Move Ocean Townhalls from Zoom/Meet to VideoWiki

Ocean townhalls have been operating primarily on zoom for 2021 and recently moved to google meet.

For 2022, we would propose to move the Townhalls on VideoWiki platform which has OCEAN marketplace intergration. With all the required features, it will provide below benefits:

Primary benefits:

  • OCEAN branded rooms and breakouts with LOGO and Background Graphic
  • OCEAN color theme for joinees
  • Records with pause and resume features

Secondary benefits:

  • Ability to post produce and publish OCEAN records on OCEAN marketplace itself.
  • Supporting one of its own funded project
  • No costs complimentary premium account
  • Unlimited parallel classes
  • Custom support for any request
  • Personalized set up of wider events with youtube or videowiki streaming and access

Future benefits:

  • Rollout of NFT drops and avatars to audiences
  • Convert the event audiences into NFT fan clubs using upcoming V4 features

How does this project drive value to the “fundamental metric” (listed above) and the overall Ocean ecosystem? This is best expressed as Expected ROI.
As explained in the data flow diagram above, more streams being added to ramp up the data to marketplace will increase in more data assets on the marketplace. Since our audience and outreach is towards educators and content creators they also bring data buyers to the ecosystem.
Each subsequent stream viz:

  1. Content Creation (Editor)
  2. Class records (Class Teleconf)
  3. Live Casts / Cast Records, with events like private/ticketed (TEDx) and Public (Open streaming as on YouTube)
  4. Creative Stock Media
    … brings more users to the ecosystem in a web3 application that is well developed and user friendly.

Bang: Free use of a premium tele conferencing software saves annual costs on any competitor prices at around $2500 at least.

Buck: $1 Ocean

% Success = 90%
Based on previous successes in conducting meeting rooms and events.

ROI = Say a townhall gives a benefit of $100 to ocean with teleconference software and custom branding.

Solving for ROI = $1/$100* (4 townhalls per month)*(12 months)*90% =
$4320 annual saving at min.

Adding internal calls and events will increase this value multifold.

Cast by VideoWiki Competitors:

We are mainly competing with big Web2 enterprises like Zoom, WebEx, and Hopin, that sell their services in the B2B space. Their offerings vary according primarily to the number of users registering for events, something that VideoWiki tries to avoid, so you are not punished for having better than expected engagement in your events.

Hi Cipher,

As discussed on Discord, we have a rule that there is only one proposal per project since last summer.

  • Some people are in >1 teams in a given funding round , it can appear like double-dipping, and it’s harder to quantify ROI

What this means, is that you should be requesting lower or higher funding to represent the grant size you are requesting for the work you are requesting.

Your other proposal (with larger amount requested) has been registered for Round 13.

All the best,

Dear Idiom-Bytes,

I had raised this question in Discord also. There is a confusion, that this one project one proposal rule has been retired.

Have a look:

This is the reason the second proposal is raised with just $1 of funding request. It aims to just get a community vote on the topic (and facilitates the ROI calculation).

Let me know your thoughts.

Hello @Cipher,

Please notice that we are updating the funding process for R13 and there are important things for you to know. We will be deploying an update to the Ocean Website, where you will be able to claim your grant on your own time.
Funding the smart contract may take ~2 days after Voting Ends. There will still be a funding deadline of 2 weeks to claim your grant.
You will need a web3 wallet + Airtable to complete the process. Grant requests via will be deprecated.

You can find all instructions here:
You will have until January 10th to update your proposal with all required fields.

Please let us know if you experience any issues or bugs. You can also submit tickets to Github and ping us inside of ocean-dao-engineering for any help. Thank you!

Hi Cipher,

Thank you for submitting your proposals to R13!

I believe we have some bugs in our documentation and I have addressed that now. What was retired is the ability for 1 Team to only have 1 Proposal. This meant that if you were part of 1 team, that’s the only team and effort you could be involved in. As you can imagine, this is not constructive inside of a DAO.

As mentioned previously, we kept this proposal out due to us having a “1 Project 1 Proposal” guideline where teams are expected to increase their funding amount requested. I understand this proposal is only requested 1 Ocean, but registering this would lead to various front-ends downstream having issues as well.

Criteria #4

I would like to propose that you have this discussions with the WGs first, so we can increase alignment on this initiative. Proposals without ratifying participants is likely not going to lead to implementation, even if voted for.

We have currently set out to build a stack of tools that we plan to implement across every WG.

I want to continue identifying ways to increase contributions to VideoWiki, however, there are many reasons why we are currently doing meetings on Discord. Please join our conversation so we can increase alignment, understanding, and perhaps identify ways to solve for each other’s goals.

All the best!
