What is Gitcoin?

We are a mission driven project whose primary goal is to grow the open source community by allowing for better incentivized collaboration in the realm of open source software.

One thing that you will notice after exploring Gitcoin is that there is no token for the Gitcoin ecosystem. We support all ERC20 tokens in an effort to promote Ethereum as a whole.
