Gitcoin Grants Round 11 Virtual Hackathon. It begins Sept 8th with the biggest matching pool yet, ready to be distributed to the community for funding public goods. Join the Virtual Events category of the Gitcoin Discord to discuss all grants, hacks, and more!
Grants CLR rounds are an experiment in mechanism design, community governance, quadratic funding, and decentralized identity.
Gitcoin want to applaud the Ethereum community, the success of their current and past grantees, and the donors contributing to the future of the Web3 ecosystem.
During each quarterly round, their community rewards the hard work and contributions others have already made, while also funding the projects Gitcoin believe will make the largest impact in the future. During Rounds 8, 9, & 10, they began running "Stacked Events" by pairing a hackathon with the grants round, encouraging the community to support a decentralized future by either building or donating to projects (or both!)
Join to build the future of Web3, learn from online workshops, open new grants, and if you can, help fund great projects that are contributing to the public goods ecosystem.
All workshops and community sessions will be hosted on Airmeet - link and details coming soon!
Check out the Addevent schedule (coming soon) to RSVP and add the Gitcoin Community Calendar to your personal Google calendar to see when new events are happening!
If you're a new or returning hacker but haven't ventured out to the Grants side of the Gitcoin platform, you're in for a treat! Gitcoin Grants is an experiment where people can fund their open source projects for public benefit with QF (Quadratic Funding) matching contributions from Gitcoin’s Matching Fund, sponsored by donors in the Web3 ecosystem. By using QF, even a $1 donation to a project you support can earn them a match of 10-100x that amount.
Grants Round 8 saw $555,000 in contributions and $500,000 in matched funds distributed across 566 projects.
Grants Round 10 saw $1,100,000 in contributions and $700,000 in matched funds distributed across 1658 projects.
