Align with Sonr Mission
At Sonr we’re on a mission to unlock true digital ownership. Projects that receive grants should illustrate alignment and reflection of this mission in their goals and use-cases. This also involves leveraging key Sonr technology:
Verifiable identity on-chain
Capture the value of verifiable on-chain identity by leveraging this technology to unlock secure identity-enabled on-chain experiences for their end users.
Leverage Sonr’s high-speed peer-to-peer networking technology to create experiences between users, creators, developers, applications, and other peers on the Sonr network.
Design in a user-centered way
Sonr prides itself in being a design-first company. Projects should display user-centered design combining market research, user interviews, user feedback channels, and other key elements of a user-centered experience.
Be excited about what you’re building
Sonr’s grant program aims to give you a chance to build something that you and your team are excited to bring to the world. Not only should you highlight your team’s strengths and capabilities, but you should also convey why you’re excited to build your project in the Sonr ecosystem.

- Data science, Business Intelligence, and Analytics: Users can contribute to projects seeking data for Machine Learning and other related use-cases.
- Content-creation: Content creators can sell their content and associated products directly to their consumers, without the overhead of third-party applications or owners.
