How can we support early blockchain startup projects to reach Cardano testnet or MVP readiness?
Use cases deliver adoption and real world utility of Cardano to a global base of users and customers. Use cases can be in the nature of applications, products, and new services that lay the foundations for innovative business ideas to flourish on Cardano.
The Cardano Use Cases: Solution category is aimed towards projects seeking to develop and test the technical feasibility of solutions and prepare the innovation to a minimum viable product (MVP) stage of readiness.
Proposers in this category must demonstrate that the innovation in the product, service, or innovative business model functionally works.
By the end of your proposed project, you should be able to demonstrate the extent that the proposed MVP is usable on and beneficial to Cardano or a Cardano L2 service, side-chain, or partner-chain.
Submissions are encouraged from proposers of products or services that intend to deploy first the solution via the suite of testnet environments offered by the wider Cardano ecosystem, before deploying live onto the Cardano mainchain.
300k ada is the maximum amount of funding a single proposal can request in Cardano Use Cases: Solution category.
Projects in this category do not need to be open source and may be proprietary, however in all cases the proposed technology solution must be for the benefit of the Cardano ecosystem.
Applications must include evidence of an existing prototype that is made publicly available and accessible to the Cardano community as part of the submission process.
