Cool that DEV is doing these Hackathons!
Is Grant For The Web a similar concept as BAT (Brave Attention Tokens)? Never heard of it before, but sounds interesting.

Grant for the Web is a $100M fund to boost open, fair, and inclusive standards and innovation in Web Monetization.

Web Monetization enables secure, streaming payments to creators & publishers. The API is proposed as a W3C standard based on Interledger, an open protocol suite for sending payments across different ledgers and is not tied to a single company, blockchain, or currency.

Web Monetization is similar in concept to Brave Rewards. Brave Rewards is built on the Basic Attention Token (BAT), an Ethereum based token which was created alongside its home platform, the Brave Browser (the wallet can be funded with a currency or by earning tokens with ad views).
