So I posted this question during the last AMA but was apparently not the right place to do so.
I copy/paste it here because it seems @anon47418038 last topic would also fit here:
A large part of the users need his tool and he needs funds to continue.
Beside the bi annual grant program, would it be possible for the foundation to hire external resources for a specific chosen idea beside waiting for the right candidate and idea?
I like some of the grant ideas proposals such as Paynent integration in wechat or whatsapp (if I remember well). Why not having these ideas being voted and ask for a quote from external company to do the work? What about freelance platform such as upwork for example ?
