PROJECT TEASER

bDAO in Spanish is going to evolve into an independent Project from International Media Nodes, to start creating their own written content, AV content (YouTube Videos/Podcast),and translations (Bankless HQ, Bankless Publishing, Metasversal or Decentralized Arts content) We have grown over 150% in the last 3 months

SUMMARY:

Project Description:

BackGround:

In search of a wider audience and content expansion

Since the birth of bDAO in 2021, Lalo Cripto and AnaTech started the IMN Spanish node that is actually a referéndum for a lot of newcomers and has a very high push with the LATAM community. As far as we know, all the big tech content and media it’s in English and Spanish it’s the third most spoken language in the world, and with all the recent changes in the crypto space we need more content from LATAM, not only the translation of the high value media from bDAO but make something more gentrifed, with our problems, our limitations and the most important, our feelings.

Why? Because in our country we don’t have problems with banks, because we have about 75% of our population without a banking system (sadly we’re already bankless…), so we care more about decentralization of power, art, population poverty, public goods, crystal clear elections and coordination, maybe it’s more difficult for us to reach a centralized exchange or have a node in our homes, but we care and understand why we need to separate money from the state.

A lot of our goals right now are based on translating quality content to educate our audience, there are a lot of people in the Latin American ecosystem who are too busy to make ends meet, they don’t have access to credit or interbank transfers. With blockchain-based education and the tools that BanklessDAO offers in its newsletter and now us, aimed at creating digestible and targeted content for our population, we will drive more people to become bankless, to take advantage of instant, trustless, P2-2, immutable and traceable transactions. This is necessary in Latin America and we are aware of the importance of knowing the appropriate means to avoid falling victim to fraud or property damage.

Like we said, we’re evolving, no magic stones, just working, but as the month and the time goes by, we can’t translate more, we can’t do more, because our salaries are lower and we got this incentive to publish more and create more, and we just exploded, The community started looking for Bankless in Spanish and we’re getting more invitations to talk to MakerDAO, Starfox, LaLigaLand, Unlocked_Finance and other giants in the space that need a voice, but what happens in the next few months without proper compensation for our contributors’ time, they’re going to slow down and we don’t want to lose this renaissance. The downturn has hit us hard, we’ve reached about 50 contributors, but with only 8 newsletters to translate and 3 podcasts, no one has been able to work or contribute, and our motivation is to make bDAO great again in Spanish.

Past/preparatory activities

The Spanish node has been active since 1+ year and currently one of the top 3 best performing nodes in the IMN project. We have a core team of contributors with several months of experience in creating Bankless content as well as other content.

You can see all that we’ve done in this year over here: Our growth

MISSION

Technology has been part of human evolution from the plough to the future space flights, we have been in touch with our humanity with the foundation and sustainability of technology as a common good. But with each step we take, language becomes a greater barrier and information simply does not reach the right corners. In BanklessDAO in Spanish, we will use the media that exists today, written, audiovisual and social, to promote the importance of crypto knowledge and bring to people with access difficulties the financial, artistic and disruptive tools that will allow them to start their Bankless journey.

RETROSPECTIVE

The project has conducted several retrospectives in the past all resulting in similar conclusions. In order to receive external funding, the project needs to generate viewership and in order to generate viewership the contributors need a living wage.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

Why do we need more hours for content translation?

There are a lot of words and translation issues, but we’re very confident in our approach and we need to make sure that all the translations make sense and don’t lose the meaning. Because Bankless it’s getting memetic and all the new terms in crypto like “ultrasound money”, “triple edge asset”, “ethernomics” are going everywhere in the world and we want to be the same, to have the capabilities and the time to start being more active in the crypto community with translations faster, we mean as fast as we can once the content to be translated is published. Working in the international media nodes is great, but we can’t translate everything because we don’t have the budget, with our independence we will be more capable and have more time to translate more and more content, and also to create videos and translate the ones that are published in other subDAOs of Bankless.

Original content= Community Oriented

In other parts of the world, especially in LaTam, we are not aware of all the news that is going on in our countries, our population is more interested in the FED or the SEC and not in what is happening in El Salvador, Argentina or Mexico, and the taxes, laws and investigations are just being splashed around and we don’t know what is happening. With that in mind, we’re going to do more research on local projects, on ramp and off ramp in our banks, what’s happening to our families and how we can make our country more bankless.

Best Camera, best sound = Happy customer

This was an approach that we made in the Spanish node, to have professional or semi-professional microphones and HD-4K cameras to publish videos and content, as we know this is a quality standard of our subDAO, as far as we know the world demands every year more quality, best audio attached with better information, this is like a combo. But if we think deeper, to make a podcast, edit a video, buy equipment needs money and the priceless time, so our contributors need to use their new toys to make more content, interviews, research, spaces, and start to evolve as another bankless place to be called home.

So why not stay just as an IMN Node?

We want to work more (Yes you all read well), with all our free time, we have younger contributors who are very hungry for content and to start their Bankless journey, some of them are independent artists, students, doctors, who need more translations, content and budget to stop their web2 works and fully dedicate to Bankless as a way of being. We can’t stay in the Twitter spaces when we have to work from 08:00-21:00 (yes, some doctors work that time every day) or to record a video when we’re in Spain and we’re at school or working in the Rattrap office, so with this approach we’re going to achieve our freedom and produce more and more content every week.

It’s all about coordination

As far as we know, our team it’s very well connected, distributed and some of us have already meet in real life, so our relationship it’s getting more friction free, we have diverse interest, 3D art, NFT, Financial NFT, DAOs, Governance, Decentralization, Layers, and so many others that makes us bullish in our content. But we need someone to stay in touch with the DAO, and search for the best content, no only for Bankless or bounty related, just for fun or to make easier to the LaTam people to know more, we already know: “Knowledge it’s a great responsibility”

SEASONAL KPI

Ok, and how do you turn this on?

It’s not all about the budget, we are aware about this. We are not asking banks to get more cookies, it’s about our compromise and keeping the growing ecosystem more diverse and decentralized. We can’t just continue exploding, we need to be more sustainable and make the growth more stable. So we are planning to continue growing at least 10% monthly in every aspect.

Happier Members, mean more contento, so in the Season 8 (The next 13 Weeks), this are our goals:

CREATING VALUE?

Some of us are blue pilled

We read about AirDriops, YieldFarming, CryptoHacks and Bridges, but how we can use it, it’s a lot of content that Bankless it’s releasing tha isn’t translated, so we need to get our hands in that info, to get more subscriber and all or members get into the inner circle.

BRANDING

  • bDao in Spanish has their own design inspired by bDAO and BanklessHQ, but we think that we can subdivide in more diverse newsletters.
  • Creation of a jingle and our own flavor for any content that we create
  • We need more IRL, the whole crypto universe of meeting its about gaming, NFTs, and a little approach to DAOism, so we want to create a system to unify and talk about Bankless in every meeting that it’s nearby and be capable to onboard more people to continue growing.

COMMITMENTS

We are very happy with our friends from IMN and BanklessDAO so we are going to make some waves to keep the other nodes building.

  • 10% of the revenue of any bounty that bDAO in Spanish has it’s going directly to BanklessDAO
  • 5% of the revenue of any bounty that bDAO in Spanish has, it’s going directly to the IMN
  • All the team it’s going to be Layer 1, to continue working in this initiative and accept guest passes to claim for bountis.
  • Creating a multisig with 5/5 signers to protect the funds.
  • We have the approval of Metagovernance of Spanish Projects like NounsDAO amigos, to continue the decentralization of our decisions and funding.
  • As a subDAO we are going to be aligned with the Cyberpunk, Green Pill and ImpactDAO principles

FURTHER PROJECTS

We have more… Yup More to come

  • In Real Life events and more global events
  • ETH México…

Great to see this initiative by the Spanish media node team. The IMN project does a decent job with helping teams with bootstrapping themselves but it’s insufficient to fund a whole subDAO.

@CryptoReuMD and crew have been hard at work since many months and now they have finally achieved momentum to grow independently and forward the Bankless mission amongst Spanish speakers. I 100% support this initiative

Ty Fren. I admire all the work and the help that we are having from all the team. And we are looking to create more content and help more users to go Bankless :smiley:

Hi @CryptoReuMD! IlAlyhough I think this project is great, I just want to double check (even though I see it is not in the proposal title) that you are not seeking to be included in Season 8 Seasonal funding.
Am I correct to assume that although the timing may coincided with seasonal proposals, this project will go in front of the Grants Committee for review if it meets quorum?

Hiho! Yes this is related with seasonal proposal, we want to align our project with 8th season. And then, we think this experiment it’s strong enough to be for the long term, =).

@CryptoReuMD and the team fully support this and are happy to see how IMN projects evolve after the initial incubation.

This is the second project to graduate IMN successfully. keep it up @Jengajojo @MinaHasNoIdea, @raybankless.eth and team

Wow! Hiro, Thx! We are going to get this project, that all off you build, to every corner of the spanish scope :smiley:

Great push into the Spanish speaking world, realy good to expand there - a non brainer realy! Big thumbs up to the enthusiastic team spearheading this. Looking forward to how it will develop.

Could you let me know the figures in real terms when you are referring to: “We have grown over 150% in the last 3 months.” Is that membership? How big is the membership currently - how large was it three months ago?

Also, what role can/will the translators guild play in the new subDAO? Is there any form of collaboration envisaged? It would be good to take advantage of structures/work in bDAO that are already being funded.

What an amazing project, and I think so desperately needed! Wow!

As a member of both Spanish Node and Translators Guild, I have been working to establish a more clearly defined collaboration between IMNs and TG. How can we help Nodes and SubDAO like BanklessDAO en Español?

  • Providing a strong link and communication channel with bDAO
  • Onbaording new DAO members and channeling to respective language nodes
  • Creating Best Practices for Translation and other educational material, which is the project that excites me more atm!

As a Spanish member, if you need help, I’d be happy to be part of this!
