This proposal will cover my development cost for the months of August and September. I will work full time on the core wallet where I will focus mainly on finishing shield staking and fixing some vulnerabilities in sapling

A possible roadmap:
On shield staking there are mainly 3 tasks left that I will try to complete in the next 2 cycles:
- Optimize the proof size (which first requires updating the librustzcash lib)
- Write unit and functional tests
- Lot of testing and reviews
There are many small bugs in the shielding system that have been discovered and documented by zcash devs years ago and that we will finally be able to implement since we are updating the librustzcash lib.
