The Human Rights Foundation’s Bitcoin Development Fund has made a major announcement, revealing grants to be given out across the globe to support Bitcoin builders in the industry. These grants, which total $250,000, will be allocated to specific projects in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and South Asia.
The largest grant of $50,000 was awarded to Gleb Naumenko, who has been hard at work on Bitcoin Core. Naumenko’s research efforts have been focused on SIGHASH_ANYPREVOUT and Eltoo as potential Bitcoin scaling solutions.
Another $50,000 grant was given to Furzy, also for work on Bitcoin Core. The emphasis here was on increasing stability, security, and performance.
A further $25,000 was allocated to Bitcoin4India, a community initiative focused on meetups, education, translation projects, and the support of local artisans.
Bitcoin Mountain, an organization that builds circular economies and hosts conferences, training sessions, and meetups in Cameroon, was given $25,000 to continue its work.
The We Are All Satoshi project, which seeks to identify teenage women and men from different religious backgrounds who are interested in tech and help them contribute to Bitcoin, was given $25,000 to develop curriculum, organize support networks, and sponsor projects.
Tor relay operator associations were also given $25,000 to support increased network reliability and performance, as recommended by the Tor Project. This is especially important in light of recent DOS attacks, as Tor is a key privacy tool used by people all around the world.
Finally, $25,000 was allocated to Bitcoin Magazine Ukraine to support regular Bitcoin meetups in Kyiv and the release of the first print edition of Bitcoin Magazine Ukraine.
The Human Rights Foundation’s Bitcoin Development Fund is making a significant contribution to the industry with its grants. These funds will help to further the development of Bitcoin and provide support to people around the globe who are working hard to make Bitcoin a success.
