Edd Norris Here!
One of the developers behind the ERGnomes NFT project, originally minter of the Ergo-Manifesto-Token and long time believer of the power of Ergonomic Economics
6 months ago I became a Governor for the Harmony ($ONE) Developer DAO to help build, learn and teach others about EVM and making blockchain video games (My background is in #GameDev), and I have also been building the blockchain Game https://FishFight.one…
I have not been as active in the Ergo Community as I would have liked over the 6 months but I have still been out on the mission, spreading the good word about ergonomic economics and decentralization; hoping to one day come back to reconnect with my fellow Ergonauts
With that said, I have been following as closely as I can and waiting for the day when my work outside of the ergo ecosystem would collide with my favorite proof-of-work blockchain!
That day is today!
Today I made a proposal to create a limited partnership between the Harmony Foundation’s Core-Team and the Ergo Foundation, to retool the xClaim-1BTC bridge built by the Harmony Foundation’s Core-Team to work with the Ergo Platform.
To Bridge $ERG from the Ergo Blockchain to the Harmony Blockchain as $1ERG (with this initial partnership)
and eventually to bridge both $sigUSD to Harmony and harmony specific tokens like their auto-staking $stONE to Ergo (after this initial partnership).
I believe it will be a very useful step towards getting the many features of ERG (value store/privacy features/Native Tokens) of Ergo to more people of the world.
It will provide many opportunities to extend the value that Ergo has and eventually the utility that Ergo has built beyond the Ergo ecosystem and eventually bring some of the interesting features that Harmony $ONE has built into the Ergo ecosystem.
Here is the post that I have made on the https://talk.harmony.one forums:
ErgoPlatform $ERG <-> $1ERG xClaim BRIDGE - Partners - Harmony Community Forum
I would love to hear any and all feedback from the Ergo Community about what you think about this and how it might be improved and/or effectively deployed; to bring ERG to the EVM compatible, Solidity programable, 2 second transactions having, energy efficient, “effective proof-of-stake” blockchain that is Harmony $ONE as $1ERG
if anyone wishes to comment on this forum, directly about anything listed in the above post, I’ll happily cross post if someone is willing to comment on the Ergoforum but may not wish to create a new account on talk.harmony.one ( I’ve learned that Governance/Community Participation is sometimes a “take what you can get” situation ).
@kushti @mhs_sam @glasgowm @Armeanio
I would like to formally ask what kind of commitment the Ergo Foundation can offer to support this project in some capacity.
Perhaps in some level of time commitment from Core Developers, or helping to fund the development of this Limited Partnership between the Harmony Core-Team and the Ergo Foundation, or providing liquidity or incentives for the xClaim-Bridge to operate successfully, or feedback about how a xClaim Bridge DAO token could be setup to help streamline these bridges for the long term.
Thank you all for your time today!
