If you’ve spent time in the web3 ecosystem, you’ve probably come across work that was supported by an IPFS ecosystem development grant. The ENS integration work funded in 2019 established a de facto standard for decentralized website hosting. A 2018 grant to Peergos to build a new scalable capabilities system helped define an exemplar for distributed access controls for mutable data. And a shared grant with NearForm helped implement Node.js support for the new QUIC protocol. These grants help support and acellerate the ecosystem of developers building on IPFS, and contribute to our mission to create a resilient, upgradeable, open network to preserve and grow humanity’s knowledge.
