Tipping URLs are cool, but it adds friction for transactions. We could have a better solution for that.
Create an embeddable widget to easily accept ADA payments on websites.
This is the total amount allocated to Adatar.me Website Widget
Transferring assets in blockchain is not as easy as it should be. Wallet addresses are huge and ugly, there is a lot of copy-pasting, and many people use the strategy to make a small transaction - just to be sure everything is ok - before transferring all the assets. In practice, this doubles the transaction fee that the sender has to pay.
To solve this problem, we proposed adatar.me, a funded proposal from Catalyst Fund 6 (back then called ‘Gravatar for ADA Wallets’). We have launched in mainnet in February 2022, and you can check a live demo during our presentation in Gimbalab’s playground here:https://www.youtube.com/embed/_DiLlr_AxGk
The project is still ongoing, as we are improving the UX, developing the project’s visual identity and working on our API. If you’d like to support us, feel free to send a tip at https://adatar.me/tip/adatar.me (:
The current proposal aims at adding an extra feature to adatar.me: web widgets that can be embedded into other websites. This widget will allow people to transfer a variable or fixed amount of ADA, for example, to a specific wallet with only a few clicks - no copy-pasting, no test transaction. Some examples use cases:
The adatar.me website widget that we are proposing to develop in this proposal is going to be incorporated into other project’s websites. It will be open-sourced so it can be customized by them, to make the best out of it in each of its applications. In this way, we are building a tool that can benefit many other developments, and therefore, the whole ecosystem.
We are aligned with this possible direction mentioned in the challenge brief: “Developing common tools, frameworks, core infrastructures, or proof of concepts”.
Also, we are aligned with the following challenge KPIs:
We see this as a low risk development. The widget is something that we are sure we can develop, and we have the people to do it. The only risk we foresee is lack of adoption, which we might mitigate with our growth proposal, or depend mainly on organic growth. We expect to tackle this with this proposal: https://cardano.ideascale.com/c/idea/404995
The development of adatar.me widget is going to follow the road map presented below:
This proposal is going to be executed by Loxe Inc.’s team. The full team can be seen at https://loxeinc.com. The leadership team responsible for this project is:
Eli Selkin, L.C.S.W., M.S
Internally, we will use the Agile methodology to manage and keep track of our progress on this project’s development.
Externally, for audit purposes, we will track the progress according to the delivery of the milestones presented in the roadmap included in the feasibility section of this proposal. This progress report will be done through the monthly meetings with the challenge team and coordinator meetings with the IOG team.
Success for this proposal is to successfully develop the adatar.me website widget and to have a good adoption by the community.
As mentioned above, we will measure the success using the following KPIs:
This proposal is an extension of a previously funded proposal: https://cardano.ideascale.com/c/idea/367448. At the time, the project was called ‘Gravatar for ADA Wallets’, but it was renamed to ‘adatar.me’.
