We are excited to announce that SHAmory has been awarded a Geyser Grant! A huge thanks to the Geyser team as well as the judges who made this possible. The funds will be used to help support our education curriculum fundraiser that you can learn more about here.
What is a Geyser Grant?
Geyser Grants’ aim was to support the Bitcoin creator ecosystem. Whether you’re someone helping educate your community on the ground, creating online content or building lightning products, this Grant was made to give you a little boost. Thanks a bunch, Geyser team!
What was the process?
Geyser was able to raise 1 bitcoin from 3 anonymous donors as well as Wallet of Satoshi. From there, the grant submission was open during the month of July. A whopping 80 creators applied to receive a grant. From there, 6 board members reviewed applications following this criteria:
- Impact: To what degree will the project impact the ecosystem
- Needs: How funding intensive is the initiative
- POW: Does the creator show a history of POW
What were the results?
In the words of the Geyser team:
We were blown away by the amount of work that’s happening on the ground. But we had to be selective to maximize the impact of the 1BTC.Geyser Team
Of the 80 applications, 45 were selected to receive funding. This funding was split into three categories:
- GROUP 1: 丰5M sats
- GROUP 2: 丰2.5M sats
- GROUP 3: 丰1.25M sats
Thanks again to the Geyser team and judges for selecting SHAmory as one of the awardees! The best is yet to come as we continue to build fun bitcoin education for all ages.
