The funding round for the Ecosystem Vault has concluded, and winners have been identified! In the coming days, the Foundation will have distributed 750,000 FTM to the nine outstanding participating projects.
We appreciate the dedication and enthusiasm of all projects and community members involved!
Inside the Ecosystem Vault funding process
The Ecosystem Vault collects 10% of the transaction fees on Fantom. To distribute these funds, we hosted a funding round on Gitcoin in which users voted on participating projects to determine the amount of funding each project would receive from the Vault.
As a first-of-its-kind initiative, the Vault funding round empowered the Fantom community in the funding allocation process and did not require users to contribute actual tokens, unlike other Gitcoin rounds. From August 20 to September 20, users cast their votes on their favorite projects, and we are excited to share the results of the funding round below.
