Funding for Zcash ecosystem projects

Development, research, and community growth. Help us build a better Zcash by creating a proposal or requesting an improvement!

Open Requests from the ZF

The Zcash Foundation will periodically open up requests for proposals that have financial incentives attached to them in the form of fixed bounties.

Proposals will be reviewed and chosen based on the ZF’s confidence in the team and their plan.

To be eligible for funding from the Zcash Foundation, teams must provide identifying information for legal reasons.

If none of the RFPs catch your eye, check out the list of promising ideas!

No open requests at this time

But don’t let that stop you! Proposals can be submitted at any time.

How it works

Individuals and teams submit proposals against requests from the community or the Zcash Foundation, or submit one of their own ideas
The proposal is reviewed by the Zcash Foundation, after which the proposal may be accepted with or without funding. In cases where the proposal is accepted without funding, the community may donate directly when the team has set a tip address.
The proposal is then opened up to the community to discuss, provide feedback, and optionally donate to the team
The proposal creator(s) post updates with their progress, and if having received a bounty, are paid out as they reach project milestones
