Dash Core Group March 1st Funding Proposals

What does this specific proposal fund?
This proposal funds Dash Core Group's ongoing compensation costs - including all developers, administrative, business development, marketing and support staff.  This is a multi-month proposal that will cover compensation for March and April.  

As of February 2020, DCG has 31 paid staff associated with the project.  In addition, we have 3 volunteers who have decided to work for no compensation.  Out of the 31 paid staff, 7 have volunteered to significantly reduce their salaries while we face budget issues.  In total 10 volunteers are working for reduced or no compensation.

Our run-rate in February will be $200,000 after taking into account voluntary pay reductions. 
With the current proposal, we are asking for funding of $341,000 per month. At the current Dash price of $119 we will be putting away a portion of our funding towards our reserves.  Our reserve is at slightly above 1 month salary expense run-rate and urgently needs to be replenished.  We target, at a minimum, a three month reserve in our compensation account.

If you have any questions, please direct them to @glennaustin ensure we are notified of your request.

Requested funding is as follows for the March and April budget cycles:
· 2,868.5 Dash for core team compensation per month ($341,000 USD @ $119 per Dash)
·        5 Dash proposal reimbursement (2.5 Dash per month)
Total: 2,871 Dash per month

Note: Should any funding remain, we will apply it toward future compensation expenses and related taxes.
