Masternode Tools Proposals Review

Masternode owners vote for Dash treasury funding proposals.  Those that pass get funded.  So it makes sense that tools which help manage masternodes would be popular. Dash Masternode Tool In the last cycle one of the proposals with the highest net votes was: DashMasternodeTool – development boost Owner: Bertrand256  Monthly amount: 66 DASH ($296/D – $19,500) for 2 months (added on 2017-09-16) Votes: 1046 Yes / 3 No / 1 Abstain  (approx $39K at time of entry) Which funded development on a GUI tool that helps masternode owners secure their collateral and perform other similar functions.
