The idea is to create informational and educational content about Idle 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
We opened an official discussion on the topic, receiving feedback from the community regarding the various parameters and the type of content to be considered for this grant.
@mangaa18 provided this detailed feedback, importing ideas from his content marketing experience, which in future editions of the edu grant we plan to include many of those insights, but for this first edition we prioritize a learner structure.
The reward will depend on the type of article and the number of topics covered.
The Pilot League will evaluate the contents and their quality, rewarding submissions that will be selected for the Idle Gitbook
|TYPE OF CONTENT||DESCRIPTION||REWARD|
|Overview article||An introduction, a general overview of a specific topic regarding Idle||Up to 15 $IDLE|
|In-depth article||Deeper and structured content as how-to guide of a specific topic regarding Idle||Up to 25 $IDLE|
|Developers/Tech article||Technical resources, developer tutorials, modules analysis/review, and anything that can be useful for integrating Idle||Up to 30 $IDLE|
Furthermore, there will be an extra reward of 10 $IDLE for anyone who will cover more than 3 topics.
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 between 500 up to 2000 words in length and you can also add visuals (charts, images, GIFs) 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):
|TOPICS||OVERVIEW CONTENT||IN-DEPTH CONTENT||DEV/TECH CONTENT|
|Idle Protocol overview (Architecture, Rebalance, Benefits)|
|Best-Yield and Risk-Adjusted strategies|
|Building on Idle (integrating idleTokens)|
|Deposit funds in Idle|
|Using Batched Deposits (and soon Batched Redeems)|
|Using Idle Dashboard tools (fiat-on ramps, migration tools, insurance [when available])|
|Idle Governance Process (IIPs creation flow, how to vote and delegate $IDLE)|
|Idle Smart Treasury|
The application window is open since the publication and there will be no deadlines.
