Meter Developer Grant Program

April 19, 2021

Calling all dApp developers: The Meter Development Grant Program is here!

Meter Grants are a way for the platform to gain adoption by establishing a solid foundation of apps that use the protocol. With more than $10 million allocated for several rounds of grants, we are looking forward to helping developers put the “pedal to the metal” when it comes to having a great dApp idea that only needs some financial support to really get going. 

Keep in mind is that, even though Meter will be helping support the development of your dApp, it will still be your app that you will be able to reap the benefits and profits from; we just want to help you get off the ground. What’s more, we are also open to having developers port existing Ethereum apps over to Meter, too. 

Another benefit of having your project accepted into the Meter Development Grant Program is that Meter will help market your dApp after completing all 6 milestones. This includes but is not limited to:

  1. Tweeting from the Meter twitter account
  2. Promoting it in the Meter telegram
  3. Posting blog posts about your dApp to the Meter blog
  4. Offering assistance for project IDOs

Roadmap for Round 1:

We currently have the equivalent of $100,000 set aside for round 1 of app development. We do not have a set amount we want to give any particular app, and will determine exact amounts on an app-by-app basis. 

There are two different payment structures available:

  1. A one-time payment
  2. Payments received upon completion of each individual milestone

Submit your proposal

  1. Your name
  2. Email address
  3. Phone number
  4. Working name of your app
  5. The purpose of your app
  6. Describe your development progress
  7. Your various social media & developer accounts
  8. Your projected costs
  9. For you to attach any additional info that you think might be helpful – such as a white paper, business plan, designs, etc. The more information you can provide, the better

Please fill out this form to get started with your proposal.  Our team will be reviewing submissions on an on-going basis until we feel we have a good group of apps in development. 

After the team has decided to move forward with your proposal and all the details are hashed out, we have laid out these milestones for the first round of the grant:

  • Milestone 1: Deploy your app on the testnet
  • Milestone 2: Demo the app and AMA for the Meter community
  • Milestone 3: Provide detailed documentation and/or an in-depth blog post
  • Milestone 4: Deploy your app on the Meter mainnet
  • Milestone 5: Gather user feedback from the Meter community
  • Milestone 6: Marketing for increased usage and user growth

Payment structure

Both payment structures – one-time payments and milestone-based payments – will be subject to the approval of a 3-member panel from the Meter community. For the one-time payment, they will review the work at the end to ensure the agreed upon work has been completed. For the weekly payments, the panel will review the progress towards that week’s milestone and upon approval from the panel, Meter will provide the agreed upon payment for that week.

Other things of note

  • After being accepted into the Developer Grant Program, we will want to keep our community informed as to the progress of development. With that in mind, expect certain details of the project to be public – such as the name of your app, the website, the amount of funding it is receiving from Meter, etc. 
  • For tax and legal purposes, we will need to KYC. This will be done by privately providing the Meter team an image of your driver’s license or passport.
