If you're a developer looking to make extra money without quitting your main job, you can make anywhere between a few thousand to ~$500,000 by participating in DAOs while learning and getting your foot in the door with web3 tech.

Here are 21 projects with solid grant programs:
A few (anecdotal) interesting grants I've seen happen at The Graph since joining:

GraphQL-request Abstractions Library -$20K
Front-end Design Tool - $400K
GraphQL Schema Prototyper - $100K
The Graph Academy (informational website) $50K
Here is a write up of the program at @graphprotocol, most of these operate in a similar way


I mention these because all have been pretty much single person projects

As someone who's worked as a developer in:

- The local tech scene
- FAANG (Amazon)
- Small to medium size startups
- Crypto

It's interesting to see the differences + tradeoffs in pay, and is also one of the things people ask me the most about.

Here's my take (small thread) 👇
Startups -> Medium pay, equity that probably will never become liquid, but relatively high upside if the company gets acquired or goes public

FAANG -> High pay, equity that is most definitely liquid, relatively little upside in equity unless you're lucky & are Tesla in 2020

Local non-tech companies (Mississippi) -> Lowest end of pay range, little to no equity. This is the type of job you use just to get your foot in the door and leave immediately when you have the chance to move on to something better (if you're looking to make more money).

A month ago I decided to leave a full time role in Cloud at AWS and go into DeFi, Web3, and crypto but haven't really talked about some of the reasons why I chose this space.

I did consider other opportunities, but I was on such a great team at AWS that making a lateral move
into a similar role or industry just did not make any sense at all. If I was going to move, I wanted to try something radically different.

I've also continued to become fascinated in self-governance, smart contracts, and decentralization. There's a lot of reasons why, stemming
from some deep ideological shifts I've experienced after current events, diving into various books, & thought pieces by people in the industry (including @balajis) as well as the economic crisis in places like Lebanon (and other countries) that hit really close to home for
