Should the following $13,680 grant in the Platform category be approved?
We are looking for a grant to ensure the operation of Decentraland Studios, the platform that connects experienced creators with brands in Decentraland.
After successfully creating and establishing the platform, we have decided to transition Decentraland Studios into a maintenance mode, ensuring its continued operation with minimal resources, in response to the current market conditions.
Decentraland Studios has successfully facilitated deals for numerous studios in recent months and has become the go-to platform for the Decentraland Foundation to create job opportunities.
These achievements showcase the positive impact our platform has creating job opportunities for Decentraland verified creators.
13,680 USD in DAI
Decentraland Studios has come a long way from its inception. Our journey began with the mission to create a public registry of individuals and organizations offering their services to build content on Decentraland’s platform. The aim was to provide transparency to brands looking for talented builders for event productions, wearables, 3D modeling, and SDK programming. This initiative was born out of the desire to democratize access to qualified suppliers and generate new business opportunities for creators within the Decentraland community. See our first grant proposal here.
Our second grant focused on creating business opportunities for our verified studios. We launched the Jobs feature streamlining job opportunities for Decentraland creators and we ran performance marketing campaigns to generate leads.
The third grant we focused on enhancing the user experience by improving communication between studios and brands. To achieve this, we are introducing a dashboard and a messaging system, facilitating seamless interaction.
Now, with this fourth grant, we enter a new phase. Our focus is on the platform’s maintenance mode with minimal resources, ensuring its operation for future market opportunities.
The historical context and achievements have brought us to this point, where we must sustain the valuable resource we have created for the Decentraland ecosystem.
Over the past months:
- A total of 48 job posts.
- 9 of these job posts have generated a total revenue of $43,320 for 10 different studios (shared voluntarily by some posters).
- 10 job posts have been moderated.
For this grant, we kindly request the community support to ensure the sustainability and growth of Decentraland Studios. Our mission remains the same: connecting creators with brands and promoting transparency within the Decentraland ecosystem.
We encourage you to explore the following resources and stay connected with Decentraland Studios:
- Back office platform: Directus
- Decentraland Studios Website
- Join the Registry
November 2023 to April 2024
In these 6 months, my role as the Day-to-Day Operations Manager will be focused on maintaining the platform’s smooth operation. Our main goal is to preserve the current user base and ensure the reliability of our platform for both, creators and brands.
These are the key areas that require attention to ensure a smooth operation:
- Addressing user inquiries.
- Onboarding new studios.
- Verifying challenges from studios.
- Moderating job opportunities.
- Notifying and encouraging studios to submit proposals.
- Following-up posted projects.
- Engaging potential customers.
- Maintaining our presence on social media.
- Supporting Verified studios.
Additionally, I will establish and maintain a direct line of communication with our development team to address any technical issues or challenges that may arise.
