Prominent members of the Ethereum ecosystem open a fund designed to support projects developed on the blockchain of the second largest crypto currency. This is reported by CoinDesk.

Cosmos, Golem, Global Blockchain Labs, Maker, OmiseGo, Raiden and Tendermint are involved in the creation of the Ethereum Community Fund (ECF). Their goal is to introduce the services on the basis of Ethereum in the infrastructure of companies, which they can be useful.

The fund's founders also intend to launch a grant program that will provide "permanent financial security" to selected projects, the press release said.

The founder of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin directly participates in the work of the fund, in a letter to CoinDesk confirming that he acts as an adviser.

Ethereum has grown beyond my expectations over the last few years, but the work is clearly not finished. Delivering value that matches the hype should be the mantra of 2018; efforts such as the ECF which help organize the development of the ecosystem are going to help make that possible.

ECF is not the only organization dedicated to the development of the Ethereum ecosystem. Ethereum Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that also makes a significant contribution to the development of the platform, in January announced the launch of two sponsorship programs designed for developers seeking solutions to scale the network. The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance provides resources to companies interested in applying Ethereum, and links Fortune 500 companies with crypto-cash start-ups.
