The high-level vision for Grants 2.0 is to enable Gitcoin to move faster on both the “problem” (public goods funding) and the “meta-problem” (optimal capital allocation tool for public goods funding) by decentralizing our core Grants product domains. We think that creating an open-source, modular, and decentralized grants protocol will allow the community to rapidly test different public goods funding mechanisms on top of a deeply liquid registry of grants. Further, we believe that a decentralized protocol for public goods funding is a public good in and of itself. The core domains of the protocol are represented today by Passport, Grant Hub, Round Manager, and Grant Explorer.
This is the home of Grants 2.0 product development in the DAO. It covers Grant Hub, Round Manager, and Grant Explorer — dPoPP is being developed in Moonshot Collective and can be seen here. This is also a place where you can find links to information about the legacy cGrants Platform.
There are four distinct product domains outlined in the Grants 2.0 Vision: dPoPP, Grant Hub, Round Manager, and Grant Explorer. While dPoPP is foundational to the success of the larger vision, long-term it will probably operate more as a stand-alone utility on which Grants heavily depends.
