Grant or
VC funding

The primary difference between a grant and venture capital funding is whether or not it includes an equity stake in the project. TONcoin.Fund receives equity/tokens in exchange for an investment in your project.

Grants are awarded by the Ton Society for a  critical piece of infrastructure for TON and projects contributing to the public good, typically built on open-source code. For further information on Grants, please visit the TON Society.
