Interestingly, this time the participation was a bit lower than usual, a few stake pool operators also let us know that they intentionally did not apply to give the others a higher chance. Greetings to @Alexd1985 in this regard!
A brief overview of the statistics in this round:
- We got 188 applications this time.
- We evaluated them manually and checked all the information they provided. We found builder tools, open-source projects, closed-source projects, many pull requests, some CIP, educational content, whole communities around projects, and many other contributions and support to the growth of the Cardano Community. We appreciate what these pools are doing, and we would like to give these 140 pools honorable mentions here. (see list below)
- We have identified 58 of them as outstanding contributions. See the list below. (note: pools that we would oversaturate have already been deducted here)
- We did a random draw and delegated to 45 pools. Visit pool.pm to get a real-time representation of the delegated wallets.
Congrats to everyone! And thank you for taking part, even if you did not make one of the lists this time. We will open a new application form in December to apply for the next round.
To the 140 pools receiving honorable mentions in this round, please do keep up your good work and support of the growth of the Cardano Community:
