Privacy blockchain project Findora is launching a $100 million ecosystem fund “to accelerate the growth and development” of its community, the company announced on Wednesday.

  • Findora also announced that after more than three months of testing, staking and delegation would be possible on the Findora Mainnet Beta.
  • Findora described the fund as “part of a broader community-led commitment to support Findora ecosystem research, development and infrastructure projects building upon Findora’s privacy-preserving technology.”
  • Developers will be able to apply for grants through the initiative.
  • By staking on the Findora Mainnet Beta, stakers will be able to earn an annualized reward rate of up to 250%, the company said.
  • Last December, Findora closed an eight-figure funding round that included a number of notable investors, including Allchaineed, Krypital Group, Axia8 Ventures, Cabin VC, Powerscale Capital and Jack Lee, the founding partner of Foxconn’s financial platform, FNConn.
  • The amount of funding was not disclosed but the company told CoinDesk it was in “the tens of millions.”
