Total hours worked: 537+4
Final update! The most significant things I worked on since last update were monero-lws subaddress support, the informal audit of monero-lws, and reviewing/providing feedback on JAMTIS (the next gen address scheme protocol).
- submitted proposal for adding subaddress support to the light wallet rest API5
- submitted a first draft of the informal audit of
- reviewed and provided feedback on JAMTIS, the new addressing scheme for Monero7
- other/misc work (view tag implementation8)
a) Improving the decoy selection algorithm

In summary, I very much so enjoyed working full-time on Monero these past few months, and I hope to submit a new CCS very soon. I have deep gratitude for being granted the opportunity to contribute to Monero in this capacity. I feel very lucky and want to keep going 110%.
