The challenge of adequately funding public goods, such as longevity research, among other scientific disciplines, has long been a point of contention in the scientific community. Historically, the tragedy of the commons hindered consistent investment. Recognizing the potential of the emerging crypto community and the innovative quadratic funding model, VitaDAO has embarked on a strategic partnership with Gitcoin, a pioneer in this unique funding mechanism.

Apart from VitaDAO, multiple thought leaders in the space have also donated to support the Gitcoin longevity grants. One of them is Vitalik Buterin, who shares his thoughts on the past round:

Aims, Hypothesis & Results

VitaDAO's primary objective in this collaboration is to elevate longevity research beyond conventional funding paradigms. By intertwining crypto's transformative financial power with quadratic funding, they aim to amplify the effect of individual donations, ensuring a broader benefit for the community. As of now, the VitaDAO Longevity Working Group has meticulously curated potential projects, focusing on underrepresented initiatives poised for growth. With two proposed rounds of funding and symbolic pledges, VitaDAO and Gitcoin are poised to redefine the longevity research funding landscape.
