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.


Feedback is a gift. Here are some anonymized reviews left from & to users on the Gitcoin network

Did not accurately assess the bounty value, but agreed to pay the full amount after completing partial work. Once the work was completed, took a very long time, multiple pings, and eventually intervention from GitCoin staff to have the payment sent. | | several days ago

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:

    44.0% burn covered by revenue

    56.0% burn not covered by revenue

By & For 3-Dimensional Humans

Each user of Gitcoin is a 3-dimensional human, with a different background, skillset, life experience, communication patterns, and biases. Our Mission is to provide new & better economic opportunities to 3-dimensional humans, inclusive of all cultures and geographies, across the world. BUIDLing is global!

We've invested in some fun & engaging tools to allow you to represent yourself fully online, like an avatar builder, a fully customizable profile, and a social network share it with! Want to get started customizing your profile?
