There is no place where to find all the documentation and information being produced by an ever growing Cardano community.
ALDEA Wiki is the go-to place to both find and share knowledge and information about all things Cardano in a multi-language platform.
This is the total amount allocated to ALDEA Wiki - Cardano Encyclopedia
ALDEA is an already growing community. Within it, people from all over Latin America and the hispanic world are getting together to collaborate on many initiatives. Some at the regional level, others -like this one- with worldwide potential.
There is a wealth of information that already exists within the Spanish Community of Cardano. Writers, promoters and early adopters are actively creating this content. We want to bring them together in a standardized way, leverage the information and expertise in order to create the initial set of articles for the wiki.
This will serve as launching platform to become the biggest Cardano Wiki, not just in Spanish, but for all languages.
To build any respectable repository of information takes time. To make it properly and multi-language, takes even more time. But not when we're working as a community to make it happen for the benefit of all.
The intent is not only to share relevant articles and topics, but also to grow the community and foster collaboration. We encourage writers and content creators from around the world to bring on their own projects and grow their reputation at the same time.
How will ALDEA achieve this?
A phased approach is only natural, when the most important metric to measure growth is the number of active members, driven by the up-to-date, relevant articles and documents.
Our Phase 0 Wiki or MVP consists of a working engine, with a given number of articles, members and roles, to serve as a pilot for the project. This is already in progress and will be published during the following weeks, before Fund5 Governance Phase.
Phase 1 - Spanish (Fund5) aims to both grow the number of articles and gain traction within the Spanish Community by promoting awareness and spreading the word. This will help bring more writers and content creators forward, making the number of articles and collaboration to grow exponentially.
Phase 2 - Portuguese & English (Fund6) will help bring the Brazilian Community to the project, while entering the worldwide stage by promoting the creation of articles in both Portuguese and English.
Phase 3 (Fund7) and subsequent phases will keep on adding languages, organically building the number of articles and promoting awareness and adoption around the globe and the many different community hubs within the Cardano Ecosystem.
TOTAL: USD 5960.-
We will measure the growth of ALDEA Wiki using the followings metrics:
How my proposal impacts the challenge metrics & How I address the challenge question?
Phase 1 of ALDEA Wiki aims to create an initial set of articles with focus on Project Catalyst and everything proposers need to know about it, among other topics. In order to do this, we'll leverage the content being created as part of the ALDEA Catalyst project. This will generate awareness and encourage entrepreneurs to submit proposals.
