Funding and Research Program.
MiniSwap Funding and Research Program aims to recognise and support world-class academic projects pursuing cutting-edge research in areas of mutual interest. We put our focus on university faculty. We are also happy to consider proposals from non-established early career faculty (including postdocs) and PhD students.
Standard R&D program
Each funding support is up to $20,000 USD. We are currently interested in the topics associated to:
- Decentralised applications (such as lending, derivatives, options, etc.);
- Market makers and price oracles;
- Cross-ledger communications.
Outstanding proposals with well justified costing and research impact can be negotiated on a case by case basis. There is no limitation on the research topic or the total amount of funding support.
Submit your application to Lab@MiniSwap.org. The subject should be formatted to “[Type of funding] Institution-Lead CI”. For example, Satoshi Nakamoto from Bitcoin University (BTCU) applying for a standard R&D program should use the subject of [Standard]-BTCU- Satoshi Nakamoto.
We will discuss all funding proposals at the first week of each month. We may contact you if there are parts of your proposal that needs further clarification.
If your proposal is successful, then we will follow up with you through email.
