Gitcoin announces the results of the first-ever quadratically elected Steward Council

December 05, 2022

Gitcoin has elected the next cohort of members to its Gitcoin Stewards Council. The Gitcoin Stewards Council was created in March 2022 as a governance mechanism and has continued to refine the objectives, selection methods, and compensation of selected Gitcoin Steward Council members. 

The objective of this new council is to be an externally connected strategic body that will help Gitcoin improve market sensing ability and to provide feedback on strategy, proposals, and challenges.  

Also new to this cycle, Gitcoin partnered with Snapshot Labs to demonstrate the first-ever quadratically elected DAO Steward Council in a modified format of internal and external representatives. This new council will have one representative from each workstream and 10 externally active web3 leaders. 

The newly elected council will serve its new term until June 3rd, 2023.
