Let's talk about it!
Should we ask Angela and Jordan hand over the dev fund to reputed signers?
Reputed signers then negotiate with @sigmike about how to pay the software development.
Here is the example:
Signers: hi sigmike, we want to implement cold minting on B&C, what's the cost?
Sigmike: I need 20,000$ to finish that work in one month.
Signers: We"ll discuss it and during the process, other developers may provide reference and community also can talk about it.
One week later
Signers: How about 15,000$? You can finish it within 2 months.
Sigmike: Ok. You should know that although my man hour rate is high, I spend less time to finish this work, so the total cost is relative low.
Signers: Yes. It's meanless to focus on hour rate because different developers have various time to finish it. And We'll pay you half in advance and another half after you releasing new version and it runs smoothly. You are the general contractor, you may hire other developers or code by youself, we don't interfere you because we only care about the result: good quality product.
