Gitcoin Grants 18
You may not be familiar with Gitcoin Grants, which I talked about in the last mail.
Gitcoin Grants is a public funding platform. It started with the open source culture: donating to support a project. The name “Gitcoin” familiarize software developers with “Git”, the most popular version control system we use everyday, and “Coin” implies funding.
With quadratic funding, Gitcoin Grants expanded the traditional donating system with “donating as voting”, and projects with more individual votes will receive more funds from “matching pool”, by external source.
But how to define “individual” without the burden of verifying real world identities? That’s why Gitcoin Passport I mentioned comes to play.
Donation gradually becomes the funding source of some open source projects. And it does work pretty well for projects like ethers.js.
I started donating through Gitcoin Grants just from last round (Beta Round). Gratefully, I submitted our community project, Web3Matters Weekly, and it went live on Gitcoin Grants 18!
Web3Matters Weekly is a community-driven newsletter, and our team of six dedicated editors curates web3-related content to the greater Chinese world every week:
I’ve been working on this project for more than ten months. If you’d like to support our work, please consider donating. All funding raised through Gitcoin will also be exclusively dedicated to supporting our curated content authors.
