Founded by Kevin Owocki in 2017, Gitcoin is a Web3 development and networking platform that connects developers from across the world with open-source projects to learn, earn, and build. Thanks to the Kernel Fellowship, Kudos, Gitcoin dev grants, Gitcoin bounties, and various hackathons, the Web3 and Gitcoin communities can raise funding for the most innovative human good projects. One look at the Gitcoin GitHub profile shows just how active this community is. Also, the platform is responsible for the coordination and distribution of more than $18 million in grants. Furthermore, Gitcoin aims to become fully decentralized, thanks to the Gitcoin DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) and the native GTC token.
