I included a total of 237 projects in my ballot. My largest vote was 1M OP and my median was 95K OP. I used this spreadsheet for filtering and calculations.

Here’s what the overall distribution breakdown looked like.


And here are some details on the strategy I employed…

X Prize Winners

I created two “X Prizes” to recognize exceptional contributions that I believe deserve outsize rewards and have never received RetroPGF before.

Open Source Impact

I created four groups to reward high impact open source software contributions.

Key Breakthroughs

Over the last 6 months, there were two breakthroughs that I believe deserve special recognition: onchain summer (the launch of Base, Zora, and PGN) and account abstraction going mainstream.


I created three final groups for contributions that form the glue for the community.
