I thank you for the concern, I’ve tried to reply to the best of my ability
Sure, but I am not running 6 nodes and I don’t have any particular need in running 6 nodes. I only need to run 1 for now, maybe one or two more if I want to be really sure nothing funky happens (like missed events). I just don’t need that now.
This is not how Daolist works now and this is not how Daolist is going to work. I’ve also stated in the funding proposal that I am going to run the code on a seperate server - the architecture Daolist uses now is scalable enough and does not use cronjobs.
I am certain I will upgrade it at some point, but for aggregation this happens as soon as the data comes in and is cached. This is why I’ve requested funding for a Redis instance, used for caching.
I am aware of this, but I am swallowing that cost myself.
I am not even counting the compensation for your time.
I am not searching compensation for my time.
Final note, I am not asking for the full amount needed to host Daolist. I am well aware that it might cost more and there will certainly be unforeseen expenses, but I am willing to pay for these myself. This proposal has never been about getting full funding for Daolist. It’s about getting funding for the most expensive parts, because I can’t take on the full cost myself, otherwise I would have done that.
I am aware that the setup I’ve described might not seem “scalable” or “production ready”, but I know what i am doing and I am sure that this is enough for now. If Daolist needs to scale even further and I all of a sudden have to run a lot more stuff, then that will be reflected in another funding proposal if needed.
Final note, I don’t think Scout and Daolist can be compared too much. Yes, both collect and transform data from the blockchain, but Scout has a lot more requirements in terms of scalability seeing that Scout is general purpose and needs to be able to manage more than 1 project. Daolist is exclusively collecting data on Aragon orgs and provides a bit more of an Aragon-centric experience.
