It is likely that the killer dapps that enable MetaMask to grow to 100M users or 1B users will not be another DeFi or NFT use case but rather something new and compelling in the areas of gaming or social communication. Snaps enables deep integration at the wallet level for features such as authentication, notifications, and messaging. To this end, Snaps can support use cases for gaming and social communication, including DAO tooling (i.e. notifications and voting tools for DAOs) and leveraging open messaging protocols. Likewise, these Snaps can work in parallel with the MetaMask SDK to enable dapps for web, mobile, and Unity-based experiences.
Best Practices for Proposals
Here are some hard requirements our team expects to see:
- Must be open-source
- Free to use (or availability of a free tier in pricing model, if relevant)
- Teams should have a reasonable timeline in when they expect their project to hit the market (please include a roadmap in your proposal). We are running RFPs in one-month increments, and our grant program is operating with quarterly goals and key objectives, including budgeting
Please include relevant examples of previous work , and tell us about yourself/the team- we want to get to know you!
