What is the Ambassador Program?

The Decentraland Community Ambassadors Program is an initiative designed to empower passionate and dedicated members of the Decentraland community to play a fundamental role in driving community engagement, fostering real-world connections, and promoting the Decentraland project globally. These ambassadors will be entrusted with organizing and leading IRL meetups, hackathons, talks, and other events, with the official support of the Decentraland Foundation and the Decentraland DAO.

Ambassador program objectives include:

  • Empowering the Community through Decentralization: The Ambassador Program aligns with Decentraland’s core principle of decentralization by entrusting community members with the responsibility of representing and promoting Decentraland at various events globally. This promotes a sense of ownership and involvement, fostering a decentralized ecosystem

  • Why are you applying?
    I love Decentraland and want to expand it’s reach! I enjoy talking all thing metaverse and a huge proponent of spreading knowledge in anyway possible!

  • What is your history with both Decentraland and Decentraland’s DAO?
    Began DCL in Nov 2021 and haven’t taken a break since!

Where do you live (city/area & country)?
Los Angeles, California, USA

Why are you applying?
I’ve been a Decentraland maxi since 2019 when I deployed my first “scene,” and in 2020, I left a high-profile real estate position to immerse myself full-time developing inside Decentraland. I love speaking about Decentraland and all aspects of technology - from concepts, to current implementations, to future hypotheticals. I also love teaching programming and showcasing the creative potential within Decentraland.

What is your history with both Decentraland and Decentraland’s DAO?
I have been programming inside the Decentraland SDK since 2019. KJWalker and I were honorable mentions in 2019 for a game jam submission. Since then, I have formed one of the largest collective of creators inside the space, Last Slice Collective and we have been recipients of 2 DAO grant proposals. I have also worked at the Foundation and also as a contractor for the Foundation.

What skills, qualifications, and experience will you bring with you?
I’ve been programming since I started teaching myself in 2004, more specifically inside Decentraland since private beta 2019. I’ve created Miniclip.com games, Flash Games, Android Apps, iPhone Apps, blockchain dApps and contracts, and now I am fully immersed in Decentraland SDK. Last Slice Collective has built the most popular scenes for the biggest named brands in the world; and we have pioneered transformative concepts that are used daily inside Decentraland.

Please share the details of an event you’ve planned in the past.

  • What type of event was it?
    An annual black-tie Gala supporting non-profit efforts in inner-city education platforms, with 1 volunteer event each month

  • What was your role?
    I was co-founder of the event

  • How many attended?
    200 people each year for 8 years until Covid paused the event

  • How did you define success? Was it successful?
    Success to us was two parts: 1) People buying a $150 ticket to the black-tie event were ALSO showing up to the volunteer events throughout the year; While we raised most of the money during the “big event,” it was awesome to see those donating actually volunteering throughout the year. 2) We sold out tickets each year, including sponsorship packages totaling over $50,000 each year.

  • Can you commit to planning at least 2 IRL events in your geographical area over the next 6 months?
    Absolutely!

  • Where do you live (city/area & country)?
    Singapore

  • Why are you applying?
    From a Web3 perspective, I have cultivated a passion for this emerging space, positioning myself as a dedicated Web3 enthusiast, researcher and a self-proclaimed Metaverse explorer. My expertise in these domains has culminated in my active participation as a speaker, where I have delivered presentations on various facets of Web3 and the Metaverse at closed door conferences and business seminars. However, my current professional engagement has regrettably precluded my acceptance at larger crypto-related conferences. It is with this backdrop that I am submitting my application to become an official Decentraland Ambassador. I envision this ambassadorship as a pivotal position from which I can contribute substantively to the discourse on Decentraland’s virtues and possibilities, enabling me to submit research papers and engage as a speaker at renowned conferences in Singapore and, potentially, abroad. My primary aim is to amplify awareness regarding the advantages that Decentraland brings to the forefront of the Web3 and Metaverse landscape.

  • What is your history with both Decentraland and Decentraland’s DAO?
    My involvement with Decentraland dates back to 2021, during which time I made a personal investment in the platform. Over the years, I have acquired numerous parcels, estates, as well as NAMEs and MANA assets within Decentraland. Beyond my investment activities, I have actively contributed to the Decentraland ecosystem by facilitating the introduction of two distinct NFT and MEMEcoin projects, thereby enhancing the platform’s overall presence.
    Furthermore, I have demonstrated my commitment to Decentraland by extending support to its builder community. I have successfully engaged at least two DCL-endorsed architects to create immersive scenes and models, hosted events on my estate, and actively participated in the scene review and testing process, offering constructive feedback to developers. Additionally, I have authored a web3 metaverse comparative analysis matrix for investors and users seeking to make informed decisions regarding the optimal platform or product within the metaverse landscape (Link: Web3 Metaverse Comparative Analysis (MetaRyuk) - Google Sheets). This matrix is also included in the DCL DAO Strategic Planning as a material of reference (Link: Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.)

  • What skills, qualifications, and experience will you bring with you?
    Public/guest speaker, adjunct lecturer, cyber security and digital asset analyst for a fortune 500 institution and web3 researcher in real life. Co-founder of a local cybersecurity community with over 3500 members.

  • Please share the details of an event you’ve planned in the past.

    • What type of event was it?
      Monthly local cybersecurity meetup and conference
    • What was your role?
      Event manager, speaker, trainer
    • How many people attended?
      At least 80 per meetup, >800 for conference
    • How did you define success? Was it successful?
      Started the community with less than 15 people in 2017. Grown to over 3500 members. This number is a metric that can be used to define success.
  • Can you commit to planning at least 2 IRL events in your geographical area over the next 6 months?
    Yes. I already have the community. It’s a matter of getting them exposed to Decentraland.

  • Where do you live (city/area & country)?

Southampton, UK

  • Why are you applying?

I fell In love with the platform as soon as I discovered it. I actively attend DJ sets and social gatherings to enjoy them while supporting and promoting community building. Additionally, I actively publicise those events on social media to reach a broader audience and possible new users. Moreover, I use my blog to promote users who organise events and artists who perform in the virtual world. Finally, I’m genuinely passionate about this place, and I feel a strong sense of belonging, which I would like to share with new members of the community. Indeed, since May 2023, I’ve been open and friendly toward other users, fostering connections and consistently supporting the community.

  • What is your history with both Decentraland and Decentraland’s DAO?

I first learnt about Decentraland in April-May 2022, and took my initial steps in the platform at the end of October 2022. Since May 2023, I’ve been active exploring DCL, attending events daily, promoting them on my socials, and engaging in gaming activities such as Metagamimall, and the gamified experience at Curation Station. During this period, I participated to DAO’s meetings whenever possible.

  • What skills, qualifications, and experience will you bring with you?

Throughout my life, I have been developing a diverse range of skills, with creativity being an invaluable tool to address various issues effectively. As a band member, I took the initiative to organise meetings, and resolve conflicts with difficult bandmates, demonstrating my problem-solving abilities. Similarly, during my time as bartender, I faced a shortage of supply, and reinvented the weekend menu accordingly.

Furthermore, my professional journey across different roles and occupations has fostered great adaptability, allowing me to apply my existing skills to new and evolving challenges. For instance, the positive and friendly attitude I developed during my time as a bartender helped me collaborate effectively with my fellow band members. Persistence enables me to overcome difficulties and achieve my goals. For example, I balanced my job as a bartender while simultaneously studying bass guitar, learning to manage time skilfully.

Moreover, during my life’s journey I have honed my abilities in budgeting, branding, social media strategy, and strategic planning. My experience as a cafe manager provided me with knowledge in budgeting and strategic planning. Concurrently, while promoting my bands and attending a module on the music industry, alongside a business course for freelancers, I exponentially expanded my understanding of branding and social media strategy, thus improving my research skills further.

Finally, loyalty is a crucial value for me which blends with my skills and connections, allowing me to commit to any role or task I engage in.

  • Please share the details of an event you’ve planned in the past.
    • What type of event was it?

During my studies, while working as a bartender and managing a cafe, I had the opportunity to organise a couple of private celebrations. This involved handling expenses, hiring personnel, acquiring supplies, gadgets, and decorations, creating a diverse range of menus to meet all needs, obtaining permission for live music if requested by costumers, and managing the event seamlessly.

  • What was your role?

As the host, I was responsible for ensuring the event proceeded smoothly, and that both customers and attendees were satisfied.

  • How many people attended?

Approximately 30 people attended that occasion.

  • How did you define success? Was it successful?

I considered it a success, as both my direct customers and their guests were satisfied and enjoyed the event.

  • Can you commit to planning at least 2 IRL events in your geographical area over the next 6 months?

Yes, I’m confident that with my skills and experience will allow me to engage with my community and effectively promote Decentraland and its vibrant community.

Where do you live (city/area & country)?

  • This is to ensure we have a variety of geographical representation.
  • Future iterations of the Ambassador program will not require geography to be disclosed as they may be remote opportunities.

Delhi, India

Why are you applying?

Based on our experience in onboarding numerous brands in the DCL and our strong presence in the rapidly growing Indian market, we believe it would be advantageous for DCL to give some focus towards this market. This strategic move aligns with the expansion efforts of DCL competitors (Sandbox & Spacial) and presents a valuable opportunity for DCL to grow and capture an emerging market.

What is your history with both Decentraland and Decentraland’s DAO?

Over the past three years, we have been actively engaged in the DCL, successfully onboarding numerous brands, both domestically and internationally. Me and my team members actively participate in DAO and are deeply committed to understanding the collective vision. We are passionate about discussing topics related to technology, growth, and how DCL can strategically position itself to tap into the vast potential of the Indian market.

What skills, qualifications, and experience will you bring with you?

My primary expertise lies in team leadership and business expansion across various domains. Through my company, Lapsus Next, I have established partnerships with multiple brands and successfully onboarded them in DCL and other metaverse platforms. My primary focus would be to facilitate DCL’s consistent growth in my designated region. Over the past two years, we have organized more than 16 in-person events in four different Indian cities with our second company Lapsus Creations, and forged partnerships with prominent brands such as Pepperfry, showcasing our commitment to this endeavor.

** Please share the details of an event you’ve planned in the past.**

  • What type of event was it?
    Hackathon in NMIMS College Mumbai

  • What was your role?
    Planning and Partnership with Brands

  • How many people attended?
    160 (40 teams of 4 people)

  • How did you define success? Was it successful?
    Success depended on Number of People Using the technology and creating something new. It was a great success as we got huge number of participants and the top 3 teams got combined price pool of USD1500.

  • Why are you applying?

I’m a decentraland builder, i make wearables and architecture for clients but i would like to have more approach with the users in latam, make workshops and events in spanish.

  • What is your history with both Decentraland and Decentraland’s DAO?

I started with the DG Spanish community (Casino) in 2021, entered their events, and participated in the Spanish chat on Telegram. After that, I investigated how to create wearables (at that time, they had recently become Polygon wearables - 2021), and now I’ve also participated in the Sandstorm contest, which includes involvement with the Decentraland DAO.

  • What skills, qualifications, and experience will you bring with you?

I bring a diverse set of skills and qualifications to the table. I have extensive knowledge in 3D modeling, and I’ve created more than 10 wearables and 10 scenes, showcasing my design expertise. As a designer, I can also assist in crafting textures tailored to Decentraland that can give them a unique touch. Over the past two years, I have actively participated in Spanish-speaking communities, building valuable connections and networks. My ability to engage with people and attract them to collaborate within Decentraland is a strength I bring to the table.

Was a small project and for the community that assist i think was successful.

Where do you live (city/area & country)?

Virginia, USA

Why are you applying?

I believe in the idea of Decentraland. As an early adopter, I want to educate others about the technology behind our platform and the endless possibilities it has to both disrupt and revolutionize the way we socialize, collaborate, learn, play, work, and do business. I feel that the ambassador program is the perfect opportunity to use my skills and experience to make a real impact in building and growing Decentraland.

What is your history with both Decentraland and Decentraland’s DAO?

I joined Decentraland on January 2022 and have since been highly active. In the beginning I helped brands and creators with wearable giveaways. Today I make video content and participate in DAO governance as an active voter and delegate. I am currently working on two documentation projects and authoring two governance proposals to improve the DAO grants program.

What skills, qualifications, and experience will you bring with you?

I am a skilled communicator, public speaker and instructor. My experience is in event management, community planning and research, photography, graphic design, social media, video editing and everything Decentraland. I am also currently pursuing a Bachelor of Computer Science.

Please share the details of an event you’ve planned in the past.

  • What type of event was it?

I have planned dozens of events, small conferences, PTA fundraisers, workshops and outings. Most recently I served as community manager for a coworking space, and with a small team of 4 people, planned community-wide food truck events, themed parties, entrepreneur workshops, charity soup nights, little library openings, and even a community garden project. I have also served as ambassador for South Dakota Voices for Peace. I partnered with non-profits and churches in the area to host underground information sessions for undocumented immigrants, earning the trust of communities that were apprehensive to attend out of fear of deportation.

  • What was your role?

I had various roles that ranged from project manager to food tsar, my duties included almost every aspect of event planning including ideation, delegating the task list, managing budget/expenses, coordinating volunteers, sourcing sponsors and materials, scheduling speakers, researching city ordinances, decorating, registration, promotion, logistics and breakdown. I also organized and moderated panel discussions.

  • How many people attended?

I have hosted and managed PTA fundraisers for about 200 families, a small AWAG (American Women Living in Germany) conference in Italy for about 150 military wives stationed overseas, countless entrepreneurial workshops for about 20 students at a time, and community-wide events like “Food Truck Friday” and “Sioux Falls SOUP” that garnered news coverage and a visit from the mayor.

  • How did you define success? Was it successful?

I define success by asking myself several questions and my goal is for the answers to overwhelmingly be “yes”. Did we manage to capture people’s interest by getting them to come, and were we able to keep them engaged while they were here? Did they walk away with what they came here to learn, or get? Did they give us enthusiastic and constructive feedback? Did they ask for another event? Did they offer any resources? Did they ask to become involved? Did they have fun and feel safe? What was our goal with this event, awareness, sign-ups, sales? Did we set a number and meet that goal? Yes, I have hosted very successful events and I am enthusiastic about what I can do working with Decentraland.

Can you commit to planning at least 2 IRL events in your geographical area over the next 6 months?

Yes, I have already begun by applying to be a presenter for the Digital Knowledge Center at my university and host workshops about the metaverse.

Greeting Decentraland team , my name is Matias Gallardo from Argentina, Córdoba, 25 years old.

I apply to Decentralad team to bring my experience to this project and help its growth in the Latin American and english- speaking regions.

How can I contribute to you?

  1. I would like to create local communities to attract as many Spanish-speaking members as possible: It is noteworthy that the regions of Latin America have devalued local currencies, which is why they are currently moving to the world of cryptocurrencies.

  2. I have extensive experience (3 years) in managing communities, I currently represent MDEX (MDX), a dex also listed on binance ranked #270 and BNB Chain in cryptocurrencies, which occupied the entire Latin American region as an ambassador.

  3. Attract KOLS, I have experience in speaking with reputable youtubers in LATIN AMERICA

  4. AMA events, the AMA events are a great participation fixture for the community, to publicize a project and its approach for which I have extensive experience conducting AMA’s in many communities.

  5. Local Events, In my country there is a large volume of people investing in cryptocurrencies, so holding local events in Argentina :argentina: can be beneficial for the project.

  6. Currently Marketing Strategist: I am graduated from the Marketing career at the 21st Century University, Córdoba, Argentina, so I can give contributions such as content marketing, market analysis and digital marketing. In this way I emphasize how I can give my contribution to Decentraland

My story begins with decentraland in May 2020 testing its first experience with its game and with the DAO I have always been attentive to its proposals, like when I saw this ambassador program and I was excited to be part
