Minutes and call notes transcribed by @daylon.eth
A) ENS Project Highlights
Greg | ENS Widget
A widget that allows any react website to implement and register ENS names in a few flexible ways. It also allows tracking of who registered a name using your widget via Platform Source Parameter for Registrar Controller. It has options for styling and customization.
The widget is open source and available at github.com/gskril/ens-widget.
May include options to set primary name, avatar, and some text records in the future.
Sean | relay.cc
Relay is a platform for connecting an ENS name with projects and company card on the site. There are sections for the Lens ecosystem, music ecosystem, and more. It features a decentralied chat function that allows for messaging via ENS names. The team is working on an OpenAI feature (currently in alpha) that allows users to chat with a bot trained on a project’s documentation.
How is the training data for chatbot functionality implemented?
We have a system that can ingest documentation data to use in the question answering model. We currently have documentation implemented for some of the biggest projects such as Uniswap, Lens, and ENS. In the future there will be a process to onboard new project documentation, which could possibly be a premium service. We are using GPTIndex and Langchain to implement data for the chatbot.
Do you have an estimate of the number of projects that don’t have an ENS name?
It is hard to say. We are in the process of reaching out to projects and out of the current responses, it is about 50/50, but this is a small sample size.
Over the next few months we would like to implement as many ENS names for projects as possible.
Julie | Org3
Org3 is an ENS subdomain based organization management tool. It provides visualization of the current subdomains of a parent name. Anyone that owns a name can interact with their domain tree. It also has a file sharing system. The current focus is on domain creation and visualization process. Domain information is loaded from Graph protocol or with on-chain data from the ENS registry.
To mint subdomains, should we start with Goerli, or use mainnet? When will the NameWrapper be deployed on mainnet?
Use Goerli to practice and develop.
There is no precise answer for the release date of NameWrapper on mainnet, but it is expected soon.
Are there any features that you want to see on Org3?
It is recommended that once you have something live, you can post on the forum and tweet about it, and it will be much easier to solicit feedback that way. The ENS Discord can be a helpful resource and you may be able to get some more technical feedback there.
Julie | ENS Doc
ENS Doc allows you to upload and share your file in a safe way. To use it, choose a file to upload and enter the ENS address you would like to share the file with. The site creates a randomized file link to download the file that only the specified address will have access to. It uploads the file to IPFS and a backend stores the hash of the file location. The backend checks if the requesting address has permission to download the file. We still need to fix the issue of being able to guess the location of the file on IPFS without permission.
Slobo | nftychat
This week we added the ability for people to change their primary ENS name within their settings on nftychat.
J Eth | eth.id
After receiving feedback that the price to redeem your eth.id name was too high, we created a portal at eth.id/ens for redeeming a limited number of ENS names per day that a user already owns, for 0.01 ETH.
B) Funding Request is live on snapshot
Funding requests are now live on Snapshot. If you haven’t voted yet, please vote.
C) Review any upcoming events with ENS involvement
Coltron (re: ETH Denver)
We are looking at two potential places to hold a side event during ETH Denver. We are looking to have an event with around 100 people on the invite list, to get together and chat about ENS. The location is not yet finalized.
Any estimate of a date?
We are looking at March 2nd.
ENS Merch Store
We will be doing a small run of hats and shirts for IRL events, which will be available in the merch store as well @ ensmerchshop.xyz
We will be doing a workshop at ETH Denver and would like to feature the NameWrapper in the presentation. It will be a 1.5 hour event on February 25th. We are also interested in contributing to a domain renewal alert system for ENS.
D) ENS core updates
We are expecting updates soon, within the coming weeks.
E) Open space for additional topics
There was an ENS Office Hours Twitter Space today, in which Slobo discussed nftychat. (Recording)
The NameWrapper is still in active development, although the release is getting closer. We are still looking for bugs and things that can be improved. If anyone would like to work on it or work on integrations, please contact me.
What is the best way to reach out to you?
Twitter or the ENS Forum.
If anyone has feedback on how meetings are run, please share it publicly or privately with any of the working group stewards.
