The Chainlink Community Grant Program provides financial resources to the many development teams and researchers building a more functional and accessible Chainlink Network. We encourage talented individual developers and development teams to apply to the grant program here, or if you are a researcher and want to collaborate, contact us.
As we get ready to leave 2020 behind, the growth of the Chainlink ecosystem in the past year has been incredible, with nearly 5B+ in smart contract value secured by the Chainlink Network, along with an expansive set of new users across Blockchains, DeFi, Gaming, Insurance, and more. With the pace of new features, integrations, grants, and use cases set to continue growing throughout 2021, there will be more news and community-generated content than ever before.
To ensure the Chainlink community and wider smart contract economy is able to keep pace with the ecosystem’s growth, we’re excited to announce that TheLinkMarine is receiving a grant to develop and maintain a new Chainlink News website—a full spectrum resource for consuming all Chainlink-related news. As someone who has demonstrated incredible initiative by independently building out the popular community resource https://chainlinkecosystem.com with tremendous attention to detail, TheLinkMarine represents an ideal candidate to receive a Chainlink Community grant.
As part of the grant, TheLinkMarine will work closely with the team and community to create this news resource for all things Chainlink. This Chainlink News website will include the following:
- Create an easily digestible website for getting all the recently released news by the team, ecosystem, and community, including announcements, blog posts, videos, podcasts, and more, along with an accompanying Twitter page to track the latest updates.
- Translate key content resources into a variety of languages to support the rapidly expanding global community forming around Chainlink.
- Help support community-written blog posts so they are easily found and seen by the wider Chainlink ecosystem.
As an independent website for Chainlink-related news, the grant funding will support the creation of this professionally managed community resource for aggregating and generating any/all Chainlink happenings. By building out this new community resource and keeping it up to date, Chainlink’s global community will always be informed of the latest news, have a common medium to share their personal blog content so it’s seen by the wider community, and be able to easily find resources and support needed to help others learn more about the Chainlink Network and its ecosystem.
“I’m honored to be awarded a grant to build the Chainlink News website as a go-to community resource for all Chainlink-related news,” stated TheLinkMarine. “As someone who has been actively involved with the Chainlink community since the very beginning and watched its growth alongside the Chainlink Network’s expansion, I look forward to using this grant to build a more robust resource that aggregates all the latest news and happenings and serves as a common outlet for community members to share their original blog content. We truly are all in this together!”
Through the Chainlink Community Grants program, we look forward to continuing to empower more and more Chainlink ecosystem teams and researchers who are both researching and building key tools and infrastructure that accelerate the development of hybrid smart contracts and secure oracle networks. We will continue supporting the community as a key driver of Chainlink’s rapid growth, because only together can we make hybrid smart contracts into the dominant form of digital agreement.
