Monero General Fund Transparency Report
Welcome to the first Monero General Fund Transparency Report. The Core Team would like to put out consistent reports about the usage of the general fund.
Since the Core Team has changed since the general fund’s inception, and the memories can be a bit hazy for time periods long gone, we have decided that our first report will cover the periods of 2019-2020, with subsequent reports coming out every half-year.
We do apologize for the delay on getting this report out. There were a few finer details in 2019 that needed to be tracked down. That should be a one time thing, and it will be easier to put out more consistent reports going forward.
There were ten outgoing transactions in the entirety of 2019. Five were for the ARM Buildbots, and totaled 55.1295 XMR.
Four were for server costs, which include payments for the CDN, Seed nodes, Mac servers, and web hosting costs for the site, infrastructure, and downloads. This totaled 631.971924 XMR.

The only outgoing transactions from the general fund as of July 1st, 2020 were for payments of Diego “rehrar” Salazar, totaling $7000 USD per month at the exchange rate at time of payment. There have been no other outgoing transactions.
