Fund Your Dream Development Project

At Kraken, we know that our work wouldn’t be possible without the countless hours spent on innovative ideas by passionate open-source contributors. 

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies simply would not exist without these unsung heroes. 

That’s why we’ve started an open-source grant program designed to highlight and elevate great work that’s crucial to helping cryptocurrencies reach their potential.

Below you’ll find information on how to apply for a Kraken grant, as well as examples of the work that has inspired our giving in the past. 

We look forward to expanding financial freedoms together.
