Dash Watch performed a comprehensive review of all funded proposals to identify common pain points that can be addressed in the pre-proposal phase and relayed that information for Nexus to utilize. A summary of these results can be found HERE.
 
Milestone verification has been added to all reports, allowing MNOs to easily see which milestones listed by the proposal owner have supporting documentation and are verified as being complete.

Added KPI visualizations to Dash Watch reports tab HERE 
Dash Investment Foundation
  • Coordinate, validate and compile KYC eligible candidates from Dash Community
  • Created candidates profiles and web portal for organization of all candidate information HERE
  • Created candidate QA videos from questions gathered from the community
  • Worked with Dash Core Group to enable voting in the election with owner, voting, or collateral addresses
  • Developed new code to handle new voting address capabilities. For example, votes will not be counted twice if a MNO votes with a collateral address and voting address for the same Masternode.
Dash Watch Website
  • Migrated custom site (https://dashwatchbeta.org/) to Google Servers and under the original Dash Watch domain (https://beta.dashwatch.org/)
  • Built out and testing first iteration of public Dash Watch non-governance voting mechanism. This will be a voting system that is similar to the Trust Protector and Investment Foundation election. This voting mechanism is being built as proof of concept for future non-governance related consensus decisions. When completed, this first iteration will be used to help guide Dash Watch with MNO direction.
  • Made a v0.11.2 release as a deliverable for this month. It's basically a package of this month's changes:
    - Election section revision for Dash Investment Foundation
    - Proposal Page changes for the metrics overhaul + Nexus links;
    - Back-end changes to accommodate deployment on Google Cloud
    https://github.com/MattDash88/DashWatchBeta/releases/tag/v0.11.2
  • Working with Dash Core Group to bring in additional analytics data for measuring proposal engagement (i.e. Wallet/App downloads, Dash.org website metrics will be coming down the pipeline soon)
Ongoing Work:
  • Verifying and assisting with the Election for Dash Investment Foundation Supervisors
  • Video Q&A's for DIFS Candidates
  • Review and follow up with old proposal owners that have not had proposal marked as completed
  • Monthly reports for June ongoing and active Dash funded proposals
  • Continued expansion of the Dash Lab section of https://dashwatchbeta.org/labs

4 Person Team Salaries $12,050.00 75.31 Dash

  • Expansion of interactive data visualization for Dash Watch reports
  • Proposal owner video interviews focusing on the status of their proposal
  • Continue detailed verification reports for proposals that require additional attestations and due diligence work
