Gitcoin Governance Forum

Gitcoin Governance

The governance forum is a place for the community to connect, share ideas, and issue proposals. Here is a set of posts to get started:

The potential of decentralized impact measurement and exploring various allocation mechanisms, including assurance contracts, were seen as crucial steps toward achieving Gitcoin's ambitious growth target.


Gitcoin is embracing three key pillars:

  1. A shift from a monolithic platform to a suite of modular protocols.
  2. A spectrum of mechanisms like Quadratic Voting, Direct Grants, and Retroactive Public Goods Funding.
  3. Extending support to any EVM-based community.


Gitcoin emphasizes the concept of credible neutrality in the context of public goods funding. Credible neutrality ensures fairness by not favoring any specific group, aligning with the diverse values of different communities.

In the decentralized Gitcoin ecosystem, this principle is maintained through protocols and programs, allowing communities to fund public goods according to their values. Gitcoin's evolution from a company to a DAO facilitates this, enabling communities to coordinate on neutral protocols.
