Messari is looking to renew its existing engagement with Polkadot continuing to provide recurring research while expanding the scope and including more governance-specific work.
From this time last year, we have 3x our headcount with a team of over 150 after raising a Seris B led by Brevan Howard Digital. We’ve used that to significantly scale our research, data science, and engineering resources to build out our quarterly reporting and research capabilities. This has enabled us to bring all of our research in-house so we can have dedicated sector-specific analysts assigned to each protocol to cover them each quarter and continue to build up expertise.
We have also been working extensively on growing the distribution of these reports to further their reach and have signed deals with Bloomberg, S&P Global, and Refinitiv three of the largest traditional research platforms which are now distributing our quarterly reports.
We are proposing a continuation of the ecosystem-wide report along with quarterly reports while adding a governance deep dive. The total will be $190k payable in DOT with the same 10% premium to account for market volatility.
