Superchain Highlights 🔴✨
Gitcoin Passport Introduces Onchain Stamps
Identity verification platform Gitcoin Passport introduced onchain stamps on OP Mainnet. An onchain stamp is a verifiable credential stored onchain. The solution uses Ethereum Attestation Service (EAS) for its onchain data structure. EAS is an open-source tool for onchain and offchain attestations that is available for OP Stack chains. Credentials can be assigned by various identity providers. The system aggregates stamps and assigns weights based on their cost of forgery. Stamps were previously stored offchain and required developers to query the Gitcoin Passport API to read the Unique Humanity Scores. Users can now migrate their passport onchain to OP Mainnet by visiting passport.gitcoin.co.
PoolTogether V5 Beta Release
Prize savings protocol PoolTogether released the fifth iteration of its protocol to private beta. The new iteration introduces immutability, permissionless vaults, and automatic yield-to-prize conversion. The private beta features boosted USDC and wETH vaults on OP Mainnet that generate a yield from Aave V3. Users with a pooly, pfer, GitPOAP, or PoolyCon POAP NFT can access the beta release. The V5 release is expected to launch for all users on October 2nd. PoolTogether also introduced Cabana.fi, a series of open-source and user-friendly interfaces for interacting with the new protocol.
