I was going to announce it a bit later and more properly, but Mastodon received a $70k grant from Samsung NEXT through OpenCollective. I intend to make it available to those who contribute to the project, and have already notified some of the most regular contributors. The way OpenCollective works is that anyone can submit an expense and all transactions are listed transparently. It also holds the money.

As for myself, I intend to continue using Patreon for my own wage/costs.


@Gargron thats good to hear! But I can't help but wonder why 🤔

@geotechland If I understand it correctly, the sum is peanuts for such a big company and investing in promising tech gives them a good name.
