The core team has completed its requests for the November budget cycle. The core team proposals constitute just under 75% of the maximum budget.

Below is an overview of November’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 a couple of additional proposals, so you might consider evaluating some of the proposals that are not currently passing. The next superblock is scheduled for block 564944, which should occur at approximately 17:00 (UTC) on Friday, November 4th.

If you have not already reviewed and voted on the proposals submitted throughout the month, there is still plenty of time to vote. Remember that votes must be submitted by the time the budgets finalize 24-48 hours before the payment cycle, so make sure to vote no later than Wednesday afternoon UTC to see your votes counted.
