• In a nutshell, retroPGF aims to maximize long-term value in various ecosystems, including its impact on the token
• Projects are funded after they’ve proven their value
• This approach is facilitated by a Results Oracle
• Tool: GitHub - gitcoinco/easy-retro-pgf

Scoping a Round
• Timeline: Trimester round process (applications, voting, distribution).
• Tools: Agora, Pairwise, Charmverse
• Important to determine a North Star and audience for applicants and voters
• Example: The Ecosystem round rewards work that provided impact to application developers in the ENS Ecosystem (SDKs, APIs, oracles, educational
materials, etc)

Badgeholders
• Given to individuals who meet certain criteria and standards and are aligned
with the ecosystem’s objective (Article III)
• Important to set behavior standards and accountability mechanisms
• Helpful to create spaces for badgeholders to meet one another
• Resource: OP Badgeholder Manual

What’s Next
• Application process and impact evaluation strategies
• Badgeholder nominations and voting
• KYC and allocating payouts
• Mastering the easyretropgf.xyz tool

Link to slides with list of resources at the end: ENS DAO — RPGF Midpoint Review (2024).pdf - Google Drive

Recommendations for ENS: Keep testing round tight to prevent scope creep
