Proposal Earmark


Proposal Description

At OPAP our objective is to onboard the next wave of Web3 talents and provide continuous support to the growth and adoption of Ocean Protocol worldwide.

After successfully

  1. partnering with Ocean Missions in delivering quality Podcasts
  2. integrating Coordinape for governance
  3. introducing new streamlined processes and incentives such as Activity Farming, Impression mining, Leaderboard and after
  4. launching our first version of the OPAP website, we’re now planning to scale the program even further by coordinating with local communities worldwide to attract talents into the core of the Ocean ecosystem and develop targeted referral campaigns.
  5. Working with other OceanDAO grantees such as The Phoenix Guild and DoDAO
  6. Partnering with New Order DAO to help them amplify their products and produce content

With over 250 ambassadors from 40 nationalities, we want to take the necessary steps to create a community-led program and transform OPAP into a truly efficient AmbassadorDAO (OPAP DAO).

The program has currently been placed on hold as the OPAP treasury needs to be refilled. There are deliveries that Ambassadors have done in good faith, that need to be compensated and we would ask the Ocean Community to accept this proposal and help us reward the work of Ambassadors.

In order for Ocean to have a sustainable and valuable Ambassador Program we need sustainable funding and to also ensure that we compensate people according to their expectations.

We publish our Outreach activities publicly, and metrics such as Twitter Engagement, Impressions are shared on our Notion page openly.

Value Add Criteria

The Ocean Ambassadors have and will continue to represent the evolving structure of the greater Ocean ecosystem. We strive to further advance literacy and implementation of Ocean Protocol to those interested in the decentralized data sharing economy by recruiting, supporting and retaining talent to advance this objective.

The Ambassadors succeed in building trust and bridges across the Ocean ecosystem and the wider Crypto metaverse, by upholding values of:

  • High Ethical Standards
  • We are trying to build for the long term success of the Ocean Protocol ecosystem, and will not take shortcuts to get there.

  • Full Transparency
  • Every single token that we spend if accounted for and we share publicly all disbursements and deliveries. Anyone can hold us to account and see how we are managing the program

  • Culture of Inclusion
  • We operate on an optimistic governance system, as well as permissionless deliveries, we don’t gatekeep our Ambassadors from doing what they do best, and we trust them to deliver the quality expected from the DAO
