The grant winners are selected according to judges’ scoring results.

  • First Grant: $2,000
  • Second Grant: $1,000
  • Rising Star Grant: $500

Community Quadratic Funding Grant Pool: $10,000

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 grant 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 grant you can potentially hunt for:

  • $2000/1000/500 in BUIDLer’s Grants
  • Plus Quadratic funding matching grants ($10,000 in total)
  • Plus Community contribution from supporters (in BNB, not limited)

*Due diligence will be conducted on the eligibility of every round grantee from BNB Grant DAO. DoraHacks reserves the rights of any revocation/adjustment of the grants.

Getting Started

How Community Will Vote

In Round 3, 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 grant 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.
