Grant approvals and governance are solely by members of Harmony Community, Harmony Angels, elected validators, Pangaea Captains and Harmonauts (engineering and business team) — see the full list here. The main acceptance criteria are active users with high 7-day retention, bringing assets, transactions and volume to Harmony Mainnet.
Your grant is a 6-week engagement with 7 equal payments. After all 6 designated governors unanimously approve your weekly milestones (see Example Grant below), another installment is made before that Sunday 9pm PST. If you lapse on any milestones by 4 weeks, your grant and future payments are forfeited.
Below explains the framework for grant application and agreement:
Strategic focus with examples of high priorities:
We measure the following metric targets per rolling 7-day period for fast iteration:
Grants will be 6-weeks with these typical milestones:
Use open source license, preferably: Apache License 2.0, MIT / BSD 3-clause or 2-clause license, GNU (Lesser) General Public License, Mozilla Public License 2.0.
Artifacts. Link your site, blog and code. Provide a docker image for setup or server launch. Follow branding guidelines.
Milestones. Tweet out the weekly milestone and seek unanimous approvalsfrom your 5 designated governors.
Funding. After each milestone, we will transfer an installment of grant payment with the link to the transaction.
Tax and Legal. For KYC/AML and accounting purposes, send to Harmony in private your driver license (or equivalent identification), phone number and home address. For calculating the amount of ONE tokens as payment in USD, Harmony uses the 24-hour volume-weighted average price using the Binance API (“weightedAvgPrice”) around the time of transfer.
