Proposal description

This is a cross-post from Dash Forum

As previously communicated, we are presently building out the foundational elements needed for Evolution in Dash-Core and Dash-Evolution completely separately to accelerate the process. These pieces will be connected together in a later release for the full realization of Evolution.

On the Dash-Evolution side, we already began funding graphic design and porting of the X11 hash function to JavaScript in the July budget. On the Dash-Core side, we are fast approaching the completion of v12.1. Consequently, we are beginning to plan for the next phase of development starting in August.

Evan has been the workhorse behind the Dash-Core progress to date, along with some support from part-time core team developers. For the 12.2 DashDrive release, we would like to accelerate development by funding additional Dash-Core resources to work for Evan. The specific skill set will be C++ programmers familiar with the Bitcoin and / or Dash code base.

The funding requested will begin in August at ~$3,300 per month and is expected to continue through March. This particular proposal covers only one month of costs. When the 12.1 system launches, we will submit a more permanent ongoing proposal (since all existing proposals will terminate when 12.1 is deployed).

Requested funding is as follows for the August 5th budget cycle:
Total: 430.37 Dash

Note: Any unused funds from this Dash-Core development funding will be directed toward other development expenses.
