There are currently approximately 99+ blog posts written by Polygon, which will be translated into different primary languages: Yoruba, Hausa, Igbo and Pidgin English. This will immediately help the population easily understand POLYGON and its offering.

Delivery forecast:

  1. We will create a newsletter blog site that will be hosted on https://polygon.ng/

Timeline: 1 month

Milestone 2: Community activation, building and engagement.

Budget: $3,500

Description:

We make a well-defined action plan to convert curious builders and crypto enthusiasts into loyalists through the social media we create (quantitatively measured by the number of followers on Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, Instagram, newsletter subscribers) to engage and educate the community and consistently supporting the growing community as they explore Polygon and its ecosystem.

Delivery forecast:

  1. Local telegram channels we will create social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, Instagram, newsletter subscribers), managed and sustained.
  2. We will do marketing and build the accounts to nothing less than 10,000 followings on all social media platforms.
  3. Onboard 100 developers and 100 community ambassadors to the polygon network so that they can continue growing and evangelist for POLYGON even after our engagement.

Timeline: 2 months

Milestone 3: Outreach efforts + Developer awareness campaign + local event sponsorships

Budget: $5,000

Description & Delivery forecast:

Organise campus outreaches to focus university campuses in Nigeria, focusing on Lagos first, which will start from the University of Lagos and spread across state universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education. This would drive awareness, organise Hackathons to get enthusiasts actively engaged, and get our staunch ambassadors. The exercise will contain the champion of the spread of awareness around Polygon.

This grant will help immensely support our communities by offering free online and in-person events, outreach efforts, community projects, media production, and much more. This includes equipment, logistical and venue costs, improving the quality and access to our media (videos, photos, written, audio, etc.). We also support ongoing community Hackathons intending to light the fire within our community members to BUILD their ideas into reality and grow as individuals.

Timeline: 1 month
