Grant Proposal: Hype Squad

Grant ID: 346ne94


We are building the first polish DAO community around blockchain and Web3 technology on various social media channels - Twitch, Discord, Twitter, etc. The main idea is to bring blockchain closer to the young people, and at the beginning, members will not know that they are using blockchain to form, vote, and decide about the community’s future. So the first part is to make the community use blockchain technology without knowing it’s some new technology.

The first acquisition of the members will be grapevine in the web3 community, the next presentation at schools, and giveaways. After we reach a certain point of members, we will start influencers marketing (lives, interviews, etc)

Host 1h presentation in 15 high schools in Warsaw about Web3 (per quarter) - it will be the leading way to reach out to new DAO members and future blockchain users at the beginning. It gives us a minimum of 200 students and 20 teachers per school - 3300 per quarter.

Lectures will start in January 2023. The main goal is to gather a community of young people and educate them about web3.

We already have a partnership with Web 3 Devs Poland and their network.

What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
In Poland, there are a lot of people who want to enter the web3 world but the knowledge is really hard to find and we need more educational materials right now.
The main goal is education around: knowledge, career, business development, and investment. The project is set up for the long term, and we are presenting a plan for first 12 months.

What can you share about any past work that is relevant to this grant?:
Community building and education. I used to work on web3 projects, and in each of them, my main tasks were communication and community building - I included my experience below. I was hired to do other projects because I’m good at them. Another can in these organizations was the education part - many workers were hired who didn’t have web3 knowledge and I was responsible for training.

In the past year, I participated 8 blockchain events, including NFT.NYC, NFT.LONDON, GITEX (Dubai). I was there cuz C-level has decided that I have well-developed soft skills to talk with new people, explain the idea and encourage them to action.

Can you share any information about current/past web3 experience?:
