TL: DR

  • Developers can receive support to deploy new and amazing projects on the SORA network.
  • New projects that are developed from scratch can receive financial backing in XOR and project incubation, as well as development support.
  • Projects that already have users on another network can get XOR grants to pay for porting the projects to the SORA network, as well as development mentorship and advice on how to deploy.

Decentralized Development at its Best

SORA is a truly decentralized movement, run by the community and for the community. Everyone is encouraged to actively participate in the development and constant improvement of the network. An example of this is the RFP development process, a program that allows users to submit requests for new features, and subsequently, proposals themselves to add new functions and to the network. Some successful proposals include the XSTUSD stablecoin and the Referral Program that will soon be released into production.

The SORA Builders Programme is now launching to take the power of decentralization even further, and aid the community to make all their great ideas and suggestions to improve the network a reality.

The Two Modalities of the SORA Builders Programme

The SORA Builders Programme is an extension of the SORA RFP program (see also How to RFP). The SORA Builders Programme branches out into two modalities, New Project (Incubation) and Existing Project (Port). As the names imply, this programme will support the implementation and development of new projects, as well as porting existing apps onto the SORA network.

Both new projects and ports can receive compensation in the form of XOR, as well as development support from the SORA community. Because effectively, time and development efforts are not free, and in order to uphold the community standards, not everyone who applies will be accepted by the programme.

It is also important to mention that depending on the value added by the project, it may also qualify for Social Insurance, however, there will be required due diligence and the project will have to prove systematic importance to the community.

It is easy to ask wot and wen when it comes to development, but putting your RFP where your complaints are is not that simple to do. The community has no limitation to what is proposed, however, spam, CEX requests, and other off-topic requests will not be considered.

Time to #Buidl

The fate of the SORA network lies in the hands of its users! SORA governance does not limit the use of the network to the desires of one entity, but rather, it empowers users and community members to improve the network as much as they want through the implementation of programs like RFP submissions and the SORA Builders Programme. Progress from both these initiatives will be reported in the fortnightly Ecosystem Updates, and all the submissions, as well as RFP and merged implementations, are publicly accessible in the SORA RFP Github Repository which ensures that full transparency and decentralized practices are always upheld.

For more information, read the articles SORA Decentralized Development Process, How to RFP, and Social Insurance for Systematically Important Infrastructure. To stay in the loop with the latest implementations of the SORA network and Polkaswap, make sure to follow the Ecosystem updates, and finally, to get a taste of what is to come, watch the SORA Development Public Request for Proposal (RFP) Process Github Repo!

About SORA, Polkaswap, and Fearless Wallet

SORA is a new economic system aimed at creating a supranational multiverse economic system with built-in tools for decentralized finance (DeFi). The SORA network implements a new way of parachain architecture on Polkadot and Kusama network, with the capability to bridge external blockchains (like Ethereum) to the Polkadot ecosystem.

One of the DeFi applications that will run on the SORA network is Polkaswap, a non-custodial liquidity aggregating, cross-chain AMM DEX designed uniquely for the Polkadot ecosystem with boundless liquidity through its one-of-a-kind Aggregate Liquidity Technology (ALT).

Fearless Wallet is a mobile wallet designed for the decentralized future on the Kusama and Polkadot ecosystem, with support for iOS and Android platforms. An awesome user experience, fast performance, and secure storage for your accounts. Fearless Wallet will integrate Polkaswap for easy, decentralized swaps of assets.
