Open-source development is one of the foundations of the IOTA Ecosystem. This concept has also led to an increasing number of projects developed on the IOTA blockchain network. Several of these projects are funded through charitable contributions from the IOTA community members, who participate in the Ecosystem Development Fund. The second cohort of fund grantees, who received a total of $354,000, was unveiled by the Foundation recently. Of these, Untangle Care received the highest funding, which is $234,000.
