Statement of Intention / My values & reason for joining:
I am from the MIPT, which actively participates in the life of the Gitcoin community.
I am interested to join Gitcoin Stewardship program and governance processes, because I find this project amazing. My values are perfectly aligned with the broader goals of Gitcoin - a super-decentralized, community-owned way of managing. I’ve been a fan of Gitcoin ever since I found out about it, which was very early in my crypto journey. I believe that we should push Gitcoin’s open source development mission further, find and train new developers, and expand the Ethereum network.

I was engaged in the promotion of projects, namely, started with a simple campaign and ended up with the introduction of new functions and technologies in scientific laboratories. I have been engaged in development of projects Rarible.
I have great faith and interest in web3 projects, and I believe that Gitcoin is not only vital for the Ethereum ecosystem, but also extremely important for other web3 projects. I look forward to learning as I go along and contributing to other aspects of research in data science and interaction design.

I am ready to answer any questions anytime.

I enthusiastically found some friends who are building GITCOIN together, and we held meetings. Discuss Gitcoin related matters together, and actively guide more people to participate in community building. Discuss hackmoney with my software development friend component team offline and share what I have learned. “Perfect world” Why can’t I give newcomers a chance?

I love the blockchain industry and hope to get more deeply involved in the blockchain industry and the Ethereum ecosystem. I’ve been involved in the crypto industry for five years now, and the various aspects of the industry have become part of my life.

I am very interested in Gitcoin DAO. Although there are many DAO Ethereum communities out there, their governance seems to be a long way from the DAO I imagined. An important part of this is that participation in DAOs is currently not high enough. And Gitcoin DAO’s Stewards can solve this problem to a large extent, which is groundbreaking, and I don’t want to miss the opportunity to participate in this organization.

In addition, over the past two years, we have established an ENS Chinese community:, and we have done a lot of work for the popularization and application of ENS in China. I myself have a very clear understanding of the principles of ENS and its place in the Ethereum ecosystem.

I will continue to explore in this industry, I hope I can join.

Statement of Intention / Your Values & Reasons for Joining:

I’m interested in being a Gitcoin steward because I want to help support the growth of digital public goods and gain more hands-on experience with DAO governance.

I’m a big believer in the concept of “open-source-everything,” that we should strive to make all of humanity’s critical hardware, software, and socio-technical infrastructure open-source.

For now I’m most interested in understanding and determining what kinds of public goods the community cares about. In the future I’d like to become more involved with conversations around meta-governance and progressive decentralization.

I’m also working to help spin up a DAO investment and support fund focused on long-term DAO infrastructure and am interested in understanding ways in which GTC (and other governance tokens) may accrue value.

I believe that DAOs hold enormous potential to help humanity coordinate in more efficient, transparent, and equitable ways. I’m eager to play an active role in shaping the future of Gitcoin while gaining practical experience working with DAOs!

Your Web3 Qualifications / Skills:

  • Researching and investing in crypto since 2012. Early investor in ETH and participant in “The DAO” along with other early DAOs (MakerDAO, 0xDAO…)

  • Writing about crypto since 2015 on Medium and my personal blog

  • Regularly using and experimenting with Web 3 apps ( Gnosis Safe, Colony, Enyzme Finance, Augur, Audius, etc.)

  • As a longtime member of the crypto space, and an even longer advocate for homeless/impoverished individuals, I have been seeking ways to merge the two interests of mine. After spending years with several people in the homeless community in my area, I have learned how talented and innovative some of these people are. I intend to onboard these individuals in an effort to allow them to use their skill to build things in this space, while simultaneously allowing for them the opportunity to earn and grow financial stability.
  • I have served as a community rep/ambassador for over 6 projects, using my skills in intrapersonal communication, community growth and aggregation, and social interactivity, to help strengthen and grow this community.

I would love to be a steward, as I’ve been seeking a way to become an active participant in this community for years, and think this would allow me such an opportunity–specifically in the realm of Public Good.

Statement of Intention: As we transition to an increasingly digital society, our economic and cultural interactions will be dictated by the technological standards underpinning our applications. I believe that if we are truly embarking on an age with programmable money and assets, where our economic and cultural systems run on software, it makes sense to re-architecture the the way in which we fund public goods in order to incentivize open source as the default way of building things. Gitcoin does just that, and it is my intention to help the DAO succeed in this mission.

Statement of Intention / Your Values & Reasons for Joining: I’d like to join to support the Ethereum and Web3 ecosystem, and especially Gitcoin because of a number of reasons. I resonate strongly with the ethos of broadening participating in crypto outside of speculative investment use cases (which are great, but not the big unlock for the general population). Gitcoin has pioneered here with a number of models, supporting so many Web3 projects along the way. I’d love to play a role to support it’s future as a Delegate/Steward.
Your Web3 Qualifications / Skills: I’m currently actively participating in the formation of BountiesDAO, which is a DAO that is trying to make bounties flourish through the StandardBounties contracts. I’m also building a toolkit to help individuals and project owners that want to use crypto bounties to get work done. Before this, I’ve tinkered in crypto and written about web3 for a few years. All said, I’m actively learning along the way.

Hey folks, adding an intro here, really looking forward to working with the public goods funding workstream!

Statement of Intention / Your Values & Reasons for Joining

My values have been developed in my work and entrepreneurial journey building educational, community-based products in the education, blockchain, and wellness industry. I deeply believe in designing better systems to create a more equitable world.

After going through Gitcoin’s Kernel Fellowship Block 3, I have grown even more optimistic about the direction of the industry as a whole. I’m certain that Gitcoin is one of the places that people will be looking at first to find the infinite players looking to build long-term in the space. As a steward I’d like to support Gitcoin in building and growing a healthy community.

My focus is on the long-term success of the crypto ecosystem through education, community building, and onboarding non-crypto natives to crypto protocols. I’m a community builder and entrepreneur, and I’ve always been excited about sharing resources about the latest frontier technologies and educating others. My expertise is in building community-based products, marketing, and education.

Your Web3 Qualifications / Skills:

  • I started my explorations and learning in crypto while I was at Blockchain at Berkeley in 2015, I have focused on education in the crypto space.
  • In 2021, I jumped in full-time to work in the crypto industry, I previously worked at The Graph and Hashflow helping grow their communities.
  • I recently completed the Kernel Fellowship Block 3 and started RenaissanceDAO, a decentralized collective of content creators building the future of the web through creator patronage, with a group of 11 people, most of them are other Gitcoin Kernel Fellows. We’ve recently grown to 25+ creators with a total reach of 1+ million people across all social media platforms.
  • I’m a Kernel Community Steward for KB4.
  • My focus at the moment is community building, crypto education, and onboarding people from web2 into web3.
