Today, we are delighted to announce a $25,000 sponsorship through the Gemini Opportunity Fund to support the ongoing development of open-source blockchain explorer Mempool.space.

Mempool.space provides the crypto community with seamless visibility into the bitcoin blockchain without ads, altcoins, or third-party trackers, and we are privileged to be the project’s first enterprise sponsor. The sponsorship will enable project maintainers @wiz and @softsimon to continue their work, enhance Mempool.space’s ability to collaborate with other projects, and ensure the site remains as accessible as possible. Our sponsorship was transferred to Mempool.space in BTC and confirmed in block 676921.

To ensure the bitcoin community remains vibrant, the crypto industry must step up and support a range of community projects, built by and for the community. We are proud to help Wiz and Softsimon maintain Mempool.space and support their mission to bolster the bitcoin ecosystem more broadly.

The Gemini Opportunity Fund has already donated $450,000 towards Bitcoin core development since its launch in December 2020, and it will continue to support the Bitcoin Network and developer community going forward. We also recently announced our Gemini Frontier Fund, a strategic venture fund focused on investing in early-stage crypto projects and startups.

Our donations to dynamic projects and developers within the Bitcoin ecosystem, and to the larger crypto industry, directly complement our mission to empower individuals through crypto and provide our customers with a simple, reliable, and secure way to engage with the magical crypto frontier.

Onward and Upward!

Team Gemini
