Hello, Astar! I hope everything is going well for all of you!
Astar Network is expanding, and I believe that this topic should be discussed and it could be really beneficial to Astar, Astar’s projects, and potentially joining projects and companies. So, let me break down this proposal.
The Astar Network has become a popular platform for the development of blockchain-based applications and projects. As the platform grows, it is important to recognize the best projects and teams that have contributed to the ecosystem’s success. To this end, I propose the creation of a yearly award ceremony that will recognize and celebrate the best projects on the Astar Network. The awards will be designed to highlight excellence in various categories and will be voted on by the community.
- To recognize and celebrate the best projects on the Astar Network
- To encourage innovation and excellence in the development of blockchain-based applications
- To provide a platform for showcasing the best projects to a wider audience
- To build a stronger sense of community among Astar Network users and developers
Award Categories: The award ceremony will recognize projects in the following categories:
- Best Project Overall: This award will recognize the best project on the Astar Network based on its overall impact, innovation, and success.
- Best DeFi Project: This award will recognize the best DeFi project on the Astar Network based on its impact, innovation, and success.
- Best NFT Project: This award will recognize the best NFT project on the Astar Network based on its impact, innovation, and success.
- Best Newcomer: This award will recognize the best new project on the Astar Network based on its potential, innovation, and impact.
- Best Community: This award will recognize the project with the most engaged and supportive community.
- Best Support: This award will recognize the project with the best support system for users and developers.
- Largest TVL Gain: This award will recognize the project with the largest Total Value Locked (TVL) gain on the Astar Network.
Voting for the awards will be conducted on the Astar Network forum or through on-chain vote. The community will be given a specific timeframe to cast their votes. To ensure the integrity of the voting process, each wallet address will be allowed to vote only once and has to have either some transactions in Astar or must have some amount of ASTR inside. The winners of the awards will be announced during the award ceremony.
The award ceremony will be held annually and will be a multi-stream event, including Cosmize metaverse and YouTube. The ceremony will feature keynote speeches from industry leaders and experts, panel discussions, and presentations from the winning projects. The ceremony will provide an opportunity for the winning projects to showcase their work to a wider audience and attract more interest from potential investors and users.
Providing attractive prizes for the winning projects can be a great way to motivate them to continue innovating and contributing to the growth of the Astar Network ecosystem. Here are some potential prize ideas:
- ASTR Prize: A token prize can be given to the winners of each category. The amount can vary depending on the category and the available budget for the ceremony.
- Media Exposure: The winning projects can be featured in various media outlets, such as online publications, blogs, and podcasts. This can help increase their visibility and attract more users and investors.
- Marketing and Promotional Support: The winning projects can be given marketing and promotional support to help them reach a wider audience. This can include social media promotion, paid advertising, and other marketing strategies.
- Award NFT / Badges: Just for honor, create NFTs connected to the winning category, that project can share it with their community and others or for each category create badges pin them in the Astar Portal with the winning projects that can be seen there as a achievement.
Ultimately, the prizes awarded to the winning projects will depend on the available budget for the ceremony and the specific needs of the projects. The goal should be to provide incentives that will help the projects continue to grow and succeed on the Astar Network ecosystem.
The creation of a yearly award ceremony for the best crypto projects on the Astar Network will help to recognize and celebrate the best projects and teams in the ecosystem. The awards will provide an incentive for developers to continue to innovate and build high-quality projects on the platform. Additionally, the ceremony will bring the community together and build a stronger sense of community among Astar Network users and developers. We hope that this proposal will be considered and implemented to celebrate the achievements of the best projects on the Astar Network.
Let me know your thoughts on this proposal and remember all of these points are up for discussion. Have a wonderful sunday!
