Building and developing education topics that bridge content in whitepapers for various chains and protocols in easy-to-understand language. I currently have the basic outline of the project detailed in within a Medium publication but want to grow and host the material on its own site and promote the content to a broader audience across social media. In addition to covering whitepaper “breakdowns”, there will be featured Op-Eds that will cover recent trends and news events going on. The plan is ro release 3-4 well-written articles a month that are roughly between 1,500-2000 words per article or a 5-7 minute read.

What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
As mentioned above in the summary, the project is aimed at targeting technical content and putting it into a form that non-engineering/developers can easily understand to help build the competency of the crypto community as a whole.
What can you share about any past work that is relevant to this grant?:
I have been writing on Medium over the past 1.5 years and have had numerous successful data science/Python articles doing this exact thing. I have 63 articles and just over 80,000 views in Medium and plan to build and expand in the Crypto space. Since the initial sponsorship of this project would come from The Graph, it will have one article dedicated to topics surrounding The Graph. My Medium profile can be viewed here: Miguel Saldana – Medium and my WPDeciphered publication page can be seen here: White Papers Deciphered – Medium
Can you share any information about current/past web3 experience?:
I have been in the web3 space for just under 2 years and am a senior ambassador for Sarcophagus
DAO ($SARCO), Creative team at Conceal Network ($CCX), and Project Catalyst Veteran Proposal Assessor for Cardano.
Why are you interested in contributing to The Graph and/or web3?:
I believe that web3 and crypto are at an interesting crossroads where education is the key to mainstream adoption. A large part of the items either negatively attributed or perceived about web3 is largely due to ignorance and/or lack of understanding of how it works. The Graph is an ideal piece of the puzzle enabling data extracting to perform analytics and insights, which is why I personally became interested in becoming a part of The Graph community in this form.
