Ocean Protocol Turkey Community v3

Name of Project:

Ocean Protocol Turkey Community v3

Proposal in one sentence:

Establishing a local sub-entity by hosting Ocean Protocol

Description of the Project and what problem is it solving?

At Crypto Turkey, we are excited by the prospects of Ocean Protocol and have been working hard to engage and explain its use cases and importance to the Turkish crypto community for a long time. As part of the 11th Round of OceanDAO, our team received a grant to promote and create awareness around the project.

A key objective for Ocean Protocol is to become an essential component of the growing data economy globally. For the project to be successful, the goals need to be made clear to people from all geographies (including Turkey), including investors, users, and developers.

Turkey is a large country with a population of 83 million and is currently very active in the crypto market. In addition to the general user percentage, it ranks high as a country in both coinmarketcap traffic and the traffic of major crypto exchanges.[1]

*More details and sources are in the appendix

To take the project as far as possible, we plan to combine the potential of Ocean Protocol with the potential of the Turkish community. We plan to do this by presenting the details of the ecosystem to a general audience through all kinds of social media platforms, with both original and creative content.

We will demonstrate our progress to the Ocean Protocol community every two months, including our targets and next steps.

Any Prior Work Completed Thus so far?

Over the past month, we have ramped up our activity on our Twitter and Medium accounts to inform our audience about Ocean Protocol using creative content. In addition, we published market usage videos on Youtube and Theta TV channels to help explain the Ocean Market to people of all levels. We also translated and delivered AMA events to our community. In addition to the Ocean Protocol Turkey accounts, we used this as an opportunity to announce projects from the Crypto Turkey community. We tried to emphasise the mission of Ocean Protocol at various events hosted by the Turkish Crypto community, attended by hundreds of people and listeners.

You can find our growth report and progress made below.

Our primary focus has been to tell people about the unique structure that Ocean Market has added to the data economy in the past month. In addition, as you have seen, we have presented the translations of articles and original content to our community to explain the foundations of the ecosystem. This month, we also aim to tell people about OceanDAO in all its aspects and to raise awareness to bring new projects from the Turkish community to Ocean Protocol. With this purpose in mind:

Have you previously received an OceanDAO grant?

Yes, we received grants on OceanDAO’s rounds 11 and 12. The total grant we received for two months is $3500. Our first months were spent trying to take over an ongoing community and make it functional, but as it can be seen at this point, we are working at full capacity with a growing team. For this reason, considering the work to be done, we found it appropriate to request $8000 for the 2-month period.

We aim to achieve a 25% growth rate across our Twitter, Youtube and Medium channels for each month in the next two months. For Telegram, our monthly growth target is 15%. We aim to be a constantly growing project that adds value to the ecosystem. In addition to all social media activities, contacting other OceanDAO teams is among our goals for the coming year. We want projects working for the Ocean ecosystem to combine to create the greatest value. In particular, we want to translate Ocean Academy, which is a great project, into Turkish and bring it to the community. Although our efforts to contact Ocean Academy have not yet come to fruition, we insist on doing this work, considering the value of the job done. We have also requested help from key influencers in the Turkish Crypto community to prepare content to be featured across our social media accounts throughout the year. Finally, as a key objective, we want to introduce OceanDAO and ensure that users across Turkey enter the Ocean ecosystem and become an integral part of OceanDAO with their original ideas as developers and investors.

Our aim is for users to add value to the system by being active followers of the system and not sorely through monetary means. We do not doubt that we will achieve this goal with a stable growing structure. More concrete details on all the issues above will be provided in the upcoming proposals.
