Hi Chibuike. Yes you are still eligible - Interledger doesn't have to be the only network used. And yes, you may include both social media and traditional advertising in your budget.

Thanks for the prompt response Erika !

Please one final inquiry .

Should all the details produced from the grant be open source ? Is being open source more favorable?

Thanks a bunch!

Chibuike, our charter declares that at least 50% of the projects we fund must be open source, and we are certainly proponents of open technology. That being said, we recognize that applicants may have valid reasons to have a proprietary license for some or all of their work. The key in your application is to articulate your rationale, and help judges understand your licensing decisions.

Hi Erica

Thanks .

I couldn't get to submit my work even though I finished just before the 7pm UTC Time as stipulated. I was told the opportunity was no longer available .

Sorry you were not able to submit by the deadline. The CFP was open for 9 weeks, and we extended it a week, so we do feel it was open for an appropriate amount of time. There is always a danger of waiting until the last second. We advise all potential applicant to apply a few hours before deadline to deal with any tech issues that may arise. We will have more opportunities in the coming year.
