Hello Zenon Community,
I trust that we all share a common vision for the robust growth and success of our network, and therefore, I’m bringing forward a proposition that seeks to align the interests of all parties involved. It’s a proposition that seeks to not only encourage our developers in their pursuit of innovation but also motivate our marketing teams to push the boundaries in user adoption. The intent behind this post is to foster a community discussion and get your invaluable feedback.
We’re at a pivotal moment in our journey, potentially on the verge of making history with one of the largest payouts in Accelerator-Z’s history. Such an occasion calls for careful thought, due diligence, and a commitment to securing the maximum benefit for our ecosystem.
Over the past weeks, there’s been substantial conversation around @sumamu Accelerator-Z request for the development of the Multiverse project. Many of us have seen the detailed proposal and understand the vast potential this cross-chain solution holds for our ecosystem. They’ve asked for 95k ZNN and 950k QSR, and while this might seem hefty, the critical role this infrastructure plays in the realization of our vision cannot be underestimated.
However, I’m aware that some valued members of our community have expressed reservations about the sizable request. They are supportive of the project but I would argue would feel more confident if the ask was tied to the achievement of specific adoption milestones.
So, I’d like to put forward an idea: Let’s explore the possibility of merging this development request with a marketing initiative that could submit its own separate proposal. The principle is simple: Accelerator-Z funds should be disbursed when certain milestones (e.g., a specified trading volume on Uniswap or a certain level of adoption for the proposed multi-chain bridge technology) have been achieved.
This approach incentivizes both our product engineers and marketing teams to work in unison towards maximizing their payouts. It drives our engineers to focus on creating marketable products that align with user needs and optimal UX, while marketers are inspired to promote the product and achieve the desired adoption targets.
To enhance this approach, I propose the introduction of incentive multipliers. These would act as bonuses, rewarding the teams for surpassing expected adoption rates or hitting milestones faster than anticipated. The net result? A payout directly tied to successful product adoption, creating greater assurance for the community and closer alignment with our return on investment.
I firmly believe that this model can encourage an effective symbiosis between our developers and marketers, leading to more user-oriented and marketable products. More importantly, it ensures every ZNN spent delivers tangible value to our ecosystem, driving Zenon’s growth and success.
What do you think of this approach? I invite you to debate and discuss what types of metrics and milestones we should consider for this specific application. Your insights and perspectives are crucial in refining this proposal and moving forward in a way that ensures the maximum benefit for all aliens.
