Match Funding Tokens are regular participant tokens that you can claim for free. They are our way of saying thank you for doing things that help us out - referring a friend or colleague, helping us diagnose a bug, or participating in a promotion.
Once you have some Match Funding Tokens on your account, you can claim them whenever you make a purchase. For every token that you purchase, you can claim a match funded token. This will give you two tokens for the price of one.
If you're on an institutional subscription which gives you unlimited tokens, then obviously you don't need them now, but you can store them up in case you need them in future. Plus, by participating in our referral scheme, the friend that you refer still gets the benefit, so it's still worth helping them out!
Jo invites 3 friends to Gorilla who all sign up. Jo gets 20 match funded tokens for each person she refers, so she now has 60 match funded tokens.
Jo now goes to buy 60 tokens for her study. She decides to use her 60 match funded tokens too. Jo gets 120 tokens for the price of 60.
Each of Jo's friends also have 20 match funded tokens to use as they please!
