Edward Kim and Zaradar Releases Formed New Terra Classic Layer 1 Team and Release First Proposal
Edward Kim and Zaradar’s Layer 1 team have issued their initial plan, which details their objectives for the upcoming three months plus the funds needed.
The Terra Classic Layer 1 squad, referred to as the “Joint L1 Task Force,” has published their initial plan, which was made public by Terra Classic main programmer Edward Kim in a tweet today.
It was suggested on Tuesday that Edward Kim and Tobias Andersen, also known as Zaradar, were forming a new Layer 1 development team. Edward Kim’s proposal today confirms this.
The team has been contracted to complete necessary maintenance upgrades in the next three months, as specified in the proposal. In order to do this, they have presented a budget of more than $141.75k that includes four senior developers (two working part-time), one administrative assistant, and two junior developers, plus any software tools needed for the job. A summary of these costs is provided below.
- Zaradar (senior developer, full-time) – $12.5k × 3 = $37.5k
- 1 Notional Labs developer (senior developer, full-time) – $12.5k × 3 = $37.5k
- Fragwuerdig (senior developer, part-time) – $6.25k x 3 = $18.75k
- Edward Kim (senior developer, part-time) – $6.25k x 3 = $18.75k
- Admin – $2.5k × 3 = $7.5k
- Junior Developers – $2.5k × 2 × 3 = $15k
- Tooling budget – $750 per senior developer, assuming the equivalent of 3 senior developers for three months = $6.75k
The plan calls for regular payments to be made once certain objectives have been accomplished, which will be determined by a community monitoring group and the Terra Grants Foundation.
PFC (@PFC_Validator), StrathCole (@ColeStrathclyde), and DJ Trev Market Talk (@edTreb001) have all consented to be part of the oversight committee, as per Zaradar’s tweet yesterday. They will engage in a bi-weekly sprint, giving advice to the community and providing direction to the Layer 1 task force.
Several people from the community have already expressed their support for the proposal, praising it for its openness and comprehensibility.
