LocalZone Bot Funding Request

LocalZone Bot is a Telegram bot that converts times sent in groups to every member’s local time zone without clattering the chat.

LocalZone Bot is a non-profit project whose development was funded by Free TON Community through TonSeed, here’s the project page.

It’s usage was demonstrated on the 64th Free TON weekly call, starting at 20:30.

It has been widely used and feedback has been great from users in the community. In order to remunerate initial investors on the TonSeed platform, and cover future running costs, we seek funding for the total amount of 1437 TON Crystals.

Funding Request

  • The project raised 602.99 TONs through TonSeed to cover development costs. This amount needs to be returned to funders + rewards. In total 1139 TONs. (Can be seen in the project page, by clicking the tab “Supported By” and downloading the “Lists of voters” document).

  • In addition, the hosting of the Bot for the next year should cost 132 TONs (5$ per month).

  • Maintenance costs should be an additional amount of 266 TONs for the next year.

Additional Information

Upon acceptance, payment should be sent to: 0:6374643d8d4b1aef831d6e1a4fdc719909165b1b232a20ad25878ad400aeb0bb. For any questions, please contact @noam_y on telegram or @Noam on the forum.

Hello, Thanks for your work! A really useful bot.
p.s: I think this topic should be in “proposals”. The partnership section is hardly suitable here.

LocalZone Bot Partnership Proposal

LocalZone Bot is a Telegram bot that converts times sent in groups to every member’s local time zone without clattering the chat.

LocalZone Bot is a non-profit project whose development was funded by Free TON Community through TonSeed, here’s the project page.

It’s usage was demonstrated on the 64th Free TON weekly call, starting at 20:31.

It has been widely used and feedback has been great from users in the community. We request an amount of 1619 TON Crystals.

Since there are ongoing costs, we’ll probably request a much smaller amount next year.

Benefits to Free TON

  • Community members from all over the world can easily know when events and zoom calls are.
  • Also, the bot contains a “Brought to you by Free TON” text with a link to Free TON chat, in every message. Thus marketing Free TON in other groups who use the bot.

A) Great little bot. Does the trick and is very helpful. B) The ask is insignificant. Value for money is clear. I also support this.

maybe let’s do it though TonSeed as it was done initially? partnership is something different

@Gofman
These are two different things.
The dear supporters funded the development on TonSeed, they will get back their money + their reward through tonseed.
This is a request from Free TON to recognize the value of the project and what was accomplished.
It’s true though, that most of the tokens requested would go to the supporters, as this is a non profit project that does no generate revenue, the only way to return those funds is through a partnership proposal.
Free TON does not give grants for development, but it can give tokens for results.
That’s why TON Seed was used to fund development. Once the proposal is accepted, I will be able to return the money + reward to the initial supporters.
