Announcing Kadena Technical Grants

Kadena has launched Technical Grants, a structured model designed to reward blockchain developers for contributing their talent to the world’s fastest layer-1 PoW network.

Empowered Innovation

The goal of Technical Grants is to accelerate the growth of the Kadena ecosystem by funding software development that provides novel use cases and user-friendly tooling.

It takes a thriving and diverse community to deliver the pipeline of solutions necessary to realize the full potential of this emerging digital economy. We believe Kadena’s hybrid blockchain provides the best framework. If you share this vision, we encourage you to apply for grant funding.


Grant Opportunities

Kadena welcomes all high-quality, open-source applications. While we are receptive to many ideas for funding, priority is given to teams who pursue grants that fall within a defined focus area.

The Technical Grants are focused on funding software development in key categories:

  • DeFi

  • Blockchain interoperability

  • Developer tools

  • Analytics services

  • Wallet development

  • dApps / smart contracts
