The Polygon Grants Hackathon powered by DoraHacks will be moving into its next phase of Community Quadratic Voting from October 1st, 2021- October 29th,2021.
The voting consists of a unique quadratic funding mechanism that not only signals your support but also contributes to retroactive public goods funding. We call out to the Polygon community to support your favorite projects by casting your vote.
By getting involved in the quadratic funding/voting process, you not only help support and put an early bet on these projects in their early days but also help support and contribute to the overall growth of the Polygon ecosystem.
Quadratic Funding is an optimal way to fund public goods in a community. It amplifies the donations made by a large community over the contributions made by a small group with big pockets. In simple terms, the amount received by the project is the amount donated. An additional amount is matched by the grant pool, which is calculated using the quadratic funding formula. Voting will happen on the Polygon network, and MATIC will be used as the native currency to support the projects, which will be matched from a grant pool of $50k.
How to get involved in voting for and funding the next generation of native Polygon projects?
Connect your wallet and enter the votes you want to give. The Nth vote will cost N*1 MATIC, so if you’re going to give 3 votes, you need to give 1+2+3=6 MATIC.
There you have it! You have successfully contributed to the growth of Polygon by voting in the Polygon Grants Hackathon!
You can even view a real-time leaderboard of the projects during the voting period here.

Frequently Asked Question
1. Can I see my voting history?
For voters, the voting history is not available at the moment. But the project you voted for can still get your address at the end of this hackathon.
2. Can the project with more votes get a bigger share of the prize pool?
Popularity is the basis of the distribution of the prize pool for the Quadratic Funding mechanism. Basically, if a project gets support from more VOTERS (rather than votes), it will get more prizes at the end of the hackathon.
For example, a project with 10 votes from 10 voters gets more than a project with 10 votes from less voters.
3. Where will the MATIC I pay go?
The votes (or we call “donations”) will go directly to the project and its owner.
