Once again, the IOTA grassroots movement made a difference in showing the world that this is no ephemeral cryptocurrency but a serious endeavor that leads to a technology, that possibly changes everything.
The generous sponsors of the ecosystem-fund are part of the “Ecosystem-club”, initiated by Luey Forje, one of the early investors and a well-known community member.
The known sponsors are: Marc Bettinger, Achim Heiniger, Denzel Schwimmer, Tristan Turner, Khaoudy Yassin and some more sponsors which decided to stay anonymous.
IOTA has a big healthy community of voluntarily working people and sponsors that are unified and goal-oriented in bringing the technology to life.
The ecosystem fund is meant as a development booster to attract creative thinkers, developers and the possibility of funding people’s ideas if they are beneficial for IOTA.
The IOTA foundation announced in the official blog post a selection of possible applications in the following fields:
- Proof of concepts
- The creation of Libraries/Modules
- Research and development of new IXI Modules
- Tutorials for Learn.iota.org
But there is more to it!
You could work on a coordinated marketing campaign, you could ask for specific projects that are not covered by the former list.
I’m pretty sure that the founders are open-minded and like to hear lots of ideas because that is the very purpose of this fund!
Therefore, I want to encourage everyone with a good idea to apply for a funding!
