Allocation of Grants

Initial prize pool: 5000 USDC

Direct donation from the community: No limit. (In previous events, direct donations from the communities have often exceeded the total prize pool!)

This Hackathon adopts a quadratic voting algorithm to allocate prizes, and the prize pool will be distributed to teams based on the popularity of their uploaded projects, while projects will also receive direct donations from community voters.

In a word, the final project earnings = the prize pool allocation + direct donations from community voters!

About Flow

Flow is a fast, decentralized, and developer-friendly blockchain, designed as the foundation for a new generation of games, apps, and the digital assets that power them. It is based on a unique, multi-role architecture, and designed to scale without sharding, allowing for massive improvements in speed and throughput while preserving a developer-friendly, ACID-compliant environment.

Flow empowers developers to build thriving crypto- and crypto-enabled businesses. Applications on Flow can keep consumers in control of their own data; create new kinds of digital assets tradable on open markets accessible from anywhere in the world; and build open economies owned by the users that help make them valuable.

While we originally started building Flow for our own use-cases, it has quickly become far bigger than us. Hundreds of developers in our discord(http://chat.onflow.org/) and thousands around the world agree: we’re being something special here.

Let’s build the future together!
