Read the proposal: Title: BanklessDAO - Balancer campaign - Google Docs
Date: 27 August 2021
We propose to establish an educational and marketing partnership between BanklessDAO and Balancer.
In the framework of its grants program, Balancer declared to be ready to award up to 10k to Bankless DAO + some incentives for a liquidity mining program.
Bankless DAO is strongly committed in its educational purposes and considers Balancer one of the most innovative and reliable DeFi protocols. Some members of the Bankless DAO outbound-grant-squad therefore decided to apply for a Balancer grant.
Balancer has asked to present a program with the indication of milestones, which will be connected to part payments. The organization of the work requires a prior consent of the community.
MISSION & VALUES ALIGNMENT
The mission and values of Balancer are aligned with what Bankless DAO considers fundamental in guiding people towards an economically more inclusive and independent life.
We propose the realization of:
- educational content (textual and graphical) explaining Balancer’s main features and the advantages of 80/20 pool solutions;
- a shared marketing campaign, to promote the values of BanklessDAO and Balancer and to advertise the pool, also including contests;
- incentives for subscribing to the 80/20 pool at Balancer.
(The educational content created could be subsequently absorbed into Bankless Academy or to create a static form of educational content that can be shared both online and via slides and documents.).
The total expected to carry out the educational, marketing and incentive campaign is 340,000 BANK. Balancer’s grant will cover apx. 50% of the costs.
The breakdown of the expected costs is as follows:
Champions: @Eagle, @Grendel50 hours = 50K BANK
Edu + Writers + Designers: 140 hours = 140K BANK
Pool specialist: 15 hours = 15K BANK
Analyst: 15 hours = 15K BANK
Campaign, PR+influencers: 50K BANK
Liquidity incentives for the pool: 70K BANK
Total: 340K BANK
GRANT: 10K USD = ab. 160K BANK (0,0625 USD)
To fund: 180K BANK
The BanklessDAO logo will be used in educational content and in the marketing campaign.
The aim of the campaign is:
educational, therefore impossible to measure with certain metrics
to create awareness about the existence of the BANK/WETH pool and its functioning
It will therefore be possible to link the success of the campaign with the eventual success of the pool (although this would not be the main focus of the project)
- Present a program with milestones to Balancer
- Involve community members in the project: We aim to create a team that brings together veteran and new members, so as to allow more and more people to participate in the work of the DAO and projects.
- Create the requested output
- I agree
- I do not agree
