About


the Sunrise Choir is a team developing the next generation of solarpunk peer-to-peer communication systems using Scuttlebutt.

we aim to evolve the fundamentals of the Scuttlebutt core protocol: to create both a future-proofed, maintainable, and accessible implementation and a tightly-coordinated, clearly defined, focused, and rhythmic team.

principles

we want future peer-to-peer communication infrastructure:

  • backwards-compatible with the existing Scuttlebutt network
  • developed by a well-coordinated team with a clear roadmap
  • accessible to new developers and maintainable by existing developers
  • friendly to other human and computer languages, composed of orthogonal parts that each focus on a separate concern
  • well-specified for humans to audit design, well-documented for humans to grok implementation, and well-tested for computers to check implementation
  • designed for crypto upgrades we should expect and designed for future changes we didn't expect

roadmap

the current Sunrise Choir roadmap, in a nutshell:

  • developing a core protocol team, with regular weekly meetings, a strict focus towards a clear roadmap, and monthly newsletters to share progress.
  • developing a Rust-powered Scuttlebutt-native database, using the best of flumedb and existing SQL systems
  • developing a consensus-free Scuttlestack, to allow different Scuttlebutt applications to cooperate in harmony without conflicts: %1bz0TXDuaM65KMTb8bgtrXuqD7L77baneTdoJ0EwRug=.sha256

progress

finances

Sunrise Choir workers are paid a flat rate per day of work towards the current roadmap.

note: the Sunrise Choir only sponsors a maximum of 20 working days per month, to prevent burn-out.

the default rate is: (5000 USD per month / 20 working days per month) == 250 USD per working day

the team is currently funded by Mikey for a total of 1 + 1/3 full-time equivalents, but this is only a temporary bootstrap, we need your help to become financially sustainable!
