Having been an operator for one of the leading parachains in the Polkadot ecosystem, has really steepened my learning of what really goes on underneath the hood at the blockchain level and the protocol/dApp layer. At my role as Director of Ecosystem Development, I was tasked with bringing in developers to deploy on our EVM+ and increase adoption of our DeFi primitives such as our over-collateralized stablecoin across different Polkadot parachains/dApps. Some of the tools that we leveraged was our $250M Ecosystem fund and our Grants program to support early stage projects either building on Polkadot with an aUSD use case or deploying open source software directly on Acala.
