Grants Program

Get paid to build applications on mStable or support the Community through our Grants Program.

The mStable Grants Program empowers the community to help grow the mStable ecosystem. Grants are administered by the community-led mStable GrantsDAO, which facilitates the process of providing grants to projects, ideas and events that build on top of mStable.

This page will provide a high-level overview of the Grants Program. Further information can be found in our documentation on Notion.

What Are We Funding?

The mStable GrantsDAO has allocated 100,000 MTA every quarter for funding grants, unless the previous quarter's funds are less than 50% utilized.

As long as you are building something useful for the mStable ecosystem, we welcome you to apply for our developer and community grants.

Software Development Grants

The mStable DAO is looking to mainly fund development efforts from members of the community. More specifically we’re looking to fund the following broad verticals:

  • mUSD / mBTC integrations (mAsset utility)

  • MTA integration into applications (MTA utility)

  • Community tools (explorers, wallets, .info sites, forums, etc.)

Community Building Grants

We are also looking to fund organic and grassroots community initiatives to build and strengthen mStable's community of members and Governors including:

  • Translation and content

  • Marketing campaigns

  • Infographics

  • Community tools and utilities
