$10,000 Grant from ACINQ SAS


In April 2020, I chimed in on the mailing list to ask if there was interest in funding work to improve the mempool.

In mid-June, I got an e-mail from Pierre-Marie Padiou, the CEO of ACINQ, offering a $10k grant to support this work. ACINQ is one of the leading Lightning Network companies, so it makes sense that they are prioritizing R&D to improve the mempool, but it’s very meaningful that an earlier stage startup is stepping up and dedicating resources to a commons project. Bravo ACINQ!
