This is the 3rd Proposal of Terra DAO, and not a “monthly” proposal, as more than two months have passed since our previous proposal. And it is pretty likely that this proposal will also probably be extended like the previous one. Despite HNY value going down, we have managed to survive for longer than expected
This proposal will be for the continuation of the Terra DAO. This DAO was established to be centered around rewarding translations based on metrics discussed in this proposal. The main goals of Terra have been to translate documentation from other swarms, keep the wiki updated in every language, and act like “ambassadors” in communities, who feel excluded due to the language barrier.
The idea has been to set up a bounty system like the one being used in Buzz. All the lists of completed bounties can be seen on our Notion board.
The past two months has been one of the busiest for Terra DAO, always at work to provide the community with translations of the most important articles and updates. Every bounty for translations has been claimed and delivered in a very short amount of time. Most translations are in Spanish, Turkish, Italian, French, Portuguese, German, but a few bounties have been opened for Romanian as well. Plus, we have migrated to Colony due to the bugs we encountered in our Aragon DAO.
Here a list of the original articles, translated in the aforementioned languages:
- Bridge xDAI → BSC
- Bridge xDAI → Polygon
- Monthly Recap, 9th February → 21st March
- Monthly Recap - March 22 → April 25
- Updated 1Hive FAQ and Agave FAQ
- 1Hive: Introduction to Celeste
- Agave Development Updates:
- Partnership with Xion (We have translated their wiki and got paid in XGT)
- Worked as an outsource contractor for SATO; translated 2 of their articles into Spanish, French and Russian as they required and got paid in SATO. Spanish, French, Russian.
- Opened up a Turkish Twitter account.
Note: In the previous proposal, we requested most of the funding in anticipation of Agave platform and its upcoming Wiki. As it was delayed, we decided to become flexible and used those funds for the translation of Agave Weekly Updates in addition to the tutorials.
For the payments of translations, we have checked and established an industry standard, which is around $0.11 per word; and the total breakdown of all the translations payments can be seen in this sheet: Terra Payments
After experiencing some problems with the Medium platform, on April 13th the Swarm had a community call and decided to create a Gitbook page to collect all its material. (We haven’t done this yet as Medium recovered our account and we actually want to use Medium; but if they do so in the future, we will migrate to Gitbook as the safest platform.)
In the following weeks, 1Hive will be expanding with the launch on Polygon and the new sustainable farming on both xDai and Polygon networks. As these farms will be unique, there will be new documentation and promotional texts, which will come from Buzz DAO as well. Accordingly, we will continue to translate these articles and also update Honeyswap section in the Wiki to our selected languages.
We also expect new developments from Agave and their continuation of Weekly Updates until the platform launch. So, as we have done so far, we will also maintain the translation of Agave articles on our international social channels.
Another thing we will be undertaking will be the weekly recaps and translations of these into languages we believe will be useful. We think those weekly recaps are rather valuable in disseminating information about what’s going on in 1Hive, especially considering the fact that we do not have a full-detailed Roadmap. We will be doing this by setting up bounties as we have done during the previous period.
