Grants Program Overview
The goal of the program is to increase the contributor count and actively promote the growth of the dYdX protocol. While initial grants cannot directly change the dYdX product or core development, Grantees will have the opportunity to impact growth through external tools and non-technical projects (e.g. Analytics dashboards, newsletters, governance etc..).
This contributor growth will lead to improvements across both user experiences and the overall community.
A dYdX Grants Committee came into inception in December 2021, initially controlled by a program lead that hand-selected the other contributors making up the Grants Committee and a group of eight Committee Members that control the multisig.
It has since evolved into a more formal structure with an Enforcer and a set of Trustees with the Grants Committee handling the daily tasks.
