BUIP202: Hire additional developers
Griffith & Andrew Stone
BU has committed to building the nexa blockchain and its ecosystem but there are some gaps in the current talent of our team of developers especially in areas relating to graphical user interfaces. This developer will be able to bridge the gaps in the development of some applications as well as being another set of hands for merge requests etc.
This BUIP proposes an hourly payment up to the limits as defined in BUIP194 to sub-contract up to two additional senior developers or one senior developer and multiple junior developers. Payment may occur directly from BU, or through a 3rd party (one of the current developers or their companies) as may be needed for simplicity or to meet local regulations. These developers should will be well versed in creating multi-platform apps within the Nexa and Bitcoin Unlimited ecosystem. Payment is offered in a negotiated crypto, not a fiat currency, at monthly intervals to the developer or the third party who then would pay the developer in fiat.
The developer hired for this role will work closely with the other BU developers and will be responsible for their own accounting, tax reporting, health insurance, etc. This is a consulting service contract, not employment.
Funding is allocated yearly and is renewed at the discretion of the BU President, Developer, and Secretary. Termination of this agreement may be taken by either party at any time and requires 60 days notice. Intention to not renew the contract requires 60 days notice.
The new developer will work on different takes across a number of BU projects including but not limited to:
- Wally Wallet
- Block Explorer
- General RPC documentation
