GIVfriends 🫶

This month we have two GIVfriends: Octant and Trusted Seed!


Developed by the Golem Foundation, Octant is championing sustainable public goods funding and amplifying your web3 influence to reshape the world. Powered by an 100k ETH stake, they’re creating experiments in decentralized funds allocation. Anyone can participate in these experiments by staking at least 100 GLM tokens in the Octant App. The more GLM you stake, and the longer you stake it, the greater the ETH staking rewards you’re entitled to!

During the allocation windows (October 19 - November 2 for Epoch One), users can choose to keep their rewards, or allocate some or all of it to participating public goods projects. All rewards allocated to public goods projects will be matched with more ETH! With experiments like these, Octant stands as a trailblazer in the quest for effective public goods funding solutions in the Web3 landscape.

Trusted Seed

Trusted Seed, a global network of trusted actors within the web3 ecosystem, is on a mission to support early-stage web3 Commons projects with a focus on creating regenerative economies that benefit the public good. At the heart of Trusted Seed's mission lies the Unconference. This gathering provides a unique platform for web3 stewards to come together, sharing knowledge, ideas, and skills.

Trusted Seed just announced that registration for the new edition of the unconference is taking place right now! To make the most of this experience, we encourage you to sign up and get involved early by joining circles. It's a fantastic way to amplify your impact and enjoy a richer, more immersive event.
