Happy New Year Dash community! The core team has completed its requests for the December budget cycle. The core team proposals constitute 80.8% 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 additional community proposals to pass if they garner sufficient votes, so be sure to check them all. The next superblock is scheduled for block 598176, which should occur at approximately 5am (UTC) on Wednesday, January 4th.

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 Tuesday to see your votes counted.

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, excluding any requested funds specifically for proposal reimbursement costs. Core team budget assumes a USD exchange rate of $11.349 as of December 31st. 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.
