in the crypto industry.

  3. As far as funding is concerned, each protocol proposals are shared independently on a different post under the forum, but introductory post to UniqueOne.Network remains here. Uniqueone.network may propose any future updates on Octopus DAO (if applicable) apart from getting the community updated on gov.near.org - we are monitoring the progress here

Very good job, team. As time goes by, I am more pleasantly surprised at how high this project can go. As a Community Council I hope to be up to the task and be able to help UNIQUE ONE NETWORK.

Interesting breakdown of proposed cost.

Is it really necessary to spin up so many different servers? Ie: I reckon we could probably combine the NFT Image Cache Server and Database server since they are dealing with similar documents. Also, how heavy are the tasks running on the NFT scheduler server? Do we really need a dedicated server for that?

Hi @brighttux, appreciate your input.

It would be industrial’s best practice to separate database and NFT Image Cache Server as both server are relatively different from one another in terms of job processing & specifications. Expect different loads on the processing end as we spin off the server for Caching NFT minting, as we don’t want to crash the database when the load increases. However, we will evaluate the situation, performance and update the community if there’s a need to minimize the setups.

Hmm, the voting process seems a little weird.

In the current scenario:

It would require either:

  • 50% of council to agree OR
  • 100% of Community Council to agree OR
  • 50% of Members to agree OR
  • 50% of Observers to agree

As for the current voting status, it has already been approved, since there is only one member and the member has voted, and it has reached the minimum quota.

In the future, I think it would be essential to change the “OR” to “AND” so that neither parties can directly tilt the scale.

@cryptocredit Greetings! Thank you for your input.

In case I did not explained the above proposal well, I wish to clarify that this proposal is meant for Octopus Network IDO & Development Sponsorship, and not asking sponsorship from Near Marketing. I apologise if there’s any misunderstanding here. Would appreciate if this post can be affiliate to the correct category for Octopus Network.
