Grant ID: 357jq6v
What I realized is that The Graph is actually quite well known in Korea in terms of investment, but most of the people does not realize the mechanism of the GRT, How they can delegate, How they can participate in the community and etc. Believe that is one of the reasons why GRT delegation rate is not rising in a steep rate.
As a Korean Youtuber running telegram, youtube, twitter and etc I would love to contribute to such issues by introducing people to the GRT, the ways in which they can utilize their GRT through Delegation, the upcoming Migrations, and ways in which they can participate in the GRT community.
I am proposing to create 4 high quality videos with
Topic regarding the overall explanation of the GRT ecosystem and its need in blockchain infrastructure ecosystems
The ways in which people can actually become delegators or curators through the graph explorer. Appropriate ways and things to consider when doing so. The process of connecting Korean exchanges (UPBIT, Bithumb and etc) to the graph explorer.
When the hosted services are fully on the graph network, explaining such event, the potential it has with the future of GRT
- which will be about an upcoming event (maybe local?) which is related to the GRT ecosystem for future planned.
Most of my videos vary in length from 15min ~40 min, and for topics regarding a lot of explanations (ex. explaining the GRT ecosystem and the roles of different members in running the infrastructure), the video can be longer.
I work as a blockchain researcher also, so I often aim to make my video’s quality high as possible, but also interesting to attract as many audiences as possible, both long-term investors and newbies.

Provide a breakdown of your requested funding:
4 Videos of $500 for each.
For some examples of my research/ videos
This is my medium writing (27min) shortly going over the potential of GRT and its need in the blockchain infastrucutre nature.
Could look into my videos
I always make sure that the videos are of high quality with deep insights toward long-term visions of different protocols to make them stand out from normal short 5~8min promotion videos.

What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
What I believe is that the South Korea market is one of the big market existing in the Crypto Space.
However, apart from its exchange volume, most of people do not consider crypto as ‘utilizing asset’ or ‘long term investment’ but rather focus greatly on trading short-term volatility.
The main reason behind this is because
- the assets in Korean exchanges need extra processes to be connected to the overall crypto space
- Most of the people never actually participate in the ecosystem, do simple tasks such as delegation/ stating and more to get involved.
- Not enough Korean educational materials explaining the mechanisms and the importance of various protocols in the crypto ecosystem.
Through my educational contents I am aiming to tackle the above 3 main problems.
What can you share about any past work that is relevant to this grant?:
- https://link.medium.com/qdiwbbk59tb (Korean about GRT)
- https://link.medium.com/lj2gpJJ59tb (English about OCT)
- bit.ly/bqyoutube180 (Youtube videos for education)
Can you share any information about current/past web3 experience?:
I’ve been working as a Near Protocol Korean DAO member and StarkNet Korean DAO member for the last year.
And have ran youtube/twitter/medium articles/ telegram to spread the WEB3.0 world to the South Korea market.
Why are you interested in contributing to The Graph and/or web3?:
I am a big fan of blockchain infrastructure Projects. What I believe is that the infrastructure system is the most important system of all in the blockchain space, and keeping it decentralized is one of our biggest challenges of the century.
Plus, for me WEB3.0= Semantic Web+ Decentralization of Data, and to make WEB3.0 a reality I believe decentralization of Data is the most important aspect of all.
The Graph offers a unique solution to the blockchain indexing sector which solves such issues so I wanted to find ways to contribute to the system through my local area to make the future of WEB3.0 achievable for all of us.
