• Cartesi launches a Community Grants Program to fund developers and expand the Cartesi ecosystem.
• The program provides developers with financial support and community feedback, while the Cartesi Foundation will periodically publish Requests for Proposals (RFPs).
• The launch of this program also ushers in new governance functions for Cartesi’s token, CTSI, allowing the community to influence what is being funded and built on Cartesi tech.
Cartesi Launches Community Grants Program
Cartesi (an application-specific rollup execution layer with a Linux runtime) has launched its Community Grants Program for developers looking for support to get their ideas off the ground, and for Web3 enthusiasts interested in helping shape Cartesi’s developing ecosystem. A community-driven program to fund a broad network of contributors, its goal is to help build and expand the Cartesi ecosystem.
Program Provides Developers With Financial Support & Feedback
For developers who have an incredible idea but need some extra help to get it off the ground, Cartesi’s Community Grants Program is not only about financial support; by harnessing the power of the Cartesi community, developers are also provided with invaluable technical and strategic advice to ensure the success of projects growing within the Cartesi ecosystem. With this program, developers can refine their proposals for funding their project with community feedback, strengthening its feasibility and potency.
The Foundation Will Publish RFPs
In addition to developers submitting their own ideas, the Cartesi Foundation will periodically publish Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for projects that they believe are of particular relevance and impact to the ecosystem.
New Governance Function For CTSI Token
The launch of this grants program also ushers in new governance functions for Cartesie’s token: CTSI. The decentralized ecosystem will use CTSI as a way for community members to signal approval or disapproval of grants that are proposed. This allows the community more easily connect with builders in the ecosystem as well as influence what is being funded or built on their technology platform.
Rolling up is an application-specific execution layer that elevates simple smart contracts into decentralized Linux runtimes allowing developers launch highly scalable chains and code logic using popular languages/software components .
