Hey @Premm.eth

This is a topic that should be discussed, however this thread is for requesting subgroups. If you meant to request a subgroup, we outlined a format above that the request should come through as.

Subgroup Name: Arweave Integration
Subgroup Lead Coordinator: inplco.eth
Purpose of Subgroup: Subgroup name is self-explanatory. Introduce Arweave (AR) support to ENS in text records and contents for ENS + AR PermaWeb3 ecosystems
Potential Contributors (# or names): SpikeWatanabe.eth, nick.eth, avsa.eth, slobo.eth


Arweave is already supported under our contentash. You can add arweave support on our avatar specification ENSIP-12: Avatar Text Records - ENS Documentation but that’s more of one single task. What other activities are you planning to have the subgroup for?

I wasn’t aware that Arweave hash was already supported in content field :neutral_face: Besides that, avatar field is one, and possibly also a generative ENS avatar/pfp/glyph auto-hashed on Arweave at the time of .eth domain registration. This has already been mentioned on twitter and here on discourse in Public Goods (I think). I essentially propose to enable Arweave support for features that can have it at the moment and for any potential features that could/will have it in the future. I guess one could also merge it with another group that is already taking on back-end integration tasks. I leave that for the stewards to decide.

Subgroup Name : .eth Websites Subgroup (also posted in Public Goods WG)
Subgroup Lead Coordinator: @neiman and @Elle97
Purpose of Subgroup: We propose a subgroup to be the point of contact for the .eth websites community. This group will focus on solving the main challenges of .eth websites (see more below).
.eth websites are decentralized websites based on ENS in combination with other technologies such as IPFS, IPNS, or Skynet. You can read about it in the article “Introduction to decentralized websites”
.eth websites are a use-case of ENS, that grows rapidly. There are already over 2K websites indexed by Recently even Vitalik Buterin started to spread his publication with a .eth website,

This subgroup will aid .eth websites owners to be part of ENS DAO and will represent the point of view of .eth websites in the DAO governance. Specifically, we will focus on the following challenges for .eth websites:

  • Discoverability: how do users discover .eth websites? for example with our .eth website search engine,
  • Accessibility: tools for accessing .eth websites, such as gateway, browsers extensions, or native integration in browsers.
  • Community: grow the .eth websites community with activities such as making standards or a decentralized website of the week award we organize.
  • Exposure: promote and bring awareness to .eth websites in the web3 community.
  • Tooling: promote the creation of tools for building .eth websites. We already started doing this recently in our community with dWeb services.
  • Innovation: promote innovative use-cases of .eth websites in order to unlock the potential of the field.

What is Esteroids (=Ethereum Asteroids)? Esteroids is a project for .eth websites. We maintain a .eth Search engine for .eth websites, a .eth website bot, and recently launched community services for .eth website.
The .eth website community is active in our Discord server, where people create experiments, publish tutorials or establish collaborations. Additionally, we also organize a “decentralized website of the week award award” for .eth websites, to bring attention to the field. This proposal is made with communication with other major entities in the .eth websites ecosphere, such as gateway.
Potential Contributors (# or names): @tomlightning
Additional Comments: Our vision is of a democratic web of .eth websites, based on ENS technology. We believe that people should be members of the web and not only users. In our vision, the .eth web itself and its major platforms are managed like a DAO, by the .eth Web users.

Dear Stewards,

Please consider the request for Development subgroup formation as per discussions on Research, Analytics & Development initiatives in ENS DAO.


Requesting Ecosystem WG for formation of Development subgroup

Scope of Work:

Development subgroup is responsible for keeping an active tab on the overall DAO ecosphere beyond the realms of ENS. This requires making sure that ENS is present at global Ethereum conferences and proactively looking out for ways to improve itself. Development subgroup is responsible for ensuring ENS’s sponsorship in Hackathons, ENS’s presence on panels, workshops and speaker lists. ENS should lead the way in how-to-DAO. Development subgroup should also seek to foster DAO2DAO relations where the principle of public goods is a common theme; there are many DAOs with the same aligning ideology as ENS, where ENS has the possibility to engrain itself in other crucial ecosystems thereby increasing its public good footprint (in conjunction with Public Goods WG).

@alisha.eth I do not have write access in Ecosystem WG so a discussion is not possible in the new thread.

Nobody can create topics in the top-level categories - you have to select an appropriate subcategory.
