How it helps
Funding from members allows us to deliver in key areas for the open-source Stacks network. We typically focus on public infrastructure and other places where there are network-wide needs. We've started, funded, and/or supported many of programs and efforts that you know and love within the Stacks Ecosystem.

Below you will find a few examples of the work we do:
We provide core public network contributions and ensure there are fair processes the community can use to self-govern.

  • Our team leads major areas of Research and Development on the public Stacks Blockchain and employs blockchain developers that work solely on public infrastructure.
  • We support community-wide governance processes, including Stacks Improvement Proposals, CABs, & Working Groups.
  • We facilitate improving public network security and fund the Stacks Immunefi bug bounty program.
  • We play a critical role in communicating technology upgrades, including implementation and integration support for exchanges, API providers, and more.
