Tezos Foundation to Launch Grantmaking Process
The Tezos Foundation is launching their first grantmaking process in August of this year, with plans to attract participants from various fields to apply for grants.
According to the announcement, Tezos’ public call for grants will be made in August of this year, and has determined three main areas as an initial target. These include “research that furthers the Tezos protocol and related technologies,” “development of tools and applications to support the Tezos ecosystem,” and “efforts to strengthen and nurture the burgeoning Tezos community.”
Within the initiative, the Foundation is reportedly going to invite community members, institutions, developers, and other parties which would be interested in applying for grants. All proposed projects should relate to one of the three grantmaking categories and will be reviewed on a monthly basis and evaluated by the Tezos Foundation Board.
On June 30, Tezos launched its beta network, calling the move an “inflection point” for the project. From that point on, users can begin validating blocks or “baking” after the first seven cycles which they estimate to be in about three weeks from the launch. According to Tezos’ website, the betanet is being launched in anticipation of a broader main network launch in the future.
Last month, the Foundation also announced the implementation of Know Your Customer/Anti-Money Laundering (KYC/AML) checks for contributors, in particular for those who ask for participation in initial coin offerings. The move was met with a negative reaction from the community.
