Three leading DAOs get funding support from BitDAO
zkDAO is a $200 million accelerator focused on providing funding and grants to projects inside the zkSync ecosystem. The DAO will also fund ecosystem education, research, and security. ZK Rollups capable of general computation are often considered key to Ethereum’s endgame, but a year ago, leading researchers believed we were many years away but they have already launched the first EVM-compatible ZK Rollup on public testnet.
EduDAO is funding university ecosystems to support the innovators of tomorrow! Rather than disparate university ecosystems, we imagine a world of collaboration and community. The EduDAO model will initially allocate $11 million annually to eight prestigious universities groups to promote information sharing and blockchain innovation. Each university group will operate autonomously, controlling allocated budgets to provide students and faculty creative freedom. EduDAO aims to provide university groups with a wider reach, enabling blockchain innovation through funding as well as advancing collaboration and information sharing worldwide.
Last but not least for funding is Game7, a Collective formed to accelerate the Blockchain Gaming industry through Grants, Education, and Strategic Initiatives. Game7 is an upcoming $500 million blockchain ecosystem acceleration decentralized autonomous organization or DAO. Other entities backing Game7 include Forte, Alameda Research, Mirana Ventures, Warner Music Group, Aleo, Avalanche, Interchain Foundation, Offchain Labs, OP Games, Polygon Studios, and Solana Ventures. Forte Labs and Magnus proposed its creation.
With over $2 billion in the Treasury Balance, they are busy allocating and growing the blockchain ecosystem. BitDAO is owned and governed by BIT token holders. BitDAO aims to support builders of the decentralized economy and showcase the promise of DAOs. It is an open platform for proposals that are voted upon by BIT token holders. It is agnostic to chains and projects.
BitDAO also announced a partnership with Encode Club this week that will see BitDAO sponsor a four-week DAO Hack, helping hackers to learn about blockchain and DAOS through a series of workshops.
