    I'd like to get your advise on best course of actions...

    Given big drop in the dash exchange rate this year, the dash electrum budget is running out of funds (again). Actually, at current rate it's not enough to cover even August. Our run rate is $10K per month, which is ~71DASH now.

    For last month I was working to secure a commercial gig to get paid for integration of a new hardware wallet into Dash Electrum (and then - other Electrum family clients), but the process is not yet completed.

    At the same time, Dash Budget is already strained enough for us to try to plug into..

    What would be the best course of actions?

    - Submit 3month proposal at 71DASH/mo right now?
    - Pause the work at Sep 1st and then decide?
    - Other option?

    Thanks

    Aug progress:

    - 3.2.2.1 release
    - catched up with upstream
    - dark theme
    - libsecp256k1 and pycryptodome ppa dependencies
    - preparation for the upcoming upstream release
    - preparation for tighter Tor integration (see next post)
    - trezor updates
    - ubuntu cosmic preparation

    Now we'll have minimal delay before upstream (bitcoin electrum) will update.

    Aug financials are attached. Due to exchange rate decline, we're officially underwater now, since today, Sep 7 I've paid Aug salaries and we're -42.5Dash in red.

    Dash Electrum 3.2.3 released with upstream changes:

    * hardware wallet: the Safe-T mini from Archos is now supported.
    * BIP39 seeds: if a seed extension (aka passphrase) contained
    multiple consecutive whitespaces or leading/trailing whitespaces
    then the derived addresses were not following spec. This has been
    fixed, and affected should move their coins. The wizard will show a
    warning in this case. (#4566)
    * Revealer: the PRNG used has been changed (#4649)
    * fix Linux distributables: 'typing' was not bundled, needed for python 3.4
    * fix #4491: on Android, if user had set "uDASH" as base unit, app crashed
    * fix #4497: on Android, paying bip70 invoices from cold start did not work
    * Several other minor bugfixes and usability improvements.

    Next we will release minor update, which will turn TOR on if detected automatically, more stuff renamed from Electrum-DASH to DASH Electrum, some other minor changes.

    Can we go for "Dash Electrum" instead of "DASH Electrum"? No other wallet writes the name "Dash" in all caps. All caps "DASH" should be reserved for describing units of account, e.g. "100.00 DASH"

    See the Dash Core wallet for examples of how to do this correctly.

    Ok, sure. It will be "Dash Electrum". Wrote all caps due to the lack of sleep :)

    Electrum is hands down the most flexible HD wallet available for Dash. Combined with cool new privacy functions like Tor by default, I consider it an indispensable part of the Dash ecosystem. It's gonna be magic once DAPI is live.

    This repository is used only for integration now. The team does the actual work in their own repo's and then integrate back to ours.

    Also, take into attention, that since Dec'18 we've moved to half time due to the budget cuts/Dash depreciation.
