HackerLink Grant is a quadratic funding dapp that supports early-stage projects and ideas from open source developer communities. Grant allows both community members and organizations (foundations, venture funds, senior projects) to participate in funding developer projects and blockchian ventures.

The goal of BSC Grant is to fund open source developers' projects via donation, so that these projects can develop further into a venture in the BSC ecosystem.

BSC Quadratic Funding Grant Round-1 accepts the following type of porjects but not limited to: new protocols and Dapps in Defi, DAO, NFT, etc, wallet and other infrastructures in the BSC ecosystem, data analytics and visualization tools, community education projects.

BSC Quadratic Funding Grant Round-1 is from 20/Jan/2021 to 15/Mar/2021. Developers participating in this round can submit project in Submit BUIDL page and select "BSC Grant Round 1" as project source. Submitted project will display on the round's page, and a real-time community donation ranking will be available on the leaderboard.

Voting Mechanism


We are inspired by Vitalik Buterin's work "Quadratic Payments" and GitCoin's practice to implement this mechanism so that we can provide quadratic funding tools to the DoraHacks global hackathon community. In particular, we are excited to bring this funding mechanism to Chinese developer communities.

There are two funding sources -- the community donation and the sponsor pool.

For individual community contributors: you can donate to any project(s) you like with your wallet. By clicking "Vote" following that project, you will be able to enter votes and the smart contract will return the cost (or the amount of donation) for the votes. Your votes and others' votes will eventually determine how the sponsor pool gets distributed.
