What is quadratic funding? How does it work?

Quadratic Funding Grant is inspired by Vitalik Buterin and was first applied in GitCoin’s Quadratic Funding Mechanism to fund public goods. Soon after that, it swept through the Ethereum ecosystem.

The funding mechanism includes two grant pools:

  1. Direct donations from community contributors
  2. 2. A matching prize pool from sponsors

The quadratic funding algorithm is intended to increase the weight of community donation and decrease the weight of a single contributor. It makes it more difficult for a single contributor to invest heavily into one single project, and thus encourages community contributors to donate to more projects.
