Judging Process

Applicant Demo Guideline

  • We'll invite top BUIDLs to attend the applicant demo showcase live stream. Please ensure to provide a valid TG contact for reaching out.
  • Every BUIDL will be given 5 minutes to present by tracks, with an estimated 6-8 BUIDLs that will be arranged for each session/episode.
  • Invited judges will comment and question after each presentation.
  • Recordings are available to stream on DoraHacks Youtube and Binance Live for further evaluation when needed.
  • Though submitted BUIDLs are editable up to the deadline, it is important and mandatory to provide detailed projects and team information for review reference.

Internal Voting

1. Each judge will have 10 votes. To avoid bias, every judge should vote for NO LESS THAN 3 projects.

2. Every vote is validated with funds.

Ex, we have $500K distributed to the Defi track. And we have 5 judges and each of them has 10 votes:

The value of 1 vote = $500K/5/10 = $10K

So if one project receives 3 votes from the review panellist, the team will eventually receive:

$10K * 3 = $30K
