The Peerplays Blockchain Standards Association (PBSA), a non-profit organization, established in 2016, that supports the development of provably fair gaming on the Peerplays blockchain, has announced the launch of a brand new grant program for developers to help build out the Peerplays ecosystem.

The total pot for Peerplays Grants will be the equivalent of $1 million USD. The grants will be dispersed as a combination of BTC, native PPY token, and development & marketing resources.

Although Peerplays Grants does not bias against applications from businesses or developers who may wish to profit from the fruits of Peerplays Grants-funded projects, Peerplays Grants should NOT be considered a funding platform for new business endeavors. Only those applicants creating an open source public project – for public benefit – will be considered.

According to PBSA, project ideas can include:

  • Video Games – Battle royale, roleplaying, first-person. Don’t forget about in-game trading, competitions, point collection, profile building, and more.
  • Collectibles – From baseball cards to digital pets. If you can collect it online, blockchain probably makes it better (i.e. more secure).
  • Casino-style games – Think sports betting, dice, card games, roulette, slots…
  • Online stores, auction sites, instant messenger, social media, etc.

Previously, PBSA launched BookiePro, a fully decentralized sports betting exchange.

Grants are disbursed on a case by case basis, with preference given to projects with the greatest chance at “mass success” on the Peerplays blockchain.

Peerplays open source code can be found at github.com/peerplays-network. More information and the application can also be found here.
