Gitcoin and Metalabel collaborated to release GITCOIN PRESENTS: The Quadratic Funding Collection as an open and limited edition on-chain record to commemorate the paper “Liberal Radicalism” – a paper that introduced a concept for a more equitable and pluralistic way to fund public goods, known as quadratic funding. This project successfully raised over $1M dollars and is a tribute to the impact of Quadratic Funding.
Gitcoin Grants Program is an initiative that empowers everyday believers in web3 to drive funding toward what they believe matters, with the impact of individual donations being magnified by the use of the Quadratic Funding (QF) distribution mechanism. To date over 270K individuals have helped direct over $60M to fund over 3,700 projects.
