Build-n-Earn is a funding program championed by Matic, in collaboration with Gitcoin, to enable developers to create innovative DApps on Matic Network by assisting them with regular monthly grants and dedicated marketing support. The program has gained huge traction within the developer community, with 37 projects currently registered for Build-n-Earn!
Aside from technical support, market promotions and valuable user feedback, Build-n-Earn allows developers to receive a monthly funding allocation from a total pool of $50,000 per month provided by the Matic Foundation. 30% of the reward pool ($15,000) will go into a public Gitcoin CLR matching pool.
This allows community members to show their support for their favorite projects, thereby driving the creation of DApps which the community wants to use and recommend to others.
The first round of voting will run from September 14th to September 29th.
How Does the Voting Process Work?
The reward allocation process will consist of two parts:
1) Community voting with CLR Matching on Gitcoin
2) Review by a panel of experts
The voting process will incorporate inputs from the developer community and the wider audience to decide on the funding allocation for 30% of the total pool ($15,000), which will be determined by community voting. The Matic team will evaluate the applicable DApps based on pre-decided criteria (see FAQs) to determine the allocation of the leftover 70% ($35,000) of the pool.
For the community voting process, we have partnered with Gitcoin. They are the biggest platform for crowdfunding and freelance developers for open-source software projects generating $6,360,731 of gross marketplace value for the builders in the blockchain space. 30% of the funding per month, i.e. $15,000, will be reserved by the Matic Foundation for the matching pool to fund DApps eligible for the program via the Gitcoin Grants program.
The public (community) voting will happen on Gitcoin (click here to see the list of registered Build-n-Earn DApps on Gitcoin). 30% of the monthly pool ($15,000) will be utilized to match the funds raised by individual projects donated by the community.
This allows community members to show their support for their favorite projects and turn their small donations into a larger pool of funds.
