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.

Exceptional Program

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 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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3
