Gitcoin has, in a recent tweet, announced that they are now going to make Ethereum Classic Labs(ECL) a partner. Gitcoin is a platform which helps in Crowdfunding and helps freelance developers on open source projects. Developers don’t usually get paid and also don’t get a lot of attention to make open-source projects.

Gitcoin bridges that gap perfectly by providing a platform where the developers can get paid in cryptocurrency and also get the recognition that they truly deserve. A freelance Developer can work with the top open-source projects around the world and get paid out real fast without any hassle in the payments.
Hackers can also work with such projects and help find bounties for companies and groups or find bounties as a freelance. There is an option to join virtual hackathons. Hackathons are the contests where multiple hackers hack for a long stretch at one go focusing on usually a type of problem.
The bounties paid out by the companies can be as high as $20,000 for just one bug. Now, as you see, there is a lot of potential in this field, and the platform, Gitcoin, gives a huge range of opportunities to the hackers and programmers.
Not only Developers and hackers benefit from this platform, but also the managers and people who want to hire top talent for their projects. The managers can hire developers and hackers to work on their projects and make their dream project a reality without the tension of walking into a fraud.
You can also crowdfund your projects on Gitcoin, to make even more name for your project and get more developers. Gitcoin on their website says that the weight of all open source projects falls on only 0.01% of the developers, and that is it not sustainable.
The partnership with ECL will only boost this mission on which they have been working on. The Ethereum Classic Labs fund 25 startups every year through their network.
The ECL provides direct funding, development, and marketing support to the upcoming startups and projects. This, when works in partnership with Gitcoin’s system, holds a lot of power, and it is all primed up to change the way developers, hackers, and project managers have been working in the open-source scenario.
