XRPL Grants Wave 3 Theme: Contributing to Open Source

Applications for Wave 3 are now open!

The official theme for this wave is “Contributing to Open Source.” The Program aims to support the independent, open-source ecosystem development around the XRP Ledger (XRPL). Making “Contributing to Open Source” the focus area of Wave 3 encourages projects that not only expand and enhance the resources available for XRPL developers, but that also continue to grow and strengthen the XRPL community. Types of projects may include:

  • Creating and open-sourcing a new project
  • Contributing to an existing open-source project
  • Adding XRP or XRP Ledger support to a project
  • Integrating the XRP Ledger with existing APIs, SDKs, and technologies that simplify deployment and integration
  • Building libraries for the XRP Ledger
  • Opening PRs for other projects to support the XRP Ledger

Projects applications for Wave 3 will be accepted form March 4 - 28, 2022, and applicants can view and submit their applications online. For all information about applying visit www.xrplgrants.org.
