Keeping you up-to-date on all the development in the Fantom ecosystem.

Fantom launches 335m FTM Gitcoin Grants program

The original Fantom Incentive Program has received more than 100 applications and distributed over 35 million $FTM to some of the top TVL projects on Fantom, helping them grow the Fantom ecosystem and build unstoppable applications on the most accessible and user-friendly blockchain. We want to do more.

In partnership with Gitcoin Grants, we open the reward program to all Fantom projects, regardless of their development stage and TVL. The community decides what to fund and Fantom will match contributions using Gitcoin’s Quadratic Funding mechanism. The previous incentive programs for DeFi and Games will be replaced by the grants program.

👉 For more details about how the Fantom Gitcoin grants work, read our blog post.
