  • Anti-Sybil Legos by j-cook

    This post gives a high-level outline of the way FDD is thinking about composable anti-Sybil legos, as Gitcoin moves to the protocol-based grants system. Essentially, Gitcoin depends on Gitcoin Grants, and Gitcoin Grants depends on effective sybil defense. Right now, there are human-powered elements to sybil defense, such as human reviews and using data science tools. In the future, FDD aims to create modular “anti-sybil legos”, that “can also be forked and recombined in creative ways in other projects, making them useful across the whole of Web3, not just within Gitcoin”.
