Created: 10/27/2022

Simple Summary

Reward Testnet GRAINS to all who minted cross chain Paloma eggs.


A community spend of 1,000,000 testnet GRAINS is requested to reward all Paloma addresses that ran the egg minting contract.


With over 200 cross chain eggs minted on Ethereum from Cosmos, the Paloma community continues to seek for more incentives for their efforts in interacting with the Paloma testnet.

Being the first to test and trust in Paloma’s cross chain capabilities, the community should be incentivized with testnet GRAINS.

Specification Overview


The proposed community spend will be limited to the following collections on OpenSea:

GRAINS Breakdown

1,000,000 GRAINS will be distributed equally among all unique addresses that ran the Paloma egg minting contract for both OG Paloma Egg Hunt & Paloma TestNest Egg Hunt collections.

Technical Specification

This will require a governance proposal for spending community funds after the addresses have been collected.

By incentivizing cross chain Egg holders with testnet GRAINS, the community will continue to realize the value of interacting with the Paloma chain in its current testnet state. Once the flock flies mainnet, those already involved will be the first to actualize the potential of Paloma’s cross chain messaging capabilities.
