The grassroots effort to fund Ethereum’s OSS projects
On February 23rd at 5:36PM, EthHub creator Eric Conner sent a tweet. Less than 3 weeks later, $14K had been brought together for Ethereum commons.
I want to spur some @GetGitcoin grants activity.
Willing to match one time Dai grants between 10-100 Dai, up to 1000 Dai.
Just send proof and I’ll match.
Anyone else want to join in some matching?

Less than two weeks later, $14,000 has been committed by 6 donors (some anonymous, some publicly)! It’s been amazing watching it play out over Twitter as the matching contributions come in steadily.
How To Contribute To The Gitcoin Torch
Each donation will be publicly displayed and will contribute towards a future round of CLR matching, a mechanism we describe in further detail here.

A Grateful Gitcoin Team
The Gitcoin team is grateful for a community that gathers together towards the support of our open source commons. We’re continuing to work towards solutions which systematically make it easier to fund open source (and thus, create a stronger, more functional internet).
Until then, grassroots efforts like this show the power of a strong, interested, incentivized community. Let’s grow open source, together.
