How Can $1 Turn Into $27? Quadratic Funding Explained

Public Goods

  • Open-source projects — projects and protocols built on publicly accessible infrastructure such as the Internet or the Ethereum blockchain, or useful libraries that can facilitate work of other software developers.
  • Free education — education available to everyone, for example, a newsletter, a podcast or a Youtube channel on decentralized finance
  • Free services — ethical hacking — finding vulnerabilities in open source projects

Quadratic Funding

  • Project A got $1,000 in funding from 5 contributors ($200 each).
  • Project B also received $1,000 but from 2 contributors ($500 each).
  • Project C received the same amount — $1,000 — from 20 contributors ($50 each).

Incentives

  • $1 — their $1 is matched by $26.97 which is almost 2700% — 27x of the contributed amount
  • $5 — would be matched by $59.8 — around 1200% — 12x of the contributed amount
  • $20 — would be matched by $117.77 ~ 590%
