New POC Proposal
The project is the implementation of Apeiron Protocol, a protocol that provides a truly decentralized, secure, and direct on-chain correlation with the respective tokens, referred to as ‘Signs’. This includes a robust standard API for Signs within Consoles and Cartridges, enabling the deployment of fully compliant Console and Cartridges with the Apeiron Protocol, including a reliable bridge to the Ethereum mainnet.
Core Concept and purpose statement
This project aims to construct the main components of the Apeiron protocol on Cartesi, which will be ready for community usage. It also includes the development of an essential bridge for transactions between Cartesi and the Ethereum mainnet. This will expand the functional possibilities of Cartridges given the computational capabilities of Cartesi in comparison with other EVM chains.
Apeiron Protocol pre-draft: https://github.com/eth-sign/apeiron-protocol/blob/main/apeiron-protocol.md
How will you use Cartesi, specifically?
The Apeiron Protocol API will be written as OpenSource for Cartesi to build on top of this protocol, thereby giving the community the opportunity to start building on top of it: Cartridges, bridge to Ethereum mainnet. While the standard resides in the token reliability storage, the capabilities of the standard Cartridges in Cartesi will be more potent than in other blockchains, making it “worthwhile” to implement on Cartesi.
Please refer to the original proposal for a comprehensive description of the Apeiron Protocol and its operation: https://github.com/eth-sign/apeiron-protocol/blob/main/apeiron-protocol.md
Upon receiving the grant, I aim to deliver:
- The Proxy Smart Contracts Constructor (Consoles).
- The Execution Smart Contract for users (‘Pong’ Cartridge).
- The Execution Smart Contract for collections (‘Asteroids’ Cartridge).
- A Bridge for safe EIP-1492 token transfers between Cartesi and Ethereum mainnet.
This is an ambitious project, and to achieve it, I will be seeking contributions from within the Cartesi community. This includes development assistance and community interaction, with corresponding crypto retribution. The detailed plan is as follows:
*** Milestone 1: Team Formation in the Cartesi Ecosystem ***
Duration: 2 weeks
Deliverables: Team of 2 SC devs, 1 Communication officer, and 1 AMA and Documentation dev.
Requested funds: $2,000 USD
*** Milestone 2: Investigation and Communication ***
Duration: 3 weeks
Deliverables: Creation of a Twitter account with active and continuous community engagement, and architecture design for review.
Requested funds: $6,500 USD
*** Milestone 3: Proof of Concept Delivery ***
Duration: 2 weeks
Deliverables: Delivery of the initial version of the Apeiron Protocol standard smart contracts for testing.
Requested funds: $5,000 USD
*** Milestone 4: Deployment and Documentation ***
Duration: 2 weeks
Deliverables: Deployment of Proxy ‘Console’ Constructor, ‘Pong’ Cartridge, the bridge, and comprehensive documentation.
Requested funds: $5,000 USD
*** Total Requested Funds: [$18,500 USD] ***
Subsequent Vision and Extensibility
I believe that this project will significantly enhance the capabilities of the Cartesi platform and bring a host of innovative functionalities for its users. With your support, the integration of the Apeiron Protocol on Cartesi will be a giant leap forward in driving innovation, interoperability, and scalability within the blockchain ecosystem.
Reusability and Other Use Cases
- Digital Assets (photos, videos, music)
- IRL Assets (Products, Cars, Food)
- Properties (Land, Houses, Apartments)
- Rentals (Contracts, Airbnb, Hotels)
- Social Media activity
- Also: Keys to secret information
Success will be evidenced by the completion of the set milestones and widespread adoption of this protocol within the community for their development projects. Indicators of success include active discussions and increased interest in Twitter spaces, engagement during AMAs, extensive use and reference to the provided documentation, and dedicated community support offered through Discord. This support will be extended to both developers and enterprises aiming to implement this standard for their respective purposes.
Upon a failure of the POC, the Grants Council may still issue prorated payment if the applicant provides a written debriefing that sufficiently details the approaches used, why they failed, and what next steps would be if someone else were to resume the project. This will be shared with the community. Do you agree to provide this?
Yes I do

Role: EIP creator/dev & Project Manager
I am an inventor, life hacker, and an ardent web3 builder. Over the past eight months, I have made significant contributions to the blockchain space through various projects. I have extensive experience in cryptography, software architecture, and have been a developer since 1996.
clu3 service: This unique service is designed to protect smart contract functions from being exploited by bots. The defining characteristic of clu3 is that it uses off-chain humanity proof systems while functioning on-chain without reliance on Oracles. This ensures higher security and efficiency in managing smart contract functions. You can explore more about this open-source service here: https://clu3.framer.website/.
Datamorpho: A novel approach that allows files to undergo data metamorphosis based on cryptography principles. This innovative file standard not only enhances data security but also provides added layers of flexibility and functionality to file handling. The Datamorpho project was recognized as a top finalist in ETH Mexico, indicating its impact and potential in the blockchain domain. You can learn more about the project here: Datamorpho | ETHGlobal
Roll a Mate is a payment system - a meta-protocol that uses the Ethereum Mainnet Mempool for rollup gasless ($0) money transfers. Users simply transact on Ethereum Mainnet while the meta-protocol processes in the mempool. This can rely on Ethereum Mainnet or a sidechain for even more affordable rollups (withdrawals). We were finalists at ETH Global Waterloo: Roll a Mate | ETHGlobal
