Announcing $50k for the 2nd Stacks Decentralized Grants Cohort
We are excited to announce applications for DeGrants are now open!

The Stacks Decentralized Grants (DeGrants) program aims to drive development in specific areas within the Stacks ecosystem that the community deems important, allocating funding from a pool of $50k.

The program follows the successful DeGrants pilot. Some of the highlights of the pilot program include the creation of a GoLang SDK, the involvement of over 20 stewards and contributors, and the support of more than 45 applications, including two key projects working towards the sBTC launch.

The second cohort of DeGrants builders will continue to drive momentum in the ecosystem with its special mix of open innovation and community engagement.

DeGrants is built for Stacks community members looking to contribute to the Stacks ecosystem. The program puts the solicitation, review, and selection of grants in the hands of the community.
