:seedling: Public Goods Funding

  • As we approach GR13, we’re implementing quadratic funding to ensure that funds are matched to real contributors. Find out how you can increase your trust bonus and make a bigger impact with your funds.

  • Tracking for Grants and Bounties have been set up to identify overlap between the two products.

:rocket: Moonshot Collective

  • Green Pill Podcast Episode 2 with special guest Karl Floersch is live on Spotify, Apple, and wherever you like to listen to podcasts.

  • Want to reward event or meeting participants all at once with tokens? Send them a tip at Tip Party debuted at ETH Denver, and is now live for anyone to use. Reach out to Moonshot Collective devs on Telegram if you’d like to bring Tip Party to your workstream or DAO.

:blue_heart: Fraud Detection & Defense (FDD)

  • This week began a series of workshops to teach 3 DAO contributors to run the Anti-Sybil Operational Process so the DAO can take over work previously done by Blockscience.

  • An app was built for human evaluations of Sybil accounts allowing us to better protect the process from vulnerabilities and allow us to improve on inter-reviewer reliability.

  • The Grant Review Team is going to the backup plan of scaling grants reviews as the Gitcoin Holdings team needs more time to assess legal implications of integrating data to our GIA software built for this purpose.

:art: Merch, Memes & Marketing

  • Memepalooza 6 is happening this Friday. For the first time, we will be partnering with another DAO to host the event, this time welcoming our friends at DeveloperDAO to meme about all things web3 and public goods. We are also continuing our artist spotlight series, featuring MMM Contributor Nanopunk’s artwork and giving away some NFTs during the event.

  • Check out our blog post on the collaboration with Tally, utilizing Gitcoin Aqueduct to automate the funding of public goods and the building of Tally’s community-owned ecosystem.

  • Gitcoin GR13 is just around the corner, a new Grants Verification Score has been implemented to help eliminate bad actors and ensure that funding is more proportionately matched to trusted contributors. Learn more in our blog post.
