Global Program’s First Seven Supported Projects Come From Four Continents

AVA has awarded the first class of grants through its accelerator AVA-X, which supports developers building decentralized financial applications, infrastructure, and tooling on the AVA platform. With these grants and technical support for integrations, the projects and teams are bringing new value to the community of users and fellow developers.

“AVA-X is our moonshot factory, and this first batch of grants has massive potential to accelerate and exponentially improve the impact of decentralized systems on AVA,” says Kevin Sekniqi of AVA Labs. “Each project is driven by talented teams of developers who understand both the challenges and opportunities of getting decentralized applications into the hands of users around the world.”
