Part 3 - Proposal Details (*Recommended)
Details of the proposal:
The goal of the Ocean Ambassador program is to raise awareness of Ocean Protocol in as many ways as possible - whether it is via social media channels, by launching real world events, networking in online and offline communities or involvement in other relevant communities. Another pillar of the project is to onboard new, highly motivated and brilliant people into the ecosystem - a lot of the projects in the OceanDAO have started with or are supported by Ocean Ambassadors and we are proud to have a positive influence in the community. This is an ongoing, long term commitment that we are financing via this proposal.
