On May 30, the FVNI Development Society in collaboration with Bitcoin.com, Bitcoincash.org, Electron Cash, Bitcoincash.com and a multitude of individuals and businesses in China launched a new fundraiser to support the software engineers who maintain the technical development of the Bitcoin Cash network. The goal for Phase One is to raise 800 BCH by August 1, 2019, and BCH supporters can help fund development by visiting Bitcoin.com/fundraise, the front page of Bitcoincash.org and a number of other websites.
Help Fund the Bitcoin Cash Roadmap
The developers of Bitcoin Cash need support from the community and more importantly from businesses to continue implementing the roadmap toward becoming peer-to-peer cash for the planet’s 7.7 billion citizens. The executive director and cofounder of FVNI Development Society, David R. Allen, has coordinated a fundraiser with several groups so that the business community and individuals can get involved with funding many of the developers who have been great assets to the BCH ecosystem. FVNI is a non-profit organization that supports Bitcoin Cash software developers and has provided support to projects such as Bitcoin ABC, Electron Cash, and the Bitcoincash.org website.
FVNI was set up in early 2018 as a not-for-profit society. Allen told news.Bitcoin.com that it was clear there was a need for an organization to help support the work of many teams and projects working on the infrastructure that forms the foundation under the growing Bitcoin Cash economy. Grants are allocated by a selection committee, with the mandate of investing in the needed technical development for the long term success of Bitcoin Cash.
