Rod, I'm glad that DashCentral.org was able to let you post a description.
For some clarity, you are, of course, the proposal owner. You entered the payment address where funds will be sent. DashTreasury.org
does not escrow any funds, it just simplifies the posting process and provided you with a subsidy. It also lent you a hand in getting your proposal onto reddit and linking some relevant pre-proposal discussion, as well as digging up your old Youtube channel to make things easier for the MNOs.
DashTreasury.org is one of several places where proposal owners can post pre-proposals and official proposals. Since its launch less than two months ago, it has received over 20 pre-proposals, with 6 of them converting to "paid" proposal like yours. (Both of the two proposals that are on track to pass this month were posted at DashTreasury.org
and received subsidies.)
DashCentral.org is another site like DashTreasury.org. It was developed first, and offers a robust place for discussion. It does not offer proposal subsidies like DashTreasury.org. I believe that @rango
, the admin of DashCentral, currently requires the payment receipt of the proposal submission to claim ownership on his site. Perhaps in the future, he will also allow proposal owners to claim ownership on his site by signing their payment address. The process on posting on DashCentral.org is very technically involved, which is why some people prefer to post on DashTreasury.org.
runs another similar site at https://fundchan.com/dashincubator
. Jim's site has successfully launched official proposals as well, including Dash's Bug Bounty program which was funded last month. In addition to vetting, I believe that Jim's site focuses on crowdsourcing the funding for the 5 Dash fee.
The public Dash blockchain is the only "official" place that holds proposals. All other sites are "3rd party", labors of love, hobbies, decentralizing sites, whatever you want to call them. All sites that aren't the blockchain itself simply interface with the blockchain and are equally "official" or "unofficial". None of the current sites earn any money for themselves, and all serve the same purpose, which is to improve Dash by giving owners a place to submit proposals, and MNOs a place to discuss and view proposals.
