xGrant program

Wormhole is an open source blockchain development platform connecting the decentralized web. Hundreds of companies and applications use Wormhole’s blockchain connectivity platform to securely and scalably grow their user base, increase market share, and drive more on-chain activity.


The xGrant Program aims to empower innovative teams and projects with financial assistance, mentorship, and essential resources, fostering their growth and industry impact.

Open to developers and founders at any project stage, the xGrant covers various costs like software development, marketing, and team expenses. Wormhole is dedicated to supporting these innovators in overcoming challenges and advancing their projects.

Requests for proposals
