Catalyst Streaming Guild - Events

This charter will create a community of Catalyst Streamers. Streaming live events and curated re-runs of recent events will drive attention &amp; participation -&gt; quality engagement in Catalyst. As a small active community, we overestimate our reach. The Community creates lots of ideas but does not retain them due to lack of incentives, aka poor Human Resources -&gt; churn. Increasing the Reach of dReps, Proposers and Live Community Events directly Hunts for Outside Attention, drawing Human Resources to our community. This funding is for bounties to attempt mitigation with incentivized contribution, now.

[IMPACT] Please describe how your proposed solution will address the Challenge that you have submitted it in.

This Proposal [AIM]s to receive funds to execute open community events to link important ecosystem biomes (dReps, Voters, PAs) together. The Proposal addresses the provided challenge brief and requirements.

Key Metrics to measure

・+(Number of dReps) How many dReps were onboarded?

・++(Number of delegates) How much did it contribute to increasing the number of delegates to dReps?

・+++(Accuracy of delegate decisions) How well did we create content and tools to make it easier to consider dReps? -&gt; (Increase in Number of dReps)

[IMPACT] What are the main risks that could prevent you from delivering the project successfully and please explain how you will mitigate each risk?

Risk: Engagement from Content Creation Community willing to take an interest in Catalyst Events.

  • Mitigation: Composite services created by contributors based on their time bandwidth &amp; skills
  • Example of Composite Service: <https://bit.ly/ScrumMaster4Sale>

Risk: Tracking Incentive Expenses with Public Facing Transparency

  • Mitigation: Dework Bounties, Github &amp; Treasury Management

This proposal is about creating a Catalyst Streamers community to connect the key components in the catalyst. Is this a suggestion or does it make it easier to review dReps? -> (Increase the number of times dRep). Should propose a suitable challenge.

The present proposal technique we use has led to siloed ways of developing proposals, which has made many submissions not depict their actual potential. As a result, many proposals have missed financing because they were unable to provide convincing proof in writing. The author suggests removing this obstacle by giving proposers a portal where they may post regular updates and video footage attempting to explain to the community and voters what they intend to achieve. We can observe that teams with a track record of success are given priority, whereas newcomers are losing interest as a result of numerous failed investment rounds. Perhaps a solution like this guild will provide them an equal opportunity to present their thoughts. The adoption of Cardano will undoubtedly increase if newcomers have help from the start. The community may use this service to check on the status of initiatives that have previously received funding. The community might standardize the application and mandate that projects submit frequent updates. Nevertheless, the concept in its current form alone might have a significant impact on the ecosystem, regardless of future capabilities.

This proposal aims to link important entities in the ecosystem (dReps, Voters, PAs) together by creating a community of "Catalyst Streamers". This is a pretty interesting solution, it can impact many people in different geographical locations can interact with each other. however, the proponent should provide information on how this solution will create diversity and participation, or how voters can easily participate and integrate. The proponent is clearly quite knowledgeable about the project, he has provided the possible risks and contingencies, and these contingencies are adequate. in general, the impact of the proposal is yes. However, to get the maximum score, the proponent should provide more complete information, and can refer to the improvements from me.

This project aims to allow a wide expression of dReps to a large audience so that they can be heard by voters. The proposed solution is to create and fund a community of Catalyst streamers. Streamers will be in charge of creating Catalys community events. Part of the funding will be dedicated to financial incentives for contributors. This proposal targets two out of the 4 goals of the challenge : High delegation rate won't be achieved if dReps are not heard, and appropriate selection of dReps for delegation won't be achievec if dReps are not understood. This proposal has a clear goal, and is very needed to avoid dysfunction of Catalyst.

The challenge brief calls for achieving diverse dRep participation and easy voter delegation. To achieve these objectives, the proposers envision a streaming service that allows dReps to connect to voters. The proposal articulates many important objectives such as creating “quality engagement in Catalyst,” “increasing the reach of dReps,” and “executing open community events to link important ecosystem biomes.” The proposal would benefit from a few more concrete details to describe more about how the streaming service will work, and how the actions and activities of the streaming service will translate into achieving the described objectives. Similarly, the proposal intends to measure the accuracy of delegate decisions and would be improved by explaining the metrics and process to achieve this goal. The proposals’ objectives would certainly add value to the ecosystem as the community would benefit from a realization of these goals.

Given experience and plan presented is likely that this proposal will be implemented successfully?

The feasibility of this proposal is yes but it could be more complete. The person making this proposal has 1 person and he has 4 other proposals in this fund but does not provide a work breakdown for each project. His solution is to use PM services for freelancers to support. About the roadmap it is quite specific with start date, end date and implementation progress. In terms of budget it was listed out into subsections, however some were "Facilitating Weekly and Organizing Social Innovation Process; Tracking & Transacting Metadata; Marketing & Outreach Campaigns" ;Encourage -> social innovation process -> Create Disposable Content Services" it's not really clear what they will do, It needs to be more clearly explained how resources are needed, definition what is the result of it.

The proposal is supported by a succinct action plan. The project proposer gives the community a general notion of what to expect as the project is implemented. However, the strategy is self-explanatory because each phase has specific milestones and deliverables. However, the sought funding is quite substantial, and the proposal's credibility is not being aided by the breakdown's guesstimation; perhaps a much more thorough breakdown would have been helpful. The principal developer, Peter Wolcott, is the only person mentioned by the author; the rest of the team's members are not mentioned at all. As a result, I find it a little challenging to draw any conclusions about the proposal's viability based on the few data that are available. However, it can be seen that the SWARM team has seen some degree of success in earlier rounds and is still engaged in the development of a few new ones this time around, making them reliable and trustworthy. Therefore, granting the benefit of the doubt, I would like to tentatively concur with that at this time.

The proposal provided a detailed development plan with a start date of August 2022 and is expected to end in October 2022. The plan included implementation progress. The project budget required $20000 for 16 weeks. there is a list of sub-items but in addition to the activity management and tools I can assess the budget is reasonable, other items like " Facilitating weekly and Organizing the Social Innovation process; Tracking and metadata trading; Marketing & Outreach Campaigns; Incentives -> social innovation process -> Create Disposable Content Services" I don't know the job content for the content. What is the above content, based on where to get the amount for each of the above items? The proponent should provide information about the work content such as organizing weekly live streams which includes preparing talk materials on the topic of voting for fund 9, for example, or conducting 4 advertising campaigns. advertising via Facebook, google ads, …. when there are specific work contents, the reader will imagine the workload from which there is a basis to evaluate the requested budget is grounded, not valid. is a random number. Finally, information about the person who made the proposal, he has one person, according to the information I read, in addition to this project, he has 4 other proposals. I consider it quite difficult to implement, however, the proponent provided more information about Freelance PM Offerings Proposal to support this as well. In summary, the feasibility of the proposal is yes, but the author should consider my suggestions for improvement.

Peter Wolcott is an experienced Catalys Swarm member, and has experience in community organization (several projects can be looked from the provided lintr.ee). His plan for this Catalyst Streaming Guide is straightforward to the point and individual tasks are detailed. Half of the $20,000 budget is reserved for contribution incentives, which is consistent with the plan and risk analysis. Tracking incentive expenses is an important aspect of this proposal. Voters should note that this risk is well mitigated by the Catalyst Swarm bounty dashboard on Dework. It can be visualized on https://bit.ly/CatalystSwarmBounty, with for example a task to about timestamping After Town Hall videos.

The proposal provides a roadmap from August to November detailing the steps they will take to create the streaming platform. The proposer is a well-known, experienced, and respected member of the community. The references to the Swarm activities also serve as a useful template or model of how this proposal intents to operate. The budget is broken into a number of different line items, and represents 13% of the challenge budget. The only reason to rate this section as 4-stars rather than 5-stars was due to the lack of information regarding the mentioned bounty incentivization system. While links to other bounty programs were provided, it would be useful to understand exactly what they mean in the context of the Streaming Guild, and how they will be tailored to ensure the success of the proposal and the fulfillment of the response to the challenge brief.

The proposed measurements are very closely in line with the specifications of the challenge. The most useful metric for measuring success is undoubtedly the level of notoriety the tool generates for itself. The level of contributor engagement measured by meetings and group calls is another measurable bonus. The auditors can use the trustworthy GitHub repository, documentation, and contribution tracker to monitor the development of the proposal. Weekend 24-Hour Stream of Choice Catalyst The proposal's content will ultimately reveal whether it was successful and whether users liked it. I believe the auditing procedure should be simpler and the community would be able to produce sufficient evidence regarding the proposal's success because the team has generated money for their endeavors in the past. Although SWARM is a well-established community, I believe the proposer could have differentiated their proposal from others by offering the community a few more distinctive success measures. Nevertheless, I believe the current metrics are more than sufficient to monitor the proposal.

Regarding the auditability of the project as mentioned in the impact, he provided a process with specific timelines to check the progress. Indicators to measure can be tested with qualitative and quantitative parameters. Targeted goals are presented in full, and easy to understand. my only addition is that the proponent should provide an additional way of reporting project results to the community, to IOG be it weekly or every time a new result is successfully implemented so that the community can Check the ongoing progress of the project. Overall auditability is adequate, but it would be perfect if my improvements were applied.

The requested funding will cover 16 weeks of operation of the Streaming Guild. Success is defined by an effective collaboration in producing the content, transparency for incentive proces, and 24 hours of streamed content. Several measure of success are provided, the deliverable is a streamed content and as content production can be followed on DeWork : the community will have all the information needed to monitor the progress of this project.

The proposal envisions performing most of their work in public through the use of a public facing dework and Github Repo. In this respect they have provided a sufficient answer to the requirement from the PA guide for an accessible public channel used to deliver regular updates. The contribution tracker and KPIs seem to be well thought out. The only thing missing from the metric, and causing the loss of one star, is that the metrics don’t relate to the challenge brief. It would strengthen the proposal if there were tracking or auditing metrics in place that would help to assess whether the Streaming service results in a greater diversity of dreps and fewer silos across the Catalyst and Cardano ecosystem.
