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.

NAME is an amazing platform for developers and extremely fun to build for... The team is also really great, they are always on Discord to answer your questions and respond very quickly. This project inspired me to build a second NAME app that while not eligible for this particular hackathon, is already being used in the real world to help Chinese social media users communicate without censorship. | | 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!
