FAQs: Why doesn’t the Foundation release individual amounts for grants?
We strive to be as transparent in our actions as possible but if we released individual amounts and terms of every grant, we would lose leverage in attracting future grant proposals. If the terms of our grants are always made public, we will not be able to efficiently and effectively disperse funds. More importantly, given the sensitive nature of money, we respect our grantees’ right to keep their finances private. We included grant allocations for each category in our bi-annual report released in August.
This week, we caught up with Agile Ventures founder Andrew Paulicek to discuss Agile’s work on Tezos Domains, what makes blockchain name services valuable, and the other projects he and his team are working on. We hope you enjoy the Q&A below.
We highlighted the global footprint of Tezos this week, holding a Q&A with Tezos West Africa’s Nelly Chatue to discuss what she is working on, how she got involved with Tezos, and the perception of Tezos and blockchain in West Africa.
