$175K in matching. Contribute today! Welcome, Gitcoiners, to the 6th round of Gitcoin Grants. We hope you like the makeover!
Welcome, Gitcoiners, to the 6th round of Gitcoin Grants. We hope you like the makeover!
In Gitcoin Grants Round 5, we raised a total of $492K amongst Ethereum tech, Ethereum media and COVID projects. This was our largest round ever, accounting for almost half of the $1.2MM we’ve raised in the last year.
As Vitalik explains in his detailed retrospective, grants on Gitcoin are making steps towards the maturity stage. We’re beginning to see projects that consistently create value for the Ethereum community, earn trust and truly consistent funds to continue and grow heir mission.
Grants Round 5 also marked our first exploration into initiatives beyond Ethereum, through our health projects. It was definitely a leap we strongly believed in and the results were definitely encouraging. This continues in Round 6 with Crypto For Black Lives.
We hope, with your help, Gitcoin Grants Round 6 will be better than ever.
Starting June 15th, all the way to July 3rd, we’re hosting Grants Round 6, with a total funding pool of $175k.
So here’s what’s coming up, in a grant near you: 3 matching pools for grantees within these 3 categories.
As always, all donations will be matched using the quadratic matching formula, which prioritizes individual voices over dollars. This means that a $1 donation can result in matches of 40-50x or even more if many others also donate just $1.
The Gitcoin Grants site has gotten a fresh makeover which we can’t wait for you to see. Aside from a slick new overall UI, the biggest new feature is ‘bulk checkout’ which lets you add all the grants you’d like to contribute to into a cart and make one transactionto contribute to them all!
Here’s a full list of features we’re testing for this round: we’d love your feedback if you see anything else we can improve.
We’ve all been through a lot lately and this year has highlighted, even more than expected, the power of communities around the world – the power to heal, the power to change, the power to nurture.
We hope Gitcoin Grants offers you a chance to connect with projects you appreciate, to give back, and to receive thanks for what you’ve done. Get involved in Grants Round 6 and let’s all grow better, together.
