Decentralized CPU power developer Golem is spinning off a new entity using funds of the original capital raised in its crowdfunding back in 2016

In a blog post on June 28, Golem Factory CEO Julian Zawistowski announced the launch of a new division called the Golem Foundation, which will purportedly allow Golem to expand its solutions and “potentially increase the value of the entire project.”

The new foundation will be led by Zawistowski, as well as his colleague Andrzej Regulski, who was COO at the firm, while two other Golem co-founders, Piotr Janiuk and Aleksandra Skrzypczak, will be solely responsible for the Golem Factory.

Тhe report cited a new $40 million transaction in ether (ETH) and GNT sent on June 28 from the multi-signature account of the Golem Factory to the Foundation.

The Poland-based Golem Network is a cryptocurrency and peer-to-peer (P2P) application developer that raised about 820,000 ETH ($256 million at press time) back in its crowdfunding campaign in late 2016. Based on the Ethereum blockchain, the company developed a P2P computing ecosystem in order to deliver global decentralized CPU power.

Last year, Golem joined the Ethereum Community Fund (EFC) that aims to connect and fund the growth of the Ethereum infrastructure along with projects such as OmiseGo, Cosmos and Maker, among others.
