We are now on day 5 of the kGeyser challenge, and it’s exciting to see that 50% or more of all achievements have been completed. You guys have been amazing and I have heard almost zero negative comments about the challenge or the hub. I can see that some members have been gathering the participation points very industriously by forming groups and joining them among other things, so this achievement will probably be the first one to be unlocked. Points from the new member signups (235×11=2585p.) and educated amplifier badges (50×25=1250p.) remaining will alone fill that remaining gap ( ~1500p.) almost three times over.
Looking at the new member signups however things are looking a bit more grim, that is unless we start actively doing something about it. A range of different methods have been discussed in the DAO leadership, advertising, bounties, etc. However we would be cheating ourselves if we were spending resources allocated for educating about Ample and marketing products in order to fill a quota of member signups with more or less passive members.
That goal of 500 is ambitious, and there’s no way we could reasonably expect to have that many active members from the very beginning. Aave’s governance forum has ~550 members, and looking at users sorted by received likes, It’s nice to see that our very own Brandon is the leader and #11 Aave CEO Stani is sandwiched between two members of this Hub.
A big shout out to these two members @SplurgyCleric and @Zac not forgetting @AMPL_Kirby and @jmcadg that are also in the top 10 according to received likes on the Aave governance forum. You guys have done a fantastic job of promoting Ample!
Now to get things moving we need the kGeyser challenge met in one way or another so we can start distribution of kMPL that will be used along with AMPL for voting on our proposals. 1 kMPL is worth 1k AMPL when it comes to voting, so that’s the token you want in order to have an impact. I do believe we have the core of our community here already, but it is still vitally important we reach that 500 signups through organic means.
That means everyone needs to do their part. Some of you have shown a great deal of dedication and having a family member or a friend sign up as a show of support would be fine.
There’s 17000 members in the Ampleforth Protocol TG, surely you could get people from there to sign up by engaging them in conversation and asking anyone you have an interaction with to take a look at forum.amplesense.io/register
Retweeting on twitter is also important, since it’s not only your twitter followers that see this but also algorithms. Quoted retweets work better and there are a few related tweets that link to the challenge as well, retweet and like them too.
So get out there on all the different forums and bring it up in conversations far and wide all weekend long and we will reach that 500 in no time at all and by Monday we will be mining kMPL with AMPL in positive rebase from the demand spike following the release of Zeus
If you can think of any other ideas, please share them here, so everyone can try them out, and good luck with the recruiting, we are counting on you!
I had some trouble making it work my self, I think I filled out the quiz 4 times. It should work if you complete the steps in the right order so you might have to take the quiz again after clicking the links.
