Provide a breakdown of your requested funding:
This initial proposal to the Graph Foundation is to build a light integration of the Graph blockchain as well as the GRT token to the Quidli API and app environment.
This will enable us to offer GRT to our user base of 600+ organizations (notable users include ETHDenver, OrangeDAO, Xooglers, SOSV, dlab) as an option to distribute as micro-incentives across browsers, email, Slack and or Discord via Quidli’s hosted sharing wallet application.

Request: 3,000 in GRT to implement the first two steps of the outlined roadmap ● 1,500 to cover dev costs & general hosting/maintenance
● 1,500$ to deploy as incentives to reward our user base at the Quidli level

What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
Added value for the Graph partnering with Quidli:

  • Maintain a strong and loyal community by rewarding your top contributors (you already have an amazing community of +36k members on your discord)
  • Create a culture of recognition amongst the The Graph community through Discord
  • Promote & Awareness of the GRT token amongst new holders (quidli existing users)

What can you share about any past work that is relevant to this grant?:
So far in 2022, we’ve added 10 new coins on quidli (including NEAR, DOT, RLC, FIO) and we’re very interested in partnering with The Graph Community

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

Justin Ahn - CEO

Why are you interested in contributing to The Graph and/or web3?:
We share a common vision with The Graph: the community aspect is essential to the success of a web3 project (Delegator, Indexer, Advocate are the core part of your strategy).
We do think you can leverage an even bigger and loyal community by recognizing and rewards your best community members with small tips in GRT (directly on discord):
For major achievements (ex. pushing new features into prod ahead of schedule), kudos for jobs well done (ex. onboarding new users) and contributions (social media activities, content creation).
