The PolySwarm grant program
We’re granting $5,000+, per-project, to develop software microengines with one mission: automated detection of malware submitted to the PolySwarm marketplace. Malware can appear anywhere: files, URLs, or web pages, but it’s up to you to choose your focus.
How do I get funded?
Fill out our short application here and send us your idea. Our technical team will carefully review each idea for impact, feasibility, and alignment with the goals for the PolySwarm marketplace.
What's the catch?
A critical mass of microengines in the PolySwarm market will help protect users from new/emergent malware. Grant winning developers keep their IP but promise to run their microengine on the PolySwarm marketplace. We’d love to see your source code and talk about it, but that’s not required.
How do I make money?
After initial development, your microengine runs autonomously, hunting for malware and earning tokens while you sleep. Just tune and optimize your engine to keep it relevant.
