We believe that the most impactful way of investing in the crypto ecosystem and ensuring innovation continues is by backing open-source developers; the individuals and projects dedicated to creating and improving the core infrastructure that the rest of us build on.
All grants are provided without expectations and are intended to support the individuals and projects dedicated to creating and improving the core infrastructure that the rest of us build on. This is why we started our Open-Source Developer Grant program, so developers can work independently towards the advancement of crypto.
