C) Project Highlights (Revoke.Cash, GasHawk, Pairwise)

Revoke.cash presentedby Rosco - Revoke.cash
Revoke.cash is a website where you can connect your wallet and view your token allowances. Allowances are needed to transact on-chain, but leaving these allowances open can potentially be dangerous if the contract is exploited in the future. Scammers can also use phishing sites to get allowances that shouldn’t be allowed in the first place. The revoke.cash browser extension analyzes the site that sends an allowance request to your wallet and warns you of potentially fraudulent requests.

The website initially created in 2019, was always a basic interface. They recently released an overhauled web page with a better interface and some information about allowances.

It is important with a multi-chain ecosystem that we support as many chains as possible so users can stay safe everywhere.

Q: Is there a revoke-all button?
A: Unfortunately, that is impossible because every revoke must be a single transaction. To encourage people to read what they are signing, we don’t want to offer a solution that requests many repeating pop-ups for each transaction.

Q: Multi-chain is great, but I have to select each individually. It would be great if a button could scan all chains.
A: That would be great, but unfortunately is not possible.

Q: Are there any limitations to which transactions the browser extension picks up?
A: It picks up allowance requests from the wallet extension.

Q: Do you have a Spanish-speaking team?
A: One of the big things I noticed at Devcon in Bogota is a big community that doesn’t speak English. It is a good idea to translate the site into different languages. I have asked a few people to help with translations - currently, Spanish and Chinese.

GasHawk presented by Daniel - Gashawk.io
A product built by Corpus - a web3 venture studio, also building dm3 and token.it

A service that allows users to save gas on transactions.

A unique feature within GasHawk is that you are connecting your wallet to our RPC. The FAQ on the site walks you through the process. Unfortunately, we don’t have a one-click add to the network because we use the same chain ID as Ethereum.

We will soon have a feature on the site where you can enter an ENS domain or address, and we will show you how much gas you’ve spent over a period and how much you could have saved by using GasHawk.

We are using the full 1 ETH grant to reimburse users of GasHawk, within limits. We are excited to be able to give back to the community.

We have a simulated transaction feature through Tenderly.

Anyone that uses Ethereum can benefit from it, and saving money is a no-brainer.

Will present next week.

Safetransfer.cash presented by Le Penguin - Safetransfer.cash

This project is under development but allows users to avoid sending tokens to the wrong address.

A blog post and demo can be found, here.
