Polkadot bridges RFP - come build bridges with us! #155
The Web3 Foundation is looking to attract teams interested in designing and implementing bridges!
Bridges are specialized parachains that allow communication to external blockchain networks such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, that are not secured by Polkadot’s relay chain. In order to achieve the broadest notion of interoperability, it’s crucial that bridges are constructed for as many different existing blockchain networks as possible.
For more information and for details on how to apply, please see the following document:
The Web3 Foundation would like to support bridge development with all major blockchain networks. However, the highest priorities for us at the moment are bridges to Bitcoin, Ethereum and Zcash.
Please also check our or riot channel for bridges.
Please apply by September 13, 2019 to be considered for the first round of funding.
Since we are making a Plasma chain, we are very very interested in making a plasma bridge between Polkadot and X (As a first step, we are focusing on Ethereum).
And we have been thinking about a bridge structure. Now we just have a Japanese draft. I am translating it into English. Once we finish the translation, please let me share with you.
If you can also figure out how to do shielded to shielded bridging then you would have solved a tough problem! Generally, bridge operators have capital at stake that's slashed for bad behaviour. Naturally, you need to know how the value of the tokens in the bridge in order to know whether there is enough capital at risk, but it seems that is tricky to do for shielded Zcash transactions.
Hi everyone - we will be closing this round of applications and starting to make initial decisions on funding as of September 13th.
We will still be accepting applications after this date, but the scope of projects we fund will depend on decisions made in the first round.
