The core team has completed its requests for the December budget cycle. The core team proposals constitute 89% of the maximum budget this month, though a significant portion is simply facilitating an "escrow service" of sorts for the Wall of Coins proposal.

Below is an overview of December’s funding requests for the core team and the community sponsored proposals that are currently passing. There is still enough room in the budget for all community proposals to pass as well. The next superblock is scheduled for block 581560, which should occur at approximately midnight (UTC) on Monday, December 5th.

If you have not already reviewed and voted on the proposals submitted throughout the month, there is still plenty of time to vote. Be sure to vote before the weekend to see your votes counted.

Complete Budget (as of current voting rank):



Note: USD conversion in the table assumes conversion rates noted in the new budget proposals (at the time they were submitted to the network), or the average exchange rate on the date the proposals were submitted. Core team budget assumes a USD exchange rate of $9.023 as of November 28th. Existing fixed-duration budgets use the original exchange rate at the time of creation. Exchange rate risk is carried only by the proposer of these budgets and not by the network unless otherwise specified.

"Dash-Lamassu ATM Integration - 610.26 DASH (payment #12 of 12)"

Is there any information on the Lamassu ATM project? Forgive me if so, but I looked and came up empty. I read the comments in the voting and understand there are no deliverables, just curious if anyone has any details on it.​

Ahh crikey, that didn't end well. So the project's lead pulled a Houdini, or TBD, or?
The ATM thing has been a self-defeating pork/scam from the get go. It was never meant to succeed. Just to funnel a ton of cash from the SuckerNodes.
