It is used by projects such as Frontier, Coinstats, UnoRe, Darkblock, Zeroswap, Polkastarter, Public Mint, Pandora, DePay, Bird Money, and many other top builders of Web3.

The Unmarshal team now gets support from Kadena Eco to provide data infrastructure services to builders on the network.

Special thanks to Hypercent for introducing us to Team Kadena and assisting us with acquiring the grant.

Kadena Eco’s Inaugural Grant Cohort and why they Chose Unmarshal

Back in April, Kadena launched a $100 million Grant Program to inspire builders to come and innovate on the Kadena network. The objective? To support early-stage, Kadena-based projects by providing product and technical feedback as well as providing monetary and marketing assistance. The aim was also to align incentives with new builders, foster collaboration and knowledge sharing between teams, and help projects grow within the broader ecosystem.

All high-quality, open-source projects for Web3 Infrastructure, gaming, metaverse, NFT, DeFi and DAOs were welcome to apply for the grants and judged based on:

  • Technical strength
  • Detail of specifications
  • Team experience
  • Usefulness to the Kadena ecosystem

After thorough analysis of the project’s long-term plans, and getting to know the respective founders, Unmarshal was shortlisted for the program.

As per Dan Wiggins, Head of Gaming, Kadena Eco:

“These projects caught our attention because they’re united in their long-term approach to building, integrity, and technical expertise. We also considered many factors before deciding on each grant, such as a team’s overall commitment — was it just an idea, or were they already writing PACT and participating in Discord? We also looked at how much sweat equity and other resources each team has invested into its project. We wanted to know: who’s in this for real? ”

How Unmarshal Plans to Collaborate with Kadena

Unmarshal will work hand-in-hand with Kadena with a long term commitment to support the growth of their ecosystem. Together we will promote web3.0 with initiatives such as a dApp bounty program, where incentives are allocated to developers who use Unmarshal APIs to build on Kadena.

“Kadena is one of the promising L1s to look out for. It is built for scale. Happy to join hands with them to build the future of web3. Partnering early on will give us time to grow together”
- Manohar K, Founder & CEO, Unmarshal

We will provide DApp builders with the necessary on-chain back-end data while they can focus on building their application’s functionality.

As the pioneer of on-chain data on the unique Kadena Network, we are all geared up to be able to help projects at all stages of development succeed on this platform.
