The Community Fund is a resource for developers and entrepreneurs to build projects aligned with the Streamr vision for real-time data economies.
Community admins manage a pool of 2,000,000 DATA tokens to support new Data Unions or project that uses the Streamr p2p Network, Marketplace, or other parts of the tech stack.
Examples of successfully funded projects include the Swash app and MyDiem.
Here’s how it works:
Stage 1: Post your proposal. Tell us about your project, its aims and the problem it solves, what needs to be built, the resources needed, and your background. This can be a few pages long or a few minutes of video, if you prefer. The Streamr team and admins will then offer some feedback and questions.
Information to include:
- Your professional background and motivations (developer, student, app owner)
- Any links to previous work
- An overview of your project and its aims
- Key milestones and implementation details (if your idea is a WIP these do not need to be well defined)
- The resources and support your require
Stage 2: If we like the proposal, the fund will commission you $500 to write a first draft of a whitepaper (if appropriate). The whitepaper will set out a detailed overview of the project and its aims as well as the delivery milestones, development and design feasibility, roadmap, team, and requirements.
Stage 3: The Streamr team, community admins, and Streamr advisory board (if it relates to Data Unions) will then review the whitepaper and offer another a round of feedback, questions, and decide on collaboration terms and requirements.
Stage 4: The whitepaper is finalised based on the feedback and a vote is taken by the Community Fund admins on whether to award the funding.
Stage 5: The project is undertaken and funded in part upfront and on the successful delivery of each milestone.
The Streamr team and advisory board may be able to provide mentorship and assistance but this will vary from project to project.
