🚀 Harmony will be integrated onto the Gitcoin Platform.
🦄 Gitcoin is a community of 47,000+ developers across both web2 and web3.
⭐ Gitcoin has built a great reputation in the space and has already partnered with a number of leading projects including the Ethereum Foundation, Polkadot and Near.
💻 By integrating onto Gitcoin, Harmony will be able to seamlessly and sustainably pay developers for their work via bounties, help them create great new projects via hackathons, and fund themselves on an ongoing basis using grants and more.
1️⃣ Best of all, Harmony developers will be able to be rewarded in $ONE, further solidifying developers as true owners of our protocol.

By partnering with Gitcoin, Harmony reaffirms its commitment to developers. We understand that our job is to build a rich ecosystem so that others will want to build on us. This partnership is one in a long list before it with critical infrastructure projects such as Chainlink, Magic, Band, which are important open source technologies for building great applications in our ecosystem.
We will continue to give developers access to even more robust technologies, tools, and services based on feedback from you, the community. Overall we’re excited to partner with Gitcoin in our shared goal of growing the web3 open-source ecosystem, Harmony included.
🦄 The Gitcoin Community
Gitcoin is a well-known brand and staple in the Ethereum Community. We are thrilled to be working with them.
In the coming months, developers from the Gitcoin community will be able to work on bounties focused on the Harmony-to-Ethereum Bridge, DeFi applications on Harmony, and more.
They’ll also be able to hack on great ideas for moving the Harmony ecosystem forward. Some of the ideas that we’re excited about include Crosschain Uniswap, integrating Bitcoin into DeFi and onto Harmony, and much more.
⭐ Building Bridges and Communities
The other day we announced Horizon: Harmony-to-Ethereum Bridge. Our first hackathon will be focused on applications that utilize the bridge. We will be posting more on this soon, including an amazing cast of volunteer judges. We’ll share more on this soon.
💻 Reaching Across Chains
Harmony has never believed in a “one chain rules all” mentality. The truth is that every chain has tradeoffs. In a multi-chain world, the best thing to do is to be a chain that’s easy to work with, has assets and protocols that work on the native chain as well as on other chains. We’re excited to continue building our own ecosystem but also in working with other chains in cooperation to make the web3 vision a reality.
In fact, it’s all part of our ONE philosophy. Partnering with Gitcoin is in support of that vision.
Developers can build on Harmony today, a fast and open blockchain for decentralized applications. Harmony Mainnet supports state sharding with instant finality. Our staking mechanism reduces centralization while supporting delegation and slashing.
We ❤️ Developers.
