Should the following $24,000 grant in the Documentation category be approved?
I want to explore the importance of preserving information related to Decentraland’s history and development. By documenting its evolution, milestones, and key events, we gain insights into the growth and transformation of this unique decentralized ecosystem. The historical record of Decentraland not only serves as a valuable resource for researchers, enthusiasts, and stakeholders but also plays a crucial role in fostering transparency, accountability, and trust within the growing community and interest.
It is my aim to secure as much historical content as possible on one of the biggest online resources for online communities. Fandom, similar to Wikipedia, is an established platform on that regard and is widely used.
24,000 USD in DAI
By documenting the platform’s evolution, milestones, and key events, it addresses several crucial challenges:
Preservation of Decentraland’s Legacy:
This initiative safeguards the historical record of Decentraland, ensuring that its history is not lost to the passage of time.
Transparency and Trust:
The project enhances transparency and accountability within Decentraland. By providing a reliable source of historical information, it minimizes the risk of misinformation, ensuring that users can trust the platform and its development processes.
The documentation becomes a valuable educational resource. Researchers, enthusiasts, stakeholders, and newcomers can access a well-preserved history, gaining insights into Decentraland’s unique journey.
Support for Decentralized Governance:
In a digital realm where decentralized governance and ownership are paramount, information preservation serves as a fundamental pillar. It empowers the community to make informed decisions based on historical context, contributing to the platform’s continued success.
Promotion of Innovation:
By acknowledging the intrinsic value of historical documentation, this project promotes innovation within Decentraland. It encourages a deeper understanding of the platform’s past, which can inspire future developments and creative endeavors.
This project ensures that Decentraland’s history remains intact and accessible to all, enriching the platform’s culture and providing a solid foundation for its future. It strengthens Decentraland’s position as a pioneer in the decentralized virtual world space and reinforces the platform’s appeal to a diverse audience.
It has the potential to emerge as the definitive source for all things Decentraland. In my ideal scenario, there would exist a dedicated Decentraland Wiki, distinct from the official documentation, that comprehensively covers everything related to Decentraland not included in the official sources. This independent Wiki would serve as one of the primary information repositories, accessible to all.
Reflecting on my journey from back in May, when I embarked on this endeavor and started a few initial pages, it became evident that this project demands a significant investment of time and effort. In the event that this proposal doesn’t come to fruition, I see it as an opportunity to raise awareness. I’m determined to write articles regardless of the outcome, although I may not be able to dedicate as much time as I initially envisioned.
Instead of stating dates for a Roadmap, I ld like to use this space for bullet points I want to address and cover. This list is far from complete and shall only give an overview. (In Alphabetical order)
