Call for Projects

As of Feb 14th 2018, LEAF is valued at roughly 182 million USD. LRN and LRQ have not been publicly tradable but their estimated initial prices are $0.5~$1.0 (LRN and LRQ’s max supply are both exactly 1/10 of the max supply of LRC).

Call for Contributions

All contributors need to submit monthly reports to summarize their contributions to qualify for LEAF rewards. They shall agree that these reports can be made publicly available for the community or third-parties for evaluation. LEAF may not pay for small or ad-hoc contributions, and prefers to incentivize long-term and dedicated community contributors.

  • Event-Sourcing Based Relayer Alternative Implementation

    Our current relayer implementation persists orders and some other data to hard disks (using database such as MySql). We would like to try a different architecture based on event-sourcing frameworks such as Akka Persistence. Event-sourcing builds in-memory states from event logs and thus may achieve a much higher throughput. With the help of Event-sourcing Views, caching and read-write separation will also be easier.

    We prefer golang, Scala, and Java for this alternative implementation.

  • Market Making Systems

    For all exchanges, centralized or decentralized, market-making is very crucial for providing liquidity, which is an important part of user experience. We call developers to write tools for detecting signals, and executing different trading strategies. Our goals include:

    Providing liquidity without price manipulation;
    Providing liquidity without losing money;
    Providing liquidity for both centralized exchanges and DEXs using Loopring Protocol.

  • A Mobile Friendly Ring Browser

    The ring browser should be highly responsive so people can view the Loopring Transaction or rings with different mobile devices. This browser should also be embeddable for third-party mobile apps.

    Loopring rings should be visualized in the browser in such a way that order owners can easily figure how their orders were filled, and ring-miners can easily understand how they have been paid by each successful trade.

  • Telegram Channel Managers

    We need volunteers to manage the following Telegram channels:

    https://t.me/loopring_en (English)
    https://t.me/loopringfans (Simplified Chinese)
    https://t.me/loopring_russian (Russian)
    https://t.me/loopring_jp (Japanese)
    https://t.me/loopring_kr (Korean)
    https://t.me/loopring_es (Spanish)

    To received the reward, you’ll be interviewed so we can be sure you truly understand how Loopring works and its ecosystem. Please make sure you read our docs and whitepaper before you contact jay@loopring.org or daniel@loopring.org.

  • Sharable Contents

    We want to reward selected videos that explain how Loopring Protocol works, its potential impact to token exchanges, etc., based on the video’s quality, duration, language, and number of viewers. We rate videos with drawings and animations higher than interview type videos.

    We also want to have cool and fun artworks, such as logo animations, high definition images and posters, etc. We will no longer set up competitions, but you can submit your artworks to daniel@loopring.org anytime you want.

    We'd like to make it clear that NOT ALL artwork submissions will be rewarded, but only those that we truly like and use.
