Hey Zcash peoples,
I’m really excited to announce the Zeme team project. I believe we can really help spread the word of Zcash while driving us closer to the end goal mission.
The Zeme team project is intended to incentivize the community. There aren’t many ways to earn ZEC right now, especially Shielded ZEC. Creating and posting Zcash graphics to https://zeme.team will allow creators to easily receive tips from anyone in the community. They’ll have direct links to their work that they can share to social media to drive more tips.
We plan to use $5,000 USD of the grant funds to directly tips creators. Ideally, we’d like to continue to receive monthly grant funds going forward so that we always have a pool of funds to use for tipping purposes.
As a result of this, we should see a massive increase in the amount of Zcash related graphics being produced and shared across social media. I believe we’ll be able to pull in people from other communities (especially Doge) to help create content. Everyone will be tipped in shielded Zec, which furthers the mission of privacy adoption as well.
Thank you for taking the time to consider funding our project. If you have any questions, I’m more than happy to answer them.
Finally some marketing, hope you get funding🚀
Yesterday we created a Twitter account for Zeme.team and started working on the branding design. It’s coming together nicely!
Edit: I missed that their team answered some of these questions at this post: ZOMG meeting minutes 3-30-2021 - #4 by Ziga
Hey Zeme team!
@ZOMG had initial discussions about your proposal at our last meeting and had a few questions/comments:
- Are there copyright issues around the artwork you are posting/curating? How would you deal with someone’s art/meme being posted to your site to get tips without the original creator’s permission?
- Can you provide a portfolio of your work outside of this project?
- Can you provide a few popular retweet examples from your Twitter feed that are Zcash related?
- Can you elaborate on your experience doing similar projects and where have you seen the model that you proposing work (outside of Zcash)?
- We have concerns around the budget for the grant. Would it be possible to scale down the scope of the proposal to decrease costs?
Thank you for taking the time to address these questions!
Thanks @Shawn! Missed this, my bad.
Thank you for the response. More answers below:
Are there copyright issues around the artwork you are posting/curating? How would you deal with someone’s art/meme being posted to your site to get tips without the original creator’s permission?
Yes, absolutely. All user generated content websites are responsible for taking down copyright violations. Users can reach out to us to file a claim and we’ll address it as needed.
Can you provide a portfolio of your work outside of this project?
I sent my portfolio over to Chris. I asked him to share it with the rest of your team.
Can you provide a few popular retweet examples from your Twitter feed that are Zcash related?
Here are a few Tweet examples:
The Ziga account started the entire in username movement on Twitter.
Please keep in mind this Twitter account was only started 3 months ago with 0 followers. We’ve generated 1M Tweet impressions within a few months. The community is loving the content we’re producing. The Ziga account has been one of the most popular Zcash related accounts in the past few months.
Can you elaborate on your experience doing similar projects and where have you seen the model that you proposing work (outside of Zcash)?
Yes, there are many of these types of websites that are popular in the Doge community. I haven’t seen one where they allow the artists to be tipped too. The incentive model is what makes it way more interesting in my opinion.
We have concerns around the budget for the grant. Would it be possible to scale down the scope of the proposal to decrease costs?
There are many steps to the project. It will be difficult to cut any of them out without downgrading the overall experience.
- Design (branding, desktop experience, mobile experience)
- Code (server, front-end)
- Content monitoring
- Social media outreach / promotion
- Tipping content creators
Anything we trim from the proposal will make the experience less than ideal. For example, we can cut out making the website responsive on mobile, which would save a few weeks from design and development. However, the experience wouldn’t be so great. The cost of our proposal is what it would cost to build this project out correctly.
