Third Round of Approvals

Hi Everyone!

Thrilled to share details on the third round of funding approved by the Committee! This week we have 7 grants with a total of $234,000.00 in pledged DYDX funding. Check out the table below for details on each project.

This week’s round takes us to over $1M in pledged funding to grants! A little over 1/3 of the way through our first quarter, that puts the program on track to hit its goal of distributing roughly $3m per quarter.

To keep applications going, we have also released a new set of RFPs. And as always, we encourage any interested contributors to apply with projects outside of existed RFPs.

Have a great week! 🦔
