NavCoin Development Projects


Development is important for NavCoin ecosystem to self-sustain and grow

Developers are a core part of the NavCoin community - we’re always looking for more people to help build new projects, and contribute to the wider NavCoin ecosystem. Whatever your skill set or experience, there are a range of projects you can help with. From fixing bugs, testing new releases, to creating your own project that uses NAV. In NavCoin, everyone gets decides what they work on.

Community fund helps you build projects

The NavCoin community fund can help you get paid for your contributions. All you need to do is submit a proposal, and the community votes on whether they think it adds to the NavCoin ecosystem. There is 500,000 NAV available in the fund each year for proposals, and it’s open to anyone.

Benefits for developers

If you’re looking to get involved with crypto, this is the perfect opportunity for you. There are a range of ways to contribute, and you’ll be surrounded by a passionate community of developers who you can reach out to for help. Not only will you be learning new skills, but you’ll also gain a reputation among the community as someone who’s keen to help out.

“Fund yearly/bi-yearly server costs for sites like the block explorer (any smaller period than that is probably too short for voting to pass). It can help fund people to create new tools/sites/walls or improve existing ones. New paper wallet anyone?”

— Matt

3. Type your project name in the first text field. (For example : my-awesome-project)

4. Then hit / on your keyboard, an empty input field will appear.

5. Type in the new input field.


Now we have created an empty Markdown file for your project card. (If you haven't heard of Markdown, you can think of it as a normal plain text file with additional web features.) Next we'll learn how to add content to it.

Step 2: Fill out the markdown template

Copy the template below to the you just created. If you want to customize the background icon for your project, you can pick one from here.

Here's an example of a completed template for Nav Explorer:


Step 3: Commit and create a pull request

Tips: Pull requests let you tell others about the changes you are about to make to the website, the changes won't happen straight away until it's approved by 4 other contributors. Here is how to do it

1. Commit - after you happy with the Markdown file, scroll down and hit Commit new file. Add some comments and decriptions if you need to for others to know more about your change.

2. Add Reviewers
