Distributed Funds

ICON's Contribution Proposal System (CPS) is a decentralized grant program for teams building on ICON. Whether your focus is development, marketing, or community building, the CPS is here to fund you.

Easy Application Process

Easy Application Process

Applying for CPS funding is quick and easy. Share your idea on the ICON forum for discussion, and submit a proposal when ready.

Decentralized Funding

ICON's CPS is a fully decentralized grant program governed by validators on the ICON network.

Paid in bnUSD

Unlike grant programs that pay out in a volatile asset, CPS utilizes the bnUSD stablecoin for predictable income month after month.

Consistent Payouts

Once your CPS proposal is approved, you'll automatically receive monthly payouts in bnUSD as you hit project milestones.

No KYC

Submitting a CPS proposal doesn't require clunky KYC procedures, which means anyone, anywhere can apply for funding with ease.

Community Support

Looking for beta testers or early adopters for your project? Bootstrap your CPS-funded project with ICON's tight-knit community.
