About the Sockets category

This category is home to all Socket grant requests. Each topic post is a request to open a Socket, and includes regular updates and materials from the grantees work.

A Socket request can be opened to support one of the Ambitions of the latest Era.

A Socket request must include:

  1. Ambition you plan to support, metric you plan to influence, and a very simple description of your planned work
  2. Type of Socket:
    • Trial: $500 for 2 week trial of something
    • Experiment/Initiative: $1-2K, paid and reviewed monthly, for the life of the experiment
  3. Committment to “Default to open”. Default to open means agreeing to self report progress each month and providing a link to where WIP work will be stored.
    Example: “I will work in the open and self report monthly. My work can be viewed at this github repo at any time
  4. Wallet address for Socket payments
