Cronos Welcomes Dora Factory as Validator Node Operator, Cronos Labs Partners with DoraHacks to Expand Developer Community
Cronos Labs is excited to announce a new partnership with Dora Factory, a community driven public good infrastructure that validates multiple crucial Web3 networks to contribute to decentralization, as well as to fund grassroot innovation via native block rewards. As a strategic ecosystem partner, Dora Factory will join Cronos as a validator node operator, contributing to the stability and security of the network.
As part of the partnership, Dora Factory will dedicate 70% of the network revenue it earns as a validator to fund hackathons and grants in the Cronos ecosystem. These funds will be managed by a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) on the Cronos network, ensuring transparency and community input into the allocation of funds.
Cronos Labs is also pleased to announce a partnership with DoraHacks, a global hackathon organizer that seeks to create a sustainable developer community. DoraHacks successfully organized the first Cronos Hackathon in late 2021 with 64 project submissions. Together, Cronos Labs and DoraHacks will provide developers with the tools, resources, and support they need to create innovative decentralized applications (dApps) on the Cronos network.
Through hackathons, workshops, and other educational events, the partnership will foster a vibrant and sustainable developer community that can drive the growth and adoption of the Cronos ecosystem. The partnership will also promote diversity, inclusion, and collaboration within the developer community.
“We are thrilled to partner with Dora Factory and DoraHacks to expand the Cronos developer community and support the creation of innovative decentralized applications. Through these partnerships, we aim to empower developers to build on the Cronos network and drive the growth of the ecosystem,” said Ken Timsit, Head of Cronos Labs. “We look forward to working together to create a more secure, robust and sustainable network.”
“At DoraHacks we are proud to continue working with the Cronos team with this long term partnership as we believe that the Cronos ecosystem is growing at a rapid pace with some fantastic development taking place,” said Steve Ngok, Partner at DoraHacks. “As a strategic partner and a Public Good Validator we are excited to support developers and onboard strong teams to the ecosystem.”
