After the Community Call Americas today (2/24) we discussed creating a template for Project Posts. Where web3 projects and devs can post their projects in an effort to capture and categorize the developments happening in each of the subject categories that this forum covers. There are so many projects out there, this should help the community with a repository of projects in the most objective fashion (staying away from marketing).
My suggestion for the template includes the following items:
- Set your Project Post under an existing category on the SCRF Forum (Meta; Auditing and Security; Oracles and Data; Consensus; Scaling; Mechanism Design & Game Theory; Governance and Coordination; Cryptography; Tooling and Languages; Privacy).
What Does it Do?
- Include a description of the project and its objectives.
How Does it Work?
- Include a description of how the project works, how a customer interacts, or what a user is supposed to achieve.
What Problem Did Your Project Solve?
- Include a description of the problem your project was solving.
Other Approaches to the Problem Being Solved
- Include a list of similar projects or other current solutions that solve the same problem you are addressing.
Backstory or Inspiration
- What inspired you to create the project? Include a description of the backstory and influences on the project.
Technical Applicability to Web3 Community at Large
- Describe what technical solutions you’ve achieved that are different than what is out there today. If your project is open source, please feel free to document code repositories that show your unique solutions.
Conceptual Applicability to Web3 Community at Large
- Describe what conceptual value your project brings to the web3 community at large. What big questions does it address? What paradigm is it working with?
Papers, Blogs, or Articles That Influenced Your Project
- Create a list of citations and links to papers, blogs, articles, or other posts that influenced the project. This can also include Zotero or other citation libraries.
Questions Still to be Answered Within Your Project
- What research questions are you still exploring? What might you need answers to that the Web3 community can help with?
Please comment with suggestions or feedback on the template! Consider: how can we get information about projects out there in an unbias and objective fashion that adds to critical development and critical thinking within the web3 space?
