The xGrant Program is designed to provide financial support, mentorship, and resources to innovative teams and projects to help them reach their full potential and make a significant impact in the industry.
The xGrant Program is open to developers and founders, regardless of their project’s stage of development. The xGrant can be used to cover a wide range of expenses, including software development, marketing, team expenses, and more.
By providing financial support and resources, Wormhole is committed to helping developers and founders overcome the challenges they face and take their projects to the next level.
Get a pre-determined, limited-scope feature or tool built out.
Integrate your project with Wormhole in a novel way.
Go big or go home. Build a moonshot idea that acts as a flywheel for user adoption.
Push the boundaries of what’s possible for interoperability.
Multi-chain native-to-native token swap using existing DEXes. Using liquidity of native vs USDC (i.e. the USDC highway), one can swap from native A on chain A to native B on chain B.
Create a ledger plugin built to work with Portal Bridge for Ethereum smart contracts. A user, Jim, should be able to bridge assets through Portal Bridge and see the bridge transfer details on their ledger device.
Create a name service built upon Wormhole, similar to Token Attestation model. A user, Bob, should be able to pick a “Registration Chain” where they write an Identity Record. This IR can be attested to any other chains.
At Wormhole, we strongly believe that developing cross-chain is how builders can provide a better experience for users, and we are determined to help others achieve this goal. This is why we launched the xGrant Program — to aid talented developers and founders in increasing their cross-chain expertise and taking their projects to the next level.Apply for an xGrant today
Our average grant size range is based on the complexity and necessary resourcing. Larger funding requests will require more evaluation and due diligence — hence the longer decision time.
Announcements about receiving an xGrant can only be made once the 1st milestone is accepted. Teams shouldn't seek to cover 100% of their funding via the Wormhole xGrant Program.
Acceptance into the xGrant program is up to the review and approval of the Wormhole Foundation.
