How can apply for a developer grant?

Modified on Mon, 27 Mar 2023 at 09:09 PM

The general grant program is designed to fund projects covering a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to,

  • Decentralized applications (e.g., gaming, DeFi, NFT, etc)
  • Tools/libs for testing
  • Tools/libs for frontend development
  • Infrastructures (e.g., explorer, status dashboard, node service, etc)
  • Interoperability
  • Wallet integration
  • Enterprise applications
  • Research projects (e.g., tokenomics, governance, privacy, etc).

In general, your project will have better chances to get accepted if:

  1. The subject has been well-studied, proven by a well-presented intro, including background, prior works, and relevant technical bases.
  2. Your team has proven experience with a relevant and solid technical/research background. For development projects, you should provide the GitHub profiles of your team members as part of your application. A list of your previously done projects will be highly recommended and beneficial. For research projects, CVs of all applicants should be attached.
  3. Your application is rich in technical details and well-defined.
  4. For development projects, you can demonstrate that the project will be maintained after completion of the grant, be it through an obvious commitment to the technology from your side, additional funding sources, or an existing business model.
  5. You should point out how your project stands out among competitors (e.g., it implements some technology that does not exist in the ecosystem yet).
  6. A direct contribution to VeChain's technology and/or ecosystem is a plus.

Additionally, it must fulfill the following requirements:

  • We do not award grants for projects that have been the object of a successful token sale. However, we do not limit the project's option to do token sales in the future.
  • Lastly, we do not fund projects that actively encourage gambling, illicit trade, money laundering, or criminal activities in general.
