Gitcoin Grants Round 11
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!)
Why register for the GR11 Hackathon?
- The GR10 Hackathon was Gitcoin biggest ever one, with 4600 participants, 21 sponsors, and over $350,000 worth of bounties.
- Gitcoin will host a series of webinars, workshops, and community discussions for the grants round and hackathon together with industry leaders, grantees, hackathon sponsors, matching pool funders, and more. Whether you're joining to learn new technologies, meet others in our community, chill and/or shill - there will be something for you!
- Developers are encouraged and provided guidance to convert their hackathon project(s) into grants for future rounds.
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!
What is Gitcoin Grants anyway?
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 9 saw $1,380,000 in contributions and $500,000 in matched funds distributed across 812 projects. (Bonus - check out Vitalik's retro)
Grants Round 10 saw $1,100,000 in contributions and $700,000 in matched funds distributed across 1658 projects.
