The Foundation is in the process of setting up the 2018Q2 grant program! You can see the draft proposal here:
We also received a proposal from the Blockchain Institute to match the current $125,000 we have earmarked for the program—making the total pool of funds for the program $250,000. I wanted to post to check if anyone had any questions or concerns about accepting additional funding—one of the members of the Blockchain Institute would sit on review board, but otherwise the grant program would function similarly to 2017Q4.
I’m personally excited about the prospect of getting more visibility into the grant program via the Blockchain Institute and getting more submissions from places where they have more reach than the Foundation. What does everyone here think? cc @tromer
