A Comprehensive and Dynamic 1Hive Roadmap
As a layperson with no experience in writing code or with the backend/inner workings of blockchain technology, becoming part of the 1Hive community has been quite an eye-opening experience. If an average person were interested in seeing the potential of blockchain and decentralized organizations, they would need to look no further than 1Hive. In my first week or two, it felt like every other comment on the Discord was about some mysterious project or swarm of which I had no understanding (or more importantly, context).
Newcomers with no tech background may have a difficult time when they enter the 1Hive community. It’s hard to engage when you don’t have the technical background required to have higher level discussions about the project. It’s hard to join the Discord and automatically engage the community. Oftentimes new community members demonstrate enthusiasm, but they may not know how to contribute to the DAO. This is likely because they are lacking something extremely important — context — and that is what this proposal is all about, providing newcomers with context.
- What is a DAO?
- What is conviction voting and why does it matter?
- How can I vote and what happens when a proposal passes?
- What is a swarm?
- How can I contribute to the community with my skills?
- What projects are people working on in the background?
- What is Celeste?
- Will there ever be a bridgeable Honey on the Ethereum mainnet?
- Will HNY ever be tradable on other exchanges?
To be brief, I believe it would be largely beneficial if 1Hive had a sort of “working roadmap” so questions similar to the above could be answered upon learning about the project. I’m imagining a pseudo-infographic that outlines the 1Hive goals, the long-term technologic plans, and the long-term community plans. Of course, the day-to-day in this group and this space is constantly changing and therefore it is important we keep this roadmap dynamic, fluid, and malleable to account for unpredictable events or updates.
I do not believe I have a deep enough understanding of all of the inner workings of 1Hive to contribute to writing out a roadmap. However, I do hope that if there was enough community support for such a roadmap to be developed, those who may be better positioned to create a roadmap would consider making it happen. I think it would greatly improve newcomer satisfaction and understanding of the project and we may see more retention of new members if they knew, for example, that HNY was bigger than Honeyswap.
There is a serious need for a consolidated, easy-to-read, easy-to-understand overview of what 1Hive is, what 1Hive is working on, and an estimated guess of how long it may take for the technologic and community goals to come to fruition.
I’m hoping we can use this thread to discuss the possible topics that could be covered on a roadmap (eg, Celeste, prediction markets, NFT minting website, etc.). I would also like to open the floor for volunteers and users who may want to form a small group to get this done. If any swarms are interested in tackling this project please let me know, as it would be ideal if a swarm took on this project. Otherwise, post in this thread if you’re willing to help.
