Engaging community members to contribute to the Filecoin protocol, project and ecosystem.Learn More
To date, the Filecoin project has focused primarily on research, specification and implementation of a decentralized storage network protocol. Throughout this process we have been fortunate to work with incredible community members and contributors. Some are already building tools on the budding network in active development.
We’re looking to fund talented and eager teams that want to work with us to build a more robust, efficient, and decentralized web.
All grants begin with a proposal. We currently have 3 categories of grants.
Next Step Microgrants are available to support taking the Next Step after building an initial prototype with FilecoinApply for a Microgrant
If you’re interested in building something great that isn’t covered by any open RFPs, submit a proposal to our open category. Full proposal instructions can be found at the link below.Submit a Proposal
Proposal templates can be found on our GitHub site. Generally, all projects must meet the following requirements:
• All projects must be open-sourced.
• All projects must be dual-licensed under MIT and APACHE2 licenses.
• All teams must be self-managed.
Once you submit a proposal, a member of the Dev Grants team will review it on GitHub and either approve, reject, or request changes on your proposal. If your grant is approved, congratulations! We’ll connect with all grant winners to finalize legal and financial details, funding milestones, and timeframe.
Grants are issued in quarterly waves.
