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 key 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, or if you are a researcher and want to collaborate, contact us here.
We are excited to announce that Giulia Fanti, a leading blockchain and distributed systems academic researcher, has been selected as a research grant recipient from the Chainlink Community Grant Program. As part of the research grant, Giulia will be collaborating with Chainlink Labs and our research team to work on the future development of the Chainlink Network, further expanding the number of world-class academics and developers helping build Chainlink.
Giulia’s research interests span the algorithmic foundations of blockchains, distributed systems, privacy-preserving technologies, and machine learning. She is receiving a Chainlink grant specifically to further her work on:
- Order fairness as part of Chainlink’s Fair Sequencing Services — using Chainlink oracle networks to achieve fair transaction ordering for blockchain transactions to reduce MEV
- Further improvements in scalability for the networking around Chainlink’s off-chain aggregation — building secure, high-throughput oracle computation at a cost-effective price
Giulia Fanti is an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. She is also a faculty member/scientist at the Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Contracts ...
