Joe Dominance Index

Gitcoin is a double sided market of funders and developers. In order to jump start the marketplace and dogfood our own product, we've funded some work on the platform ourselves. The Joe Dominance Index (a portmeanteau of the Bitcoin Dominance Index and the name of Gitcoin's largest investor, Consensys's CEO Joe Lubin) is a measure of the percentage of work on the platform that is funded by us.

The Path to Break-Even

We believe that companies, even those in the blockchain-ecosystem, should fully prove out their founder-mission-product-market fit & have revenue. We believe that software developers at Gitcoin Core need to put food on the table, pay their mortages, and buy extra hard drives -- and that we can do it while living our values; especially without become a rent-seeking-monopolistic intermediary. We're a little crazy like that! 😜 As such, we are founding members of the ETHMagicians Business Models Ring and are practicing what we preach; building a network that makes money to cover it's burn. Follow our path to a breakeven monthly runrate below:

    77.0% burn covered by revenue

    23.0% burn not covered by revenue
