Keep DAOing It | BanklessDAO Weekly Rollup
Catch Up With What Happened This Week in BanklessDAO
Dear Bankless Nation 🏴,
Gitcoin Grants Round 19 is in progress and BanklessDAO and several projects are represented in the Web3 Community and Education round. Search for "Bankless," "International," or "Global" to discover all your favorite BanklessDAO projects and contribute to them via the Public Goods Network. Due to the quadratic funding mechanism, the more contributions there are for a grantee the higher the matching donations.
Season 10 proposals are on the Forum and are open for comment and an indication of your support via a poll. Reading the proposals is a great way to learn more about the different teams that contribute to BanklessDAO, but it's also pretty inspiring to see the breadth of activity and experience that we have in our community.
And that’s what really counts. Today has been a rough day for BanklessDAO’s reputation thanks to criticism over the recently posted proposal for Arbitrum DAO, but the people who contribute to bDAO know that this is a community of people who produce, who care about sharing the values of web3.
Keep strong, and let’s keep DAOing it.
