Gitcoin moves to empower deserving projects and causes, intending to shape a better future for Web3.
Born, Validated, and Funded
Gitcoin kickstarted its Grant Round 14 (GR14), which commenced on June 8 and will continue until June 23, to seek deserving projects building on Web3 to validate and fund with the support of some of the leading names in the crypto space.
Gitcoin welcomes all types of projects through GR14, including software, tools, critical infrastructure, media, and communities. GR14 launches simultaneously with GR14 Hackathon with three types of rounds:
Main round with a total of $1 million in matching funds
13 ecosystem rounds with a total of more than $1.1 million in matching funds
Three cause rounds [with a total of over $1 million in matching funds]
“We’re so happy with the results of GR14 so far. The number of individual contributors to projects has been humbling, and we raised over $3m in funds to award grantees from so many amazing companies. Funding public goods are one of the most important things we can do in this space to foster an open internet in the future. It’s a pleasure to get the chance to empower a generation of builders.”
Gitcoin uses quadratic funding as the distribution mechanism, which is based on community participation. When coupled with matching pool funds, quadratic funding will be more beneficial for grantees.

Charting the Future of Open Internet
The platform believes that the most immediate problem, which is funding, can be solved through open-source protocols and decentralized blockchains. Collaboration and creation are now possible using this technology to fund and build digital projects for everyone.

It is a Web3 development and networking platform connecting developers to open source projects and community funding for innovative projects and impactful causes.
