Proposal description

Detailed Proposal at: DashOdooModule.pdf
Business have a hard time implementing crypto into their systems. Is not just a matter of wallets and cloud services, but integration with their current systems that can provide a quick an easy way to adopt cryptos. Handling multiple request of different currency and having an always updated price list could make the effort of purchasing and recalculating a time consuming task, and add complexity to the operation. The goal of the project is not just to make DASH technology available but to really provide a solution for high traffic transaction being viable to be performed using Odoo.
The project aims to achieve one of DASH goals on it’s whitepaper:
A main issue with the acceptance of Bitcoin in point-of-sale(POS) situations is the time required to wait for the network to confirm the transaction made is valid, alternatively payment companies have created methods to allow vendors to take zero-confirmation transactions, but these solutions utilize a trusted counterparty to mediate the transaction outside of the protocol.
The project aim to be a stepping stone into this direction.
Project team:
Currently the team is conformed by experience Python and Odoo developers:
  • Gonzalo Borras
  • Alexandro Colorado
  • Gonzalo Lopez
Gonzalo Borras and Alexandro Colorado are community members of crypto related associations with Avalbit and Bitcuners respectively.
Estimated time of development for a first alpha version at 2 month with a usable version by 4th month. 5th month will be for testing and improvements.

Key Deliverables
Using DASH on Odoo will make it easy for business to consider DASH an alternative, extending the commercial use of the altcoin and make it possible for anyone to offer the alternative. It can also open the test case for more business to exploit benefits of DASH unique quick transactions for high traffic purchases.

  • Provide DASH listing on the accounting multi-currency support
  • Provide POS functionality to Odoo including QR generation for incoming payments
  • Provide reporting functionality from sales made with DASH 
  • Show local currency exchange at the moment
  • Provide a DASH module on the Odoo store
 Milestones and Schedule
Estimating rigid deadlines on a development is risky since changes on the API are coming with evolution, but assuming that all the things are set in. We estimate a 5 month period. Issues have been raised upon this extended period due to the DASH volatility could de-fund or over-fund the project.

Proposal such as creating child projects, or forcing a quit of the proposal and re-propose are probable solutions to keep the project moving forward uninterrupted. The feature list could also be compromised due to limitations of both platforms.
Given all this, we can estimate a workable version by month 2, and two further versions after that before reaching a 1.0 production version.

Planning will start from the construction of this proposal which include, looking for reference code that support the development, looking for specialized talent to fill the team and also the inclusion of experts that will enforce the success of the project.

Delivery will be shown on the OCA server which is the open source repository for Odoo, listed on their module store.

Please put "downvote please" behind the title of this specific budget proposal that appearently contains wrong budget amount per month.

For 950 Dash total instead of monthly you will get probably get a yes from me.

1. Will you at the same time provide modules for other crypto currencies?
2. Will you support InstantX?

I didn't see InstantSend mentioned once in here and this is point of sale software. Why not?

Sorry guys, there was a critical mistake with the fund distribution it was meant to be 950 over 5 months, giving around 190 a month. I will be posting a new proposal next week with the proper amount, please evaluate the proposal nevertheless, I'll make an effort to answer the questions.

You are not the first to make this mistake. Sounds like the submission form needs some clarification.
1 point,7 years ago
Ok, 950 DASH is the total then. Please re-submit for next month's budget and ask for 10 DASH to refund your proposal submission costs.

Can you explain your cost distribution in detail ?
1 point,7 years ago
Expensive, if you ask me.

Isn't this the same what already doing?

Probably very close. Blockpay is likely not going to do InstantSend. If JZA incorporated InstantSend it would better fit the potential for Dash.

I find it very expensive, IMHO. Also it would be appreciated the cost distribution in as many details as possible. For the moment being I will be voting no.

So.. what is this?

Is an extension to a popular open source ERP system. The ERP includes a module for Point of Sale systems, our goal is to create a module (extension) so that the ERP can work with DASH just like you see on the image.
