Since the reports I've drafted to articles. They are not complete and one is being edited by the team. Also published on new article: https://www.lidonation.com/en/posts/ethereum-and-cardano-node-clients, bring the to total published article to 3 at https://www.lidonation.com/en/tags/ethereum.
Still haven't attacked the landing page yet. I think when we have 6 or so articles that, that will be enough articles to start a story. Digging a lot into Ethereum proof of stake so we can capitalize on that .
Did not have any opportunity to work on this all month, with voting, 24hr governance, and catalyst explorer improvements. I was able to add a new dev to the lab in kenya who will be able to help after onboarding is complete.
With voting over and the new dev coming onboard, we should be able to still deliver the project on time.
Since our last report, we've written a total of 7 articles for this 12-article project and published a total of 5. Links to the 2 still in editing and the 5 published are provided in the 'evidence' section in the attached project spreadsheet.
With the upcoming publication of these 2 in mind (to be published by the end of Sept), we are on track for publishing by mid-December 2022 (our scheduled end date is December 26, 2022).
Topic selection, research, and interviews for our 2 upcoming October articles are underway, and both are on track.
Evidence of all tweets advertising the published stories mentioned to the 3250+ member audience (this number has grown by over 1200 since the beginning of this reporting), you can be found at the following Twitter accounts: @BenjaminOnChain, @Lido_Phuffy, & @LidoNation
The deliverables of this project were to deliver 12 articles about Project Catalyst, published on LidoNation.com. We have set a project timeline for publishing all the articles between June project launch and December project completion. We are on track to our timeline, with 7 articles published by end of September! All 7 articles, along with additional content relating to Project Catalyst that is not directly part of this project, can be viewed at LidoNation.com. Links to the specific articles pegged to this project, as well as the full project deliverable timeline, can be viewed in the attached documents.
We've published our second article https://www.lidonation.com/en/posts/ce-wallets-on-cardano-and-ethereum and have a pretty good idea of what the landing page will look like. Two articles are currently being developed and drafted.
Didn't make too much progress this month. Still on track, the testnet/vasil incident has set me back a little bit; need to respin up my testnet infrastructure.
Since our last report, we've published a total of articles, two more are slated for publishing before the end of July. One of those is in editing, and the other is near completion.
This puts us one article ahead of our goal of having 4 published by end of August for this project.
Links to published articles and the one in edit & dates can be found in attached project spreadsheet.
Topic selection, research, interviews for 2 September articles are underway-both on track.
Published the 5th of 12 Articles this month. Weekly Twitter shows continue as-planned.
Since our last report, we've published one article in Late June, and finished and fully edited two more articles, both to be published this next week.
Links to published/unpublished articles & dates can be found in attached project spreadsheet.
Topic selection & Research for 2 August articles underway-both on track.
Making great progress on the base PHP lib. I suspect by the next report, we should be able to facilitate a basic payment flow with ADA. Then we will turn our attention to the WordPress plugin.
The deliverables of this project are to publish 12 Articles about Project Catalyst in 7 months. I am only 2 months into the project, but have published 4 articles, so we are well on track. Articles can be found at these links: https://www.lidonation.com/en/posts/project-catalyst-an-invention-with-1000-steps https://www.lidonation.com/en/posts/project-catalyst-funded-proposals-mad-scientists-on-the-launchpad https://www.lidonation.com/en/posts/project-catalyst-funded-proposals-part-ii-mad-scientists-on-parade https://www.lidonation.com/en/posts/project-catalyst-all-the-news-thats-fit-to-print-july-2022
Still thinking through the ui/ux of the landing page and how the content will come together. Continuing to write content… the next article in the series is attached. Article is still be edited and not published yet.
Got a good idea of the current landscape of ada payments in the woocommerce/wordpress (limited and not user friendly) and laravel (non-existant) ecosystem. Got a plan and roadmap for my first deliverable. Next up, get coding!
Has gotten the ball rolling on the first three articles. Finding the lidonation equivalent in the ethereum space has been challenging. Since I'm trying to address non-technical crowd, I figure seeing how ethereum is being taught to non-technical crowds in that space would be a good north star for addressing the same cohort on how cardano works. I was able to find a couple of resources that is proving useful. I should have two these three articles ready to publish to lido nation by next project report. We've also made good progress on the ui/ux of the landing page for when we have a few articles published.
The first goal on our Roadmap was to secure a writer. Our writer has joined the team, as was reported last month.
Our second step on our Roadmap is to have the first articles published within the first 3-month period, and we are on track to reach this milestone. We are nearly completing the 1st article (scheduled publication - late June). Work commences on the 2nd of the first 3 articles (scheduled publication - early July), with the outline and first draft near completion. The second interview of two interviews is set for 6-22, the 1st conducted in early June, for our 3rd article (of 12) (scheduled publication - late July).
Two more articles are on track to be published in August, which will have us ahead of schedule.
Links to the first published stories will come in our July monthly report. We'll also send links as proof of the "cross-promotion across all social channels" for the articles published up to that point.
The Deliverables on this project are 12 Articles about Project Catalyst published to lidonation.com. I have completed 3 articles and am ahead of schedule. Links to published articles with original illustrations in the attached report. They can also be seen at lidoation.com
digging in already. Exploring the current open source landscape of ada pay intergrations.
Digging and planning out content. Starting to grease my eth relationships.
In the proposal, it is mentioned that a suitable writer will be found to execute the 12 investigative journalistic articles (to be written and published at ~2 per month till the end of 2022). The update is that the writer has been selected, and I (said writer) am authoring this update, and will continue to be the contact @ Lido for all further updates on this project.
Writers are onboarded, Project Catalyst landing page exists at LidoNation.com; new content and page updates are coming over the next 6 months with this project!
