POW NFT Community Grant Program

A Thulium ion with +3 charge, created with Proof of Work NFT mining.

POW NFT Grant Program

For this reason, I’m excited to share with you an initiative of community member @BoredElonMusk, his POW NFT Grant Program. This program is entirely the work of @BoredElonMusk, but it has my blessing and I’ve agreed to help judge submissions. The goal of this entirely community-funded program is to encourage development and experimentation on top of the existing framework of the POW NFT project, with the goal of expanding outside interest and/or the utility of the project.

Prize Details

A total of $10,000 will be awarded by @BoredElonMusk:
$7,500 for the first place submission,
$2,500 for second.
With all funds being dispensed in Ether.

Submission criteria

All submissions must satisfy the following criteria:

  1. The concept must operate within the limits of the existing POW NFT framework. Submissions should not rely on future updates or request changes by the creator.
  2. You must explain the value of your project to the POW NFT community and why it might also be appealing to outside parties who have yet to discover POW NFT.
  3. You must provide high-level details on what you intend on creating, and steps you’ll take to vet the idea, develop it, and test it.
  4. All submissions should include high-level estimates on timing and milestones.
  5. You must explain how you will deploy the funds if you are awarded the grant.
  6. All submissions must be based on new projects, and nothing that has already been a work-in-progress prior to the launch of this grant program.
  7. You don’t need to be technical to participate in this grant program. If your concept can be achieved by non-technical means, please apply. Alternatively, provide details if you intend to use the grant to compensate a tech partner.


Submissions are due by May 31, 2021


Submissions will be evaluated by:

  • AnAllergyToAnalogy (me) — creator of POW NFT.

Get creative

One of the benefits of a community-driven project is that our members freely share their thoughts on how the project can improve, in fact we have a whole channel in our Discord devoted to ideas for project improvements. So if POW NFT has set off any light bulbs I encourage you to apply!
