The idea is to create informational and educational content about Idle finance and its protocol, as also discussed in this post. Since the community is growing, new users need to clearly understand what Idle is, by having several resources available divided by a specific topic.
The Pilot League has decided to initiate an Educational grant, under the category Community Grants, to reward users for creating educational contents about Idle
The reward will depend on the number of topics covered and the length of the article. The pilot league will decide which articles to select as acceptable; these will be the ones that will receive the reward
|500-999 words||10 $IDLE|
|1000-1499 words||25 $IDLE|
|1500-2000 words||35 $IDLE|
|TOP CONTRIBUTOR||EXTRA REWARD|
|+3 Topics covered||10 $IDLE|
Scope of the Work
The purpose is to create educational articles about Idle, since the Pilot League is planning to modify the current gitbook by also adding new educational content and resources.
For the first edition of this grant, the Pilot League asks its community to focus only on written content
Each written content must be up to 2000 words in length and you can also add visuals (charts, photos) to make the content more enjoyable.
The articles should always include an ELI5 paragraph so that beginners can follow along and understand the high-level concepts without feeling lost.
Assume your audience might not be specialized in math, finance, and computer science. They are sophisticated enough to use Metamask or other user-friendly wallets to perform simple DeFi transactions, without necessarily understanding everything that’s going on under the hood.
Topics to cover (main topics are written in bold, everything else is considered subtopic):
Idle Protocol overview
Providing liquidity on Idle
Using Idle Dashboard tools
– Fiat-on ramps
– Insurance [when available]
– Migration tool
Using Batched Deposits (and soon Batched Redeems)
Building on Idle (integrating idleTokens)
Smart Treasury overview
Best-Yield and Risk-Adjusted strategies overview
How Idle Governance works
– IIPs creation flow
– How to vote and delegate $IDLE
The application window will open as soon as the community’s active discussion phase under this post is completed to figure out how to integrate new parameters for this grant.
