The Grants Council has opened early submissions as an Indication of Interest for this mission request here

For your application to be considered, the Mission request must pass the Token House vote on February 14th. Early submissions will not be considered if a Mission Request is not approved on the 14th.

My level is Ember. Can I only apply for 50k OP? I saw in the proposal details that I can fill in more than 150k OP? Can you answer this for me? Thanks

On Season 5 all mission request applications are subject to the Collective Trust Tiers. So yes, if you are Ember the 50k limit applies.

Thank you. Do all the proposals add up to get 50k?

No, you can request up to 250k OP but you need to have the Collective Tier that enables you to do so. If you don’t the limit is 50K

Excited about this proposal! We are an indie game studio considering the idea of introducing our game into the Optimism ecosystem, and we would like to gauge your interest.

In the past, we have successfully developed a fully on-chain PvP roguelike game called Mississippi. Players will explore randomly dropped treasure boxes in a massive cave and battle with each other to plunder treasures. We have conducted multiple playtests with the participation of hundreds of players, you may play the game here: https://0xmssp.xyz

We hope to apply for the grant to develop further features, explore innovative approaches like ERC-404 to enhance the liquidity of in-game NFT assets, and do marketing to engage more users.

While it may seem that the Optimism ecosystem may not have a significant presence in the gaming sector (please correct me if I’m mistaken), we firmly believe that gaming has immense potential, beyond finance, to bring in users and funds as a Web3 application. We wanted to share our thoughts here and welcome any feedback or insights from the community.

Thank you for your patient answer, tradao.xyz will submit the application.I hope more people can use OP.

This rules!!! Building out the Superchain is the kind of thing that helps every project everywhere, even if they’re not on Optimism nor even using EVM. LFG!

@blockblanc @garyshengedgecity @APACDAO Just flagging this opportunity for you. Please read the mission goals as outlined in the first post on this thread and look at this example as an application submission.

I believe your work in Europe, Asia and around the world as a pop up city can help accomplish this mission. Happy to support with the application and submit as an alliance it for you if you don’t meet the trust tier requirements.

Sample application:


GM @marktanft This is the Growth and experiments opportunity, it’s a good fit for the YGG questing programs that engage and acquire users with gaming partners.

This is the application link: CharmVerse - the all-in-one web3 space

Happy to jam on this with you.
