Algorand Foundation and the community launch the ALGO Grant Program for 250 million tokens. This multi-year grant program aims to finance the development of applications, tools and infrastructure, research, education and public promotion efforts. The grant program is divided into four categories: - Research contributing to the development; - Rewards for developers; - Grants for projects to create and deploy applications; - Contribution to community and education.
For the average user and as the most accessible program, we recommend participating in the fourth type of grants. Choose the activities that are suitable for you described below and perform them:
Organize an Event : Earn 1,000 Algos
One of the best ways to spread the word is to host an event! From developer workshops, to broader meetups about Algorand and/or hackathons, all gatherings are a great way for more people to join the Algorand ecosystem. Every submission will be reviewed by the Algorand Foundation for approval, and should include an email list of attendees, pictures from the event so it can be shared on our social channels, and a list of Algorand Wallets newly created. Check out upcoming events: https://community.algorand.org/events/#/list
New Wallet Created: Earn 100 Algos
If your meetup attendees download the Algorand Wallet as part of your session, you will earn 100 Algos per wallet, up to a maximum of 10 wallets per meetup. There are specific Terms and Conditions associated with new wallet rewards.
