The Chainlink Community Grant Program provides financial resources to the many development teams and researchers building a more functional and accessible Chainlink Network. We encourage talented individual developers and development teams to apply to the grant program here, or if you are a researcher and want to collaborate, contact us.
We’re excited to announce that Protofire, a provider of blockchain development services, has been selected as a recipient of a blockchain integration grant for the native integration of Chainlink into the Avalanche blockchain. The grant will support Chainlink ecosystem projects building on Avalanche across numerous markets like DeFi, tokenized assets, gaming, and more. With the goal of servicing the demands of the smart contract economy across various blockchains, this grant represents direct financial support for a new crop of decentralized applications being developed on the Avalanche blockchain.
Protofire is a recognized provider of development services and consultancy around blockchain technology, building decentralized protocols, smart contracts, applications, and developer tools (SDKs/APIs). Their team has contributed to the development of many top projects in the blockchain ecosystem, including Maker, 0x, Tezos, Gnosis, Kyber Network, The Graph, Synthetix, and more. Protofire recently received a community grant to support a Chainlink integration with the xDAI blockchain, proving they already possess experience and expertise in integrating Chainlink’s chain-agnostic oracle technology natively into new networks like Avalanche. They are also currently contributing to the Avalanche-Ethereum Bridge, a two-way token bridge for transferring ERC-20 and ERC-721 tokens and bootstrapping liquidity on Avalanche.
Avalanche is an open-source platform for launching decentralized applications, new financial primitives, and interoperable blockchains. It currently uses two consensus protocols, which can support thousands to millions of network participants: 1) Avalanche–DAG-optimized consensus protocol which is high-throughput, parallelizable, and simple to prune; and 2) Snowman–a chain-optimized consensus protocol that is high-throughput, ...
