Polkadot (DOT) founder announces $774 million development fund for DeFi
Following DOT‘s rally last week, driven by the announcement of Polkadot’s highly-anticipated parachain auctions, Gavin Wood teased $774 million ready to be spent on innovative ideas.
Polkadot, created by Wood, currently has 18,936,300 DOT in its treasury, which can, according to the founder, instead of being slowly burned by the protocol, fund anything that the networks governance believes valuable.Building, improving, educating, and beyond
“The Polkadot treasury currently has 18,936,300 DOT (DOT, not USD – do the math) in it ready to spend on *your* ideas for building, improving, educating and indeed, anything else that the Polkadot governance believes valuable,” Wood wrote on Twitter, inviting DOT holders to put forward their suggestions for furthering the networks growth.
The networks proposed on-chain governance system takes into consideration token holders, validators, a Council, and a Technical Committee.
“The DOT in the treasury comes as a natural part of the network protocol. Fees, slashes and suboptimal staking configurations are all contributing factors,” the creator of Polkadot and Kusama continued to explain where the funds are coming from.
“If it goes unused, it slowly gets burned. It currently burns 239,988 DOT every month,” he added.Ready for parachain launch
The networks first parachain slot auctions are proposed to begin on November 11, as the heterogeneous multichain architecture outlined in the Polkadot Whitepaper comes close to unraveling.
DOT‘s price rose more than 16% during the past 7-day period, following the developers’ announcement that Polkadot is technically ready to support its first parachains – diverse, specialized blockchains that will actualize the networks groundbreaking multichain architecture.
Parachains will mark the last stage of Polkadots multi-phase launch process that commenced in May last year, with the rollout of the initial, proof-of-authority version of the Polkadot Relay Chain.
