Proposal Description

[ Describe your project in detail: make it clear the final deliverable of your proposal and how it will benefit the IoTeX ecosystem. Tell us about your existing community, or how you plan to acquire users; if you already deployed your project, on what network; if you already have a website, if you need specific resources from the IoTeX foundation, which ones.

We’d like to build a IoTeX community dashboard on Alphaday that aggregates IoTeX news, on-chain data, social media, dev resources and much more into one customizable UI.

Having all this information in one place allows IoTeX stakeholders (ie. users, developers, investors) to easily stay up to date on IoTeX ecosystem updates, see the latest news and developments, do research and stay engaged. In general users who can track their favourite projects more easily stay more engaged with the project which in turn supports user retention.

Additional Info:
Basically our IoTeX Alphaday dashboard will provide a single end-point from which users can consume all the information on IoTeX. Specifically, the IoTeX Community Dashboard will aggregate all the discussions, talking points, narratives, events, metrics, official announcements and much much more into one single dashboard. With one glance at this dashboard community members would have a top-down view of what is happening across the entire IoTeX ecosystem. From this view they could then jump deeper into their areas of interest (ie. devs to dev documentation, IOTX holders to twitter and reddit discussions, investors to on-chain metrics across both IoTeX’s own pages and to third-party data providers.)

About your Team

[ Describe your team members with skills and links to profiles like Linkedin/GitHub/Portfolio ]

I’ve been involved in the Ethereum space since early 2016 and joined Kyber Network in 2017 as Head of Ecosystem Growth before quitting to start Alphaday full-time in 2021. Previously I worked at Thomson Reuters for a decade building financial products that rivaled the Bloomberg Terminal. I am currently also a Venture Partner at IOSG.VC

My co-founder Felipe has also been involved in Ethereum since 2016 and was a Developer Advocate at Pegasys and Consensys before quitting to work full time on Alphaday.

Alphaday’s third co-founder is DeFiDude who used to be a community manager at both Aave and Kyber Network before co-founding Alphaday.



[If applicable, please provide the number of users/transactions you expect your product to bring to the IoTeX ecosystem]

Once we’ve created a IoTeX dashboard, we will promote this across the IoTeX community and start collecting feedback so that we can keep iterating and improving our dashboard. For us success is if a large number of IoTeX stakeholders come to the IoTeX dashboard to stay up to date with everything happening within IoTeX and then use the available data as jumping off points into the various parts of the IoTeX ecosystem. Ie. IOTX holders using the board to finding trending governance topics to participate in, devs using the dev docs to dive deeper into the technical documents, newcomers listening to the latest podcasts and learning the IoTeX ecosystem.

In terms of concrete numbers, considering IoTeX has 227K twitter followers and using this as a very crude proxy for community size, we would consider it a success if we could serve at least 1% of them on a monthly basis (2.27k MAU).
