This is the funding request for the audits for the RandomX Proof of Work algorithm that we've
been working on for the past year or so. Our aim has been to develop a PoW that requires any
implementation to include the major components of a CPU, and thus constrain all implementations
to have CPU-like performance. The code for RandomX is available for testing on
https://github.com/tevador/RandomX/
We solicited proposals from 4 different audit teams. One of these is already being paid for
by Arweave.org. The community voted to fund the other 3, in this priority order. The vote
occurred on https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/bozr0z/randomx_auditor_selection/
Like with the Bulletproofs audit, We are working with the Open Source Technology Improvement Fund (OSTIF),
which has generously offered to manage the exchange of XMR to fiat to pay the reviewers.
REQUEST
1. Kudelski 18,250 CHF ~ $18,094.04
2. X41 42,000 Euro ~ $46,902.58
3. QuarksLab $52,800.00
The total amount is around $118,000 (and may vary due to exchange rate fluctuations from USD
to CHF and EUR). The request is for 1400 XMR, using an exhange estimate of 1 XMR = 85 USD. Since
the funding is in fiat currency, this amount will be updated to reflect price fluctuations
until funded.
The reviews will be funded in this order as soon as sufficient funds are available.
