The complete proposal have been posted as a Gist on my Github account. This was done so that the community can be made aware if any changes made to the document (through the version control system), and so that it can easily reviewed by Shareholders. If further amendments to this draft proposal are required, I will clearly call them out within this topic.
The full proposal can be found here: https://gist.github.com/Cybnate/f38fed991467873ef9b2. This gist is considered to be the actual contract with the Shareholders when the grant passes the 50% voting threshold.
Overview of grant:
Proposal: Development of NuBits Android wallet
Submission Date: 18-Feb-2015
Developments: 22,500 NBT
Marketing: 6,100 NBT
Custodial Fee: 500 NBT
Donations: -/- 1,260 NBT
NuBits Grant Address: B6tBUhTuetuZezgoJCwwqkJNXNQXPCiand
Vote Amount: 27,840 NBT
Summary of grant:
The Development has been broken down in 3 releases:
Release 1 Pincode Lock will take up to 3 weeks (1,300 NBT)
Release 2 Shapeshift API will take up to 12 weeks (14,000 NBT)
Release 3 Server Config will take up to 8 weeks (7,200 NBT)
Total developments 22,500 NBT
6,100 NBT is included for the advertising on CMC including a moving banner or multiple banner during 3 months and a Reddit giveaway soon after release 2 has successfully been delivered.
500 NBT is included as a custodial fee as a contribution to the work I'm doing to execute this grant successfully.
Total including marketing: 22,500 + 6,100 + 500 = 29,100 NBT
Shapeshift.io have promised to support the grant with 1000 NBT and donations totaled at 260 NBT.
Total grant: 29,100 NBT - 1000 NBT - 260 NBT = 27,840 NBT (= vote amount)
I've deliberately chosen to combine a bunch of work to be able to contract the same developer (Matthew M.) and secure ongoing development for the next 5 months as per the proposal instead of going piecemeal with the risk loosing the developer or slowing down the rate of further Developments.
I think it is clear that release 2 is the cornerstone of this proposal which will provide some pretty unique functionality. Given the complexity it comes at a considerable cost. Release two covers seamless payments with foreign coins while keeping stable in value NuBits in the wallet. It won't cover receiving foreign coins at this stage given the expected significant additional development time and cost I haven't included this. For the same reason I took out the ability to receive an email receipt during payment.
When the release 2 functionality is in our hands I propose to make a good marketing effort to advertise the existence of the mobile wallet and the unique functionality. Advertising on CoinMarketCap.com with an attractive banner supported by a mobile webpage and a Reddit give-away is therefore part of this proposal.
