Cosmos Jobs Launches

Last week was the public launch of https://jobs.cosmos.network, the new jobs directory for projects linked to Cosmos and the wider Internet of Blockchains. The website was built by Promise Protocols as part of the Q2 funding cycle. The site is being maintained by Promise Protocols with special support from ICF, Tendermint and superstar Daniela Pavin aka @catdotfish. There is also a new Twitter account at @JobsCosmos where new opportunities are regularly featured. …

Try Cosmos Jobs Now!

As we well know, the goal of Cosmos Network since its birth has always been to become the “Internet of Blockchains”, thus bringing in the crypto industry the missing piece for true mass adoption.

While our ecosystem’s Core Teams are realizing this incredible goal with the final tests to the Stargate and Big Bang testnets, Interchain Foundation has certainly not been idle and has decided to provide people with a platform that has the function that Cosmos Hub has in its IBC dream.

How, you may be wondering.

Well, Interchain Foundation, thanks to the brilliant work done by Promise Protocol, has created a recruitment-specific platform named Cosmos Jobs.

Q3 Funded Proposals

Our third quarter of funding proposals closed submissions on August 31st. We spent another month reviewing the applications internally, compiling the proposals that the Board of Management decided to recommend and including comments from the Technical Advisory Board. From there the Foundation Council was able to come to consensus on what projects to fund and the time spent since then was on finalizing service agreements and getting all the proper signatures. The following proposals have now been formalized and work has begun by the respective teams. …

Our third quarter of funding proposals closed submissions on August 31st. This is the second time this new process has been followed since the update earlier this year. We spent another month reviewing the applications internally, compiling the proposals that the Board of Management decided to recommend. These were included with comments from the Technical Advisory Board and submitted to the Foundation Council for approval. The time spent since then was on finalizing service agreements and getting the required signatures.

The following proposals have now been finalized and work has begun by the respective teams. This comes in tandem with another Q3 Financial Transparency Report. Applications for Q4 closed on October 31st in order to give time during the holidays to review all submissions. …

19 Cosmos Org GitHub Teams

Earlier this year All in Bits (dba Tendermint Inc) transferred ownership of the Cosmos github organization to the ICF. Since there are so many different contributors at this point it made more sense to coordinate permissions from the ICF level. A proposal to utilize github teams was created in order to make sure everyone had the proper access to the code they contribute to and after being agreed upon by all stakeholders it has finally been implemented. There are now 19 teams within the Cosmos org who contribute to or maintain various repositories. These include Agoric, Akash, All in Bits, Althea, Chainapsis, ChainSafe, Confio, Fission, Informal, Interchain, Iqlusion, Iris, Lunie, Promise, Regen, Sikka, SnowFork, Vitwit and Zondax. We look forward to leveraging the collaborative tools we have to share responsibilities across a distributed network of contributors. …

Q4 Grants Deadline Updated to October 31st

Based on the new quarterly cadence of the ICF funding program you should have expected the deadline for Q4 to be at the end of November. However, since the last two weeks of December are typically spent on holidays, and to improve the review process by adding two weeks, we’ve decided to move the deadline for Q4 applications up to October 31st. This will allow a total of six weeks to fulfill the review process and leaves the last two weeks of the year open for everyone to spend on holidays…
