Every three months, the broader Stellar community is given the opportunity to vote for their favorite project proposals. The winners split a pool of 3,000,000 lumens based on the percentage of the final vote they received. If you’re new to the Stellar Community Fund, you can view the full guidelines here. The votes have been cast and tallied, and the results of the third round are in!

It’s been exciting to see community participation increase with each round. Round 3 saw a total of 730 eligible voters across the nomination and final rounds.

The future of the Stellar Community Fund

I’ve said this a million times, but I’ve really appreciated the constant feedback and ideas that the community has provided throughout the first year of this program. We’re pleased to share that we’ll be continuing the program into 2020.

With the first year of SCF completed, we’ll be digging into the feedback provided over the last 9 months and working to refine the structure. This means there will be a temporary hiatus before the call for proposal submissions for Round 4.

So, stay tuned — we’ll be very vocal about when SCF resumes.

Congratulations again to this round’s finalists. We’re looking forward to seeing what amazing proposals and community-driven projects come out of 2020.
