-BUIDLer‘s Fixed Grant: 4000 APT max
-Based on the project's quality and circumstances, the grant distribution will be implemented on a three-tier grant system. The maximum grant amount per round is 4000 APT, with any remaining funds carried forward . Exceptional projects may receive premium grants.
**Important: Every grant candidate project must be running on the Aptos blockchain (testnet/devnet/mainnet).
Premium: 500 APT
First Tier Grant: 300 APT
Second Tier Grant: 200 APT
