Proposal: Dash Electrum Support and Development Apr 2021


Well-known member
Electrum is probably the most popular open-source SPV wallet for bitcoin. Early 2017 I've picked up maintenance and support for DASH Electrum. Since then, I've assembled a small team of three developers. This is a proposal to fund the continuing development and support for Dash Electrum.

Execution and Schedule:

Work already performed or in progress. Deliverables are released publicly as soon as they are ready.

During next 3 months we plan to deliver the following:
  • follow the upstream development
  • fix dash-specific issues (see github)
  • improve performance
  • better multisig support out of the box (like, create 2-of-3 for your hw wallet, desktop, and mobile)

Amount requested:

After paying Mar salaries, we are 132.31 Dash left. Those funds will be rolled forward to the next period.

At current exchange rate of 223.51USD/Dash our run rate is ~67.12 Dash per month. Note, that due to changes in the team construction, our run rate increased.
  • 67.12 Dash * 3 month = 201.36 Dash
  • -132.31 Dash leftover
  • 5 Dash proposal submission
Total: 75.05 Dash or 25.01 Dash per month (26 Dash per month, rounded up)

As usual, in case of DASH appreciation, any leftover funds would be spent to extend the duration of the project. In case of DASH depreciation, we will go into a deficit mode again and will submit a new proposal after the end of this 3 month period.

Unless there would be material objection, this preproposal would be posted as complete proposal around Monday, Apr 5th.
