Quadratic Funding and How Gitcoin Raised $60M for Public Goods - Kevin Owocki

Episode Summary

We were joined by Kevin Owocki, co-founder of Gitcoin, to discuss their quadratic funding model which raised over $60M for public goods funding, and how Gitcoin 2.0 further decentralises crowd-funding

Episode Notes

5 years, 20 Grants, 3715 projects crowd-funded and over $60M raised towards public goods funding, from 4.2M unique donations. Gitcoin’s headline numbers are indicative of the massive success their quadratic funding (QF) and public goods funding models (PGF) have seen over the years. With Gitcoin 2.0, crowd-funding is further decentralised, Allo Protocol being open-source and permissionless: any ecosystem treasury can create their own Gitcoin Grants program to help their community fund what matters to them.
