DApps We’re Excited to See you Build

Next Steps for Grant Disbursement
Following review of your submission, our team will schedule an intro call. If your application is approved, then we will ask you to sign an agreement and provide additional required information for grant disbursement. Grant disbursement begins based on the agreed-upon timeline between ZetaChain and the grantee, and will continue as long as agreed-upon milestones are met.
ZetaChain is the world’s first and only decentralized L1 blockchain with built-in cross-chain interoperability, connecting all blockchains, even non-smart contract chains like Bitcoin and Dogecoin. With ZetaChain’s complete Omnichain toolkit, developers can build true omnichain dApps from a single point of logic, and users can access all of their assets, data, and liquidity in a single place, securely.
