Grants

Waves Grants is a grant program introduced by the WA for individual blockchain developers, teams and start-ups willing and able to implement ideas that serve the Waves ecosystem’s interests.

We encourage developers to create solutions for specific use cases. However, ideas related to other aspects of blockchain are also welcome

Funding

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.

DAO driven

The grant issue and awarding procedures are performed via DAO. Individual developers and teams alike can take part in the grant program. The same developer or team can apply for an unlimited number of tasks but no more than one at a time.

For more details, read Waves Grant Policy.
