🖥️ Current Funding Focus - Building a User-Friendly Front-end
In the current phase of the Diamond Grant program, we are specifically funding projects related to the development of a new front-end for Dopex. Our goal is to create an interface that's intuitively designed for retail users, making it as easy as possible for them to access and interact with our Options protocol.
If you are a developer, designer, or have an innovative solution to help us achieve this goal, we are more than excited to hear from you!
🔍 What We're Looking For:
Here's what we're looking for in the new front-end:
- User-Friendly: The interface must be easy to navigate even for someone new to the DeFi Options space. We are targeting simplicity, intuitiveness, and accessibility.
- Seamless Integration: The front-end should smoothly integrate with the Dopex protocol, providing users with a seamless experience from start to finish.
- Reliable & Secure: User trust is paramount. The front-end must be reliable and secure, ensuring the user's assets and data are always protected.
- Ability to scale: The front-end should be easily scalable to accommodate an increasing number of users without any significant performance issues.

What is a grant?
A grant is a financial award given by an organization (in this case, Dopex) to fund a specific project or initiative. Unlike a loan, a grant does not need to be repaid. The goal of our Diamond Grants is to foster innovation, growth, and improvement within the Dopex ecosystem by financially supporting beneficial projects and ideas.
Who qualifies for a grant?
Diamond Grants are open to anyone who can contribute meaningfully to the Dopex ecosystem. This includes but is not limited to developers, UI/UX designers, data analysts, and Tokenomics experts. As long as you have an idea or skill that can significantly improve our protocol and ecosystem, you can apply for a Diamond Grant.
How much is the average grant request, and over how long?
The amount of each Diamond Grant can vary significantly based on the specific project's needs and scope. Therefore, there is no set "average" grant amount. We review each application on a case-by-case basis and determine funding based on the proposed project's potential impact on the Dopex ecosystem, the project's complexity, and the resources required. Similarly, the timeline of a grant is project-dependent. However, most grants aim to achieve their request milestones within six months of funding.
Please note that funded grants will be distributed in DPX, ARB, USDC.
Who is reviewing the Diamond grants?
The Diamond Grants are reviewed by the Dopex team, which comprises a diverse group of experienced professionals in the DeFi space. The team assesses each grant application based on its potential value to the Dopex ecosystem, feasibility, and the applicant's ability to deliver. The primary aim is to ensure that each funded project aligns with our goal of improving Dopex in meaningful ways.
