Quadratic Funding is the mathematically optimal way to fund public goods in a democratic community.
The secret behind QF
It's the math™
A matching pool is raised, and then a crowdfund campaign is matched according to the QF algorithm:
- Number of contributors matters more than .
- This pushes power to the edges, away from whales & other central power brokers.
- This creates more democracy in public goods funding decisions! 🦄

Our secret to getting past the "free rider problem"
Up to 100x matching multipliers on $1 crowdfund contributions
When a project gets popular enough, some pretty amazing matching multiples can be offered. This reinforces the incentive structure of QF as a fundamentally-democratic institution.
What if you could program support for public goods into your community?
Our goal is to align incentives between private goods & public goods.
