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 early developer projects and blockchian ventures.

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

Expected projects · Defi, Web3, NFT projects based on Solana development. · For Defi project direction, please refer to the Defi Hackathon project idea list. https://github.com/solana-labs/solana-season/blob/master/ideas.md Must Incorporate Solana public chain into their projects in some way.

Solana Quadratic Funding Grant Round-1 is from May to June. Developers participating in this round should submit projects in Submit BUIDL page and select "Solana Grant Round 1" as project source. Submitted projects will display on the round's detail 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.

There are two funding sources - the community donation and the sponsor's prize 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 will eventually determine how the sponsor pool gets distributed.
