Earn a Grant for Software That Benefits the Community
The Moonbeam Foundation is committed to providing grants and bounties for initiatives that support the greater community. The categories and grant awards will vary depending on the project and its overall value to the network, the other projects in the ecosystem, and even the platform itself. Projects could include:
- Key functionality for DeFi applications e.g., oracles, DEXs
- Developer tools, services, and integrations
- Bridges to Ethereum or other chains that connect directly to Moonbeam
- User interfaces for displaying chain data and analysis e.g., block explorers
Help Support Moonbeam's Network Infrastructure
As a parachain, Moonbeam relies on node operators (known as collators) to create and submit blocks to the Polkadot Relay Chain. Though these collators are not responsible for the security of the network, they will ensure the liveness of the network and which means that consistency and uptime are of utmost importance.
If you’re interested in learning more about the requirements for collators or would like to have an exploratory conversation, please contact us directly.
Create or Re-deploy Solidity DApps to Moonbeam
Solidity-based projects have rapidly adopted Moonbeam as the “go to” destination for multi-chain expansion to Polkadot. Since it’s so easy to deploy both new and existing smart contracts to the platform, a number of projects from across the cryptoverse have begun to congregate on Moonbeam — from DeFi-enabling technologies like oracles to DApps whose use cases have become to costly on alternate networks.
