Community Fund

Introduction to the community fund, its assets, and its relationship to the on-chain reserve.

What is the Community Fund?

The Community Fund provides for general upkeep of the Celo platform. CELO holders decide how to allocate these funds through governance proposals. Funds might be used to pay bounties for bugs or vulnerabilities, security audits, or grants for protocol development.

Community Fund Assets

The Community Fund receives assets from two sources:

  • The Community Fund obtains a desired epoch reward defined as a fraction of the total desired epoch rewards (governable, initially planned to be 25%25\%). This amount is subject to adjustment up or down in the event of under- or over-spending against the epoch rewards target schedule.

  • The Community Fund is the default destination for slashed assets.
