The Gimbal Project Treasury + Escrow (GPTE) platform will allow builders to coordinate work as it bolsters project developments.

GimbaLabs recently unveiled a new kind of decentralized app (dApp) launched on the Cardano blockchain. The dApp dubbed The Gimbal Project Treasury + Escrow (GPTE), is aimed at supporting the development of projects on the Cardano network, as it assists builders looking to coordinate workflow.

The GPTE project comprises two Plutus smart contracts, GimbaLabs disclosed in a tweet Monday as it introduced the dApp. According to GimbaLabs, GPTE contains a Treasury Smart Contract and an Escrow Smart Contract, each supporting a unique feature for the application.

The Treasury Contract will be used for locking up project tokens as it serves as a holder for a pool containing the locked tokens; the Escrow Contract, on the other hand, will help manage commitments made by contributors, including locking and unlocking them at the appropriate time. GimbaLabs noted that the app utilizes transaction metadata thoughtfully, with transactions coordinated using a Cardano-based open-source library for dApp-building Mesh.

GPTE Included In GimbaLabs’ PPBL Summer Course

GimbaLabs has included GPTE in its ongoing Plutus Project-Based Learning (PPBL) Summer 2022 course. Consequently, interested parties can enroll in a course to acquire useful information on GPTE. Course materials will include tuition on Cardano GraphQL, Mesh, and Plutus fundamentals.

Following the conclusion of a course, GimbaLabs has promised a Contributor Token for all successful students, which gives them access to GPTE and an opportunity to become Cardano builders. With this, interested parties can contribute to GPTE.

GimbaLabs is Looking to Increase the Number of Cardano Developers with This Move

GimbaLabs has made the development of GPTE open and in real-time with the purpose of substantially increasing developers on the Cardano blockchain. Individuals who enroll for the PPBL Summer 2022 course will receive the orientation that will equip them with the right knowledge and tools to build on Cardano.

This should significantly increase the project’s building on Cardano and bring more attention to the network. Cardano already boasts over 1,000, with over 3,000 pools being run on the chain.

Furthermore, GimbaLabs disclosed another unique feature of GPTE, which allows for numerous instances of the dApp. GimbaLabs called it the “headless app” in this regard, noting that there is no definite frontend interface for communicating with the application, as anyone using the app can create their own “instance” of it.

“GPTE is a headless dapp. There is no single front end for interacting with it, and anyone can create their own unique instance of the dapp. This means that communities can use GPTE on their own terms, while also opting into a global reputation network,” GimbaLabs remarked.

The introduction of GPTE is another Cardano development to hit the community this month. The Crypto Basic recently reported the launch of the Cardano stablecoin Djed on the testnet, as it introduced Vasil compatibility and new user capabilities.
