The Adosia Decentralized Manufacturing Marketplace as an MVP requires additional features to continue to provide a world class marketplace to the Cardano Blockchain.
Provide additional quality of life features to the Adosia Decentralized Manufacturing Marketplace that will enhance usability and increase adoption.
This is the total amount allocated to Adosia Marketplace Updates
The Adosia team will design, build, and deploy additional features to the Adosia Decentralized Manufacturing Marketplace. The minimum viable product for the marketplace was funded through Catalyst Fund 8. These additions and improvements will provide more features to the end users of the marketplace and improve the overall quality of the experience for manufacturers who participate in production for the marketplace.
The following features will be added to the core of the marketplace functionality:
About Adosia Decentralized Marketplace
Adosia's decentralized fulfillment network is essentially composed of numerous smart contracts, including contracts for the marketplace, the printing pool, quality assurance, NFT role minting, 3d printer and shipping and receiving.
The smart contract associated with the 3D printable NFT marketplace will house user-submitted 3D printable NFTs which contain one or more .stl files along with any designer royalties referenced in the NFT metadata. The user will interact with the marketplace smart contract, selecting all the NFTs they would like to have printed, which will then create a new "purchase order" NFT capable of traversing the decentralized Adosia 3D printer operator network. Once a user holds a purchase order NFT, upon paying an appropriate fee, they will be able to initiate a print job for that NFT with the Adosia network. Upon successful print job completion the printer operator fulfilling the print job will be paid the majority of Ada with the appropriate 3D designer(s) being paid designated royalties. The Adosia smart contract will also earn a small fee for the Adosia treasury, with all participants being incentivized early on with Adosia ADO tokens.
All on-chain functionality will be provided by the printing pool, purchase order, and printer registration contracts. These contracts will allow a customer to get a purchase order and have a registered printer accept the job for printing. The printer registration process has already started with the Adosia ambassador program.
What To Expect
Users will be able to buy an NFT of a purchase order that will allow them to choose to print one of our special designs via a registered space printer. The printer will then ship the 3D object to the user who will receive the object and confirm its quality. At this point, the purchase order will be returned to the user and the printer will be paid ADA for their services. It is a simple product but it shows what is technically possible now. Blockchain and the tangible world will mesh together and this is just a stepping stone along that path.
This solution will address the challenge through the key metric of increased quality of existing products & integrations through suggested improvements that are supported by customer feedback or increased usage by the community. Integrating these features will position Adosia for more rapid market penetration.
The primary risks in this project revolves around the Shipping Integration and the Queuing tools. We will attempt to work with multiple shipping interfaces, and complete as many as possible, but we understand that some of the shipping interfaces may not be able to integrate easily, and as such, we may have to create workarounds. The Queuing tools will require careful design so as to avoid a system that discriminates unfairly.
The Adosia development team will design, build, and implement six new features to the Adosia marketplace in a 4 month timeframe. Each of the 6 new features will be developed and deployed by the team, and will be monitored.
The Adosia team currently meets regularly six (6) times per week across various teams. We regularly track relevant action items, tasks, needs and progress and we adapt as necessary.
We keep target timelines and measure progress against those while regularly refactoring to account for unknown unknowns as they are revealed

This project will be concluded at the end of this round and will not require additional funding. If we choose to develop additional features for the system in the future, we may request additional Catalyst funding.
The team will use a combination of git and trello to manage the project's progress. The project manager will prepare and submit the monthly reports to Catalyst with percent completed on the projects listed in this proposal. The Adosia team currently meets regularly six (6) times per week across various teams. We regularly track relevant action items, tasks, needs and progress and we adapt as necessary.
The six additional features listed above deployed to the Adosia Decentralized Manufacturing Marketplace.
This proposal is a continuation of a few different proposals submitted by various team members.
In Fund 8 Adosia was successfully funded for the initial MVP of this marketplace and the CardanoBox system. https://cardano.ideascale.com/c/idea/405271
This proposal from Fund7 was a lightweight implementation of the model outlined under this proposal (not funded): https://cardano.ideascale.com/c/idea/385120
This proposal submitted by Jia in Fund7 was funded, and provided the SpaceX engineers compensation to design all the rocket parts needed to execute a dynamic 3D printable rocket NFT drop: https://cardano.ideascale.com/c/idea/383141 - The Adosia ambassador team is currently printing all rocket parts as we vigorously are iterating through tests to ensure Adosia delivers the highest quality design.
These proposals support facilitation of a parallel initiative to enable embedded IoT device integration and p2p relevant marketplaces for IoT device operating profiles:
This proposal enables an embedded library to create keys, sign transactions (or arbitrary data) and to verify message data for IoT device authentication. https://cardano.ideascale.com/c/idea/324317
