Ternoa Accelerator The Blox

What is this accelerator program about?

The goal of this program is to bootstrap innovative Web3 projects building top-notch NFT and Metaverse solutions on the Ternoa blockchain. Projects will develop their product and business model with the help of The Blox’s resources during a 3-month acceleration period.

Go from project to startup in a heartbeat.


The Blox and Ternoa have entered a partnership to give builders the opportunity to turn their projects into startups and receive grants and funding after graduating from the program. Ternoa is a decentralized open-source layer 1 that provides a technological stack to build secure and scalable utility NFTs. It is also the first NFT-centric blockchain and the project uses Polkadot’s Substrate Framework.

The program’s mission is to support the launch of innovative startups that will contribute to the growth of the Ternoa ecosystem and infrastructure. The Blox and Ternoa will give startups access to plenty of resources, technical and design support, as well as a network of mentors and investors.
