I have read and agree to the privacy policy:

Describe what your project does or is aiming to do in 50 characters or less:
We are excited to introduce the The Graph Arabic community, a regional initiative aimed at creating awareness about The Graph.

How far along are you?:
Preparation stage

Why did you pick this idea to work on? Do you have domain expertise in this area? How do you know people need what you’re making?:
The Arabic-speaking region consists of 25 Arab speaking countries which are home to around 422 million speakers. According to a analytics conducted by Triple A, there more than 10 million users own cryptocurrencies in the Arab world, so we are have a large market full of promising opportunities.

What’s new about what you’re making? What substitutes do people resort to because it doesn’t exist yet (or they don’t know about it)?:
Unfortunately, little English is spoken in Arabic-speaking countries and members cannot follow the latest updates on The Graph and misunderstand some topics. It’s hard for the community to express themselves in English.
We will build an Arabic community and make content in Arabic to help Arabic speakers understand and involve themselves in it.

What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
Through this proposal, our primary objective is to cultivate a vibrant community of developers, and blockchain enthusiasts.
We seek to educate users and developers who speak Arabic about The Graph that will help to involve them into the The Graph ecosystem and contribute to it.

How will you measure success?:

Hello! Thank you for your detailed proposal.

I am not extremely familiar with the Arab Graph Community, but I am relatively sure most of the activities you’re proposing are already being carried out by Graph Advocates as part of their contributions to the Graph Advocates program.

However, this proposal might be great to boost the capacity of the Arab community!

I will ping them here so they can take a look at the proposal and give their opinion!

Yes,that’s true, literally sounds like performing the community care role :sunglasses:


Thank you for your detailed grant proposal. I’m glad to see your enthusiasm for building The Graph Arabic community. I have a few questions

  1. What mechanisms will you have in place to ensure the accuracy and consistency of the translations? Have you explored the possibility of enabling content translation through a contribution form? This approach could allow community members to actively contribute by translating The Graph content into Arabic and submitting their contributions via the designated form.

  2. Could you provide a more detailed breakdown of the costs for each component? This will help the reviewers understand how the funds will be allocated and how well the project aligns with the grant amount.

  3. Can you elaborate on your approach to organizing webinars and events? What topics will you cover and how do you plan to ensure that they are engaging and informative for the participants?

  4. Can you share more about the specific skills and experience of your team members? This will help demonstrate the team’s ability to successfully execute the proposed activities.

Hello there, firstly i want to say that i agree with Colson’s point that most of the activities are already carried out by the advocates and there are already social networks for Arab created on twitter and telegram.
Other than that i have some questions:

  1. How do you plan to ensure that the funds allocated for salaries and expenses are used efficiently and transparently over the six-month period also can you provide an estimated breakdown of the 3 goals you mentioned?
  2. Rather than building an academy what about translating the graph academy courses into Arabic?
  3. Will there be any technical workshop or webinar you will host?

Parts of this proposal are similar to what we have proposed in the past.
I wish you the best of luck!
Would love to see some work examples.


Hello! We noticed the presence of The Arab Graph community, but it has not been active since 2021, but now after reviewing again, we found another Arab Graph community on Telegram and Twitter that publishes the latest news, so we apologize to the current mods and advocates for that, we do not seek to take your place or compete with you.
In any case, we still aspire to boost the capacity Arab community and to do our work as we explained in the proposal.

1- Our translation team has extensive experience and has worked with many large projects. After completing the translation, it will be checked by another person, thus ensuring the quality of the translation. We welcome any other ideas to ensure the quality of the translation.

2- Our team consists of 5 people (sometimes we hire additional people)

  • Leader
  • 2 Translators and content creators
  • Graphic designer
  • Marketer
    The team’s salaries will be about $2,800 per month, $16,800 in 6 months.
  • Event expenses and prizes
    Average $350 per month, $2,400 in 6 months
  • Website and academic construction expenses 800$

3- Webinars in the first two months will be about introducing the project and its features and about introducing Curators, Delegators …etc, after that, in order to ensure that the webinars are engaging and informative for the participants, we will conduct a survey for the members to let them decide which topic they want.

4- Most of the team has good experience (2 to 3 years) and the leader has 5 years of experience. The team has worked with big projects like Avax and Axelar.

If you have any other questions or an unclear point, we will be happy to answer you.

  • As indicated in the proposal, we have specific goals, and the team will work to achieve these goals according to the plan set in advance and according to the list of tasks. The funds will be distributed to each member of the team according to his efforts and according to the tasks he has completed. (Example: hosting an AMA event with another community). Event expenses are paid to a member of the team that will conduct the event + to another party (for example: hosting an AMA event with another community)
  • good idea! Of course we can translate the academic courses, we will also add some other courses and add the necessary updates on the previous courses.
  • Yes, of course! There will be technical webinars.

Thank you so much and best of luck


There have been quite a few questions regarding the proposal, so I’m more inclined to leave feedback on the proposal and clarify a few questions.

I’d like to start with the experience of the team, in general what you mentioned. Can you provide some links? Or other sources to verify the experience of your team and members individually.

You mentioned that you worked with such projects as Avax and Axelar. But you mentioned that you didn’t receive funding from other projects. Can you explain that in more detail?

Next, these are the materials you plan to create and translate. I’d like to hear what you mean by these? What topics will be covered, like for beginners, or will you be more focused on technical candidates?

How will you motivate participants to get involved in the ecosystem? You’ve specified, everything, but in the end it will just be a bunch of n people who may not interact with the protocol in any way. How do you plan to fix that? Or prevent it.

Thank you!

This document contains a sample of our previous work: . - Google Docs

  • Yes, we have worked with several projects, but because of the confidentiality agreement, we cannot disclose the funding, sorry for not mention this in the proposal.

  • We will create and translate resources for beginners and some resources for technicians. We will also seek to build partnerships and make events with other technical initiatives such as:, this will help us to reach new developers and users

  • We will work to motivate members to participate in the protocol through:

  • Highlighting the role and importance of the protocol in Web 3
  • Highlighting the roles available in the protocol and how they suit all people (technical and non-technical), and how these roles contribute effectively to Web 3 and decentralization
  • Create competitions and events and giveaways

Thanks for your questions! If you have any other questions we will be happy to answer.


Thank you for submitting your grant application! It is very thorough. It sounds like you and your team have a lot to offer, but as a few others have said, almost all of the work you’re proposing are identical to Graph Advocate contributions and there is also an existing Arab Graph community.

I’m voting no on the proposal (for now), but I’d highly encourage you and your team members to engage with the existing Arab Graph Community and apply to become Graph Advocates to carry out this work.

Thanks again for your detailed submission.

Hello @doxe01.eth, we saw that you voted no, if you could please share your advice with us to improve our proposal or told us what are the weaknesses points so we can improve it, thank you.

I agree with the points mentioned above, most of your proposal overlays with the existing Advocate roles and most of the set goals can still be completed by individual contributions by the team members within their areas of interest - translators can contribute to the Arab community as Text Translators (we also have a proofreading process in place), content creators and graphic designers in their separate role as Content Creator advocates. We also have other roles like Technical Teacher, Event Event Evangelist and Community Care they may be interested in.

Since most of the budget is to be spent on the salaries of the teammates, I think delegating the individual advocates’ contributions and compensation for these to the DAO, would free up some space and budget for you to focus better on the plan for how to develop the Arab community.

BTW - who is Marketer and what is the person doing?


Thank you for sharing your proposal. I’ve carefully reviewed the points you’ve presented and wanted to provide my perspective and offer some points for consideration based on the insights you’ve shared:

  1. Graph Academy and Translation Bounties: It’s important to acknowledge the existing initiatives like The Graph Academy with ongoing translation bounties that are already offered for Arabic content. These efforts underscore The Graph Foundation’s commitment to catering to diverse linguistic needs.

  2. Arab Community: The Arab community on Telegram (730 members) and Twitter (590 followers) is a valuable foundation. This includes the participation, from long-standing delegators staking their GRT tokens for years, emphasising the strength of this community and the trust they have in the Graph ecosystem.

  3. Ahmed Mardini’s Initiative: I’d like to draw attention to Ahmed Mardini’s impactful initiative, which deserves recognition for its unique approach to community engagement. Specifically, his English tutorial, enriched with an interactive quiz leading to the minting of an NFT upon successful completion, stands as a remarkable achievement. The fact that this initiative garnered participation from over 6500 individuals, who successfully completed the guide and minted the NFT, serves as a testament to its effectiveness and community resonance. It highlights that a strong Arab community in Dubai can thrive and actively engage without relying exclusively on content presented in Arabic. This initiative showcases the immense potential of interactive educational methods in fostering engagement and knowledge dissemination within diverse linguistic contexts.

  4. Community News and Support: Recognizing that Advocates and the community are actively involved in news publication and support underscores a collaborative effort already underway. This collaboration minimizes duplicative efforts and maximizes resource utilization.

  5. Translation Process and Quality Control: Translating the Graph documents into Arabic, involve the role of text-translators Advocates translate following it by proofreading by different Advocates with that role. This meticulous approach ensures the accuracy and quality of content, aligning with the Foundation’s standards.

  6. Roles within AdvocatesDAO: Understanding the roles within AdvocatesDAO, such as content creators, community care and event evangelists, showcases a well-rounded approach to community engagement.

  7. Engagement Approach: My inclination leans more towards swags and community bundles for the elite members of our community. I firmly believe in encouraging hackathons bounties and active participation within The Graph’s ecosystem. Notably, a recent article published by The Graph outlined 23 diverse aspects that allow anyone to become involved and make valuable contributions. This approach aligns with my vision of fostering a culture of meaningful engagement and collaboration.

  8. Community Support and Events: Advocates, along with the dedicated community care role, are deeply involved in news dissemination and providing support. Additionally, Advocates holding the event evangelist role are orchestrating various engaging events. This synergy exemplifies a proactive and dynamic community environment.

  9. Comprehensive Content Creation: Acknowledging the multifaceted roles within AdvocatesDAO, including content creators, text-translators, event evangelists and technical teachers, underscores the holistic approach embraced in content creation, educational initiatives and event orchestration.

  10. Arab Community Initiatives: Actually, we have new initiatives awaiting the Graph Foundation approval, some of them are not yet announced.

  11. Localization and Advocacy: I would add that I prefer having Advocates on the ground in multiple Arab countries to onboard more people into the Graph and lead local communities underscores an essential approach to fostering localized engagement and growth. This strategy could significantly contribute to onboarding new participants and nurturing local communities.

Yes in general, many have already described suggestions for improving the proposal and in general on what can be done to achieve better results. I would also recommend to concentrate on a more realistic budget and on the contributions of advocates that can be made in the future. After all, all the things you have mentioned are not some unique ways of working, but all the things that advocates are currently doing in the program.

Thank you for the proposal! And all the details you added to it

I have few comments and questions though.

  • Can you tell us about your socials? Where are you planning to share all the materials? Links to channels would be great! We would love to see how you guys deliver the message!
  • where are you guys located? Where is your audience located?
  • from my experience there are not a lot of Arabic Blockchain developers. And if there are any, they would probably speak English. I’d love to hear your opinion about that

Greetings! @TheGraphArabia

Can you please check your email? Otherwise, alas I will have to close the grant due to your inactivity.

Thank you!

Unfortunately, this grant proposal did not generate the level of support, due to inactivity of grantee.

Thank you for submitting this proposal, and you are encouraged to stay engaged in the Graph community. You are also welcome to submit new grant applications in the future with proposals that may generate stronger gathering support.

Best Regards,
Graph AdvocatesDAO
