📏Code of Conduct and Rules of Engagement

The Gitcoin community has adopted a Code of Conduct that must be followed by all participants in the community and Rules of Engagement that set standards for participation on the forums.

Code of Conduct

Our most up-to-date Code of Conduct can be found on our support channels.

Rules of Engagement

  1. In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we ask that you be respectful of each other's thoughts and opinions. We will not tolerate any insults, racism, harassment or threats of violence against members, even as a joke.

  2. This is a community space free from advertising. Do not post unsolicited referral links, or discord invitations unless specifically asked for by another user.

  3. Do not post any NSFW content and limit the use of offensive language across all channels and nicknames.

  4. Never share API or secret keys, whether they are free or worthless. Those are for your use and your use only.

  5. No user should ever ask you to send them money, especially not members of the moderation team. Please contact governance [at] gitcoin.co immediately if that happens to you.

  6. It is an offense to impersonate members of the moderation team. Anyone caught doing this will be instantly banned and reported.

  7. As this is a free platform we cannot guarantee that law enforcement doesn't record and monitor the text communications in this server. Please be conscious of this by refraining from discussing anything illegal including tax evasion and market manipulation.

  8. As you can see, this forum is organized by topics. Please keep discussions in their respective threads or one of the moderators will assign it to the proper one for you. We want to keep discussions organized and clean, so please keep things relevant and help us encourage productive focused discussion.


Everyone in the Gitcoin community must abide by the Code of Conduct and Rules of Engagement. Gitcoin has zero tolerance for:

  • Hate speech.

  • Personal attacks or threats (online and IRL).

  • Aggressive tone, threatening language or imagery.

  • Sharing illegal or explicit material.

  • Spam

The Code of Conduct and Rules of Engagement apply to all community members and are enforced by stewards who have chosen to take on moderator duties.

If you see something in the Gitcoin community that violates these rules, flag the post. All flags are confidential.
