GitCoin Grant Round 13

Effects of Quadratic Funding

The C.U.B.I.E. DAO has been accepted to GitCoin's 13th round of Grant funding. Any donations made through GitCoin are matched so even just a dollar can SO much farther than you think! Please follow the steps below to donate.

The matching bonus increases as you connect your account to various Web2 and Web3 Platforms. You can read more about the Trust Bonus on GitCoin's website here

Match Bonus Note:
Number of contributors matters more than amount funded. For example, 100 $1 donations will be matched higher than 1 $100 donation.

Donation Status

🎉🎉 We reached our first, second, and final stretch goals of 25, 50, and 100 donors for our first grant application! 🥳 🥳 Thank you for helping us get this far!

Donation Flowchart


This section is for advanced users only. If you are new to working with wallets, return to the previous section and follow the video tutorial by LeifTheImpaler.

The Green path (3) is the path described above and in the tutorial video.

Gitcoin donation paths.png

The above image provides some alternate paths to gitcoin donation.

Yellow path (4) shows a way to minimize withdrawal fees at Uphold but requires having a Gemini or other CEX account and two additional swap steps along the way.

Layer 2

Paths (1) and (2) show ways to on ramp fiat currency to Ethereum layer 2's zkSync and Polygon, respectively. There are steep fees (~4%) from payment processors to do so in this manner, but transaction fees are much lower than Ethereum mainnet.
