Namesdao Bounties and Grants

Namesdao Chia Innovation Grants

Namesdao Chia Innovation Grants

  • Quick decisions; little/no paperwork

  • Supporting projects like:

– fully open-source wallet apps

– integrations & experiments w/ Namesdao .xch names

– experiments using NAME tokens

– crazy ideas

Grant recipients may sell the tokens, or use the tokens to register names, e.g. using our namesdao-cli command line tool, or just hold them, etc.

The grants serve as a recognition of efforts achieved, and provide some modest funding as well.

To apply for an Innovation Grant, or for further information or to answer any questions contact via Keybase @rightsexyorc or via Twitter @BenAtreidesVing.
