These are exciting times at Tezos, which address key barriers facing blockchain adoption to date: smart contract safety, long-term upgradability, and open participation. With core protocol updates (Florence up and running with Granada in tow!) to growing ecosystem adoption across use cases from DeFi ($7M TVL in Plenty Defi, 3 days post-launch) to NFTs (Red Bull F1 racing collectables on the way), there has never been a better time to build on Tezos. With one of the largest talent pools of top-notch builders, India is poised to be the hub of the Tezos revolution.
Tezos India has been at the forefront of evangelising Tezos in partnership with Devfolio, through the TezIndia hackathon and as a season sponsor for university hackathons across the country.
The pilot edition a year ago saw over 1400 applications from which emerged the best of the best who made it to the fellowship cohort. The fellows built exemplary project from quadratic funding platforms to NFT enabled Cricket Fantasy Leagues. Selected projects have received upto $10,000 in follow-up grants to carry on the good work. Take a lookback at the fellows' journey here.
