CLRFund round 9 is coming!

Wow, time flies!

It’s been more than a year since the last canonical round, in the meantime we’ve been heads down building along with helping to run several other rounds using the clrf.und stack, one for the LatAm community around Devcon in Colombia last year, one for the Ethereum Staking community, and a handful of other smaller rounds for other communities.

But, it’s about time we got back to our roots and started running canonical rounds again to support the Ethereum ecosystem’s public goods.

So with that in mind, we’re excited to announce that round 9 will go live on June 26th with a ~$50k matching pool! 🎉

Recipient registration is open now at Get your registrations in ASAP to ensure that your project is live before the round begins.

  • 🤲 Free and open source
    Your project must be free to use and any code associated with your project should be available to anyone under an open source license.
  • 👯‍♀️ Not clones

  • 🙋‍♀️ Legitimate
    The project you submit must be yours or you must have permission from the project owner.
