Grant request for Aura Intro and Aura Helper videos
Organization: N/A (individual application)
This proposal is about easing the user experience for new defi users and ensuring that they are familiar with how to use Aura Finance, Balancer and some of the other protocols building in the ecosystem such as Redacted’s Hidden Hand, Badger’s graviAURA and the pounders on Llama.
This proposal seeks to complete a series of youtube helper videos that show a step by step guide on how to complete certain actions or answer certain questions. Examples would include how to claim using HH, how to use Aura Finance, how to create BPT etc. The first of these videos, How to delegate to Aura Finance video has already been completed and is here: Aura Finance Helper Video #1- How to delegate your vote - YouTube
Each video would meet the following criteria:
-Be no more than 5 minutes in length
-Include a video that shows step by step how to complete certain actions
-Must be in line with feedback received from the Aura Ambassadors regarding frequently asked questions and areas of concern from within the community.
Video 1 – How to delegate (completed)
Video 2- How to stake using Aura Finance
Video 3- How to use Hidden Hand and the incentives
Video 4 – How to mint AuraBAL and what it’s all about
Video 5- How to use other places for Aura Finance: Badger and Llama.
Video 6- How to Compare and contrast different Balancer pool tokens on Aura Finance
The above videos are an initial start with the option of completing any video for Aura finance as requested by the Community and as updated for relevance on an as required basis.
The initial request is for a wallet to be funded with 0.3 ETH and 100 Aura tokens (although more can be added if preferred). This will then be the wallet used to stake, earn incentives and generally use within the ecosystem. This wallet will also include set positions in different protocols to allow for a compare and contrast option as per video 6. Please note the contents of this wallet will remain the property of Aura Finance and are not meant for payment, they are to allow for demonstration.
Funding: The proposal to fund these videos is to allocate a flat rate of 500 Aura tokens per video which will be locked into vlAura upon receipt. Payment only to be made after the completion of the videos and once the Aura Ambassadors are comfortable with the content.
It is also requested that the ambassadors be allowed to request additional videos as needed to better answer community questions and to promote user engagement as required.
Benefits to the Aura ecosystem:
The video series will provide an easy on boarding experience to those who are new to defi or new to the protocol. The series can also be expanded to include tokenomics explanations or to host AMA type events at the discretion of Aura Finance.
As above. In Summary:
0.3 ETH and 100 Aura tokens for demo wallet
500 Aura per video (which will be locked)
Update: Please note that as I am a member of the committee that reviews these grant requests, I will not be voting or discussing my proposal in the committee setting. This is to ensure there is no conflict of interest as per the Committee guidelines.
