Dear Tezos community,
In late 2018, we announced that we committed funding to train 1,000 new developers to build on Tezos. Today, we are proud to share that we have reached that goal. Specifically, a recent analysis found that 1,338 developers have completed, or are in the midst of completing, a Tezos training course. We are incredibly excited to welcome these developers into the fold and look forward to seeing what they build on Tezos in 2020 and beyond.
In addition to reaching our goal of training 1,000 Tezos developers, Ledger announced this week that they integrated Tezos to allow users to send, receive, and delegate tez (Tezos tokens) directly from Ledger Live. This was a joint effort with TQ Tezos and Obsidian Systems, and I commend them on a job well done. I cannot wait to see the Tezos community take advantage of this new tool.
As stated in last week’s update, we’re in the final stages of our evaluation process for all of the proposals submitted to our latest ecosystem grants RFP. This week, the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) completed reviews of all proposals, which will be voted on by the Council over the next 1-2 weeks. We will contact all applicants once final decisions have been made by the Council. Those with questions regarding our grantmaking activities may contact [email protected].
FAQs: I contributed to the Tezos Foundation’s fundraiser but I cannot figure out how to activate my recommended allocation – what do I do?
It was another big week for the Tezos ecosystem. Last week, we announced that BTG Pactual & Dalma Capital will tokenize a deal pipeline of $1bn USD of assets on the Tezos blockchain. Additional STO deals in various categories are in our pipeline and the Foundation is working hard to advance these. In addition, the Foundation is evaluating a number of strategic investments in companies and projects; watch out for further information soon.
