What are Kudos?
Kudos are an amazing and innovative way to show appreciation and build relationships, think of it as a token of appreciation or a sticker signifying a great job. Additionally, It's also a way to showcase special skills that a member might have, such as Pythonista, or Design Star. Kudos tokens can be bought and sold on the Kudos Marketplace.

Minting Kudos is a great way to represent your brand, engage a community, and create rewards for desired actions. This can be done rather easily by providing information and creating a piece of artwork relating to the Kudo in the SVG file format. Alternatively, you can submit a request to have someone create the artwork on your behalf.
How do I get Kudos?
Kudos can be sent to you as a gift by other Gitcoin members. They can also be purchased with ETH in the Kudos marketplace. Lastly, Kudos may be awarded to Gitcoin Quest conquistadors. Conquer the Quest and the smart contract does the rest! Just remember that each Kudos has a limited supply and are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
