LIDO Nation Catalyst Proposals
Content & Insights: Multi-Channel
Our proposal to add an investigative journalist to the lido team!
Real Journalism = Cardano Insights
Our proposal to onboard new humans onto catalyst!
LIDO Nation is big on Cardano and Big on Catalyst
We have participated as Proposal Assessor, a Veteran Proposal Assessor, in Catalyst Circle governance meetings -- and of course as voters!
We run a Blockchain Learning Center in Kenya, thanks to a funded catalyst Fund 7 proposal.
Thanks to successful fund 6 and 7 proposals, we are one track to have all of our content library in swahili, english, and spanish.
12+ hrs/wk twitter spaces
We co-host Cardano Over Coffee every week day @ 14:30 UTC and host new to blockchain every Tuesday at 3:30am UTC.
2hr/wk Zoom office hours
We hold 30 minute zoom office hours throughout the week to help anyone rubber duck-it. Get help with a catalyst proposal. Ask questions, etc.
Catalyst Proposal Assessor
We've been helping review proposals since fund 6. We're gearing to teach our Kenyan community how to be awesome proposal assessor!
Stake Pool Operators
We run LIDO stake pool on the mainnet as well as the testnet! We've never missed a block on mainnet.
Open Source contributors
We maintain the castalyst proposal open api project on github. Also planning to host and offer it for free to anyone wanting to build tools around catalyst proposal data.
Catalyst Townhall Participants
We watch every townhall, mostly in person, sometimes the replay on YouTube. We are also active participants in after townhall rooms!
Thanks to a Fund 7 winning proposal, we run a blockchain learning center Kenya, mentoring developers to help businesses build on Cardano.
ADA Pay Plugin - WordPress/Laravel
Our proposal to make adding Cardano payment to any WordPress site with a plugin! Vroom! Vroom!
Migrating from ETH: Newcomer Setup
Our proposal to help current Eth users and businesses make sense of Cardano!
Our Community Partners
I agree 💯% that a NEW perspective is needed. Blockchain is a new tool, but how do we use that new tool?
I believe the Cardano Community needs to connect much more in Project Catalyst itself. Cardano is a scientific, methodical, "fact based" community which is why I believe in it, but at the same time, I feel that there is that lack of connection that you mention. It almost feels like the Cardano Community is building a playground, but few are playing in it:
I take the perspective that I am doing Gonzo journalism right now in Project Catalyst through my Ideascale proposals and comments themselves. It is my attempt to further connection here and everywhere.
I don't want to regret this opportunity and later say that I knew my ideas were new, so I would love your or anyone else from LIDO Nation's opinion on two of my F8 proposals, but no pressure at all.
Very nice proposal, well thought out and complete, which is always appreciated. Keep up the good work multiplying and deepening connections to Catalyst!
This is an exemplary proposal. Quickly three things:
the headline tells a story and entices.
I kinda love this part " FREE --> Organize and host a 24-hour Governance-Day Twitter marathon for each Voting Round in 2022 "
Addressing the Challenge Metric one by one. It seems like an obvious thing to do in a proposal, but often overlooked.
Very well done! I'm curious to read your "What makes a good proposal?" blog post. Cheers and I hope to see you and your journalism around here. Let's work together to bring the issues of journalism to the conversation.
Proposal Translation with Human QA
Our proposal to translate funded proposal details into spanish to empower spanish native to help keep those theme accountable and learn from their successes.
Open Source Translate 2 Earn Webapp
Our proposal to opensource our translation management system and add more features to it to power translations across Cardano!
