Dear Tezos community,

With another week comes another exciting first in the Tezos ecosystem; Nomadic Labs and the French National Gendarmerie’s cybercrime division (C3N) announced that C3N has been recording judicial expenses on the Tezos blockchain since September. This marks a historic first time that a government entity has developed an operational smart contract and deployed it on a blockchain. We are thrilled to witness Tezos continue to establish its reputation as the first choice for high-value, real-world applications. Special congratulations to the Nomadic Labs team, which worked closely with C3N to build the program, allowing C3N to acquire cryptocurrency from Europol allocated funds in order to cover operational costs.

I would also like to note that the Cryptium Labs and Nomadic Labs teams have combined forces to introduce the latest Tezos protocol proposal, Carthage. Community members who want to learn more about the proposed amendment can read the introductory blog posts from both Cryptium and Nomadic which go through the proposed changes. All members of the ecosystem are encouraged to also join the discussion surrounding the proposal on Tezos Agora!

Best regards,
Ryan

Grantees, Funded Entities, and Other News
Below are some updates from the last week:

Our Activities

The Foundation is in the middle of significant grantmaking activities, as we are in the process of reviewing over 90 proposals from our most recent ecosystem grants RFP. We will complete reviews for grant proposals and update all applicants on their status by mid-December. If you have questions about the status of your grant proposal, feel free to email [email protected] at any point.

We are also thrilled to be creating the Foundation’s second biannual update (you can view our first biannual update here) to be released in early 2020. It has been a groundbreaking year for the Tezos ecosystem, and we can’t wait to share updates on what the whole community has achieved!

FAQs

I contributed to the Tezos Foundation’s fundraiser but I cannot figure out how to activate my recommended allocation — what do I do?
This is a question that we have answered here before but is worth repeating as we still see it come up in the community. In order to activate a recommended allocation, start by checking a contribution to the Foundation’s fundraiser. After checking, you may then begin the Foundation’s verification process to obtain an activation code corresponding to a public key hash from the fundraiser. Finally, activate a recommended allocation and access it using a Tezos wallet. Follow the steps at the bottom of this page, and if you run into any issue along the way, please email [email protected]
