Vault to boost Fantom’s dApps ecosystem
Announcing the official launch of Vault, Fantom said: blog post Funding mechanisms include governance proposals from the community.
The project represents the continued evolution of Fantom as the community looks to further decentralization, the Fantom Foundation team writes.
Vault’s on-chain mechanism enables a funding profile that allows projects and developers looking to build decentralized apps (dApps) in the ecosystem to secure funding. As previously mentioned, the funding pool also gives the Fantom community the opportunity to contribute to the growth of the blockchain through funding decisions.
The Ecosystem Vault will be funded from 10% of transaction fees, according to the Fantom Foundation. The community manages these funds. This is a result of the reduced burn rate of the native token FTM.
Anyone can apply for funds in Vault. This process requires the applicant to develop her Fantom Governance proposal (a 100 FTM fee will be charged). The proposal would then require approval from 55% of the community based on his 55% quorum. The foundation tweeted:
