Gitcoin’s ecosystem builder, Azeem Khan, in an exclusive quote to BSC.News said:
“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.
