The ROSE Bloom Grants Program is an entirely new grants program designed to accelerate the growth of the Oasis Network and build valuable new ecosystem tools. Team are excited to introduce a fully revamped grants program and the best way to receive funding for your project on the Oasis Network. Designed to help foster the growth of the Oasis ecosystem, the ROSE Bloom Grants program will help kickstart the development of projects in a range of key focus areas.
The Bloom program is building on the success of the original grants and DevAccelerator program to ensure that the community has the resources needed to push the Oasis Network to new limits and strengthen its ability to support privacy-enabled DeFi and data tokenization.
Support will take two main forms: bounties for specific projects that the Foundation sees as critical for the progress of the Oasis Network and more open-ended grants for new project ideas.
If you are curious to learn about what grants have already been considered and approved, check out Github discussion threads for each project category. In these project-specific category threads, grant recipients will share updates on their projects and engage with questions and feedback from the community. You can also see what grant proposals were not approved, share new grant ideas, and comment on existing projects.
Eligibility to get approved for a grant is subject to KYC and your country of residence's accredited investor verification guidelines, as outlined in the official program rules.
Developers who are U.S. citizens or residents and who are not accredited investors may not be eligible to receive ROSE Bloom Grants. The grants are not and will not be offered or sold, directly or indirectly, to any person who is a resident, organized, or located in any country or territory subject to OFAC comprehensive sanctions programs from time to time, including Cuba, Crimea region of Ukraine, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Iran, Syria, any person found on the OFAC Specially Designated Nationals, Blocked Persons List, any other consolidated prohibited persons list as determined by any applicable governmental authority, or any persons who are organized in, located in, or residents of New York State.
Each proposal will be eligible to receive anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000 USD given out in ROSE tokens. Please specify the grant amount you are requesting in your application. The grant amount requested should match the scope of work for each project.
The Oasis Foundation team will assess your project proposal based on the following scoring categories:
Community interest and excitement generated will be a factor considered in the selection process, as an input into the “Relevance to the success of the network” scoring category. Team’ll post project overviews on the Oasis GitHub discussion board to allow Oasis community members to share feedback, ask questions, and offer suggestions for each project.
Team also require you to provide specific milestones for assessing the progress of your project. Milestones should be decided based on the type of project you are developing and the scope of work for the project. In general, the types of things you can list as project milestones include specific development steps (e.g. initial deployment, debugging, obtaining first user, etc.), specific components of the application (e.g. sign-in flow, front-end user interface, database config, etc.), as well as key success metrics (e.g. app installs, number of transactions, number of users, etc.).
Depending on the size of your grant, the Oasis Foundation may disburse your grant in separate parts. Smaller grants may be disbursed in a single transaction. Larger grants may be disbursed in separate transactions at separate times, based on evidence of your continued progress building your project and meeting the milestones team agreed upon.
Please note that team expect a commitment of at least around 3 months, including project development, launch, maintenance, etc. If you want to continue working on your project or developing extensions for it beyond this initial commitment, you can apply for additional grants in the future to fund your continued work.
Grant applications will be reviewed on an ongoing, rolling basis. In general, the application process will follow the timeline below:
