Round Review

Lead stewards have reviewed the grants before voting. For grants that did not pass review, one of two actions were taken: relocation or removal.

Relocated Projects

Grants that were better suited for a different category were relocated.

Grant Name Action Taken
ENS Podcast Ads On ETH Daily Relocated to Public Goods
ENS👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 - The new social network Relocated to Public Goods
@ensregistry - ENS Registrations Bot :robot: Relocated to Ecosystem
New features for ETHRegisterController Relocated to Ecosystem
AFROGLOBE.com Relocated to Ecosystem
Electronic Medical Records storage Relocated to Ecosystem

Removed Projects

Grants that were erroneous, spam, or did communicate any project were removed.

Grant Name Action Taken Reason
Eth future Removed Grant text contained, “Really it’s very good & strong project! […] Wish me luck. This is definitely going to be HUGE!,” without communicating a project.
APP ENS DAO on smartphones Removed Grant text contained, " […] In the process, I used a knife, I realized that the most inconvenient thing was that only when I opened the computer or waited for the website on the phone…" Unclear if this is AI or any sort of real project.
