Fueling the future

$185 million Ignition Fund

Kava Labs has allocated $185 million to finance the first phase of development on the ecosystem, with two more phases planned.

The $185 million Ignition Fund is targeted at the accelerated onboarding of carefully vetted projects to the Kava Ecosystem. This will rapidly expand the available services on the platform, all of which will deliver the same quality and security that users have come to expect from Kava.
