In order to further support the rapid growth of the Chainlink ecosystem, we’ve recently released the Chainlink Community Grant Program as a means of providing important financial resources to the many development teams and researchers building Chainlink, as well as the many additional developer resources that enable easy access to the network. Our goal with the grant program is to deploy substantial financial resources towards the creation of critical developer tooling, the addition of more high-quality data, and the launching of key services around the Chainlink Network, with strong academic research to support those developments. We encourage all the talented individual developers and development teams in our community to apply to the grant program here. If you are a researcher and you want to collaborate, contact us here.
We’re excited to announce that Fiews, a leading blockchain technology development shop focused on building infrastructure for Chainlink nodes, has been selected as a recipient of the Chainlink Community Grant Program. Fiews is receiving a grant to expand their role as an infrastructure provider in the Chainlink ecosystem, including:
- Provide an additional set of Ethereum nodes for Chainlink node operators to utilize as a backup broadcasting mechanism, enabling a fallback in the event that network access beyond their own full-node becomes necessary.
- Initial expansion into additional blockchains that the Chainlink Network supports, allowing Chainlink nodes in those ecosystems to have an additional backup for broadcasting.
- Continue to improve Fiews in its provision of highly reliable infrastructure to Chainlink node operators.
Fiews provides Chainlink nodes with a useful resource for obtaining a backup Ethereum full node connection. Given the resource requirements and administration overhead of running a high uptime blockchain node, Fiews ensures Chainlink nodes are still highly reliable in the event their primary Ethereum node experiences any delays or technical issues. ...
