Revoke.cash - Helping web3 users stay safe

Project Name: Revoke.cash

Project Description and why it’s classified as a Public Good:
Revoke.cash is a suite of end-user security tools that help people stay safe in crypto. It was created by me in 2019 as a side projects, but over the past years it has grown into a staple of web3 security tooling. The main product is a token approvals dashboard that enables users to inspect and manage their token approvals across 60+ different networks. We’ve also created a browser extension that provides pre-transaction warnings for certain high-risk interactions.

All of our software is provided free of charge and open source licensed (MIT). We may add certain paid features in the future if it’s required in order to sustain the product or enable those features. Even if we do add these kinds of paid features, we plan to open source this functionality, so that it is possible to self-host instead.

Funding sources:
All funding has been from Grants, donations and sponsorships. In descending order of amounts received from inception until now: Gitcoin Grants, Optimism RetroPGF, Sponsorships, ENS Grants, Direct Donations.

Quite the timing for you all to join with everything that took place last week. Really a big fan of your project, and thanks a ton for sharing these extra resources.

I highly encourage anyone who hasn’t yet checked out Revoke to go and do so. Go see what tx’s you’ve signed and what dapps youve given permissions to, as it can be extremely important for keeping your funds safe!
