OKCoin developer grants total over $500,000 with the latest grant going to Bitcoin’s most active contributor since 2017.
Crypto exchange OKCoin has continued to support Bitcoin (BTC) Core developers with a fourth grant being awarded to Bitcoin’s most active contributor since 2017, Marco Falke for an undisclosed six-figure sum.
This grant brings the total amount provided as part of the company’s Independent Developer Grant to over $500,000.
OKCoin believes that funding open-source development of the Bitcoin network is critical to the growth of the entire crypto ecosystem.
CEO Hong Fang said, “Supporting Marco’s work on strengthening the testing framework in addition to his general responsibilities as a maintainer is important to continuing quality development.”
This grant will allow Falke to focus on modularizing the Bitcoin Core code, ensuring that the code is clearly segmented in order for developers to have a targeted focus.
