The Web3 Foundation, the organization behind Polkadot, has awarded a Decentralized Futures (DF) grant to Accelerate Polkadot, which aims to boost developer productivity within the Polkadot ecosystem.

The firm stated:

This groundbreaking initiative is dedicated to providing developers with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed in the Polkadot ecosystem through comprehensive, goal-oriented guides.”

This funding comes shortly after a similar grant was awarded to PolkaPort East to promote Polkadot’s Asian ecosystem growth.

Accelerate Polkadot

Accelerate Polkadot is a strategic initiative designed to lower entry barriers for developers on the Polkadot platform.

This program offers detailed, code-centric guides demonstrating practical applications and real-world use cases, making it easier for developers to launch innovative projects within the Polkadot ecosystem.

These resources are designed to be both accessible and engaging, enabling developers to start building quickly. The Web3 Foundation stated:

“All content produced is open-source, promoting transparency and community involvement. Developers are encouraged to contribute and provide feedback, fostering a collaborative environment.”

The first content package proposed focuses on creating a team management and rewards system for the game Cores & Conquests.

In this game, players can form guilds that others can petition to join. Guild members participate in governance through voting, managing aspects such as member admission and expulsion, choosing adventures, and distributing loot. This project will gamify the development of a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).

Accelerate Polkadot said this project will showcase much of the Polkadot SDK’s core functionality and introduce developers to crucial concepts like decentralized decision-making, Sybil resistance, staking, and slashing, as well as various voting systems (including quorum voting, permissioned relative majority, quadratic voting, conviction voting, holographic consensus, and liquid democracy) in a familiar context.
