Kudos is a way of showing your appreciation for another Gitcoin member.
It's also a way to showcase special skills that a member might have, such as Pythonista, or Design Star. Kudos tokens can be bought and sold on the Kudos Marketplace.
Gitcoin has partnered with Cellarius Universe to create original collectible badges that feature Cellarius Art style.
Cellarius is an original transmedia cyberpunk franchise that leverages blockchain technology and user-generated assets to createa a collaborative, fan-curated story.
In essence, the Cellarius Universe is a future-oriented mythology. It is also a collective storytelling project whose content and contours will be shaped by its community.
Cellarius straddles the familiar cyberpunk themes of a dystopian and troubled future while maintaining a more optimistic outlook on humanity’s destiny and place in the cosmos.
I am a long time graphic designer, art director and product designer. A fancy way of saying "I am moving the mouse or pencil around, playing with shapes and colors." I like getting lost in everything art, photography, design and architecture and their history. When I don't do any of the above, I walk, travel or sometimes play a game.
Kudos can be gifted to you by any other Gitcoin member. You can also purchase Kudos through the marketplace and send it to any other Gitcoin user. When you send a Kudos, they receive an email notication. After they accept the Kudos, it will be minted on the blockchain and delivered to its recipient.
ERC-721 is a standard developed by the Ethereum Foundation that can be used to create Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT's). The most well known example of this is Cryptokitties, but there are many other examples. This project is Gitcoin's foray into the world of NFT's, and we named it after something that's our favorite part of working together - Kudos. Want to integrate this ERC 721 into your Dapp?

It's a common practice for on-site teams to be able to celebrate the work they've done together after shipping. We wanted to create a similar experience for distributed, open-source, teams to celebrate their wins and to celebrate each other.
Kudos is a way to celebrate the relationships that have been built. Kudos is meant to bootstrap reputation on Gitcoin.
How very astute of you to notice that.
To mint a new kudos, follow these steps.
If & once the demand for kudos increases, we would like to create a decentralized marketplace where Artists can make a living by creating new Kudos art. The above minting process is a stopgap.
When a new Kudos is created, the ETH sent during that minting process is directly sent to the illustrator who created the Kudos artwork. In some cases, Gitcoin may also take a 10% fee to help keep the lights on.
When you send a kudos, you making an attestion about an attribute of the person who controls a web3 address.
Technically speaking, the attestation is an Ethereum transaction of a non-fungible token (NFT) being sent from a sender to a receiver
When you send a kudos through the Gitcoin UI, you are sending the NFT to a secure proxy web3 address.
The recipient can decide to accept it or reject it.
For convenience, the recipient may elect to automatically accept Kudos in the future to forego the acceptance process.
We made this kudos just for you!
Kudos is governed by two things:
1. The state & functionality of the smart contract.
2. Social norms.
By virtue of the state & functionality of the smart contract (1), you can absolutely send a Kudos to yourself. Just like you can stand in front of a group of people and publicly compliment yourself.
By virtue of social norms (2), you might think twice.
Kudos are a recurring revenue stream for artists. Anyone can create a kudos! To create a new kudos, click here and follow the instructions.
