🤔 How to contribute to Superteam?

🚢 Ship Cool Sh!t on Solana

Check out open bounties from many cool projects from the ecosystem and apply for grants if you have an idea of your own. Join a team full-time! Find jobs and internships on Superteam Earn.

  1. Bounties: Open contests typically completed in less than a few days with first prizes of $1,000+. These can be deep dive essays, graphic design work, writing threads, content and even product reviews you can do over the weekend.

    You can find open Superteam bounties, by Clicking Here!

  2. Grants: These are Equity-free grants to support builders across the Solana ecosystem. Applications take less than 15 minutes, approval decisions come within 48 hours. So, Grants are a much better way to turn your idea into a product. Explore grants, by Clicking Here!

  3. Jobs and Internship: You can get a job or an internship with your PoW (Proof of Work) in the community and Solana ecosystem projects. After learning while making some projects, you can use multiple opportunities that are lined up for you, which can't be ignored at all costs.
