Overview:
Electrum is probably the most popular open-source SPV wallet for bitcoin. Early 2017 I've picked up maintenance and support for DASH Electrum. Since then, I've assembled a small team of three developers. This is a proposal to fund the continuing development and support for Dash Electrum.
Scope and deliverables:
Since last proposal, we've
  • followed the upstream changes in preparation for their release
  • released v 3.3.8 including full InstantSend support
  • working on PrivateSend support
Execution and Schedule:
Work already performed or in progress. Deliverables are released publicly as soon as they are ready.
Roadmap:
We are positioning Dash Electrum as the default front-end for dash ecosystem, with focus on privacy by default.
Our current roadmap is the following:
  • keep up with the upstream development
  • submission of Android version to Google Play
  • complete privatesend support
  • applets/plugins:
    • masternode monitoring
    • budget proposals monitoring (incl. discussions)
    • pay for fiat services
    • point of sales
    • shared masternodes
    • new: synthetic assets plugin
Since our additional proposal passed, we're again working full time.

About me:
I'm active software developer for over 25 years and for last 15 years I develop mainly in Python. I'm in DASH since late 2014 (you can track my posts on the forum). I package dash electrum for more two years now.
Amount requested:
This time we will request 2-month funding that would cover our burn rate at current exchange rate which is $68.93USD/Dash at the moment of this post.
Budget calculation:
  • deficit accumulated: -18.09Dash
  • total burn rate: 145.07Dash per month * 2 months = 290.15Dash
  • financed burn rate: 93Dash per month * 2 months = 186Dash
  • burn rate: 104.15Dash per month * 2 months = 208.3Dash
  • proposal submission fee: 5DASH
Total: 231.39Dash over 3 month or 74Dash per month (rounded up to the nearest Dash).

To provide transparency, funds would be directed to a separate wallet, as with previous proposals.

In case of DASH appreciation, any leftover funds would be spent to extend the duration of the project. In case of DASH depreciation, we will go into a deficit mode again and will submit a new proposal after the end of this 2 month period.
