Next Steps for MyNEARWallet: A Call for Maintainers

Learn how to submit a proposal to become a maintainer of MyNEARWallet.
2023-02-22 UPDATE:  Thanks to the thorough review done by the Wallet Standards Work Group experts, we’ve selected the Meteor Wallet team as the maintainer for the MyNEARWallet project.



MyNEARWallet is transitioning to the stewardship of DeveloperDAO and is being offered to the NEAR community to maintain and evolve. We invite the community to submit their proposals to become the maintainer of MyNEARWallet.

Requirements for chosen maintainer:

  • MyNEARWallet has to maintain a wallet on the same domain.
  • The MyNEARWallet codebase remains open source, since the wallet is used actively in the developer community and is closely integrated with NEAR developer tools.

Deliverables to chosen maintainer:

  • MyNEARWallet Codebase
  • Domain Name
  • AWS Infrastructure Accounts
  • Cloudflare Account
  • List of security requirements and concerns detailing a comprehensive security review with open issues that must be addressed

The Wallet work group will review these proposals and post an Attestation to their chosen proposal. We can have a security team do a separate review of security ops of the applicant and post their attestation if they pass. After the DevDAO makes the selection, the Wallet Builder group primarily will supervise the work.
