Referendum 78, proposing to set up initial configuration for Polkadot nomination pools, is currently passing.
Referendum 80, seeking sufficiency for USDT on Statemint, is currently passing. Sufficiency means that this asset can be used for transaction fees without having any DOT on the relevant Statemint account.

Referendum 239, proposing to upgrade the Kusama relay chain to runtime v9300, is currently passing.
Motion 558, proposing to fund OnFinality’s public infrastructure, has been approved by the Council.
