The secret behind QF

It's the mathβ„’

A matching pool is raised, and then a crowdfund campaign is matched according to the QF algorithm:

  • Number of contributors matters more than .
  • amount funded

  • This pushes power to the edges, away from whales & other central power brokers.
  • This creates more democracy in public goods funding decisions! πŸ¦„
