We will continue to post major updates here on the forum but we are now chatting in the Gitcoin Discord in the :chains:sybil-defenders channel, and the grants are now being transparently reviewed in the :cowboy_hat_face:grants-review channel for those interested in that substream:

:crossed_swords: If you are interested in participating, please add which area you would like to contribute to in this Excel spreadsheet - under the column “Substream Commits: Working Group Ops & Comms, Grant Evaluations, ML/Data Science” :

@Jiajia is working on a mapping for the sub stream roles and contacts, will post when she is finished - thank you Jiajia and everyone for your interest in joining us! :pray:

Hi everyone and thank you for your interest! To join the group, receive invites and participate, please fill out the spreadsheet above, review the ed workshop/orientation powerpoint above, and have a look at the reading list.

We are looking for committed stewards to support in working group ops & comms, the grant approvals review process and for those with a data science background - the ML algo/tech pipeline.

We have a meeting today at 4pm EST / 10pm CET focused on the grant approvals process and upcoming GG Round 10 - here is the agenda:

  • Review Notion Setup for Workstream
    • Overview of pipelines & objectives - Define, Detect, Evaluate, Sanction
    • How to participate in each
  • Review Grant Approval Process
    • Topology of bad grants & gray areas
    • How might we create a clear policy for GR11?
    • Separating PLATFORM from ECOSYSTEM
    • Q & A
  • Review Sybil Attack Mitigation Process
    • Topology of Attacks
    • Preventative Measures
      • Minimum Contribution Amount
      • Trust Bonus Requirement
  • Open Discussion - Potentially a 10 minute Mural brainstorm
    • What are the high impact, low difficulty adjustments we could make to improve the legitimacy of Gitcoin Grants?
    • What do you think we could do better or different for DEFINE, DETECT, EVALUATE, SANCTION pipelines?
    • What would a healthy and organized workstream look like?

Next Tuesday, 9am EST / 3pm CET we will have a 2nd educational workshop/orientation for the ML pipeline.

Again, please indicate your interest/experience/etc. on the spreadsheet.

Have a lovely day and look forward to working with you all!
