We’re excited to announce our pioneering set of Unlock Token Grantees!  We’re looking forward to seeing how they apply Unlock in new ways. You can learn more about the grant program here.

What is the Unlock Token Grant Program?

The Unlock Token Grant Program is all about increasing the amount of people building with Unlock, by encouraging and supporting developers that create plugins, processes and documentation that make it easier for people to use Unlock.

What are we looking for?

Our five criteria are as follows:

  • Impact - could this impact a lot of users?

  • Clarity - Does the project include user experience, aesthetics and anything else that makes the solution clear, accessible and easy to use once implemented?

  • Feasibility - is this a reasonable implementation?

  • Team - Does the team have the skills to make this happen?

  • Maturity - is this a brand new startup or a launched system with revenue?

Decentraland Unlock Integration

  • SDK Integration. Rewriting Unlock-js functionality to utilise the Decentraland libraries, TypeScript and native UI, so developers can easily display lock information, purchase locks, and trigger events on transaction confimations.
  • Smart Item. Bundle the SDK integration into a smart item, so creators can utilise the Decentraland drag and drop Maker mode, allowing non-developers to easily deploy locks to their virtual land.
  • Unlock HQ. A fully realised virtual headquarters, where players can meet avatars of the team, read about the protocol, watch videos, test the protocol in realtime, and find out more info on integrating it into their own experiences.

Learn more about our Token Grant Program!

Part of supporting unlock and being part of the community is building token grants to increase usage of Unlock!

If you have a project in mind and would like to submit a grant application, please do!

We review all applications on a monthly basis. You’ll get a notification when your grant is under review and whether it has been accepted or rejected.

Each grantee will get a token grant that vests monthly starting 12 months from the start of the grant period. Once the project is completed, the vested funds will be delivered by smart contract, and the rest of the funds will be delivered each month until the end of the grant period.

Congratulations to all of the grantees, and thanks again for supporting Unlock!
