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.
