Ethereum Classic Labs Announces
Call for Proposals in DeFi, Digital Sovereignty, or Financial Inclusion
We’re looking to collaborate with innovative blockchain projects that address universal technical challenges, increase adoption, and develop public goods.
The Call for Proposals builds upon our recent announcement of the DAI-ETC bridge to advance financial inclusion. It also advances the mission of ETC Labs to build relevant, accessible, and high-quality technology; and to fulfill the promise of blockchain to improve people’s lives using Ethereum Classic and other public blockchains.
Projects must be open-source, early-stage or pre-launch, and committed to building on a public blockchain.
In this round of grants, we are particularly interested in:
- DeFi: platforms and solutions that increase access, security, liquidity, interoperability, including insurance, derivatives, and bridges.
- Digital Sovereignty: tools and solutions that enable user-controlled data and assets on the internet.
- Financial Inclusion: platforms, tools, and products that increase financial inclusion and adoption beyond existing communities with an emphasis on emerging and informal markets.
All funding will be granted on a rolling basis. To apply, click here. Make sure to fill out each field on the form with the most up to date and accurate information including a brief project summary, technical description, team bios, implementation and growth plan, risk analysis, and a link to your GitHub, code, or whitepaper.
