Summary and background
Icon Foundation is accepting proposals for creating a small, local blockchain state tracker that can be run along with one or a set of local Icon validator + API endpoint nodes. Icon Foundation has been in operation since 2017 and has grown to include thousands of users. Blockchain operation and tracking is crucial for the growth and sustenance of the Icon Ecosystem.
This request for proposal has been published to gather bids for the local blockchain tracker portion of our Icon Interoperability Incentivization plan.
Guidelines for bidders
All subcontracting intentions must be clearly represented therein. All documents must be prepared and signed by those authorized to do so. All costs must be listed in bnUSD. Further terms are subject to development pending selection of a bid.
Project purpose and scope
The purpose of the Icon Smart Contract Template project is to provide a small, local blockchain tracker for a set of local Icon validator + API endpoint nodes. This project will also include a Dockerized version of the tool to be made publicly available through Docker Hub, and will include a straightforward set of documentations for using and modifying the tool.
This tool should be able to show the following:
