Hive has caught several bugs in nethermind and geth (https://github.com/ethereum/hive#trophies) and is actively maintained by Felix and others from the geth team, including Martin H Swende and now Jared Wasinger. This is an extremely important test suite for possible future client implementors to check behaviour/spec conformance and is an important component of the ethereum CI pipeline, results can be viewed here: https://hivetests.ethdevops.io/. Hive will likely also be repurposed to support eth2 in the future.

Giveth

Problem: Public goods are the most overlooked web3 opportunity. Federal, state, and local governments in just the US spent $10 TRILLION in 2021 and this cost is growing every year with no clear solution in sight. We have the opportunity to disrupt this sector GLOBALLY & Giveth is positioned to lead the way. Check out this awesome video from ETHDenver describing this problem at length: https://bit.ly/3fFPG0s Opportunity: Given the crypto market outlook, user and nonprofit adoption growth, and innovations in fundraising, crypto has the potential to become the most powerful philanthropic force on the planet in the years ahead. In 2021, the largest source of charitable giving came from individuals, who gave $326.87 billion, representing 67% of total giving (National Philantropic trust: https://bit.ly/3C5KTgn). Solution: Giveth is using web3 to evolve philanthropy! Our community is focused on Building the Future of Giving using blockchain technology. Our intention is to support and reward the funding of public goods by creating open, transparent and free access to the revolutionary funding opportunities available within the Ethereum ecosystem. 100% of donations go to projects. Donors are rewarded with GIVbacks. GIV holders can earn a yeild participating in the GIVeconomy. 1. We encourage Decentralization: Giveth offers innovative open-source solutions built on blockchain technology, which is inherently decentralized. Giveth is pioneering and experimenting with decentralized governance and communication techniques and supporting their adoption by other communities. 2. We promote Altruism: Giveth is an open, non-hierarchical global initiative empowering social, environmental and humanistic impact projects with modern technologies. Giveth supports many like-minded initiatives that are adding value to the world without necessarily having a direct profit motive. Giveth is building a self-sustaining giving economy that encourages and rewards altruistic intention where the collective benefits. 3. We believe in the power of Community: Giveth is an inclusive community united around a common goal. A community-owned platform, building and developing our DApps based on feedback from our members (snapshot voting, GIVgarden governance, conviction voting). Giveth enables trust within communities by increasing transparency and accountability through blockchain technology. Giveth proactively reaches out to similar initiatives which we see as potential collaborators, as opposed to competitors. Thus I believe Giveth is a great candidate for Optimisms’ retroPGF in order to support its long-term vision of building the future of Giving!

Ethersjs

Richard has worked tirelessly to build and maintain ethers.js since 2016, with no expectation of return. The library is a feature complete and compact way to interact with the Ethereum blockchain, is downloaded over 1m times a month, and has over 2k dependent projects. Although ethersjs is so widely adopted, it has not received much attention beyond Gitcoin Grants. While these donations have helped considerably, they likely don't do justice to how much time, energy, and care Richard has put into making Ethereum what it is today. As Nadia Eghbal and others have written, the work that goes into the most core dependencies in open source is often the most invisible. Let's shine some light on ethers.js.

EthernautDAO

EthernautDAO is the consolidation of numerous non-profit efforts made during the past few years to produce educational content like the Ethernaut CTF game, the Ethernaut diaries, and more, into a community that can proliferate this concept of educating because... well, because it's fun! The EthernautDAO has a lot of plans for the near future, and would certainly enjoy a bit of community recognition and help. Our goal is to transform web2 devs into web3 devs in a mere instant, and grow the Ethereum dev community by aligning incentives in a gamified way. We've trained about a dozen devs so far with zero resources, and have even succeeded in getting most of them hired by web3 teams. We need some help to scale this process exponentially.

XFolio

Daniel and his team are building a wallet for non-native blockchain users. Xfolio DAO has won a grant from Synthetix gDAO and continues to improve their product before opening for a closed beta. The team is currently conducting user case studies and focus groups for it's flagship Web wallet which allows users to track their portfolio on multiple chains, execute cross-chain transfers, initiate P2P trades and more. They are building the wallet from the ground up to ensure onboarding users to the space is as frictionless and smooth as possible. The team believes in giving the control over a platform to the users, so they can navigate the Web 3 space in a simple, intuitive fashion by providing a superior user experience with minimal hand-holding. XFolio team was one of the first wallets/trading platforms to natively support Optimism and its bridge and is confident to continue building as Optimism reduces entry barrier for new users due to low fees, fast transaction finality and full EVM compatibility.
