Hi Thanks for your application.
In addition of your answers:
1.- Could you confirm how many speakers do you plan to have?
2.- There is any advocate in charge to talk about The Graph?
3.- Do you know the topics to present about The Graph?
4.- Will the meetup be recorded or streamed?
5.- Do you have a confirmed date for the event?



Thank you for taking the time to apply! Since a lot of questions have already been asked, I’ll just wait for the answers for now.

But with the recommendations I would like to say. One, I would recommend that you look for advocates who can help you as you prepare and also write a scenario of what you want to tell about The Graph.

Maybe if we’re talking about merch, I would do a fewer amount, but give them out to people who were active at the event or asked an interesting question. Also as an option, you could do a quiz.

Besides consider for yourself a platform that will help you in preparation.

These are my personal thoughts. DYOR.

Thank you!!! And good luck to you!



Thank you for your submission! All of my questions have already been posted by my fellow Grant Committee members except for one:

  • It is a little concerning that over 50% of your proposed budget is allocated to drinks, swag, and snacks. Can you speak to that approach and why that funding wouldn’t be more effective if it was allocated elsewhere?

Thanks again for applying. Looking forward to your response!

Thanks once again for the questions

  1. We will have 4 speakers for the event.
  2. We will request some advocates to talk about the graph, we are planning to livestream the event so that other participants in different regions can join us.
  3. Thanks @doxe01.eth for sharing the academy platform, we will get our presentation and topics ready from thegraph Academy and make ourselves more familiar with the resources.
  4. We have confirmed 25th March as an event Date.

About the proposed budget, we plan for 50 participants whereby $8 and $4 is allocated to each participant for lunch and a drink respectively.
We can reduce the number of merch to 10 printed t-shirts ($76) following @doxe01.eth guidance and they will be given out to active participants.

Unfortunately, this grant proposal did not generate the level of support in the community to move it to the next phase of the grant application process.

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 community support.

Best Regards,
Graph AdvocatesDAO
