The Oasis Grants Program

Receive up to $50K for your next project on the Oasis Network

Apply Now

The $1.5 million ROSE Bloom Grants Program will help you kickstart the development of your projects in a range of key focus areas and support privacy-enabled DeFi and data tokenization. Each proposal is eligible to receive up to $50,000 USD in ROSE tokens.

Key Focus Areas

Currently, the ROSE Bloom Grants program offers grants for the following development environments:

  • Oasis Labs' Parcel SDK

    A privacy-first data governance SDK built by Oasis Labs to isolate and protect your most sensitive data without sacrificing the ability to use it.

  • Second State’s Oasis Ethereum ParaTime

    An Ethereum backward compatible ParaTime with support for the entire Solidity toolkit. The ParaTime is nearly identical to Ethereum, but has better performance and 99% lower gas fees than Ethereum.

  • ParaTime SDK Development

    ParaTimes are parallel computation environments that support smart contract execution on the Oasis Network. They can be built and run by anyone, and are highly customizable.

Build an NFT App on the Oasis-Eth Paratime

For this specific grant category, we’re looking for developers who want to build new NFT applications on the Oasis Ethereum ParaTime. You can port an existing NFT-related Solidity smart contract from Ethereum or create a brand new NFT-related Solidity smart contract to be launched on the Oasis Network.

You can still apply and we will review your submission, we are open to new ideas.

How do I apply for a grant?

Applying for a grant is easy. Just fill out the application form the relevant information we are requesting, and we’ll notify you via email regarding the status of your application. The more specific and clear you are in your application, the better our team will be able to understand your project proposal.

Who is eligible to apply for a grant?

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.

How much money can I receive for my project?

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.

What do you require for my project to get approved to receive a grant?

The Oasis Foundation team will assess your project proposal based on the following scoring categories:

  • Strength of the team

    Based on past projects, resume, GitHub, etc.
    1 (Very Weak) to 5 points (Very Strong)

  • Written quality of project proposal

    Based on details described, content, etc.
    1 (Very Low Quality) to 5 points (Very High Quality)

  • Tech & product quality of project

    Based on technical implementation details and product vision, design overview, etc.
    1 (Very Low Quality) to 5 points (Very High Quality)

  • Relevance to the success of the network

    Based on whether this is a product that could help us grow, an app that is in-demand among our community members, etc.
    1 (Not very relevant at all) to 5 points (Very Relevant)

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. We’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.

We 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 we agreed upon.

Please note that we 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.

What happens after I apply for a grant?

Grant applications will be reviewed on an ongoing, rolling basis. In general, the application process will follow the timeline below:

  • Apply for a grant via our application form.

  • Allow 1 to 2 weeks for the Oasis team to do a preliminary review of your application.

  • If your project idea looks promising, the Oasis team will post your project overview on the Oasis GitHub discussion board and notify you via email (applicants that are turned down at this preliminary stage will also be notified). This will allow the community to share feedback on your project proposal, ask questions, and offer you suggestions.

  • Allow 1 to 2 weeks after your project gets posted on the Oasis GitHub discussion board and receives community feedback for the Oasis team to mark your project as ACCEPTED or TURNED DOWN. We will also notify you if your application is approved or turned down at this stage via email.

  • If your grant application is accepted, the Oasis team will email you with next steps, including information about the KYC process.
    The Oasis team will work closely with you to finalize the terms of your grant, and you can begin working on your project!

How long will it take to hear back about my application?

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.
