The polling vote DID NOT PASS. WHICH MEANS THE DIF HAVE NOT RIGHTS TO MAKE AN INVESTMENT WITHOUT THE MNO NETWORK APPROVAL.
That was not a polling vote, it was a budget proposal. It was the DIF asking for 500 Dash for three months. I think i voted NO on this specifically because i found the amount too high for three months.

I decided to vote NO on the funding part of this proposal, as i think the amount per month (500 Dash) is too high, particularly taking into account the 7,1% block reward reduction that will take place within this month.
I also gave this comment :

Unfortunately this budget proposal has transformed from being just a budget proposal seeking funding, to being both a budget proposal and a polling proposal seeking approval for the included 'Material change request'.
This is awkward to say the least.
As you can see I decided back then to ignore the polling part and just focus on the funding part of the budget proposal.
It really should have been left out of the budget proposal completely and either announced to the Dash community seperately or polled separately.
With regards to material change request :
After much internal discussion between the DIF supervisors we believe it’s in the DIF and the Dash network’s best interests to request a change to the current agreement that we submit decision proposals to the MNOs for approval on any investments, the requested change is to remove this requirement going forwards. In exchange for the proposed increase in autonomy, we propose an increased transparency of decision-making down to the individual level. In this way, the MN network can have further insight into each individual supervisor's thought processes, contributions and performance.
Well, not really a surprise to me. I always figured the DIF would go this way at some point.
They consulted the network a few times, and are now on their own. As i said before it would have been better if they announced this separately, but whats done is done.
When the DIF was created it was not created with the notion that every single decision about how to spend the DIF funds, is suppose to be voted upon by masternode operators. For the first few times yes, but at some point the idea has always been that the DIF would make their own decisions on how to spend the DIF funds. That is how i remember it at least from the early days, when the DIF was introduced to us.
