Guide for Gitcoin Grants Round 14


Gitcoin is a community where public goods developers can earn funding in Web3 while creating open-source, decentralized applications. Many early projects use the platform for crowdfunding their project development and operation cost.

Note that SyncSwap is not on GR14 currently.


Currently, Gitcoin Grants Round 14 (GR14) is ongoing and will accept donations until June 23. You can choose to donate to different projects on the Gitcoin website.

Getting Started

0 - Create Github Account

If you have never donated and don't have a Github account, please visit to create one.

1 - Sign in to Gitcoin

Go to and sign in with your Github account.

2 - Maximize Your Impact

To maximize your donation impact, you have to complete several verification procedures to bring your trust bonus up to 150%.

You can do this at

Why maximize your impact is important?

In Grants Rounds (GRs), your donation will be able to match extra funds from the Matching Pool, the amount you matches will depend on your impact.

Thus the project you donated can receive additional funds from your contribution!

Here are some recommended verification methods for you:

  • SMS / Google / Twitter / Facebook (+15% each)

    These social media verification methods are relatively easy.

    Note that you need 100 followers for the Twitter verification, and you can skip it if you don't.

  • POAP / ENS (+25% each)

    You can verify by simply inputting your wallet address if you have a POAP or ENS.
