How Proof of Life is confirmed

During the PoL meeting scheduled with the assigned PoL verifiers group, each funded project lead representative must provide PoL verifiers with the following information to confirm your Proof of Life with camera ON:

  1. Your full name

    • This has to be either proposer or co-proposer as listed in Ideascale unless explicitly stated otherwise in the FP onboarding form

    • PoL is not for the entire team - one person is sufficient

  2. Your project name & project ID# e.g. 1100001 (not ideascale ID#)

    • Project ID# will be found in this document under Fund11 tab, Column B - post publishing F11 results

  3. Your primary place of business (which city/country)

    • Where the project is incorporated or its primary activities are based in.

  4. Your intended completion date

    • When will your project delivery finish based on the scope of funding

  5. A video guide sample about how to do PoL can be found here.

  6. If you cannot attend any of the Proof of Life group sessions it’s your responsibility to contact your PoL verifiers group and arrange a 1 to 1 meeting. You will be provided here with office hours slots where you can attend a main PoL meeting. Your project will not begin until PoL is satisfied.

  7. If you have already confirmed a PoL in previous funds you don’t need to do it again - you are automatically confirmed.

    • Primary proposer as listed in Ideascale has to be the same for this to be true

    • PoL Verifiers group assigned to you will be alerted to that fact

  8. If you are funded for multiple projects in Fund 11

    • You only need to confirm PoL with one of the PoL Verifier groups assigned to you but you MUST inform the other PoL Verifier group where your other projects are that you have confirmed PoL elsewhere.

  9. All Proof of life meetings are recorded.

  10. The deadline for delivering your Proof of Life is 1 March 2024 in order to be included in the first batch of funding. It is strongly recommended to attend any of the slots made available by the PoL Verifier group assigned to your project prior this deadline.

  11. If you do not attend any available PoL meeting with your PoL Verifiers group then the PoL Verifiers will inform us and we will be in direct contact with you to establish if there is an issue.

If there are any issues with your PoL, please contact catalyst@iohk.io email to troubleshoot.
