This proposal is disabled.


What problem(s) are you trying to solve? The donation for websites which run on deep web without any funding. This will increase both the number of onion sites and motivation for the deepweb developers.

How much?

What is the total cost in WOW? List expenses per item. Total hours of work and per hour rate. What exchange rates are you using? Currently, the total cost of wow is expected to be roughly 7000 wows. however, even if the cost exceeds this value we will complete the project and post it here. Since, there are 4 people who will more more than 3-4 hours a day from thier schedule for 30 days to fully complete the project. Rest the materials we are using is our own laptops and PC's and the coding softwares will be open source. Each of them will be getting around 8-12 wow ~$4 an hour per person for their work for 30 days. We all are trained professionals working a full time job in IT firms. We will be doing it as a part time work.


The idea is based on donations with complete anonymity this can be done using the tor. Since the wow wallet already runs on tor network. These donations or transactions have extremely low possibility of getting tracked. This was the real motivation for the bitcoin. However, constant interference of govenrment and private industries both bitcoin an+d ether is getting compromised everyday. The extension is a simple tool which will strictly allow the website owners only to make their donation link(Their wow wallet address) avalible to the users who are surfing to their page with a donation link button tagged to the tor browser. This will be a similar system to BAT donations but will only work in TOR and will be extremely anonymous.


1: We will be encouraging more deepweb sites designer to run and maintain their sites. Since we know that goverment practically interferes with every possible financial instument avalible in the world. This system will lead to greater privacy centered model and more private transactions.

2: After completion of this extension there is a possibility that people will start using the wownero as a default tor currency and they will replace their BTC link in onion sites with the wownero links.

3: The TOR browser never retain the information nor it discloses the location and browser activites. Thus, a wownero user will always be at ease of not getting caught for any sort of activities which are illegal or banned by their respective countries.


What will be delivered? What goals will be reached? The extension will posted in wownero forum and will be provided to this site simultaneously. The goal is to make the wownero a default currecncy of tor network. this will surely increase the importance and price of wow. Also, since wow is limited currency, there is a possibility that it can rise above the $2 mark in the near future with this project. Maybe even more.

Why you?

What skills and experience do you have? Person 1: Worked in IT industry for 5 years. Specializes in C#. Person 2: Economics reseracher, Doing PhD, has web development skill. person 3: Worked in and out of IT industries for 6 years. Specializes in web designing. person 4: Worked in IT for 2 years. Android app designer.

dsc [admin] 2021-07-05 10:04 Sorry dude, but please resubmit this proposal with all relevant technical details - such as the fact it will be using a mail network. I'm going to close this one for the time being - feel free to create a new proposal with everything included. Please properly make use of markdown, it supports bullet points and stuff, which will make the proposal more clear :) Thanks for your time though so far. reply
_xxfedexx_ 2021-06-16 13:58 This would be very nice - but why admins see this and don't approve? reply
squishee 2021-06-16 14:16 dont speak for others.. but from my perspective this bounty looks like
* do unclear work with no security consideration
* wow becomes dominant coin on tor
* profit
all for the goal, just would like to see it specked out a little more. suggested the author extend the gpg based "OMG" guidelines which are already widely in use on the tor network and their reply left me with even less confidence
qvqc [admin] 2021-06-12 11:21 Why would we do this over something like openalias(and there are other tools that do the same thing)? It already supports onion, i2p, bitdns. If we are going to create centralized infrastructure with plans to integrate with wowlet, may as well use a more well known service.
an effort towards this goal is amazing, but I think the price on this request is way high and the integration plans are clumsy
anonywow [op] 2021-06-13 04:20 That's exactly what we are aiming for a donations.xml backend file that everyone can have access to in the extension. to confirm and report errors in addresses.
qvqc [admin] 2021-06-12 12:38 my reading of openalias docs was clumsy.. it does not support i2p or onion.
but still.. how to justify important centralized infrastructure that can be easily manipulated by an unknown party who may or may not have any interest in wownero community? openalias at least has certificate chains
would be more excited to see an extension to the omg guidelines "onion mirror guidelines". something like an additional signed donations.txt in the root web directory. this could give us the benefit of working with existing tor browser, go, and python anti-phishing tools to prove the validity of donation addresses
dsc [admin] 2021-06-10 09:01 Will the extension scan the webpage with a regex for wownero addresses? How does it link to a wallet in case you want to make a donation? reply
wowario [admin] 2021-06-22 04:44 " owners can mail us their wow wallet address along with the proof of their owning the website"--- hmm.. that sounds too centralized and there is a risk replacing wow addresses and exist scamming. I would suggest coming up with a "trustless" solution.
anonywow [op] 2021-06-11 13:11 We have thought about linking the wallet however it will be much more complicated since we cannot integrate the wallet to the extension. It will be similar to creating a wallet in extension that will create security and trust issues.
A much better way will be creating the extension in the wallet itself. We are planning about that since the wallet is open source and we can put our own version in GitHub later on. However, if this extension is a success we will later update it more to create a wallet within the extension similar to metamask, though it is a long and much more difficult but an interesting task.
We can add regex to scan for wownero address but I think very few people are currently using it as for donation links on their page, it is a very good idea.
The extension dedicated to wow will be the surest way to move people towards using wow.
For now we will add 3 things to the extension.
The address(wow) copy clipboard link
The description of the webpage provided by owners and
The level of danger on the scale of 10 of using that site.
anonywow [op] 2021-06-11 12:43 There will be an anonymous mailing network service by which the owners can mail us their wow wallet address along with the proof of their owning the website(Nothing more nothing less). Either this email service will be set up by us or we can always use the or or websites to receive emails. That receiving email will be posted on TOR, Monero, Bitcoin, and wownero forums mentioning the details of this extension. By this, we can allocate the wallet address of the onion sites holder to the extension. So if the user visits the website he/she can see the address for donation purposes. This will be very helpful for the people who run the undercover forums. By this we will be encouraging the sites like WikiLeaks in the deep web to have proper resources by having the wow currency by donations. Also, targeting the importance of wow in anonymity.
wowario [admin] 2021-06-10 03:44 wownero, the default currency of tor network < you got my vote +1 reply
wowario [admin] 2021-06-22 04:44 change to -1 until this can be done in a trustless way.
wowario [admin] 2021-07-21 06:46 Moved to status "Disabled".
dsc [admin] 2021-07-05 10:05 Moved to status "Completed".
