I am pretty confident in organizing our birthday party in Dec after our meetup last month in Chengdu. Another local university and one web3 company actually invites us to share more on Graph and Pinax, we will invite all people come to our party.
-Audience. Web3 developers in Chengdu(20), Pinax Team(10),Students from Chengdu University of IT(40), Students from Sichuan University(40).
-Schedule. 1. Graph ecosystem update; 2.Pinax Update; 3. How to use graph in Dapp; 4 Q&A; 5 Social and Lucky Draw.
-Attendee Engagement: Q&A ,Social and Lucky Draw
-Venue. We will find a place can accomodate 100+ person and we can use to put on our decroation for our party.
-Specific sessions. We will invite the developers who are now using Graph in their Dapp to share.

Thanks for taking this proposal to the Forum, your contribution is really valuable to the Ecosystem, I have a few questions here after checked all your info.

1: Do you have more detailed breakdown for the budget, seems $1200 for Swag is too much.

2: Is there a PDF that you will use for the birthday events presentation, and how you will onboard more devs.

1 Swag and gift together. $1200. quite comparable with other proposal I think. We will also take a look what other proposals will buy as gift.
2 We plan to invite devs from Chengdu local developer to join and share at our event. Birthday events presentation, We will also take a look how other proposals will share. Thus we can make sure our event reach to a global standard.

Hi @doxe01.eth @andreea_cia @Mr.1776 , I just felt obliged to organize such a birthday party for Graph. If it is not that necessary for now, I can centainly cancel my proposal. Could you pls just dropped me something? Thx!


It depends on you, like if you really want to do it, we can go ahead and make a presentation, so you can show all the things to grant committee. And we will decide to proceed, it or no. But yeah, if you want to cancel the grant due to any factor or obstacle for you, we admit your decision and in no way will judge you or any like that.

Thank you!!

I still want to make it happen. As a devoted Graph Advocate, how I can miss a chance to celebrate the birthday party for Graph? Haha~~

The presentation of the project will be in the public-voice-chat channel on the Graph AdvocatesDAO Discord server on November 28th at 22:00 UTC. Entrance is open and everyone is welcome to come in and ask their questions during the presentation!

Thanks everyone for your attention!


The proposal was closed due to lack of timing to arrange this specific event as there is a strict time constraint.

We have sent you a more detailed explanation in a separate email. We want also to thank you for your submission, and we look forward to continuing working with you for future contributions.

It’ a Greate application for Graph Birthday party 2023
