Quadratic Voting on Devfolio
Hackathons result in a wide range of projects, and it can be challenging to determine which projects are the most liked by people. Through QV, it can be solved at once.
A mathematically optimal way of voting which goes beyond a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ vote, enabling people to choose the intensity of their preferences. And we decided to implement it at hackathons. Why? Because hackathons result in a wide range of projects, and it can be challenging to determine which projects are the most liked by people. QV enables people to vote for a project depending on how much they like it.
