More mooo Monero coding - july-september

It's me again, planning for three more months, in which I'm planning to work on two main large changes:

  • blockchain pruning
  • payment for third party RPC services

Both of these are major upgrades which I've started already.

My current progress reports can be found in https://forum.getmonero.org/6/ideas/89998/moar-mooo-coding-april-june

With Monero currently at $157, three months at $30 + 0.1 monero yields 151 monero.

Thanks

moneromoo obviously knows Monero intimately. Watching the way moneromooo interacts with all the people he works with, guiding those that are new and trying to help this project as well as helping those that ask for help is testament to how important he is to Monero.

Looking forward to donating some mooonero :)
