Summary of Results

What we did well:

  • Proving we have a diversified output capacity, by generating a wide range of Digital and Physical branding touch points.
  • IRL Event was acclaimed by attendants, apparently one of the highlights of EthBCN when compared to other ecosystem’s meet-ups. For this sprint we were able to run within budget, and saved the DAO some funds by running our own event and expenses management. This route tends to be more frugal for us as a DAO, to host our own event and do a guerrilla-marketing strategy rather than to sponsor other’s events which might be more expensive or less aligned with our objectives.
  • Branding assets that were delegated to new contractors for the Origin assets produced a list of great assets/iteration for a lower cost than expected through previous options that we have sourced. Fiverr, for example helped us find good illustrators who have a fast turnout and relatively cheap price.
  • We were able to demonstrate that the DAO Sync calls can be reused to create meaningful Video Demos which share knowledge on Youtube. Further more, this video content can be broken down into smaller pieces that can be shared across other channels (like twitter, newsletters, and discord)
  • The ticket giveaway was successful in the sense that winners were very grateful after participating (this tends to have a long lasting effect in the mind of the beneficiary). AFAIK, all winners were present at the event, and they were able to dive deeper into Polywrap by getting to talk to contributors and ecosystem participants.

What we can improve:

  • Events should be advertised earlier in advance to get more awareness.
  • We should have live coverage of the event if possible, for those who are tuning in online.
  • Improving the Written Content pipeline, bootstrapping our copy from the documentation written by Core Contributors, as well as the Video content we are going to generate.
  • Faster written content creation. Ex: User cases. Nodes, wrap libraries, examples of user cases for each property or tool.

What we can do next

  • Focusing on generating and publishing content that SHARES KNOWLEDGE
  • Strenghten communications with Partners, to distribute the educational content as it’s produced
  • Plan ahead for upcoming events (like EthBerlin / Dappcon, EthIndia)
  • Ramp up Knowledge Sharing by preparing more youtube content
    • Schedule Conversations and record them, or slot time during recorded DAO Syncs to cover some of the following topics:
      • Wrap standard
      • Composability user cases
      • Web Assembly user cases
      • Workflows User cases
      • Deployment
      • Building a Wrapper
      • Near Wrapper
      • ENS Wrapper
      • Uniswap Wrapper
      • Defi Wrapper
      • How yo build on top of a existing Wrapper
    • From the created videos, write up learnings
  • Revamp website to include:
    • Getting Started section that serves as a starting point for new developers, this section should also have a defined KPI to drive increase in adoption
    • Apply new branding and clear call out to the Origin release
