Community Superblock: 1641600 Please vote!
It’s time to vote for the latest proposals!
There is a great responsibility for the community to vote either “yes,” or “no,” on the proposals. It cannot be emphasised enough how much the proposal authors and the Blocknet team relies on the community to vote on project proposals to ensure continued funding for development of the Blocknet.
The proposals for superblock 1641600 can be viewed below or on the forum here . Please note, proposals are being submitted individually so please make sure you scroll down and take your time to look over each proposal. For any late proposals please check the forum above.
In the latest wallet voting is now much easier. Navigate to the proposal area:
Open the wallet and in the side menu, go to Proposals. The wallet needs to be unlocked to cast votes. The Proposals screen shows all the proposals submitted to the network. Above the list of proposals there is an option to filter by Upcoming, which displays the proposals that can currently be voted on. Select this filter to view all proposals currently open for voting.
Review the proposals and the amount requested. It’s a good idea to consider the total Superblock budget, the other proposals amounts requested, the priorities of the project, and if the proposal aligns with those priorities and greater vision of the project. The link for each proposal should lead to a description of what the proposal is for with some background information and objectives. The voting system will automatically calculate how many votes you have available according to your balance (1 vote per 5000 BLOCK) and cast your full vote weight when voting (5562 BLOCK balance = 1 vote, 49635 BLOCK balance = 9 votes.
When ready to vote on a proposal, select the Vote button. A popup will appear that will be used to vote from. Select whether you’d like to approve the proposal (Yes) or vote against the proposal (No). After you have selected how you wish to vote, select the Vote button. This registers your vote to the network after the vote transaction has 1 confirmation (about 1 minute). Once you have voted you can change your vote by selecting the Change Vote button and selecting you new vote.
- Repeat this process for every proposal you are voting for.
- Your vote is not counted until the voting transaction fee has 1 confirmation (typically 1 minute), after which your votes will be accounted for.
- If you spend any of your 5000 BLOCK inputs after you vote, the vote is marked invalid and you will need to cast your vote(s) again.
- If you are staking, your vote will automatically re-cast.

Proposal Name: Balena-1641600 Owner: Balena
Cost: 5000 BLOCK
Proposal: Coin Telegraph recoup costs
Hello Community , as you know Blocknet nears release of 2 great pieces of tech thats been long anticipated . Xlite / Xrouter . After talking to Cointelegraph the nr.1 News Outlet in Crypto , I have managed to secure a Deal which come in the form of a ValuePackage Cointelegraph offered which consist of a 3 Article writing for The Blocknet and some more coverage over Cointelegraph recommendation widget . All of this was offered for 21k$ which is a good price, taken separately this would mean a little in excess of 30–35k$.
After talking with the team and seeing I get supported in this effort I offered to pay for this in advance . I have managed to liquidate BLOCK for Bitcoin OTC to a friend of mine for the price at the time of liquidation of .90c per BLOCK.
Now I have to recover these BLOCK coins , which I thought id do over the next 4 Months not to burden SB funding. Please show your support for this great cause to get the word out there about the tech.
I don’t make any money or profit in any way out of this deal . just an upfront Pay that im supporting to recover it in the months to come.

Proposal Name: Ecosystem_Update: Owner: Crypto Corgi
Cost: 450 BLOCK
Proposal: Ecosystem Update
I have been asked by @shorn, as part of his ongoing marketing initiatives, to start writing a once monthly Ecosystem Update newsletter.
This Ecosystem Update will be blog-style article that covers one or more important topics relevant to the project, such as releases, roadmap, project goals, products, etc.
It will be written in a plain english format and put the project’s current progress in context of its longer-term goals and vision.
This approachable blog format will be a nice compliment to the current “Word of the Block” newsletter, which provides more of a summary point-form overview, and will allow people to follow along while getting excited about the Blocknet’s progress and vision!
Since this will be the first Ecosystem Update, I am providing the following draft preview. Please keep in mind this is only a draft preview for example purposes and the final product will tie-in other aspects.

Proposal Name: fazer-liquidity-002 Owner: Fazer
Cost: 2000 BLOCK (fazer) (100% to 24/7 liquidity)
Proposal: DX Liquidity
- dxmakerbot research and development
— details in fazer-dxmbot-001 to fazer-dxmbot-011 proposals
- providing 24/7 liquidity by running dxmakerbot on BlockDX
- running with takerbot feature enabled on 15 seconds
- 100% of funds will be pushed into liquidity
- expectations are that bot will be running swaps for a ~months maybe years until goes to ~zero or maybe never
- running BLOCK-LTC BLOCK-BTC pairs chosen on the fly by community needs.
- possible to reserve some BTC-LTC to run also this pair
- timing is important, needs to have systems configured and ready before lite wallet release, so right timing to start it right with light wallet release
- liquidity must be configured to do not affect users running bot nor moving price down
- maybe good start before Light wallet release is to slow sell half of funds, for example BLOCK to LTC and be ready for Light wallet release
- moving liquidity/open-orders from CEX to DEX mostly orders to balance both side of trading pairs

Proposal Name: tech-ops-1641600 Owner: atcsecure
Cost: 3000 BLOCK
- Initially focus was on automation and related requirements (scripts, dockerimages,etc). However focus was shifted to getting the drop-in infura replacement finished. Which required updates to XRouter Proxy and creating new plug-in’s to manage payments and API usage.
- 2 new plugins are now available:
- eth-payment-processor: https://github.com/blocknetdx/eth-payment-processor 1
- xr-eth-payment: https://github.com/blocknetdx/xr-eth-payment
Once the infura solution is 100% completed and working as a drop in replacement for infura, focus will shift to finishing the automation (which now include the ability to easily deploy the infura solution w/ the eth-payment-processor)
