Our team will reach out to the grantee shortly after and complete a full review of the proposal within a week. A typical grant process will look like this:

  1. We review the application and refines metrics and deliverables together with the grantees.

  2. Grantees and Harmony team recruits 6 governors to strongly support the grant.

  3. Projects are posted publicly on and on Governors confirms their support publicly on the forum.

  4. Grantees carefully review the full guidelines on to align expectations on milestones and funding.

  5. Grantees are notified by Friday and start their projects the following Monday.

We engage publicly on the open Telegram channel and on email at

We started giving out the first grant in July 2020 and have given 12 grants as of September 15, 2020. Our goal for end of Q4 2020 is to have given 50 total grants with 100,000 total users.

Going forward, we have learned to be as specific as possible setting grant deliverables and metrics upfront with each grantee. We'll be clearly setting expectations with governors (below) and streamline the approval process to handle starting five new grants weekly to maximize Harmony Foundation's 154 million monthly token allocation.
