The organization said it has allocated $19 million for the next 12 months to "build tomorrow's Ethereum."

That is to say, this includes the ambitious expansion plan Ethereum 2.0, the “two-tier” expansion project, such as Plasma, and other research and development projects.

An additional $8 million will be used to support the current Ethereum main network program, such as the Ethereum 1x, over the next 12 months.

“Ethereum is already in the midst of a real-world operation, providing protection for billions of dollars in assets and providing the underlying foundation for hundreds of real-time applications. We believe it is vital to continue to support these efforts to ensure 'Ethereum 1.0’ Continue to be the world's leading smart contract platform."

The last $3 million will be dedicated to the growth and awareness of developers. As stated in the article, the money will be used for: developer education and induction training, organizing the annual Ethereum conference Devcon, supporting "regional Ethereum community organizations" and so on.

The Ethereum Foundation holds a total of approximately 0.6% of ETH's share, equivalent to approximately $160 million, as well as some cash reserves. As described in today's blog post, these resources “will decrease over time” and encourage third-party participants like MolochDAO, a project that funds Ethereum development, to support the development of the Ethereum ecosystem. The aspect plays a greater role.

“This effort allows us to make better use of existing resources and help us build a sustainable path to fund important projects in the future,” wrote the blog post in detail.
