Proposal description

Dash Core Group June 25th Funding Proposals

DCG is submitting 2 funding proposals for the budget cycle that pays out  June 25th:
1) DCG Operations: 5,112 Dash per month (currently in month 1/3)
2) DCG Supplemental proposal: TBD on amount.

What does this specific proposal fund?

This proposal funds Dash Core Group's ongoing operating costs - this includes compensation, legal and infrastructure costs.  This is a single month proposal that will cover operating costs for July 2024.

Why is this not multi-month?

The emission reduces by 7% every year, this year it will happen next month, so in the interest of simplicity we are going to make a 1 month proposal now, and a 3 month proposal next month.

What is the proposal funding?

As of June 1st, 2024, DCG has 21 paid staff at full time/close to full time associated with the project and 3 part time contributors. In addition, we have 2 volunteers who have decided to work for no compensation and 2 people who have decided to work at minimal compensation. The amount of developers we currently have is given below.

We estimate that our projected run-rate for June for compensation will be around $160,000 and around $8,000 for infrastructure. With this current proposal, we are asking for total funding of $132,886 per month. While this is less than our run rate, often the supplemental that we also post makes up for the difference.

What does DCG's current structure look like?

DCG has evolved to primarily be a tech focused organization that can be grouped into 2 main parts, technology and technology support.

Cut off the issue of coins! 12,222,222 coins is enough!
This is a magical and monetary number!
It is vital to stop producing crap and sales will stop!
Only a radical and bold decision can revive the DASH coin, which is struggling in its death throes.
Since February 27, 2023, the value of DASH has fallen almost 10 times.
0.00319 BTC DASH has depreciated to 0.000366 BUT THIS IS NOT THE LIMIT OF THE FALL!!!
It's time to think with your head and not your butt.
