Grant Proposal: ETHTaipei side event - The Graph/Graph AdvocatesDAO - the first meetup in Taipei

Grant ID: 868780tee

Summary:

This will be the first meetup for The Graph/Graph AdvocatesDAO in Taiwan and Taipei. I have been to several events and shared the awareness of The Graph. I got feedback from the community, not only developers but also enthusiasts. It’s time to expand the community to inform more people about The Graph. I hope we can share the knowledge and answer the questions from the community IRL in a relaxed mood during ETHTaipei.

I have read and agree to the privacy policy:
true

Describe what your project does or is aiming to do in 50 characters or less:
I want to hold a side event during the ETHTaipei 2024.
As the first Graph/Graph AdvocatesDAO event in Taiwan, let more developers know how the Graph works and what’s been different in the past years.

If available, please enter a link to your project below:

How far along are you?:
I booked the venue and almost booked the T-shirts.
I’m looking for PT workers and photographers.
Others are waiting for specific pricing.
I want to invite members using Chinese from The Graph to share further details of The Graph. (We have a candidate and checked the visa is OK)

Why did you pick this idea to work on? Do you have domain expertise in this area? How do you know people need what you’re making?:
I attended several events in Taiwan and shared the Graph with others. However, some people said integrating with their project took a lot of work. But I know it’s different between now and that time.

What’s new about what you’re making? What substitutes do people resort to because it doesn’t exist yet (or they don’t know about it)?:
People in Taiwan are not so familiar with The Graph. They might use some centralized services, but I know people like me believe in decentralization.

What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
Let developers in Taiwan know more about the latest status of The Graph, and more people join the community.

How will you measure success?:
The number of attendees.
The developers let The Graph list in their tech stack (or in consideration).
The number of newbies in the Chinese Telegram group.

What milestones will you achieve in the coming weeks/months, with or without the grant?:
I will make sure everything is going well and hold the meetup successfully. I will do a presentation about Graph AdvocatedsDAO in the meetup, too.

Please select who you think will benefit from your project?:
Subgraph Developers, Other, Delegators

How much funding are you looking for? (USD):
1920

Provide a breakdown of your requested funding:
venue 300
food & drink 500
sticker 80
T-shirts 700
pull-up banner and acrylic stand 70
PT worker for guide and misc. 130
photography 100
freight 40

Have you applied for (or already received) funding from somewhere else?:
No

Can you share any information about current/past web3 experience?:
I’m a graph advocate and working in the industry.

Why are you interested in contributing to The Graph and/or web3?:
I work in the industry. We should have something like blockchain against centralized power. I always share the vision with my friends and co-workers.
The Graph is more decentralized than the alternatives.
The community of The Graph is friendly and willing to help.

Are you applying as a team or individual?:
Team

What type of grant are you pursuing?:

I had paid for the venue and stickers.
Get the sample of the T-shirt and keep processing.
The photographer and PT workers are almost confirmed.
According to Martin’s suggestion, we will try finding sponsors to improve this event.
And I will ask a blockchain media in Taiwan to promote this meetup.

Thanks for the presentation today,

Sorry, one of the guests is from Malaysia and works for Pinax; I misunderstood that Pinax or the Foundation would pay for him.
I have an additional budget to ask below:

Flights: 300 USD
Accommodation: 200 USD (100 USD/day)
ETHTaipei Ticket: 100 USD

The total updated amount is 2520 USD.

Here is the breakdown spreadsheet.

He will pay additional accommodation and fees besides above.

Please evaluate it.
And the committee members who had voted, please review it. @juliannaMLN @pdiomede @PeterPan

Congratulations! The majority decision of the Grant Committee has concluded to recommend this proposal to the DAO.

In order to receive official approval from the DAO, a corresponding on-chain vote needs to be conducted on DAOHaus that will determine the DAO decision. A member of the Grant Committee will reach out to you via email with instructions on next steps to prepare for the on-chain funding proposal, which requires prior completion of KYC and consent to the Grant Agreement.

Thank you for all your effort to present a strong proposal aiming to grow The Graph and web3 ecosystem!
