Foundation for Internet Domain Registration funds Internet of Coins

25 Aug 2015 / Dotrego

Since our previous update before summer, we have been focusing on securing funding for continuous development. Today, we learned our efforts bear fruit. As of the 25th of August, the Stichting Internet Domeinregistratie Nederland (SIDN, or Foundation for Internet Domain Registration Netherlands) announced their support for development of the Internet of Coins, and awarded us with a Pioneer grant!

SIDN operates as registry for second level domain names in the Netherlands. Its foundation supports innovative projects which inspire an open and free use of Internet. We are very pleased with their support and will continue to cooperate as the project evolves. Part of the money will be used for coding bounties.

During our quest for angels, someone asked us "Why aren't you doing a digital ITO or IPO to acquire funding?"
Of course we would not be the first project. But let's be clear on this. We do not want you as a consumer to spend your cash on a project which is still in development. And like any startup, we are working with pivoting goals between timeboxes. So we aim to secure development 'the old-fashioned way'. Try out our client once there is a beta.

As part of this strategy, we have decided to separate the Internet of Coins project from our smart contracting agency Metasync, so it becomes its own entity as a non-profit foundation. Stay tuned for more info, or get in touch.
