Hi everyone! My name is Eric Berry. I’m a long-time software developer and OSS sustainability advocate. You might know me as the founder of Code Sponsor, a platform built to provide funding for open source through one line of code.
Thanks to a tweet last year by Tomás Aparicio, I had the great pleasure to discover Gitcoin. During the exact moment I saw his tweet, I was contemplating how to manage payments to over 8 different countries. Cryptocurrency seemed an obvious choice. That day marked the beginning of a four month courtship between Kevin Owocki, CEO of Gitcoin, and myself.
