The Interchain Foundation (ICF) is delighted to announce the publication of key financial figures and funding activity for the last quarter of 2020. The Foundation maintains a very professional and conservative asset management approach which ensures sustainable capital deployment for the Cosmos project for many more years to come.

Since its inception in 2017, the ICF has been subject to full financial audits and is happy to announce that during all reporting periods unqualified audit reports have been received by an independent auditor.

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.
