This is a public repository to help coordinate our collaboration efforts with teams working in the Web 3 ecosystem. In order to build a better web, the Web3 Foundation will help to coordinate the efforts of teams working towards this common goal. The coordination of efforts will include helping to connect teams, cross-promote the products and protocols, as well as provide strategic grants.
Our view is that the Polkadot platform will play a pivotal role in the Web 3 ecosystem. To get a better idea of how we think about the ecosystem, we invite you to look at our proposed Web 3 tech stack.

How this repo will be used
In this repository, we will facilitate collaboration via issue tracking. Essentially, the problems and ideas which we believe to be important will appear on the issues page. It is also possible for project teams to suggest new ideas: to do so simply create a new issue.
Polkadot ecosystem issues
Here are some of the important issue areas that we would love for the community to collaborate with us on.
- Build core technology.
- Test core technology.
- Create general ecosystem components.
More information on development collaboration can be found in the development collaboration document: development doc
If you want to test our software then there aren't really any requirements, just download and have fun. Obviously, we would greatly appreciate constructive feedback and any heads up on bugs that you might find.

Who we are looking for
The ideal candidates are people who can work in a self-directed manner and are able to manage their own time and resources in order to hit the necessary targets. For meetups, it is possible to do this single-handedly although for larger coding projects we expect teams of multiple members will be typical.
The Web3 Foundation is here to provide guidance and cross-team coordination, and in some cases we will be able to provide funding too.
If these issues are of interest to you then please comment on an open issue, or create a new issue, and provide the relevant information (refer to the submission process guidelines).
Submission process guidelines
