Grant in the cryptocurrency industry is an important point of growth. Both the growth of the whole crypto-space and the personal growth of individuals and new teams. For many months I explored these opportunities. I'm planning to apply to some of these grants with the newly created blockchain ventures team which I joined recently, and I'm happy to share this information with all of you, my crypto-blog readers.
So these 26 grants are more than enough to start. You might choose one or even several opportunities, apply, and have a chance to grow crypto-industry together.

In Cardano ecosystem, there is a decentralized fund, Project Catalyst where proposals are voted by the community. Current Fund3 has a budget of $500K and the following Fund4 will have $750K budget, future fund budget is supposed to grow.
