Do you have something equivalent to ERC721 as a sample to build upon?
Yes. Just last month, the team at TQ Tezos announced the release of FA2 (TZIP-12), a proposal for a unified token contract interface, supporting both a wide range of token types (e.g. fungible, non-fungible, non-transferrable, etc.) as well as multi-asset contracts. TQ initiated a request for community comment on the proposal on Agora, and multiple teams are working to move the interface from proposal to implementation.
This aspect is kinda tricky but, we have seen that not only you are funding via grants, you also participate early seed in round table, which seems interesting as an approach. Are you planning to keep doing it? Are you only targeting the STO start-ups?
The Tezos Foundation’s mission is to foster the growth and evolution of the Tezos project and ecosystem. The Tezos Foundation does this through grants and other capital deployment vehicles, and will continue to sustainably deploy resources that support the long-term success of Tezos.
To clarify, however, we are not only targeting STO projects. While digital securities emerged as an initial strategic area of focus for the Foundation, they by no means define our belief of what Tezos is. Many other use-cases can and will be built on Tezos, and we are focused on DeFi, CBDC, payments, and gaming use-cases, and have already supported a number of projects building many of the tools necessary to attract more builders and entrepreneurs across these verticals.
How are you planning to develop community engagement (in all its form, speaking, developing, organising, etc.)?
The Tezos Foundation funds a number of entities that promote community engagement like Tezos Commons Foundation (TCF), Tocqueville Group (TQ), Tezos Southeast Asia (TSA), Tezos Japan, Tezos Korea Foundation, and others. The Tezos Foundation’s primary role is to sustainably deploy resources to promote the growth and evolution of the Tezos project. That role encompasses fostering community engagement, and we will continue to fund entities that build community engagement in a variety of ways.
What are the next steps, now we do have 1000+ Devs and now what? Are we planning to push further in this direction? Do we have a plan?
The Tezos Foundation funds a number of entities that provide Tezos developer training courses. After successfully training 1,338 new developers in 2019, we are committed to building on that momentum in 2020. We plan on covering education and training in an upcoming feature of this weekly update so be on the look out for more information.
Any possibility for multi-ownership bakeries?
The Tezos Foundation does not determine how bakeries are set up – that is up to the community. We suggest that you start a discussion about the idea with the wider Tezos community on Tezos Agora.
Are there any NFT projects running on Tezos yet?
There are NFT projects on Tezos that are in development. Some of them may or may not be live on the Tezos mainnet. For more information on NFTs and assets on Tezos, check out TQ Tezos’ blog post on FA2, a multi-asset interface for Tezos.
