Haveno submits second largest CCS proposal ever, looking for $231K (1543 XMR) to build user interface

The Haveno1 team has submitted the second largest CCS2 proposal ever, looking to raise $231,000 USD (1543 XMR) for front-end development:

While work on the backend is ongoing, we found ourselves with the need of a dedicated and skilled frontend team for building the user interface. After a scrupulous research, we decided to work with Viabl, a skilled team with decades of frontend development in their portfolio.

Total funding proposed: $231,000 (1543 XMR).

ETA (period): 4-6 months (TBD).

If fully funded

The funds are to be sent to Haveno every month for 4 months, with the first milestone payment upfront:

For simplicity, we ask the funds to be sent to us every month for 4 months, with the first reward being sent as soon as our proposal is considered funded.

Provided the development costs turn out to be lower, excess funds will be used for:

Haveno would post progress reports on Github and on Matrix/IRC chatrooms3.

If not fully funded

The team proposes that the CCS proposal should not be considered a fail:

This means if the ccs won’t be fully funded, won’t be considered failed, but partly funded. In that case we will explore other ways to gather the remaining needed funds.


The operative exchange running Haveno will be for-profit. Meaning the collected fees will go to the operators of the exchange.

The Haveno core team won’t run the operative exchange. That will be done by another entity.

The community is currently assessing the viability of this CCS proposal on Gitlab2 and Reddit4.

This is the second largest CCS proposal to date, only trailing the Monero Atomic Swaps implementation5 funding proposal, which is still a WiP since October 2020.
