  • Rising Star Grant: $500

Community Quadratic Funding Prize Pool: $10,000

  • First Grants and second grants winners will enter the community quadratic voting round.

The grant pool in $10,000 will be distributed based on quadratic funding algorithm, namely the popularity of the grantee projects. The more the voters, the bigger matching prize the project will earn. Meanwhile, all the cost of voting will be sent to the project directly as community funding

*In this voting round, vcDORA will add weight to your votes when you have more than 2 vcDORA.

So the total prize you can potentially hunt for:

  • $2000/1000/500 in BUIDLer’s Grants

Getting Started

How Community Will Vote

In Round 2, the results of community voting via $BNB are based on quadratic funding algorithm. When a project is popular among the voters, it’s more likely to get more matching funds from the prize pool.

Besides, vcDORA will add weight to your votes when you have more than 2 vcDORA.

More details of guidance will be release before voting round starts.
