It's designed for anyone who self-identifies as part of the Ethereum community and wants to support its public goods.
What are some challenges and successes you've seen so far?
We're building on bleeding-edge technology with MACI, BrightID, Kleros, Ethereum, and xDai, so the biggest challenges have been building on top of moving targets.
That said, clr.fund wouldn't be possible without the work that a ton have people have put into those projects. ❤️
Plus it's cool to be able to say things like "You’ve contributed to the first ever (almost) permissionless quadratic funding round!".
Being grant funded, so we can maintain credible neutrality, has also been a challenge. But Moloch, Gitcoin grants, and the EF have really helped us along the way.
Where are things headed? What are the project goals and roadmap for the rest of the year, and next year?
The rest of the year will involve a series of subsequent test rounds as we roll out the rest of the pieces (BrightID, Kleros, etc) and continue to make improvements.
If everything happens super smoothly, we could get to mainnet production rounds by late this year or early next year.
We are planning to migrate to mainnet for our production rounds, but there are obviously gas implications for which we are yet to implement solutions. That said, there's no reason that the xDai instance can't live on in parallel, perhaps it could transition to supporting xDai public goods once the canonical clr.fund instance migrates back to mainnet.
****🙏 Thanks Auryn! We are excited to follow the project and support Ethereum development and funds allocation! Anything else to add?
One last thing I wanted to point out is clr.fund's constitution. It really gives a great overview of what clr.fund is and why we built it.
