A collective of Ethereum contributors
working to boost the incentives around stewarding the core protocol
by maintaining an onchain registry of its membership
which allows ecosystem sponsors to directly fund the membership, their work, the public good.
“And, Ebling, there’s another, greater purpose. Hari Seldon founded two Foundations three centuries ago; one at each end of the Galaxy. You must find that Second Foundation.” Foundation, Isaac Asimov
Sponsor the Pilot¶
We’re running a 1 year pilot (read more here) to test our assumptions about the Protocol Guild’s funding mechanism and how to operate it.
Information about the smart contracts and how you can help fund public goods and their contributors can be found here.
