We have started to review your application, due to the early stages of our DAO (Season 0) we are only able to provide grants up to $10,000. In addition to this, it is not clear how this project would help grow the Polygon Ecosystem.

For these reasons we have concluded not to award you the grant at this stage.

Thank you for your interest in Polygon and I wish you every success with your projects.
