Grow Open Source Bounties Hackathons Grants Quests Kudos


Gitcoin Core's mission is our
north star. Our mission is to
Grow & Sustain Open Source.

We Want

Rocket man We want to build a world in which everyone has the financial leverage to leave their job.
We want it to be as easy to find work in software, as it is for an Uber driver to find a ride today.
We want to build a network with aligned incentives, especially between capital & labour.

We Believe

We believe in open standards and fat protocols, and have built Gitcoin with StandardBounties -- an Open, Free, Fair, Bounty Protocol on Ethereum.
We believe that blockchain is a game-changer for funding of Open Source. We believe that Open Source Funding and Open Source Jobs will be built on Open Source Money.
We believe that an ICO and tokenization is not the best business model for our dapp. We do not have a token.
