What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
Not many videos about The Graph have been published on the Internet. And those that are available, unfortunately, do not convey the essence of the protocol, or are made using low-quality graphics, and are difficult to perceive. We would like to make a short, beautiful video, and talk about how exactly The Graph is made (instead of talking about what data indexing is or how blockchain works).
What can you share about any past work that is relevant to this grant?:
We write scripts targeted at an audience with an average level of knowledge in blockchain. We target people who have a basic understanding of how blockchain works, as well as a cursory understanding of the crypto market and its key players. Our viewer has probably already used dApps on the simple purchasing/trading/borrowing/staking level. Our task is to immerse this user deeper and explain in simple words what technology lies behind a particular project. In doing so, we take the presentation format very seriously and try to dig deep, figuring out what is under the hood of technologies and projects and what exactly makes them special. For example, this is how we explained what rollups are: What are Еthereum Rollups and How Do They Work? Rollups Explained in Simple Terms - YouTube
We create distinctive visuals. The DeFi Teller team uses only original illustrations and takes a thoughtful approach to the process of video storyboarding. Our team of illustrators and animators works tightly with the editorial team, and the team of the project we’re reviewing. For example, our Polkadot video is now featured on the network’s introductory documentation page: Getting Started · Polkadot Wiki
Can you share any information about current/past web3 experience?:
Why are you interested in contributing to The Graph and/or web3?:
The goal of the DeFi Teller project is to make DeFi education accessible and comprehensible to everyone and make learning easy and popular. Shift the paradigm from “what coin to buy to make money” and try to motivate new users to learn the technology behind DeFi projects. The Graph as an infrastructure-shaping protocol is no exception. And we’d like to talk more about the protocol and thus attract users’ attention to it. The video produced as a result could also be used for the documentation of the project.
