This exciting program has been launched to support developers and innovators building on the powerful Casper public blockchain worldwide. The multi-year grant program will provide funding to projects building apps to support infrastructure, end-user applications, and research innovation on the Casper blockchain.

In line with the program's purpose, one of the key criteria in the selection process will be the positive impact projects will have on the wider Casper community and the Casper ecosystem in general. The quality of the submission, technical or academic strength of the proposal, opportunity for growth, experience level and commitment as well as the track record of the team submitting the projects will also be taken into consideration during the selection process.

In support of this grant program, the Casper Association has also kicked off the creation of a new and innovative Casper Developer Portal. The Portal is being built to support Casper developers and innovators as they seek to educate themselves on the tools and code that will best hel them achieve their goals. The new Casper Developer Portal will be live in Q1 2023.
