Ecosystem Fund Roadmap

A fund designed to support sustainable, long-term growth of the xDai chain

xDai STAKE Ecosystem fund unlocks began March 31, 2021. This is an important fund designed to support the further development, expansion, and adoption of xDai and STAKE. As such, funds will be used in a number of ways.

Here we offer some initial use cases for the fund. We will continue to expand this page, adding additional uses and use-cases as they arise. If you have an idea for usage that aligns with xDai values (long-term growth, neutral ecosystem expansion, security and support, and sustainable project development) please feel free to propose in our forum.

Ecosystem Fund Details:

Funding Allocations Q2 2021

Funding amounts are approximate and provided in STAKE. We will include additional details such as tx hashes, gnosis safe addresses and other data as they become available.

We are exploring additional measures to ensure fund transparency and funding alignment with community and development needs. Look for more updates soon re: fund allocation governance and reporting.

STAKE Multi-Chain Staking

  • Amount TBD

  • While initially implemented on the xDai chain, STAKE is designed for use on additional networks for staking and other utilities. This initiative will increase STAKE usage and demand as additional networks are able to utilize STAKE for security.

xDai Community Initiatives and Other Use Cases

  • Amount TBD

  • Community members can suggest usage for funds by creating a proposal and a linked snapshot where users can vote on proposed usage of the funds. This acts a signaling mechanism for the community and what innovations they would like to see on xDai.

  • Community member support. A community member sent a large amount of STAKE accidentally to an unrecoverable address. They were able to prove their identity and mistake and the community voted to support this member, while the member pledged to burn 30% of the amount received to benefit STAKE holders.

  • Community supported rebranding effort. Raidguild branding proposal was widely supported by the community and funded from the xDai side. Coordination is currently ongoing with no definitive timeline in place. Updates can be followed on the forum post.
