ROI+ Grants DAO

OceanDAO grants funds towards teams creating positive ROI for the Ocean Ecosystem. OCEAN holders help by voting and funding projects that lead to growth.

OceanDAO is a key component in the growth and sustainability of the Ocean Ecosystem.

You can get involved in OceanDAO by building a project, or voting on proposals that shape the future of Ocean.

Builders: Propose your project to the community. Answer questions in chat. The community votes whether to fund your project. There are many categories to choose from.

Voters: Learn more about proposals in detail on Port. Vote for the projects that you think will add the most value. Any OCEAN holder can vote. The weight of your vote is based on your OCEAN holdings.

Go to OceanDAO Wiki for precise instructions.

Please Note: The Shipyard funding program has now been merged with OceanDAO. We kindly ask teams to apply to OceanDAO for all grant funding.

How It Works

OceanDAO funds a large number of teams that build projects across core DAO pillars. By utilizing OceanDAO, successful projects can in time deliver value greater than their grant, creating a positive feedback loop.

Our mission is to deliver funds towards ROI+ projects.

Teams use the Proposal Template to explain, and pitch their idea to the community.

These Proposals are submitted to Port, where the DAO discusses and reviews which ones have the potential to make a big impact.

Proposals: Teams can write as many proposals as they want to engage the community, to understand which projects are appealing to the DAO.

Grants: Teams can Register 1 Proposal per Funding Round. We highly encourage teams to collaborate with each other to increase proposal quality, and community collaboration.

We support a variety of Categories for teams to receive funding!
