Amplitude Grant Program
Guidelines and Opportunities
Amplitude is a canary network of its sister blockchain, Pendulum. It will act as a testing ground and new frontier for developing applications and network parameters for Pendulum. Unlike a traditional testnet, users can interact on the Amplitude chain with real financial consequences. We’re expecting lots of novel concepts to be trialed on Amplitude, giving rise to many exciting opportunities for anyone using the chain.
Projects we're looking to fund
We give out grants to projects that translate any popular EVM protocol & service to WebAssembly (”Wasm”) for the Substrate-based Amplitude parachain.
EVM → Wasm Translations
- Lending dApps → Aave, Compound Finance, Geist Finance
- AMMs → SushiSwap, QuickSwap, Curve, Balancer
- Yield Aggregators → Yearn, Beefy, Harvest Finance
- CDP (Collateralised Debt Position) → Mai Finance, Maker DAO, mStable, Abracadabra
- Derivatives → Synthetix, Perpetual Protocol, Jarvis Network
- Other Solidity/EVM translations are also very welcome!
Innovative dApps & Services
For example (but not limited to):
- Bridges → trust-minimized bridges to networks with stable tokens
- Trustless fiat price oracle → services that remove the oracle as a single-point-of-trust
- Transaction privacy → optional transactional privacy features
- Tooling for Wasm smart contracts → something like the Truffle Suite for Wasm
- Eligibility → Eligibility Individuals, universities, companies, etc. Open to all!
- Requirements → All code must be open source and available on Github. Code should either be written in WebAssembly (”Wasm”) or compiled to Wasm (see e.g. Solang here) and can be implemented either as a pallet or as a smart contract.
- Tech → Wasm/Substrate
- Payout → USDC + $AMPE
Submit the grant application below. You can keep it short and simple at this stage. Share anything that you find relevant
Your proposal will be reviewed by the Pendulum team.
Once a decision is made, we will get back to you with the status of your application and next steps
