Gitcoin on Fantom

Through our partnership with Gitcoin, Fantom will be the first chain to beta test grants protocol! Teams building on Fantom can present their work to the community and gather financial support. The Fantom Foundation will match public contributions made to projects. The matching will be done via quadratic funding. Our introductory round will allocate 125,000 FTM in matching incentives.

Projects applying for grants are vetted after submission. In this way, the community is assured that any donations are going to legitimate builders. All screening done is for verification only, judgements about which projects deserve funding are up to the public.

Applications open November 14!
