As I’ve come in to help work on governance engagement strategy together with Gitcoin, I wanted to look at the mission and vision for the project in an effort to align and update the trajectory & the purpose of this DAO.
As you well know, the Gitcoin mission has been focused around building and funding public goods. As the DAO continues its journey to accomplish and strengthen this, I would like to propose the following as a better crystallised goal and modus operandi.
Gitcoin DAO builds for human thriving.
Gitcoin’s vision is to establish an empowering, open and collaborative space where individuals and communities can access resources in proportion to their value creation independent of their geographic location, education, background or offline identity.
By creating collaborative, decentralized funding mechanisms, Gitcoin has become the natural choice for seeding and supporting digital public goods. The DAO enables building for the public, by the public by helping individuals and communities start, fund, and scale open source projects.
All thoughts, comments and responses to this are welcome and encouraged.
