Disclaimer: The grant program serves as an extension of STIP. Its main goal is to encourage direct on-chain activity to drive growth. The purpose is to support initiatives that actively contribute to the project’s ecosystem. It focuses on boosting on-chain engagement instead of using funds for employee salaries. This strategy aims to make the grants have a bigger impact by directly supporting initiatives that improve the project’s on-chain activity and contribute to its long-term sustainability.
