Six Month Phore Core Team Budget Proposal (30,000 PHR)
Since the core team budget proposal has been consistent each month, and we would like to provide stability to the core team funding as we move through the rest of 2018, we are putting forth this proposal for a six month period. The governance system fully supports this type of recurring payment, which will also be easier for masternode owners as you will only have to approve it once for this period. We will revisit the structure of the budget allocations in six months and make adjustments as necessary.
We plan to continue having single month proposals for the remaining portion of the Phore development budget, to provide flexibility and gain community input on specific decisions and how to allocate the remaining funds.
We plan to allocate the six month recurring core team proposal as follows:
The Phore core team is submitting another proposal for exchange listing costs, and a pair of alternative proposals for a decision on how to approach securely supporting light node SPV (simple payment verification) wallets in the future. The percentages below apply to the amount of this proposal (30,000 PHR).
Development : 50%
The Development team is the heart of Phore. It is essential that our Developers continue towards meeting the roadmap goals, as agreed upon by the community. Developing and maintaining the blockchain is no easy task.
It is proposed that 50% of this budget goes towards the Development of Phore Blockchain. These funds will be used to compensate our current Development team, as well as rewarding community developer contributions and recruiting additional talent to help us achieve and expand our goals.
The development costs of Phore Synapse is included within these funds.
Marketing : 30%
Exposure is key to success within the Cryptosphere. Not only does it create ‘brand recognition’, but it allows for the continual growth of the community which, in turn, leads to more exposure as Phore Blockchain is discussed more on socials…etc.
It is proposed that 30% of this budget goes towards increasing our exposure; ‘Marketing’ Phore Blockchain. These funds will be used to compensate our current Marketing team, as well as allowing us to do things such as create campaigns and giveaways. This will help us to become a bigger player in the space.
These funds will also be used for things such as; press releases, banner/other ads and taking measures to ensure community growth.
Team Members (Other) : 20%
As many of you will know, Phore Blockchain consists of over 30 team members spanning many departments alongside those you see listed above. This includes but is not limited to our; Compliance team, Legal team, Research and Development team, Video Content Producers, Community Assistance team…etc, many of whom contribute a lot of time and effort, and therefore must be compensated.
It is proposed that 20% of this budget goes towards compensating these team members in order to motivate and show gratitude towards their efforts, both in helping make Phore Blockchain in what it is today, and helping shape tomorrow.
