Name of Project:
Proposal in one sentence:
Building an on-ramp for data scientists and developers to Ocean Protocol via on-chain data assets (e.g. related to NFTs, Crypto, DAO’s & DeFi).
Description of the project and what problem is it solving:
We’re helping to onboard data scientists and developers to Ocean Protocol. We connect via outreach activities and guide them through the on-boarding process, creating data assets from on-chain data and publishing them to Ocean Market. Ocean Missions is built on the belief that on-chain data provides the lowest barrier to entry for wider market adoption of Ocean Protocol.
Last month we focussed on Acquisition, this month it’s Activation. We use OKRs to identify and prioritise grant deliverables:
Objective 1 - Community Onboarding
- Host AMA session with OM community members
- Run 3+ OM community calls
- Launch a data mission within the OM community with 3+ participants
- Publish & share video showing how to upload on-chain data assets to Ocean Market
- Share ‘Working with DeFi Data’ tutorial with users for initial feedback
Objective 2 - Improve Data Asset Quality
- Oversee the development of the Unlock Ocean Data data mission.
- Identify a list of projects with a high likelihood of publishing on-chain data assets.
Objective 3 - Extend Runway
- Publish a preliminary go to market approach for a blockchain data marketplace
Which category best describes your project?
Outreach / community / spread awareness
What is the final product?
The final product is a decentralised community for Ocean Protocol enthusiasts to build & publish on-chain data assets. These could be community owned data assets, client sponsored data missions or products built with on-chain data assets (e.g. the blockchain data marketplace).
To learn more about this, you can read our vision to create a blockchain analytics organisation that’s co-owned by its members & built on Ocean Protocol.
Which one or more of the criteria will your project focus on? Why do you believe your team will do well on those criteria?
Usage of Ocean:
We want to build an on-ramp to Ocean Protocol via on-chain data, helping users experiment and use Ocean Protocol within a market which already ‘gets it’ (Web3 data). Ocean Missions members will create &/or publish on-chain data assets on Ocean Protocol which will increase the usage of Ocean through all key metrics to various degrees including DCV, # assets published,TVL, network revenue & active users. We also believe that by attracting data scientists and developers to Ocean Protocol, some will naturally apply for funding through the Ocean DAO contributing towards # funded projects.
Adding value to the overall community:
Ocean Missions helps to increase awareness of Ocean Protocol by continuing to publish and promote outreach content (e.g. What is Ocean Protocol’s Data Marketplace? with 195 unique page views). This content attracts people to both Ocean Missions and Ocean Protocol. By helping new users get familiar with Ocean Protocol via on-chain data it’s likely some will move to other areas (e.g. healthcare) well equipped with a working knowledge of Ocean Protocol.
We want to continue the momentum we have built over the last 6 months working within the Oean DAO and start to build a founding team capable of executing the vision.

Part 3 - Proposal Details
We have since identified the data assets we believe are most likely to sell on Ocean Market and acquired 91 members to our Discord where we plan to start building on-chain data assets.
To help on-board and upskill members we are improving our LEARN module to include a series of tutorials focussed on creating and publishing on-chain data assets to Ocean Market. The first tutorial is titled ‘working with DeFi data’ and we have so far registered 20 beta users for this. It’s hoped these tutorials will help to on-board new users to Ocean Missions and Ocean Protocol.
We have completed 1 data project so far, 2 are being worked on currently and 2 others are waiting for members to pick them up. We have gained >500 twitter followers, >1,000 unique website visitors with 10% of users returning more than once.
3.3 If in Category “Outreach / community”:
- 4 blog posts will be published at https://www.oceanmissions.com/blog/
- 2 videos will be published on the Ocean Missions youtube channel (to be created)
- 3+ community calls will be held at https://discord.gg/4NRcBQGams
3.8 If the project includes community engagement:
All content we produce will be published on our blog and shared via twitter, linkedin, reddit and telegram.
3.9 Project Deliverables - Roadmap
Any prior work completed thus far? Details?
You can review our progress report here.
What is the project roadmap?
All deliverables for this round will be published by 1 January. Our development approach is iterative allowing us to focus on specific tasks/areas as required while continuing to work towards our overarching vision and achieveing our OKRs.
What is the team’s future plans and intentions?
We hope to continue building very closely to the Ocean DAO and become financially sustainable through the release of a Data Marketplace focussed on blockchain data.
