App-Specific Rollup Cartesi Announces a $1 Million Ecosystem Grants Initiative

January 30, 2024 – New York City, New York

Developers can receive up to $50,000 USDC per project, plus dedicated tech support, introduction to accelerators and investors, marketing support and project consulting.

Cartesi (CTSI), an app-specific rollup protocol with a virtual machine that runs Linux distributions, announced today an allocation for $1 million to the Cartesi Grants Program.

The program is dedicated to fostering developer talent and enriching the Cartesi ecosystem by supporting new ideas and DApps, research and integrations, developer tooling and gaming.

Independent developers, founding teams, DAOs, communities and collectives can apply starting today, Tuesday, January 30, 2024, and have the opportunity to receive up to $50,000 USDC per project, subject to community vote.

Through this grants program, Cartesi aims to increase the number of long-term contributors and developers building novel applications on Cartesi.

Areas of focus
  • New ideas and DApps Applications and experiments built using the Cartesi framework that offer value to the broader ecosystem. Currently, Cartesi is supporting Complex Vouchers, an advanced voucher system for external interactions.
  • Research and integrations Split into two tracks, track one focuses on research and solutions that integrate Cartesi technology with other innovative technologies. For example, Cartenix uses the Cartesi VM and Nix Package system to leverage reproducible builds in a deterministic and verifiable environment. Having this on-chain provides a much higher level of security and trustlessness for developers.
  • Research and integrations Track two is dedicated to in-depth research on topics identified as crucial for the advancement of the Cartesi ecosystem – for example, open-source research associated with RISC-V, ZK and Cartesi.
  • Developer tooling Tools that simplify and enhance the experience for developers building on Cartesi. For example, Drand is a component of a larger set of tools for generating random numbers on Cartesi’s convenience layer. The goal is to create a framework for Cartesi that will make it easy for Web 3.0 developers to create DApps using Cartesi.
  • Gaming Games that uniquely leverage the capabilities of Cartesi, such as open-source games that can be reused and built upon, game frameworks, convenience layers and other infrastructure contributions. Currently under development is Dazzle, a competitive online puzzle RPG that leverages Cartesi…
