    Please see the Feburary Update to see our past performance, and please use the site and report any and all feedback. We currently have a few proposals which need voting on! We hope that next cycle will be able to have more funds available.

    So this cycle runs from the 11th to the 22nd....will that be a typical cycle?

    I like the idea of payouts happening two or three times a month keeping things moving!

    This is very cool! How is the pot size determined? Sorry I missed that part.

    I can't wait for all of the people we miss in pre-proposal phase to start using this! We will get so many more people on with this.

    Great work! Crack a cold one-as the proposal says!

    Hi Blake,

    Thank you for your comments.

    Each cycle is made up of the following values: Available Budget | Max Payout | Proposal Fee | Start Date | End Date

    These values are manually set and will vary depending on community feedback, as well as being able to access funds.

    As we learn from each cycle and fine tune the process, I'm sure it will settle into some routine regarding frequency and financials. For the mean time please do keep the feedback coming, it's greatly appreciated.

    Cracking Cold Ones,
    TechSquad

    Dear Cracking Cold Ones,

    Great stuff! I hope this keeps building and in my mind I think it would be great to have several voting cycles per month.

    @Name3 @demois8 We are answering questions from Dash Force News and DashWatch in regards to the funding of DashBoost. Once they have both sides of the story and publish their reports, we will post a proposal to allow the network to provide funding and fund small proposals. We will continue to look for alternative routes for funding, but that will probably be the primary funding.

    I am oh so very glad to announce that DashBoost is back and better than ever, thanks to a very kind community donator. I am proud to announce, that DashBoost, is hosting a two week cycle, which will end on July 3rd and has already started!

    In this cycle: 40 Dash is available to be received by community projects. With a 10 Dash max per proposal, And a 1 Dash Fee.

    Now, I have already talked to multiple people who want to put proposals in. What I need, is voters. Dash holders! Go over to https://dashboost.org/ and let's do this! Don't wait, go register, go verify your voting wallet and let's get this going!

    I love the idea of DashBoost. I linked my wallet but when I click the vote button, there is no response from the page. It does not even cause any action.

    Also, posting comments takes me to a blank page and does not post the comment.

    Anyway, love this idea and offer these observations with a constructive tone.

    UPDATE: It looks like the issue was only with one proposal. The rest are working fine. Kudos to Pasta for the prompt response. Thanks!

    Hello guys,

    I'm trying to upload a proposal in Dash Boost but the system keeps saying "Whoops, looks like something went wrong." and I have problem registering my wallet too.

    Hope you can help me.

    Hey @Pasta
    This is my proposal.
    I have only 1,5 dash, so if I give 1 dash as proposal fee I will not be able to vote in dashboost!
    I am asking for 1 Dash in order to host mnowatch, and you want 1 dash as proposal fee!!
    How is that possible?
    Shouldnt the proposal fee be propotional to the amount I am asking?

    @demo
    In the case of proposals which are as small as yours you have a few options:
    1. Put up the proposal for a total of 2 dash (1 dash requested, 1 dash fee)
    2. Find the funds by some other means.

    We have no plans to reduce the fee, or make it directly proportional to the amount requested in order to maximize quality.

    Dashboost was supposed to facilitate microproposals. So the proposal fee should be proportional to the total amount of the micro budget.

    In the original dash budget system, the proposal fee is set to 5 dash and the budget is 6200 dash. So the fee is set to the 1/1240. If we use your rationale, and we set the proposal fee to the 1/40, the proposal fee in the original budget system of dash should be set to 155 dash!!!

    Having set the proposal fee to the 1/40 in dashboost, this by no means facilitates micro proposals. If you insist in your wrong road, you have better rename your site from "dashboost" to "dashcrash"....:p:rolleyes:

    Again, @demo, you seem to have quite flawed logic.

    1. DashBoost has been clear from the start that the fee will be around one dash or lower, depending on the cycle.
    2. This system was not designed for everyone to participate. It was designed to allow smaller budget proposals. DashBoost is not a charity. It is a competitive process for funding which allows more people to participate, due to the way it is setup. DashBoost already appears to suffer from a problem of voter apathy, meaning not enough people are voting to vet these smaller proposals. How do you predict this might change if the fee structure is readjusted to allow the tiniest of proposals? I'll tell you, virtually nobody will vote!
    3. Your comparison between the DashBoost fee and the treasury's fee is completely irrelevant as the treasury has been designed to handle a lot more proposals then DashBoost is.
    4. The fee must be sufficiently high to warrant the time spent vetting and voting, as well as an anti-spam and quality assurance feature.

    If you disagree, that is fine. This is the way it will stay for now, unless I come upon information which changes my opinion, or I see community consensus about the (non)issue. And I'll save you a bit of time. Based on your prior postings, you won't be able to provide any information which will hold much merit and change my mind.

    The biggest challenge I see with DashBoost is getting the word out about it and keeping it stocked with new Dash for every cycle.

    I discovered it had some Dash to award and informed the Latam community.

    I hope it continues having new Dash to award so that Dash Boost can play an important role in funding projects that are too small for the treasury, that are in that critical seed stage where they have a couple months or more of operation under their belts but aren't quite ready to ask for 20+ dash from the treasury.

    This is a bad decision , and also a decision that suffers from centralization (because you decided that, and no one else).
    Could you please point where you have said that the proposal fee in dashboost will be around one dash, and not lower?

    I love this platform for micro proposals. It is a great initiative that we congratulate. It took me time to register my wallet (I had to do it by trial and error), the instructions are not clear so I recommend improving that section on the website.
    Greetings and success!

    "1 Dash Proposal Submission fee" (https://www.dashcentral.org/p/gc-dash-boost). Since that is the statement which the MN network agreed to, we will follow by it unless community consensus is clearly shown.
