Costs

Daily: 369 HBD
Monthly: 11070 HBD

Labor (Development+Management): ~160x2 hours per month, 9600 HBD
Recurring costs (Servers): ~$2100, ~2100 HBD

We have 5 developers and 1 designer/illustrator and getting all of them full time is not reasonable ask, so we are load balancing it with 2 full time person. But 5 devs will be working, 2 person mobile, 3 person (web+desktop), 2 person backend, plus 2 person designer/illustrator, all interconnected because some of us bring multiple skillset to the team.

State of DHF

  • As of right now there is around ~8 272 285 HBD available for proposals
  • Daily possible funding on Decentralized Hive Fund is ~82 722 HBD
  • We are asking Daily 369 HBD

We understand that during the duration of our proposal we may get partial funding sometimes, no funding sometimes. But it won't stop us from developing and delivering. We hope you see value Ecency brings to Hive and support us in common vision and goal!
