The deliverables of projects funded by the DAO through the Grants Program should be built or compatible with the last stable Decentraland SDK.
The proposal aims to make a new requirement for the Grants Program: the deliverables of projects funded by the DAO through the Program should be built or compatible with the last stable Decentraland SDK.
In July 2022, Decentraland Foundation introduced Decentraland’s SDK 7 through the SDK 7 Manifesto. This document outlined the vision to refine the SDK to its ideal form - an open protocol for creating metaverse content-. This envisioned SDK would be open to any platform that chooses to adopt it, fostering collaboration and accessibility in the metaverse landscape.
After months of dedicated effort, incorporating valuable community feedback during alpha and beta releases, Foundation announced that SDK 7 is ready.
In the current Grants Program Framework there’s no requirement to the projects funded by the DAO to make the deliverables compatible with the latest version of the SDK, and this governance proposal is thought to update the documentation and make this a requirement.
The proposal aims to make a new requirement for grants applications, to be added to the Grants Program Framework as follows:
“The deliverables of projects funded by the DAO through the Grants Program should be built or compatible with the last stable Decentraland SDK.”
Implementing this requirement aligns grant projects more closely with the latest advancements in Decentraland’s technology, fostering innovation and encouraging developers to leverage the capabilities of the most recent SDK version. This can lead to more efficient, secure, and feature-rich projects, ultimately enhancing the quality of the content.
update grant program documentation. Specifically the requirements section.
This approach ensures that grant-funded projects align with the most current and robust technical standards, allowing for enhanced performance, integration, and overall quality.
