Introducing Stewards Governance

Gitcoin username : CPix18

ETH Address : collinpixley.eth

Statement of Intent : I’m interested in becoming a Gitcoin Steward because I’ve seen first hand how big of a role Gitcoin has played in the development of Ethereum over the past couple years. Quests were a great way to learn about projects, networking through Gitcoin helped me meet people I would’ve otherwise never met, and quadratic funding really changed how I viewed funding public goods. After participating in several rounds as a donor its been amazing to watch the projects/people grow to where they are today. Gitcoin has helped me in a lot of ways so I want to do what I can to give back to such a great team/community.

Qualifications : I got involved in crypto in fall of 2016, mainly just buying some btc and eth reading the white papers. I was in college at the time studying sport management but once I fell down the Ethereum rabbit hole there was no going back. I spent most of my time in 2016 and 2017 just learning the basics and wasn’t until 2018-2019 I really started to interact with smart contracts. I have a basic understanding of solidity and python but my real value add is more on the end user side of things. I like to teach people how to use Ethereum to do something they otherwise wouldn’t be able to. I’ve deployed a few smart contracts on mainnet, interacted with a lot of commonly used dapps/protocols, participated in The Graph Curator Program, and now spend most of my time helping people use Ethereum (wallets, basic apps, DeFi, NFTs, L2s, etherscan).

Statement of intent: Gitcoin is a powerful force for public goods funding in the Ethereum ecosystem. But maybe more importantly, it’s a real stakes experiment for building sybil resistant identity. If we view identity as the core goal, the stakes are much higher than securing a few million $ in QF - we’re determining standards of citizenship. I think the Gitcoin community is well positioned to meet this challenge with rigor and integrity, and I would like to contribute however I can.

Qualifications: I worked in consumer lending until early 2020, where I gained considerable first hand experience of identity fraud schemes and mitigation strategies. I’ve been working full time in the Ethereum governance ecosystem for around the past year; presently I’m working with the MakerDAO risk team as well as withtally.com.

Statement of Intent :
I’m interested in participating in Gitcoin Steward Governance because both myself and the project I’m work on (Mask.io) have witnessed the early days on Gitcoin and the beauty of it. Personally I’m strong believer of Open Web and FOSS, and been developing in this field for years. I feel the current Open Web ecosystem and FOSS community are lack of projects like Gitcoin and would love to contribute all I can to help pushing the limit of open web.

Qualifications :
I’ve been involved in FOSS/ Open Web movement since high school as engineer and independent journalist. So far I have been working actively in Ethereum/Open Web ecosystem (mainly through Mask.io ). I’m also active contributor of RadicalxChange (especially about the QV/QF) and was mentor of RxC fellowship. I’ve also co-drafted Anti-996 license and been helping FOSS for many years. Sujitech (related with Mask.io ) also maintained largest instances of Mastodon and Fediverse, sponsored many open source events, and is member of ECMA/TC39.

Statement of Intent : I’m interested in participating as a Gitcoin Steward because I want to support digital public goods and contribute my expertise and influence to help Gitcoin move towards complete decentralization.

Qualifications : I’m the cofounder of IoTeX Network and ranked top 30 on gitcoin’s leaderboard. I started as a cryptographer (500+ citations, member of IEEE/IACR, editor for crypto conferences&journals), and an early community member of Bitcoin@Canada. In 2012-2016, I led teams at Google and Uber to build cryptography and security/privacy tools, some of which are contributed to the open-source community. In 2017, I cofounded IoTeX to really focus on the real-world information marketplace (RIM) on top of the high-performance and decentralized public blockchain which we built from scratch, running in production with 100+ global delegates and already processed 13M txs. I am full of experience and passion for engaging with dev and gitcoin communities. Also, I am an angel investor and mentor for some well-known crypto protocols/dapps and active in crpyto circles.

Statement of Intention / Your Values & Reasons for Joining
I’m interested in joining the Stewardship program because I’m a big fan of the Gitcoin community and work that the team has developed in the past few years. I’m a web3 dev and thanks to the Gitcoin Quests I got a lot of knowledge in Ethereum.

I see a need for improving the Funding Rounds process by detecting fraud and collusion. I’m not a pro in quadratic funding, but I know that collusion is a serious problem that needs to be solved. I’m here because I would like to get involved in a more equitable and fair distribution of public resources.

Your Web3 Qualifications / Skills
Since I came back to Brazil in the end of 2018, I delivered many free events to the developer community locally. I started a Meetup Group called EthDevs Sao Paulo: and a community chat channel on Telegram called BlockchainJuju where I post all interesting reading/material and events. I believe in the power of community building and I can see that developers empower each other with web3 knowledge.
I participated in Hackathons(EthBerlin, EthWaterloo, Eth Denver) and online (DragonQuest/ ConsensysHealth - STOP COVID19) and got hooked into web3 development. In the DAO community, I got Meta Gamma Delta deployed (was the initial summoner and learned tons with governance and shareholder value discussions internally).

And thanks to that I was invited to be a part of Meta Cartel, Raid Guild, MetaFam and I’m very active in the DAO Haus ecosystem.
When I’m not doing community work, I’m actively programming. I’m a dart developer, big fan of flutter.

The most fascinating part about Gitcoin/Blockchain communities in general, is that there are so many geniuses and even more fun and inspiring people here, we share, and learn. I told my son - “you went to meet up (get free pizza, learn with warm support from talents). When you grow, you will provide pizza and help other people to learn”

That’s how a grassroot Joe like myself start to connect, learn, then share to bring in more people.

I am not very active on Gitcoin (because already so many geniuses there), but I was able to help quite a few average Joe and Jills to gradually setup their crypto strategy (mining, regular depo, coding and earn eth, learning) and getting exposure since ~2013 (not an easy task)!
I am a bloke but I onboard more Jills (except my wife) :tipping_hand_woman:

Buidl and hodl (also I spendl), envision it will change the world since like 12 years ago and 6 years ago. So I spend most of my time connecting the degen world to the routine physical world, where our neighbours and friends and co-workers are.

My exposure as a grassroot crypto user and IT professional will allow me to have input to stewards governance, and we can get better exposure to Chinese crypto communities.

My Web3 Qualifications / Skills

Data analyst, buidler, spendler

Some of my buildl:
15 hours video tutorial/examples on data analytics (a bit is for blockchain data), [recent Solana tools]/solana_batch /fulltextsearchanalytics

I wrote Bitcoin for dummies (in Chinese) since 2013: btctalk index.php?topic=182135.0

I buy stuff (not pizza) using BTC/ETH since then ( :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :hot_face:)

Now I also work with some of the best KOL such as Dayou 王大有 in Chinese crypto community. Below is his profile in English that I created with his consent (I am his diplomat and Twitter/Discord operator):

a KOL that always be open and transparent, influence reaches 50,000+ actual crypto users including ~1000 paid subscribers

How both of us differ from other opinion leaders, is that always consider how the influence would impact people who may take my action/thoughts as investment advice (for example, DaYou created the ‘Hodlers of XVS club’ while the token was ~$2 as can see the strategic position it is on Binance Smart Chain (sidechain of ETH), 900 holders joined because of Dayou’s detailed analysis, and most of them hold it until it reached $100.) But Dayou and I always make sure people don’t follow KOL advice blindly (always ask people to learn through the way to analyse the pros/cons of the project and how the project team will realise their vision, not just follow cz/vb to ape in. Dayou is also one of earliest and the most influential evangelist of BadgerDAO.

Let’s connect and share!

意向声明 / 我的价值观和加入的原因

一般来说,Gitcoin/Blockchain社区最吸引人的地方是,这里有这么多天才,甚至更多有趣和鼓舞人心的人,我们分享,学习。我告诉我的儿子–“你去聚会(获得免费比萨,在免费支持下学习)。当你成长时,你会提供披萨,帮助其他人学习”

这就是像我一样的草根如何开始连接、学习、开放和分享,以带来更多的人。
我在Gitcoin上不是很活跃(因为那里已经有很多天才了),但我能够帮助一些普通的Joe和Jills逐步建立他们的加密货币战略(挖矿、定期存款、编码和赚取eth、学习),并从~2013年开始获得曝光(不是一件容易的事 令人惊讶的是,我是男性,但我能够股东更多的小姐姐

因此,我把大部分时间花在连接degen世界和常规物理世界上,我们的邻居、朋友和同事在那里。

我想,这将改变12年前和6年前的世界。我也能够让一些普通的乔伊人加入加密货币空间–相当大的努力!

我作为一个基层的加密货币用户和IT专业人士,将使我能够为管理人的治理提供有用的意见,而且我们可以更好地接触中国的加密货币社区。

I care deeply about the funding of public goods, and have long believed that there are many components of need within any society that create a net benefit for all participants but are not ones that can be safely tied to a for-profit pursuit.

But, I also understand the complexity in managing the oversight of any system that attempts to represent and hold up the voices of a diverse community.

I’ve long been passionate about Gitcoin and the challenges around funding public goods in the space and have been an active participant around conversations in how we deal with challenges such as manipulation of quadratic function.

During this discussions I grew concerned that often these solutions are over-engineered and we reduce the actions of people down to numbers in a machine and forget to take into account the different behavioral patterns that others may have in different socio-economic and cultural lots of life.

My hope in partaking in Gitcoin governance is to be an active voice in representing under represented individuals and preventing our public goods infrastructure from becoming a cultural monolith, or popularity contest.

Statement of Intent : I am interested in participating in Gitcoin Governance because I love their mission to push “open-source forward”. Gitcoin has onboarded thousands of developers to the Web3 world and has added immense value to the Ethereum community. They play a pivotal role in growing Web3 and open source communities, and I would love to support them in their mission by being a steward.

Qualifications : I have been part of the Ethereum community for the last two years, leading developer relations at Polygon for a considerable time now. I have helped organize many hackathons and developer grant programs to onboard developers to the Ethereum community and have always supported their growth.

Some of the groups I have worked with apart from my role at Polygon are nfDAO, MGD, Panvala, and Metacartel.

Statement of Intention / Your Values & Reasons for Joining:
I’m very excited to see how decentralized governance and algorithmic-aided governance played out in the amazing Gitcoin community and see how the community maneuver future attacks and hard governance decisions. :fire: :fire: :fire:

Having been an academic researcher before this, this is the first time I am able to participate and help out in a decentralize algorithm-aided governance in the wild. I have great faith and interest in web3 projects and I believe Gitcoin is not only vital for the Ethereum ecosystems but also a extremely important case study for other web 3 projects.

Since relatively new to the gitcoin and Ethereum ecosystems in general. I’m excited to learn as I go and contribute other aspect from academic research perspective in data-science and interaction design.

Your Web3 Qualifications / Skills:
I’m a academic researcher in Social computing and has been working in design research and social computing labs in Stanford, UW and soon in CMU.

Statement of Intention / Your Values & Reason for Joining:
I’ve known the Gitcoin team for a long time, and have always been one of the first users to try out any of their new products. I want to help the project scale to become a powerhouse for Web3 development.

This past year normalized working from home. I believe there is going to be increasing demand for bounty work and Gitcoin is perfectly poised to onboard and match all the incoming talent with the rapidly increasing number of Web3 projects in need of microservices.

Likewise, Gitcoin’s innovative Grants curation, voting, and matching models have enabled dozens of new projects to get off the ground. These projects then pay it forward to the next round of projects.

Gitcoin is turning the Web3 ecosystem into a self-funding organism capable of growing the parts it needs and funding them. It’s a very exciting future, but not without it’s challenges. I hope to help Gitcoin in navigate these challenges.

What Web3 Qualifications / Skills I have:
I’ve been running the Blockchain Education Network for 3 years and have overseen the deployment of our own various Web3 initiatives (BENcoin, BEN NFTs, decentralized certificates, DAOs, meta-delegates) to aid in our mission to incentivize and gamify education. I’m familiar with the requirements and challenges with running these types of projects.

Since BEN has had our own Grant, I’m very familiar with the Gitcoin experience from the grantee side and the donor side. I can leverage my experience into providing useful insight and guidance for the further development of Gitcoin.

As the Americas Ecosystem Lead at Ontology Network, I’ve done extensive work with various partners to integrate and advocate for decentralized identity solutions, which is a direction Gitcoin is going towards.

I hope to increase my contribution in building the Gitcoin ecosystem.

Statement of Intention / My Values & Reason for Joining:

I am interested in joining the stewardship program because first and foremost I believe that open-source funding is likely the most important effort in software development.

Of course all the projects being built have immense utility to the wider community, but simply put many of our projects would not be possible without Gitcoin and the support that has made our development possible.

Without Gitcoin / Kernel’s contributions, the chance that my project, Swivel, would be where it is today would be low. And further there are dozens of projects in a similar situation having been incubated or perpetually funded by donations through Gitcoin. It is absolutely insane and serves as a testament to all that is possible with properly allocated funding and community effort.

What Web3 Qualifications / Skills I have:

I am currently the sole maintainer for a number of open-source web3 and web2 projects, am a Gitcoin Kernel mentor, ETHGlobal hackathon judge, etc… however beyond all this, I am currently the Founder & CEO of Swivel Finance, a project that came out of Gitcoin Kernel’s Genesis cohort.

At the start of the cohort I was just a hackathon addict, psychology graduate, and professional MOBA player (HOTS/LOL) with little hope of my day to day life being what it is today. So while I have plenty of technical and financial expertise surrounding financial derivatives and cash-flow markets within defi, I really feel that my largest value add is what I can provide based on my lived experience transitioning from a degenerate gamer. (Off the back of the community support that Gitcoin provided)

I’d love to provide Gitcoin with all the assistance my expertise and experience can give!
