Terra Bites has established itself as the leader in news, information and developer resources for the Terra community. Throughout the last year, we’ve built an audience through podcasting, livestreaming, community discussions, developer materials and events.
Our mission is to continue educating developers and the broader community so that the Terra ecosystem and its projects can continue to flourish. In 2022 and beyond, we at Terra Bites want to expand our content offerings in a few key areas:
One of our primary missions is to continue developing, filming and publishing developer tutorials for Terra Academy. Developers are the lifeblood of the ecosystem, and by giving them resources to learn tools such as Rust, CosmWasm and TerraJS, we help expand the pool of talented developers building the future of finance on Terra.
Please see the current modules we’ve published for Terra Academy here: CosmWasm Smart Contracts I
Academy 2.0 will include modules for the following:
- Developer Tools (Terrain, CWScript, etc.)
- CW Storage Plus
- Testing and CI/CD Integration
- Other under-taught areas in full-stack Terra app development
We’re also creating tooling for developers to help them in ways beyond what v.1 of Terra Academy provided.
The first example of this is Playground, a graphical interface for learning, developing, and interacting with smart contracts. Users can not only take actions but see all of their effects – and learn how to retrieve those effects in any development environment.
We’ve already begun building the interface for this tool. For example:
- Load a smart contract and see the available actions and queries.
- Run those queries or execute those actions.
- See all of the effects of those actions, including transaction details, effects on storage and block details.
In addition to our commitment to developers with the above, Terra Bites will also continue to support the following “community growth” content initiatives.
Premium quality, documentary-style coverage of teams, projects, and initiatives in the space
Roundtable discussions with leaders in the space covering topics like TeFi, Gaming, NFTs, Stablecoins, Regulation, etc.
High-quality targeted articles to attract outsiders into Terra
Whitepaper breakdowns and simplifications
Hackathon content hosting and support
TeFi Alpha event hosting, livestreaming, and support
For us to continue growing the Terra Bites & Terra brands, our team and our operations must scale. We are asking for the following resources to support the growth and initiatives of Terra Bites:
• Full-time Staff @ $19.6k/monthly
• Part-Time Staff @ $9.75k/monthly
• Equipment, travel, studio rent, giveaways, business expenses @ $4k/monthly
Term: Through EOY 2022 (400,000 UST)
UST awarded will be deployed in a safe yield-earning strategy, using primarily insured Anchor Earn and secondarily audited vaults built atop Anchor products, in order to maximize the effectiveness of funds.
Another consideration is that Angel Protocol has discussed the possibility of expanding into “public works” funding, which might be an additional way to later receive sustainable funding for developer course content.
Please Note: Due to feedback during the draft stage of our proposal, and internal discussions with content creators in the space, we have decided to leave any funding for TerraTV out of this particular proposal.
Livestreamed discussions on the latest happenings in the Terra Ecosystem, plus interactions and community question answering in real-time.
Concise news content to help everyone stay on top of the latest in the fast-paced Terra ecosystem.
Project founders and associates share their vision with the Terra Bites audience.
Dozens of educational and walkthrough videos introducing developers to the tools and techniques required to build the future of finance.
Presentations by mentors and teams supercharge the experience for builders, potential investors, and excited community members.
On-the-ground interviews and livestream broadcasts from major Terra and DeFi events around the globe.
