Ethers Receives Chainlink Community Grant to Expand Framework to Additional EVM-Based Blockchains
The Chainlink Community Grant Program provides financial resources to the many development teams and researchers building a more functional, accessible, and socially impactful Chainlink Network. In order to fuel the growth of the Chainlink community and accelerate the adoption of hybrid smart contracts, the Chainlink grant program continues to support work that makes it easier, faster, and more efficient to build, test, and interact with new smart contract applications.
Increasing support for additional EVM-based blockchain networks will enable Ethers to further simplify the development and deployment of Web 3.0 applications. As part of this grant, an ancillary package specifically for the OKExChain will be created, with additional support for more EVM-based blockchains that Chainlink oracles will support in the future. Additionally, Ethers will create detailed developer documentation for ancillary packages and provide ongoing maintenance to ensure that the packages work as expected.
Part of the work will also include the creation of clear guidance that empowers external blockchains to start creating their own ancillary packages—making way for Ethers to support their modified EVM chain in a frictionless manner. Illustrating how EVM modifications can be supported through ancillary packages, means the Ethers library can continue to expand in scope in the number of Web 3.0 developers who can build hybrid smart contract applications across multiple blockchain networks.
“I’d like to extend a huge thanks to Chainlink for their consideration and for their contribution to Ethers. The Chainlink community grant will specifically go towards extending the new and exciting world of ancillary packages to include and maintain a more diverse collection of blockchains, as well as the documentation to facilitate others and further extend Ethers functionality.” — Richard Moore, Ethers maintainer
Through the Chainlink Community Grants program, we look forward to continuing to empower more and more Chainlink ecosystem teams, developers, researchers, and social impact projects that are both researching and building key tools and infrastructure that accelerate the development of hybrid smart contracts, secure oracle networks, and impactful technology that improves the world. We will continue supporting the community as a key driver of Chainlink’s rapid growth, because only together can we make universally connected, hybrid smart contracts into the dominant form of digital agreement.
