Project Description :page_facing_up:

Embeddable widget that allows any creator to bring crypto-based subscriptions/membership to their website using Radicle.

Similar to front-end widgets implemented below:

The vision for this product is BIG.

We could see it being used by any sort of creator, including but not limited to:

  • Writers and Publishers (e.g. substack like subscriptions)
  • Video makers (e.g. a “YouTube” for web3)
  • Music services (e.g. a “Spotify” for web3)
  • What else can you think of?

The main goal here is to abstract Radicle Drips such that it is integrated with anything online worth paying for. In essence, make it accessible to non-technical people.

Note: the goal is not to add to the backend (yet). No smart contract work is needed. This is focused on a front-end solution.

Nice RFP @bordumb !

Maybe to help scope the RFP a bit, we should look into integrating it into a specific interface/user flow first? I see that the UIs are for the Developer DAO Job Board. Is there appetite for MVPing this concept within one of their interfaces first?

If we can find an interface to start with then we could present this RFPs to their communities as well. Any work that goes into the specific interface could then be translated into an open, generalized tool.

have you made progress on this yet? we are doing something similar for another blockchain

Hi @drguy

This is an RFP (request for proposal), meaning anyone is welcome to apply with a proposed solution to do the work.

If you have some concrete ideas here, please feel free to respond to that to see if it’d make sense to fund the work.

Hello @bordumb!

I would like to know if this RFP is active?

Here is my work proposal. Thank you for your consideration.
