The IOST Foundation, the organization behind the IOST blockchain, a gas-efficient proof-of-believability-powered smart contract platform, announced today together with venture capital institutions and ecosystem partners, the launch of a new $100 million USD incentive fund for EVM developers, aiming to incubate projects and propel the growth of IOST’s multi-chain ecosystem.
On March 31, 2022, IOST unveiled Project Entroverse, a roadmap goal to build a growing, interoperable, and interconnected blockchain network.
This newly announced 100 million USD fund under Project Entroverse targets developers around the world, and consists of the “New Ecosystem Fund” and the “Accelerator Fund.”
The leading investor of the fund is Big Candle Capital. The scope of this exclusive fund is not limited to applicants developing dApps on the IOST chain exclusively; all outstanding projects deployed on other EVM-compatible chains with multi-chain development plans are also welcome to apply for support.
Big Candle Capital is a venture capital firm established in 2017 by the IOST Foundation in conjunction with several investment institutions and ecosystem partner nodes. Big Candle Capital has invested in more than 80 projects, including IOST, LINK, BNB, DOT, UNI, and DYDX, which were highly successful and achieved an overall return of 1000%, with a peak operated asset valuation of over $700M.
BCC is focused on projects at various stages of development in sectors including DeFi, NFT, GameFi, Web3, and Metaverse-based dApps. However, all teams and ideas are welcome. Moreover, BCC also provides auxiliary services such as funding, technology, token model, advertising, community building, and connections with exchanges for the invested projects.
