Got a fantastic idea for a project, but need some BTC to make it happen?

Apply for a grant from the Bitcoin Foundation:
  https://bitcoinfoundation.org/blog/?p=58

Deadline is February 15'th.

Good grant proposals are for things that are clearly a benefit to the whole Bitcoin ecosystem and that are the kind of "common good" thing that doesn't have a clear business plan.  (if you have an idea with a clear business plan then you should talk to an angel investor or venture capitalist to get some funding).

Examples (I'm sure you can think of better):

  • I'd love to see somebody run a free input-mixing service. A grant could cover server costs to run a server that takes connections over tor to coordinate mixes.
  • Know any economists? A grant could pay to write some tools to extra bitcoin transaction data for an enterprising economist who might want to study the Bitcoin economy.
  • There have been some very interesting research papers suggesting possible changes to core Bitcoin. A grant might pay for somebody to actually implement the ideas and demonstrate them on the -testnet.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner.  Hopefully there will be another round in the future.  Smiley

Thanks, Gavin.
