Gitcoin is a community of thousands of BUIDLers that are looking for projects.
Because of the strong community of Ethereum developers looking to build skills, develop relationships, and earn some ETH, it’s never been easier to incentivize work in Open Source Software to the crowd.
Did you know that Gitcoin is not just bounties? In addition to bounties, we also offer the ability to send Tips to any github username.
Tipping is a lightweight way to reward a contributor to your repo without having to know their Ethereum address.
Tips are great for:
- Showing appreciation to your community
- Airdropping tokens to those who add value to your project
- Building relationships with your contributors
To show you how easy it is, we invite you to follow along and Send a Tip via this tutorial.
How to Send a Tip
Prerequisites: The first thing you’ll need is Metamask. Install that in your browser.
Step 1: Go to the Gitcoin Tip page and click “Send Ether”.
Step 2: Fill in the form and press “Send”.
Step 3: Confirm the transaction in Metamask.
The user will be notified on Github and via email.
You have now quickly transferred value to another Github username in a safe, quick, and easy manner!
