This is adaptable and applies to DATA NFTs also.

Part 1 - Proposal Submission

NFT Audience Airdrops for event attendees

Proposal in one sentence:
This proposal is to launch audience management in the platform with NFT airdrops, VC’s (verifiable credentials) and tokens for attendees

Description of the project and what problem is it solving: (You can give more details in “proposal details” section farther down.)
This particular grant request aims to launch a web3 event casting solution to market with audience management and NFT ticketing and airdrops features. This will allow crypto communities to give airdrops on any network through their own smart contracts. While converting their communities into NFT fanclubs.

The main aim of this micro project is to aim for further adoption in the crypto space while also incentivizing content creators and streamers to publish content on our marketplace.

VideoWiki as a project brings a decentralized approach to content ownership and sharing. It uses a customized Ocean marketplace to provide educators, researchers (content providers).

Grant Deliverables for R15:

  • NFT / Token drops for CAST audiences and running one OCEAN community event
  • Launching and promoting CAST as a live product with marketing
  • Audience NFT drop feature to engage audiences and pilot with 2 community events within OCEAN community

**Which [Project Category:

  • Build / improve applications or integrations to Ocean

Are you applying for an Earmark? Pick one.

  • General

What is the final product?

VideoWiki comprises of products to create and exchange knowledge though digital mediums. Thus we have a product line-up of
1. Content - An AI assisted Video Content Creator
2. Class - A collaborative web conferencing solution
3. Cast - A scheduling and broadcasting solution for event casts
4. Creatives - A decentralized stock media marketplace with self-governed ownership of your creative assets. (In Development)

Cast: Our solution to run events or scheduled classes with audience invitations and reminders.

Here are possible “value add” criteria.

  1. Usage of Ocean —
    VideoWiki as a project brings a decentralized approach to content ownership and sharing. It uses a customized Ocean marketplace to provide educators, researchers (content providers).

The content created using our advanced AI models can be published in an IP Protected manner on the blockchain using OCEAN Protocol. The publisher maintains the IP of the content in form of data tokens which are generated through the OCEAN Protocol.

As an OCEAN community project, it serves as a conduit to add and monetize media content in forms of Videos, Video Streams and Stock Media content.

  1. Viability — what is the chance of success of the project
    Based on previous successes in delivering the projects and initial successful tests, the chances and encouragement to further develop this project is very likely to bring the estimated results. Last grant has given us a fair POC with validations to bring a product to market with a commercial angle. The adoption is still a trickier thing to measure hence we are going with an 80% success probability that the project will get adoption.

  2. Community active-ness — how active is the team in the community
    We attend townhalls and follow OCEAN’s progress on all channels. We do not have a dedicated social media team in our project to engage more vocally, but as we move from tech development to market launch things will open up more.

  3. Adding value to the overall community — how well does the outcome of the project add value to the Ocean community / ecosystem
    We are working with various projects within the community to work with them. Also with premium accounts to all ocean projects.

Welcome @Cipher & Video-Wiki team,

We welcome you again to Ocean DAO R15. It is also duly noted that you had submitted a proposal in the last round as well and we ll help you evaluate your proposal for a better community outlook/

On behalf of the PG-WG, I’d like to give your team a deserving note of evaluation through the lens of Web3 sustainability loop.

Your project looks promising and I believe it’s aligned with our evaluation criteria of generating positive value towards the Ocean Ecosystem and the W3SL.

The project criteria are:

  1. Usage of Ocean & Viability: From a personal point of view, I had the chance to take the demo of the beta app and the technical efficiency of the application is quite good with features ranging from creating sessions intuitively, Video-cast options for creator contents and live aidrops that are possible for attendees to specific sessions.

  2. Community active-ness - We have also recognized the activeness of specific members from the VideoWiki team although the social handles could use some improvement. We believe there could be good scope in having an expansive outreach with the community oriented tooling.

  3. Adding value to the community — Given the strong component of having a Web3 Video conferencing dApp, there are strong signs that the Video-wiki features can be engaged with higher level engagement of communities like the ones you have mentioned. I hope to see engagement with Ocean specific communities as well. Will be glad to offer support in the best way possible.

Based on the above reasons, we wish to give VideoWiki team with a hopeful result for R15 with a positive upvote.

Dear Prakash, thanks for your support. We are happy to contribute value back to Ocean and its community.
We are not as active on social mediums and recognize that as a weakness considering crypto space and DAOs are mostly about buzz and chats. If there are any members who would like to contribute to our outreach and community management, we would be happy to be introduced or reached for.
We would also like to setup a demo of this particular grant result to the community in a townhall or a sepcific event.

Hello All,
Sharing some news. We conducted another successful private Beta with Ethereum Swarm. A 5 hour pitch event at WAM - We are Millions, hosted on Videowiki. The event went on with 300 minutes recorded at stretch and the video streamed at 3 platforms simultaneously, WAM, Videowiki and Youtube. Our infra capabilities have scaled and we were also piloting with them an NFT drop feature for audiences. Now we are going to test the marketplace with that size of an upload and share data tokens with Swarm team to access.

Any Ocean project would like to conduct an live CAST with us is more than welcome to enjoy free setup and support from our side. We are continuously improving the tech and infra… always looking out to get and give support to peers.

Hi @Malte_Ocean , yes we would like to take a few minutes to show a NFT drop feature recently launched.

Perfect! Looking forward to your demo. Also: thanks for reacting so fast on the confirmation. Revamping comms/pr around our projects atm, so: thanks for doing this and see you in around an hour in the Town Hall (your deep share will be at the end, around 17:40).
