and with a strong partner on board.

It’s now nearly one year ago, that Gorilla Funds has submitted an initial proposal for building the Gorilla Funds Fund Page Builder. With the occurrence of corona and the crypto winter I got cold feet. I was unsure if I can deliver what I proposed to deliver. Especially because I did not have additional sources of funding. So, I stepped back from the proposal. I asked the (that point in time) Melon DAO, to postpone the decision of the proposal — as I did not think the time was right. But this did…

Funds easily accessible for everyone. That’s our mission.

Sometimes in life a tiny little thing happens — a little click — and then the path to the future is suddenly different.

For me that “click” was the article “Graphing the melon protocol” — published in September. You can read it here:

I read it, I played around with it

…and immediately I knew that I would have to get my hands dirty. Could it really be so damn easy? Yes! The Graph is amazing; it’s the perfect tool to query data about the Funds on the Melon Network. …

Hello, I’m Jakob Sievers, developer of Gorilla Funds, a new project which aims to make investing and redeeming in Melon Funds as easy as possible. Gorilla Funds is an early stage, work in progress, but in what follows I want to explain what Gorilla Funds is all about and where I want to take it.

The basic idea behind Gorilla Funds is:

One page, one fund — Every active fund on the Melon network has its own page on Gorilla Funds with all the necessary information, a clear overview and an easy UI just for investing and redeeming. One page…
