The Gitcoin community is evaluating a $396,710.94 budget proposal for a new Business Development group called Get Stuff Done (GSD) aimed at driving product adoption and fostering strategic partnerships, with strong community support despite concerns about Gitcoin's revenue model and team alignment. The proposal is set to go to a vote, with a corrected version already submitted, and the Gitcoin WalletGuard has confirmed the proposal's code integrity.
The discussion is centered on the budget request for the Get Stuff Done (GSD) S20-21, which is a proposed new Business Development (BD) group within Gitcoin. The GSD's mission is to drive product adoption, manage sales processes, and foster strategic alliances. The team structure includes a General Manager, Co-Leads, an SDR, an Engagement Manager, a Funds Manager, and an EA. The budget request amounts to $396,710.94 for S20/21, intended to cover costs for contributors, travel, discretionary, operating expenses, and software/tooling. Additionally, the proposal suggests the creation of a new multisig for the GSD workstream and the use of reserves from the PGF Multisig.
The community's response is predominantly positive, with many members voicing their support for the budget and expressing confidence in the team's leadership, indicating a readiness to vote in favor of the proposal. However, there are reservations, such as those from Ccerv110, regarding the absence of a proven revenue model for Gitcoin and the potential for misalignment between the new BD team and other teams within Gitcoin.
