About the program
This program is designed to accelerate our vision of creating an entirely private and totally personal experience for everyone on the web. Aleo utilizes a technology called zero-knowledge cryptography to enable a new paradigm known as decentralized private compute, or zkCloud. From our new layer-1 blockchain which immutably stores programs and data, to a new domain-specific language for writing zero-knowledge powered apps, to our development studio and online REPL, we provide a complete set of tools for the developer who wants to build the next-gen web.
Who can apply
In order to achieve this vision we will be providing community members with incentivized opportunities to make impactful contributions to the Aleo open-source ecosystem.
Whether you're a seasoned developer looking to build an application on Aleo, a designer who wants to build interactive tutorials for our products, or simply a web privacy advocate who would love to help create marketing materials, there is a grant opportunity for you. Grant recipients are not only contributors to our ecosystem, but owners who we hope continue to play a role in our community beyond the scope of the original grant.
For this initial program Aleo has committed $1M in total funding from its treasury.
This funding will be divided across four grant categories, defined by size of contribution
To apply for a grant you must complete and submit an Aleo Grants Program Application.
All applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and assessed weekly by our review committee. If you are selected you will be contacted by Aleo's grants program manager to discuss payment options and next steps. Currently, we are handling grant payments in the form of USD stablecoin, Bitcoin, and Zcash. For more specific details relating to the application process, please read through the application form.
The review committee is comprised of experts across the Aleo team who come from a wide variety of backgrounds. They will review and comment on all applications that are submitted.
