Grant ID: 2q52f19
To educate newcomers and enhance the community onboarding, the GRTDataHub Chatbot provides the most up to date documentation, text and video tutorials in seconds of receiving the question from a user. This instant support in whatever role they would like to take part in The Graph ecosystem will ensure new GRT holder can contribute promptly and with accurate and current information / tutorials on how to do so. Not everyone learns the same way, some cannot easily interpret instruction or guides through reading text alone. I have made an active effort to ensure that video tutorials are also included within the chatbot response where possible. So that all users can get the most out of this tool.
The chatbot will be kept up to date at all times, any new GRT news / features will added within a 24-48 hour period (target) with documentation and tutorials if applicable.
Chatbot to be made multilingual (working closely with community admins and translators). Priority based on active users using the app and community interest. This will take a lot of time and community communications. Not all guides are available in other languages currently and I have been contacted by community admins about this. I would like to support their communities the best that I can.

What can you share about any past work that is relevant to this grant?:
www.GRTDataHub.com is my first solo project. It is used daily within mulitple GRT communties to access easy to interpret data about GRT, in positvely trending bar chart and line graph format.
Can you share any information about current/past web3 experience?:
I have been a part of the GRT community since Dec 2020. I am currently learning more Web Dev skills now that my app has been a success and I have enjoyed learning coding.
Why are you interested in contributing to The Graph and/or web3?:
I would like to think the community see me as an approachable developer and community member. I am still very much a novice with only starting to code (self-taught through Udemy) only 20 months ago. I have tried to fit in 2 hours a day minimum and I have not wanted to stop since.
I spend between 1-2 hours daily reading through telegram and discord, often interacting with the GRT community, multiple nationalities and across a multitude of groups; sharing content, and data analytics. I endeavour to create a positive attitude towards the The Graph project and portray the data analytics as a continuously progressive and growing ecosystem.
I have applied for The Graph advocacy but at the time of submitting this grant I am yet to receive a response. Although, I am not officially an advocate but I do often carry out multiple roles within the scheme and have done prior to the launch of The Graph Advocates. For example I tend to cover a lot of the following aspects, community care, technical teacher and Web3 welcomer. I do this because I enjoy helping the community to grow, and providing education to those who want to learn; this is something that I always keep in the forefront of my mind when designing the chatbot. If it can help the GRT community then I have achieved my goal.
