Proposal description

Electrum is probably the most popular open-source SPV wallet for bitcoin. Early 2017 I've picked up maintenance and support for DASH Electrum.  Since then, I've assembled a small team of three developers.  This is a proposal to fund the continuing development and support for Dash Electrum.
Scope and deliverables:
Since last proposal, we've
Execution and Schedule:
Work already performed or in progress. Deliverables are released publicly as soon as they are ready.
We are positioning Dash Electrum as the default front-end for dash ecosystem, with focus on privacy by default.
Our current roadmap is the following:
  • keep up with the upstream development
  • submission of Android version to Google Play and FDroid
  • instantsend support
  • coding in the new Bluetooth hardware wallet support, including mobile support (with cooperation with HIDEEZ)
  • privatesend support
  • applets/plugins:
    • masternode monitoring
    • budget proposals monitoring (incl. discussions)
    • pay for fiat services
    • point of sales
    • shared masternodes
Note that we're working half time on the project, so things take longer than we expect.
About me:
I'm active software developer for over 25 years and for last 15 years I develop mainly in Python. I'm in DASH since late 2014 (you can track my posts on the forum). I package dash electrum for more a year now.
Amount requested:
This time we will request 3-month funding that would cover our burn rate at current exchange rate which is $92.77USD/Dash at the moment of this post.
Budget calculation:
  • proficit at the Mar 5th: 7.84DASH
  • burn rate: 55.54DASH for 3 month = 166.62DASH
  • proposal submission fee: 5DASH
Total: ~180DASH over 3 month or 60DASH per month.
To provide transparency, funds would be directed to a separate wallet, as with previous proposal.
In case of DASH appreciation, any leftover funds would be spent to extend the duration of the project. In case of DASH depreciation, we will go into a deficit mode again and will submit a new proposal after the end of this 3month period.

general q: who's the target audience for Dash Electrum wallet? vs. the other Dash wallets that are already out there

Personally it is my preferred wallet when using a HW wallet. Dash Electrum is much more capable than the standard Trezor wallet.

Friendly reminder to Masternodes: All your votes from last month are cancelled, null and void. Unlike previous months where successful proposals can kind of coast because all their YES vote carry over, this month, THEY DON'T. Please go vote so that we don't leave deserving proposals high and dry. If you are having problems voting, this thread will likely solve your problem, otherwise ask.

The clock is ticking.....17 hours. Let's get after it!

I am not sure why it taking so long to have instant send, should have been in the wallet already.
Why it's it ?

The original plans were delayed due to reducing in funding: since Dec last year we work 50% time. Most of that time goes to following the upstream development.

Additionally, after spork 16 activation, all transactions are automatically InstantSend.

Next on our plate is PrivateSend.

PrivateSend in a light wallet will be a game changer for many people. Hope to see this proposal pass.

Sure would be nice to have Private send in an SPV wallet. Oh look, it's in the roadmap here. Let's make this happen, people. Great development so far.
