projects to apply
Prime areas of market growths are Play-to-Earn games, musician fan clubs, investment DAOs, portfolio dashboards, and event and collectible curators.
For these projects already live on other chains' Mainnet, Harmony's Port Grant can boost their reach of users and engagement. As grants, we give $50K for porting to our Mainnet and another $25K for forming a DAO on our platform. For any project, a DAO ensures community participation, product sustainability, and open governance.
We target the top 25% projects across chains with the most tractions and highest potential:
- DeFi apps should have at least $20M total locked value or 20% sustained yields
- NFT mints or games 10K daily active users
- DAO $100K payouts.
Highly vibrant and engaged communities usually have social metrics of:
- 50K Twitter followers
- 10K Discord members
- 5000 active wallets
- 1000 Telegram daily online
We recommend that all code bases, development materials and production assets associated with your proposal to be fully open, preferrably with MIT or BSD licences; early feedback form our community and our DAOs (e.g. ONEcommunityDAO, ONEdeveloperDAO, ONEincubatorDAO, etc) after posting the proposal and weekly updates must on sent on forum; and, all server deploys or mobile apps must be easily clonable. We ask for 3-month exclusive campaigns with Harmony before more porting with other chains. We also offer follow-on investments – see Investments below.
who can apply
Recipients of each grant for porting must have achieved product-market fit. Harmony helps scale these thriving projects via porting to our Mainnet. We recommend $50-250K each over 4-8 weeks, on projects already with active 10K users, and engaging their teams in public forums.
We recommend a 5-of-9 multisig account on Gnosis Safe with 3 governors from the project team, 3 governors from the project community, and 3 governors from Harmony DAOs – namely, ONEcommunityDAO, ONEdeveloperDAO, ONEincubatorDAO.
how to apply
All funding proposals are sent in via Harmony's public forum! Just like how blockchains are transparent, so are our proposals. Click on the embedded link in the description to get started immediately.
Our goal is to respond with first contact within 2 working days. We'll interact with you through the thread on the forum post where you've submitted your proposal. Keep an eye out on your email mailbox, by default you should receive emails on threads that you're on (and don't turn that off!)
about the grant program
The ultimate goal is to grow the adoption of the Harmony protocol to be the platform of choice when building real-world solutions that are secure, scalable, and affordable to use. This naturally comes with increased utility and adoption of the protocol, achieving the mission of Harmony delivered to the 10 billion people.
