Giveth Donation Application (Beta)
The Giveth Donation Platform is currently live in beta stage on the Ethereum mainnet, bridged to Rinkeby testnet. You can read our most recent public updates here and are welcome in our chat for any question! NOTE: We are currently in 'maintenance' mode, actively supporting existing projects on our platform but not accepting any new ones. In order to build a sustainable future for ourselves and any public good we are building the Commons Stack, a collaboration between Giveth and BlockScience. We are however moving forward with the DApp in the context of its integration in the Commons Stack component library as the Giveth Proposal Engine. You can read more about this on our medium and of course on the Commons Stack website.
Giveth is re-engineering charitable giving, by creating an entirely free, open-source platform, built on the Ethereum Blockchain. Our system cuts out bureaucracy and enables makers to create a high level of transparency and accountability towards Givers. For example: At any point until the moment funds are locked, a Giver can decide to withdraw them. You can read more about the basic components and the logic behind our DApp (Donation Application) in this post.
It's been a quest getting to mainnet efficiency, challenged by scalability issues that were too prohibitive for real use, but we found a smooth solution with a bridge. You can read a more detailed account here: Tackling Ethereum scalability issues (medium post)
We are growing our community steadily! The Giveth Galaxy of builders is ever-expanding, and an update on our current status is available here
