by 0xb7a03df7a54279d4189eda9e92f32443afa124ed (Katka#24ed)

Should the following Tier 2: up to $3,000 USD in MANA, one-time payment grant in the Content Creator category be approved?

Abstract

We are working on various Chinese social media, including WeChat, bilibili, and Red to let more people know and explore Decentraland. Within one month, we have built up a community of nearly 2,000 people who hold great passion for Web3 on WeChat and attracted more than 1,500 followers on other Chinese platforms. When Decentraland launches its new events, or some well-known brands have stepped into Decentraland, we make videos to show the upcoming or ongoing events in Decentraland to attract potential players.

In addition, we will teach community members to get into Decentraland and know this amazing world. We have already attracted several brands and IPs which intend to establish their presence in DCL.

Description

When Decentraland launches its new events, or some well-known brands have stepped into Decentraland, we make videos to show the upcoming or ongoing events or the scenes in Decentraland. This allows more people to see the newest brands in Decentraland and the new Metaverse spaces that have been created and to join and immerse themselves in the ongoing events in Decentraland. We have already made four editions of our Metaverse Fashion Week Tour series, tours to TX Huaihai, The University of Hong Kong Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, and the Cannes Film Festival, which have been shown in three editions. Altogether, a cumulative total of 2,000 followers and a total viewership of over 10k.

The problem we found is that sometimes it can be hard for us to visit all the scenes and make videos, for instance, during the MVFW. Our next step is to show more spaces and events in Decentraland to bring more awareness to the whole community.

Besides, on our WeChat and Discord communities, we have only 3 moderators of 2000 members, and all of us are working hard every day to bring news about Decentraland and help the new players to start, things like how to create your avatar, how to buy MANA and wearables, how to create wearable and build your scene on the Builder… Also, our community is growing fast and we need people to be focused on these new members.

Specification

If the grant is approved, I’ll expand the team to cover more events in Decentraland. I’ll pay the moderators to be motivated and also have more time in there helping the new members and bringing the news every day.

This grant is enough to pay the cost for 3 months.

Personnel

BEAM studio is a globally-based studio. BEAM Studio originated from a global community of high-quality creators, where we are committed to exploring brand-new ways digital natives interact with information, space, and each other, as our name suggests, Build Exciting Adventures in Metaverse. Meanwhile, we aim to bring together global creators to create various experiences to promote the process of metaverse construction and build virtual worlds beyond imagination.

Now it has expanded into a community of metaverse builders including creators, developers, business operators, and Web3 investment and research personnel. We are dedicated to cultivating web3 newbies, and helping newbies understand blockchain technology, Web3 environment and opportunities for creators. We will lead them to complete the migration and adaptation to Web3.

Roadmap and milestones

We will post new subtitled content at least once a week on multiple Chinese platforms (WeChat, bilibili, and Red). If there is an event in Decentraland, we can produce more. We will post weekly events and news about Decentraland in Chinese on WeChat groups. We are also gonna spend some grants to teach people that want to become creators using professional programs and knowledge.

The links to the previous videos do not exist anymore but as a Dao follower I want to see this. Could you please upload them again ?

This may have to do with ‘The Great Firewall of China’ and be more of an issue of those outside of China being unable to view content produced IN China.

It’s my understanding that the censoring goes both ways - Keeping unwanted content produced from outside the country inaccessible to its citizens, but also blocking access to content produced IN China from the outside world.

This is just a thought and it may not be what has happened here. All I know is that the Chinese government takes censorship very seriously and they police almost all aspects of internet content.

So nice this, imagine if he goes viral in China with we really could use such a countries population <3

By the way, as you’re a TIER 2, you have a one payment status, so, forget what I said about the vesting contract, was a mistake :wink:
