dRPC Startup Sponsorship Program Kick-Off

Introduction

The dRPC Startup Sponsorship Program kickoff just happened – what we believe is a dynamic initiative designed to support Web3 visionaries in their quest to expand the blockchain ecosystem and expedite its mass adoption. The dRPC Startup Sponsorship Program understands the intricacies of Web3 innovation, offering valuable resources such as free access to dRPC’s commercial nodes, a promotional platform, and the potential for increased revenue through a referral system. With a commitment to fostering growth in the blockchain space, the program supports startups’ technical needs and enhances their market visibility. dRPC’s mission to empower developers and startups is evident through this sponsorship, removing barriers and enabling a sharper focus on building and scaling innovative Web3 applications.

Engaging Builders

Our approach extended beyond typical online channels such as Twitter to ensure that the dRPC Startup Sponsorship Program resonated with Web3 developers who truly valued our initiative. We aimed to establish a deeper, more personal connection with the ecosystem’s innovators by participating actively in popular events. At EthDenver and EthDam’s hackathons, we engaged directly with the community, spending numerous hours distributing fliers and conversing with hundreds of development talents. Through these conversations, we shared promotional codes, offering attendees the opportunity to test dRPC Premium firsthand. This strategic outreach enabled us to promote our services and to understand and align with the specific needs and ambitions of dedicated Web3 builders, further solidifying our commitment to the growth of the decentralized development space.

Applications

The response to the dRPC Startup Sponsorship Program was outstanding, with a vast and diverse array of applications flooding in from ambitious Web3 developers worldwide. Sifting through these numerous submissions, the selection process was exceptionally challenging as it boiled down to identifying 50 finalists, each demonstrating unique potential and innovation. Ultimately, 24 sponsorships were awarded. The high calibre and variety of projects presented a tough choice for the selectors, reflecting a rich tapestry of creativity and forward-thinking in the blockchain space. Each application showcased deep commitment and groundbreaking ideas, making the final decision a testament to the rigorous standards and vision of the dRPC sponsorship initiative.
