Community contributions will be matched by a Neo-allocated pool of US $101,300 in value. The platform uses a quadratic funding mechanism implemented in an N3 smart contract to encourage the fair distribution of funds based on where the collective community finds value. Votes can be submitted until June 28, when community contributions close, and final results will be announced.
