Bluzelle is excited to launch first Developer Grant Program. Team has allocated $500,000 to support innovative use cases that can benefit from Bluzelle’s unique decentralized database. They are now accepting the first wave of applications that will focus largely on censorship-resistant applications.
Tech companies are increasingly censoring communities and punishing wrongthink. The latest episode involved hedge fund-backed Discord, which banned a Reddit group (Wall Street Bets) that was behind the spike in GameStop’s share price. The closure of a self-moderated board, with its own policies and guidelines, sets a troubling precedent. The possibility that hedge funds planted people within the Wallstreetbets Discord in order to cause its shutdown - allegedly for “hate speech” - cannot be dismissed.
The ambition of blockchain technologies, and decentralized infrastructure products such as Bluzelle, is to increase transparency, enhance security and prevent censorship. To create products that live in perpetuity and cannot be shut down. Members of society are entirely capable of determining what they like and dislike, and do not need third parties to make decisions for them. Building censorship-resistant products empowers individuals to wrest back control from increasingly authoritarian technocrats.
With BluzelleDB, developers can be confident that their product cannot be shut down by any party — including Bluzelle itself.
The Bluzelle ecosystem currently comprises 1,889 developers on Discord, and the platform has partnered with 34 blockchain entities including Matic, Polkadot, and Elrond. Bluzelle also has over 10 community projects under its umbrella. The Bluzelle mainnet is scheduled to go live on February 3.
The Bluzelle Developer Grant Program is created to support community members who would like to bring their creative visions to life through Bluzelle. Targeting blockchain and software developers, this program focuses on innovative use cases that will benefit from Bluzelle’s unique decentralized database. Participants are encouraged to propose their new ideas or work on our list of inspirations.

The general grant procedure is expected as follow:
Powered by a Byzantine fault-tolerant cluster of blockchains customized specifically for database operations, Bluzelle is a decentralized database for Web3. Its advanced data delivery network promises to protect businesses from data breaches, network failures and performance troubles. Bluzelle effectively serves as an “Airbnb of databases,” with developers paying for storage space and read/write access to the decentralized database. Secure, tamper-proof, censorship-proof, and highly scalable, Bluzelle is in the process of developing data feeds and oracles for the next phase of its evolution to help bring about a faster and more secure internet.
