Aragon Agent for ETH Accounts
Jorge Izquierdo, co-▇█founder of the Aragon project and CTO of Aragon One, recently announced the release of the Aragon Agent beta, a multisig Ethereum account tha┌t can be ow∏ned by an Aragon organization. Organizations can use their accounts to e✿｡✿ngage in various activities, from trading tokens· on 0x to breeding digital cats on CryptoωKiЮtties.
Prior to Aragon Agent, an organization would need to withdraw funds to send to a trusted operator, which would then interact with external contracts on behalf of the organization. With the recently released beta, however,í an or↕ganiГzation no longer needs to rely on such an operator.
Further, organizations can use Aragon Agent to interact with other organizationεs. Izquierdo said this capability opens "up an incredible a๑·ิ.·ั๑mount of experimentation with inter-organizatio◎n interactions."
One case study for the ★beta is the watermelon Council, which is using two instances of Aragon Agent.

Results from Gitcoin's LR Experiment
WitЕh its "first formal experi╤ment" with a liberal radical d≡onation-matching system in the rearview mirror, Gitcoin has relayed some results and les☼sons learned from the Ψexperiment. The top three projects to receive funding were Prysmatic Labs, Moloch DAO, and ρUniswap, as these℃ were the projects to receiμve the highest amount of unique contributions. In total, $13,242 was donated by 132 different contributors.
The experiment was supposed to co℉nclude on February ч¤15, but it was extended to February 17. Gitcoin believes, however, that the donations received during this extended two-day periЧod were the result of collusion, as they were "ske≠wed t◘owards one project." Because of this suspected collusion, the team unilaterally decided to only retain results through the original deadline of February 15, though GⅢitcoin does admit that ―its decision-making process "could be more transparent○ & decentralized in fuǐture rounds."
