Say Hi To gtcETH!

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our next index token in partnership with Gitcoin: the Gitcoin Staked ETH Index (gtcETH)!

1.75% of the streaming fee from the Gitcoin Staked ETH Index will go to Gitcoin to support public goods.

Like our dsETH token, at launch, gtcETH is composed of rETH (Rocket Pool), wrapped stETH (Lido), and sETH2 (StakeWise).

Read on for more information on gtcETH, including:

  • What are public goods?
  • How to buy gtcETH
  • A look at our risk framework

What are Public Goods?

One of the reasons we’re so excited about launching the Gitcoin Staked ETH Index (gtcETH) and partnering with Gitcoin is the ability to give back to public goods.

A "public good" is something anyone can use, and using it does not prevent others from using it. One example is open-source software.

Gitcoin has supported many open-source projects that have helped grow the Ethereum ecosystem, including Uniswap, Optimism, Yearn Finance, Dune Analytics, POAP, WalletConnect, Ethers.js, and 1inch.

Providing A Framework to Understand Risk

Our Product team recently developed the Product Indicative Risk Framework. This tool helps people assess the risks of a product before allocating funds. Our framework uses a balance of numbers and observations to create a score that displays the approximate risk of our products.

The scores are broken down into intrinsic and extrinsic risks and labeled from low to high risk. We’ve made these scores publicly available, but they are only for informational purposes and do not provide financial advice. The scores are periodically reviewed and updated when products are modified.
