Dear Polkadot community,
We are TeachMeDeFi, a German language hub for web3 education, founded in 2022. Our mission is to deliver high-quality educational resources and foster a thriving community of web3 users, with a focus on simplifying and promoting decentralized technologies through our content and partnerships. We have already made significant strides in this mission and our portfolio thus far includes podcasts, interviews, educational videos, a community hub and a structured website.
We understand that bringing more awareness to Polkadot and doing more professional, targeted marketing has been a topic of discussion in the community and many have requested it as it has been somewhat lacking, even though the technological progress of Polkadot has been impressive. Furthermore, it has been a topic of discussion that diving into the Polkadot ecosystem can be complicated for new users.
This is why we are submitting a funding proposal to support the creation and promotion of content in order to increase awareness of the Polkadot ecosystem, reach a wider audience and significantly simplify the onboarding journey for new users.
We have already received support from key players in the Polkadot community and are excited to share our proposal.
You can read the full proposal document here (live google doc) or here (ipfs pdf doc).
In this document, we describe in detail (1) the challenge Polkadot is facing, (2) the unique opportunity that the German language market represents and (3) the solution we propose which consists of several deliverables and a targeted marketing strategy.
You can find the original discussion post with feedback from the community here.
Thank you for your consideration,
The TeachMeDeFi Team
