Project Details

Project purpose
The Crown project needs several IT services to run. This includes Gitlab for code development, website hosting so new users can find the project and other bitcoin-fork  specific services.
This proposal is to cover the costs of the old subscriptions that are currently running. Besides that we try to cover as much of the costs community member pjcltd has by making services of his hosting company available.

I (edwardmorra) will not request funds this month for my personal time, I feel it best to let it up to the community to donate what they think my work is worth. I choose to do so as the superblock is under quite a load as it is and I think infrastructure cost should come first.
My CRW address is: 19SDFgjumZyrRCtpzPdWeUMMs4oJ9w7D13


The ambition of this proposal is to have crown infrastructure costs covered. This proposal’s project is to streamline system administration of the past 4 years into 1 as cost effective operation as possible so any bear market can be survived.

Proposal timetable and turning point(s)

As of right now there are 35+ servers running. Some of these are running at a too high cost.
12th of January is intended to be the moment where as much as possible of the infrastructure is on the hosting environment of pjcltd.
The migration/new setup of the infrastructure is time intensive and comes with hurdles like access details being spread wide.
Next superblock the intent is to not have to exchange CRW into fiat as pjcltd accepts crown as payment.
Acceptance criteria

This proposal can be called a success when migration and cost cutting doesn’t disturb the network infrastructure. For now it is most important the services keep running.


The migration methods used have so far not impacted the general operation of the Crown Project, once a server is copied it can be tweaked/setup in a sandbox-like environment. This means there is almost no risk involved with the cost-reduction part of this proposal.
The cost coverage part has 1 significant risk: Price decrease.
To try and hold of that risk the requested crown will be turned into FIAT asap. Thereby knowing how much of the cost is covered, so I (edwardmorra) can find other ways to cover the costs. Besides that pjcltd has agreed to help out with the cost see below.

Funding requirements

See google doc for cost breakdown here
*** Extra USD gathered due to higher price then expected will roll over into next month***

Total CRW: 7830

 Costs cut so far.

170 Dollars from digital Ocean culling/migrating

70 By migrating nextcloud

99 By migrating Mattermost

Next proposal will contain an update about the cost situation, besides that @edwardmorra can be pinged in discord and will stay in contact with the contributors.
