A lot has been happening behind the scenes at the Ecosystem Development Fund over the past months. We’ve been working on a number of changes to make the EDF more transparent and responsive to the IOTA community.
Most notably we’ve gotten back to everyone who’ve submitted a grant thus far to update them on the status of their application. For those whose status is pending we will be going through the grants in the next few weeks classifying and responding to these applications.
With this blogpost, the Ecosystem Team is happy to announce three new grantees. All of whom will improve our understanding of IOTA and the Tangle.
Whether this is through research or through the development of monitoring tools, we are looking forward to see the progress these three projects will make within the next few months. We will ensure the community is continually updated on the progress of these grants via blog posts.
Alexander Ladas (known in our community as cyclux), Maximilian Beck (Maximilian), and Evaldas Drasutis (Lunfardo) are three of the IOTA Ecosystem’s most known Community Developers.

As part of the grant, these three tools will be open sourced, documented and unified into UNTANGLE IOTA (UNIO).
In this combination, UNIO will be able to ensure data integrity while providing a good overall reflection of the state and health of a Tangle within an intuitive consolidated dashboard. Not only that, UNIO will also provide API access to data for consumption by other applications.
We are very excited to collaborate and combine efforts through the UNIO project! With support from the Ecosystem Fund, we will be able to exploit the full potential of our ...
