Overview

Cardano and Catalyst is an ecosystem full of innovators, new ideas, and people already familiar with Decentralized Grants Programs. Due to shared values, this is a great ecosystem to onboard more contributors to Deep Funding and Singularity Net.

To facilitate onboarding, we want to make a Workshop about Deep Funding at the Cardano Summit to Onboard more users into Deep Funding and Deep Funding Academy a Platform created to onboard and educate users on Deep Funding. Live events are a great opportunity to make stronger impressions and lasting connections, and we should take advantage of this event to grow Deep Funding and to make our presence known in the Cardano Community.

Proposal Description

How Our Project Will Contribute To The Growth Of The Decentralized AI Platform

Cardano is a Community with shared values and a lot of builders and innovators contributing to decentralized grants programs. With this workshop, we hope to strengthen the presence of Deep Funding and SNet on Cardano and attract more individuals to become contributors to Deep Funding and Singularity Net. With this live event and leveraging Deep Funding Academy, we have an opportunity to have a stronger impact on individuals and a platform and community to effectively onboard new contributors

Our Team

I am a contributor to both Catalyst and Deep Funding, I'm a member of the Cardano Community who knows the communities and some of the opportunities and advantages Deep Funding can bring when compared to Catalyst. 

I'm very familiar with Deep Funding and Singularity Net, from the creation of video onboarding playlists for these communities, as well as due to my participation as a Teacher at Deep Funding Academy. 

Second team member will be selected based on potential value added to this proposal.

View Team

Company Name (if applicable)

Deep Funding Academy + Decentralized Nation

Competition and USPs

Here are some of the metrics we intend to track: 

  • Number of participants in the Workshop

  • Number of individuals Onboarded into Deep Funding / Deep Funding Academy ( Deep Funding Academy provides a direct line of contact and a platform to keep supporting users in their journey on Deep Funding)

  • Number of individuals engaged about Deep Funding during the event. (Direct contacts and conversations during the event)

If there is a future Deep Funding Round ongoing or soon after the event we will look to track as well:

  • Number of new proposals generated

  • Number of new  reviewers generated

Our minimum goal is to have at least 10 participants in the Workshop, speak to 20 individuals about Deep Funding, and at least 5 individuals onboarded into Deep Funding through the Deep Funding Academy. However, these are just minimum goals and we will be striving for much higher numbers.

Project details

This Proposal aims to take advantage of the Cardano Summit, an event that reunites a lot of builders and innovators from the Cardano Ecosystem, a partner ecosystem with a lot of shared beliefs with Singularity Net, to draw attention to Deep Funding and Singularity Net, and onboard contributors and builders into our Ecosystem.

We aim to create a captivating and engaging workshop within the Cardano Summit Event. This workshop will educate about Singularity Net and Deep Funding, and highlight the similarities between the ecosystems and the opportunities in our ecosystem, with the ultimate goal of onboarding contributors into Deep Funding. 

With this goal in mind, we will search to onboard individuals in this workshop, by guiding them through the process of creating an account on Deep Funding and enrolling them into Deep Funding Academy. 

Deep Funding Academy, was a funded proposal in Round 3 carried out by community members.  It created an onboarding platform into Deep Funding, with everything you need to learn to become an active and valuable contributor in any of the main roles: voter, reviewer, and proposer. Besides the platform, we have a community discord, where we keep in touch with the students and provide support in their endeavors and questions related to Deep Funding. 

Leveraging the Deep Funding Academy, we can make sure contributors are properly onboarded and have support at every step of the way to make sure they can become more efficient contributors, and add the most value to Deep Funding in every role. In addition, we make sure they are engaged immediately from the get-go, regardless if we have a live DF round or not.

As part of this marketing effort, we intend to create and make available some Deep Funding Merch that will hopefully attract more participants to the Workshop and help us with Brand awareness, as well as engaging with potential contributors during the event in one-to-one live conversations.

We've already had some early-stage contacts with the Cardano Foundation and we've been told it should be possible to carry such an initiative during the Cardano Summit.

We will also coordinate with the Deep Funding Team and the Marketing Circle, to try to bring as much awareness as possible, and in order to create the necessary merch for this event. We will also share the progress with the teams, and open the doors for a more direct participation of these teams into the workshop.

In terms of the execution of this workshop, we should have two members involved in the presentation. One of these members will be myself. I've been an active contributor to Deep Funding in the last 2 rounds. I'm a core team member of the Deep Funding Academy Team. We've created a whole course to onboard individuals into Deep Funding and created several presentations about Singularity Net and Deep Funding to Onboard new contributors, as well as QA and support for individuals engaging in this round of Deep Funding. I've also created an onboarding playlist for Singularity Net and another one for Deep Funding, generating content with thousands of views for our ecosystem.

I’m also a member of the Cardano Community, and an active contributor on Project Catalyst (voter, reviewer, proposer) , as such I’m aware of the benefits and advantages of participating in Deep Funding, as well as some of the needs and wants of the Cardano Community as a whole. This is one of the reasons why I consider this event an opportunity we cannot miss.


From these experiences, I believe I can properly present Singularity Net and Deep Funding and help onboard and support active contributors in their journey.

As far as the second person, we will extend this opportunity to the Deep Funding Team, and in case they are not available, we will open the opportunity for Deep Funding Community members to apply in the Deep Funding Academy Twitter, and search to take a community member with the strongest possible arguments and eventual ideas on how they can contribute from this workshop. We will also be engaging with Circle members, and other members of the Deep Funding Academy to select the best possible contributor for this workshop.

In terms of budget, we will search to cover the costs related to the event, such as tickets, accommodation, and travel. Costs with merch, as well as the labor necessary to prepare and market this event in order to maximize its chances of success and our reach within the event. The budget for each milestone will be depicted in the milestone section.

      Hello Gombilla, Thank you for your comment! In this Workshop we want to explain to as many individuals as possible how Deep Funding works and Onboarding them into our Ecosystem. However, our main focus will be on onboarding individuals and companies with great ideas in need of Funding. There are plenty of those in Cardano, and as such we will focus on showing them the opportunities within Deep Funding. There are very different categories they can apply, and even a lot of services already created they could leverage in their projects. Even though individuals are differents,  the majority of people in Cardano share a desire to do better, create a fairer and more transparent world. This is something that we have here as well in Singularity Net and it's a easy bridge that connects us to the Cardano Community.So we will focus on connecting through shared principles, and hooking people through the opportunities we have for them, that can help them make that positive difference in the world, wether you have your own specific ideas or you just want to help Deep Funding in making a difference.Does that answer your question Gombilla?Your question was very general, so definitely tell me something if your still have any specific concerns more than glad to try to address them.

    The unfortunate thing about team identity

    The numbers given by the team are very specific, they are completely quantitative (10 people attend the workshop, talk to 20 people,...). Proving the team's very serious intentions when developing this proposal. It's a pity not to know more about the other members, except the project owner Rafael_Cardoso - This has a negative impact on Feasibility

    effectiveness of Deep Funding VS Catalyst

    aims to increase community engagement and education about Deep Funding and the Deep Funding Academy. This project has great potential to expand the Cardano and Singularity Net communities by attracting innovators and builders to participate in decentralized funding programs. Hosting a conference at the Cardano Summit is a great opportunity to make a strong impression and make lasting connections. However, the project also faces a number of challenges such as selecting a second member based on the potential added value to the proposal, as well as ensuring community participation. In addition, evaluating and comparing the effectiveness of Deep Funding versus Catalyst is also a limitation that needs to be carefully considered. Even so, with the commitment and deep understanding of its contributors, the project has the potential to create real value for both the Cardano and Singularity Net communities.

    Hey Nicola, 

    Would love it if you could make your review a little bit more informative to understand how exactly this proposal could be improved to have a higher rating in your opinion? 

    It's just because it's not clear what you think should be improved and at the end of the day that is the value reviews should have, to help proposers improve on their efforts and come with better proposals every round.

    Also, I would like to make it clear that the focus of this proposal, is actually onboarding individuals to Deep Funding not just raising awareness, and the Deep Funding Academy will be used as a means of onboarding as it is an educational community with all the educational content you need to learn how to become a valuable contributor to Deep Funding, and a community with teachers and a point of contact that will provide newcomers with all the  support they need during the Deep Funding rounds.

    Addressing some of the concerns mentioned in this review, selecting a second member won't be a challenge at all. The second member is not crucial to the realization of the proposal, it could be done without this member in the worst-case scenario, however, I feel having a second pair of hands, and also a different perspective and story from my own will add much value to the presentation and to the overall effort we will be doing during the workshop to Onboard more individuals into Deep Funding. Because we will also be doing one one-on-one conversations with innovators we believe could bring a lot of value to Deep Funding.

    The position will be open to the Deep Funding team, and if the team is not available it will be open to the whole Deep Funding community, and fortunately, there are a lot of members familiar with Cardano in Deep Funding, and a lot of individuals interested in helping with this initiative and participating in the conference. As such on that side we should not have any problem or challenge finding a second team member.

    In terms, of ensuring community participation in the workshop that won't be a problem. Besides providing merch as reward for participants and doing some contacts and Marketing during the event,  we have a topic that solves a big need in Cardano. Even with Catalyst, there is a lack of funding opportunities for projects and entrepreneurs and not enough funding to fund all the good ideas and initiatives in Catalyst.  After each Catalyst funding round, there are a lot of great companies and ideas that don't get funded and Deep Funding can feel in for that need. For everyone participating in Catalyst the process of learning how to participate in Deep Funding is super easy and they can even use the same wallet. 

    In addition, from my participation as a L2 Community reviewer in the last rounds, I see a huge increase in AI related projects on Catalyst, and from Teams that are not yet contributing in Deep Funding so the Opportunity is huge.

    In terms of the comparison, that is also an extremely easy part. So many people, complain about Catalyst, the centralization of operations and decision-making behind a single team, and how voting is dominated by whales and results are not always fair. 

    Well Deep Funding solves many of these problems, there is a real decentralization effort in Deep Funding with the Circles and from my experience, here the community is heard and there are many more changes and improvements each round when compared to Catalyst. Just look how after 12 rounds Catalyst still doesn't have its own platform like Deep Funding has even after many complaints about the platform they use ( Ideascale). 

    So far, in SIngularity Net, due to quadratic voting, and reputation mechanisms, you don't have as big of a problem with whales, usually the best proposals are rewarded, as you can see that when you have good reviews there is a high likelihood your proposal is funded. In Catalyst, is common for proposals with low reviews from big players to get funded, which generates a lot of frustration and makes it an unfair playground for new teams or experienced teams with less of a following and community support. These are just a few examples of how we can make the case for Deep Funding. and the great part is people don't need to choose one or the other, they can participate in both. Having more options and not depending only on one source of funding is a sound practice for any business or entrepreneur.

    Promote Deep Funding On The Cardano Summit

    This proposal will host a Deep Funding Workshop at the Cardano Summit to introduce more users to the Deep Funding and Deep Funding Academy, a Platform created to introduce and educate users used for Deep Funding. This is a good idea, it will definitely help more people know about Deep Funding.
    I feel that this proposal should look for more suitable members because currently there is only one member in the project team.

    Introducing Singularity Net at Cardano Summit.

    Introducing Deep Funding and Singularity Net at Cardano Summit.
    Proposed to take advantage of the massive Cardano Summit event that brings together many innovative developers to organize a workshop introducing Deep Funding and SingularityNET to attract contributors to Deep Funding.
    1. Feasibility:
    - This proposal is completely feasible and can be implemented successfully. Because the team includes members with profound experience and positive contributions to Deep Funding in recent rounds. The group has created courses, and introductions and attracted many participants to the ecosystem, proving the group's reputation and influence in the community.
    - The group identifies the exact target, specifically 10 people participating in the Workshop, talking to 20 individuals about Deep Funding and at least 5 individuals participating in Deep Funding. To achieve this goal, I think the group should add more content and presentation methods in the seminar to attract more people's interest.
    - The proposal team has received support from the Cardano Foundation, so this proposal will be implemented.
    - Propose to take advantage of providing educational resources to introduce knowledge to workshop participants through the Deep Sponsorship Academy.
    2. Viability:
    - The success of this proposal depends on the team making an attractive presentation highlighting the benefits and potential that Deep Funding and Singularity bring to developers. At the same time, the team supports participants to bring long-term value to the project.
    - The team coordinates with the Deep Funding Team and the Marketing Team, so this proposal will attract the attention of many developers
    3. Desire
    - To attract more Cardano ecosystem developers interested in Deep Funding, the team should present the benefits of deep funding compared to other platforms
    - Focusing on clearly explaining Deep Funding and SingularityNET to increase knowledge while supporting development is a potentially valuable and much-needed proposition for developers.
    4. Usefulness:
    - The project has the potential to raise awareness about SingularityNET among Cardano developers to attract their interest.
    - Taking advantage of good relationships in the Cardano ecosystem helps the team reach a wide audience.
    - The proposal lacks details on how they will support active community participants in different positions or launch new initiatives that apply decentralized AI technology.

      • Strengths: The proposal offers a way to directly connect with potential Deep Funding contributors.
      • Weaknesses: The proposal lacks details on how the workshop will address the specific needs and interests of Cardano developers.

    Overall, the proposal has a good foundation, but focus on:

    • Workshop Content: Clearly define the workshop content, tailoring it to Cardano developers' interests and highlighting how Deep Funding complements existing Cardano grant programs.
    • Long-term Engagement: Outline strategies to nurture engagement beyond the workshop, encouraging participation in Deep Funding activities (proposals, reviews).
    • Metrics: Define metrics to track not just workshop attendance but also long-term outcomes like proposals submitted or reviews completed.

    Strengths:

    • Leverages existing connections within the Cardano community.
    • Offers onboarding resources through the Deep Funding Academy.
    • Targets a relevant audience (Cardano developers) interested in decentralized funding.

    Weaknesses:

    • Relies on securing a workshop slot and effectively competing for developer attention.
    • Needs to demonstrate the unique value proposition of Deep Funding for Cardano developers.
    • Lacks clear metrics for measuring long-term engagement and impact.

    By addressing these considerations, the proposal can increase the chances of a successful workshop and attract new contributors to Deep Funding.

    Hello Joseph, 

    Thanks for this incredible comprehensive review. 

    In terms of the workshop, we have some initial contacts with the Cardano Foundation, they are promising and sound interest in  a workshop of this type, however is not completely locked yet and on our side we also need the funding to be able to move forward.

    In terms of interest and strategy to target developers and companies, its really simple because there is a huge Need for Funding in the Cardano Ecosystem. A lot of good companies, even established companies cannot get the funding they need due to the high competition in Catalyst. Deep Funding could present itself as a new opportunity to get some of their ideas and projects financed, It's a super easy onboarding for someone already participating in Catalyst, processes are similar and you can even use the same wallet.

    In addition, from last rounds including this one, I've been a L2 proposer reviewer in Catalyst and I've seen how many proposals are there related or using AI, so even there , we have a lot of alignment with our Ecosystem.

    In terms of Deep Funding Academy we will be preparing a report soon with all the relevant Metrics from this Project, however is still not ready for the public. However, if you go check our proposal we can see some of the metrics and achievements from this proposal in those reports. 

    In addition, having a live discord with experienced people in Deep Funding there to help you and guide you through the process can be a great advantage for the onboarding of these new contributors.

    Thanks for the Great insights and hope my answered some of your concerns! 

    Thanks Joseph!
