Digest #43: Gitcoin x Unicef partnership, Alpha Rounds, upcoming Twitter Spaces and more! :turkey:

Builders, we’d like to hear from you! We are working to create programs and protocols that better serve our builder community.

If you are a builder or a Web3 project founder, please take 90 seconds to fill out this two-question survey. Thank you!


As we head into Winter, GitcoinDAO looks to 2023, with upcoming “Alpha Rounds” and hackathons, a grants protocol launch in Spring, and an exciting new partnership with Unicef!

Gitcoin has partnered with Unicef to run an Alpha Round to fund projects that address gaps in financial access, education and literacy, environment, and public health. This round will be the first of five test rounds run on our new grants protocol (currently in closed beta) as part of Gitcoin’s Alpha test season.

There is a Twitter Space happening on Tuesday, 12/6, to kick off the Alpha Round with Unicef. Follow the Gitcoin Twitter account here.

In DAO news, we recently approved five-out-of-five budget requests for GitcoinDAO workstreams.

With the bear market, some Stewards and community members have expressed concern over the DAO’s spending, and have expressed the desire for the DAO to reign in costs as we go into 2023, an indefinite bear market, and a looming global economic recession.

With the acceptance of all workstream budget requests, the DAO will continue to operate as usual in S16, preparing for the launch of our upcoming Alpha Test Rounds, and continuing to build grants protocols.

Additionally GitcoinDAO continues to support Web3 builders via hackathons and initiatives, including:
