Second round of requesting astar token to support event in Chinese community

Hello Astar community, I am DrCAO, astar ambassador, and also the founder of AIWeb3. I would like to request 5000 Astar tokens to support the second round of Astar & AIWeb3 “ZkEVM era of Astar 2.0” video and article competition event.

Special thanks to Ramz for his support, providing great ideas, and suggestions, and being willing to serve as advisor of this event!

Astar Address: akBsuDRUzk9hRxiLRdQTcFsgsHoa5PvWQuPVjrEK6zkLU3X

The first event generated 18 original contents about Astar, out of our initial expectations and we also organized other events and ama (link here with a summary at the end: Request astar token to support event in Chinese community).

Now it is the holiday season and also we had the zkEVM and Astar 2.0 update, it is probably a good idea to organize another event to bring Astar to the Chinese market again and celebrate the holidays.

Here are possible tasks for this fun competition:

Task 1: “ZkEVM era of Astar 2.0” Video and article Contest

Use creativity to produce videos and will receive up to 10 DOT (Provided by AIWeb3) + some Astar (Provided by Astar) + AIWeb3 Chinese community creator role and level rewards + continuous support from AIWeb3 Chinese community and Astar community for creators, and more!

The AIWeb3 Chinese community continuously produces high-quality content for the Polkadot community. To better help the Polkadot community and help everyone to better understand the products in the Polkadot ecosystem, the AIWEB3 & Astar jointly created the “ZkEVM era of Astar 2.0” content sharing bounty program.

Anyone can create content related to Astar and participate in this event, and you will receive generous rewards! For everyone who participates in this event, DOT rewards will be given as long as the requirements are met!

Task 2: twitter space ama or other formats of the event for users
We can organize Twitter space ama and share the update of Astar network, users can also share their opinions and support for the Astar network. We will collect ideas from the community and be open to any other formats of events for content creators and users, such as Airlyft. We will also try to work with other projects in the eco to bring more impact to the event and exposure of Astar to the community.

Task 3: Discord game
We will develop one discord game for the AIWeb3 community, where users would use the point (can be claimed every day for free) and collect the Astar card, and by the end of the event, users can share the reward from the reward pool, more details coming soon. Every time when a user gets the Astar Card, we can share short description of Astar, and also share one event or news from Astar, so it would be a good promotion.

Purpose:
Encourage and find more content creators to produce and share educational videos or articles related to Astar network, and for general users to try Astar’s products.

Content includes at least one of the following points:

1、Introduction to Astar Network: A comprehensive overview of the project, its goals, and the team behind it.

3、How the Astar dApp staking works.
4、Astar 2.0: A walkthrough of the key features of Astar 2.0, promote the supernova, share the latest update and share your opinion about Astar 2.0.
5. Any other cool ideas to generate content related to Astar network

I’m thrilled to express my support for the Astar & AIWeb3 “ZkEVM Era of Astar 2.0” video and article competition. This initiative is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the innovative strides of Astar in the ZkEVM domain. It’s inspiring to see the community come together to create and share knowledge. Such events not only foster creativity but also strengthen our understanding of Astar’s advancements.

99% of the information I know about the Astar network is from AIWeb3’s videos

I always support such events.

But how logical is it for all ambassadors to participate in the voting? How can we judge the quality of the content without knowing Chinese? Do you only want us to judge based on metrics (engagement rate, number of likes, RTs)?

I love this kind of initiative! I really appreciate the work you have been doing @DrCAO. I am aware of the big market share that Astar network has in Japan and China at the moment (I hope that in Latin America we will reach the same level someday), that’s why I value the enthusiasm in creating events that connect and retain users, which are the most important keys.

After seeing the results of the previous event, you have my full support for this second event, success dude!

I believe it is an excellent initiative to share and raise awareness of Astar in the area that I believe is very advanced in the use and understanding of blockchain, Asia.
Delighted to see these high quality ideas :clap: @DrCao you have my full support :smile:

P.S. At some point we will definitely need to have a friendly community competition in any zkEVM game :crossed_swords: :fire: :smile:

Thank you for the very intriguing proposal.

I learned that there is such an approach to growing the community. Additionally, it’s interesting that Astar’s ambassadors(Ecosystem Agent) can judge this competition. I would like to consider your activities as a benchmark when contemplating activities for the Japanese community.

I would definitely like to rooting for you.

The activity idea is quite interesting. However, I would like to ask for your permission to ask a few more questions.

  1. In addition to the objectives set, are there any target numbers? For example, how many people do you want to participate in the activity? How many works do you want to receive?

  2. The measurement criteria are quite interesting. If the person who creates has a large follower base from the beginning, will it cut off the opportunity for others? Is there a way to deal with this case?

Great comment, it is optional, we don’t need everyone to vote on it. For those who are interested, and who wants to vote, they can, just like the first time, we have a few ambassadors who voted, and we can also have the whole community to vote. I am also open to any other ideas, thank you very much!

Thank you very much for all of those great questions!

  1. In addition to the objectives set, are there any target numbers? For example, how many people do you want to participate in the activity? How many works do you want to receive?
    Answer: I would expect 10 submissions at least, so 10 content creators participate in the event, so that we can bring the Astar to different communities through those content creators.

  2. The measurement criteria are quite interesting. If the person who creates has a large follower base from the beginning, will it cut off the opportunity for others? Is there a way to deal with this case?
    Answer: There are 60% of the originality and quality, so if someone has a large follower base but has made very bad content, the score may not be high. We would like to encourage high quality content in this case, but of course, we also want influencers who can share Astar with more audiences. In addition, for all participants, we will reward DOT , so the early stage content creators don’t need to worry, and we will help to promote their work, so they would get more support and more audience from this competition. I hope in the future, those content creators can talk more about Astar, about Polkadot eco, and can become KOL in the future!
