Introducing Polymarket Microgrants
With $100M+ traded since launching our Stage 2 beta just six months ago, Polymarket needs your help to continue building the world’s source for real-time, unbiased insights into the future
The Polymarket team is excited to announce our microgrants program that will support our community members who want to build, create, and innovate within our ecosystem. We could not have reached the $100M trade volume milestone without you, and we want to give you the opportunity to work on your passion project on our dime.
This initiative reflects our commitment to providing actionable data on the topics most important to society without the distortion of fake news and hot takes from pundits. Your projects will help grow the Polymarket community and expand the impact of information markets on society.
