I wholeheartedly support this grant proposal as the goals mentioned are all clear!


Thank for the support


Incredible proposal, great things are coming for Latin America!


That’s a cool suggestion. With a pretty simple and accurate description of what the event is all about. I only wanted to ask a few questions:

1/ On the budget, I’m not quite clear on the calculated budget. In the table, the final amount is listed as - $4,731.61. But in the proposal you are only asking for 2365.8. Am I correct that you just decided to split the budget equally between DAO and Chainlink?

2/ How will you measure the success of this event? By issuing new certificates, increasing the number of subscribers in the groups or some other criteria?

3/ Will someone from the advocates help you in organizing this event? Since at this stage there are quite a lot of members from Spain.

Thank you!

P.S Also I’m not quite sure if the links work for forum users, so I’ll leave them here.


I believe 50% of the cost is covered by Chainlink, but Lorena will reply soon (currently travelling to Paris).


Hi. Thank for the questions:

  1. the total budget will be pay between The Graph and Chainlink. I have include the total amount for transparency.
    2.- The success of this event will be measure in 2 ways: first, new subgraph users. Second new members of The Graph community (and new advocates application). The workshops always are focus in developersand have more users and subgraphs.
  2. Juan Rodriguez Defago (ex DAO member) will be one of the speaker. And at least 4 other advocates will be organizing the event. The advocates will be from Argentina, no Spain.
    Please let me know for any other question

In full support of this proposal!

My only question is if substreams and substream powered subgraphs will be covered in the “The Graph, subgraphs y mas” section?

I know substreams are a huge point of focus and outreach for the Core Devs so it would be great if the developers in attendance at this event can learn about them and how much faster they make The Graph :slight_smile:


Hi @Mr.1776.

Thanks for your question. Juan Rodriguez Defago from the core dev GraphOps will be in charge of the technical presentation and will be cover subgraph and substreams.

He will explain what The Gaph is and why we are interested in subgraphs.
After that, he will explain subgraph, how they work, how to put them together (what parts they have, how these parts interact and what they allow us to do), code examples, and comparison with substreams.



The presentation of the project will be in the public-voice-chat channel on the Graph AdvocatesDAO Discord server on July 25th at 18:00 UTC. Entrance is open and everyone is welcome to come in and ask their questions during the presentation!

Thank everyone for your attention!
