The Polkadot Technical Fellowship Referendum 74, up for vote by III-Dan members, is currently passing unanimously RFC #10. If it passes, coretime sales will be initiated with the burning mechanism. Further changes to the destination of coretime sale revenues can be subject to an OpenGov referendum in the future if the token holders deem it necessary.
