Worldcoin has launched a new grants program for developers and outlining plans to decentralize the network.
In a today's blog post, Worldcoin Foundation announced a grants program, a "Worldcoin Tech Tree" and a whitepaper on decentralization.
In this blog post, Worldcoin said it aims to achieve "distributed robustness" - in the way that TCP/IP, WiFi or the English language have. It will focus on three areas including the decentralization of orb production, meaning independent teams will begin manufacturing them; new forms of distributed governance; and balancing its emphasis on robustness with the need for privacy.
Worldcoin will launch a grants program with an initial pool of $5 million to award to developers, with grants denominated in WLD. "One of the sexiest items in the grants program is to become a second manufacturer of orbs and spin up an entire factory. And one step further would be that you actually design your own orbs in-house." said Remco Bloemen, Head of blockchain at Worldcoin.
