New Elections, Proactive & Reactive Rewards
This month the Community Funding Board focused on rewarding the great work carried out by Nimiq community members and supporting the proactive initiatives suggested.
The time has also come to hold new elections to vote in the third round of community representatives. So, we’ll dive into all that and more in this blog post.
The Community Funding Board decided to support the Nimiq Meme Twitter account, which was an initiative started by one of our community members. The Board determined that a small proactive reward should be granted and that the new Twitter account would be given 30k NIM to be used for giveaways and further expand the reach of Nimiq Memes.
Thank you James, keep it going!
The Board also recognized that James Warren had become one of the most active posters in Nimiq’s Telegram group over the last three months. James had not only dedicated a lot of time into helping create a very positive vibe in Telegram by making it rain cashlinks, but he had also answered numerous questions from the community to a very high level indeed. The Community Funding Board decided that the time has come to recognize his efforts in the form of a small NIM reward and we certainly hope to continue seeing him around in Telegram for months to come.
In terms of ongoing community bounties, Nimiq has received Java and Go RPC client submissions. The core team already reviewed these and community bounties will be distributed for these providing they pass quality assurance tests during the review.

Nimiq’s vision for the Community Funding Board is to work with three elected community representatives to determine which community initiatives to support and to act in the best interests of Nimiq’s expanding ecosystem. You could say that the ethos is ‘by the community, for the community’.
However, the term for current community representatives is coming to an end. We’d like to thank Matt, Wekkel and Chugwig for their service to the community over the last few months and announce that new Community Funding Board elections will be held.
Anyone interested in having a deeper say in the Nimiq community and playing a critical role in Nimiq’s future should certainly consider putting themselves forward as a Community Representative candidate.
Team Nimiq recognizes that there are varied interests within the community and that’s why we’d ideally like a community representative from each of these interest groups:
This way we can better serve the overall community as a whole and do our best to ensure that the interests of everyone are represented.
If you think you are up to the challenge, then you should know that:
Sounds like something you want to be part of?
Well, put yourself forward as a community representative candidate before midnight, March 2 UTC.
All you need to do is to email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Richy on Telegram @RichyBC with a short summary of why you think you’ll make an awesome Community Funding Board Representative. Each new candidate will be announced on Nimiq’s Twitter account in real-time. So make sure you keep your eyes peeled there and start thinking about which candidate you want to vote for. Candidate submissions will close on March 2 at 23:59 UTC.
After candidate submissions have been closed, the voting app will be configured and we expect the voting to start on March 3 at 02:00 UTC and end March 5 at 23:59 UTC.

Team Nimiq joins YouTubers MrBeast and Mark Rober in the #TeamSeas effort to clean oceans, rivers and beaches. For every $1 donated through the Nimiq shop, the Nimiq Foundation will donate an extra $1 to their effort. That means each dollar donated via Nimiq will remove 2 pounds of trash from the ocean.

What good is a decentralized monetary system if the entry and exit are centralized, custodial, and prone to censorship?

A while back, we connected with Salamantex through the partner network of TEN31 Bank. They have been working on crypto payment terminals for some time, starting from their own hardware and now integrating into existing credit card payment terminals. It was immediately apparent that we wanted to partner to bring NIM to brick and mortar shops. And now this dream has become a reality!
