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.

Execution and Schedule:

Work already performed or in progress. Deliverables are released publicly as soon as they are ready.

During next 3 months we plan to deliver the following:
  • porting major upstream upgrade (3.x -> 4.x)
  • better multisig support out of the box (like, create 2-of-3 for your hw wallet, desktop, and mobile)
Amount requested:

After paying Sep salaries, we are 43.83 Dash left.  Those funds will be rolled forward to the next period.

At current exchange rate of 64.57USD/Dash our run rate is ~154.87 Dash per month.
  • 154.87 Dash * 3 month = 464.61 Dash
  • 43.83 Dash leftover
  • 5 Dash proposal submission
Total: 513.44 Dash or 171.15 Dash per month (172 Dash per month, rounded up)

As usual, 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 3 month period.

The DIF has a very long task list currently. Towards the bottom of that task list is storage of funds. I expect the DIF will be looking at a multisig solution, and am pleased to read the Dash Electrum will continue to offer and improve multisig support.
