As the ecosystem arm of Zilliqa, ZILHive is incentivised to support all projects building on the Zilliqa blockchain. We treat all application data as confidential information.

As a show of progress, projects will need to have a prototype to show for on Zilliqa Day at the end of the incubation programme.

Projects will have to be focused on either Open and/or Decentralised Finance. More project ideas can also be found on our Mission Board.

Solutions would need to be in line with Mission Board as these are opportunities that Zilliqa is focusing on. Projects would need a prototype by the end of the incubator for eligibility to apply to the grants.
