[Grant Proposal] Droppr NFT Platform


Droppr is building a community-owned Bitcoin-Native NFT marketplace. The Droppr Marketplace will be a high profile, project designed and developed by veteran cryptographers, cyber-security leaders, blockchain technologists and high-performance app developers. We would like to build on the Rarible Protocol and offer early tokens and ongoing revenue opportunities for supporting early growth.


Bitcoin users do not currently have the infrastructure for engaging with NFTs at a level blockchain users are used to. We will implement The Rarible Protocol on RSK to extend protocol adoption and establish Droppr as the a community owned and opperated NFT marketplace of Bitcoin.

We will consider ourselves independent contractors of the Rarible DAO and will report taxes accordingly. Forms W8-BEN and W9 will be filled out accordingly before funds get distributed to our team.

Use of funds

Funds will be used to hire a designer, and front end developer. The funds will also be used for governance and Rari long term staking.

Business Model

Droppr will raise money through a Token Launch and implement a fee for the sale of curated NFTs. Protocol fees will be split between Droppr DAO, governance stakers, and Rarible Protocol. We will operate in a decentralized manner using token staking for governance.

The Interspace team has been hosting virtual events and build web3 infrastructure for several years. Sovyrn has lead adoption and development on the RSK network by building native Defi protocol created for the RSK network and promoting development of key infrastructure.


Our project will attend weekly community calls, and provide updates on our milestones as we make progress. In the event that we can’t fulfill our commitment, funds will be returned to Rarible DAO. We will also work with community members to ensure updates are distributed through the Rarible communication channels.

Why should Rarible DAO fund this?

Droppr would like to offer Rarible DAO a portion of tokens (111,111.11) earmarked for early adoption to signal alignment and give Rarible long term incentive in the success of the Droppr platform. We will drive adoption of The Rarible Protocol and promote Rarible Protocol as the standard in open source software for NFT Marketplaces. All of our software will be open source software released under MIT license. Droppr Platform is a well aligned organization that believes in community first, building an NFT marketplace to drive adoption to the largest crypto market, Bitcoin, and need your support.
