The mission of the Foundation is to support the development, growth, and stability of the Render Network. The roadmap is a community led document detailing the current focus of the community.
The Roadmap is a Community Effort

Migrate from Discord to Discourse
For the purpose of better community participation we will move to Discourse from Discord for our RNP process.
Administer 2023 Grant Cohort
The 2023 Grant Cohort was awarded in November.
Upgrade RNDR -> RENDER
Our community voted in RNP001 to move from Ethereum to Solana. RNDR is the ERC20 token, and RENDER is the Solana SPL token.
Implement BME Model
The highly anticipated Burn and Mint Equilibrium Model will be launched within weeks of the Breakpoint conference on November 2, 2023. This will take place on RENDER.
