Block.one to Bring Open Source EOS Crowd Funding Platform to Asia
The investment aims to help expand their network and encourage development.
LONDON (Bywire News) - Block.one has awarded a grant of $631,000 to EOS Nation and EOS Asia for an EOS public blockchain which will fund and support software development for EOSIO based projects.
The new platform is designed to be community driven and self-funded and will give an opportunity for creators and developers of open-source software. Block.one will provide initial funding for selected developments once the platform launches later this year. They say they expect the EOS community to be at the forefront of embracing the opportunities the platform brings.
“As a long-standing member of the EOSIO community, we have seen first-hand the power that comes from community contributions and innovation,” said Kevin Rose, SVP, Public Blockchain Engagement at Block.one. “Block.one is excited to tap into that collective dynamism by supporting the launch of a crowdsourced funding platform, which could also serve as a reservoir for sharing project ideas and developer best practices.”
Block.one see projects such as this as an opportunity to scale and build out products with the support of the most experienced members of its community. EOS Asia and EOS Nation, have long been at the forefront of development, and Block.one see them as the perfect partners to move forward.
“Among the many talented block producer candidates, we’re honored and excited that Block.one has decided to support our proposal to deliver the platform along with EOS Asia,” said Yves La Rose from EOS Nation. “There’s much work that will need to be done to bring this vision to reality, and we are thrilled to have the support of Block.one. The EOS community can engage with us and stay updated on the progress of the platform through our website and social channels.”
