This proposal is for the on-chain funding period 01 December 2021 to 28 February 2021.
--Purpose of the Education Committee--
The Education Committee exists to create, update, and manage educational content to
accelerate the use and adoption of Secret Network. We work closely with other
committees to ensure our output is relevant and supports their and the overarching Secret
The Education Committee asks for a budget for the compensated leadership roles and a discretionary budget to put bounties on open projects and reward committee members on top of the rewards they are able to earn through the Secret Agent Program.
In line with recent governance consensus, our ask is now in USD, calculated to SCRT on the day the proposal goes on the chain with a risk buffer.
For your reference.
Our June-August ask was 1,500 SCRT/month/person -15h, $3,00/SCRT or ~$70/h
Our Septermber - November ask was 3,000 SCRT/month/person - 15h, $1,50/SCRT or $70/h.
Stefan | 001 - $70/h - 15 hours per week - $4,500 / month
Darren | FuzzyPizza - $70/h - 15 hours per week - $4,500 / month
The education committee requests a discretionary budget to compensate committee members for their work. This budget will be used to reward the completion of open projects like the creation of infographics, articles, written/video tutorials.
The Discretionary budget is based on:
3 Types of open projects (infographics, articles/written tutorials, and video tutorials),
a base time per project type (1,5 hour, 4 hours, and 8 hours respectively), expectation per project type (4/month, 8/month, 1/month respectively), rewards at $40/h
These open project bounties will be on top of the rewards one can earn in the Secret Agent program. The two reward structures combined will result in fair compensation for these smaller projects. We are fully aware that the ‘hourly’ rate is not up to professional level (professional video editor, professional photoshop artist). However, we believe that people with such professional skills can use open projects as a stepping stone to request SNAC funding, and we look forward to guiding such contributors in getting successfully funded for their ideas to grow the network.
The education committee has 1400 SCRT from previous funding rounds. Resulting from the steep increase of SCRT price during our last term. As a result, we believe the education committee is sufficiently funded for the coming 3 months in terms of the discretionary budget. Any SCRT left at the end of the funding period (3 months) will carry over to the next round. If both education leads discontinue their role the remaining funds will be transferred to the new leads.
Dumdidum | 𝕊001 = $4,500 / month
Darren | FuzzyPizza = $4,500 SCRT / month
Total Proposal Spend for 3 Months: $27,000 + 10% volatility buffer = $29,700
SCRT price at the time of going on-chain: $4,98 = 5,963.86 SCRT
