Pomelo Season 3 Is Here!
This is an excellent opportunity for public goods builders to be rewarded for their work and we encourage community members to submit grant applications on Pomelo.io. To help you prepare and spread the word for this Pomelo Season, the Pomelo team released an excellent nine tweet mega thread with everything you need to know to participate with the magic of quadratic funding!
As one of our exciting funding initiatives, Pomelo empowers everyone in the EOS community to receive funding by creating a wide variety of public goods, including many kinds of apps, infrastructure, media content, and much more. In Season 1 and Season 2 of Pomelo, we’ve distributed over $1,388,888 to 216 public goods with the quadratic formula, which allows EOS token holders to dictate how funding is allocated.
The Pomelo team recently released a new article entitled What’s a public good? and an accompanying tweet to help everyone understand what qualifies for funding on Pomelo. In short, public goods are items or services that are freely available and benefit everyone equally. Once public goods grants are approved by the Pomelo team, it’s time for grant owners to promote their work to the EOS community. To help grant owners promote their grants and engage with the EOS community, the Pomelo team organized five different types of Pomelo Pitch sessions, including weekly Twitter Space Pitch Sessions, Pomelo Pitch Deck interviews, and Tencent Meetings on WeChat. You can already listen to the first Twitter Spaces Pomelo Season 3 Kick-off and all grant owners are encouraged to sign up to pitch your grant to the EOS community.
In addition to amplifying donations with the power of quadratic funding, you can also help support public goods on EOS by interacting with Pomelo’s cosmic NFTs. You can learn about Pomelo Season 3 NFTs in a recently released article that shows how to purchase astronomical NFTs, customize your profile picture, earn achievement awards, and launch rockets to new worlds after blending Rocket Potions. As always, all funds raised via primary sales from Pomelo NFTs are donated as matching funds to foster the development of public goods for the EOS ecosystem. Now, with the power of BountyBlok, you can also win free Pomelo NFTs and help spread the word about these amazing opportunities for public goods creators by participating in the Pomelo mega thread retweet contest.
Donations will open for this Pomelo season on July 27th and then the EOS community will have a few weeks to decide how to allocate the $366,186 matching pool among qualified grants. You can learn more about Pomelo Season 3 in their blog or by visiting the Pomelo.io platform.

ENF Quarterly Report Summary
In last week’s Everything EOS Report, we summarized an overview of our activities, grants, and financial expenditures in a 19 page Quarterly Report. This week, Yves La Rose created a trending thread with alpha from the report to help spread the word & ensure that EOS makes an epic comeback. Yves started by highlighting the rapid growth of our team, including the establishment of ENF USA & ENF Hong Kong, new director of developer relations, marketing expansion, and top technical talent. Yves continued with a flurry of helpful initiatives, including our sponsored working groups, innovations in EOS DeFi with Yield+ & Recover+, EOSIO Coalition developments, and an exponential increase in developments on Github.
Yves wrapped up the summary with exciting EOS EVM updates, funding updates, and our roadmap for the remainder of the year; then the EOS Bees swarmed the thread to help amplify the message for the wider blockchain community. The combination of the excellent thread and the EOS Bees Swarm created a huge amount of positive attention for EOS and helped countless people learn about The New EOS. Within hours of the thread being published, #EOS was trending on Twitter and major media outlet Lunar Crush created a thread to promote our Q2 Report & Roadmap.
