Project Coral Reef is an initiative created by Naveen Jain and Riccardo “fluffypony” Spagni to elevate the awareness and viability of using Monero in everyday consumer transactions. The initiative’s first campaign was launched in December 2017 to provide music fans a means to purchase artist merchandise using Monero during the holiday season and beyond. The project was financed by 180 anonymous contributors through a campaign on Monero’s Forum Funding System. This crowdfunding system allows the Monero community to fund projects that have the potential to positively impact Monero. Naveen and Riccardo would like to thank all of the Monero community members who contributed to this campaign, Global Merchandising Services, Manhead Merchandise, G-Eazy, and participating music artists.
