Funding cycle

What everyone needs to know​

  • Projects can configure funding cycles to create rules to follow over set amounts of time.
  • A funding cycle's parameters can't be changed while it is in progress, but the project owner can propose reconfigurations to an upcoming cycle at any time.
  • Funding cycles roll over automatically. If there is a reconfiguration in place and it has been approved by the current cycle's ballot, it will be used. Otherwise, a copy of the current funding cycle will be used with an updated start time and discounted weight.
  • The mechanics of each project can vary dramatically depending on how its funding cycles are configured over time. Become familiar with how projects work to get a better understanding of how these decisions can be made.
