Ecosystem Meeting - April 27th, 2023

Notes

Gitcoin Grants

  • We had 48 projects apply the ENS gitcoin grants beta round
  • Consider donating to the ENS Gitcoin Grants Beta Round. This is an amazing way to support ENS projects and maximize your impact with fund matching. Link: ENS Ecosystem Round
  • Donation period will close on May 9th

Project highlights

Fileverse | Andreas

  • Fileverse is a decentralized alternative to Notion & Gsuite tools.
  • The UI is stored on IPFS, chat is end-to-end encrypted, and access is filtered at the address level. This means no email or kyc is needed to collaborate and access can be token gated or whitelisted
  • Donate via gitcoin

Unruggable Subname Rentals | @Premm.eth and @clowestab

  • Premm and Thomas are looking to make changes around 3 current limitations of subname rentals

    1. There is a single parent level “renewal controller”
    2. Subname’s in the name wrapper can be hard to verify as “unruggable”
    3. Burning the fuse of a wrapped domain carries a high degree of risk for the parent domain holder
  • The project introduces the idea of a renewal controller that manages the price of renewals. An indepedent 3rd party in this case could control the price of renewals and prevent price hikes on current subname holders

  • Donate via gitcoin

Review any upcoming events with ENS involvement

:tada: Birthday Party :tada:

  • ENS turns 6 years old on May 4th, @alisha.eth shared further details on ENS’s birthday party that remain a secret to those outside the ecosystem meetings. However, it is recomended you have your primary name and profile picture set on your domain.
  • Stay tuned to the ENS Twitter account for details.

ENS core updates

  • Next weeks Ecosystem meeting will likely be moved from the traditional Thursday 12:00 pm Eastern time to Wednesday May 3 @ 12:00 pm Eastern time to account for the ENS birthday party.
  • The smart contract audit for Gasless DNS domain imports is almost complete

Ecosystem Meeting, May 11th, 2023

Attendance

yungsb, accessor, alex slobo, megan fabry, sydmead (eth.limo), light walker, limes.eth, sem bee, julie shi, thomas clowes, 5pence, nick johnson, josh brandley, prem makeig, cap, 184, danielle, bennett, coltron, gregskril, paul mr, alisha, samway waysam, arcadian, mike lee, bishara, liu okery, dylan, miklus, justin chung, maintainer, peepskies (bishara),

1. Gitcoin Summary @Limes

Gitcoin Grants have come to a close. Key feedback are high gas fees - Gitcoin will be prioristing deploying on Layers 2s before our next round. In spite of high fees, the closing figures are:

  • $8793.79 donations, $50k matching funds, 155 unique contributors, 696 contributions

Matching values are not yet calculated (though capped at 5% of $50k). These will be figured out within a week and reported on at the next meeting (or sooner).

Additionally, ecosystem team was issuing gas refunds to applicants to avoid anyone being excluded. This is in line with Ecosystem WG wanting to support projects to have the resources you need to get funding you need.

  • Gas refunds (totallying ~1.2 eth) have been issued to applicants (tweeted)

Here are the top 10 projects in terms of “Number of Donations Received”

Projects No. of Contributions
eth.limo 39
ENS DAO Newsletter 30
Optinames 30
GasHawk 29
beaconcha.in 26
Heavens Tools 23
1W3 22
ENSRedirect 20
Web3Domains.com 20
ENS Doc 19

Many of the projects in this round have attended & shared in WG meetings. Going forward, these results aid as another helpful metric for what we support.

2. ENS Birthday Stats @alisha.eth @gregskril @Limes

Since May 4th, 7528 anniversary POAPS have been minted (tweeted)

  • Claming will be open until end of May. With ~2500 POAPS available to be claimed.
  • Eligability requirements are that your wallet own an ENS name with Avatar & Priamry Name set.
  • Users who met eligability requirements may claim for free.
  • Users without Avatar or Primary Name may first set these directly via the claim site - the action of setting Avatar & Primary Name does cost gas.

This initiative has broken records for ENS Avatar Records Set in a day. See Dune Analytics Query, where we twice broke the record set back in May 2022. The inititiave was a success.

Website: anniversary.ens.domains
POAP artist: áxek @theaxents
Website built by @gregskril

Acknowledgements: Props to Greg for the site being built and the artist áxek. ENS are lucky to have been working with the POAP team to have this sort of flow & success.

3. Bug Bounty Program & Immunefi @nick.eth

  • An increased amount of bug reports has lead to an increase in time needed to be spent evaluating them. Thus, there is a need for clearer criteria & inclusion criteria for reports.

A solution to this is professionlising bounty program & being clear on scope.

  • Several have suggested immunifi - based on good reputation, and having run programs for high profile organsisaitons.
  • Nick seeking a feedback from ecosystem team & others team if this is worth investigating further
  • Their website states: no maintenance, onboarding or advisory fees. They take a cut of bounties.

This was generally supported.

Action item: Nick will schedule meetings, and get back on details of costs next week

4. Proposal to replace ENS14 @AvsA @alextnetto.eth

Generally speaking a referral system is strongly supported with multiple ways to approach it. This discussion continued with the ideas in the active forum thread.

Action item: Wait 1 week to allow others to input to the forum, then schedule specific ENS14 call to discuss.

5. ENS core updates @gregskril

  • We have a new Rust library for ENS: Ethers RS
  • New features in V3 (from community feedback)
    • New ability to unwrap ENS names
    • ‘Wrap name’ banner prompt removed to avoid confusion/impression that nameowner needs to wrap a name
  • ENS Labs is moving to a new feedback form
    • Replace google form with DeForm - better & web3 native alternative.
    • Will be embedded in app soon
    • Deform feedback form

+ Gasless DNSSEC update @nick.eth

  • Forum thread: Update on gasless DNSSEC implementation
  • Codearena audit has come to conclusion.
  • Currently in post audit triage with codearena steward
  • No major findings
  • There a few minor (unexploitable) bugs. Following fix, will look at deployment & integration testing for gateway

6. Review any upcoming events with ENS involvement

Upcoming events:

Julie shared updates including:

  • Updated Website - live on goerli, testing on mainnet

Note: Next week the platform will go live to users who have signed up for 1W3.

“What would you like from our community?”

  • We would like the community to test the tool, try to crash the site and find what’s not working. Also planning to implement subdomains, and would like to partner & coordinate with community member developers.
SemBee & WaybackMachine - (Round 5) recipient of ens small grants.

Sem Bee, a developer from wayback-machine.eth, stopped in to share about their progress with a live walkthrough of features. Mentioned funds contributed to hiring a designer who also helped improve style & response for mobile.

“What would you like from our community?”

  • Mainly awareness, just use it, try it, and if there are use cases we are not covering enough (e.g. ipns might need more work). Tell us what you are interested in knowing about the past of ENS names. This is really appeciated.

@boyuanx | Twitter | Email: jxu@ethsign.xyz from EthSign | twitter | website

  • EthSign
    • ENSIP: Signature Validation for ENS Domains is already posted to the forum with the latest version of EIP-6066.
      • EIP-6066 focuses on enabling NFTs to carry their own signatures, essentially representing approval. The idea is to utilize ENS domains as identities to allow individuals to approve hashes using their names.
      • This concept could have various applications, such as using ENS as an organizational management tool or for creating organizational charts.
        • For example, a CFO position could have the ENS name ‘cfo.ethsign.eth’, and the signatures made by the CFO would be tied to the name/position, rather than the person. In essence having role-based signatures.
      • Jack encourages feedback and ideas from the community

3. Overview of tools.ens.domains by @serenae

@serenae | ENS Profile | Twitter

  • tools.ens.domains demo
    • This site contains extra tools that enhance the experience for ENS users and developers - including sidetools not yet included in manager app, that dont make sense in the app, or may have specific use cases /are edge cases. Tools include:
      • Check an ENS name:
        • Gives a birds eye view of an ENS name: including checking for normalisation, fuses, subnames, the resolver details, as well as links to support docs, explainers, etc. This tool also works to show offchain names.
          Try clicking on the many different buttons & warnings.
        • Use case: Checking names on secondary markets to determine name normalisation, burnt fuses, subnames, and name state.
      • Set ENS Primary name:
        • Allows setting & clearing of primary name
        • Use case: Etherscan is experiencing an issue displaying primary names;this tool ‘kick-starts’ their system into working
      • Unwrap an ENS name:
        • This tool works for unwrapping 2LDs, subnames & DNSimported names
      • Set ENS Manager (Set Public Resolver Manager):
        • Manager role doesn’t (yet) show in the Manager App for wrapped names. This tool assigns manager for a name, and/or a separate address to manaage all names in a wallet. Also has the revoke function.
      • Set ENS Records:
        • Complementing ‘Set ENS Manager’ tool, to allow public resolver manager to update records
    • @lightwalker.eth suggested a dashboard for community created tools
      • a separate channel will be setup in discord chat.ens.domains - stay tuned for details.

4. Project Highlights [corbin]

Corbin Page | Twitter | github

  • usernames.club
    • usernames.club focuses on username NFTs; and provides a naming service and representation of membership to bespoke communities - powered by ENS CCIP Read & resolve in wallets under usr.id
    • This involves offchain resolver, handling address-to-name mapping off-chain while maintaining on-chain ownership. All data is read from NFTs and the code is open source on GitHub
    • Learn about usernames.club in this tweet
    • Read the full write up Introducing Usernames.club
  • patchwallet.com
    • Patchwallet is a web3 wallet attached to every Twitter, email, & phone number. A ‘zero onboarding’ wallet to send NFTs/tokens to your friends, family & customers. It utilizes the ENS protocol and CCIP to query Twitter usernames, phone numbers, and emails.
    • Offering deterministic account abstraction wallets that are consistent across chains and compatible with web3 wallets. It facilitates NFT gifting, airdrops, and supports telephone integration.
    • Check out Patchwallet on twitter
  • In general discussion:
    • Corbin shared the need for more tools & off-chain resolver templates for those launching Layer 2 solutions
      • Additionally, tools, templates, and information on off-chain rights (CCIP Deferral Right (EIP5559)) are essential for CCIP read projects launching on Layer 2 solutions
    • Corbin suggested that all ecosystems launching rollups should closely align themselves with ENS for maximum benefits and opportunities
    • @Gregskril has developed a reliable off-chain resolver contract (offchain.ens.gregskril.com), with both docs and repo in the footer
    • Projects are encouraged to apply for grants; for added benefit of visibility and getting involved with the ENS community. Ecosystem meetings also being great for sharing updates & new features
