Grants Program

Overview

The grants program was funded with 2M USD in PERP that is allocated to funding protocols building on Perpetual Protocol. This program started in August 2021 and still running to this day. This program covers 2 main items:

Request for Proposals (RFPs): these are items that the core team would like to be built or done but currently doesn’t have the bandwidth for. If you want some ideas on places or items to help with, this is a good place to start!

You can view our RFPs on Questbook: https://questbook.app/profile/?daoId=0x5&chainId=10

Grants: these are all of your weird and wonderful ideas that we would never think of! If you have anything that you believe falls under the grants categories, then reach out to us.
