Zcash Community Grants Program

  • Zcash Community Grants exists to fund projects that advance the usability, security, privacy, and adoption of Zcash, a privacy-focused cryptocurrency.
  • Zcash Community Grants was created by community members of the Zcash cryptocurrency in ZIP 1014, working within the Zcash governance process. Zcash Community Grants is a technology advisory board that constitutes a committee of the Zcash Foundation.
  • Funding for Zcash Community Grants comes from a slice of the Zcash protocol Dev Fund as put forth by ZIP 1014, which allocates a portion of the block subsidy of each block.

  • If you have an idea for a major grant that you’re not sure is within the scope of ZCG funding, please email a summary proposal to grants@zfnd.org.  A summary proposal will allow the committee to assess whether your project is aligned with ZCG’s interests before you take the time to submit a formal application with a full grant proposal.  A summary proposal should not exceed 500 words, and should include a short description of the project, technical approach/methodology, estimated time required for development, and amount of funding requested. Please allow two weeks for a response.
  • Please direct any questions to grants@zfnd.org. Thank you!
