Waves Grant Policy


The amount of funding is determined on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the complexity of technical requirements, specifics of a suggested solution, needs of the developer / team, the scale and importance of the project for Waves and other criteria.

All payments are made in WAVES. The payment process is determined individually and depends on the project implementation schedule.
