We’re excited to announce that the Lyra GrantsDAO is active and looking forward to receiving proposals! This is a great step-forward for Lyra in its aim to become a fully decentralized protocol.
The GrantDAO consists of five community and team members, who are tasked with authoring new request for proposals (RFPs) and reviewing new proposals for Lyra grants.

Who are the GrantsDAO members?
The following members were voted onto the GrantsDAO council via Lyra token holder vote:
What is the purpose of the GrantsDAO?
The GrantsDAO was set up to encourage community participation and to reward initiatives that help the protocol. By using the Dao format with public voting and discussion the GrantsDAO is both transparent and decentralized. More on the Lyra gDAO Mission Statement can be found here
What can be proposed?
Any new initiatives can be proposed, we are open to any idea as long as it contributes to the Lyra protocol! Alternatively, community members can look at existing RPCs that have been highlighted as priorities and pick one to start work on.
Where should you start?
We’d like to highlight the following RFP’s that we are keen for the community to be involved with:
1) API Development
Developing an API that implements OSI (Option Symbology Initiative) and supports FIX protocol.

How to propose a grant for Lyra funding
Head over to https://grants.lyra.finance/ and take a look at our existing RFPs, select one to apply for funding for. Alternatively propose your own, once you have a project to request funding for then complete the following steps:
- Fill out the online Application Form. Be sure to add as much detail as possible, also let us know if you are applying for an existing RFP or proposing a new one.
- The GrantsDao will receive your proposal and perform an initial check, if it warrants consideration then it will be submitted for a vote.
- There is a one week period allowing the dao and community to discuss the merits of the RFP and if it’s aligned with the goals of Lyra.
- After this period is complete the DAO will vote Yes, No or abstain.
- If a proposal receives four votes then it is approved.
Categories of proposal broadly consist of integrations, promotions, community events and language translations. Any initiative that will grow Lyra will be considered so don’t be locked to these!
We will be hosting a community call to discuss the GrantsDao and answer any questions you may have. The call will be held:
When: Thursday, 24th March 7pm EST
Where: Lyra Discord
If you have any further queries or would like to contribute then don’t hesitate to get involved, we look forward to hearing your ideas!
