Ethereum started with a crowdsale, but can only be sustained by us

Panvala is a donor-driven platform that helps fund the work that the whole Ethereum community depends on.

The Ethereum community succeeds together

Support the most important work

Countless projects and people depend upon the Ethereum blockchain for their success. Problems like security and scalability span the entire ecosystem, but there aren’t reliable business models to solve these problems that will affect millions (and even billions) of people’s lives. Contributing to Panvala rewards the teams who solve those problems.

Respected status among 

blockchain innovators

Panvala’s token holders vote on what work should be funded. The demand for their tokens is tied to being good stewards of the Panvala ecosystem. That’s why they work hard to build donors’ confidence that their donations will benefit from crowd-sourced, incentivized wisdom.

Panvala donors receive recognition everywhere the Panvala community gathers. They receive collectible badges in their Ethereum wallets that can be displayed in any Ethereum application. In our community, it’s not the loudest voices that are respected—it’s the people and companies that contribute to Panvala.

The Sigma Prime and Prysmatic Labs teams received a Panvala grant for their work on implementing the Ethereum 2.0 specification. Their work is indispensable for making Ethereum scale to serve its role as the hub of the decentralized world.

Our founder, Niran Babalola, discusses the problems Ethereum is facing today: 

“The core problem that we’re facing is that the ecosystem funding is unsustainable. A lot of the common infrastructure that we all rely on is being funded by one team or another that raised funds in a one shot deal. And they’re spending down those funds and eventually they’re going to run out.

The second problem that we’re facing is that the incentive system that allowed us to build Ethereum in the first place doesn’t really work for improving the system over time.”

Teams across many different projects have submitted grant applications to be evaluated by Panvala’s token holders in the second round of token grants. The list of grant applications is available for viewing.
