GIGx

Project Overview

Title: GIGX
Description of the project: The GIGX project features a utility token, and a DApp (GIGX Pad). GIGx Pad is a blockchain powered crowdfunding DApp. Our goal is to bridge real world projects, and Investors that want to utilize the full potential of Decentralized Finance (DeFi). GIGX is a Multi-utility token powering the GIGX ecosystem.

How will this project be integrated into Conflux?
The GIGX Pad (DApp) is built on the Conflux network.

Why is your team interested in creating this project?
In today’s African financial system, there is a lack of funding for businesses; only the largest businesses in prime networks get direct access to liquid capital markets, as a result short and mid-term borrowing is extraordinarily expensive. We believe we can solve this problem by leveraging the blockchain, and decentralized finance.

Overview of the technology stack being used:

System Specifications / System Architecture
The System is built on the NodeJS server which is a cross-platform runtime environment for developing server-side and networking applications.

The System is built using the following tools and services:

  •   Nodejs
    

The System is built on the NodeJS server which is a cross-platform runtime environment for developing server-side and networking applications, Using the expressJS framework.

  •   Nginx
    

We also run the application on a secured Nginx web server, which is known for its high performance, stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption, also secured with SSL certificate.

  •   MongoDB
      	MongoDb is a document database with the scalability and flexibility that you want with the querying and indexing that you need.
    

Product/System Flow:
The product begins with creating a wallet for a user and performing either of the two options of depositing or withdrawing, the deposit process is straightforward where the user deposits through a gateway payment system and gets credited with the equivalent at the current exchange price.
Whilst withdrawal is divided into two parts which is the cash withdrawal or GIGX withdrawal to an external address. While withdrawing to an external address is pretty simple by entering the amount and address the cash withdrawal requires admin approval before it can be processed by the external payout service. Below is a diagrammatic explanation of the Product/System Flow:

How can the project benefit Conflux Network’s ecosystem?
GIGX brings a new way for institutions, and retail investors to access investments across Africa. This will bring in millions of new users to the Conflux network ecosystem overtime, and position Conflux as a leading network across Africa.

Thanks for submitting! Quick question to start. Do you envision this as sort of a Polkastarter for real world projects?

Hi, thank you for applying for a Conflux Network grant.

The target market is a good choice, Africa still has a lot of untapped potential for crypto and Conflux Network could serve as the foundation for many exciting projects.

  1. From your description I did not fully understand what your project does. Is it a crowdfunding/launchpad/IDO platform (like Polkastarter as @SmoothCB suggested)? If this is the case, how will you ensure high quality projects and avoid scams? How do you plan to deal with the potential legal issues arising from facilitating ICOs?

  2. You also mentioned fiat/cash deposit and withdraw. Do you plan to implement it yourself or use a 3rd-party provider?

  3. The “Product/System Flow” section is missing a lot of details, you basically only describe the deposit/withdraw process. Please extend this section.

  4. Please describe the milestones that belong to the scope of this grant application, each with a time frame and specific deliverables that we can evaluate objectively.

I think this will be a game-changer connecting traditional finance with Web3 finance! Would love to participate in any beta program!

With your roadmap can you elaborate more on the different milestones/deliverables.

Africa is an undervalued market and look forward to welcoming you to Conflux soon.

Very Respectfully,

Yes, with staking pools that also represent real world business activities.

Thank you @Christian, we share that belief as well and sorry for the delayed response.

Please join our telegram page and our waitlist to be among the first to know when we launch our beta. Links are on our website @ gigxpad_dot_com

Thank you @Tristception, sorry for the delayed response.

Our first goal is to launch the Gigx wallet to allow users to store the tokens.

The second is to integrate with real-world businesses to onboard new users to the wallet while the third is to launch the GIGXPAD platform where the real-world pools will be hosted.

In general, our goal is to bring the beauty of Defi through the staking of GIGX tokens in pools consisting of real-world businesses to provide liquidity for the businesses, and rewards are earned in the form of tokens from the activities of the businesses.

For phase one of this project, we will source for real-world businesses to kickstart.
