Proposal: Dash Electrum Support and Development Jul 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 work on the following:
  • follow the upstream development
  • fix dash-specific issues (see github)
  • improve performance
  • alternative mixing capabilities

Amount requested:

After paying Jun salaries, we are short of 30.88 Dash. Reimbursement of those funds will be included in this proposal.

At current exchange rate of 139.36USD/Dash our run rate is ~107.64 Dash per month.
  • 107.64 Dash * 3 month = 322.92 Dash
  • 30.88 Dash drawdown
  • 5 Dash proposal submission
Total: 358.8 Dash or 119.6 Dash per month (120 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, Jul 5th.
