Crypto Grants 2021

in LeoFinance2 months ago

Grant in the cryptocurrency industry is an important point of growth. Both the growth of the whole crypto-space and the personal growth of individuals and new teams. For many months I explored these opportunities. I'm planning to apply to some of these grants with the newly created blockchain ventures team which I joined recently, and I'm happy to share this information with all of you, my crypto-blog readers.

So these 26 grants are more than enough to start. You might choose one or even several opportunities, apply, and have a chance to grow crypto-industry together.

Great listing, thank you!
For environmental project, you can also have a grant from the SEEDS community

Hello Chris,
Thanks for your comment.
Yes, I'm aware of SEEDs and had an account there and checked the app a year ago. I support it as it has Telos-based token.
Yes, they state they have millions for grants, but any usecases which you know?
As I just checked and SEEDs have $9.60 of 24 hours trading volume on Newdex
I liked the app, but it seemed nothing changed in a year so it will probably take several more years before grants become available

Oh Yes, many changes on SEEDS. A very active community on Discord, The Seeds price increase 3.3 % every week. People buy directly from fiat to Seeds. Not much activity on DEX because people are coming from the non crypto world, but there are several new members each days ( I am a SEEDS ambassador)
