Good Whale's Grant Fund

One whale approached me recently expressing desire to support research & development in the Ergo ecosystem. I expressed some topics of interest, and the whale was keen to support them.

Please note that DarkFund0 still has more than 4K ERG for privacy-preserving applications, and Ergo Foundation always waiting for grant proposals of any kind.
This is just another fund to help with Ergo ecosystem bootstrapping.

Good whale’s fund is mostly interested in following topics:

  • developing a standard for NiPoPoW-based certificates for NFTs (and not only)

  • developing contracts and UI for Ergo Name System (alternative for Namecoin, Handshake, Ethereum Name Service)

  • developing applications on top of ErgoDEX, such as DexyUSD Dexy USD - Simplest Stablecoin Design , tokensales with buyback guarantees New Ergo Smart DEX Orders with buyback guarantees | Ergo etc

  • developing standard DeFi stack: lending applications, financial instruments (futures, options), etc

  • Mixicles https://research.chain.link/mixicles.pdf and other private DeFi applications

  • Mutual credit systems, targeted microloans, savings cooperatives and other community-powering DeFi

but you are free to propose your topic!

Up to $20K per grant!

Please note that a grant is not a contract job, so you will control products created and income flows associated!

Please send your proposals to team@ergoplatform.org

Hello,

I am with https://sanctuarydex.com/

We are an approved wallet/POS terminal on the apple and android app store. We would like to add SIGUSD to the wallet but are running low on dev funds bc of lack of adoption.

The number one resistance we get from business owners is the volatility of crypto. There is a high demand for a stable coin. 8 out of 10 would agree to utilize a stable coin token.

I am in charge of marketing and adoption for the POS terminal and use sig usd. I think its revolutionary to have a decentralized dollar. The advantage we have over other wallets it’s we are already on the IOS store.

I joined the sanctuary dex because I see the vision of a decentralized noncdp backed dollar.

See a POS terminal and “quickbooks” accounting system is what all of us business owners need for mass adoption. SanctuaryDex has this and combined with SIGUSD, It will be unstoppable. I will make it my lifes goal to adopt sigusd to as many businesses as possible.

We made it this far, we just need some extra funds to point dev resources to adding SIGUSD. Then the fee, with my marketing of sigusd will make sustainable dev ops possible.

See my marketing and SIGUSD vision here:

Speeding up community-driven ecosystem development

Keep up the good work team
Cheers!
