The Polkadot community is growing and new people joining the ecosystem need high quality and engaging content about Polkadot. We would like to find community members to write an article or guide to help the community to learn more about the Polkadot project and how to get involved.

While deeply technical blogs are appreciated, it is also possible to write about the future possibilities enabled by Polkadot (including Substrate).

Take a look at the Polkadot medium for inspiration.

Requirements

A correct submission will:

  • 400 words or more.
  • Provide information about Polkadot that has not already been written about on Polkadot medium
  • Include graphics or video tutorials where necessary.

Bounty

This issue now has a funding of 300.0 DAI (300.0 USD @ $1.0/DAI) attached to it as part of the Web 3 Foundation fund.

Just as an FYI for all bounty hunters: the total pot of funds is 300 Dai, but we are looking for 2 submissions. That means that each individual submission is eligible for 150 Dai.

I have experience writing for other cryptocurrency topics like wallets, miners, and consensus algorithms in a way that builds a loyal following. As a developer and copywriter, I can explain complex tech topics to a general audience in a fun and engaging way with a good amount of narrative and hype. After browsing some of your previous articles I'd like to add that I'm a native English speaker and can improve upon the grammar and spelling used in other posts.

12) shkr has been approved to start work.

I will read all the posts on medium.com. I am systems engineer. I have a good understanding of blockchain, privacy and polka dot. I will identify a novel insight about the parachains and how polkachain implementation is equipped to handle it.

Hey there!

I follow Polkadot rather closely and would love to write an article about you guys (regardless of whether or not I get the bounty later). I have been "doing" blockchain for over 6 years and have been writing about blockchain ideology for the past 2 years or so.

More money can be added to the pot for further submissions in the future.

Keep this in mind while applying! Thanks and good luck!

@Ryan-Gordon

Hey Ryan. We hope it can be put on to medium, but no guarantee at the moment. I'd look to format the post with that in mind. Obviously people who reach out to us are more likely to be successful in getting accepted. Email is good, otherwise in our Riot chat room.

We are approving people to work on our bounties but also pointing out that the funding pot holds the total prize money.

Perhaps our tutorial bounty could also be of interest: #60

Was I suppose to check this in gitcoin? I got approved there already, so thought I was just meant to drop the actual file here. Was I?

Thanks
