Parity enjoys $5 million grant from Ethereum Foundation

Posted 08 January, 2019

Ethereum Foundation started this week with a $5 million grant awarded to Parity Technologies team for further development of the Ethereum platform, including its security and scalability level.

As the company stated in the press release, the Parity team has been playing an important role in "the Ethereum ecosystem for their leadership in core development efforts." It should be mentioned the Parity Ethereum client among other developments. 

In addition, Parity announced during Devcon4 held in Prague their intentions to work on Serenity Implementation, which is said to be an important trend for the network.

"By all metrics, Parity is a major technical contributor to the Ethereum project, and they’ve notably done so as a self-financed and open-sourced effort since their founding," said Ethereum Foundation.

This funding will reportedly help the Parity team to continue development of Casper, light clients, developer tools, QA, audits and other issues. The grant will be provided in several stages.

Specifically, the first stage covers support of the finished products, while the rest of the allocated capital will be transferred once the company shows certain development achievements and may finance the completion of the eWasm compatibility work, light client launch and sharding Phase 0 and 1.
