■About Funding the Commons
“Funding the Commons” is an independent project hatched by Protocol Labs (Network Goods), which aims to establish new funding mechanisms for public goods using open source technology, as a bridge between builders and researchers. I am.
The purpose is individuals and organizations building new models for sustainable public goods financing and value collaboration in open source networks. We aim to connect the public goods community across Web2, Web3, research, philanthropy, and industry. We do this by bringing together builders and practitioners, researchers and academics, funders and philanthropists to foster innovation in public goods. In the future, we will expand our impact by facilitating the creation of a public goods fund associated with impact assessors and funding projects conceived and incubated by the Funding the Commons community. That’s what I’m aiming for.
Our vision is a world in which the incentives for human cooperation at scale drive the development of economies that prioritize public goods. In this world, top global talent innovating for public goods is supported by a well-developed impact measurement system linked to a continuous flow of project capital.
