Our goal with Grant.io was to bring accessibility, accountability, and community to the open source funding ecosystem. We came from the open source Ethereum community having experienced a lot of misaligned incentives and ”tokenomics” that left a bad taste in our mouth, and felt that grant funding was a more noble way of getting money and building cool stuff.

What started as a smart contract driven platform turned into a white label service. We worked with organizations like the Zcash Foundation and Tlon (urbit) to build a product that allowed them to organize projects that needed funding, and match funders and builders together.

While our work still stands today, the idea of being a consultancy rather than a product company didn’t match with our original vision, and we disbanded in 2020.
