In general, on average, the people who voted through quadratic voting feel that they don’t have to do strategic voting. It’s like the opposite of gerrymandering because the marginal return and the marginal cost of each vote remains the same. And so, people would vote truthfully and honestly and also share, as much as possible, their ideas about the synergy between the projects. And when the top 20 projects are announced, everybody feels like they have won because, on average, each person votes for five or more projects. So chances are, one of them actually gets selected to the top 20.
