This is request for someone to come up with a new decentralized experience for creating Gitcoin-style avatars.
As we progressively decentralize Gitcoin, the Gitcoin Holdings company is interested in decentralizing the avatar builder.
We build the avatar builder so that users could celebrate their uniqueness and have a cool way of showing off their individuality on the site. As
We also feel that there was a missed oipportunity here to leverage our art assets to ride the PFP boom, and perhaps fund public goods with the ETH received.
An ideal candidate would be have the following principles:
- Simplicity - products that do ONE THING and do it WELL.
- Antifragility - Well-documented Decentralized products that our community can run without the centralized company.
- Modularity - products that easily unix-style interoperate with each other.
An ideal proposal would
- (at a minimum) 1:1 replicate the centralized experience at
https://gitcoin.co/onboard/profile?steps=avatarbut store the code/avatars in a decentralize way.
- (at a maximum) create a new novel way to make these avatar’s into PFPs and fund public goods with them.

Please submit your proposal as a comment on the gov forum thread.
