Giveth x Popcorn Partnership

31th Jan: Snapshot created

TLDR: The Popcorn team believes that a Giveth x Popcorn partnership could be positively impactful to both projects, and share the Partnership agreements for input. We seek input by Tuesday 25th January 2022 12pm EST.

Here’s what we love about Giveth. Giveth enables individuals and organisations to receive crypto donations, while rewarding donors through their GivEconomy. We see Giveth as being fully aligned with Popcorn on its purpose, vision, and mission, and a natural partner in Popcorn’s mission to fund social impact and to bridge the social impact and web3 sectors. Even better, since there are no gas fees for Giveth beneficiaries to join the project, it offers our smaller projects an incredibly simple way to onramp into crypto.

And here’s Popcorn’s:

Popcorn's Purpose

As you’ll see below, there are numerous practical and impactful ways that Popcorn and Giveth can support each other.

  1. Popcorn will promote Giveth as an on-ramping possibility for social impact projects in our educational materials and beyond. Giveth will promote Popcorn as a DeFi project that makes real-world social impact.

  2. When projects nominated by the Popcorn community as a beneficiary do not receive the community votes to receive a grant, Popcorn will inform the Popcorn community about Giveth as an alternative option and support the Popcorn community to share this information with the beneficiaries they have nominated.

  3. Popcorn and Giveth will explore uniting our beneficiary verification processes, and build a shared database of verified projects.

  4. Popcorn and Giveth will work together to produce educational material about the potential of web3-based tools and technologies to give positive impact projects new fundraising options and access to new audiences.

  5. Popcorn and Giveth will explore the potential of each other’s project’s tokens to be incorporated in each other’s products. For example, Popcorn will suggest to the Popcorn community that GIV be included in at least one of their products, such as a Social Impact Index (may be named something else).

  6. Giveth will propose to the Giveth community that Giveth invest treasury funds in Popcorn products, to bring yield back to the Giveth treasury.

  7. Both parties will share open source code or advances that could help our projects advance. Edit (26th Jan): Adding to this: Explorations to increase transparency of Popcorn beneficiary organisations with tools like TRACE or to measure/publish their impact (e.g. Giveth updates).

  8. Both parties will add each other’s logos on our respective Partnerships website page.

  9. Popcorn will become a donor to verified projects on Giveth, so we can utilise Giveth as one of Popcorn’s tools to onramp Popcorn beneficiaries that aren’t currently set up to receive crypto currency, and the Popcorn treasury can receive GIV.


I’m onboard here. Don’t have anything of value to add, I don’t think :+1:


Great partnership!
Under 7. there could be explorations to increase transparency of Popcorn beneficiary organisations with tools like TRACE or to measure/publish their impact (e.g. Giveth updates).
