CTimelines Infographics - Documenting & Promoting Cardano's History

Please describe your proposed solution.

As Cardano has been in operation for over 5 years and has experienced significant growth, it becomes increasingly difficult for individuals to grasp the entirety of its history and the key milestones that have shaped its development. The blockchain ecosystem is vast and constantly evolving, with new advancements, updates, and achievements being made regularly.

Without a consolidated and easily accessible resource, it can be challenging for individuals to gain a holistic and comprehensive understanding of Cardano's journey. They may struggle to keep up with the numerous events, technological breakthroughs, partnerships, and community initiatives that have occurred over the years.

<u>Milestones Repository</u>

We are committed to developing a comprehensive Milestones Repository that will serve as a valuable resource for documenting the historical development of our vast ecosystem. Through meticulous research and curation, we will compile the most significant milestones in Cardano's journey.

In addition, we will create Cardano Timeline Infographics, showcasing key events and milestones.

<u>Cardano Timeline 2023</u>

Our infographics will include the Cardano Timeline 2023, highlighting the major achievements and advancements in Cardano's history up until August 2023.

<u>Research Timeline 2023</u>

And the Research Timeline 2023, focusing on the academic papers and specifications that have contributed to Cardano's blockchain development.

Work in progress..

<u>Global Presence at the Cardano Summit 2023</u>

To ensure widespread visibility and engagement, we will employ a multi-channel approach.

Digital media platforms: will play a crucial role in disseminating the infographics to a global audience.

In-person promotion: our commitment to personal connections and meaningful interactions drives us to place special emphasis on in-person promotion. At Cardano Summit 2023 events taking place in various cities around the world, we will showcase our infographics, engage with attendees, and foster a deeper understanding of Cardano's evolution.

To achieve this, we are reaching out to the various organizers of the Cardano Summit 2023 located around the world to establish partnerships. Our idea is to provide them with the necessary resources, knowledge, and specifications to print high-quality infographics. They would handle the logistics of local printing and distribution of the posters to the attendees of their respective events, which will take place in November. This approach helps reduce costs and ensures that the posters reach the attendees efficiently.

We are already in contact with some hosts from different countries, and all of them have shown great interest in the proposal. Firstly, they believe that the infographics will bring significant value to the attendees by promoting discussion and engagement. Secondly, it is known that there has been a reduction in the budget for this year's Cardano Summits (one third compared to last year), so they appreciate the opportunity to have souvenirs funded for their attendees.
