50 million $STRK allocated to initiative
According to the Starknet Foundation, the ECMP is for Starknet believers. It’s meant to recognise the vital role played by early contributors via a reward program using the native Starknet token $STRK.
The foundation has thus earmarked 50 million ion of $STRK for this program.
Per the announcement, the initiative will have phase one focus on individual contributors to technical discourse, key projects, event organisers and regular publishers of Starknet branded content. A committee will consider feedback after the first phase and decide on whether to embark on a second phase that would come with additional criteria.
Eligible individuals have between October 30 and November 23, 2023 to submit their applications. The committee is expected to deliver its decision on December 29, 2023. $STRK tokens are expected to be live traded as from April next year.
