Important notes & rules

  • Only add whole numbers, no decimals or other characters

  • The total for all categories MUST add up to exactly 100.

  • Each category cannot have an allocation below 3%. This is to ensure every category has at least some funding as categories have been created to cover all forms of ideas and innovation.

  • Voters can only vote once.

  • Casted votes that do not follow the above guide will have ALL votes attached to that voter ID discarded.

  • Community & Outreach

  • Products & Integrations

  • Governance & Identity

  • Development & Infrastructure

Outcome notes

  • Voter power - 1 person 1 vote.

  • Weighted outcome - The outcome from the vote is based on weightings. Values will be aggregated from every vote to work out the final value for each category.

  • Rounded outcome - The final values will be rounded to the nearest whole number. For example, 24.64 would be rounded to a 25% allocation. The total weightings together will equal 100%.
