Grants and Prizes

Majority of the total prize pool will be reserved for the top 10 winning projects across all the sectors listed (DeFi, Web3, Metaverse, NFT, Gamefi, Infrastructure & tooling) by direct investment and will be awarded based on decisions of the judging panel comprising of many prominent figures within the space. This is an unprecedented opportunity to be funded by top funds like AVATAR, Blizzard, A&T, NGC, SNZ & many more.

Also, more than  $500,000 will be given to projects through quadratic funding on DoraHacks website where the community gets to decide who can get funded with their votes.
