Boog90 submits CCS proposal to build alternative Monero node in Rust
Currently there is only one Monero node (monerod) and it’s built in C/C++. [..] Having just one implementation of monerod leaves the network vulnerable to attacks that target just one implementation, having multiple separate implementations would make the network more resilient to these attacks.
Total funding: 423 XMR ($45/h @ 35 h/wk). ETA: ~39 weeks.
- M1: Verification functions and random-x crate (110 XMR)
- M2: Database and network code to sync and store blockchain (110 XMR)
- M3: Final features (RPC, anonymity net support, pruning, Dandelion++) (203 XMR)
