Description

{"ops":[{"attributes":{"underline":true,"bold":true},"insert":"The mission: "},{"insert":"\n\nCryptocurrency is a highly technical subject. It is often out of reach to the average user for reasons relating to ease of use, ease of access to information, or access to technology. It should be as easy to spend one DAI as it is to spend one DOLLAR. During the Covid-19 crisis happening around the world, MKRDAI.info seeks to develop and host several virtual social / training sessions for new and experienced users alike to learn more and become further engaged with the ERC-20 ecosystem and the DeFi ecosystem that is based on the Dai stable coin. In addition, exposure to dApps and the practical applications they serve outside of the financial product realm is a priority.\n\nWe are seeking funding to be able to pay participants to participate in these learning sessions. A small stipend of 15-20 Dai per participant can make a big difference in today's economic climate. We are looking to use technologies such as Sablier and other innovations to highlight decentralized technology while providing a small contribution to fellow human beings who are struggling in the world climate today, as they participate in virtual meet up sessions.\n\n\n"},{"attributes":{"underline":true,"bold":true},"insert":"Where we are now: "},{"insert":"\n\nThis project is in it's infancy, however, the momentum is very forward moving and picking up steam. We are currently awaiting a grant award from MakerDAO to be able to fund two or three of these meet-ups that include a participant stipend.\n\nThere are currently two offerings on eventbrite for virtual webinars. One is a Bitcoin/Ethereum for Beginners Session: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/google-hangouts-free-bitcoinethereum-for-beginners-tickets-101889638652 the other is https://www.eventbrite.com/e/makerdao-101-dai-stable-coin-and-the-oasis-app-registration-101938877928 \n\nThese are not yet funded to stipend the participants. Stipend paying meetings will have a maximum number of spaces for ten users. It is important however that this project move forward to be able to refine and deliver premium and relevant content as we wait for grant monies both in the works, and via solicitation.\n\nIf you are unable to donate, we can still use help with word of mouth and re-posting these events where they might be seen by individuals interested in participating. Updates will be provided weekly at a minimum. Stipend paying sessions are expected to be added to the offerings on Eventbrite within a week or two. Updates will be posted here the moment that is the case. \n\nDeveloping skill level session content that is relevant and appropriate to users across the spectrum is a high priority. \n\n\n"},{"attributes":{"underline":true,"bold":true},"insert":"Where we want to go: "},{"insert":"\n\nStart providing stipend payments to Cryptocurrency / ERC-20 / dApp Webinar Participants - (Highest Priority)\n\nDevelop and offer virtual meet up sessions that apply to more target end-users, such as cryptocurrency naive, ERC-20 naive but cryptocurrency familiar - (In Progress) \n\nUtilize the incentivized participation of these events to develop analytics for dialing in world-class content as well as the most effective platforms and marketing campaigns - (To Do)\n\nUntil the COVID-19 crisis is over, the focus will remain the incentivization of ERC-20 / MakerDAO based learning meet-up for all. \n\n"},{"attributes":{"underline":true,"bold":true},"insert":"Conclusion"},{"insert":"\n\nAlthough grant funding here has been non-existent to date, we continue to update the Grant regularly as well as assess the mission in response to the health and economic crisis that is happening concurrently to align the purpose to provide humanitarian aid and economic benefit first and foremost.\n\nAside from currency donations, help that can be provided includes:\n\nMarketing Help - Passing along via social media shares or more formal and impacting, anything helps.\n\nNetworking Help - Are you personally, or do you know a stake holder in a major dApp or ERC-20 aligned offering that may be able to donate? Let us know so that we can send a proposal for sponsorship.\n\nPresenter / Content Creation - Want to get involved and edit / create content or lead a session. Idea for a particular type of session? Please reach out.\n\nThank you for taking the time to read this Grant. \"This to shall pass\" \n"}]}
