[Updates] NumerBay - The Community Marketplace

Hi CoE and everyone interested in NumerBay,

The original NumerBay proposal has become too long to navigate, so I’m starting this new one to post exclusively about updates to the project.

In addition, I’m testing out the Wiki function to allow anyone to add feature requests.

Thanks for your support.

2021-07-15 — 2021-07-17:
Sneak Peek:

  • Completed framework setup and base e-commerce frontend boilerplating.
  • Updated workplans, prioritized off-platform (Gumroad) integration and CI/CD, which would allow earlier release of code, more collaborations and earlier deployment of minimum viable product.
  • Revised some estimated hours based on recent work. Changes/additions to the workplans are in bold.

2021-07-18 — 2021-07-25:
Sneak Peek:


  • User will be able to login through Metamask (and potentially other providers) by signing a backend generated nonce, paving the way for crypto payment functionality
  • Completed generic user module (both frontend and backend), product listing UI is in-progress
  • Updated workplans and time estimates. Changes are in bold. Deprioritized buyer specific stuff as they are not yet necessary for 3rd party platform listings.
  • Next week to focus on seller onboarding and product related UI, middleware and backend.

Total Estimated Hours: 162
Recorded Hours Balance: 29 [For CoE: Recorded hours balance: 29 (1015 USD ~= 30 NMR at the time of writing) + 202.69 USD for domain name ~=6 NMR ==> 36 NMR in total]
Cumulative Recorded Hours: 51

The following includes changes from both the crypto_payment branch and the master branch, which have been merged today. (On-platform features are disabled as they are not completed yet. The eventual roll-out will be a turnkey operation.)

  • Completed a successful on-platform NMR test transaction using Numerai wallets (Good news: the transaction took only seconds to confirm): Etherscan
  • Added option to deactivate product without deletion, and option to set automatic expiration of product after a certain round. The round number on the product page now indicates the selling / pre-selling round (instead of the current active tournament round)
  • Added notifications in multiple places and rearranged profile pages to enhance UX
  • Thorough linting of backend code
  • Stricter input validation for both frontend and backend REST endpoints (API docs available here (Swagger) and here (ReDoc)
  • Other issue fixes and minor improvements
  • Work plan is in post #2
  • Next week to focus on seller submission experience and API automation of submission and distributtion

Total Estimated Hours: 279

I think the best way for stake mode to work, is for the seller to offer a comission rate to the buyer.

With (flat fee) + (stake limit): the fee is too high, for the little fish; the stake limit is too low, for the big fish. But a comission rate scales seamlessly, from the krill up to the blue whales!
