I'm posting this as a favor to someone else; it isn't related to my work at CEA.
The Fugue Foundation is an Ethereum-based blockchain organization (if that terminology makes sense, I'm not a crypto person). They want to use that technology in service of an EA-oriented mission.
To that effect, they're looking to find two EA nonprofits to set up Ethereum validator nodes and receive the attendant rewards (they estimate ~$5k/year, paid out quarterly).
The necessary conditions:
- The org has 501(c)3 tax-exempt status
- The org is able/willing to receive donations in the form of ETH
- "In addition to providing funds to the EANO, FF sees this grant as an opportunity to promote education and career enhancing skills within the open source blockchain community. Thus, a primary requirement for receipt of this grant is that the EANO identify individuals - either within the EANO itself or external volunteers affliated with or supportive of the EANO - to run their own testnet validator node (i.e., the
etherinvolved has no market value)."
If you have any questions, I recommend reaching out to the foundation rather than posting them here.
If you have concerns, posting them here is fine; as I mentioned, I'm not a crypto person, so there may be some downside to this project that I'm not aware of.
