Overarching rules for VeChain Accelerator and Bounty Programs



  • The Accelerator Program is designed to support VeChain ecosystem projects with the resources, partnerships, and experience of VeChain as projects hit various milestones. In addition to the Accelerator Program, we also are continuing to find ways to power the bounty programs that aim to incentivize developers that attract users and contribute to the ecosystem by completing specific tasks. The Accelerator Program stands as a more engaged and dedicated support structure while the Bounty Programs solve more of an ad-hoc role in the ecosystem. The two work will go hand and hand and benefit from each other. Following overarching rules apply to both programs, so please make sure you read carefully and agree to them before applying for any program.

    1. Where applicable, a VeChain application means an application, usually web-based or mobile app, that can be accessed by users to interact with the VeChainThor blockchain, e.g. dApps powered by smart contracts, tools or infrastructure useful to the developers, applications integrating VET / VIP180 token payment or VIP181 NFT transfer

    2. Unless the requirement is specified, there is no limitation or preference on the category of the application or submission. The application categories may include but not limited to Business, Finance, Social Networking, Entertainment, Utilities. Where applicable, applications fitting the following attributes could be favored due to its value to the ecosystem and alignment with VeChain’s focus and strategy.
