[IMPACT]

Charles Hoskinson is talking regularly with the community through youtube videos. His messages are inspiring and share the vision and work of Cardano. When I got to see his videos I also got hooked by the message and energy and especially by his life mission to create better systems for all. At my elderlyage, I saw many inspiring leaders and Charles is definitely one of them. This was my entry point into blockchain and Cardano.

First I started with creating the hoskintoons.com NFT project, which was also recognized by Charles in one of his videos

and I am looking into using my expertise to promote Cardano in a unique way and also through a Cross Chain Collaboration challenge. United Caricature The idea for this proposal is United Caricature, a weekly caricature (Caricature) that will show the importance of collaboration between chains for the common god of the block chain industry. This proposal will focus on a timeframe of 12 weeks and will therefore produce 12 caricatures. Subjects could include what is common between the chains and how the various chains could mitigate external threats (misleading information) or support positive legislation. Doing it in a creative way could have a huge impact between chains as well facing the publick.

How might we create connections and collaboration between Cardano and other blockchains in the next six months?

Through fun and creative Caricature - one image can bridge many gaps

Why is it important? Interoperability of blockchains and multi-chain awareness guarantees shared success of the cryptoeconomy as a whole.

Creative way to present the importance of cross chain could lead to higher awareness and openmind between blockchain communities

There are not any major challenges for the creation of the Caricatures.

One key challenge could be to set up the storyline, find key ares we want the Caricatuers to represent and the connecting line between each weekly caricature. This will be mitigated first by the vast experience of the proposers and second by having some community brainstorming sessions at SWARM post town hall.

Another challenge we are considering is how to be able to generate revenue so the work could continue for a longer period of time. We will evaluate NFT models for it.

[FEASIBILITY]

The roadmap is straightforward

  • Brainstorming session with the community re subjects (week one, and week 5)

  • Preparation of list of media channels (week 0-2)

  • One Cartoon per week for 12 weeks

  • Sharing on a weekly basis with multiple blockchain community media channels

  • Add a section of CrossChain collaboration (by Cardano) in our website (by week 3)

  • We will evaluate in the process building NFT model for it (we are already collaborating with Cardanotrees <https://shlomocohen.com/show/apocalypsea>)

  • KPIs&amp; deliverables

  • A list of media network

  • 10 - 20 media &amp; community channels to publish the Cartoons weekly

  • Number of viewers is difficult to estimate, but we foresee to pass a million impressions overall

  • 100s of sharing on social networks

Weekly Cartoon x 12 weeks x USD 500 = USD 6000

Marketing &amp; PR USD 500 per month x 3 months = USD 1500

Communication with media, meetups, emails, website = USD 1000 per month x 3 months = USD 3000

Total budget USD 10500

[AUDITABILITY]

This proposal is highly auditable for deliverables and KPIs

With weekly publishing of the caricatures it can generate:

#views on social media (eg twitter likes, RT, impressions, engagements, profile visits)

posts using the hashtag connected to the collection eg #caricatorada

A weekly Cartune will be shared in media

A final report and ppt will provided to the community

Inspiring communities through Caricatures to build bridges between communities

Media sharing of the Caricature across community media channels

Getting to mainstream media

This is a new proposal

This Proposal is definitely a great idea to create impact for a Cross Chain Community. By creating weekly caricatures which focus on the importance of Cross Chain Collaborations, the Proposer is able to combine an easy to consume media format with educational content, able to target a very broad target group and therefore definitely alignes with the Challenges Purpose and intention.

Proposed to create Cartoon NFT themed cross-chain collaboration between Cardano and other blockchain. A simple but very cool idea. The proposal also meets the criteria set by the challenge "Expansion of Cardano-based projects into other chains". If the proposal solves the problem of the content of the cartoon, how can it convey information about the effect of cross-chain cooperation between blockchains. Then the impact of the proposal is huge for the community. There's nothing like conveying educational, collaborative content through visuals images or cartoons. I suggest that the proposer can choose the topic of good technology of blockchains so as not to compare and attack each other. Or the topic of environmental impact, impact on the poor which shows how good Cardano is, how Ethereum helps, how well Solana does…

I love the art, however, would like to see a more solid road map. The fact you are still doing research on making the proposal profitable seems it is a bit early to be applying for catalyst funds. I also worry that even though the idea is to promote cross-chain compatibility, the only audience this may reach will be the Cardano ecosystem.

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

The detailed plan for implementation of the proposal will take place over 12 weeks (3 months). It makes sense to me because the hardest job is probably creating 12 cartoons in 12 weeks. The proposer is very experienced in this part of the job, which is proven by going to the proposer's website (https://hoskintoons.com/). The team of the proposal also has 2 members in charge of marketing and 1 computer science expert with knowledge of blockchains to advise on topics for the cartoon. With such a team, the implementation of the proposal is very feasible. Allocate funds to 3 main jobs: creating 12 cartoons, marketing and connecting media. 60% of the money will be used to pay for the cost of creating cartoons. Evaluating the value of artworks is very difficult, but with the cost of 500$/cartoon and the value that cartoons can bring to the community, I consider it reasonable.

You seem to have the experience to follow through with the proposal completely. The only thing that would hold you back from growing is a solid plan to keep funding coming in to sustain your idea. Once you get your funding in place I think this could be a long term project.

The Proposer and his Team showing a great experience and skills in creating caricatures and as they offer their services as a professional Team, the feasibility and successful implementation of the Proposal is therefore very likely. Timeline, Budget and Team is well displayed and introduced, the whole proposal is a very simple idea and its feasibility is very straight forward

Does the proposal provides sufficient information to assess and audit progress and completion?

Tracking project progress will measure the number of cartoons created and published on social channels and medias for which the proposal would be appropriate (Proposer needs to provide a media list in case the proposal is funded). This proposal is like a marketing campaign, so the proposer needs to provide KPIs about the specific number of people interested, which should also be included so that it can be easily measured. I think this is not difficult because I came across the twitter page with more than 1,000 followers of the proposer. The success of the project is a successful marketing campaign of good things for crosschain collaboration between Cardano and other blockchains. This is a great proposal and I see the sincerity of the proponent as well as the good that the proposal creates if successful.

I think the scope of your progress will be dwarfed by other projects without a solid team to help promote your work. Consider adding a discord and/or telegram channel and maybe even another social media option or two to help reach a wider audience.

As the Caricatures will be published on a weekly base, the community is able to track the Proposals progress and is able to directly enjoy the projects deliverables

There are more caricatures that were posted on the twitter of Sustainable ADA and we plan to contact the NFT guild to improve our marketing. We are doing weekly meetings to discuss about the news on blockchain and to help Shlomo Cohen find ideas subjects for his caricatures. We are also sharing our caricatures on our personal social medias. You can see our caricatures on shlomocohen.com and on the twitter of sustainable ADA
