Project 3

ROKAS Raspberry Pi Staking Node

Scope of Work: Connect the ROKAS operating system to the SolarCoin blockchain Link:

Skill level: Blockchain/Dev (low), Solar (low or minimal), Monitoring Hardware (Medium).

Goals: We need more SolarCoin nodes globally that are easy to setup. This problem is solved with ROKAS. These people have written a wallet OS system that runs on any Raspberry Pi 2.

Background: ElectriCChain is a Blockchain As a Service (BAaS) and we are using the SolarCoin blockchain but are actually open and technology agnostic for collaboration and development with other blockchains such as Ethereum, lisk etc. The main aim of ElectriCChain is to build the largest open scientific solar monitoring system by connecting solar monitoring devices (data loggers, inverters, Raspberry Pi nodes) with the SolarCoin blockchain. We are always on the search for talented developers who can help us with this mission. The “new-language-layer” project is also important as it aims to facilitate building a cross- blockchain language for synchronization between blockchains. As JFK said when he gave a speech about sending a man to the moon,  “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” JFK and also a good philosophy that some of us like is “There is no success, no failure, only make. Keep making.” Unknown

Estimated Budget: 2-3 BTC or SolarCoin Equivalent plus 20 hours testing and debugging work for software devs.

End Dream: As many of these nodes as possible, Low cost and super easy to buy with SolarCoin, install and stake SolarCoins Generate solar value.


Timeline: Before May 2016 target – Project Completed and leading to DL
