In a blog post, OpenSea co-founder Devin Finzer said that the company is launching a grant programme to help support developers in the NFT space.

"Our ambition is to foster the scale and growth of the broader NFT ecosystem including raising the profile of emerging creators and investing in the people who shape the NFT space for the better today," wrote Finzer.

He also revealed that former Meta vice president of commerce Shiva Rajaraman will become the company's new vice president of product.
