๐Ÿš€Project Tips for Success

How projects in a quadratic funding round can lead to success

Quadratic funding is a great opportunity to get extra funding for your project through the matching pool, but your communityโ€™s donations determine how much of the pool you get, with more unique donors getting you a bigger share of the matching pool. That means you NEED to onboard people to donate to your project.

Tips to having a successful round

  • Consistently post and cross-collaborate

  • Spend time onboarding your community to donate and verifying their wallet

  • Be very clear on why funding you will be worth it and your progress up to date

  • Ensure that your Potlock profile clearly explains what you are working to achieve and why people should donate. An optimized project includes:

    • A clear project description.

    • A nice profile image and banner

    • Regular posts on NEAR Social

    • Description of past funding sources

    • Links to team accounts

    • Relevant githubs (if open source)

    • Photos, videos, and/or valid external links to provide visual context.
