    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

    Execution and Schedule:
    Work already performed or in progress. Deliverables are released publicly as soon as they are ready.


    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 instantsend support
    • privatesend support
    • applets/plugins:
      • masternode monitoring
      • budget proposals monitoring (incl. discussions)
      • pay for fiat services
      • point of sales
      • shared masternodes
    Note that we're working half time on the project, so things take longer than we expect.

    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 3-month funding that would cover our burn rate at current exchange rate which is $156.33USD/Dash at the moment of this post.

    Budget calculation:
    • expected leftover at the Aug 1st: 2DASH
    • burn rate: 32DASH for 3 month = 96DASH
    • proposal submission fee: 5DASH
    Total: 99DASH over 3 month or 33DASH per month.

    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 3month period.
