Web3’s tradition of generous grants programs provides a much-needed bulwark for the open web’s dedicated builders: the open source developers, researchers, and thought leaders that allow the ecosystem to thrive.
Gitcoin will launch its first-ever Quadratic Funding round on its new grants protocol (currently in testing) in collaboration with UNICEF’s Office of Innovation from December 9 to December 21.
Gitcoin is evolving
Gitcoin Grants has helped projects from fundamental web3 primitives to organizations spearheading decentralized science research make their mark on the emerging space. The history of Gitcoin Grants is deeply intertwined with the history of Ethereum: from our first deployment of quadratic funding in 2018, we’ve helped countless projects make their grand visions into reality and, in the process, given developers, designers, artists, and builders of all backgrounds the opportunity to pursue values-aligned work sustainably.
