Pomelo Season 3 Kick Off
The third season of Pomelo was announced this week and the ‘out of this world’ Pomelo Season 3 NFT adventure is now underway!
The Pomelo team released a new blog post to kick off the Season 3 Festivities, share this season’s schedule, and help public good grant owners promote their grants. Pomelo Season 3 will officially begin on July 19 and the adventure already started in stellar style with the release of Carbon NFTs. These composable Carbon NFTs dropped on June 21st and will gain interesting utility in an upcoming blend with Grant Collectibles packs that drop on June 28th. You can learn more about these NFTs in the new blog post and purchase Carbon & Grant Collectible packs on AtomicHub or harvest.pomelo.io. All funds raised via primary sales from Carbon NFTs and Grant Collectible packs will be donated as matching funds for Pomelo Season 3 to foster the development of public goods for the EOS ecosystem. As we can expect after the amazing infographic, article, and interview about last season’s Pomelo NFTs, many exciting details will likely be released soon that will take the Pomelo NFT experience to the next level!
To help all public good creators and funders prepare for the upcoming season, the Pomelo team shared the following schedule:
- July 19–August 8: Create your grants for public goods. As grants are created, the Pomelo team approves the ones that qualify.
- July 27–August 17: Donate EOS to your favourite grants and influence the distribution of the matching pool.
- After August 17: The Pomelo team analyzes results and distributes the matching pool to qualified grants that pass KYC.
Even more so than last season, public good grant owner in this season will have powerful options to promote their work, gain exposure, and raise additional funding. Once grant applications are open, grant owners will be able to sign up for pitch sessions to pitch their public goods projects at the weekly EOS Fireside Chats in the EOS Discord, Pomelo Pitch Deck Interviews hosted by GenerEOS, an upcoming Twitter Spaces event, and Tencent Meetings on WeChat hosted by the EOS Nation Asia team. You can learn more about each of these opportunities in the blog post and you can also learn many exciting details about Pomelo Season 3 in this week’s EOS Fireside Chat.

Recover+ Blue Paper
We published the Recover+ Blue Paper to foster the next era of DeFi on EOS with ever more security, safety, and reliability. The Recover+ Blue Paper examines how to build an asset recovery framework for hacking incidents around the DPoS governance system of EOS, which can be reflected in the product logic and functionality of the Recover+ Portal.
The Recover+ working group was established early this year to create a formalized hacking incident response process with emergency smart contracts, protocols, and best practices guides to prevent & quickly recover from exploits. The Recover+ initiative was launched with the aim of laying the foundations needed for building a better future for individual projects, white-hat hackers, and the EOS network itself.
The newly released Blue Paper was largely written by Francis Sangkuan, the founder of PIZZA finance, which is an EOS DeFi platform with comprehensive lending, stablecoin, and swapping functionalities. The introductory blog post provides an excellent overview and abstract with a detailed introduction to Recover+, as well as a link to the full seven chapter Blue Paper. After the introduction, the Blue Paper provides an overview of DPoS, historical governance attempts on EOS, hacking incidents on other blockchains, various discussions, the Recover+ Portal, upcoming deliverables, and future features & modules. By improving communication among major EOS block producers and project developers, Recover+ will create a safer and more reliable environment for all businesses & individuals interacting with EOS.
In a helpful development that is completely unique to EOS, the Recover+ initiative is complimented by the Yield+ initiative, which also recently released the Yield+ Blue Paper. Yield+ is a community initiative designed to increase opportunities for dApp developers, develop the EOS DeFi ecosystem, and help everyone grow wealth with EOS. In addition to the thoroughly researched Blue Paper, you can learn more about Yield+ in our May 30th or June 20th Weekly Reports and the recent “Let’s Talk Yield+” episode of the Everything EOS podcast. All apps participating in the Yield+ Liquidity Rewards Program must also participate in the Recover+ framework to help make more secure & high yielding DeFi for everyone with EOS. You can learn more about the exciting synergies between Recover+ & Yield+ in this recent short clip and a discussion during this week’s EOS Fireside Chat.
The release of the Recover+ Blue Paper is a momentous development in part of our broader strategy to enhance the experience of EOS and push Web3 into the forefront of innovation. We’ve invested over $1 million this year sponsoring six think tanks, or working groups, to gather research, propose improvements to the EOS network, and deliver highly instructive academic research papers. In addition to the Recover+ Blue Paper, you can also find an abundance of helpful information in the Wallet+, Audit+, Core+, API+, and Yield+ Blue Papers. You can find all of these full Blue Papers in our comprehensive blog, along with countless exciting ancillary resources in our Everything EOS Weekly Reports, Youtube channel, and Twitter feed.
In addition to the new blog post and full Blue Paper, you can learn much more about the Recover+ Portal & initiative in our May 9th Weekly Report. You can also learn more and ask questions directly to the authors of the Blue Paper in the Recover+ channel of the EOS Community Discord.
Co2Zero Launching on Trust EVM
Amongst a wave of exciting developments for the EOS EVM ecosystem, Co2Zero announced that they’re choosing to launch a carbon trading decentralized exchange backed by Alibaba Cloud on Trust EVM, the most performant EVM in the world!
Co2Zero is the world’s first Web3.0 protocol for carbon neutral NFTs & carbon asset trading that is aiming accelerate the transition to a carbon-neutral global economy.

In addition to Co2Zero‘s announcement, there are a plethora of helpful resources where you can learn more about exciting recent developments with Trust EVM. If you’re not yet familiar with Trust EVM, you can learn about why this revolutionary technology is such a game-changer in the Trust EVM Launch Event blog post, press release, and the April 25th Everything EOS Weekly Report. You can also learn more about the most recent progress of the Trust EVM team in our June 20th and June 6th Weekly Reports, the Trust EVM blog, burgeoning Trust EVM Youtube channel. During this week’s EOS Fireside Chat, Zack Gall and Stéphane Bisson shared exciting perspectives about the recent Trust EVM Twitter Spaces event with Matias Romeo and Esteban Saå B.

With Trust EVM, countless applications like Co2Zero and TrustSwap will be more empowered than ever to create positive global change with EOS!
ZEOS Whitepaper Release
As the whitepaper‘s abstract describes, ZEOS enables private transactions for fungible and non-fungible assets on the EOS blockchain by leveraging Zcash privacy technology and LiquidApps’ DAPP Network Services. With ZEOS, anyone will be able to move any EOS based tokens between transparent EOS accounts and private ZEOS wallets where their assets are untraceable. ZEOS will offer an simple interface for all existing smart contracts on EOS to support private deposits & withdrawals, which will enable all applications on EOS to protect the privacy of their users while simultaneously benefiting from the transparency & audibility of EOS blockchain technology. ZEOS also enables proxy accounts to further increase privacy and is preparing to power a capital-efficient DeFi protocol for synthetic ‘zAssets’ that will be governed by the ZEOS smart organization.
The thoroughly detailed ZEOS whitepaper provides 51 pages of precisely written plans & helpful graphics to show how ZEOS will enable unprecedented privacy features and empower an entire ecosystem that respects your privacy with EOS. The whitepaper first provides an introduction to how ZEOS leverages Zcash privacy and EOS based DAPP Network Services, including vRAM, vCPU, and LiquidOracles. The whitepaper goes on provides an abundance of technical details about the ZEOS Protocol, the ability to make private transactions without an EOS account, zAssets, the ZEOS token, and the ZEOS smart organization. The release of this highly refined whitepaper is a tremendously helpful step towards achieving the long term goals of ZEOS to create tools that empower developers & foster an entirely private DeFi ecosystem on the EOS mainnet.
Transactions with ZEOS are based on zero knowledge proofs, which is the state of the art technology for private transactions. Zero Knowledge Proofs (or ZK-Proofs) can also enable Layer 2 Rollup scaling solutions to increase capacity for transactions on EOS without compromising security. In addition, the technical innovations pioneered by ZEOS may also synergize very well with the new cryptographic primitives in the recent Mandel Release, which you can learn more about in our June 20th Weekly Report.
ZEOS raised funding on Pomelo by creating open-source libraries & tutorials to make it easy for EOS developers to integrate zero knowledge proofs with many EOS applications. As Yves La Rose and Matthias Schönebeck shared in a heartfelt correspondence on Twitter, EOS now offers a multitude of outstanding funding sources that help empower talented developers like Matthias to build profoundly helpful tools for all.
EOSIO Coalition Report
The EOSIO Coalition met for deep discussion and we released the fourth EOSIO Coalition Report to summarize their exciting progress in the development of EOSIO. After forming the EOSIO Coalition a few months ago, leaders from the initial four founding blockchains pledged an $8 million annual budget and funded a multisig treasury account on EOS with $2m USDT. You can learn much more about the Coalition’s earlier progress in the first, second, and third EOSIO Coalition Reports.
In the newest report, we provide updates about EOSIO rebranding, requests for proposals (RFPs), and the Scalability+ Blue Paper. Regarding the rebrand, a new name has been selected, the IP is mostly secured, and there is an additional brand and logo process underway. Coalition members are highly motivated to align under a new banner, and the target is now mid to late July for a full brand reveal. An awesome first draft of the Scalability+ Blue Paper is currently under review and encompasses a thorough analysis of the current state of the EOSIO protocol, while advancing proposals for Faster Finality, Trustless Cross-Chain IBC, and RAM Limitation Fixes.
The EOSIO+ Coalition meetings are also back in action this week to update the community on many exciting initiatives. In the most recent EOSIO Coalition meeting, EOSIO technical leaders discussed brand name updates, market research, Scalability Blue Paper, Faster Finality & Wallet SDK RFPs, RFP SDK priority questions, Dfuse Firehose support, and much more.
