New Monero Website

What the proposal is about:

I propose rewriting the Monero website to enhance its functionality, improve user experience, give it a modern and polished appearance and ensure it aligns with current web standards. This project aims to revitalize the online presence of Monero, making it more accessible and informative for both existing community members and newcomers.

I will be using the Astro framework to build the website, which is a Javascript static site generator that allows for the use of components and other modern web development features. This framework has been chosen for its flexibility, performance, and ease of use, making it an ideal choice for this project. It is also zero-javascript by default, which aligns with Monero's privacy and security principles. It should be accessible with Javascript disabled via Tor and I2P. The website will not require Javascript to function, but it could be progressively enhanced with Javascript for users who have it enabled.

The website will be designed to be responsive, ensuring optimal viewing and interaction across various devices, including desktops, tablets, and smartphones.

Regarding the design aspect, this website implements the Figma design that was made roughly three years ago by Hammermann09, announced in this Reddit post. The design is mostly done at 90% but there are still some tasks to address, such as the mobile menu, the blog page, the documentation, SVG images, etc. I am not a web designer and I would need one somehow.

I already have a working prototype of the website that can be seen here, hosted on my GitHub at

Who will complete the proposal?

I am Janaka, senior web developer with extensive experience in cryptocurrency. These past recent years, I have mainly been involved into Bitcoin and the Liquid network. I then discovered Monero and its community, and I am now eager to contribute to this project. I decided not to try hiding myself, so you can easily look up my GitHub profile at to see my previous work and contributions.

Why it is important for Monero and the community:

A well-designed and functional website is crucial for Monero's growth and community engagement. It serves as the primary gateway for users to access information about Monero, including its features, use cases, and latest developments. By investing in a website rewrite, we can enhance Monero's visibility, credibility, and user experience, ultimately fostering greater adoption and community involvement.

Milestones and projected timeline:

  1. English Responsive Website
    • Develop a functional responsive website with all pages in English.
    • Functional blog, documentation, and content pages (all the screens in the Figma design).
    • Ensure validated, accurate, up-to-date content, with all links working.
    • Seeking active feedback from the community on Matrix #monero-site channel.
    • Opening issues on the GitHub repository for feedback and bug reports everytime I have doubts or see room for improvement.
    • Eventually adding new content if needed, after community review via Matrix and GitHub issues.
    • Complete Figma design and address various design tasks (not done by me directly).
    • Estimated Completion: 3 months


I am willing to dedicate 20 hours per week to this project, at a $30 per hour rate. Using the current XMR/USD exchange rate of $147 per XMR, the cost of the project is estimated as follows:

Working 3 months, 20 hours/week, means 20 hours * 4 weeks * 3 months * 30 USD = 7200 USD = 49 XMR (more precisely 48,9795918367). To complete this first milestone I will need the help of a designer. My estimation for the remaining design tasks is around 15 hours of work. Anyone interested in completing these tasks can contact me directly or show up in the Matrix #monero-site channel.

The total cost of the project is 49 XMR.

Expiration date for the proposal:

If this proposal is not funded or completed by December 2024, the allocated funds will be released to other proposals or the General Fund. This ensures timely progress and resource allocation within the Monero community.
