This proposal is to provide ongoing funding during Evolution development to add developers to accelerate the Evolution release time. Funds will be used to pay developers for various parts of Evolution development from integration of Dash core and DashDrive, DAPI, and the Evolution web/mobile clients. Specific needs include:
With these funds we can incentivize new developers outside of the existing Dash community to help build the various componets of Evolution, deliver the end-product more quickly, and expand the Dash development community.
The type of development on which we will spend the funds will consist of a combination of contract-based freelancers, bounties we will post in the crypto community, and incentivizing people in the Dash community who aren’t active but might want to come forward if an incentive is provided.
The way these funds will be spent is:
- The Evolution team will propose specific work to outsource and the outsourcing approach (e.g., contract, bounty, etc)
- A PM is assigned and an agreement with the selected contractor in writing is reached OR criteria for a bounty will be written and published
- Work will be managed by the Evolution team and reviewed upon completion against deliverables / requirements
- For projects that come in under-budget, the difference will be allocated to other Evolution projects
Requested funding is as follows for the August 5th budget cycle:
