C) ENS core updates

  • ENS is 12,000 names away from 2 million names. This was only ~3 months since we reached 1 million.
  • Rainbow released an ENS integration that enables users to change text records and information from within their mobile app’s user interface. Check out your own rainbow profile by visiting https://rainbow.me/(yourdoteth.eth) on a mobile device.
  • Attendee has a question about CCCIP read implementation.

D) Review any upcoming events with ENS involvement

  • AVSA reported that the ENS DAO would have a booth at the Devcon. :partying_face:

E) Discuss ENS ecosystem round eligibility for Gitcoin GR15

  • GR15 will run from the 7-22nd of September. Ecosystem is contributing 69k for GR15.
  • A forum post dedicated to GR15 can be found on the Governance Forum.
  • Projects submitting for this upcoming round should aim to have their submission in by September 3rd.
  • Kick-off discussion on grant eligibility for this ENS Ecosystem round.
    • No exclusions are specified for GR15. Any grant related to the ENS Ecosystem will be included in the round.
    • Percentage of max matching: past round was 10%, which, if applied to this round, would result in a max matching award of $6,900 for any project.
    • The cap on matching ensures that more projects receive funding, not only those most popular.
  • The attendees were polled on what max matching should be, with results in favor of 5%, which is lower than the last rounds. For lower matching to be distributed effectively, we should aim to have 40+ grants active in the round.

Next steps

  • Loop in @ceresstation, @ricmoo, and @lefterisjp , who have the most experience with Grants Rounds, for feedback before next week.
  • Twitter Spaces scheduled for Friday at 2pm EST, hosted by the ENS DAO account, to amplify and educate the community on GR15.

F) Open space for other ecosystem related topics

None.
