🧬 Cohort Streams
Introducing "cohort streams" our innovative way of delivering funding to groups of builders with a shared goal. We've made the entire system forkable, and documented the entire process in a series of fun and public videos!
Cohort Streams are basically streaming contracts for contributors to get funded for their work. Each cohort has a clear missions or objective.
The contracts start full and allow for immediate withdrawals. Go ahead, withdraw and start building! The streams pause when full, giving you the flexibility to phase in and out and work on multiple projects. Here's the best part: when you withdraw, you're encouraged to write a sentence about what you're working on or link to your PRs. This creates a public record and a feedback loop that enriches the learning environment for all developers involved.
We've teamed up with Jessy from "Jessy's Hacker Houses" to fund five different stream cohorts. Our friends at Aztec has also matched our ETH donations for Jessy's Zero Knowledge/Cryptography Cohort. Exciting stuff!
But that's not all! We've partnered with Kernel0x to create the "Play-Full Cohort" and joined forces with Rebecca Dai to fund the "Not Just Notfellows Cohort." Internally, the BuidlGuidl has two cohorts of its own: the Sand Garden Cohort, shipping intentional web3 products, and the Open Building Cohort, creating forkable prototypes for educational purposes.
Ready to get involved? You should definitely use our smart contract streaming app to incentivize, fund, and empower your own cohort, project, or initiative. Check out the code here. It's built with ScaffoldEth-2, of course!
And if you want to follow along with the development process. We've recorded ourselves building the original version, and you can catch all the sessions here:
